Do you sometimes tense up or get a cramp from those weird toe curls and groin aches? During orgasm, activity in your cerebellum is increasing and is responsible for the muscle tension you get when you’re sexually stimulated. There’s also some activity happening in the brain in areas that are responsible for pleasure and pain! It might explain why you grimace or frown when you orgasm!

Your brain activity goes totally through the roof before as you climax. Okay, we don’t claim to know what this all means but here’s what happens… So first your genitals send a signal to your limbic system which controls all your emotions, then activity increases in the anterior cingulate cortex and the insular cortex, and then the hypothalamus and nucleus accumbens are activated when you climax.
