Does orgasm lower cortisol levels in men?

Korion- I would urge you not to self-censor...even your dick posts.

Meat: beaten to harden or beaten to tenderize?

Oh man. I wanted to ask a similar question, but thought it'd get deleted like my "did my penis grow" post.

Yes, it does: See pages 4 and 5 for charts.

Specificity of the neuroendocrine response to orgasm during sexual arousal in men: Journal of Endocrinology (2003) 177, 57???64


Please note the orgasm method in the paper was masturbation to erotic films.

It also works for females who have an average or above average sexual drive.

Cortisol, Sexual Arousal, and Affect in Response to Sexual Stimuli: J Sex Med 2008;5:2111???2118

Heiman's Study sounded more fun: Heiman et al. examined women???s endocrine responses to erotic stimuli by having an experimental group watch two 18-minute erotic films separated by 80 minutes, and a control group to watch a nonsexual documentary for 18 minutes followed by an erotic film 80 minutes later [3]. Blood was sampled continuously throughout the films. Both groups showed a nonsignificant decline in cortisol over the course of the study. Exton et al. noted similar results in 10 women who watched a film series consisting of a 20-minute documentary, a 20- minute erotic film, and a second 20-minute documentary 1. Ten minutes into the erotic film, participants were instructed to masturbate until orgasm.

Probably.

Oxytocin, released during/after orgasm, and often called "the trust drug" as it seems to regulate sense of bonding and pairing, is being researched for anxiety and stress help.

Oxytocin: the Great Facilitator of Life

Of course, the research was done on rats, so ... YMMV.

It does, which leads to wondering why so many old-fashioned sports coaches forbade sex for athletes before competition....
