Wearing Socks During Sex Increases Chances of Orgasms

Wearing Socks During Sex Increases Chances of Orgasms

A recent study conducted by researchers from the University of Wageningen in the Nederlands, found that the ability for men and women to orgasm during sex rose significantly if they slapped on a pair of socks.

Wow.  How did they figure that one out?

Well, the “Orgasmic Sock Effect” was first discovered during a 2011 study by Johns Hopkins University.   During that study, couples where having sex while undergoing brain scanning, so researchers could investigate how psychological states and physical stimulation affect people’s ability to orgasm.

During the study, the participants began to complain about the cool temperatures in the scanning room, so the researchers gave the couples pairs of socks to wear in order to do the deed in relative comfort.  What they found afterward was quite astonishing.  Providing the couples with socks helped increase their ability to orgasm from 50% to 80%.

The University of Wageningen study focused on whether socks could indeed increase the ability to orgasm, and guess what?  It did, from 50% to 80%.

OK . . . .  How does it work?

Researchers surmised that keeping feet warm allowed for a more comfortable state in which to enjoy the sexual experience.  This level of comfort allowed the couples to be more relaxed and focused on their activity.

So, to make the evening perfect, don’t forget the music, the candles, and a comfy pair of tube socks.

    Could it not just as easily have been the chilly room was lowering their ability to orgasm, and ANY method of increasing warmth and comfort would have increased their ability to orgasm? If you’re often doin’ it in cold rooms, then socks may be an option, but more than likely, if they compared fully naked people in a warm comfortable room with those wearing socks in a chilly and less comfortable room, they would probably find the results would be about the same, maybe even better in the warm and comfortable room. This is less science, and more drawing hasty conclusions from minimal data.
