A new study by scientists from the University of Cardiff (UK) shows that it is more difficult for women to have an orgasm after taking a course of anti-aging procedures with botulinum injections.
According to a study by Cardiff University, women have difficulty getting an orgasm after a Botox course, writes theguardian.com.
The researchers decided to test how the muscles that botulinum affects are associated with sexual arousal. They observed a small group of women before and after Botox injections. Half of them showed a significant decrease in sexual satisfaction.
Study Leader, Dr. Michael Lewis, says: “This is an example of how the facial muscles not only reflect what we feel, but influence our senses.”
But why is facial expression associated with a sense of pleasure? The human brain constantly makes predictions, which, in turn, affect physiology. If we think we are approaching a climax, a corresponding expression appears on our face. If this does not happen, the brain concludes that we are not experiencing pleasure, and sends an appropriate signal to the body.
