Scientists found why do women have orgasms
Scientists have found a clue to one of the great mysteries of the female orgasm - why human beings evolved it in the first place. Researchers now believe that the orgasm is an 'evolutionary gift' from older lineages of animals that only ovulate during sex. The response necessary for ovulation in animals such as rabbits was preserved in humans, the scientists believe. Yale University's Gunter Wagner said: 'It is not a reproductive feature but another, the significance of which we still need to understand.'
Researchers injected rabbits with fluoxetine, an anti-depressant known to reduce the ability to achieve orgasm. They found that rabbits treated with the drug ovulated 30 percent less, hinting that there was a biological link between copulation-induced ovulation and the female orgasm. Wagner said: 'This is important to our understanding female sexuality.'
