My favorite sexy science writer is at it again.  

This time he is writing about orgasms.

I've blogged before about William J. Broad, the author of "The Science of Yoga: The Risks and Rewards", and his insights on the sexiness of yoga.

In a recent New York Times article by Broad, cleverly entitled, "I'll Have What She's Thinking" after this iconic scene ...


 ...Broad reports that scientists at Rutgers University are studying the neurophysiological basis of spontaneous orgasms, a type of autoeroticism seen mainly in women.

But this isn't about faking it.

In this article Broad writes about the study of 'energy orgasms' and how scientists are having female volunteers put their heads into giant machines and focus their attention on erotic fantasies. The scans reveal that the pleasure centers of their brains light up in a way indistinguishable from everyday orgasms. (I love that term).

Broad writes: 

"But the research is also illuminating a plausible neurological basis for the long intermingling of sexuality and mysticism and, in particular the teachings of tantra which arose in medieval India as a path to spiritual ecstasy."

 "Perhaps more important, it illustrates how little we really know of human physiology."

To which I would like to add:  perhaps it illustrates how little we know about a woman's orgasmic potential and her ability to reach ecstatic states without a lover or a vibrator but through her mind.

This aspect of women's sexuality fascinates me.  I've had my own experiences of spontaneous orgasms on my meditation cushion and yoga mat and it does indeed feel mystical to get so deep into my practice that I can stroke my clitoris with the touch of my breath and ignite my G-spot with a thought. 


So now you know the real reason why I am such a dedicated practitioner.

Researchers have long said that we only use about 10 percent of our brain and I'll believe it because that means there is a whole 90 percent, brimming with ecstatic potential, just waiting to be explored.

Meditation retreat anyone?

I have a lot more to say about this topic which is evident by the essays I've been drafting lately for my memoir.  

So... more to come, so to speak, on this topic.

I was wondering how the memoir was going...any bites on it yet?

So sweet of you to ask, M. No bites because I have't been fishing.

I'm obsessed right now with creating my platform: upgrading the blog to Wordpress, creating a C.C. Havens website and learning and engaging on Google +. It's consuming but exciting~helping me hone in on my audience, my message, etc.

John Ellis from Portland Internet Designs is my guru~I love him. He has a soft spot in his big heart for writers. He has devised a program for teaching writers how to use and maximize the web. It's amazing. I highly recommend him.

Once I get all that lined out, I'll go back to a final edit on the memoir. maybe approach some publishers. The essays keep coming which is great. So maybe I'll have a sequel~the second is coming out mostly spiritual somewhat erotic.

How about you?

Some condoms play a big role in orgasm
