The Truth About Our Orgasm Faces

Have you ever experienced an orgasm? Sometimes when people orgasm, they might be lost in the moment and make sounds, faces, or movements that they didn't want to. If you feel like that is something you are embarrassed about, especially when your partner sees you making those faces: this article may help you. It talks about orgasm faces, what causes them and how you can get used to them and enjoy your sexual life better.

Orgasm faces are real, and they can scare people! If you've ever had an orgasm in front of someone, you know how scary it can be to look into their eyes right afterward because of how distorted your face becomes. Sometimes the noises we make during sex can be embarrassing too. We don't mean to, but some sounds get out, and we must deal with the awkwardness. Orgasm faces differ in people. This article highlights the truth about all our orgasm faces, plus advice on how to handle these situations.

What are Orgasm Faces?

When you're in the throes of passion, even if you want to make sure your partner sees what's going on with your face, it can be hard to separate yourself from the incredible sensations coursing through your body. We often lose ourselves in these rare times of pleasure and make sounds or body movements that we don't mean. The face is one area we often lose control of, and we often find ourselves making faces that might be embarrassing- at least from our perspective. According to Scott (2015), face orgasms are faces we might make when having an intense sexual stimulation or orgasm.

Many of us are not comfortable making the faces that we make during sex. Some people might believe they will be judged or ridiculed by their partner if they let themselves make these faces during sex. While some partners might get excited if they see you have an orgasm and might even encourage you to keep doing it, for others, it's quite a turn-off and can make them lose their sexual moment as well because seeing you do that is distracting to them also.

What Causes Them?

You are with your partner, enjoying a wonderful moment together; as things get hotter, you lose yourself to the rhythm and soon find yourself having an out-of-this-world sensation. It feels good to have an ejaculation. However, what sounds did you make without knowing it? Did your neighbors hear you? What did your face look like when you were at your climax? Will your partner ever look at you the same?

Regardless of any encounter we may have had, it's natural to feel second-guessed and find it hard to know what your sexual partner saw in you. According to Wassiliwizky et al. (2017), orgasm faces are caused by a sudden relaxation of muscles in the face due to excess stimulation. You can try hiding them or feeling ashamed, but it will not change anything; people will see you have an orgasm no matter how much you try not to.

Why We Do It

 Being self-conscious is normal. According to Hayes, Carpenter & Dwyer (2012), we live in a society where sex is taboo, so we tend to be shy when discussing something as personal as our sexuality. Sukel (2012) explained that we make silly faces when having an ejaculation because our brains temporarily stop working and can't control ourselves; these facial expressions happen naturally when an overload of stimuli hits us suddenly without warning.

Why Do People Fear Showing Them?

In most cases, people don't care about showing their orgasm faces during sex or having orgasms. However, those who participate in these activities do not want their partners to see them voiding an orgasm without them knowing why they did so or simply being afraid they will judge them. Of course, we might feel shy about the noises we make or the faces we make because these faces are mostly sudden, and because different muscles are relaxed, we might not be sure what we look like to our lover.

But why are people shy to show these faces that our body makes? The most probable answer is that we feel that they don't look good or not romantic or even sexy. This kind of opinion has been brought to us by others, and through its time, it has become a norm in society to judge people by their looks, especially when it comes down to sex and showing orgasm faces. However, each individual should try their best to achieve sexual happiness with themselves first before finding a partner, trying different activities and positions with them, and afterward finding out what works for them during sex. Doing so will help you move away from those images others have given you.

How Can They Affect Your Sexual Experience?

During an orgasm, every muscle in your body works overtime to release that feeling of euphoria. The more intense your orgasm, it usually leads to more intense facial expressions. Several things cause different orgasm faces: Some people's muscles go into seizure-like contractions during orgasm. Other women experience a burn or pain after their first one that makes them grimace. And other people don't like how they look when they have an orgasm and avoid showing it because of it. Whatever your reason for not enjoying your look when you have an orgasm, know that you're not alone in that thought process!

Sexual experience should be a fun and exciting way to experience pleasure and affection; it should not be an experience where one partner may feel embarrassed or shy after an ejaculation. So knowing and understanding that orgasm faces are just the norm of you enjoying an out-of-this-world sensation will help you enjoy your sexual experiences better than having anxiety. It might even help you enjoy your orgasms and experience more intense pleasure.

Conclusion

What orgasm faces show is that our physical and emotional experience of sex is inextricably linked. Your orgasm face is your most honest reflection of how you feel when you climax: whether you're feeling alone or connected; satisfied or disappointed; relaxed or stressed. For people with sexual anxiety, a non-neurotypical body, or a history of abuse, a fearful reaction to your face might be perfectly rational—but it can also mean that you're failing to recognize pleasure when it comes around. The next time someone has an orgasm face (or even acts nervous about having one), take a moment to ask yourself why. It might be difficult at first but try not to judge her reaction as good or bad.
