The Science of Stress, Orgasm and Creativity: How the Brain and the Vagina Conspire in Consciousness

“To understand the vagina properly is to realize that it is not only coextensive with the female brain, but is also, essentially, part of the female soul.”




“The more closely we analyze what we consider ‘sexy,’” philosopher Alain de Botton argued in his meditation on sex, “the more clearly we will understand that eroticism is the feeling of excitement we experience at finding another human being who shares our values and our sense of the meaning of existence.” 

But in his attempt to counter the reductionism that frames human sexuality as a mere physiological phenomenon driven solely by our evolutionary biology, de Botton overcompensates by reducing in the opposite direction, negating the complex interplay of brain and biology, psychology and physiology, that propels the human sexual experience. That’s precisely what Naomi Wolf examines in Vagina: A New Biography — a fascinating exploration of the science behind the vastly misunderstood mind-body connection between brain and genitalia, consciousness and sexuality, the poetic and the scientific. 

Wolf writes,
"For women, sexual response involves entering an altered state of consciousness. … In women, the biology of arousal is more delicate than most of us understand, and it depends significantly on this sensitive, magical, slowly calmed, and easily inhibited system."

"In 2010, male Yale students gathered at a “Take Back the Night” event, where their female classmates were marching in a group, protesting against sexual assault. The young men chanted at the protesters, “No means yes and yes means anal.” Some of the young women brought a lawsuit against the university, arguing that tolerating such behavior created an unequal educational environment. Ethically they are in the right, and neurobiologically they are right as well. "

You're being lied to.

A snake oil salesman won't hesitate to lie right to your face to make a buck, and Big Pharma is no different.

Brands like Viagra, Cialis, and others are raking in billions by keeping you ignorant to the truth about erectile dysfunction.

The fact of the matter is that reversing your ED...

And ensuring it never returns...

...doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg, or even require embarrassing trips to your doctor.

Sound too good to be true? Watch the video below, you won't believe how effective safe and easy all-natural ED treatment can be!

===> Big Pharma is LYING to Your Face about Erectile Dysfunction <=====

WARNING: Big Pharma does not want you, or anyone, to see this information
Their so called "cure" for ED doesn't really solve the underlying problem.

And why would they?

If they were offering a permanent solution to ED, they'd lose all of their customers and go bankrupt.
But the truth is that erectile dysfunction CAN be permanently reversed...

...and turn you into the kind of sexual tyrannosaurus that women uncontrollably lust after the process.

===> What Big Pharma Doesn't Want You to Know About Erectile Dysfunction <=====

P.S. Apparently Big Pharma is on a witch hunt to take down videos like this. If they find out about this, it may not be around much longer so watch the short video now while you still have time! ===> Proof Of REAL Growth <=====
