Orgasm synethesia killed the cat......

But satisfaction brought it back.

Listen up men of MN. A recent thread had me wondering if my orgasms are a bit bland. It's apparent that quite a few MNters see a glorious array of colours, and in some cases infrastructure, during climax. Not to mention, hearing bagpipes, orchestra etc.

This has me wondering if it's something exclusive to the female orgasm or if some men also experience it? And if so, what do they see?

I don't want this to turn into a TAAT, but curiosity has got the better of me.

No, that's ridiculous. They're having you on. TBH, not sure women actually get orgasms. Not like Men do, obviously.

Anyway, I'd say it is more grunting and sighing than rainbows.

This’ll be interesting!

EinsteinsArousedSausagesHCB · 28/04/2018 16:58

Ah dadtoseven, are you the hairy handed Mumof7's bf? Biscuit

What do you mean? My hands are fine. I just said what I think.

gamerchick · 28/04/2018 17:17

Anyone who thinks that woman don’t get orgasims is obviously a bit shit in the sack tbh.

MrsBodger · 28/04/2018 17:18

Oh come on - where are all the clever posters? I could do with a laugh.

Bagpipes?! Dear god, I'd hope not! - well, not the Scottish ones anyway.

SomeKnobend · 28/04/2018 17:33

I agree someone's having you on! Bagpipes and colours, what the fuck?! You get an explosively intense peak of sexual pleasure around the clitoris and vagina general area lasting I dunno up to 10 seconds maybe and everything gets very wet (even more than it already was). No hallucinating about colours or music! I imagine it must be pretty similar to a man's orgasm so you really don't have to imagine that hard.

Dadof7 you're clearly doing it wrong!

EinsteinsArousedSausagesHCB · 28/04/2018 17:43

SomeKnobhead, What now? Are you seriously mansplaining the female orgasm? Hmm

I have been wondering on the HCB thread if men hear "GOAL!!!" while crowds of supporters cheer them on. Wink

But seriously, I really am curious to know if some men also experience orgasm synesthesia?

OP posts:
MyFamilyAndOtherAnimals1 · 28/04/2018 17:50

synesthesia is one of the weirdest brain-malfunctions (if I'm allowed to call it that?!! Confused
... it would be pretty cool to have (also from a non-sexual point of view!)
... I wonder if there are any downsides? - apart from, obviously, hearing bagpipes... Grin

MyFamilyAndOtherAnimals1 · 28/04/2018 17:52
  • also, as a female, can I just point out that it doesn't happen to us (sorry for ruining that dream!) - I think most of us just have bog standard big O's!?!

I think you would probably have to have the condition in the first place. - and isn't it quite rare?
EinsteinsArousedSausagesHCB · 28/04/2018 18:00

MyFamily, I am aware that it "doesn't just happen to us" as I've never experienced it either. However, it obviously does happen to some of us. I'm wondering if it also happens to some men, and if they experience it in the same way.

IHeartKingThistle · 28/04/2018 18:06

It is a thing. It happens to me and I don't have any other type of synaesthesia. But I'm not elaborating on Dadsnet!

esk1mo · 28/04/2018 18:07

i go partially deaf for 5-10 mins after i orgasm Blush apparently its quite common...

EinsteinsArousedSausagesHCB · 28/04/2018 18:08

No need to elaborate IHeart Smile, although can I just ask, are you male or female?

OP posts:
IHeartKingThistle · 28/04/2018 18:10

I'm female Smile

EinsteinsArousedSausagesHCB · 28/04/2018 18:10

Ooh that's interesting esk1mo, I've never heard that before.

Of course I see plenty of blurring floaty colours during sex. I can't really focus on the telly that well with my specs off.....

MVLipwig · 28/04/2018 18:22

I definitely get colours! No music that would be strange, although maybe I’ll shag a Scot and see if I get bagpipes! But I get orange for slow drawn out orgasms, and blues for really intense fast ones. Sometimes get other colours too and I haven’t figured out why yet

Cheers Einstein Wink

EinsteinsArousedSausagesHCB · 28/04/2018 19:37

Cheers sassy! I may experience a psychedelic blur of colour after a few, I find Wine usually has that effect. Grin

Esk1mo, MVLipwig, Male or female?

I've cracked open a stubby, waiting to hear all about it.

EinsteinsArousedSausagesHCB · 28/04/2018 21:31

Oh of course pickle! I was so thrilled to get any responses that I forgot to ask. Blush

So yes, what pickle said......?
