# Pleasurable sneezing

## Recommended Posts

At the moment I've got a really horrible cold and have been in bed for most of the day, however there is a plus side as I seem to be sneezing every minute which I enjoy far too much.

Assuming that i'm not the only one that finds it enjoyable, do any of you know why sneezing is so good. I have often heard people say that sneezing is connected to an orgasm but I can't find anything to back it up. I'm assuming that there must be some neurological reason i.e. release of neurotransmitters but can't find any info.

Anyway, any of you know why?

It's not exactly the same as what you're talking about but snopes did a thing on the 8 sneezes = orgasm.

I have no idea why but I've heard of it. I had a friend who used to sneeze and then you hear him exclaim "yes!" like he just won something. He said the best sneeezes were when he got multiple ones...

I on the other hand find sneezing really anoying and irritating, get no sense of pleasure from it at all. Really y'all sound a bit nutty to me.

Ah I wish that were true, I would have been having multiple orgasms all day. Interesting link though thanks.

Woman: (sneezes and moans several times)

Man: "Excuse me, but is everything OK?"

Woman: "Yes, it's just that I have this condition where every time I sneeze I have an orgasm."

Man: "Yikes! Are you taking anything for it?"

Woman: (smiling) "Pepper."

This was this one drug that made a small percent of people who used it have orgasms whenever they yawned.

IIRC, sneezing and orgasm are both accompanied by a rapid release of Histamines, perhaps this is reason?

AFAIK, anti histamines are often used as anti depressants so you would expect that a release of histamines should have the opposite effect.

well according to studies that Ive read, even foods rich in Histidine can be a factor in premature ejaculation and heightened orgsam sensations for both sexes.

Apparantly it's an anti depressant called clomipramine but only 5% of people have the whole yawn orgasm thing, while the rest have opposite effects finding orgasm harder to reach.

Who knows though, may be you could be one of those lucky 1/20 people.

Interesting.

I wonder if clomipramine and Histamines would be a good combination.

chlomipramine... Hmmm..

I dont know WHY anyone would ever take that stuff, it has some pretty harsh side effects, you wouldnt be "up-for-it" much anyway.

theres arent any way to take Histamines that I`m aware of either, you can take in the amino acid building blocks for it, but directly taking it? Sounds very dangerous!
