"OM alters brain function," says new study

The Thomas Jefferson University has published some of the results from the first-ever study of Orgasmic Meditation!

The study conducted by the Department of Integrative Medicine and Nutritional Sciences, in collaboration with the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, confirmed OM as a true hybrid practice, able to significantly alter brain function in areas associated with sexual stimulation, as well as those associated with more traditional meditation practices.

Published in the journal, ‘Frontiers in Psychology,’ the study which looked at 20 pairs of OM partners, found that both men and women experience changes through the practice. Some of these changes are the same like “intense focus and a sense of release or flow,” while others varied between the genders.

Importantly changes were observed in the “parietal lobe, an area of the brain involved in the spatial representation of the self, and associated with feelings of oneness and connectedness during spiritual practices.”
