Here's How Having Sex Can Actually Relieve Pain



Big news. No, scratch that. HUGE news. Gigantic news. Ginormous news. Best news you've heard all day. OK, have I talked it up enough? Are you SO HYPED? Thought so.

Well, in case you missed the memo, this Sunday is National Orgasm Day (yes, that's an actual thing and, yes, it's actually today). What better way to celebrate such a glorious day than with some fun facts?! Answer? None. There is no better way.

The sexperts over at VSPOT MediSpa are doing their part to help you raise your "VQ." And I've come baring their gifts of knowledge.

First and foremost, what you should know is being able to orgasm as a female is basically a superpower. I'm serious. Like, when people ask if you could have any superpower, which would you choose? You have got to stop saying "super strength" because YOU ALREADY HAVE THAT.

I know I sound like the crazy lady yelling random things on the street as you walked to lunch earlier but I swear this is a legit thing. Turns out the best cure for your headache might not be an Advil after all... it could just be a little nookie.

Yep, that's right. Having sex apparently does wonders when it comes to pain relief. First of all, an orgasm can relieve pain for about 10 minutes after climax. So next time you and bae wake up after a wild night on the town and you literally feel like your head might physically combust at any given moment, don't be so quick to slap his grimy paws off you. A little sweet sweet lovin' might be your best bet for a quick fix to that pounding headache.

Additionally, a woman's pain threshold can increase up to 107 percent during climax. 107 percent!!! That is actually insane. So not only is it relieving you of pain, but it's also making you numb to it. Pretty cool, if you ask me.

Oh yeah and in case you missed that one part... you can still have an orgasm even when you're like 100. BOW CHICKA WOW WOW.
