Science Of Orgasms: Sex Talk Just Got A Little Nerdy

Ever wonder the science behind the orgasm but were too afraid to ask?

Well, this fun instructional cartoon from AsapSCIENCE provides a great tour on what happens inside the body and brain during climax -- and the differences between men and women.

How does our genital blood flow interact with our brain and heartbeat? The video tries to illustrate how our brain, nerves and blood all work when we're feeling the Big O.

And how we feel orgasms also differs between men and women. For the fellas, the video says there are contractions of the anal sphincter, the prostate gland and the penis muscles, while for the ladies the uterus, vagina, pelvic muscles and anus feel the most contractions.

Oh, and in case you're at the office -- it's safe for work!
