All About The "Birthgasm"
There are many type of orgasm – clitoral, internal, anal, G-spot, nipple and even toe. However, have you ever heard of a “Birthgasm?” I am very sure knowing what most people do about birth, and what occurs during birth, that the thought of orgasm is far, far from your mind. Is it possible to have an orgasm during an undeniably painful process like childbirth? Furthermore, can you use orgasms to help ease the pain of childbirth and contractions? Read on and find out.
ORGASMS AS PAIN RELIEF
Most people have heard that orgasms can ease the pain of menstrual cramps and headaches, but the pain of childbirth contractions? Really? When a woman has an orgasm endorphins are released into the blood stream and oxytocin levels increase in the body. Endorphins block pain receptors in the body, so when the body is in orgasm these levels are higher, often resulting in natural pain fighting. Furthermore, oxytocin, known as “the love hormone” is released and this powerful neurotransmitter works to combat pain, and increase the pleasure.
OXYTOCIN and CHILDBIRTH
As described above, oxytocin is a naturally occurring hormone during orgasm, but it is also a hormone that aids in childbirth by strengthening contractions. The stronger the contractions, the faster the childbirth experience. Therefore, having an orgasm can help to naturally speed up the delivery process. Amazing.
THE PAIN / PLEASURE PATHWAY
Both pain and pleasure travel on the same nerve pathway in the body. So, sometimes a mixture of pain / pleasure can result in MORE pleasure than pain. Some women decide to deliberately stimulate themselves via masturbation (or even with a vibrator) in order to force the pain away and induce the pleasure. This can cause an orgasm or orgasms even during the decidedly painful moments of childbirth.

A completely separate phenomenon is the birthgasm. Birthgasm is the phenomenon where orgasm occurs during birth, specifically while the baby is actually exciting the birth canal. How is this possible?
Firstly, the vaginal canal has nerves in it which, when stimulated, cause pleasure during intercourse. The baby passes through this same canal so the logical leap can be made that the baby can cause pleasure. Secondly, the G-Spot is a highly sensitive spot inside the vagina that causes intense pleasure – and sometimes G-Spot orgasm – when stimulated. When the baby is in the birth canal the G-Spot is often stimulated very hard and constantly (as birth is not a fast process usually). This constant G-Spot stimulation is often very pleasurable for many women and can, in some instances, cause orgasm! Thirdly, the naturally occurring hormone oxytocin (which is present in both orgasm and childbirth) can aid in tapping into the pleasure portion of childbirth.
CAN ANYONE DO IT?
The phenomenon of birthgasm is still being investigated and as such the data is still being collected. The question of “can I make myself have a birthgasm” is one many pregnant woman are asking. The answer seems to be that you should never TRY to have a birthgasm, but instead should allow yourself to fully feel all the sensations during childbirth and use, if you would like, the methods of orgasm to help negate and reduce some of the pain associated with childbirth. There is no guarantee that having an orgasm will reduce the pain for ALL women. Some women are more pain intolerant and no matter what are going to experience pain during childbirth. Others may be able to switch between the pain and the pleasure. No one really knows for sure. The only sure thing is that childbirth is a wonderful experience, with or without the orgasm!
