Tented! Did you know that 'tenting' is a sign that thefemale's body is prepared for sexé What's 'tenting', you aské Let's talk abouthow bodies get prepared for orgasmic relief. (intro: slam and discreet cough) Check out these two:William Masters and Virginia Johnson. They spent their entire sexology careerstrying to figure out what happens when we get turned on and what to do when we don't. quot;The MastersJohnson study made it possibleto follow the entire human sexual cycle:
from the first stirrings of erotic desire,through orgasm, to ultimate subsidence as objectively as 19th century physiologistshave followed the digestive cycle from mastiion to excretion. There are, of couse, minor variations fromindividual to individual, but the basic pattern is still the same.quot; Masters and Johnson welcomed participants intotheir labs by the huneds to perform over 10,000 episodes of sexual arousal,masturbation and coitus. Their findings became known as 'The HumanSexual Response' a cycle of how we get
turned on and stimulated bothphysically and psychologically. Xaxis. Yaxis. The first stage is called excitement. This is when your heart rate starts increasing,breathing rate increases, blood pressure rises, nipples become erect, and breasts enlarge. Muscles tone up, the genitals engorgewith blood like the labia changing shape, getting bigger, flattening out and spreading apart. The penis gets an erection, blood vessels becomemore pronounced and it can sometimes
doublesize. You've heard the phrase 'It's a grower,not a shower'. Then you've got the testicles elevating and the scrotum around them thickening. The clitoris also gets an erection and thenit retracts underneath the clitoral hood, so if you're looking for it when you're turned on,it's a little harder to find. A sex flush occurs50 to 75 percent ofbiosex females and 25 percent of biosex males. This is reddening of this part of the bodyand it will go away. Also part of the excitement is the vaginapreparing to take something into it.
The walls lubrie and thicken, the cervixthat separates the uterus from the vaginal canal is actually gonna lift up and move outof the way. This all works like an accordion. It makes more room for things, more thanthe 3 to 5 inches and we call it tenting! It's generally a good idea to wait topenetrate until this point. Give attention to where your body isthis cycle. If you don't notice any cues, give it somemore time and ask what it needs. The second stage is called 'plateau'. Time is still passing but the level of arousalis not changing very much.
At this time, the vaginal walls continueto tighten. They create an orgasmic platformthe firstthird of the vagina and this grips the object of insertion. The vagina, again, is going to continue totent and other changes are going to occur as well. During this stage though, more of thetenting is going to happen. Testicles raise up and enlarge by 50 percent. A gland called Cowper's releases precumwhich clears the urinary pathway so that
One topic that's rarely ever coveredUSsex eduion is vaginal discharge, which is mindboggling to me, given that it's suchan important bodily phenomenon that happens to everyone born with a vagina. Since it'ssuch an important process and can even contain important information about our health andmenstrual cycles, why doesn't anybody talk about ité I dunno, so I'm going to talk aboutit. Discharge is fluid producedglands loedthe vagina and cervix that is expelledout the vaginal opening, cleaning out bacteria and dead cells along the way. It's also naturallyacidic and plays an important roleregulating the vagina's PH and preventing infections.The look and amount of discharge will vary
from persontoperson and also changes overthe course of each individual's menstrual cycle. The look of healthy discharge can rangefrom clear and stretchy to thicker and white, and it often goes yellowish when exposed toair. A lot of people tend to release a smaller amount of thicker dischargethe coupleweeks following their period, then move on to a thinner, stretchy variety during ovulation,then revert back to the thicker stuff, buta larger amount, as they approach theirnext period. A large amount of slippery discharge is often produced during arousal and actsas a natural lubricant for sex. But again, all of this can vary significantly from persontoperson.Because vaginal discharge is so rarely discussed,
when people start experiencing it, they oftenget nervous or embarrassed or think there's something wrong. Discharge itself is completelynormal and healthy, but it can carry warning signs about your health, as the color, consistency,amount, andor smell can change if you have an infection down there. Here are a few thingsto watch out for. Thick, white, clumpy discharge resembling cottage cheese. Common sign ofa yeast infection. Lots of frothy, greenish discharge can mean trichomoniasis. Grey orgreen discharge with a fishy smell is commonbacterial vaginosis. If it appears pusyand smells bad, it could be chlamydia. And if it's odorless and abnormally creamy whiteor yellow, it could be gonorrhea. Pay attention
to your regular discharge over the courseof your menstrual cycle, so you get a sense of what's normal for you and can spot if anythingunusual happens. Other than that, just let the vagina do its thing. Trying to mess withit and get rid of its natural, healthy behaviors is just likely to leave you with irritationand possibly an infection. Normal discharge is a sign that your body is taking care ofitself and keeping you healthy, which is the most important thing. Do you have any otherquestions about discharge or other things that vaginas doé Leave them downthe comments.Thanks for watching, and I'll see you next time. time.
