Ecstacy and Orgasms
    #589611 - 03/26/02 03:33 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I was just wondering what orgasms had in common with MDMA. Do orgasms do anything to seratonin levels? Because I know when I am on MDMA, everything feels good...but when I am about to orgasm, and I can extend it, even if its only like 5-10 seconds, its enough time, my arms can feel it, i rub my shoulders and neck together, or on the pillow/cushon...It is the same exactly feeling throughout my whole body MDMA gives me, people have said 'its a whole body orgasm' but to me its just an orgasm, but real extended. I've only dont it twice though, first time everythign felt real good, i just layed on stuff, feeling good melting into the ground. Second time nothing really happend. Does it get stronger than this? But my real question again. Does orgasming do anythign to seratonin levels?

One of the things orgasms do is activate your endogenous opiate receptors. I don't really know about serotonin though, maybe.

More like your dopamine receptors... that is the "pleasure center" of the brain.

Dopamine......the same receptors as opiates.....

What the hell do you mean "Dopamine......the same receptors as opiates..... "?!? Opiates have distinct receptors from dopamine receptors (kappa, mu etc...) and where is your evidence for saying that dopamine is the "pleasure centre" of the brain, i think it's a bit more fucking complex than that!
I imagine (although i can't say i know anything about it) that the neurological events underlying an orgasm are pretty complex, Dopamine recpetors have been implicated in certain so-called 'reward' pathways (i.e. thought to be involved in various forms/aspects of addiction, everything from "sex addiction"(better known as being completely fucking normal) to gambling addiction and so on)
but then 5-HT (seretonin) pathways are heavily implicated in mood. However there are complex interactions between the two (and others such as opioid) neurotransmitter systems in the form of +ve/-ve feedback loops etc...
ecstasy drastically alters either directly or indirectly probably every single transmitter system in the brain (including 5-HT) but who knows, anyway ecstasy is damn good for sex

Firstly.....easy.....
I just responded to a post. I'm not putting together any new theories you have to get upset about.

I won't go into it here but dopamine is released during sexual excitement and the dopamine receptors can be affected by opiates.....MDMA does affect the serotonin sites like Tak said and obviously he has been doing some research on this so I gave him a "heads up"....so he could research dopamine and the affects of opiates.......

Having said that,
Hey Tak,
You might also want to check out Taoism and the sexual practises about delaying ejaculation, prolonging orgasm and circulating the "chi" ....
