When we have an ache or a pain, we go to the doctor, get our meds, and call it a night. Natural chemicals such as dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin are released during an orgasm, making us feel happy, flushed, warm, or sleepy, says Brown University Health Promotion. When they enter the bloodstream, these chemicals can induce both pleasure-enhancing and pain-relieving sensations. Our pain threshold raises during an orgasm, making us more equipped to block the pain. Next time you have pain, aim for an orgasm instead of reaching for an aspirin.

For me, I like to fill up a water bottle, warm it up in the microwave, and then hold it against my stomach. To each their own. I have not read any clear evidence about this. Orgasm causes your brain to release some feel-good chemicals that might actually have a relaxing effect on your body and your mood.
As women, we all know it, dread it, and are sometimes even thankful that we get it — I'm talking about our monthly period. We all know the constant throbbing and cramping pains that come with it. According to the Mayo Clinic, your uterus contracts to help expel its lining during your period.
Every time someone posts something asking for tips about cramp remedies , a certain percentage of folks jump into the fray talking up the healing powers of orgasms. It absolutely does not work for me because I feel entirely out of the mood when I'm doubled over in pain with blood being released from my loins like that elevator in The Shining. The first time I attempted the ol' Orgasm Remedy, I masturbated on my own but the pain overwhelmed me and I had to stop. The second time I started up right when my period started but the cramps hadn't set in. I had an ok orgasm that seemed to be purely physical.
