We all know the drill when it comes to the female orgasm: foreplay is essential, clit stimulation is encouraged and p-in-v action isn’t the be all and end all. That said, the big O can’t be guaranteed, which is why we’re always keen to learn a nifty trick or two.
But this one is arguably the weirdest we’ve heard yet.
According to a study from the Technical University of Dresden in Germany, blowing your nose is the key to climaxing.
Researchers asked 70 young adults to rank their sex lives. They found that women with the sharpest sense of smell were up to six times more likely to reach an orgasm
And no, this has nothing to do with sneezes feeling like a mini orgasm or your nose being a pseudo-G-spot. It’s simply coz your scent plays a big role in arousal – and if your schnoz is all congested, you’ll be less sensitive to your partner’s pheromones and body odour.
“The findings suggest having a head cold and blocked nose may make arousal more difficult,” psychotherapist Phillip Hodson told The Sun.
“Clearing the nose may be a useful strategy.”
