    Now...if I could only find a small, portable, hand-held brain scanner......

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (Reuters) -- Women may be able to fool their partners by faking an orgasm but a brain scanner will catch them every time, a conference heard on Monday.

    Researchers at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands have used scans to show that different areas of the brain are stimulated during an orgasm but are not activated when a woman fakes it.

    "Women can imitate orgasm quite well," Gert Holstege told a fertility meeting on Monday. "But there is nothing really happening in the brain."

    He and colleagues took brain scans of 13 women and 11 men, aged 19-49 who had volunteered for the study, while they were being sexually stimulated by their partner and during an orgasm and compared them to images of their brains at rest.

    "We wanted to know what the brain was doing during orgasm," Holstege said.

    When women genuinely achieved an orgasm, areas of the brain involved in fear and emotion were deactivated. Those areas stayed alert however when women were faking it.

    The researchers also found that the cortex, which is linked with consciousness, is active during a fake orgasm but not during the real thing.

    "The deactivation of these very important parts of the brain might be the most important thing necessary to have an orgasm," said Holstege.

    "It means that if you are fearful or at a very high level of anxiety, then it is very difficult to have sex because you really have to let yourself go," he added.

    The brain scans for men during orgasm were less conclusive, according to Holstege.

    But they did show that different parts of the male and female brain are activated and deactivated during sexual stimulation.

    The researchers found less deactivation in the males in the areas of the brain linked to emotion and fear when they were sexually stimulated.

    They are now planning further studies to compared the male and female brains during orgasm.

    About 5,300 delegates are attending the four-day meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology.

    Funny you mention this - Just a few minutes ago I found this story about they did a brain scan of a guy during an actual orgasm, to see what his mind was doing...Interesting results:

    There is however a postitive correlation between brain size and the ability to juggle.

    If you have a sensitive, caring man who knows how to treat you right, you NEVER have to fake an orgasm.
    I have never understood the concept of faking orgasms. Do guys just expect women to orgasm every time?
    If you ain't bringing it, I ain't faking it.
