Can’t get sex out of your mind? It turns out that when it comes to getting it on, the most important organ is not the one you’re thinking of but the one you’re thinking with! With our Playmates, Cybergirls, Amateurs and Coeds as our instructors, we’re examining the scintillating science and fascinating facts about what’s going on in the brain in regards to everything sexy.

Model: Anna Rose Chang - In the lead-up to a woman’s orgasm, more than 30 areas of her brain are activated, including the regions involved with memory, touch and reward.

Model: Mina Morgan - During sex, the part of our brain that regulates pain is affected, meaning we feel less pain. In fact, just thinking about sex can lower pain levels.

Model: Kerry Lynn - Sexual arousal overrides the brain’s natural disgust response; what you might normally find gross changes if you’re turned on.

Model: Tara Barker - According to one study, men think about food and sleep as frequently as they think about sex.

Model: Shera Bechard - When women orgasm, the area of the brain responsible for anxiety and alertness (known as the amygdala) temporarily shuts down.

Model: Ashley Ann - Your brain shows more activity when you look at naked people than fully clothed folks.
