The area has been dubbed the “Orgasm Button,” but where exactly is the spot on the body? According Eastern medicine researchers, it is located 3 fingerbreadths below the belly button and can be stimulated by applying pressure. In the world of acupressure and chakras, the area is referred to as the Sea of Energy and pressure should be applied to it for 2 to 3 minutes.
But can the Sea of Energy lead you to a flood of sexual pleasure? Urologist Dr. Jennifer Berman put it to the test and unfortunately revealed, “I tried this last night, pressing on it, and I did not have an orgasm.”
Michael Reed Gach, Ph.D., director of Acupressure.com and author of Acupressure for Lovers – whose study was cited in the research of the “Orgasm Button” – claims, “The [area] is good for all kinds of sexual problems for men and women. The abdominal muscles often tighten during lovemaking, which can block the flow of sexual energy. Pressing [the spot] and acupressure points around it, can relieve the abdominal tension, strengthen the urinary and reproductive systems, and increase sexual intimacy and pleasure.”
Regardless of the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the area, ER physician Dr. Travis Stork reminds the audience that keeping an open mind when it comes to sex is always best. “Guys, we have to be aware of other body parts in other areas and be willing to explore,” he says.
Tells us, have you had any luck navigating your Sea of Energy?
