As any child of the 80s remembers – this is your brain on drugs.  But did you also know that this is your brain during an orgasm?

Dutch professor Gert Holstege and his research team observed that the neurological response during orgasm their reserach subjects was remarkably similar to the effects of heroin.  Scientists believe that the brain does have a pleasure centre or reward circuit, which can be stimulated by laughter, certain forms of drug use and of course…sex!

    From Trainspotting:

    Mark “Rent-boy” Renton: [narrating] Take the best orgasm you’ve ever had… multiply it by a thousand, and you’re still nowhere near it.

    Allison: It beats any meat injection. That beats any fucking cock in the world.
