While some might suggest the human brain dematerializes at orgasm, scientists are learning that it’s a whole brain kind of experience. Kayt Sukel, author of DIRTY MINDS: HOW OUR BRAINS INFLUENCE LOVE, SEX AND RELATIONSHIPS, is one of the few women in the world who has had her brain scanned at the point of sexual climax in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner. She will openly discuss her own experience, what scientists are learning about the big O—and explain why its study has implications for our understanding of pain, pleasure and human consciousness.
