Woman claims she orgasms using her mind alone, and a study seems to back that up

A woman claims to have reached the holy grail of mental power: After a “tantric training” she can apparently reach orgasm without genital stimulation – in other words, she can literally think her way through.

Sounds too good to be true? A new case report published in the journal Sexual Medicine aims to back up her claims, showing elevated hormones linked to orgasm after the experience.

It’s worth noting that the study’s second author is actually the test subject, a woman named Karolin Tsarski, who sells online courses based on women learning to “awaken and connect more deeply with their sexual energy, their feminine essence.” and her deep yoni to produce wisdom”. As a result, she sought out an expert in the field to validate her claims, although her position as an author and her involvement in data analysis increases the potential for bias.

There’s also a video (which makes for relatively NSFW viewing – you’ve been warned) of the entire study process.

Typically induced by genital stimulation, an orgasm involves the excitement of neural pathways, resulting in a surge of hormones and a state of euphoria. Some women claim to be able to control both the onset and duration of orgasm through tantric training, but actual evidence for this is limited.

However, there’s ample evidence that people orgasm in a number of scenarios they wouldn’t expect – whether it’s while they’re sleeping, exercising, or just looking at pictures. This suggests that there is a type of “top-down” control of orgasms that scientists don’t yet fully understand.

In this case study, Tsarski developed the ability to induce orgasm without genital stimulation and several biological metrics were used to try and understand how she does it.

By taking blood samples before, during and after a spontaneously induced orgasm, the levels of luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone, free testosterone and prolactin in their blood were compared to determine changes. This was also done during a period when she was reading only one book as a control.

Prolactin, in particular, is an effective marker of orgasm quality—an increase in prolactin indicates an orgasm similar to that produced by genital stimulation.

After a 5-minute spontaneous orgasm, the woman’s blood prolactin levels increased by 25 percent, while a 10-minute orgasm increased the level by 48 percent. The other hormones did not show a similar pattern, although luteinizing hormone increased during the 5-minute session.

These results suggest that Tsarski can induce an orgasmic state using only her mind and tantric training, suggesting that while most orgasms are induced from the bottom up, it may be possible to resort to fantasy to create an almost identical condition without inducing the need for genital stimulation.

The actual mechanisms at play remain a complex dance between the brain and nervous system that has yet to be fully understood, but years of training (according to Tsarski at least) in yoga and tantra can facilitate a state of mind that can control an orgasmic state—although it does sounds like one method is certainly easier than the other.
