La petite mort - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

female orgasm is associated with decreased blood flow in the orbitofrontal cortex, a part of the brain that is crucial for behavioural control

This was posted on Wikipedia as further clarification (disambiguation) of "la petite morte" in both sexual and non-sexual senses, but I thought it may serve in some way to explain what many women have told me about impulse control and "bonding" in sexual relationships. Some have characterized it with a loss of impulse control, and mention is also made of the role of oxytocin as it relates to orgasm, pair bonding, social recognition, anxiety and maternal behaviors.
