Orgasmic Meditation: The Science Behind What's In It For The Stroker
by Mark Gottlieb Apr 28, 2014
In my initial article entitled, “Bio-Electric Fields from the Clitoris”, I elaborated on my idea that when the clitoris is stroked, hundreds of nerves are simultaneously stimulated to fire. This causes the simultaneous movement of electric charge in each of these nerves, resulting in the creation of a magnetic field capable of inducing the movement of electric charge by electromagnetic induction in the adjacent nerves in the stroker’s stroking finger. Reese Jones called this inductive coupling, when I mentioned it to him. I would like to develop this concept further and show how the finger-clit interface becomes a sophisticated step-down transformer that enables much of what is central in an OM, namely; the ability of the stroker to feel into the sensation he or she is experiencing and to use that ability to feel into the sensation as a guide to stroking in a way that maximizes the sensation.
First, a word about transformers. When I was young, my parents gave me an electric train set. A key element of this set was a transformer that changed, or transformed, the voltage coming into the house to a voltage suitable for operating the electric train. The theory behind the transformer is that electric charge moving in a conducting element creates a magnetic field that will induce the movement of electric charge in an adjacent conducting element. In the electric train set, it was a transformer made up of two separate coils of wires. One coil, the primary coil, carried the current coming into the house. The second coil, called the secondary coil, had a different number of coils, or loops of wire, and had a current induced in it from the magnetic field produced by the current in the first coil. This is some of the “magic” of electromagnetism, or should I say, “eletromagicism.”
If the number of coils or loops of wire in the primary coil is greater than the number of coils or loops of wire in the secondary coil, we have a step-down transformer. One feature of the step-down transformer is that the current in the secondary coil is increased in direct proportion to the ratio of the number of coils or loops of wire in the primary and secondary coils. The voltage in the secondary coil is reduced in direct proportion to this ratio. So, what does this have to do with OM?
In researching this topic, I learned that the clitoris has over 8,000 nerves concentrated in a very small area. More so, these nerves are clustered, or concentrated in 10 spots on the clitoris, so each spot would have about 800 nerves on the average. Looking at clits the way I do, conscientious stroker that I am, and considering their size, I estimated that a spot on the clit would be roughly a square millimeter in area. I also learned that a fingertip has about 2,500 nerves per square centimeter. So a square millimeter of the stroker’s fingertip would have 1/100 of this, or 25 nerves. If we consider that the finger-clit interface acts as a step-down transformer with the nerves in clitoris as the primary coil and the nerves in the stroker’s stroking finger as the secondary coil, then the ratio between the number of nerves on a spot on the clitoris and the number of nerves on the tip of the stroker’s finger touching it would be 800/25, or 32. In other words, the nerves on a spot on the clitoris are concentrated 32 times as much as the nerves in the stroker’s finger that touch it (more or less given the variability in the size of clits.) So what?!
What this tells us is that the electric charge moving in the part of the stroker’s finger touching the clitoris may be as much as 32 times higher than the electric charge moving in the nerves in the spot on the clitoris. In other words, the amount of electric charge the affected nerves in the stroker’s finger are carrying may be as much as 32 times higher than normal. It also tells us that the voltage potential may be as much as 32 times less in the nerves in the stroker’s finger touching the spot on the clitoris than it is in the nerves in the spot on the clitoris, or may be as much as 32 times lower than normal. What has this got to do with OM?! Everything! This concentration of electric charge is the cause of the intense electric, buzzing, tingling, charged, aching sensation strokers often feel in their stroking fingers, sensation powerful enough to be deeply and keenly felt. Their stroking fingers are literally full of electric charge! And, the lessening of the voltage potential results in a much slower movement of the electric charge in the affected nerves in the stroker’s stroking finger. The sensation lingers, allowing the stroker once again to feel deeply into it.
This phenomena, the intense electric charge that lingers in the stroker’s stroking finger, arises from the action of the step-down transformer of the clit-finger interface, and allows the stroker to much more carefully monitor if he or she is on the spot with the resonant stroke. Doing this allows the stroker to more readily maximize the sensation he or she feels, and consequently; the sensation that the strokee feels. All of this is possible because of the ratio of the nerves in the spot on the clitoris and the nerves in the part of the stroker’s stroking finger that touch it, and the incredible step-down transformer that is created between finger and clit. OMing is very highly charged!
