This is why having Botox cuts your chance of having an orgasm
You might look younger, but is it really worth it?
They may feel more attractive but women who have Botox have a serious disadvantage in the bedroom. It turns out those who smooth out their wrinkles with treatment are less likely to achieve orgasms.
The toxic injections paralyse the nerves, making it hard to produce some facial expressions.
According to psychologists at Cardiff University, that means they can’t always communicate to their partners that they are enjoying sex. This affects sexual performance and has a knock on effect on the woman’s feelings of pleasure.
She can’t get no satisfaction
Dr Michael Lewis, who led the research, likened the effect to people finding it difficult to feel blissfully happy without actually smiling.
Without full control of the facial muscles, women may struggle to actually achieve orgasm.
He said: “Facial expressions associated with orgasm utilise the same muscles targeted in typical botulinum toxin cosmetic treatments.
“The predicted consequence of having treatment is that women may feel an orgasm to a lesser extent and may find it harder to reach climax.
“Analysis from our study suggests that’s what is happening.”
