The Weekly Hump: A Woman's Walk Reveals Her Ability to Orgasm

October 6, 2010

Every hump day we’ll bring you a new fornication fact. This week find out what a woman’s walk reveals about her orgasm capability.

Ever watched a woman walk on by and wondered what she’d be like in bed?  Now you can thanks to a new study that shows a woman’s walks can reveal her propensity to vaginally orgasm. A study published in September 2008 by Stuart Brody of the University of the West of Scotland, in collaboration with colleagues in Belgium, found that a woman’s gait may be associated with her orgasmic ability.

The study involved 16 female Belgian university students, each who completed a detailed questionnaire about their sexual history. The women were then videotaped walking. Four researchers, who were not aware of the women’s sexual history, then studied each of the female’s walk. Using a functional-sexological approach they were able to correctly determine over 80 percent of the time whether the woman could vaginally orgasm or not.

The scientists determined that the sum of stride length and vertebral rotation was greater for the vaginally orgasmic women. Brody notes, “This could reflect the free, unblocked energetic flow from the legs through the pelvis to the spine.”

There are several possible reasons for these findings. According to Brody, "blocked pelvic muscles, which might be associated with psycho-sexual impairments, could both impair vaginal orgasmic response and gait.” In addition, women who are more confident about their sexuality might have this confidence reflected in their walk. Brody remarks, “Such confidence might also be related to the relationship(s) that a woman has had, given the finding that specifically penile-vaginal orgasm is associated with indices of better relationship quality.”

So, as the Beatles sing, there really is “something in the way she moves.”
