There is limited knowledge about the physiological mechanisms and neurobiol-ogy underlying the sensation of orgasm. Orgasm is a complex response involving the whole body. During orgasm, there are changes in the genitalia, in skeletal muscle tone (characteristic spastic contractions of the feet), contractions of facial musculature, vocal reactions (moaning or sighing), semivoluntary movements, general cardiovascular (elevated systolic and diastolic blood pressure) and respiratory changes, somatic sensory experiences, and an altered consciousness.

The intense feelings of pleasure and desire accompanying orgasm are mediated by the brain.
