Wissenschaftler bestätigen: Die Orgasmus-Hackfressen, die der Mensch beim Ejakulieren und Squirting so zieht, entsprechen nicht den Hackfressen des Schmerzes. Das Paper kann Cronenberg sicher gut für cineastisches Finetuning gebrauchen.
t has become common for people to equate the faces of people experiencing orgasm with those experiencing serious pain—likely due to Hollywood interpretations of both. In this new effort, the researchers contradict such suggestions with evidence to the contrary.
To learn more about the faces people make while experiencing orgasm or intense pain, the researchers created a computer program to mimic a wide variety of gender-neutral facial expressions. They started with mathematical models that have been developed for animating faces—it included a core set of 42 movements representing different parts of a face. They then asked 80 adults (half male, half female) to determine if the expressions showed "orgasm," "pain" or something else. They used the results to build better models and then asked another 104 people to assess the simulated facial expressions.
The researchers found a clear distinction between perceptions of pain and pleasure—most of the volunteers agreed on which was which.
