Womens' brains shut down during orgasm

From the good folks at Scientific American,no less.Still trying to digest the rest of the article.Apparently they got subjects to engage in sexual activity INSIDE PET scanners(basically fancy ultrasound machines).The things we do for science,eh?

    According to the article, and I quote,

    "But when a woman reached orgasm, something unexpected happened: much of her brain went silent. Some of the most muted neurons sat in the left lateral orbitofrontal cortex, which may govern self-control over basic desires such as sex."

    I love science:)
