Rowers Lose Their Senses During Races

LONDON – Olympic athletes routinely go to extraordinary levels of sacrifice in pursuit of their competitive dreams, but few endure a greater level of suffering than those in the rowing events.

Olympic legend Matthew Pinsent, who retired after winning the last of his four gold medals for Great Britain at the Athens Games in 2004, revealed how it is not uncommon for rowers’ senses, such as their hearing and even their vision, to shut down during a race due to the physical side effects of the sport’s torturous test of spirit.

“Towards the end, everything starts to go a bit weird,” Pinsent said. “It all starts to go. Your senses are not in control anymore and they start to leave you. The hearing will go, the vision goes out of synch, there isn’t much left.

“Your body starts to close down anything it doesn’t need at that moment. It prioritizes to the parts of the body that are in trouble, like your muscles suffering the agony of the row.”

Exercise May Trigger Orgasm in Some Women

Survey results suggest phenomenon is not rare, but causes remain unclear

MONDAY, March 19 (HealthDay News) — Sex may not always be essential for orgasm: A new survey finds that some women can also experience the sensation while exercising.

This type of orgasm is sometimes referred to as a “coregasm” because of its association with exercises that involve core abdominal muscles, said study author Debby Herbenick, co-director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University’s School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation.

“The most common exercises associated with exercise-induced orgasm were abdominal exercises, climbing poles or ropes, biking/spinning and weight lifting,” Herbenick said in a university news release. “These data are interesting because they suggest that orgasm is not necessarily a sexual event, and they may also teach us more about the bodily processes underlying women’s experiences of orgasm.”

The findings are based on the results of online surveys completed by 124 women who reported experiencing exercise-induced orgasms and Read more Tuesday 120320
