One of the first things a man notices upon vaginal entry of his penis into the vagina is the sensation of heat. A burning heat that the penis feels as if it were just put into a fiery oven. What does this have to do with the dynamics of the sexual act?
Most people are taught that there are only Five Senses – Touch, Taste, Smell, Sight, and Hearing. This is a bit sophomoric in its teachings, as there are many more senses than just these basic five. The list is quite long and more senses are being discovered as we begin to further understand how the body really operates. For example, here are a few senses most people never realize even existed: Temperature, Two-Point Discrimination, Stretch, Pain, etc.
It is said by ancient Hindu belief that – “The vulva is an altar and the pubic hairs are the flames upon the altar.” The vulva is defined as a woman’s genitals. The “flames” are an outward representation of what lies inside the vulva – Fire.
Now back to the different senses the human body is capable of interpreting: One of those is Temperature – be it Hot or Cold. As the penis hangs outside of the body, its temperature is less than average body temperature. As the vagina lies inside of the body, its temperature is hotter than the penis.
When the penis enters the vagina, it is suddenly in an environment that is much hotter than the environment the penis is used to. This triggers temperature-pleasure receptors in the penis. Meaning that the penis can sense, neurologically, the change in temperature upon entering the vagina. These nervous-temperature receptors are also pleasure receptors and men will feel immediate pleasure upon having their penis enter the vagina.
Why is the sensation of heat so apparent and wonderful during the sexual act? Heat is a naturally-based sedative that gives a person a feeling of having a tranquilizer effect. In other words it relieves anxiety, stress, and helps calm a person. While we all want to be active and dynamic during the sexual process, this added measure of vaginal heat instantly makes us feel safe, relaxed, and worry-free; even though we are experiencing the highly-exciting state of having sex.
Why does this “heat” sensation feel so good? That’s a good question. It may have relevance by taking the male back to the time when he was in his mother’s womb – When he was safe, warm, and protected. Possibly the sexual act of intercourse (for the male) allows him to re-visit his embryonic state. A period in his life when he was warm, had no debts or bills, no worries about food or shelter or trying to earn a living; and was looked after and taken care of by someone (indirectly) who loved him. Imagine the penis, upon entering the warmth of the vagina – it’s the same as the infant who is warmthed by the womb. But life must continue… So, as the infant continues to grow and mature, the infant will inevitable outgrow the womb; be born, and be introduced and forced into an environment that he is hardly ready for; as it is much different than the warmth and comfort of his previous home (the warm, comfortable, safe, and loving womb of his mother).
Man is borne of his mother’s womb. Upon exit of this womb, he spends a great deal of his life trying to re-enter a similar womb through his penis. Is it possible that he gets the same “motherly” love through his penis in later years via the sexual act? It’s a question worth pondering, as Mother Nature is mysterious in her ways.
