Is Your Orgasm Face Normal? Watch This Video

We all have worries about the things that we do during sex. Sometimes it is concern over our technique and whether it is working for our partner. Other times it is more to do with our appearance. You might worry that your cock isn’t impressive enough, or you may even start to think that your orgasm face is too weird.

Believe it or not, these are the kind of things most people think about in bed. They start to worry about pretty much everything in bed, and many believe that their orgasm face will actually turn their partner off and make them not want to fuck them again.

It might sound ridiculous to some of you, but we are all a little bit curious about how our orgasm face compares to others. Are we twisting our face into a weird shape? Are we opening our mouth too wide? Is our orgasm face normal? Thankfully, there are some out there keen to answer this important question, and they have done it by getting a video of people as they orgasm so you can see whether your orgasm face is normal.

Your orgasm face

Your orgasm face is, quite simply, the face you make when you cum. All of the pleasure that you are feeling throughout your body is shown clearly across your face, and with just a glance, your partner will see that you have got to the point of cumming… if the rest of your body language and moaning hasn’t already told them that!

The problem is that, when you get to orgasm, you have pretty much no control over your face. It is an automatic reaction, and that is something that terrifies a lot of people.

You might like to think that you simply look at though you are being pleasured, but sometimes it can be a lot different. If you have ever looked at the person you are fucking as they cum, you’ll know that orgasm faces look very different from each other.

Is it normal?

So we start to worry that our orgasm face isn’t normal. We worry that the way our face twists as we cum is not normal, and that our partner will see it and either laugh or be totally turned off by it. We can’t control the faces that we pull during orgasm, but we want to know if the face we make is normal.

Thankfully, there have been some studies into it. Back in 2011, some Spanish scientists wanted to look at the similarities between our orgasm faces. They had around 100 men and women share their videos of their orgasm faces with them and they began to analyse them. When they did, they found the following similarities:

It seems that when we cum, the majority of us do it with our eyes shut, as 92% of those studied closed their eyes as they came. 67% would drop their jaws, and a further 48% would frown or lower their brows a little. As for the lips, 44% would part their lips, usually to let out a little moan. Which of these do you do?

To further illustrate the similarities between orgasm faces, YouTube user wickydkewl uploaded a video earlier this month, containing slow-motion clips of people as they react orgasm. However, instead of focusing on their bodies, they focused on their faces.

Given the results of the 2011 Spanish study, we can actually see a number of similarities. Almost everyone in the video closes their eyes as they cum, and plenty open their mouths so that they can moan.

What is most fascinating is that people seem to find videos like this attractive. Yes, there are some who feel incredibly awkward watching it, but a high number seem to be turned on by the faces that people make as they cum. Which are you? Take a look at the video below and tell us what you think.

The turn on of the orgasm face

So what is it about the o face that turns people on so much? Well, one website thinks that they have the answer. The website Beautiful Agony believes that “eroticism in human imagery rests not in naked flesh and sexual illustration, but engagement with the face”.

Basically, they feel that we connect more deeply with faces showing pleasure and not necessarily the sexual content we see in porn. In fact, they believe that mainstream porn isn’t cutting it because it does not turn us on in the same way.

On the website you will see hundreds of videos, all showing people having orgasms. You don’t see any nudity, and the focus is totally on their faces, but the website is incredibly popular… as you can see by the number of videos on there. Whether you want to watch women reach orgasm, men, or transgender, you have a huge range of videos to watch.

Should you worry about it?

Should you really be worrying about your o face? We don’t think so. For a start, you have very little control over it. There isn’t much you can do to stop your face twisting and contorting in the way that it does when you feel pleasure, and worrying about it isn’t going to change anything.

You’ll have seen the video above, showing some of the faces people pull when the cum. Hopefully this will be enough to set your mind at ease. If not, there are plenty of other videos on the beautiful agony website… and even putting in “orgasm face” on Google will bring up over 30 million results.

Do you find orgasm faces to be a turn on, or do you prefer to watch porn with nudity in it? Does your o face match the results of the Spanish study, or is your face a little different when you cum? Let us know by leaving a comment in the box below.
