A woman has explained how she manages to climax from just thinking, after posting this on TikTok:
Maya Ansar shared the video with her followers, joking that it's OK when her partner isn't in the mood, because she can just 'think herself off'.
She explained to Vice that she discovered she could do it about three years ago, saying she started to have orgasms in her dreams, before realising she could do it while she was awake as well.
She now says she can do it on demand.
She told the publication: "I don't have to fantasize or anything, I just have to think 'come' and it happens.
"It's literally about being so in tune with your mind and body and realizing that an orgasm is more mental than anything else."
In 1992, researchers found that women who get off on images can also have physiological responses - things like increases in systolic blood pressure, heart rate, and pupil diameter - that are similar to actual stimulation.
They concluded: "On this basis we state that physical genital stimulation is evidently not necessary to produce a state that is reported to be an orgasm."
Ansar agrees, saying: "The orgasm I have from thinking off is exactly the same as a penetrative orgasm, deep within my core and it sends waves through my entire body."
She says it's enhanced her sex life, adding: "It's an amazing talent and I consider myself blessed and want thinking off to be normalized."
An Instagram star recently made a similar claim.
Marcela Iglesias, 44, claims she canher mind - and even prefers it to having sex. But perfecting her technique has come at a price: she had to give up alcohol and meat.
I mean... that's a lot to give up.
