Amongst mammals, this org@.$m linked action plays a vital role in ovulation, to help with release of eggs from the ovaries
Isn’t it just to feel good? No, but there is more is more it…at least back in time.
The female org@.$m may have its true roots in evolution, a new research has uncovered that it aids conception, Researchers at Yale University in their study noted that the male org@.$m’s role is getting the sperm to meet the egg, it has been established for a while, the role of the female org@.$m has been unclear, reports Health News Daily.
It has no defined role in the reproduction or in the number or children, just as we all know. Scientist are more curious than the rest of us, they’ve been trying to find out why women have org@.$ms. The research team at Yale University is led by professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, Gunter Wagner.
He worked alongside co-researcher Mihaela Pavlicev of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, they studied other mammals for hints on how the female org@.$m advanced, they also examined non-human mammals and concentrated on a particular reflex that comes with org@.$m in women which is the release of oxytocin and prolactin hormones.
Among several mammals, this org@.$m linked action plays a vital role in ovulation, most importantly to help stimulate the release of eggs from the ovaries. Mammals may vary widely today but this trait may have been necessary to ovulation in species that were ancestral to human.
“This [org@.$m-linked] reflex became superfluous for reproduction later in evolution, freeing [human] female org@.$m for secondary roles,” according to a Yale news release.
The study authors also noted that the clitoris appears to have shifted in anatomical position throughout evolution — so that it now is less likely to be directly stimulated during intercourse.
