Not really (I couldn't resist the meme), but this article about the bleeding edge of sexual experimentation, wherein orgasm takes over, is an enlightening share.

She has a way with words.

Each exercise peeled away another layer of protection, so we were all wide-open and quivering, naked as oysters, as vulnerable as people can be in the presence of strangers.

For several years after that night, though, I dropped into trance state, and from there into the energy overload that tantrikas call “kundalini orgasm,” without volition, any time I let my attention stray out of intellectual functions and into the feelings in my body — for example, when I put my attention into my fingertips or my thighs or my belly. I still drop into this state quite easily — I can feel it wanting to come up now, just from writing about it — but it’s been a few years since it happened without my permission. This feels like progress: enough, at least, that I feel reasonably safe writing this.

(If you think that being able to have orgasms any time you want and sometimes when you don’t sounds like fun, I draw your attention to the case studies of Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome — a condition that has been known to lead to suicide. Kundalini orgasms are less debilitating only because you don’t have to drop everything in order to masturbate; they don’t require the use of the hands. But otherwise, they are just as embarrassing and distracting and dysfunctional. Orgasms are only fun when you have to go hunting for them; when they hunt you, they are as terrifying as any other seizure.)

There is also, of course, the possibility of taking out-of-controlness as my way of life. I have met people who have done so, who live in tantra retreats, who have built lives in a place where it is entirely appropriate and understood to drop to one’s knees shrieking as the bliss takes over. Those people were, I have to tell you, awful — with thousand-yard stares, dirty robes and the reek of bodies long unoccupied. That’s not the life I want.

Yeah, yet another good reason to fuck with other people, instead of with your brain.  Meh.
