Why People Shake After an Orgasm Dr. Jim: Well, Dr. Travis I've got some really good questions. But here's a really good one. This is from Facebook, from Kristi S. And a little embarrassing but, “My body shakes right after I have an orgasm. Does that happen to anyone else out there?” Dr. Lisa: Well, that’s a great question. Dr. Travis: Never. Dr. Lisa: And that’s not an embarrassing question. She shouldn’t be embarrassed. She should be like, “Ye-ha I have an orgasm.” Dr. Drew: That’s a good thing. Dr. Lisa: Yeah, absolutely. That’s a great thing. Well, basically, that’s a normal thing and it happens to most women who have an orgasm. Basically, what happens is the pelvic floor it contracts with an orgasm and in rhythmic cycles afterwards. So that’s completely normal. What happens is there's a build up of tension. And you know what I think the best way to do this would be to do with some toys, not the toys that you think. We’ll use those Kegel muscles. They basically tense up. There’s a lot of tension that happens beforehand with arousal and then there's a relief. See these are the types of toys I was talking about. Dr. Travis: Do I get a toy too? Dr. Lisa: You can have a toy too little boy. So the orgasm is great. What happens is tension, tension, tension, so it builds up. It builds up. Dr. Drew: Mine is just steady. Dr. Lisa: You want her to build up to -- that guy is not going anywhere. Dr. Travis: Give him time. Dr. Lisa: All right. Here you go. Now, tension, tension, tension until you can't take it anymore and see my guy went somewhere. Dr. Drew: Yeah, but – Dr. Travis: You just killed the car. Dr. Lisa: The release of tension, it’s a good relief. It’s absolutely normal it happens. Dr. Travis: And it’s healthy, right? Dr. Lisa: Yeah. Dr. Drew: When it clears, they can see clearly and think clearly and it’s all good.
