The Truth about the Female “Headache”

So I was listening to Vicious Circle today at work and evidently there was some research done that I entirely missed. 

But when a woman reached orgasm, something unexpected happened: much of her brain went silent. Some of the most muted neurons sat in the left lateral orbitofrontal cortex, which may govern self-control over basic desires such as sex. Decreased activity there, the researchers suggest, might correspond to a release of tension and inhibition. The scientists also saw a dip in excitation in the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex, which has an apparent role in moral reasoning and social judgment—a change that may be tied to a suspension of judgment and reflection.

So on the way home from work today the wife an I start talking and evidently she was aware of this research.  Not only was she aware of it one of her instructors had known about the research and had extra information regarding the parts of the brain that shut down.  To just prove I’m not lying, here it is from a third party.

They found that 30 different parts of the brain light up with pleasure so strong that the nervous system begins to shut down—making it more difficult for a woman to feel pain, the Sun reports.

So while in the car the wife goes on to say:

“The pain centers in the brain shutdown.  As they shutdown current discomfort and pain is relieved, although temporary it is relieved.  Even headaches.”

At which point my ever logical engineering brain flew into action and the conversation continued like this:

Me: So in other words Dr. Joe’s cure all is a cure for the headache.

Her: Yes.

Me: So it’s confirmed women are lying about having a headache to avoid sex.  Cause if it was true, properly applied sex would relieve the headache.

Her: Well my headache was gone after last night so what’s that tell you.

Me: The Lt. was right when she said women were evil and liars.

So there’s a testimonial proving Dr. Joe’s cure all, plus the scientific evidence to back it up.  If your wife has a headache, do the right thing, make her scream for joy.

I’m so getting thrown on the couch for this post.  It’s just too damn funny not to share though.
