For most men, getting their partners pregnant comes with as much pressure as giving them an orgasmso it makes sense why guys might wonder if they have to do both at the same time.
Still, the notion that female orgasms facilitate conception lives on as one of the more pervasive fertility myths and it sucks — just not in the way scientists ly thought. The theory was plagued with errors from its conception, down to the gross term itself, which is actually based on a typo. This suction effect was originally described by a husband and wife team of researchers in the UK in the s as insuck theory, not upsuck, psychologist Robert King, who has studied the insuck phenomenon, explains.
And like a lot of things from the s, it did not age well. While early data on the theory indicated that pressure changes in the uterus post-orgasm could potentially create a suction effect, many researchers such as Elizabeth Lloyd, philosopher of biology and author of The Case of the Female Orgasmhave argued that this does not make much anatomical sense. Even if an orgasm created a sucking effect, because of how the cervix moves during orgasm it would not be close enough to the semen for that to be at all useful.
As a result, the evidence that female orgasms aid conception is mostly based off of two experiments on the one woman. Subsequent follow-up studies on much larger samples have failed to produce the sameincluding a study of over 16, women which found no correlation between female orgasms and fertility.
So why has upsuck theory lingered so long?
Marriage and family therapist Katie Ziskind notes that orgasms can help with fertility, not by acting as some strange sperm vacuum but by reducing stress hormones and releasing oxytocin, making it theoretically easier to conceive.
It is known that high levels of stress can cause infertility. And as much as Ziskind raises a good point that stress is bad for fertility, putting that much pressure on your partner and yourself every time you have sex will just create more of it. So just relax and enjoy the process of having sex.
