What is sex sounds?
Sex sounds are the sounds we make while having sex. The sounds can come in the form of moaning, groaning and grunting, among others. Sex sounds are the body’s physiological response to exertion. We make these sounds because we need more oxygen, signalling the body to deliver it via our “laryngeal muscles”.
“[This creates] a system under pressure that lengthens the expiration phase of the breath and enhances the oxygenation of the blood,” researcher Lorraine McCune explained to TIME.
“Expiration against the constricted glottis produces pulses of sound.”
James Higham, an anthropology professor at New York University, explains that humans shorten the words they use most frequently. As a result, partners resort to using sex sounds instead of using words to express themselves.
“I don’t have to say, “Oh yeah, that’s the spot, right there, no wait, just slightly up,” the Daily Mail quoted Higham as saying. “I can just be quiet until they hit the spot and go “Mmmm” and there you go – they know.”
Neuroscientist Barry Komisaruk, author of The Science of the Orgasm, explained that sex sounds started as small respiratory releases but have become a form of communication as well.
“The sound is a representation of the intensity of excitation,” he said.
“If a partner gets excited hearing a shout during sex, then that can be a rewarding communication that bonds the partner and encourages them to do it again.”
