Turns Out That Music Can Give Us Skin Orgasms

Posted at July 8th, 2016 | by Singh Shivani | in

Anyone who has been a music lover is bound to have experienced those magical sensations that music creates within us. Goosebumps are the most common symptoms of frisson, which is basically a kind of skin orgasm generally experienced while listening to music. Frisson is a French term which translates to ‘a thrill or sensation of excitement or fear’. One might also feel tingling sensations and chills down the spine while addicted to a beautiful song that’s powerful enough to cause this. In a couple of occurrences, sexual arousal is also attained. Flushing and profusely perspiring while overwhelmed by a song’s composition is also a familiar instance.

A study conducted by Mitchell Colver, a PhD student at Utah State University for The Conversation led to several breakthroughs on frisson causing media. He scientifically proved through extensive research that it was a deeply emotional reaction that listeners were going through and therefore having frissons.
