It was a memorable one-woman show, but it didn’t make it to the stage.
A female attendee was reportedly heard having a “loud, full-body orgasm” midway through the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Friday performance of Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony.
The woman’s wailing was recorded by a separate viewer before being uploaded online, where it has amassed over 1 million listeners. The ecstatic audio also sparked debate as to whether a cacophonous climax could be caused by the music alone.
Some theorized that the loving attendant was assisted by a remote-controlled vibrator operated by someone else inside the venue. Others claimed that the crying could have been triggered by a medical emergency, rather than a satiating sexual experience.
However, a New York City psychotherapist says it is certainly possible that the woman was have an uninhibited orgasm in the audience.
Cyndi Darnell, who also works as a sex therapist and relationship counselor, told The Post on Monday that full-body orgasms can happen without any contact.
“It’s possible, but context is everything,” Darnell said. “Nothing good happens in sex if the context is out of place.”
The sexpert further explained: “Anything can create orgasmic sensations. This is because orgasms originate in the brain through the nervous system, not through intercourse. Technically, anything that activates the pleasure receptors in the brain in the right context can produce pleasure and sometimes orgasm.”
However, the sexologist stressed that full-body climaxes aren’t typically caused by interactions with large works of art, meaning you’re unlikely to hear people moaning near the Mona Lisa or approaching deep poetry. by E. E. Cummings.
“It’s definitely not common,” said Darnell, who is also the author of “Sex, When You Don’t Feel Like It: The Truth About Mismatched Libido & Rediscovering Desire.” “Usually it happens gradually over time. It’s about context, not tricks, tips and positions.”
Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony usually lasts about 45 minutes, more than enough time to bring a woman to a climax if the context is right.
Music producer Magnus Fiennes was in the audience at the Los Angeles Philharmonic concert and tweeted that the climax seemed to be “full body”.
In fact, full-body orgasms are legit and “refer to especially intense orgasms that feel like they’re in every part of your body,” causing your abs to contract and your fingers to go numb, according to Healthline.
Those climaxes are often brought on by tantric exercises like deep breathing and energy “channeling.”
While it’s unclear if the unidentified woman was taking advantage of that practice while listening to the orchestra, other attendees were impressed by her groans and grunts, giving her a metaphorical standing O.
Music agent Lukas Burton told the Los Angeles Times that the climax “beautifully timed” with a “romantic swell” during the performance. He described the sound as “rather wonderful and refreshing”.
Meanwhile, Molly Grant, who was also in the audience, told the outlet that the moment was “pretty beautiful.”
