What Is Orgasm Synesthesia And Might You Have It?

December 23, 2015 2 min read

Orgasms are wonderful, blissful experiences. They provide a release of tension and flood the body with hormones that make us feel happy, loved, affectionate and calm. But for some people, they can also produce an experience in which they see colours, shapes and patterns all around and through their body. This is known as synesthesia. You may have heard of it in reference to people who see colour bursts when listening to music or find words change colour and leap off the page while reading. This is a neurological condition in which the senses are cross-wired meaning the person experiencing it might taste sound or hear colour, for example. landscape-1450803360-colours-orgasm [bctt tweet="What Is Orgasm Synesthesia And Might You Have It?"] For Rhiannon Walsh, this experience  isn't limited to reading or listening to music -- it also includes her orgasms. Whether or not this happens during  orgasm depends on a few factors. She rarely (it has only happened once) experiences a burst of colour and pattern when she is masturbating and seldom does she experience it with a one night stand. She says, "the closer I feel to someone, the more likely I'm going to enjoy fireworks of symmetry and sparkling hues to make my orgasm even more explosive." There are downsides, though. On more than one occasion, Walsh says she has nearly passed out, she often gets headaches and after, finds herself with an incredible, and a hard to explain, thirst for orange juice. There is very little research available on the subject but for a 2013 German study that found people with synaesthesia are more likely to go into a trance during sex and have a high sex drive. Walsh has not had a brain scan and everything is fine with her vision. She says that until more research is done, she'll just enjoy the experience and says, "I only hope more people could experience the euphoria of a colour-drenched climax, at least once.​" Do experience synesthesia?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
