Coming in Colors

Some women (and even some men) experience a rainbow of sensations during orgasm. Join us as we explore the mysterious world of sexual synesthesia.

In the course of a romantic relationship, it’s common for one or both of the partners to start seeing red on occasion. Couples don’t always see eye-to-eye, regardless of whether it’s in the bedroom or the paint aisle of their local hardware store. One minute they’re discussing which shades would look best in the living room, and the next there’s yelling, clothes are being tossed out of the window and there’s a U-Haul in the driveway waiting to take one of them to a better place and a police car to cart the other one off to jail. That’s just how relationships work, sometimes. 

But those heated moments are not the only time that lovers see colors. A sliver of sexual society claims that they actually get struck by various hues and tones whenever they experience an intense orgasm. It’s a wild phenomenon called sexual synesthesia. What in tarnation is that, exactly?

Dr. Jordan Soper, licensed psychologist and sex therapist, tells HUSTLERMagazine.com that synesthesia is rare, yet it’s not uncommon for a person to experience sensory-related alterations at times of intense physical stimulation. That could include a car accident, childbirth or a real whopper of a sexual experience. (We pick the third—after all, you don’t need health insurance to come.) 

“Sexual synesthesia, or even altered sensory response, could happen before and during an orgasm due to the high psychological load (pardon the pun) that occurs on your body during this time,” Dr. Soper explains. “High levels of mindfulness and present-focused attention are likely a contributing factor, as increased perception and awareness of bodily sensation could result in a change in perception.”
