J-Lo's character in The Back-Up Plan orgasms 30 seconds into making out, allegedly due to side-effects of pregnancy. Hollywood fantasy or real thing?
Normally I would rather get paper cuts on my eyes than watch this thing, but when we heard that The Back-Up Plan contains such a scene, I took one for the team. (Not as bad as you'd think!)
So the mystery begins when Lopez's character is told by a friend who's already been pregnant that it makes you horny because three times the amount of blood is coursing through your veins. "I was so sensitive, I could have an orgasm sitting on a bus," she says enthusiastically.
And sure enough, when J-Lo's character actually starts making out with Alex McLoughlin's, they've barely made clothed contact when she starts to have an orgasm (seen here), to their mutual surprise. Later, after they actually have sex, he says to her, "What was that, three or four times for you?"
Given that women who have actually been pregnant were highly skeptical of this claim last week, we decided to look into it.
It's been suggested elsewhere that the increase in blood volume leads to a hypersensitive clitoris, which makes a little bit more sense than "pregnancy hormones make you come all the time." We asked our indispensable friend Doc Gurley to shed some light. Turns out this is sort of possible! But only sort of.
