Electrifying images have been brought to life – capturing the essence of female orgasms and delving into the world of male climaxes too.
In a new UK survey asking people to describe an orgasm, ‘volcanic eruption’, ‘firework’, and ‘shooting star’ were the most popular responses, although answers were evenly split between numerous descriptions, showing just how varied opinion is.
While the orgasm has yet to be captured in its glorious entirety, the efforts made consist of tired, gender-normative clichés that we are all unfortunately familiar with; such as flowers for women and storms for men.
Thankfully, that’s old news now. Neumann breaks it down: “Orgasms are as unique as fingerprints – a lively mix of colours, energies, and emotions.”
Creating the orgasm art was an exciting blend of science and sensation, according to the brands.
Ten anonymous volunteers – five men, five women – took centre-stage as they wore heart-monitoring ECG band sensors during their most intimate moments to capture every heartbeat, every rush, and every moment of release as they engaged with either a Womanizer Pleasure Air Toy, or Arcwave male masturbator.
With this invaluable data to hand, Lovehoney and Womanizer collaborated with software engineer Vika (Vika Shcherbak) and developer Nusha (Noam Rubin).
Leveraging the immense power of AI, they transformed the raw, physiological data into a series of awe-inspiring visualisations, turning reality into imagination.
Neumann added: “Every orgasm is unique, which is why it’s amazing that we’ve been able to use real data from real orgasms, and ask AI to turn it into an image that we can see.

"It's interesting however that you can still see a gender bias in AI's depiction of the female orgasm with more traditionally ‘feminine-coded’ colours.
"This reflects how deeply AI is shaped and influenced by societal norms and stereotypes, and that AI does not stand aside of these, but might reproduce them."
