Here’s what researchers found: Directly below your nose is that funny little soup strainer known as the philtrum. It’s like the toll-free bridge connecting your nose to your upper lip.
Directly beneath the bottom of your philtrum, in the center of your top lip, is a small puffy bit of lip that has a name (because science needs to be doing something while they are waiting to cure the common cold). That’s your tubercle. Say hello.
No really, go check it out in a mirror. Poke it a little. Apply a gloss and pout. Take some selfies. Why?
This study found that women with bigger tubercles were more likely to have a vaginal orgasm than women with less prominent tubercles.
A huge part of why we started painting our lips was to remind men of what our labias looked like when they’re all inflamed and sh*t.
The study was small, with less than 1000 subjects surveyed, but it’s only the beginning. Researchers have yet to understand the connection between face lips and orgasms, but we’re sure they’re on the case.
