This week on Not Safe with Nikki Glasser, Nikki explores the unknown of the female orgasm. She asks five women what they think is actually happening when a woman has an orgasm, and she gets varied responses:

"Your organs are just shaking."

"Things get bigger and bigger. … There's words for all those things, but I forget what they are."

"Like in seventh grade when you did that science experiment with the two bottles. … Volvano vagina."

She met with Dr. Nicole Prause — who Nikki calls "the Neil deGrasse Tyson of pussy" —  to better understand the science of orgasms.

And when she asked Dr. Prause what an orgasm is?

"I have no idea."

Great.

Check out the video below to know how Dr. Prause can tell in her studies if a woman is having an orgasm, if Viagra for women is in the near future, and if there are some women who just can't have orgasms.
