The little-known ‘lucky button’ in your ear revealed: The doctor’s urgent warning as thousands try ‘eargasms’

  • Dr. Karan reveals how to get ear gas
  • Not everyone can have one

A doctor has revealed exactly why some people enjoy having their ears cleaned – by comparing the sensation to that of an orgasm.

GGD general practitioner Dr Karan explained putting things in your ears can stimulate the vagus nerve, creating an ‘ear muscle’ that can lead to an ‘ear gasm’.

The doctor, who reveals strange medical facts online, explained that stimulating the vagus nerve in the ear causes the surrounding tissue to ‘swell’, just like in the genital area.

But not everyone experiences the pleasure.

“The happy button in your earhole is a malfunction,” he explained.

Dr. Karan explained that putting things in your ears can stimulate the vagus nerve, creating an ‘ear muscle’ that can lead to an ‘ear gasm’ – but that doesn’t mean you should

Other people react annoyingly when the button is pressed.

“Some people who put things in their ears automatically trigger a cough.”

He brought up the topic of eargasms after a video of a woman stimulating the sensitive spot went viral.

In the video, the woman appeared to experience the ear gas after poking the hidden spot with a cotton swab.

“If we’re not supposed to put things in our ears, why did evolution put a happy button in them?” she asked.

Dr. Karan explained that the vagus nerve is responsible for transmitting touch and sensation information to the brain.

“For those with a coughing disorder, when you put something in your earpipes, your brain thinks it’s something in your throat and triggers a cough to get rid of the threat,” he said.

“A lucky few get eargasms. Stimulation of the vagus nerve leads to a parasynthetic response and a calming effect similar to the other type of ‘gassing seen’.

He said that is why the ears are considered erogenous zones.

The good news is that you don’t have to put things in your ears to activate the pleasure zone.

“This can be mimicked not only with touch, but also with certain types of music, humming, and even a gentle woosa of the ears,” he said.

“If you want to get freaky with your ears, please do, just leave the Q-tips out,” he said.

People responded quickly to the doctor’s explanation.

“It’s different because I know I have sores in my ear and at the same time I’m moaning,” said one woman.

“I did this in public. So technically I’ve had an orgasm in public without knowing it,” she added.

Others joked, with one woman saying, “I gag and nearly vomit if I go too deep.”

What is the Vagus Nerve?

The vagus nerve, also known as the vagus nerve, are the major nerves of your parasympathetic nervous system.

This system regulates specific body functions such as your digestion, heartbeat and immune system.

These functions are involuntary, meaning you cannot consciously control them.

The vagus nerve sends signals back to the brain, where our brain interprets the data and creates emotion or changes one’s mental arousal state.

For example, if breathing, heart rate, and muscle tone are high, the brain will interpret this as a state that requires an increased level of psychological arousal.

“Cotton swabs are cheaper than a vibrator and disposable,” one woman laughed.

Some were shocked that “not everyone” Q-tipping “feels great.”

Some people seemed to suffer from both “glitches.”

‘Staff. One ear feels great, the other makes me cough. I think I’m broken,” said one woman.

“I thought I was the only person in the world with those two,” another agreed.

Three women said the left ear makes them cough while the right ear feels great.
