Okay we all know the sounds your lover makes can totally turn your crank. Right? Those succulent slurps that accompany oral sex. The way she lets out that little moan when you hit the right spot with your tongue or finger. Or the way he grunts with that last thrust, his cock throbbing, as both of you reach the point of no return and cascade over the edge into total abandon. But what if there was *a sound* that could cause sexual arousal and climax?
Well, according to urban legend there is such a sound and it’s created by an instrument called the Blaster Beam. According to Wikipedia, “The Beam was designed by John Lazelle in the early 1970s, and was first widely used by Francisco Lupica who built several out of iron. American child actor turned musician, Craig Huxley, created his own refined version of the Beam out of aluminum which was brought to fame in the soundtrack for Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) in which composer Jerry Goldsmith used the instrument to create the signature V’ger sound.”1
Craig Huxley played his version of the Blaster Beam during a concert in Central Park in the early ’90s and a blast it was for a few lucky ladies in the audience during the performance—in more ways than one. According to a writer for the now defunct website totse.com, “Craig Huxley gave a concert featuring…the Blaster Beam. The Beam can be heard on…several New Age albums. It’s an amazing instrument, especially when amplified to high levels. The rumor circulating around after the concert was that when Huxley played the Beam, there were women in the audience falling out of their chairs with *big* smiles on their faces. Over a dozen reported having intensely sexual feelings from the Beam sound, up to and including orgasm.”
The writer goes on to describe an experience with a female friend. “I personally took the whole idea with about four point two billion grains of salt, and never gave it much thought, until fairly recently. A young lady who was a dear friend of mine in high school, whom I hadn’t seen in several years, came over for a visit, and was amazed at my studio (I hadn’t gotten involved in music until after we’d stopped dating). She asked me to demonstrate what my stuff could do, and so I fired up a couple of synths and played her some snatches. But when, in flipping through my Xpander presets, I came to a sound called ‘THE BEAM’ in honor of Huxley’s instrument, the expression on her face abruptly changed. When I asked her what was wrong, she blinked for a moment and said, ‘Please play that again. Louder.’ I did so, and had the odd experience of watching her eyes glaze over as she half fell into a chair breathing hard. ‘I…*like* that sound,’ she managed to get out in a whisper. Nobody else I’ve played that patch for, including my fiancee (alas!), has had such a strong reaction to it, or indeed any reaction at all. But my curiosity is piqued. (wouldn’t YOURS be?!)”
Ummm. Talk about your pussy power!
In 1986 for her greatest hits album, Kate Bush wrote and recorded a song Experiment IV. The song tells a story about a secret military plan to create a sound that is horrific enough to kill people.2 Science fiction or a possible reality? A reality. Sound as a weapon is rapidly becoming truth rather than fiction.3 But how is it if a sound can kill someone it might make them cum as well?
The answer lies in physics and the concept of resonant frequency—sort of.
As we know sound is caused by vibration which in turn has a frequency. When the frequency (or frequencies) associated with the vibration of any particular sound matches that of the object (matter) it’s passing through, resonance occurs. This resonance creates a vibration within the object (matter). There’s a good explanation and illustration of this phenomenon in this YouTube video.
Okay, but here’s the tricky part. The human body doesn’t have resonant frequency, however, there is a phenomenon known as sympathetic resonance. Which means certain frequencies of vibration can cause tissues or organs in the body to vibrate. For example, the human eyeball has a resonant frequency (sympathetic resonance) of 18 cycles per second.4 So when the human body is exposed to a sound (vibration) of the same frequency blurred peripheral vision occurs.
So what does this have to do with the pussy? You ask.
Given the protuberant nature of the female genitalia, in theory, if it were subjected to the correct frequency of vibration it would be—shall we say—stimulated. And if the woman being subject to the vibration should have an extremely sensitive clitoris (or perhaps even have a clitoral hood piercing maybe?) she could be stimulated to orgasm—in theory.
Sounds like an experiment for the guys over at MythBusters.
New Age Music is to Blame
New age musician Kitarō has used the Blaster Beam in several of his compositions. According to one reader of totse.com his music affected a friend. As he said, “[I] have a close friend who responds very favorably to Kitarō. We borrowed a friend’s condo at Seven Springs last winter for a week. Among her CD collection were half a dozen by Kitarō. This was our first introduction to Kitarō, and the response was intense and mutual. I couldn’t really say if it was the sound or something hidden in the sound, but that isn’t really significant to me.”
That sneaky bastard, here I thought Kitarō was all about peace, spirituality and sacred journeys.
So have any of you (male or female) experienced a sound induced orgasm?
