A friend of mine pointed it out to me, when I was eating.
He said: “You must really like that - your toes are curling!”
Yes, I was really enjoying the taste (rich chocolate icecream! Mmm!) - but why heckity would that make my toes curl? I’ve noticed it on other pleasurable occasions since. (I don’t think it’s a conscious action.)
So what is this? Some primordial reflex? A lingering “baby” behaviourism? Is it just me?
I had an incredibly tacky Environmental Sciences prof - who spent his off hours scamming on co-eds - proclaim that one’s toes curl during orgasm due to the genetic primate memory of needing to hold on to something when having sex in a tree.
No, I am not kidding. No, I don’t know if it is true. And no, I don’t know if sharing that “fact” got him in with the co-eds…
Is this reflex related at all to the “kneading” reflex of cats? (i.e., adult cats often flex their paws when being petted, etc., in theory b/c the same kneading paw movements of kittens against the mother cat’s belly increases lactation).
