The period shortly after death seems to be a strange thing. During this time, the body has undergone various changes, from being alive to being completely dead. Although some of these changes (such as hardening and discoloration) can be seen in crime TV shows, other changes seem far-fetched for the human body.
Nonetheless, what the corpse can do is shocking and creepy. From the birth of the awareness of death, the changes in the body after death are almost unrealistic and impossible to achieve. The following list is not suitable for the faint-hearted or those with stomach problems.
Even though this sounds a lot like necrophilia, it thankfully isn’t. In corpses that no longer have oxygen pumping through them, this is unlikely ever to happen, but for those that are clinically dead but being used as beating-heart cadavers or as organ donors, the possibility of the body having an orgasm is there.
This isn’t done on purpose. Doctors who work with these bodies sometimes have to trigger parts of the spine electrically. In some cases, when the sacral nerve root in the base of one’s spine is stimulated, it causes a reflexive reaction by the autonomic nervous system. Again, this only works because the bodies are still receiving oxygen, despite being clinically dead. When the doctors trigger this part of the spine, the reflex it causes in the system can result in an orgasm.
However, because the body is clinically dead, no actual enjoyment or pleasure comes from this experience. The brain is no longer sending out signals, and while the body may react, it’s only doing so out of pure reflex.
