Music is said to have a very powerful effect on the body and soul. But is it enough to give someone a “loud and full body orgasm” seemingly without any other type of stimulation?
That’s a question some people are asking themselves as a woman seemed to work herself to the ultimate in pleasure during a recent performance of Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony by the LA Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
Molly Grant, who was sitting near the woman, reported the incident.
“Everyone kind of turned to see what was happening. I saw the girl after it had happened and assumed that she… had an orgasm because she was heavily breathing, and her partner was smiling and looking at her- like in an effort not to shame her. It was quite beautiful,” she said.
An audio clip of the woman’s moans sounding as the orchestra played has gone viral.
Some people argued that the sound clip was not authentic. Others that were in attendance thought that the woman may have been dealing with a medical matter and did not have an orgasm.
Magnus Fiennes, brother of actor Ralph Fiennes, was at the concert and says the orgasm “absolutely happened”.
“A woman in the audience had (a) loud and full body orgasm during the 5th’s second movement. Band politely carried on,” he tweeted.
The L.A. Times stated that the audio clip matched claims of the woman climaxing as the band carried on.
Music agent Lukas Barton told the press that the woman’s loud moan was “wonderfully timed” to a “romantic swell”.
“One can’t know exactly what happened, but it seemed very clear from the sound that it was an expression of pure physical joy,” Burton said.
The woman has not been identified. The LA Philharmonic did not comment on the incident.
