Watch a Couple Have Sex - in an MRI Machine!

Thanks Science!

Thanks Science. A few years back a sex researcher took MRI images of a couple having sex. The images were assembled into a video (posted by New Scientist) showcasing a strange, discomfiting clash of the clinical and sexual: the study is un-seductively titled "Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Male and Female Genitals During Coitus and Female Sexual Arousal". In the video, you can hear somebody panting, but the black and white imagery resembles weather patterns. Or, more creepily, meat-grinding. Apparently nature doesn't look very much like porn. Oh well.

Video after the jump.
