Researchers in the UK say women who undergo Botox treatment in their face can find it harder to orgasm during sex.
Researchers at Cardiff University discovered that, because Botox makes it harder to produce facial expressions, women can’t show their partner if they are enjoying sex, the Daily Mail reports.

Dr Michael Lewis told the Daily Mail that in the same way people find it hard to be happy without smiling, so too do they struggle to reach orgasm without having control of the muscles in their face.
‘Facial expressions associated with orgasm utilise the same muscles targeted in typical botulinum toxin cosmetic treatments,” Dr Lewis said.
The study involved 36 women, 24 of who had been treated with Botox, measuring their Female Sexual Function Index Orgasm Satisfaction Score.
Those who had been treated noted a drop in their score, the Daily Mail reported.
