You get wet down there

Much like men get erections, women get wet in time of arousal in order to prepare themselves for penetration. Author of Sex made easy, Dr Derby Herbenick says the production of vaginal fluids is caused by estrogen, therefore, women with higher estrogen will experience more lubrication than others.

Your nipples are erect

Due to being excited during arousal, the blood flow is bound to increase, making the erectile tissues react by hardening the nipples.

You get sex hot flushes

Science reveals that women’s body temparature increases during arousal, hence you’d hear women say ‘is it me or is it hot in here” when faced with a rather sexy situation.

Your vagina expands

Vaginal muscles expands three times its original size when you’re aroused. Author of Love sex again, Lauren Streicher says the female body is designed to adjust to be elastic and expand to accommodate everything from a large penis to childbirth.

You become more touchy

You respond well to touches during arousal more than you would on a normal basis. Touching could also be the reason behind your arousal.

Your pupils get dilated

Science shows that your pupils get dilated when you’re feeling erotic or sensual.

You let your guard down

Even the most shyest of women let their guard down once in a while. Arousal can make you do things you would never be caught doing in a normal state like dirty talking.
