Autonomic nerves: The autonomic (involuntary) nervous system is 2 parts: one called sympathetic and the other is parasympathetic. The sympathetic part is responsible for panic (fear fight flight anger and intense exercise) and also gets excited during orgasm. The problem is that fixing this problem is not as straight forward.
