Occassionally when I am talking with a close platonic friend, my vagina muscles contract. The sensation itself is kind of pleasant, and feels sort of like a post-orgasm contraction except that (1) it is less intense, (2) I don't feel sexually turned on, and (3) it is only a single contraction rather than a series of contractions like what I get after a normal orgasm. Another (perhaps more accurate) description is that it's like a spontaneous Kegel exercise.

Although the other person can never tell when this happens, I feel kind of guilty for it, as it usually happens when my friend is telling me something emotionally profound (often while they're in tears) and so I feel like a complete pervert whenever my vagina reacts this way.

Is this normal, or is it some kind of perverted sexual response to my friend's distress for which I should feel guilty?

So, you know that orgasm is something that actually happens primarily in the brain and central nervous system, right? Certainly, it's something people also often feel in the genitals and pelvic area, and which can, and often does, occur from genital stimulation, but really, when it all comes down to it, all orgasm is extragenital.

The vagina is surrounded by some really major muscles and muscle groups, so having those muscles contract, or be something we feel, during a zillion parts of life is pretty darn common. And when we have moments of intensity, or tenseness, it's common, I'd say to tense up our muscles. You're probably doing this with other muscles during times like these, too, you just may not feel it as acutely because they're not surrounded by as many sensory nerve endings as the vagina is.
