Are Yoga Orgasms Real?

We've previously talked about yogasms here at MBG, and The Daily Beast dives into the topic of yogis having orgasms during their practice. One of our favorite quotes in the story comes from Kelly Morris as she describes her first yogasm:

“The first time it happened to me I was in Sharon Gannon’s class at Jivamukti, and I was in forward bend. I was breathing and concentrating and suddenly, ‘Whoa!’” 
Marco Rojas has an explanation:
“When we work with yoga, we go from the superficial to the subtle. We go inward... I have found that my faithful students have improved their ability to love themselves and ultimately, to give themselves pleasure.” 
So what do you think?

Are yogasms for real? Have you ever experienced one?
