Pleasure can be brought about in different ways, depending on how every individual senses the feeling of pleasure.
People commonly feel this phenomenon through exercise, sexuality, music, drugs, writing, accomplishment, recognition, service, and any other imaginable activity; even pain. It also refers to "enjoyment" related to certain physical, sensual, emotional or mental experience.
The Pleasure center is the set of brain structures, predominantly the nucleus accumbens, theorized to produce great pleasure when stimulated electrically. Some references state that the septum pellucidium is generally considered to be the pleasure center  while others mention the hypothalamus when referring to pleasure center for intracranial stimulation.
