Orgasm FAQ

FAQ.What is an orgasm?

From the Keep It Simple, Stupid (KISS) Guide: Orgasm is intense sexual excitement which steadily builds during sexual activity and crescendos into a peak of extreme sexual pleasure. Physiologically, it is a release of the muscular tension and engorged blood vessels that build up during sexual excitation.

FAQ.Why is it difficult for many women to reach orgasm during sex?

This issue concerns many women. About 15% to 20% of sex therapy cases involve women who have never had an orgasm, and there are probably many more who have not sought therapy.

Many factors can influence a woman’s ability to have an orgasm during intercourse. Physical, emotional, and social factors play a strong role in determining whether or not a woman experiences an orgasm.

Physically, women usually need a bit more stimulation than men to achieve an orgasm. The clitoris is the center of physical sexual arousal for most women. However, the clitoris is not located in a place that is particularly likely to be stimulated during vaginal intercourse, and so it is physically very difficult to get adequate stimulation from most intercourse positions unless effort is made to provide that stimulation.

Practice and communication are important in order to find out what is most effective in fostering an environment that will lead to a woman’s orgasm. For instance, finding ways to start “warming up” before actual intercourse begins (talking, touching, flirting, fantasizing) may help. In addition, having a kind, caring, and experienced partner is certainly of benefit.

Ultimately, a good balance of emotional and physical stimulation is the best way to ensure that a woman achieves an orgasm.

FAQ.How might a man increase the amount of time before he ejaculates?

Communication between partners about expectations with intercourse can help to determine whether or not extending the time to ejaculation is necessary. Also, making a conscious effort to attempt to increase the amount of time a man can engage in sex prior to ejaculating may help.

Consider the following:

* Practice extending the time to ejaculation while masturbating/fantasizing.
* Use a condom in the hopes of reducing penis hypersensitivity.
* Try topical anesthetic gel or cream to reduce penis sensitivity. Avoid gels or creams that contain oil or lanolin as they can weaken or destroy the latex in condoms.
* Experiment to find positions or activities which keep him in a pre-ejaculatory phase longer than what is normal for him.

FAQ.Does masturbation help a woman in achieving an orgasm?

Masturbation is often a good place to start, so that she can learn what stimulates her. It would hopefully not become a replacement for her partner’s role.

FAQ.What is the clitoris, and where is it located?

The clitoris is a round nub of tissue that is highly sensitive to touch and swells when aroused during sexual activity. It is the female counterpart to the male penis. It is above the opening to the vagina (fairly easy to find) and the opening to the bladder (a little harder to find). It sits under a fold of skin, which resembles a tent, and is round and soft. It is under the point where the outer lips meet, and above the meeting point of the inner lips.

FAQ.What is the G spot, and where is it located?

It is a location (maybe a lump) inside and on the top wall of the vagina, about 1/4 – 1/3 into the vagina that some feel is a source of potentially strong orgasm in women. It has not been medically accepted as a physical object. It is named after Grafenberg, a gynecologist who first described it. There are no universal conclusions as to whether it exists, if only some women have it, or exactly what it is. More research is needed, but many women have areas in their vaginas which are very sensitive to touch.

FAQ.How does a woman achieve a G-spot orgasm?
