Female Orgasms
How They Work

Studies show that ten to fifteen percent of all women who live in the United States have never had an orgasm. They also show that thirty five percent of women will never have an orgasm from sexual intercourse alone. This often leads many couples feeling that they are somehow inadequate or dysfunctional when it comes to having a satisfying sex life.

What Is A Female Orgasm

What makes a woman's orgasm unique is the way that it occurs and how she is able to achieve it. During sexual arousal, a woman's vaginal area fills with blood.

Muscles contract, physical tension builds and when her orgasm is finally unleashed, the tension, muscles and blood all course through her body in waves of pleasure. Her pelvic floor muscles contract and the uterus pulls in fluid in case sperm is there so that it can be sucked in and given a chance to create life.

During the stage of arousal a woman's vaginal lips (the labia minora) will swell and spread apart. Her clitoris, like the penis of a male, fills with blood and becomes erect. It becomes sensitive to touch and protrudes from beneath it's protective hood. Some women find that their nipples become erect, however this is not the case with all women and just because her nipples may not be erect, does not mean that she is not sexually aroused. During arousal a woman's breathing and blood pressure will increase. Her face will become flushed and vaginal juices will begin to flow, lubricating her vagina for the possibility of penetration.

There are no studies that have been able to demonstrate how all women are able to neurologically build to an orgasm. However, we do know that the muscles in a woman's pelvic floor (AKA PC muscles) will contract. As pleasure radiates through her body sometimes there is a desire to moan or deeply exhale. Others however, may find a quiet peace with no sound at all. There are many reactions to orgasms including laughing, crying and even combinations of the two. Women do not always experience orgasms the same way and can have some that are more deeply felt over others.

Variations of the pleasure and sensation of a female orgasm can depend on many factors such as mood, type of stimulation, intensity of stimulation, hormone levels, sobriety, fatigue, and partner.

If you want to help a woman have an orgasm, what I can suggest is to never neglect the clitoris. For those men reading this, take a moment to think of what it would be like to try and masturbate without touching the head of your penis. It is a real bummer to think about isn't it? After all, that is the most sensitive part and what feels best.

Well, that is the equivalent to the clitoris gentlemen and if you think that she is going to have an orgasm by gspot stimulation by itself I am going to tell you that honestly, unless she is very stimulated and has a sensitive gspot, it is a long shot. I am not saying it is not possible with the right intensity, stimulation and positioning but I am being very honest when I say that most women will not climax without her clitoris being stimulated in some way.

There are of course sexual positions that allow for her or you to rub against her clitoris and even manually stimulate it during sexual intercourse. We of course are also big advocates of vibrating rings as they accomplish stimulating the clitoris while making a man feel firmer and more engorged during sex which is a win win situation. There are also vibrating cockrings that have a second ring that holds the testicles away from your body helping men to last longer.

How Can You Tell If She Faked An Orgasm?

The truth is that women are so good at faking orgasms you will never really know. Many males out there will swear that they would be able to tell, but let me assure you even the best lovers can be fooled. Women can moan, squeeze their Kegel muscles to mimic an orgasm and even bear down at push. To learn more see - Why Women Fake Orgasms
