You probably are well aware of the fact that orgasms occur because of muscle contractions in the body, combined with an increase in blood pressure.
A result of intense pleasure, when it comes to decoding the female orgasm secrecy, one can glance through several books, publications, online reviews and whatnot! But having gone through all of this, most men (and at times women) remain confused. If you are among the bewildered, today we have jotted down for you top 5 facts about female orgasms with help from Dr A Chakravarthy, Consultant in Reproductive & Sexual Medicine at International Association of Sexual Medicine. Read on...
No#1 Myth about Female Orgasms: Generally, women can attain orgasm only through sexual intercourse.
Fact: One of three women gets orgasms on a regular basis during sexual intercourse. Few can attain orgasms with sexual intercourse but require extra acts to arouse action. Recent studies show that an orgasm is a sexual climax no matter which way you get it. How a woman reaches an orgasm has nothing to do with her mental health or emotional maturity.
No#2 Myth about Female Orgasms: Lacking the power to reach orgasm means that something is wrong with the women or her spouse.
Fact: Women who were capable of sexual climax in the past, but can no more do so, may be troubled with some medical issues or fallout from medicinal drugs. Women who have never arrived at sexual climax successfully, may simply be unaware about what they need to be able to attain orgasm.
No#3 Myth about Female Orgasms: Clitoris or G-spot stimulation of 5 minutes can result in orgasm, post that there is no chance of success.
Fact. While there are lots of ways of love making that can help a woman reach sexual climax, in the end, a woman is the cause for her own pleasure. Intercommunication between partners is important as well. It is up to the woman to communicate with her partner.
No#4 Myth about Female Orgasms: Hereditary and genes have a straight impact on the female orgasm.
Fact. Twin-based grounds show that orgasm frequency has a mild hereditable component. However, hereditary factors are the reasons for only a third of the population-level variation in female orgasm.
No#5 Myth about Female Orgasms: A few women are simply not capable of achieving orgasm.
Fact: About 10% of women have the disability of not attaining sexual climax during sexual intercourse. This inability to reach orgasm is known as Anorgasmia. It may either be primary or secondary. Primary Anorgasmia is a stage in which a woman has never been able to attain sexual climax by any means. Secondary Anorgasmia is an orgasm felt at some point in the past times or situational (orgasm may be felt in certain intimate spots but not others; for instance, with foreplay but not with sexual intercourse).
