What is a female orgasm?
An orgasm is mind blowing! It is the experience of rhythmic muscular contractions in the pelvic region at a speed of around 0.8 per second.
The ‘big O’…orgasm sexual climax, coming…. call it what you want, the female orgasm is one of life’s simple and best pleasures. Each climax can feel different in terms of intensity and duration, depending on how and what part of your body is being aroused. Besides providing a physical release, it's also an emotional one—allowing you to feel closer to your partner or simply de-stress after a tough day.
How to orgasm: One of the many great things about being a woman is that there are plenty of ways we can enjoy an orgasm. Masturbation and sex with a partner are the ones you already know about but are there other ways?
Pleasure is the end goal!
It’s not a race to tick them all off the list, but we can have a lot of fun trying them out. Experimentation helps us find what we like and what we don’t. Plus, if you find something you like, practice makes perfect!
What does a female orgasm feel like?
Each woman experiences an orgasm differently, and each woman can have many different types of orgasm, so there is no one definitive answer to this question.
For most of us, it’s characterised by sexual arousal. A build-up of pressure that eventually – and often with the help of a ‘tipping point’ – releases along with muscle contractions in our pelvic region. Some of us find our body shaking, our skin feeling sensitive and, yes, we might even wake up the neighbours!
After an orgasm we can also enjoy the burst of hormones released by the climax. Oxytocin (known as the ‘love hormone’) and endorphins (they’re the ones that give you a big ‘high’) can combine to create a euphoric feeling that, if we could bottle it, could probably instigate world peace.
