The Female Orgasm: 15 Interesting Facts (Part 1)

The female orgasm. It’s been described as an elusive and mysterious thing, and even now, in the information age, there’s still a lot that we don’t know about it. Here is part one of our informative list of facts on the subject. Part two is coming soon.

Number Fifteen: Condoms Don’t Affect the Quality

Many people seem to think that condoms affect the quality of sex, but when it comes to (female) orgasms, this is not the case. Studies show that women are equally likely to have an orgasm with or without one.

Number Fourteen: Some Women Have Them and Don’t Know It

This is possible because not everyone experiences orgasms as an intense contraction of the pelvic floor. For some women, it’s milder, and will only be noticed as a slight change in mood.

Number Thirteen: The Female Orgasm Improves With Age

While many things deteriorate as you get older, this is not one of them. Studies have shown that the older a woman gets, the better the quality and frequency are of climaxes.

Number Twelve: Confidence Directly Affects It

Studies have shown that how a woman feels about her genitalia has an impact on the quality of her orgasms. It’s been said that to increase the quality of orgasms, you need to increase your self-confidence.

Number Eleven: They’re Possible in Non-Sexual Situations Too

This is not just an urban legend, although it sounds like one. Some women can have them from exercise, sitting on a train, or getting a massage, according to experts.

Number Ten: It’s Normal for It to Take a While

If you’ve found that it takes you up to 20 minutes or more to reach climax, don’t worry. It’s completely normal, and women are proven to take a lot longer than men, often times more than twice as long.

Number Nine: Doctors Used to Prescribe It

Back in the early 1900s, doctors believed that the female orgasm increased fertility. However, studies that came out in the 1960s proved that it does not increase the chances of conception. We hope you enjoyed part one of our article. Stay tuned for part two, coming soon!
