They seem so easy and straightforward in the movies: you have sex, moan a little, moan a little louder and, voila, you nail the "Big O" every time. That's because orgasms are anything but simple. They require a complex dance of physical stimulation and reaction. Your genitals are touched and respond appropriately, sending a stream of electrical signals to your brain, which, in turn, barks back orders to lubricate the vagina, pump blood to the area, and increase breathing. When every link in the chain does its job, you explode in a satisfying torrent of sensation.
In some ways, any conversation about the female orgasm is defunct before it even starts. After all, little is known about it, it varies hugely for every woman, and, for a lot of women it comes with no sudden physical ejaculation of fluid as it does with a man, rendering the entire thing a much more subjective and interiorised experience. And yet, perhaps this is all the more reason to talk about it, not only from a scientific point of view, but a socio-cultural one too. In general, when it comes to sex with a partner, men have more orgasms than women. Straight women?
By Stephen Matthews For Mailonline. But new research proves the opposite. Seven in 10 women are able to climax numerous times with their partner.
A sexpert appeared on a UK morning news programme earlier this week to urge all women to orgasm at least three times a week. Speaking on the ITV show This Morning , Andrea Pennington from Detroit, said many women are missing out on having mind-blowing climaxes because they are too stressed. The physician and meditation teacher told presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that "90 per cent" of an orgasm is in a woman's mind, so if she is distracted or worried, she won't achieve one. She said: "She needs to be mentally turned on. If in her head she is worried about what she didn't finish today or what will the kids eat tomorrow or how she looks and smells and tastes then it will be much harder.
