Everything you need to know about an orgasm

By Tatyana Dyachenko

An orgasm is defined as the sexual climax that is reached during sexual intercourse. It is a pleasurable physical, psychological or emotional response to sexual stimulation that is accompanied by involuntary muscle spasms, contractions and often, vocal outbursts.

Men and women both achieve orgasms that share some physiological similarities such as:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Muscle tension
  • Increased blood flow
  • A euphoric sensation

Fatigue or need to rest afterwards, due to the release of the hormone prolactin
Exclusive to women is the swelling of the clitoris and vaginal lips because these sex organs become engorged with blood. The breasts become engorged, nipples erect, vagina wet and expansion also occurs.

The real truth about orgasms is that over 60 percent of the female population does not reach orgasm from vaginal stimulation alone. What’s worse is that some women have never reached an orgasm at all.

No, it’s not the lack of skilled lovers in the world or that these ladies are sexually dysfunctional, but that perhaps they haven’t been introduced to a vibrator.

Vibrators are designed to pulsate and massage the genitals of men and women, concentrating on the parts that elicit orgasms. For a woman, the sexual organ that creates the best orgasms when touched is the clitoris.

Women all over the world have testified that a clitoral orgasm is much easier achieved, and has an overall better feeling than straight vaginal or G-spot stimulation. In fact, there is some debate about whether a G-spot orgasm even exists.

As mentioned earlier, the clinical definition of an orgasm includes involuntary muscle contractions. When a woman supposedly experiences a G-spot orgasm, the body and pelvic muscles do not necessarily tighten and release.

Oftentimes, the contractions happen so quickly that they are not noticed, but try rubbing your fingers on your clitoris for a while or pressing a vibrator against the tender spot, and you will experience an orgasm complete with body spasms, contractions all in a matter of minutes.

So, what is so special about the clitoris?

Scientists can’t really explain it. Physiologically, the clitoris and the penis are homologous. So imagine if stimulation to a cock feels good why would touching the clit not feel the same? That aside, some scientists think that clitoris is a vestigial organ, serving no purpose other than increasing sexual pleasure.

And for this reason, the adult industry has cashed in on vibrators, playfully called clitterific, that are specifically designed to tease a woman’s clitoris until she is having a dripping wet, moaning and shaking orgasm.

Some vibrators combine twirling and shaking dongs with the clit teasers to give the woman both vaginal and clitoral stimulation, which brings us back to the initial 60 percent of woman that do not orgasm from vaginal stimulation alone. You probably overlooked the “alone” in the above statement, but rest assured you’ve now learned that vaginal stimulation isn’t the only way to get you to the big O.

For the men, orgasm is less complicated. It entails:

Rapid rhythmic contractions of the prostate, urethra and muscles at the base of the penis

Expulsion of stored semen in adults

A refractory period (waiting time to achieve another orgasm) of anywhere from a half a minute to over half a day.

Men can also achieve an orgasm similar to a G-spot orgasm in women through stimulation of the prostate gland via the anus. And in some cases, with practice or a vibrator, men can achieve multiple orgasms.

A vibrator used this way can be applied continuously to the penis or inserted into the anus to bring about orgasms that seem to eliminate the refractory period and are more intense.

A vibrator can be a necessary tool in bringing one to orgasm. Some have proven to be the magic sex toy that helps many women achieve their very first orgasm.
