Female Orgasm Facts

How does the female orgasm work?

Female orgasms are very different from male orgasms, and vary in intensity, frequency, and stimulation needed, depending on the particular woman. Below is some basic information about each type of female orgasm:

Clitoral Orgasm

The clitoral orgasm is the most commonly experienced orgasm by women, which results from stimulating the clitoris—located beneath the clitoral hood above the vaginal opening. Some women may have trouble reaching clitoral orgasm due to clitoral hood enlargement, a condition that can be treated using clitoral hood reduction.

Vaginal Orgasm

Most women do not have consistent climaxing from vaginal penetration alone. Instead, the vast majority of women experience clitoral stimulation, which may be accompanied by g-spot stimulation in some cases. Many women choose to use services, such as g-spot amplification, to increase sensitivity during vaginal penetration. Alternatively, some women consistently use Kegel exercises to help tone the vaginal muscles and improve sexual pleasure during penetration.

Why do some women have trouble orgasming?

While most women are able to experience some form of orgasm, there are many women who have trouble consistently reaching climax, and a few women who never are able to reach climax. These women suffer from a medical condition called anorgasmia—the inability to climax, even after ample stimulation is provided.

Your ability to climax during sexual stimulation can vary based on a number of factors, including medical issues, age, emotional state, medications, prior sexual experiences, and much more. It is important to discuss any concerns with one of the female health experts at New York Center for Aesthetic Rejuvenation, who can help answer your questions about the female orgasm and provided treatment options to improve your sexual health, when needed.

How can I have a better orgasm?

Continued difficulty reaching an orgasm can be frustrating and diminish self-esteem. It is important to speak with a specialist if your lack of sexual pleasure has had an impact on your overall wellbeing and happiness. There are a number of medical treatments, including minimally invasive vaginal rejuvenation, which may help to improve your sex life and sexual gratification. Some of the numerous services provided by our women’s health experts at New York Center for Aesthetic Rejuvenation include:

Frequently Asked Questions about the Female Orgasm

Are orgasms good for your health?

Yes. According to studies, orgasms improve blood circulation which helps maintain healthy tissues.

Can women climax without clitoral stimulation?

Yes, it is possible. However, the vast majority of women do not usually reach orgasm without clitoral stimulation.

Do orgasms relieve stress?

Yes. Sexual release can give your mind and emotional state a break and may calm and relax you after a stressful day or week.

Does having an orgasm count as exercise?

While an orgasm is no substitute for daily exercise, it does trigger cardiovascular activity, increasing the heart rate and respiratory rate.

How many nerve endings are in the clitoris?

The clitoris has approximately 8,000 nerve endings. That means it is extremely sensitive!

Are orgasms good for your complexion?

Some women describe their skin as “glowing” after sex, and there may be scientific evidence behind this. Certain hormones, which promote healthy skin generation, tend to increase during sexual activity.

Do orgasms increase a woman’s pain threshold?

Yes. A woman’s pain threshold can increase over 100% during an orgasm.
