15 Fascinating Facts About the Female Orgasm You Need to Know

15 Fascinating Facts About the Female Orgasm You Need to Know

The female orgasm has always been a subject of great mystery. Seldom discussed and often ignored, there is little known about the big O. So for all those men and women who've conveniently chosen to ignore this vital subject for so long, here are some fascinating facts about the female orgasm, which can be eye-opening. Take a look.



1. Direct clitoral stimulation is the best way for women to have an orgasm. According to research more than 70 per cent women enjoy an orgasm as a result of this and can even have multiple of them.

2. The distance between a woman's clitoris and her vaginal opening is related to having an orgasm during vaginal intercourse. The smaller the distance the easier it is to reach orgasm due to the indirect stimulation received by the clitoris.

3. Did you know that an orgasm can actually help cure pain? A study found that 48 per cent of headaches women have can actually be relieved by an orgasm; it works faster than a painkiller.

4. Unlike popular belief there aren't two types of orgasms (clitorial and vaginal) but just different ways of reaching an orgasm.

5. An average female orgasm can last for 6 to 10 seconds while some lucky ones may experience it for up to 20 seconds.

6. Dear men, take note, a woman in an insecure relationship is less likely to have an orgasm.

7. An orgasm burns only two to three calories but it is all the work done, like foreplay and intercourse to achieve it that can burn up to 50 calories.

8. The male and female private parts are homologous and are formed from the same tissue in the developing embryo.

9. Have you heard of Nipplegasms? Yes, they are a thing. Some women experience orgasm from nipple stimulation only. Nipple stimulation apparently activates the same brain regions as clitorial and vaginal stimulation.

10. A longer penis does not increase the chances of having a better orgasm, as goes the myth. The only reason some women prefer a longer penis is because the cervix stimulation is more; it can also help reach an orgasm.

11. Some women can also have an orgasm in their sleep. According to research, 37 per cent women have had an orgasm in their sleep.

12. There's more reason to get some much-needed workout. Exercising especially abdominal exercises can give women an orgasm. Exercises like yoga, running, swimming and weight training can all give you a coregasm.

13. The clitoris contains 8,000 sensory nerve-endings, which makes it extremely sensitive.

14. For some women even simply kissing can be orgasmic. So don't just concentrate on the clitoris or vagina. Like we mentioned, there are different ways of experiencing that big O.

15. The pain threshold of a woman increases to up to 107 per cent during climax.
