Understanding Orgasms, Facilitating Relationships

Orgasm is an intensely pleasurable experience of sex. People are chasing orgasms, but they have many questions and even misunderstandings because they are usually hard to talk about. A detailed understanding of male and female orgasms is necessary to promote the relationship between partners. Recently, a journal summarizes various studies to answer the question of male and female orgasm.
  1. When a person has an orgasm, what is the psychological reaction? Orgasm has many psychological effects. Most prominently, during orgasm, the brain works “overtime,” producing a plethora of different hormones and neurochemicals. One of them is dopamine, which causes pleasure, excitement, desire and motivation. The brain also releases oxytocin, which makes sexual partners feel closer and promotes emotional development. In addition, other chemicals released by the brain can make a person less sensitive to pain during sex.
  2. Do men and women experience the same orgasm? The nerves that trigger orgasms in women are located in the clitoris, not the vagina. Therefore, it is generally difficult for them to achieve orgasm through sexual intercourse alone. Masturbation and distracting foreplay can greatly increase the possibility of orgasm, especially when more attention is paid to stimulating the clitoris. In general, female orgasms are often aroused by a combination of physical and psychological effects. If the stimulation continues, they can experience simultaneous and multiple orgasms in a short period of time. When the male sexual organs are stimulated, they can gradually reach orgasm. After orgasm, the reproductive muscles contract and lead to ejaculation. It usually takes minutes, hours or even days to reach another orgasm. Although the frequency of orgasm differs, the subjective experience of orgasm is the same for men and women.
  3. Do men need foreplay? It is widely believed that women need to be given enough foreplay before sex, but almost everyone ignores how men feel. In fact, men also need foreplay, and it is almost the same level as women. Foreplay increases men’s satisfaction with the relationship and reduces their (especially older men) sexual disturbances.
  4. Why are some men unable to orgasm? Some men are unable to orgasm because they cannot get an erection or maintain an erection for a long time; some men worry that their genitals are too short, or they are not interested in sex and other psychological reasons, preventing orgasm from happening. Most of them may experience sexual dysfunction related to age, illness or taking certain medications, but these disturbances are usually not related to their partner or their satisfaction with the relationship.
  5. Why is it harder for women to orgasm? Because in addition to physiological reasons, women’s enjoyment of orgasm is affected by more factors, including physical or genital discomfort, unreasonable sexual attitudes, little stimulation time during sexual activity, male partners do not know how to please women and so on. Know that whether a man claims to be half an hour or 20 minutes is not a valid amount of time for “her”.
  6. Why do women fake orgasms? Women often think more than men. For example, they will care about whether they are likable or not, and they will have to show their “acting skills” in order to avoid “embarrassment”. Faking an orgasm for a long time can hurt each other’s feelings invisibly. It is recommended to speak out about what you want in your sex life, and it will be more harmonious and satisfied if both of you are satisfied.
  7. What is the proportion of male and female orgasms? Studies have shown that only 25% of women will orgasm during vaginal intercourse, compared to 75%-95% of men. But both men and women, masturbation usually results in a faster and more consistent orgasm.
  8. What are the benefits of orgasm? Studies have found that orgasms not only boost blood flow to the brain and body, but also protect against certain cancers and heart disease. In addition, oxytocin, which is released during orgasm, promotes intimacy.
