    Question What exactly is an orgasm?


    Ok, I have heard around that some women never have an orgasm. Is this just during sex with other people or do some never orgasm with masturbation? Could you even consider the climax from masturbation an orgasm? Do you have to have an orgasm to cum? Can you be satisfied without cumming? and finally, can you tell when you cum?

    Ha Ha my state needs better sex ed..

    Could you even consider the climax from masturbation an orgasm? - Yes, you can absolutely consider an orgasm from masturbation an orgasm. An orgasm does not have to involve another person.

    Do you have to have an orgasm to cum? In my case, no. I can cum without orgasm. Just from simple arousal.

    Can you be satisfied without cumming? IMO, yes, I can be satisfied without orgasm, without cumming, etc. My satisfaction is not solely derived by whether or not I get off, I'm satisfied by the overall connection of the act.

    Finally, can you tell when you cum? Maybe not during, but definitely after. And hubby can definitely tell when I cum.

    I use climax and orgasm interchangeably, and it doesn't matter by what source. According to an unsubstantiated source "Kinsey reports that approximately 10% of all married women have never experienced orgasm".

    I was just really surprised to hear that some women cant reach orgasm or have never had one. I guess that is because I have always had what you could consider a very active libido (from the age of 10 or so) and have never had any trouble in accomplishing a climax. I can see where you could fail to have an orgasm with a partner if they dont know their way around. But with masturbating I guess some people just never do it? which is an odd concept for me.

    There have been numerous women and husbands as well, post about how the women or the husbands wife do not masturbate, they don't feel comfortable with it, they don't know what to do, they find it repulsive for whatever reason be it morally, religiously, etc.

    Personally, if you can't please yourself, I would find it difficult for a SO to be able to please you. You've got to be familiar with your body and know what you enjoy and respond to in order to be able to direct someone else to please you as well.

    I see.. what a shame. thanks for making it a lot clearer. I have tried having this conversation with my sister. Even though we are close I still found it awkward. I suppose I didnt want to seem ignorant. but than again she wasn't very elaborate on her responses lol.
