10 Amazing Facts About Female Climax You Didn’t Know

The female climax is as much an element of a woman’s health and well-being as dental floss, but a great deal more exciting!

Mary Roach, who delivered a Ted Talk in 2009 on climaxes, talked about ‘The Curious Case of a Woman,’ who experienced a climax every time she brushed her teeth! The intricate sensory-motor action caused by brushing teeth sparked the big ‘O’. She visited a neurologist who got the toothpaste tested, but every brand ended in the same result. Well, I am pretty jealous of this lady, because though she was masturbating while brushing, people must have admired her for her exceptional ‘O’ral hygiene!!

Amused? Well, brace yourselves, because we are going to ‘please’ you with 10 amazing facts about female climax that you might not have known before!

1. ‘Treat’ me well!

Yeah, it is better than Coldplay or Pink Floyd!

According to Lisa Stern, RN, MSN, who works at Planned Parenthood in Los Angeles as a nurse practitioner, There is some evidence that orgasms can relieve all kinds of pain—including pain from arthritis, pain after surgery and even pain during childbirth. The mechanism is largely due to the body’s release of a chemical called oxytocin during orgasm. Oxytocin facilitates bonding, relaxation, and other positive emotional states.” Even though this relief is only for eight to ten minutes, the ‘pleasure’ is worth the ‘spell’!

You may not have considered that something so pleasurable could also help with other pain points!

2. ‘O’hhhhhhhhmmmm! 😉

Yoga acts in mysterious ways, I must say!

Women who practice 22 yoga poses per week for 3 months report higher levels of sexual desire. Not only does their arousal increase, they also experience better climaxes. This amazing fact about the female climax was brought to light by a study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. Doing these stretches builds up the pelvic and abdominal muscles, which improves the quality of climax. Yoga, as we have known for centuries now, reduces depression and nervousness, so you are more likely to get in ‘the mood’!

3. Mach‘O’

Women are superficial? Let’s not even go there! A Penn State study has revealed that a woman is prone to climax at more or less the same time as her male partner and also experienced repeated climaxes to boot, if she finds him good looking or macho! See, it is not superficial – beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder! The link between looks and female climax is not clear. There could be evolutionary elements at play! According to clinical sex therapist Kat Van Kirk, “Heterosexual women may inherently desire masculine partners to have children with, and some research suggests that a vagina is more receptive to semen after orgasm–which boosts fertility. But don’t go trading partners just so you can hit your high notes together. It’s a cultural idea that a simultaneous orgasm is superior to an independent orgasm. It’s simply not true.”

4. Fake it ‘til you make it!

Why not? Most women do not instinctively scream out in pleasure or call out their partner’s name when they climax. The Archives of Sexual Behavior believes that women are expected to make more noise when her male partner is climaxing, so that she can improve his experience! Women have always been selfless!! 😉

In case you are the ‘mute’ kind, Van Kirk wants you to rethink your ‘strategy’! Kat holds, “Bedroom noises can help men and women become aroused.” We are not asking you to ape a p*rnstar; just get vocal in some way that makes you comfortable!

Faking is dishonest, but exaggerating during sex can help you get into a mindset where you’re enjoying yourself more,” updates clinical sexologist Eric Marlowe Garrison, who is also a coach of masculinity studies at the College of William and Mary. He says, Use your body to prime yourself for orgasm. I encourage clients who have trouble climaxing during masturbation to arch their backs, breathe deep and make noise.”

5.  Not just wine, org*sms too are better with age!

I know, there are numerous things to ‘moan’ about once you hit a certain age. But c’mon, age is just a number! Dr. Herbenick says that the quality and regularity of the female climax improves with age. She reports, “Orgasm becomes easier with age. As an example, while 61 percent of women ages 18 to 24 experienced orgasm the last time they had sex, 65 percent of women in their 30s did, and about 70 percent of women in their 40s and 50s did.” Though the report does not specify what makes the big ‘O’ better with age, we guess it is because of sexual expertise that the women have acquired. The bedroom is their playground and they know how to have a little fun there!

6. G- spot: Error 101!

Yes, you read that right, and I am not nuts! A 2014 study in Clinical Anatomy confirmed what sex gurus have been saying for years now: For most females, the ‘on site’ of climaxes is their clitoris, not their vagina or the much-popular G-spot! There is a reason why most people cannot spot the difference between the two. Nicole Prause, a sex researcher in UCLA informs, Orgasm causes rhythmic contractions in your vaginal and bottom sphincters, so it can feel like it’s happening everywhere.” To boost your bliss, don’t apply too much pressure on the clitoris when you are just starting out. Dr. Castellanos counsels that one can lightly touch and explore to find that part of the clitoris that is more responsive and you can use lube if needed or desired. Now, leisurely increase your pressure as well as your pleasure!

7. Mix n Match Mama!

If ‘every day you are shuffling,’ then reaching a climax can be a cake walk for you! Switching things up, according to Dr. Herbenick, makes it easier to reach a climax. She goes on to say, “It is significantly easier for women to experience orgasm when they engage in a variety of sex acts as opposed to just one act. For example, vaginal sex plus oral sex would be linked to a higher likelihood of orgasm than either one of them alone. This may be because more sex acts mean that people spend more time having sex.”

8. “Hugging and a kissing with Fred”

Why should boys have all the fun? Plus, foreplay isn’t just for fun! Most females with a known partner, waltz in to a climax more than half the time they have sex or engage in sexual activity. Kinsey Institute of Science also explained that if you have been failing repeatedly, it could be because “you get the same good stuff during arousal.” Prause exclaims, Orgasm isn’t particularly special; it’s just a concentrated version of what you experience in an aroused state.” So you have it; you can make your next ‘O’ special by ‘foreplaying’ better!

9. “Don’t get so hard on yourself!”

Many females take more time to reach their zenith than their partners. That is absolutely normal! Statistics have revealed that majority of women need at least 20 minutes of fondling and ‘getting naughty’ to climax. If you find that your partner often reaches orgasm before you do, there are ways to help him slow down,” says Dr. Stern. She adds, Mental exercises can sometimes work, and so can firm pressure around the base of the penis. If premature ejaculation is a concern, your partner may want to see a primary care doctor or urologist to find some techniques that might help.”

10. Love to be loved!

Low self-esteem is bad for everything, including improving the quality of your climax. Researchers show that a woman’s feelings about her private parts are related to her org*sms. As a women’s health clinician, I can vouch for the fact that every vagina looks different and there is no ‘perfect’ way for a vagina to look,” enlightens Stern. As long as your vagina is pain-free and you don’t have any abnormal discharge, sores, or other medical problems, you can consider yourself healthy and normal.” Boost up your confidence to perk up your sexual experience. You must treat yourself the way you want to be treated by others. Pull out a mirror and have a look at how beautiful you are. Yes, even down there. Love yourself, both body and spirit!

Nenia Campbell once wrote, “When they figure out how to bottle up orgasms and sell them as a food additive, I’ll be first in line.” But, until then, we need to work our way to the big ‘O,’ and to do that we must be aware of these facts about climaxes. Every day a new study is coming out, with a new discovery about the female climax. Just the other day, I read about how funny men are more likely to make a woman climax! I guess this can now help me understand my attraction to Ben Stiller!
