“You know that stuff they say about a woman being responsible for her own orgasms? That’s all true. And in my case, that makes me responsible for pretty damned good orgasms these days. Much better orgasms than when I was twenty-two. And I wouldn’t let a man control that. Not anymore. Now I’d invite him to participate. I’ll tell you this: I’ve learned my tricks. I know what I like. I do not wait around. I initiate. And I’m not all about frequency. I favor intensity. … There have been some men in my life who have been wickedly sexy and have taught me much about sexual pleasure. There are a few men I should thank, and others I need to forget. But I don’t regret. To hell with regret. I like what I am now. I like being a mother. I like my body better since I became a mother. I feel sexier as a result of becoming a mother.” — Halle Berry in Esquire Keep reading »
I don’t know about the people in this video, but I would seriously rather never orgasm again than be in practically a constant state of climax. I mean, how distracting. Keep reading »
Most women need clitoral stimulation to achieve an orgasm, but there are some of us that can climax with just vaginal stimulation. Now, we can all get lucky by barely touching our lady parts. The makers of “Slightest Touch” say their device can trigger an intense orgasm without touching the genital area.
Here’s how it works: Drink an electrolyte sports drink 20 minutes before using the device, then attach two electrode pads extending from the “Slightest Touch” to the inside of ankles and then turn on the device to start the stimulation. The device doesn’t actually cause an orgasm, instead, it stimulates the nerves sending gentle pulses up the woman’s leg for between 10 and 30 minutes leaving her on the verge of climax.

According to Belgian researchers, how you walk is related to how you orgasm. They studied tapes of a controlled group of women walking on the street, where 50% percent of the group claimed they get an orgasm solely from stimulating their clitoris, while the other 50% can orgasm through intercourse without clitoral stimulation. The report is published with a lot of high-brow lingo, but basically, the “sexologists” associated a good strut, complete with sashaying hips, with the ability to orgasm with only penetration. Surprisingly enough, they were 81% accurate! Even still, these “experts” still weren’t able to pick out women who required clitoral stimulation….isn’t that the story of our lives. Something tells us this study is just a load of good guessing B.S. [Psych Central] Keep reading »
While Viagra is an invention that has helped grandpas around the country get it back up for their spouses, nurses, and right hands, it now may be able to help women too! A recent eight-week experiment, funded by pharmaceutical company Pfizer, followed 98 women who were having trouble orgasming due to antidepressant medication. They were given Viagra and asked to have sex once a week with the pill’s aide. Seventy-two percent of the girls gave the erectile dysfunction drug the thumbs up! Although it didn’t increase their libido, the ladies reported that it did help them climax. But the findings certainly have some critics — 27% of the women in the control group who were given a placebo pill also reported satisfaction. However, despite shelling out cash for the study, Pfizer says it will not seek FDA approval for females to use Viagra, since it concluded in 2004 that there were no explicit benefits. If you’re still searching for a pick-me-up that’ll work with your antidepressant, there’s a clitoral therapy device approved by the FDA already, and libido-enhancing LibiGel is currently being tested. It looks like women will have plenty of options without having to pop pills like Bob Dole. [Orlando Sentinel] Keep reading »
After chatting with the guys on my IM yesterday about how often they bring a girl to orgasm, I started thinking about faking it. Most of them said they didn’t think women really faked with them and would prefer that they didn’t. So here’s a question for you: Keep reading »
According to our own Nookie Know-It-All as much as 75% of women cannot orgasms during intercourse, with 12% being unable to come, like, EVER. But it always amazes me that despite these statistics — which, I admit, do vary in number — men still seem to think they have no trouble getting ladies off in the sack. So, in honor of National Orgasm Month, I decided to poll the guys on my IM about how often they think they complete the deed and then was prepared to present them with the cold hard facts. But it turns out, they don’t really seem to be living in a dream world after all. Maybe they just feel so comfy with me (and The Frisky) that they don’t feel the need to pretend. Their responses, after the jump. Keep reading »
“What percentage of women have an orgasm during intercourse? The stats I’ve read really seem to vary, with some studies making it seem kind of rare. Is that true?” – Curious About Climaxes, Cleveland, OH
General statistics (which vary as much as your orgasms do) show a whopping 75% of women failing to reach orgasm during intercourse. 12% percent NEVER EVER achieve one, even through self-stimulation.
A lot of this has to do with knowing your body well enough to determine what turns you on and what doesn’t. I didn’t achieve my first orgasm until my mid-20’s, and didn’t find a partner I could have regular orgasms with until I was almost 30 (I’m 29 now, so you do the math).

“If I masturbate too much will I be unable to get off when a guy goes down on me?” — Solo Satisfier, Baltimore, MD
Unlike guys, the more a girl masturbates the more likely she is to have an orgasm during sex (intercourse or oral). Masturbating might actually help you achieve an orgasm FASTER. The more we know our bodies (and what movements turn us on), the more we’re able to translate that experience in the sack.

I’ve been dating a guy for about a month and a half. Every thing is great — similar outlooks on life, we share a lot of opinions on things etcetera — except for one thing. In that time period, during our above average sex life, I’ve climaxed once. ONCE. His technique is just fine, but for some reason its not happening. Typically oral sex does the trick for me, but even that’s not working. Now I feel like there’s so much pressure on it to happen that it makes it even harder now. Thoughts? Advice? New techniques? — Have You Seen My Orgasm?, Brooklyn, NY Keep reading »
