In addition to its reproductive function, we know that sexual intercourse is about pleasure and connection, which includes female orgasm. Sex can and should be pleasurable, but that’s not the case for every woman. That’s why it’s important that we talk about female orgasm and how we can help if you would like to improve your orgasm frequency and overall sexual responsiveness and pleasure.
The female orgasm occurs when the clitoris becomes engorged and enlarged with blood, similarly to the way a penis does. When sexual arousal begins, blood flow to all erogenous zones, including the clitoris, increases. With ongoing arousal and stimulation, the response of the nerve endings in crucial areas leads to muscle contractions that form the female orgasm.
Women can reach orgasm in a range of ways involving several parts of the genitalia, however sometimes issues such as vaginal dryness and pain can get in the way of an optimal female orgasm experience.
