10 Things… Every Woman Should Know About Orgasms
It’s our favourite day of the year… Happy National Orgasm Day to one and all!
Lets pretend for a moment that we’re not shy, retiring, conservative, innocent angels and be up front about the big ‘O’, it's not that hard (yet).
In the words of Salt ‘N’ Pepa… Let’s talk about all the good things, and the bad things that may be… Let’s talk about sex.
Here are the 10 things every female should know about orgasms.
1. If you want something done right then you’re best doing it yourself.
Almost 50% of women experience their first orgasm through masturbation.
Finding out what gives you pleasure by yourself is crucial. Whether it is from sex toys, circular motion on your clitoris or vaginal stimulation…
Important: How can you expect anyone else to do it, if you don’t know how to do it yourself?
2. Yoga anyone?
You can have an orgasm during a yoga class, aptly titled a ‘Yogasm’.

3. Put it on…
Contrary to belief, condoms do not affect orgasm quality… So there is no excuse for him not to wear one.
4. We can get ‘blue balls’ too.
10% of women suffer from anorgasmia, i.e. can’t reach an orgasm.
5. Oh-oh-oh really?
Female orgasms can last up to 20 seconds, however the average length is between six-to-ten seconds.
6. He comes first… Don’t think so.
It takes an average of 8 minutes for a woman to reach her peak.
7. The O in orgasm should stand for OMG not Oscar Winning Performance.
Lad’s fake orgasms too. We know what you’re thinking… how is that possible? But as it turns out they’re better liars than we previously thought.
8. Talk the talk
Communication is the key to an amazing orgasm; so after you’ve figured out what it is that does it for you, share the information.
If you don’t feel like talking about it, then guide him in the right direction when you’re having sex.
9. Head… ache (sorry, we had to).
Studies have shown that almost half of all regular headache sufferers had their symptoms eased by orgasm, as orgasms are natural pain relief.
So what we're trying to say is, forget the paracetemol and just head for the bedroom.
10. Oh-ver come it…
You’re less likely to reach peak point if you’re feeling insecure or stressed. Insecurity kills it, and men feel it too.
Take time-out, a deep breath and relax… Orgasms are easier obtained when the body is fully relaxed, so let go…
So ladies go forth and celebrate this glorious day - whether you're doing it solo or with a partner, enjoy.
Now for that Salt N' Pepa classic...
