Women are less likely to orgasm than men

According to studies, only 18% of women can orgasm from vaginal penetration alone and 36% need clitoral stimulation to climax.

The orgasm gap refers to fact that, in heterosexual relationships, men have a way better chance at finishing than women.

Findings from a National Survey of Sexual Health and Behaviour show that men are more likely to orgasm than females.

It found 91% of men said they climaxed during their last sexual encounter, compared with 64% of women.

Edging can be very pleasurable

Edging involves building yourself up to orgasm before slowing down.

Depriving yourself of this climax makes your body want it any more.

Repeat this process for a few times before giving into your desires.

When climax finally arrives, it should feel even more intense.

Orgasms can be painful for some

More than 20% of women have painful orgasms that is a condition called dysorgasmia.

This term describes a pain during penetrative sex which is only felt at the point of orgasm, whether clitoral or otherwise.

There is little research on this topic but it is recommended you seek help from your doctor or physician if you're experiencing this problem.

Communication is key

Communication plays a huge role in relationships.

When women find something that works well for them, they should talk their technique through with their partner.

This teaches them how to bring you to climax – and you're more likely to enjoy a higher frequency of orgasms.
