The nightly routine begins again. He lies on top of her. She feels his wetness. He kisses her forehead. She then says, staring upwards, “Honey our ceiling needs painting.” When it comes to sex, women are absolutely levels away. Do women have orgasms or do they fake them for their partner’s ego? Taboo to discuss, female orgasms are as complex as they are simple. They are about attachments and social glue. Not merely babies.
Issues related to sex are not talked about enough even with a health care provider. Let’s just start by saying, 65 per cent of women are embarrassed to say the word vagina and 45 per cent of women never talk about their vagina with anyone, not even with their doctor. Though attitudes on sex have changed, 10 to 20% of all women report they have never have never experienced orgasm. Are orgasms faked? Well, 80% experienced orgasm. Yes, women can experience orgasms. But is it important?
An orgasm is a climax of sexual excitement. While sex and orgasms are popular, there are other triggers. Some people receive orgasms from great foods, chocolates, conversation, events, and more. Asking someone special to dinner might be a prelude to relationship depth. Some find exercise as sexual. Planned Parenthood reports that in a 2000 survey, 39 percent of 2,632 U.S. women reported masturbating to relax. Orgasms may help improve complexion. The fabulous thing about the benefits of orgasm on your skin is that it doesn’t involve any fancy and expensive creams or lotions. But the best part is that you can reap all the good benefits orgasming alone, just as much as you can with a partner! According to Healthline, orgasms increase circulation to organs in the pelvic cavity, delivering nutrients, growing healthy tissues, and regulating your menstrual cycle. There are many health benefits to having orgasms, apart from calorie use. Just think of things that make you climax.
Dream cycles in sleep have been associated with orgasms. Wet dreams occur during sleep and consist of ejaculation for men or vaginal lubrication for women. They are also known as nocturnal emissions. They are sometimes interpreted as a spontaneous orgasm with associated dream content. Women may not be aware of the occurrence of vaginal lubrication or wetness during sleep associated with a wet dream, it is thought that they also experience this phenomenon, according to Verywell website. Yes, orgasms may occur when least expected in the unconsciousness of sleep.
When it comes to sex, men enjoy pursuit and conquest but how do women feel? Perhaps it’s attraction? Or other things. But do women experience orgasm through this sexy act? It seems sensuality takes a superior role over sexuality as per modern studies as to whether women orgasm in relationships or alone or ever. It may just be reproductive.
There was a classic Jerry Seinfeld TV show that covered that women fake orgasms. This was astounding to the male ego. Do women care for orgasms? Are men really necessary? So I came across this research article about how mysterious the female orgasm is. Based on animal studies, the presumption was orgasms led to reproductive success. Some research suggests that orgasms still create the perfect conditions for conception — even if they’re not necessary to ovulate.
Frequency of sex change upon meeting and after marrying. Based on survey results, early relationships report 31 percent of couples have sex several times a week; 28 percent of couples have sex a couple of times a month; and 8 percent of couples have sex once a month. However, another study, printed in The University of Chicago Press about 10 years ago, stated that married couples are having sex about seven times a month, which is a little less than twice a week. It’s risky to cite statistics on sexual satisfaction for a few reasons. This is because much of the data is from self-reported information. Based on psychological data, there is a decrease in both frequency and satisfaction as couples are together longer. Then there are hormonal changes. An average middle-aged adult might be 54 times/year (about 1/week).
Age decreases importance of frequency. There may actually be health benefits to maintaining your sex life. One study published in 2016, for instance, compared cognition to the sexual activity of people between 50 and 89. Women tend to report sensual companionship over sexual. It appears orgasm is less centered but touch is greater. Penetration is less important. Or is it? Among healthy baby boomers orgasms are more solo. Sex toy sales have risen in the over 60 population. A vibrator allows you to feel and give pleasure without vaginal penetration – a plus for women who have issues with dryness or pain during intercourse. Ironically, among women over 60,
In the early 1970’s, a young feminist, Shere Hite, published a 600 page book on female sexuality. The Hite Report revealed, based on surveys, the national study revealed that many women faked orgasms.
According to Medical News Today, the social expectations surrounding women’s orgasms can be particularly distressing to women who don’t always experience them. And when depictions of sex in the media are thrown into the mix, the gap between expectation and reality widens even further.
A Population Research Institute at the Family Federation of Finland study in Helsinki – asked more than 8,000 women in Finland about their sexual experiences. Prof. Kontula found that in 2015, only 6 percent of women said that they always had an orgasm during penile-vaginal intercourse, 40 percent said they had an orgasm nearly always, 16 percent of women had an orgasm half the time, and 38 percent had one infrequently. A total of 14 percent of women under the age of 35 had never had an orgasm from intercourse. Many had experienced orgasms through masturbation.
According to Woman’s Day, When you have a headache, it’s pretty common to go to bed. But you shouldn’t be sleeping. “There is some evidence that orgasms can relieve all kinds of pain, including pain from arthritis, pain after surgery, and even pain during childbirth,” says Lisa Stern, R.N., a nurse practitioner who works with Planned Parenthood in Los Angeles. It’s largely due to the body’s release of oxytocin during orgasm, a chemical that facilitates bonding, relaxation, and other positive emotional states, she explains.
Woman’s Day goers on: According to recent research, 10-40% of women report having difficulty or an inability to reach orgasm. One of the best ways to fix that is through clitoral stimulation, Stern says. But medical treatment can also help, as some women suffering from female sexual dysfunction (FSD) may find topical testosterone therapies or oral medications to be helpful. Unfortunately, there isn’t a ton of solid medical evidence behind these treatments yet, which is why it’s important for researchers to keep digging. In the meantime, anyone experiencing difficulty should talk to their doctor as FSD can be associated with other medical conditions, including thyroid disease, depression, and diabetes.
Psychology Today reported across multiple different studies from the last several decades of research, scientists have consistently observed that between 60 and 80 percent of women will not orgasm during sex, and that a further 10 percent won’t orgasm at all in their lifetime.
Is it that men don’t care about discovering what turns women on or is it that most women are not interested? A recent study indicates that masturbation is preferred.
Culturally, to this day, female orgasms are suppressed by ritual removal of a young girl’s clitoris. Called female genital mutilation and cutting FGM/C, according to US government statistics researchers estimate more than 513,000 girls and women in the U.S. have experienced or are at risk of FGM/C within the USA. They add, “Worldwide, as many as 140 million girls and women alive today have been cut.” Although illegal in USA since 1996, FGM/C is reported on the news as on-the-rise in the USA. For faith or culture, many women have been served gender injustice for not being allowed to experience orgasm.
Amidst romantic notions and passions, women are capable of orgasms. How many are faked? A study, reported in Psychology Today in 2019, included 1,008 women between the ages of 18 and 94 who responded to a confidential Internet-based survey. The women were mostly heterosexual and they all lived in the United States. The results indicate that 58.8 percent of participants reported faking an orgasm at some point in time, but two-thirds of those who had ever faked an orgasm in the past indicated they no longer did. Other studies have found that anywhere from 25 to 74% of women admit to having faked an orgasm at some point in their lives within a couple relationship.
Female orgasms are more complex and varied than male orgasms. The high importance that society places on sex, combined with our incomplete knowledge of the orgasm, has led to a number of common misconceptions. There is researched evidence that orgasms are also not widely considered to be the most important aspect of sexual experience. One study reported that many women find their most satisfying sexual experiences involve a feeling of being connected to someone else, rather than basing their satisfaction solely on orgasm.
Overall, apart from reproduction, pleasure may be derived with or without orgasm by women. There are far more dimensions to relationship integrity. Even post-feminism, discussing orgasms is still taboo among women. The idea is a pro-choice issue. Partner or solo, orgasms are healthy and an integral part of living but not necessarily central to well-being on other levels.
Do you need orgasms? According to Medical News Today. “Several hormones that are released during orgasm have been identified, such as oxytocin and DHEA; some studies suggest that these hormones could have protective qualities against cancers and heart disease. Oxytocin and other endorphins released during male and female orgasm have also been found to work as relaxants.”
The high importance that society places on sex, combined with our incomplete knowledge of the orgasm, has led to a number of common misconceptions. Females seem to appear happier feeling/being strongly connected to someone else, rather than basing their satisfaction solely on orgasms. Females do have orgasms but relatedness is the nurture that tops the nature. Female orgasms might act as a kind of social glue.
