Why do some women orgasm more often than others?

By: informatics |Time : September 05, 2019, 07:40:40 AM
It’s an enduring mystery among men and women alike. We decided to explore the enigma.

There are many theories surrounding the elusive female orgasm. Some people believe they only make appearances when conditions are just right. Some believe they come in groups. Some believe they don’t exist at all. So, what’s the truth?

Well, it’s complicated.

While a male orgasm’s function is straightforward (men need to orgasm to release sperm and fertilize an egg), a woman’s orgasm doesn’t serve a direct biological purpose. In fact, scientists aren’t sure why female orgasms still exist. Some speculate that they could be a way to make women bond with a partner. Others believe they happen because the penis and clitoris are formed from the same genetic “blueprint”. Still others believe that female orgasms are just an evolutionary leftover from when more primitive humans’ bodies needed to be stimulated to trigger ovulation.

Making the female anatomy even more complicated: A woman’s reproductive system has several additional functions that require more nuances to their anatomical structure and open more variables for how they’re laid out.

But even if science can’t explain the whys of female orgasms, they have managed to offer up some hope on the hows. Here’s a primer on why some women orgasm more often than others.

Let’s get physical

Fun fact: The clitoris’ one and only function is pleasure. It’s the only organ in both the male and female body with this singular purpose. So, it should be easy for a woman to achieve orgasm, right? Wrong.

Since woman don’t need to orgasm to achieve the biological goal of sex—reproduction—women get shafted (no pun intended) when their bodies start forming their sex organs. The clitoris isn’t in the ideal position to be stimulated directly during penetrative sex, so a woman with a completely normal clitoris could still have issues climaxing from sex alone.

Factor in that there are so many variables in the location, size, and sensitivity of each woman’s clitoris, and things get even more nuanced—although it does help explain why women orgasm at different frequencies. “There is evidence that the size and location of a woman's clitoris affects her ability to orgasm,” says Danielle Harel, co-founder of Celeste & Danielle Sex Experts and co-author of Making Love Real: The Intelligent Couple's Guide to Lasting Intimacy and Passion. “Women who have smaller clitorises that are farther away from their vaginas can have a more difficult time orgasming and might take longer to get there.”

Other physical factors can affect a woman’s ability to orgasm as well. Hormonal imbalances, such as menopause and pregnancy, can make it more difficult—or, in some unique cases, easier and more intense.


All in her head?


Another fun fact: Orgasms happen in the brain as much as they happen down below. So, if your partner’s brain is blocked from climaxing, her body will be as well.

More specifically, the mental blocks affecting a woman’s ability to orgasm can tie back to certain value systems that stressed that sexuality and desire are more immoral for women than for men (aka slut-shaming).

“Women are told from an early age that sex is not for them, that it is dangerous and shameful, and that they need to protect themselves against being used,” Harel explains. “This often causes women to distance themselves from their desire, and become more distractible during sex.”

Another double-standard women often have to face in adolescence: The notion that while it’s normal and healthy for boys to masturbate and explore their sexuality, equivalent behavior in a girl would mean she’s “oversexed”. That sort of thinking has effects lasting into adulthood. “Women who are less ashamed and scared of sex are more likely to masturbate regularly, to know what they need, and to feel comfortable asking for it, making it much more likely that they will orgasm,” Harel says. “They may also be more likely to feel comfortable bringing their vibrator to sex, which can definitely increase their likelihood of orgasming regularly.”


Bringing out the big O


While heterosexual men reported that they orgasm 95% of the time from sex, heterosexual women only did 65% of the time, a recent study found. Even more interesting: Lesbian women reported orgasming 85% of the time. Interesting, yes. But surprising? No.

“Women need clitoral stimulation, and lesbians likely have more oral and manual sex with a lot of clitoral stimulation,” Harel explains. “Plus, they know what makes them orgasm, and can offer this to their partners.” Lesbians are working at an advantage because they’ve got a deeper understanding of their lady parts, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a cue from them.

“Heterosexual couples may go much more quickly to intercourse, even though many women cannot orgasm from intercourse alone,” Harel says. Bottom line: Lesbian sex focuses less on penetration and emphasizes clitorial stimulation, something men can take a cue from.

The same study found that women who orgasmed frequently (as opposed to those who orgasmed often) were receiving more oral sex, having sex for longer, incorporating manual simulation, and making out more. On the emotional side, they reported being happier in their relationships, asking for what they wanted in bed, sexting their partner, trying new sexual positions and fantasies, talking dirty, and saying “I love you” during sex.


What you can do to help her achieve orgasm more often

Besides get down there more often? To get the big O, you need the big C—communication. By exposing yourself and your vulnerabilities about your sexual performance to your partner, you put her at ease about hers. Tell her what you like, and find out what she likes. Ask her to explore her body on her own and find what works for her. Experiment with new things, and ease your way into exploring more risque and liberating aspects of your sexuality together. She’ll be coming (pun intended) for more in no time.

Doesn't really explain why it exists tbh
Perhaps if women didn't have it they probably won't even bother to have sex.

Scientists finally solve the mystery of the female orgasm: Climax is linked to prehistoric women's need to be stimulated in order to release an egg for fertilisation


It's a question which has intrigued scientists for centuries – why do women have orgasms?

But a team of Yale researchers claim to have finally discovered the answer and it’s all to do with ovulation.

They believe that in the past, our female ancestors only released an egg after being stimulated by a male just before or during sex. This is still the case for numerous species of mammals – including rabbits, ferrets, camels and cats.

Once stimulated, the prehistoric female would have released certain hormones causing her to ovulate and the egg was then fertilised by sperm. But over hundreds of thousands of years their bodies evolved to ovulate by themselves – once a month

This means a woman’s orgasm – famously simulated by Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally – now has no reproductive function, and this is what has baffled scientists.

Professor Gunter Wagner, who specialises in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale, believes that in the past all female mammals ovulated after having an orgasm. It was only later on that some species – such as humans, dogs, cows and rats – evolved to ovulate by themselves during cycles.

Professor Wagner, whose discovery is published in the journal JEZ-Molecular and Developmental Evolution, focused on the hormones released by different female mammals during sex. Most release a surge of the ‘feelgood’ hormones prolactin and oxytocin and in many cases this triggers ovulation.

This led him and his colleagues to believe that in the past, ovulation was always triggered by an orgasm.

Dr Mihaela Pavlicev of the Centre for Prevention of Preterm Birth at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, in the US, who was also involved in the research said: ‘We think the hormonal surge characterises a trait that we know as female orgasm in humans. This insight enabled us to trace the evolution of the trait across species.

‘[Similar] traits in different species are often difficult to identify, as they can change substantially in the course of evolution.’ Other scientists have come up with other controversial explanations as to why women have orgasms when they perform no function.

One of the most obvious is that they simply encourage them to have more sex, and reproduce, as it is so enjoyable.

Another theory is that they create a stronger bond between the woman and the man, making it more likely they will stay together and have more children.

Finally, some scientists claim it is down to the ‘mate-choice’ hypothesis whereby females chose a mate on the basis of sexual satisfaction. Theoretically, a male which gives them a better orgasm has stronger sperm and will help her to produce more offspring. The Archive of Sexual Behaviour also found in a study that women who pretended to orgasm did so as part of a strategy of mate retention.

The study found women who thought that their partner was likely to cheat on them were more likely to fake it.

So

WHY DO SOME WOMEN STRUGGLE TO ORGASM DURING SEX?

Along with the evolution of a female’s monthly cycle, the clitoris was relocated from its ancestral position inside the copulatory canal, the study revealed.

This anatomical change made it less likely that the clitoris receives adequate stimulation during intercourse to lead to the reflex known in humans as an orgasm.

Dr Wagner explained: ‘For women to not have an orgasm during intercourse is natural – i.e. a natural result of our evolutionary history.

‘Orgasms are extracurricular and require special effort.

‘But the important point is that there is nothing wrong with the woman nor with her partner if intercourse is not sufficient to cause orgasm.
