Big_rabbitYou know a lot about orgasms; you know what they feel like, what gives you one and how to give one to your partner. Here are some things you don’t know about the big O.

  • On average men need two to ten minutes of stimulation to reach orgasm. Women need twenty minutes or more. Because of this foreplay plays an essential role in women reaching orgasm.
  • To make up for needing double the time to climax, women’s orgasms typically last twice as long as men’s.
  • The word ‘orgasm’ is derived from the Greek word ‘orgasmos’ which means “to swell as with moisture, be excited or eager.”
  • Contrary to popular belief, penis size does not affect a partner’s ability to reach orgasm.
  • The area of your brain that controls your orgasms overlaps with the area that controls pain.

  • In fact, in a study of headache sufferers 48% reported that orgasms cured their pain.
  • The vibrator was first marketed as a women’s health aide. It was used to cure headaches, depression and ‘female hysteria’.
  • Before the invention of the vibrator women lined up at their doctors’ offices for orgasms via manual stimulation.
  • The first vibrators were electric. This advancement came nine years before the electric vacuum cleaner and ten years before the electric iron.

  • Female ejaculation is not a myth. When stimulated properly most women are capable of ejaculating no more than a teaspoon of sweet tasting fluid.
  • Sleep ejaculation is common among men. Unlike conscious ejaculation, sleep ejaculation is trigger by pleasure created in the brain, not the body.
  • Orgasms are incredibly good for you! They boost your immune system, increase your longevity and reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer.
  • Men who have two or more orgasms a week live longer than men who don’t. The next time your man is in the mood remember, it’s for his health!
  • During an orgasm the portion of your brain that controls fear is shut off, allowing you to feel safe and secure enough to enjoy the moment. This is also why some people are able to sleep better after an orgasm.

  • An even luckier .06% of men and women can reach orgasm just by thinking about sex.
  • Over two thirds of all women have trouble reaching orgasm during intercourse. In contrast only one fourth of all men suffer are unable to regularly climax during sex.
  • Women who receive twenty minutes of foreplay will reach orgasm nine out of ten times.
