Fun Friday Sex Fact – Women’s Orgasm

Elizabeth: What do you know about women’s orgasm? Hmmm, it’s a big question to answer.

I’m Elizabeth Wood with Beyond the Bedroom here today with another episode of Fun Friday Sex Facts. Yes, I’m going to be talking all about women’s orgasm and climax.

First thing that I think you should know is the average length of time for a woman to reach climax during self-stimulation, solo play, self-pleasuring is on average about 4 minutes and when we’re in partnered time, partnered love-making, partnered sex play, that length of time increases to on average between 10 and 20 minutes. Excuse me. Less than a third of all women reach climax during intercourse alone and that’s a really important fact, not just an interesting one, for both men and women to know because it’s actually less than a third and that’s perhaps why so many women fake their orgasm. One study has shown that the percentage is as high as 70% of all women have faked an orgasm, but there is a remedy.

If a partner spends more than 41 minutes during or 41 minutes of foreplay, the stats improve to improve 9 out of 10 happy, sexually satisfied women.

That 41 minute number is something I’m going to be talking about in another episode, but it’s really important: foreplay, foreplay, fondling, kissing, touching, squeezing before the act of intercourse alone. Women have 8,000 nerve endings in their clitoral network. That’s twice as many nerve endings as found in the male penis.

This is what I think is another interesting one: as women begin to climax, the size of their vagina decreases about 30% and what they report is that is potentially for a woman to feel more stimulation and more satisfaction during her climax. 30%… that’s pretty big.

Let’s see, I’m looking at my cheat sheet to make sure I don’t forget anything.

There have been reports of four different kinds of climax– a clitoral climax, orgasm reached through clitoral stimulation alone; a vaginal climax, which is basically g-spot climax; a combo or a blended that’s a mix of both of those two; and then the fourth one is multiple orgasms and multiple orgasms happen one after another. It’s actually not one orgasm during the love-making section and another one an hour later. Multiple orgasms happen one quickly right after the other.

Orgasms, like sneezes, are very hard, they’re impossible to stop once we’ve sort of fallen over into them and that’s because the orgasm and a sneeze is a physiological response to an event. I thought that was kind of interesting.

Oh! And then women who are prone to migraines actually are more likely to have more sex. Orgasms and climaxes reduce the sensitivity to that pain and they actually work faster than a painkiller and then I want you all to know that Masters and Johnson’s, in the 1970’s, recorded one of the longest orgasms for a woman, which was 24 seconds long. That’s pretty massive.

And then I read here just a while ago and I wanted to get this correct which is why I’m looking at my computer: doctors from the Center for Sexual and Marital Studies in California recorded one woman who enjoyed 134 orgasms during the course of an hour. That’s– I mean, that’s unbelievable. 134… I don’t know if it’s something I want to sign myself up for and those same doctors recorded that there were only 16 for men.

I thought those were pretty fun. So if you have more fun facts that you want to share with the audience about women’s orgasm, please leave a comment below and submit any that you think are really wild and crazy. It’s all about the fun. Thanks for watching. I’m Elizabeth Wood.
