Although achieving orgasm in both women and men should not be the end of sexual relations, since the important thing is to enjoy the sexual game itself, the reality is that it is a chimera sought by a large number of people.

What is orgasm?
Is a intense and pleasant sensation of discharge of the accumulated tension from the moment the excitation phase begins, from a series of intense muscle spasms concentrated in the pelvic region that are highly pleasant. Often, they are associated with other involuntary actions such as muscle contractions in other body areas and a feeling of general euphoria. The period after orgasm is known as refractory period and it is usually a relaxing experience thanks to the release of oxytocin, prolactin and endorphins.
Female orgasm is characterized by the acceleration of the heart rhythm; while blood pressure and breathing reach its highest level and the vagina, the uterus, the anus and the pelvic muscles contract between five and ten times at intervals of less than a second. Some women may feel orgasm all over their body and even have multiple orgasms.
Characteristics of female orgasm
There are very few women who reach orgasm only with intercourse, this is because in Most of the intercourse postures do not stimulate the clitoris, which is that part of the key female anatomy for women to reach ecstasy.
For many women, preliminaries are often key to reaching orgasm since many women need more stimulation than men to reach climax.
In fact, most women, between 70 and 80 percent, according to several studies, need direct clitoral stimulation that can be both manual and oral to reach orgasm. Although its indirect stimulation through penetration can also cause it. This is because the glans of the clitoris has thousands of nerve endings, in fact it is the most sensitive area of the human body. The Clitoris is homologous to the penis, so that both organs harbor similar capacity to produce pleasure.
According to studies by sexologists Masters and Johnson, all women are potentially multiorgasmic, they affirmed that “the woman is able to return to orgasm immediately after an orgasmic experience, if it is stimulated again before the tensions fall from the plateau phase of response levels. ” This is because the refractory period works differently from men; Classically, this period is related to sexuality and male orgasm, it would be the time it takes to return to ejaculate after a previous ejaculation. Women before entering this period may come to link one orgasm with another.
Also, although it is usually more difficult for a woman to reach orgasm, but when she arrives, the ecstasy is more prolonged. According to several studies, women usually double the time of men.
Anatomy of the reproductive system and sexual organs
Vaginal orgasm versus clitoral orgasm
Although many researchers believe that it makes no sense to differentiate between different types of orgasms, this is usually divided into two categories, the clitoral orgasm and vaginal orgasm. The distinction comes from Freud and his psychoanalytic theory; It was he who began to refer to vaginal orgasm, separated from clitoral orgasm. The clitoral orgasm defined it as a purely adolescent phenomenon and that the mature woman had to overcome and tend towards vaginal orgasms, that is, without any clitoral stimulation. Freud did not contribute any scientific evidence to this statement but its repercussions last until today
Until the Kinsey study, no criticism of this statement was made. Through interviewing a large number of women, he discovered that most of them did not experience vaginal orgasms, this discovery was supported by further studies by Masters and Johnson and Shere Hite.
In 2005, the urologist Helen O'Conell suggested that the clitoral tissue extended along the anterior wall of the vagina, demonstrating that vaginal and clitoral orgasms have a common origin.
It has also been proven that some women are able to reach orgasm through caresses in the breasts and nipples, with the stimulation of the nipples. This stimulation activates an area of the brain known as the genital sensory cortex, which is the same region that is activated by touching the clitoris, vagina and cervix, which means that women's brains appear to process nipple stimulation and of the female genital area in the same way.
How to increase female orgasm
To increase the intensity of female orgasm, some techniques such as multiple stimulations (for example, of the clitoris and the breasts at the same time). A staging of the sexual act as a game can also be very effective, for example role-playing games in which the participants assume active, passive or imaginary roles.
One way to increase the intensity of the climax is with the use of tantra-based practices, it consists of techniques for interrupting intercourse and general stimulation when an advanced level of excitation combined with breathing techniques has already been achieved. In this way, orgasm will become an experience of another level.
