A female orgasm is defined as the peak of sexual arousal that can send
a woman's whole body in a series of involuntary, pleasurable muscular
contractions. A woman's heart rate and blood pressure increases while
her breathing quickens as the release of endorphins into her blood stream
can cause her to feel flushed, giddy, warm or sleepy.
are chemicals released during orgasm, into one's spinal fluid that produce
calming, pleasurable feelings. They are also known to help control the
body's response to stress, determining one's mood.
Although there are many areas for sexual arousal, the clitoris is responsible
for sexual climaxing. All orgasms are really extensions of sensation from
this area. Penetration is not usually enough for a woman to have an orgasm.
The clitoris is not always stimulated sufficiently in the conventional
sexual positions, so couples need to utilize more creative positions to
better help a woman obtain an orgasm. Lovemaking involves knowing what
each partner needs to be satisfied. If there is no honesty by both partners
the trust and intimate connection will usually begin to fade.
Some women achieve orgasm through sexual fantasies. While the stimulation
is psychological the orgasm manifests itself physically. Letting go and
allowing oneself to fantasize and really block out any distractions can
help those who find it difficult to experience an orgasm.
Setting the mood is a great way for a woman to really relax and enjoy
being pleasured. Candles and slow romantic music may sound like a cliché,
but it can really create a more enticing atmosphere that can result in
achieving the type of intimacy needed for many women.
A female orgasm is different with every woman. There is not a set of
rules to follow when it comes to pleasing a woman. What feels good to
one woman may not appeal to another. Sexual intimacy happens when the
lovemaking is pleasing to both partners creating a harmony and closeness
and a sense of trust between two people.
