Orgasm. It’s one of those words that all of us have a general idea what the definition is (the peak of a sexual climax), but when’s the last time you really stopped to think about what’s actually happening when you have one?
As a woman, whenever you experience an orgasm, it’s the result of (usually) foreplay that has caused you to become so stimulated that blood rushes to your vaginal area, including your clitoris (which literally has thousands of nerve endings in it). The more turned on you become, the more blood circulation increases and the more your natural lubricants increase.
If you’re not (physically or mentally) interrupted and the stimulation continues, there is a build-up of tension in your nerves and muscles as it relates to your genitals, pelvis, buttocks, and even your thighs. They all release at once, and that? That is an orgasm. (Anyone need a drink now?)
Now that the specifics of an orgasm have been broken down, we figured we’d provide a few more FYIs on it. Look at this as a quickie fact sheet that can keep you (and yours) in the loop of what you should — and shouldn't —do if you want to have as many “Big Os” as possible. (And really, who doesn’t?!)
