Watching porn would never tell you anything about orgasm. There are many such interesting facts which you would find really interesting and worth knowing. Here are the best 10 of interesting facts about orgasm:

10. Time Required and Frequency of Having Orgasm:

In more than 70% of females, orgasms are the result of direct clitoral stimulation instead of vaginal stimulations. A woman would need about 20 minutes of clitoral or G-spot stimulation to attain the peak of arousal. Also, while women can enjoy it multiple times in period of half an hour, men mostly need interval of several minutes to an hour to get back and attain the aroused state again. Good for women, no?

The level of frenzy experienced during orgasm is capable of inducing a heart attack out of ecstasy. Yeah, that’s true. But, it’s rare. Very rare. So, don’t freak out! It is really very rare to hear such a case, but there have been quite a few when women were reported to have fainted after experiencing a powerful nerve-breaking orgasm.

8. Duration Varies in Both Sexes:

The duration of orgasm varies for both males and females. For females, the average orgasm lasts between six and 10 seconds. In a lady is lucky, it can last for as long as 20 seconds.

7. Substance Use, Drinking, Smoking Destroys Your Orgasm:

While orgasm is like an unmatchable fit of pleasure, about 24 to 37 percent of women, who often indulge in smoking, substance use, drinking, or medications, lose their ability to reach the climax and don’t experience orgasm for the rest of their lives. In men, it’s somewhat the same, but less frequent. So, if you’ve been having trouble in that respect, stop smoking pot, drinking alcohol and all such things for a week and see the difference.

6. Physical & Psychological Benefits:

Researchers have claimed in their studies that people, who often attain orgasm, reportedly experience little or no headaches. They are also known to have less sensitivity to pain in general. Even orgasm attained through masturbation can relieve menstrual cramps, and help you alleviate stress when you are tense. Surge in oxytocin and dopamine post orgasm is believed to be the possible cause behind these physical and psychological after-effects.

5. Orgasm and Ejaculation can be different:

Ejaculation is an anatomical term which refers to the mechanism of ejaculating, but orgasm is a subjective experience attained at the moment of ejaculation. It is possible that you ejaculate, but don’t experience orgasm. In case of men, it’s common to ejaculate post orgasm. Almost every man would experience that. But orgasm, well, that doesn’t happen every time.

3. Men have G-Spot too:

Everyone knows that researchers have spent a great deal of time on the mystical G-spot. They say that women have G-Spot, and if a man could hit it, the orgasm for a female can be earth shattering. It’s indeed hard to spot it inside the vagina. It was known to be present in women previously but now, researchers claim that men too have the same potential of attaining that blasting ecstasy. According to Dr. Niederberger, in males it’s called the frenulum, which is a group of extremely sensitized nerves that lies right under the head of the penis. You better start looking for it now.

2. Orgasm Without Genital Stimulation Possible:

Although, it’ll be hard to find such cases, but scientists have established the validity of our mind’s power to recreate orgasm from previous memories or through its fancies without stimulating genitals physically. Some women reportedly experienced orgasm while getting a massage or some physical therapy. After all, erection is all about flood of blood into the genitals and a massage can do that too.
