Why some women don't orgasm during sex



  • 1 The vaginal walls contain few nerve endings

    Because the vaginal walls of women contain relatively few nerve endings than that of the clitoris, many women don't get enough stimulation during sex to orgasm. 

  • 2 No direct clitoral stimulation

    According to some experts, orgasms can happen easily when the clitoris is stimulated as it has highly sensitive nerve endings. Sex partners are thus encouraged to help the female get clitoral stimulation. See why men lose interest in sex after ejaculation.

  • 3 They don't feel connected

    For most women, a certain level of connection and intimacy is required for them to orgasm. If that level of connection and intimacy isn't present with their current partner, they might not orgasm during sex.

  • 4 They don't have true emotions

    According to some psychologists, women only orgasm when they have true emotions towards the person they are having sex with. If the women aren't really into their partners, they might not orgasm during sex. See also why sex decreases after marriage.

  • 5 Women require foreplay

    Most women need around 20 minutes of foreplay before they can reach a state where they will be likely to orgasm. Hasty foreplay or even the absence of it might prevent orgasms. See also why men think about sex too much.

  • 6 Believing that sex is shameful

    Women who didn't get any sex education and those who were taught that sex is embarrassing might have a problem with orgasming. Having an understanding partner can help those women overcome this problem.

  • 7 Women need to learn how to orgasm

    According to experts, women aren't as orgasm ready as men. Women thus need to learn how to orgasm. A perfectly normal woman can take some time before she can reach that state and thus orgasm doesn't have to happen in the first few sexual encounters.

  • 8 It depends on their period

    Women become more orgasmic during certain periods of the month. This might differ from a woman to another. It's thus normal for a woman to have difficulty orgasming during certain phases of their period. See also what do women find attractive in men.

  • 9 The ability to orgasm increases with age

    According to experts, the woman's ability to orgasm increases with age. It might thus be harder for a woman to orgasm in her 20s than in her 30s, for example.

  • 10 Women require a romantic setting

    For women to get turned on, they require a romantic setting unlike men who just need a place to have sex. Many men rush to have sex, thus depriving women from this romantic setting required for orgasming. See also do women care about looks.

  • 11 Every woman is different

    Every woman is different than the other. If the woman's sexual partner doesn't quite understand how the woman can reach climax, an orgasm might not happen.

  • 12 The relationship is stressful

    According to psychologists, if the relationship is stressful, if the woman is not satisfied with it or if she is not happy with the relationship, she might have problems orgasming.

  • 13 Women are less likely to orgasm than men

    According to a study, men are 85.1% likely to orgasm, while women are only 62.9% likely to orgasm during intercourse.

  • 14 Women need a different type of stimulation

    According to experts, most of the go-to penile-vaginal positions don't provide enough stimulation to the woman's clitoris, and as a result, orgasm hardly happens.
