It’s not always easy for a woman to reach climax.
Often it depends on the mood, the setting and just the overall vibe.
But research has found that 10-15% of women aren’t able to orgasm at all.
The term for this is “anorgasmic”, although some ladies prefer pre-orgasmic.
There might be a number of reasons why a woman is unable to reach the big-O, from medication to birth control and stress.
Now Lux Alptraum, author of Faking It: The Lies Women Tell About Sex – And The Truths They Reveal, has explained her own journey.
She told how she went through a period of anorgasmia after changing her medication.
In an interview with Refinery29, she said: “Orgasm is something that’s most likely to happen when you’re relaxed.
“So if you’re dead set on ‘I’m going to make this f***ing happen,’ that’s not going to work.
“People who are anorgasmic are put in this vicious cycle where you can’t orgasm.
“So you feel broken, so you try to orgasm, but the more you try to orgasm, the more difficult it is to achieve.”
If you are concerned that you might be experiencing anorgasmic, it’s recommended to speak to a doctor or professional.
Sometimes it takes changing your birth control or regular prescriptions, but it’s best to get proper advice.
Lux added: “What I would tell someone who is anorgasmic and wants to have enjoyable sex is the same thing I’d say to someone who is orgasmic: think about how you like to be touched, think about what feels good, think about what you want out of sex.”
