An orgasm is a natural response to heightened sexual arousal. According to research, the female orgasm can last between 10 and 30 seconds depending on its intensity and number of contractions. These contractions can be finished within four seconds or last up to fifteen seconds. According to research, the contractions of an orgasm occur at intervals of 0.8 seconds. After a woman has become sexually aroused, the muscles in her pelvic area as well as those throughout her body may start to contract.
In order for a woman to experience orgasm during intercourse, her clitoris must be stimulated. Just like the penis, the clitoris is filled with blood and becomes erect when you are sexually aroused. The clitoral orgasm is more intense and more similar to the male orgasm; whereas the vaginal orgasm is more feminine in nature, more wavelike and can last for a long time and then repeat as research has confirmed. A woman can have a series of vaginal orgasms, but usually only one or two clitoral orgasms.
A Woman Having An Orgasm
Another study found that when a woman’s breasts are stimulated during foreplay and intercourse or just the simple act of having her breasts fondled, she may experience mild to intense orgasms. It takes many women far longer than men to become fully aroused – as long as a half-hour in many cases.
California sexologists William Hartman and Marilyn Fithian monitored over 20,000 orgasms and found that it takes an average of twenty minutes for women to reach orgasm in the laboratory. “For many women, it can take up to a half-hour or more of sustained stimulation to move into orgasmic range.”
Another study found that approximately 10% of women never experience orgasm.
“The ability to have an orgasm may change with a woman’s hormones or level of stress,” according to The Clitoral Truth by Rebecca Chalker.
