Editor’s note: A woman’s orga_sm seems like a difficult subject to grasp. Not only is it confusing for men, even some women have a tough time cracking the O-word. We hereby explore some of the myths and urban legends around the taboo topic that add to existing misconceptions.
Myth 1: Intercourse is the key to a woman coming
Only one-third of women can orga_sm through interc_ourse alone.
Not really. In fact, some studies suggest that only one-third of women can orga_sm through interc_ourse alone.
Most other women need manual or or_al stimulation to reach cli_max. If you’re trying to figure out what works for your partner, communicate with her.
Try out different positions and different ways of making love – take your time to know what works best.
Myth 2: She’s “frigid” if she does not cli_max
A woman’s orga_sm seems like a difficult subject to grasp. Not only is it confusing for men, even some women have a tough time cracking the O-word.
There could be different medical or psychological reasons behind a woman not being able to reach an org_asm. Scientists and doctors call this condition ‘anorga_smia’.
If a woman has difficulty coming or simply does not come, it does not mean she is ‘frigid’, or cold towards you.
Myth 3: It is the partner’s fault if she cannot orga_sm
There might be varied reasons for a woman not being able to reach an orga_sm – a position that does not work, an unmatched rhythm during se_x, insufficient foreplay, or even anorga_smia. But none of these should point the blame towards the partner.
Her pleasure is also her responsibility – a woman needs to communicate clearly what she likes and dislikes so her partner can cooperate.
Myth 4: No orga_sm = Bad se_x
A woman’s pleasure is also her responsibility – a woman needs to communicate clearly what she likes and dislikes.
As strange as it might sound, women also enjoy se_x that does not always end in an orga_sm.
For a lot of women, being intimate with their partners and exploring each other’s pleasure areas alone can be very satisfying.
Myth 5: Orga_sms are like in the movies
Female orga_sms are not easy. Not as easy as po_rn and Hollywood flicks make them appear.
Neither do all women have the most earth-shattering experience when they come. Some women have waves of less intense clim_axes, for example.
So, do not believe actors when it comes to finding out the truth about female org_asms.
Myth 6: Only women fake orga_sms

You are wrong. Men fake orga_sms too! That’s right. A quarter of the men surveyed for a recent study at the University of Kansas revealed that they had faked orga_sms too.
Myth 7: Women do not eja_culate
Oh yes, women can eja_culate too! They might ejacu_late white, milky fluid that looks a bit like se_men, or gush out floods of a clearer fluid.
Some women get these squirting orga_sms from intense penetration – it is associated with stimulation of the Gs_pot, a sensitive area on the front wall of the vag_ina.
And there is also an African love-making technique called Kunyaza that is supposed to ensure squi_rting orga_sms for women.
Have you heard a rumor about se_x and wonder if it’s true? Let us know and we’ll nail the facts or bust the myths!
