For a long time there has been much debate as to whether or not there is a vaginal orgasm or if it is just a mistaken clitoral orgasm. It’s easy to see why this matter was difficult to settle; as I’m sure most woman know from experience, once stuff starts feeling good at your vulva, it can be hard for some peopel to distinguish one good feeling from another or for male professionals to determine which nerves are being activated and how.
Dr Reuben (M.D.), in his 1999 book “Everything you always wanted to know about sex”, dismissed this debate stating that there is no difference between a clitoral or vaginal orgasm. He said that an orgasm cannot happen without the clitoris participating in some way. Since the clitoris has nerves that descend into the vagina, and the vagina, labia and clitoris are all connected, the clitoris usually does get stimulation during sex. Even during penetration, the labia are pulled downward, which stimulates the clitoris. Because everything is so interconnected and so many parts get stimulated at once, Dr Reuben says that it is impossible to say that one structure or another is depended on for orgasm.
Studies have even been done, measuring the clitoris’ response to vaginal stimulation. When pressure was applied to the lower third of the vagina, simulating penetration, blood rushed into the clitoris, sensitizing it for orgasm.
So, with this information under my belt, I have to assume that what websites are referring to when they talk about “vaginal orgasms” are actually “G-spot” orgasms. I could write a whole other article on this neat little area in a woman’s vagina, but that will have to be another time.
The G spot orgasm does exist, though it can be difficult to achieve. When this area is stimulated, everything in a woman’s body that is involved in orgasm is sensitized and the orgasmic reflexes are accelerated. For some women, stimulation of this area can make all the difference between having an orgasm or not!
