In 2015, the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health reported that only 46% of cisgender heterosexual women said that they always or nearly always had an orgasm when having intercourse, with only 6% of women reporting always having an orgasm. Nearly one in six (16%) women had an orgasm approximately half of the time and 38% of women had orgasms fairly infrequently at most.
So, why are so many women having sex without reaching completion? It’s partially because, for a long time, people didn’t even know that women could orgasm. Scientist Alfred Kinsey led a huge sexual survey in the 1940s that led to the demystification of the female orgasm. It was very comprehensive, and he highlighted some interesting factors that still influence how we think about women, sex, and how they can achieve orgasm as well.
His Kinsey Report found that, that 40 percent of the women surveyed got their first orgasm from masturbation and five percent from “wet dreams,” that 14 percent reported the phenomenon of multiple orgasms, and that women’s orgasmic abilities rise and rise before tapering off at age 55-60. Since then, the needle has moved a bit on education around the female orgasm, but not enough judging by the above statistics.

The clitoris is a hotbed of nerve endings that can easily heighten the sexual experience for a woman when stimulated properly. The clitoris is a very sensitive part of a woman’s anatomy. Having it touched, caressed, or stroked via direct or indirect stimulation (in other words, through fabric, or by touching the labia surrounding the clitoris) causes
