Whatever you call it — climaxing, cumming, or the big O — when it is an orgasm, it’s all about your pleasure.
You’re dissolved in ecstasy. The world pauses as pleasure hits you from all directions — washing away stress from inside out. And you come out feeling refreshed and satisfied, happy that you visited that wonderland.
But there are some surprising health benefits to having multiple orgasms, *real* benefits you may not have heard of.
Today’s article will take you deeper into that melting world of tingling ecstasy. You’ll learn more about orgasms and its health benefits — how it can help you combat your sexual health problems, and how it’s the world’s best solution to relieving stress.
But even more than that, we’ll talk about how to ‘get there’ faster and what you can try if you’ve been lacking behind in this department.
But first things first, what’s an orgasm, really?
What Is An Orgasm?
In simple terms — an orgasm is the peak of sexual pleasure. And you orgasm when your genitals and erogenous zones are expertly stimulated.
But what happens in your body during orgasm?
That feeling of vibration is not a mirage… your body actually vibrates with pleasure. The muscles from your vagina to your whole body tingles with involuntary and repeated rhythmic contractions.
Your breathing and heart rate will usually increase to keep up with the rush you’re feeling. And before you know, the built-up sexual tension is released and you slowly get back to earth again.
Are there really any health benefits to orgasming? Yes, and they’re awesome:
Health Benefits Of Orgasms
- The best pain med, ever: when you orgasm, your body releases a literal flood of pain-fighting hormones called endorphins. So the next time you’re in a bind and need a quick release from pain, try to visit that wonderland. Nobody ever regretted going there.
- Strengthen your relationship with your partner: Orgasms help you form deeper connections with your partner. Yes, it’s true. That need to ‘cuddle after cumming’ is a result of the big O — both you and your partner will feel a greater desire to cuddle-up and just dissolve in love. This happens because orgasming makes the body release oxytocin into the bloodstream. This hormone is also known as the connection hormone.
- Orgasms help reduce stress and anxiety levels: Remember oxytocin, the connection hormone? Yup, it has another surprising benefit as well. Oxytocin fights the stress-causing hormone, cortisol. Which is why many women who experience frequent orgasms report they also have less fatigue and more energy afterwards.
- Maintain your pelvic health: Whenever you orgasm, you unconsciously exercise your pelvic muscles. And by doing that, you reduce your risk of incontinence — loss of bladder control.
Other benefits of orgasming well and often include: improved intimacy, happiness, self-esteem, and fewer breakouts.
Amazing as these benefits of orgasming are, there are women that struggle to get ‘there.’ It’s as hard as ever, and sometimes you get there and most times you don’t.
That’s why we’ve researched and included some natural remedies for improved orgasms. Add them to your personal routine and improve your sexual health.
Natural Remedies For Improved Orgasms
Adequate Hydration: The body responds in weird ways when it is not getting enough water. And some of the signs that you need to drink more are fatigue and vaginal dryness. Lack of hydration can also interrupt the normal pH balance in and around the vagina, making it harder for you to get excited. So get into the habit of drinking more. How much is okay for you? Your doctor will tell you.
Drinking more water may be harder at first, but once you start to see the benefit — once you start to orgasm and squirt more often — you’ll wonder how you survived without all that water!
- Kegels: Kegels are contraction exercises for your pelvic floor muscles. Your pelvic floor muscles support your uterus, bladder, urethra, bowels, and your vagina. These muscles naturally grow weaker due to aging, childbirth, and menopause. So you’ve got to use Kegel exercises to keep them firm. Kegels also helps to improve orgasms and arousal.
- Herbal Supplements: Some proven natural supplements help to improve orgasms. They usually include potent herbs like maca root, betel nut, ginseng, Shatavari, and ashwagandha.
- A Healthy Diet Can Help: Foods and fruits rich in arginine help to improve sexual health. Some of those foods include eggs and nuts, and fruits like pomegranates.(1)
- Foreplay: Studies(2) show that foreplay enhances arousal and the stimulation of the clitoris. So take it slow and steady. Build up the intensity and desire. Doing that will make it easier for you to orgasm.
Common Questions About Orgasm
There's a lot we believe about orgasm that simply isn’t true. The reason for that is because there’s quite a few misconceptions floating around the internet.
So here are some common questions about orgasm with our answers:
Q: Why Can’t I Orgasm During Sex?
A: Not being able to orgasm during sex is called anorgasmia. Anorgasmia means less intense, delayed, absent, or infrequent orgasms. And it can also be caused by medical conditions, lifestyle factors and intimacy issues.
Q: Is It Okay To Orgasm More Than Once?
A: Yes. Most women can achieve many orgasms during sex. It is not something to be shy or apologetic about.
Common Misconceptions About Orgasms
Let’s go ahead and debunk some of them:
Myth #1: Only Penetrative Sex Leads To Orgasms
Fact: False. Forget Hollywood, a few thrusts and some fingering may not get you to the sweet spot. But while some women do orgasm during penetrative sex, most of us will orgasm during the stimulation of the clitoris.
Because of this misconception — that only penetrative sex can give you an orgasm — many women fake orgasms during intercourse. But there’s no reason to feel insecure or intimidated.
If penetrative sex alone does not get you to climax, discuss it with your partner. You can incorporate clitoral stimulation or some emotional intimacy to the process. Remember orgasming is a win-win for everyone involved — especially you.
Myth #2: Orgasm Should Happen At The Same Time For Both Partners
Fact: That’s simply not true. Many people who peddle these myths don’t know much about the female body.
Is it possible to reach the orgasmic wonderland with your partner at the same time? Yes, but it rarely happens. So don’t let that hold you back or make you feel self-conscious during intimacy.
Myth #3: The Ability To Orgasm Diminishes With Age
Fact: Biological/menopausal changes affect our sexual health — that much is true. But, even elderly women are still experiencing glorious orgasms. It may simply get shorter and less intense due to a decrease in clitoral perfusion and size, but it doesn’t mean you can’t orgasm at all.
Myth #4: Orgasms Are Easy To Achieve
Fact: False. There are a few things that can affect how easy you get there. Some of them include fatigue, stress, and individual differences.
Orgasm is always a different experience for everyone.
Myth #5: All Orgasms Feel The Same
Fact: False. Not all orgasms are loud and dramatic. Every woman’s orgasmic experience is unique. You should not use another person’s experience as a benchmark. Discover your own unique way of orgasming and embrace it.
Putting it All Together
Orgasms and sexual responses in general, are unique to each individual. But the pleasure, release, and satisfaction are universal.
