In her article, Jane Gerhard, depicts the patterns, discussions, and debates among specialists, clinicians, and women's activists in twentieth century, surrounding women’s orgasms. The main 'Myth of the Vaginal Orgasm' was a 1968 oeuvre composed by Anne Koedt. It contended against the regular affirmation that woman got delight solely through intercourse, and investigated woman' sexuality. She talks about the convictions about the orgasm that existed in the primary portion of the twentieth century. As of now, a "partner marriage" where a hetero couple would love and look after each other, and have intercourse, was viewed as the correct and "ordinary" thing to do. It was settled upon, amongst clinicians and sexologists, that intercourse was
Another key factor is society’s acceptance of masturbation for males, where it is seen to be deviant for females, since females are constructed as being the nurtures and therefore not promiscuous. Males feel comfortable in practising masturbation, thus knowing exactly what feels good for them and how to achieve this. Some females on the other hand find masturbation to be wrong or not lady like. Therefore, many women do not know how to achieve an orgasm. If a female is unable to bring herself to orgasm, it is very unlikely her partner will be able to as well, even if he knows how to bring other partners to climax.
However, sometimes the individual or couple may encounter problems in one or several areas of these events. According to Sewell (2005), sexual dysfunctions are characterized as impairment or a disturbance in one or more of the basic stages of the sexual response cycle. The four phases associated that can determine normality or a state of functioning is desire, arousal, orgasm and resolution (Sewell, 2005). When these phases are not interrupted the sexual response cycle varies from person to person and “even from time to time within persons” with no single, normal, or correct sexual response (Sewell, 2005). The first phase of the sexual response cycle, desire encompasses the want or libido to engage in sexual behavior. This phase is followed by arousal which progresses at varied rates between men and women with men progressing quicker than women. Women need foreplay and intimacy to become physically aroused. In this phase, physical signs of this are vaginal lubrication in women and penile erection in men, with accelerated breathing in both. Through physical touch and intercourse, arousal progress toward orgasm. The succession from the last phase of arousal to orgasm varies between men and women, while both experience muscle contractions, men are able to achieve this quicker with
The sexually realistic material discovered online regularly demonstrates brutality and the dehumanization of individuals in sexual scenes, particularly ladies. As indicated by specialists, express explicit entertainment can shape effective, yet false thoughts regarding solid connections and sexuality. It regularly needs points of interest of closeness and doesn't demonstrate the improvement of profound individual connections. Or maybe, it energizes sexual acts with no enthusiastic association or worry for the poise and regard of the other individual. Human sexuality includes passionate, otherworldly, and scholarly measurements and additionally physical. Inquire about has exhibited that these are required for a sound, satisfying
The author was trying to show the difference in how women react to different sexual responses and what can cause lack of sexual desires. It did figure out that women show lower and less frequent sexual motivation than men. Normally, single women almost never complain about being interested in sex, while women in relationships express more complaints based on the different sexual needs between the two partners. Low or no sexual desire is more likely to be the most common sexual problem in women. The study was conducted using sexual response models, which includes; linear model- which experienced sexual desires will happen in a sudden and unplanned way, and it is independent of the sexual arousal response, and Information process model- biological as well as mental factors can interfere with the activation of sexual systems. A large European study shown that women with low sexual desires were less satisfied about their current relationship.
They hate to rush the orgasm – unfortunately, these days sex has become more of a physical thing for most men. There is not so much pleasure and passion involved into the act. Men are eager to simply get it over with. And while for men this is a normal concept, women are not very fond of it. Once they start to see sex as a physical act and not an emotional one , their desire and passion goes away. So they appeal to faking their orgasm.
An example would be that some women experience orgasms through sexual fantasy or in an erotic dream. The second issue is although an induvial with SCI doesn’t have any sensation in the area below the waist, there are various erogenous zones in their upper body they can focus on. The third issue, is that orgasms have generally been defined by nondisabled people in their observations of other nondisabled people. Society defines that by; women experiencing orgasms the climactic sexual moment during clitoral, vaginal or anal stimulation; basically if your body doesn't let you do any or all of these things, apparently you can't have an orgasm. However, this is not true, orgasms are nothing more (or less) than a total body experience of intense pleasure; often preceded by a buildup of intense sexual and bodily tension, followed by a completely relaxing sensation in your body and/or
As far as questionnaires, these are the only procedural devices used in the study. The authors make it very clear as to what psychometric tests were used. They describe each one and its purpose. The tests used were the Toronto Alexithymia Scale, the Whiteley Index, the Hopkins
Based on a study by Erin Cooper of Temple University, approximately 60 percent of women have faked an orgasm during intercourse or oral sex (Livescience.com, 2011). Cooper’s results showed a majority of the women surveyed said they faked it due to their own fear of intimacy; they also reported faking orgasm, because they felt insecure about their sexual functioning, or because they want to get it over with (Livescience.com, 2011). Faking orgasms while in a relationship often damages the relationship in and out of the bedroom.
Using sex as a means to alleviate stressful circumstance by using the gratification feelings associated with sex or masturbation. Question number four “How often do you masturbate? How do you feel before, during, and after masturbation” assesses the frequency of masturbation and the feelings associated with the activity before, during, and after masturbation.

The individual may suffer adverse effects such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and the feeling of

Testosterone is correlated to dominance in women and men, researchers wanted to examine The person, whether male or female is playing the roles of bottom or top during the
The sexual topic that I chose to explore for my paper is female orgasm dysfunction (FSD), where many women, like myself, are unable to experience orgasm through vaginal intercourse. There are many factors that contribute to a woman’s inability, or infrequency to orgasm, such as biological, psychological, and emotional factors. Being that my personal experiment had to do with factors associated with personality such as openness to new experiences and shyness, I wanted to explore and learn about other causes that effect female orgasm. Therefore I chose to read three articles: Personal Factors that Contribute to or Impair Women’s Ability to Achieve Orgasm, Emotional Intelligence and its Association with Orgasmic Frequency in Women, and Are Orgasms
