There are so many misconceptions about female orgasms making the rounds these days. You'd think after thousands of years of people having sex, people would know more about a woman's reproductive health and sexual response. Unfortunately erroneous claims and theories sometimes gain popularity, and before you know it they're passed off as fact.
