For a woman, having an orgasm can be like finding an amazing deal on a shopping trip — you try to get one every time but, unfortunately not every experience produces the same result. When you do reach your climax or find that 50 percent off deal, however, all of the problems of the world seem to melt away. You probably already know how amazing it can feel to climax, but have you ever wondered what happens to your body as your orgasm?
According toWomen's Health, only 25 percent of women report always reaching orgasm during sex with their partner. And when you consider how amazing orgasms are and that over 90 percent of men reach orgasm every time, you realize just how wrong that statistic is on so many levels.
Besides the mind-blowing, toe-curling pleasure that keeps you coming back for more, what's going on inside of your body during your orgasm? You may not realize it — or care while you're getting busy — but there are plenty of things happening. As you become aroused, your heart rate and breathing increase, your nipples become erect, and your genitals will become engorged with blood, according to Cosmopolitan. The sensations become more intense until you (hopefully) climax. And when that happens, your heart, your brain, and even your eyes respond.
So if you needed a reason to get down and dirty with your partner tonight, you can have fun trying to have an orgasm. And when you do, try to observe just how many of these things happen to you.
