The clitoris and the orgasm are God’s gift to women. The clitoris exists for no other purpose other than to give pleasure to women. You could say it is what makes life worth living. It is ultimate bliss and nothing else could matter in the moments of an orgasm. There is no greater pleasure on earth than the pleasure derived from the clitoris. No two orgasms are ever the same, always delivering an abundance of synapses through the nerve endings throughout her entire body. She is so sensitive in those moments and in her zone. Unless she invites you to touch her, no man should ever dare to break her away from experiencing the ultimate pleasure.

Every man may experience an orgasm through his penis, but he will never ever know the feelings of the orgasms a woman has. He will never understand the heightened pleasures she can obtain - by herself - or with him. It seems when it comes to this mysterious body part, known as the glans clitoris, man is left in the dark. If a man can understand the clitoris, he can understand any woman. He will be the ultimate hero in her eyes. No amount of money matters if he can give her the greatest orgasmic pleasure on earth, stemming from her clitoris. The problem is, like women, no two clitoris’ are ever the same.

If women take the time to explore their bodies, they will discover many important aspects of their bodies, especially the many erogenous zones. When it comes to sex and foreplay, a great patient smart man will know what to do, but many men must learn or need to be taught how to be patient and told what to do. A woman who knows her orgasm knows she has no time for anything less. A woman who knows her body well enough might love to experience both a clitoral orgasm and a vaginal orgasm at the same time, often achieved with a penis and a stimulating vibrator. She will curl and shake and cry and not understand why.  She will reach unimaginable heights and sensations that she cannot explain. A woman who knows what she wants will tell her man exactly what she needs and what she wants. She expects nothing less. A woman who can master her orgasm will reach a place that many women only dream of, and that no man could ever know or imagine.

Orgasms can stem from the clitoris, the G-spot, the A-spot, the deep spot, the U-spot, the vagina, the breast, the skin, or even from oral pleasure. Depending on how far two partners are willing to go and how patient they are with each other - especially men - women are full of erogenous zones. Take your time to understand romance. Take time to understand her body. She will be worth every desire if you treat her like the delicacy she is. If you do things just right, she’ll never let you out of her sight.

The Truth About Orgasms

In the 1950s Alfred Kinsey, the first scientist to study human sexuality in detail, once likened the orgasm to, “to the crescendo, climax, and sudden stillness achieved by an orchestra of human emotions… an explosion of tensions, and to sneezing.” That definition has since boiled down to “something that is awesome.”

Women can have two different kinds of orgasm: Clitoral and Vaginal. Their sensations different because different sets of nerves are involved with each part.

The clitoris has more than 8,000 nerves while the penis only has around 4,000.

An estimated 24% to 37% of women can’t climax.


Nucleus Accumbens
controls the release of dopamine

Ventral Tegmental Aerea
actually releases the dopamine

Pituitary Gland
releases beta-endorphins (which decrease pain), oxytocin (which increases feelings of trust), and vasopressin (which increases bonding)

controls muscle function

regulates emotions

Lateral Orbitofrontal Complex
the brain’s home for reason and behavior control, shuts down entirely

No one is sure why we have orgasms
Scientists often believe it is a by-product of evolution
like the male nipple
Speaking of nipples, some people can orgasm from being touched there… people have also reported actually feeling orgasms in other parts of their bodies, including their feet and hands.
… even stranger, others have had orgasms in limbs that aren’t there anymore. (There are all called non-genital orgasms)

And if that wasn’t weird enough… if the sacral nerves in the spinal cord are oxygenated and electrically stimulated, then, in theory.

Dead people can orgasm.

Estimates state that men ejaculate at least 14 gallons of sperm over a lifetime.

Sarah Carmen suffers from Permanent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (which increases blood flow to sex organs).

The most female orgasms recorded by doctors were 134 within a single hour.

Though not all orgasms seem great…
When Queen bees mate with a lucky male drone, the male’s genitals snap off and explode during orgasm (these act as a plug so no other drone can mate with the queen).

On an animal-related note
Bonobos and possibly dolphins have sex for pleasure like us.

And lastly, a pig’s orgasm lasts for 30 minutes.
