Most women don’t climax from penetration and there are a lot of questions surrounding the female orgasm. Even people with a vagina may not fully understand what goes into their ability to climax. Unfortunately, plenty of myths have circulated around the female orgasm, making it even harder for women and their partners to understand how and when it happens.
“With the male orgasm, it’s pretty obvious what’s going on — and there’s something to see afterward,” Dr. Lauren Streicher, a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and creator of the podcast Dr. Streicher’s Inside Information, tells Yahoo Life. “But the female orgasm is far more mysterious,” which “lends itself to all sorts of myths.”
Americans live in a male-centric society, Streicher says, and men may have misconceptions about the female orgasm. There’s also this to consider: “The female orgasm has been understudied and has been compared to the male orgasm for many years,” sex therapist Debra Laino tells Yahoo Life.
