More Female Orgasm Myths - By Gabrielle Moore

Let me explain two of the most common myths about the female orgasm.

Myth 1: There's nothing wrong with faking orgasms.

The majority of women sincerely believe this myth, but the truth is there is something very wrong with faking orgasms.

First, faking an orgasm is a form of lying to your partner. The woman is telling him that he has achieved something which she knows he has not. While that may make him happy or may make him feel good about himself temporarily, in the long run any lie will hurt the relationship because it will eventually be discovered. No matter how good our intentions lying during a relationship is never going to make it stronger.

Second, women who fake orgasms because their partners are not helping them reach climax are denying themselves pleasure wrongly. Faking orgasms not only interrupts a woman's enjoyment of the actual intercourse, it also prevents the man from trying other ways to please her. From his perspective, the sex is great.

The only way to have a mutually satisfying sexual and non-sexual relationship is through honesty. Although problems in the bedroom can be hard to discuss, bringing them up and working through them will strengthen the relationship and will make the sex better for both partners.

Myth 2: Some women just can't have orgasms.

While there are a percentage of women who have never had an orgasm, there is no evidence to suggest some women are incapable of having orgasms. There are two reasons why some women have not had orgasms in their lives. The first is that for whatever reason they have never masturbated. Masturbation is often a woman's first orgasm experience. The second is that they simply are not receiving the proper type of genital stimulation. Clitoral stimulation is needed by most women to have an orgasm. Without that stimulation, it most likely isn't going to happen.

There are some women who have psychological blocks when it comes to experiencing sexual pleasure. This may be the result of any number of past events in their lives, but even that does not mean they are physically incapable of having an orgasm. If they worked through those problems, they would be able to engage in orgasm-producing intercourse just like any other woman.
