Orgasms are not one-size-fits-all. What works for one woman won't work for everyone and what worked for you with one partner might not work with another. Here's the scenario. And you may be too but there's a very good reason to never skimp on the foreplay:.
Struggling to reach orgasm on your own, or failing to hit the high notes when you're having sex with your partner? Not achieving the big 'O' is actually pretty common, and as many as one in three women apparently have trouble climaxing. According to a study from the Archives of Sexual Behavior that researched over 52, adults' sexual activity, an impressive 95 per cent of men reported they usually or always reach orgasm during sex, compared to just 65 per cent of women. So what is causing this orgasmic disparity and, more importantly, how can women up their come-quota? Coming is typically seen as the end-goal of sex for both parties.
Clearly, we don't need to convince you to have sex. It's hard-wired into our brains to propagate the species. And anyway, it feels pretty awesome.
