What is An Orgasm?

Engaging in sexual activity mostly means trying to fulfill sexual pleasure. Orgasm ― as one of the perceptions of sexual satisfaction ― is the climax or sudden recurrence of sexual arousal accompanied by sensations of pleasures. In a simple way, orgasms is when you reach the peak of sexual excitement. Orgasm is also one of sexual responses besides desire, excitement, plateau, and resolution. Biologically speaking, orgasms occur when both sexes experience contractions of the muscle and blood vessels of the sexual organs, anals, and urethral sphincters (muscles that control the exit of urine).

One of American sex educator, Betty Dodson, did research and wrote a book about orgasms. Based on Dodson’s research, she defined different forms of orgasm into some categories:

  • Combination or Blended Orgasms: experiences different orgasmic and blended together
  • Multiple Orgasms: though it is pretty rare to happen, multiple orgasms is a series of orgasms over a short period of time
  • Pressure Orgasms: it arises from indirect stimulation or self-stimulation of applied pressure that is more common in children
  • Relaxation Orgasms: the kind of orgasms that comes from a deep relaxation during sexual stimulation
  • Tension Orgasms: it is a common form of orgasm when the body and muscles are tense from a direct sexual stimulation

Other researchers described other forms of orgasms and those are fantasy orgasms and G-spots orgasms. Fantasy orgasms are resulting from mental stimulation alone. G-spots orgasms are resulting from stimulation of the G-spot (the area one or two inches inside the vagina) during penetrative intercourse. Everyone experiences different kinds of orgasms even though some are more common. If you find any strange reaction or problems regarding orgasms, it is best to seek more information or consult with the professional.
