I have heard everyone has different feeling orgasms. So, how can I be positive I’ve had one?
ChickRx expert Evelyn Resh, Certified Sexuality Counselor & Nurse-Midwife, says:
You’re very right. Not all orgasms are created equal. Even the same person can have very different feeling orgasms. Some are really mind-blowing. Others feel good, but are no big deal. The differences are related to how tired, scared, drunk, or high or turned-on we are in the first place.
What most women will say about their orgasms is that they feel themselves getting more and more turned-on and as this is happening, they get the sense that they’re moving in the direction of something that will end in a fantastic feeling in their bodies. Once they do orgasm, there’s a feeling of being flooded with amazing physical sensations. Sometimes, there will also be contractions in the pelvis or vagina. These are often rhythmic and make a great feeling even better. Eventually, when this fabulous feeling subsides, a woman will feel really content and calm.
But of course, this isn’t the exact same for everyone. All orgasms are different. What’s most important to remember about all this is that there is no “right way” to have an orgasm. Based on my experience, women know when they have had the big O. My guess is that if you’re not sure, you probably haven’t had one.
My number one suggestion is that if you aren’t sure if the feelings you’ve had are an orgasm, try masturbating. Being alone and able to totally relax will give you more of a chance to experiment. This will give you lots of information about how your body works and you’ll get to know your own orgasmic or non-orgasmic feelings a whole lot better.
