Having an orgasm probably isn’t something you talk about in an every day conversation, unless you’re hanging with your besties and you guys are very open with each other. Since it’s sort of a taboo subject, it makes sense that there are a lot of myths out there about orgasms. But at the same time, it’s something that is constantly on everyone’s minds, so… it also doesn’t really make sense.
There are a lot of false orgasm facts out there that I feel we need to address. You just shouldn’t walk around thinking these things, especially if you want to have a happy sex life. Here are 8 myths about orgasms that are definitely not true.
If You Don't Orgasm From Sex, You're Doing It WrongIf you can't seem to reach orgasm one night, that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you, your partner or what you guys were doing. There are a lot of different reasons we can't orgasm sometimes. Maybe you're over-thinking it. Maybe you're too stressed, tired or you don't feel good. Maybe you're just not turned on enough. Who knows? Whatever the reason, don't sweat it. This happens to everyone. Source: ShutterStock
It's Easier For Dudes To OrgasmTechnically, this isn't true. While it may seem like dudes orgasm faster, there are plenty of women out there who can orgasm just as quickly. Source: ShutterStock

There are some ladies out there who have never orgasmed from penetration, yet they orgasm just fine when masturbating or participating in oral sex or, I don't know, a bunch of different ways. It's a little harder to reach a vaginal orgasm and if you're not there yet sexually, don't worry about it. Do what works for you and don't worry about what works for others. Source: ShutterStock
Women Can Only Orgasm From Clitoral StimulationYes, there are two myths out there that completely contradict each other. Like I just said: there are some women out there who can have vaginal orgasms from penetration alone. While stimulating the clitoris is probably the easiest way to reach orgasm, it's not the only way. Source: ShutterStock
Sex Is Only Good When You OrgasmYes, having an orgasm is one of the ultimate goals of sex. But just because you didn't have a spectacular finish doesn't mean sex can't be fun anyway! Sex is also about being intimate with your partner. It can still feel good even if it doesn't exactly get you there. Source: ShutterStock
Only Women Fake OrgasmsA lot of people assume that only women can fake orgasms because when guys orgasm, uh, stuff comes out (very mature of me, right?). But that's not true! As scary as it sounds, there are dudes out there who also fake orgasms, they're just super tricky at hiding it. This is especially easy if guys are using condoms. Source: ShutterStock
Condoms Make It More Difficult To OrgasmFor the last time, this is not true! Condoms don't make it harder to achieve an orgasm. If a plain old condom isn't working for you,
