If you don’t know if you’ve had an orgasm then chances are good that you have not had one. Since we talk about orgasms so much here at Gurl, I thought it might be a good idea to go over what it is actually like to have an orgasm. As the girls in Some Girls say, if you’ve had an orgasm, you would know. And if you haven’t, that’s okay! There really is no rush to have an orgasm, since you have your entire life to do so. But who really wants to wait that long? It’s okay to be curious about your body and what it can do, since it’s your body, and you should be able to do what you want with it.
Obviously, every girl is different, and no one orgasm is the same. But, there are certain ~sensations~ you get when having an orgasm which can be pretty hard to describe. Luckily for you, the girls on our boards are always willing to share their sex advice. Recently, user BunnCherr asked, “I was wondering...how does an orgasm feel like for you when masturbating (or having sex)?” It’s normal to be curious, and a ton of our users decided to share their experiences on what exactly an orgasm feels like to them. Check out their answers!
It Feels Like A Release Of PressureBrandNewEyes00 said, "Like a release...of pressure, is the best way I can explain it. But also feels very pleasurable, tingly, just really good." Many girls feel like it's a "release" since it sort of is! Your body is releasing a ton of chemicals, and you might feel them all at once, which can feel overwhelming, but once you get used to it, it's a good feeling! Image Source: iStock
It's A Good Way To Relieve StressNATUREGIRL said, "It's just about the best feeling ever, it can make your body tense up (I do) and it's a great way to relieve pressure and stress. Cherish you will just have to find out how your orgasm best suits you." She's right, it really is a great way to relieve pressure and stress. It's a good way to relax and get to know your body!

You Might Feel Out Of ControlShellyB said, "Melting and exploding at the same time? It's hard to describe. Also I have limited control of my body and muscles during orgasm, so I don't prefer to be in any position where falling is possible lol. I should add that it can be very enjoyable WITHOUT orgasm also, there is a plateau where it's really pleasant and nice but you aren't at orgasm, that plateau isn't bad either!! So don't put too much pressure on yourself!" You might be afraid to lose some control over yourself, but it is normal and it is okay. You might shake or even feel light headed, but this is normal! Be sure to drink water if you start feeling dizzy or dehydrated. Orgasming can take a lot out of you. Image Source: iStock
It's An intense Feeling For Your Entire Bodyamy261 said, "Like my knees are going to give way and a feeling of ecstasy goes all the way down my legs and all around my crotch area." For some girls, orgasming is almost debilitating. It can give you an intense feeling all over. Some girls even feel like they have to pee as they orgasm. These are all normal things! Your body is releasing all different kinds of chemicals like endorphins, so it's normal to feel like your knees are going to give way. Image Source: iStock
It Takes Time To Have OneNatureGirl said, "Don't try too hard you could you could make yourself sore and that just takes the pleasure out of it. I have seen it happen to other girls they tried to hard and put to much pressure on themselves .You will get there in the end and it will be worth waiting for.. Hope all works out well for you. BTW I have only orgasmed by masturbation not sex." Listen, it can take time to have your first orgasm, and if you think about it too much, you might freak yourself out and not be able to actually have one. An orgasm has a lot to do with the mind in addition to the body. You want to be sure that you're both physically and emotionally ready to have one! Image Source: iStock
You'll Know When You Have Onemandakim said, "It's really hard to explain how it feels but trust me, you'll know when you have one. It'll be really obvious (to you and anybody who's with you lol)" You won't really be able to imagine and orgasm until you experience it yourself. It might be intense or even scary, but it's not something you can really have described to you. If you want to have an orgasm, try masturbating yourself, or have your bae help you out!
