Has Science Finally Explained the Female Orgasm?
To the average Joe, the female orgasm might be one of the last unexplained mysteries of medical science. At least, until recently, when Wired released a fact-packed video explaining the female orgasm.
This video includes some fascinating statistics, like the fact that there are more than 8000 nerve endings in the clitoris, and that 70 percent of women need direct clitoral stimulation in order to climax. On the other hand, 20 percent of women say they’ve climaxed from kissing alone, which is a good reminder of just why that female orgasm is so mysterious in the first place.
One fact not addressed in the video, however, is the high rate of women who have trouble achieving orgasm (30 percent), and the fact that a significant number of women (10 percent) say they’re completely unable to climax at all.
When Nature Falls Short
With the improved understanding of how women’s orgasms work, medical science has also been able to come up with solutions for those women who struggle with sexual satisfaction.
For example, the O-Shot™ is a simple in-office injection that uses platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) to rejuvenate vaginal tissue around the clitoris and in the upper vagina. G-spot enhancement, another intravaginal shot, delivers a dermal filler to this raised area to allow for easier location and stimulation of the G-spot by both partners during sex.
In other instances, women report a sensation of a “wide vagina” and a lack of frictional contact that has come to be expected with sexual intimacy and arousal. However, science has provided an increased understanding of the complex interaction of the clitoral complex with the vagina so that direct stimulation of the glans clitoris alone may not be the sole source of orgasm. Treatment of the wide vagina with vaginal rejuvenation may help to restore the ability to achieve a vaginal orgasm via a reduction in the vaginal caliber.
We may never fully understand the complex emotional and physical components that all need to work properly together in order to culminate in the female orgasm. But we at least know enough that we can provide genital rejuvenation treatments for those women who feel frustrated by their inability to climax, and help them enjoy their sex life more fully.
