A Bigger Clitoris Means Better Orgasm: Study

Some women find an orgasm impossible to achieve, and there may be a physical reason for it.

Women and orgasm: the discussions go on and on. Orgasm is such a mystery in women and science is continually trying to figure it out.

Rather amazingly, up to 80% of women have trouble experiencing orgasm exclusively from vaginal intercourse. This means that almost all women need some kind of extra stimulation to reap any kind of pleasure-filled result, when having sex.

And to make matters more daunting, a study from 2014 published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that the size and place of a woman’s clitoris matters. Women blessed to be born with a larger clitoris placed closer to the vagina found it easier to achieve orgasm.

Size Matters

How did researchers study such an elusive thing? They used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology to scan the pelvic area of 30 women in their 30s. A third of these women reported trying to orgasm but never having achieved any results, and the rest had regular orgasmic experiences during sex, whether through clitoral stimulation or not.

The researchers measured the size and alignment of the women’s anatomy and found the discrepancies. The women who found it impossible to orgasm had a distance between their clitoris and their vaginal opening that was 5 to 6 mm longer than the other women, and they also had a smaller clitoris size, on average.

Why these things matter when it comes to piles of pleasure during sex is something that researchers can’t yet answer. The clitoris has so many nerve endings packed in a tiny space, and scientists are guessing that maybe women with a smaller clitoris have fewer nerve endings there.

Being Married

And other psychological factors come into play, when it comes to orgasm. It isn’t all in women’s heads but, naturally, things like attraction and levels of happiness in life matter too, when it comes to pleasure.

Statistics report that less than half of married women experience orgasm every time they have sex and only about 15 percent experience multiple orgasms.

But this doesn’t mean that you should never get married and that all is lost. Womensday.com reports that women actually find it easier and easier to orgasm as they age.

61% of women between the ages of 18 and 24 report attaining orgasm the last time they had sex, while 65% of women in their 30s do and that goes up to 70% when women reach their 40s and 50s.

Why do the number go up? It could be changes in hormones as you age, but it could also have to do with the increased confidence women experience as they get older, scientists say. As women gain more sexual experiencing and share this with a partner they can trust, the chances of experiencing an orgasm regularly are greater.
