It is difficult to describe an 'orgasm', just like it is hard to describe a yawn or sneeze! When someone receives sexual stimulation that is pleasurable, blood flows to the genital area (vasocongestion) and sexual tension builds up throughout the body (myotonia). All the senses and sexual thought (fantasy) work together to provide sexual stimulation. For a woman to climax, generally there needs to be direct stimulation of the clitoris. The genital area swells and the vagina becomes moist, the penis becomes erect. At the height of sexual stimulation orgasm occurs - females experience rhythmic contractions about 0.8 secs apart and gradually diminishing in intesity, pelvic throbbing and feelings of well being. Men will experience ejaculation from the penis and fairly rapid relaxation.
