Because when your sexual chakras are fully activated, you are your most alive and your creativity blooms!”

  2. There’s Help For Women Who Can’t Achieve Orgasm

    “Only 10 percent of women easily climax. Most women are in the remaining 80 to 90 percent. I see many women in my practice who feel relief just to know they are ‘normal’ when they have trouble climaxing with just vaginal sex but can climax with direct clitoral stimulation. It’s unfortunate that many women think they are not normal if they cannot climax solely through vaginal intercourse. Most women can not! It is important to relax and know that you are normal.”

  5. I’m A Sex Therapist & This Is Exactly What I Do To Have An Orgasm With My Husband Every Single Time

    “One of the biggest steps I took personally was realizing that my orgasm is just as valuable and important as my partner’s. I tell myself that I’m a generous partner, and I deserve to have a partner who is equally generous. I’ve also gotten fired up about the ‘orgasm gap’—the term for how many more orgasms men have than women, on average. Whenever I feel discomfort about receiving, I remind myself that I deserve pleasure too, and that my pleasure is part of a broader revolution happening around female pleasure.”

  6. Orgasmic Disorder

    “Problems reaching orgasm are fairly common among women. About 3 out of 4 women say they can’t orgasm through vaginal penetration alone. But there is a difference between an occasional issue and a more persistent problem—female orgasmic disorder, or FOD.
    What makes the problem rise to the level of FOD? There are specific criteria for diagnosing the disorder in women:
    – A woman will rarely—or never—be able to reach orgasm, even when she is sexually aroused
    – These symptoms last for six months or more
    – The problem causes significant distress and problems in her relationships
    – Orgasm difficulties are not exclusively caused by another medical condition or medication
    The problem affects a sizable number of women. In the largest US study of female sexual dysfunction, including responses from over 30,000 women, the prevalence of FOD was approximately 21%.”

  8. Yes, ‘Pee-Gasms’ Happen And It’s Completely Natural

    “While this practice may give women pleasure, it’s actually not a great idea in the long run, [Sex therapist, Janet] Brito told Healthline. ‘It is not healthy to hold your urine in to have an orgasm,’ Brito said. ‘Peeing is a natural human function and a way for our kidneys to filter waste. Holding in your pee may lead to urinary tract infections or kidney problems.’ This is because delaying urination also delays the sterilization of the urinary tract, as ascending bacteria is not flushed out quickly enough. These bacteria can get into the sterile bladder, causing all sorts of kidney discomfort and dysfunction.”
