Hello,

Welcome to just answer,

Orgasm is the peak of the plateau phase of the sexual response cycle, characterized by an intense sensation of pleasure. During this there is muscular spasms in multiple areas of the body, a general euphoric sensation and, frequently, body movements and vocalizations are expressed. If someone is havig an orgasm she will known that she is having an orgasm. Regular difficulty reaching orgasm after ample sexual stimulation is known as Anorgasmia and it can lead to personal distress. This is much more common in women than men.

Thanks
