What is an orgasm?

“Women aren’t faking orgasms anymore, they’re hiding them.
‘I didn’t feel anything. Oh that? That was the hiccups’.”
–Diane Nichols


Orgasms, or sexual climaxes, arise when the sexually stimulated brain releases “feel good” chemicals while muscles contract in and around the genitals.

Male orgasms also typically include the discharge of semen, making them more explicit (and less fake-able) than a female’s climax.

Some people can also achieve multiple orgasms, but these are rare in males because the post-orgasm penis is hypersensitive—wanting to be petted about as much as a wet cat.
