Pelvic floor dysfunctions, organ positions, scar tissue, stress, and hormonal status are playing a major role in the “orgasmic capacity”. The information about the real anatomy of the clitoris and the myths about the G-spot is getting more attention. As well as the fact that there are more than three types of orgasm. There are probably as many types of orgasm as there are women.

When we experience an orgasm, many physiological, hormonal, neurological and chemical processes happen in our body. Believe it or not but the brain experiences as much activity during orgasm as it does during a neurological incident (e.g. epilepsy)! Such activity increases the oxygen and nutrient supply to the brain.

What is the clitoris?

The clitoris is a female genital organ. There is an exterior part that is visible and consists of a gland (like a penis) with the hood and is situated at the junction of the inner lips above the opening of the urethra.
