ASK THE DOCTOR - ‘I’m Unable to Achieve Orgasm’

QUESTION:
I am a 31-year-old married woman. I am unable to experience orgasm during intercourse. We have tried ‘everything’ but have not succeeded. Even a senior sexologist was of no help. Can you help us? - Ashwini



ANSWER:
Inability to reach orgasm is quite common amongst women. Probably, it is the result of age-old sexual repression of women, forced by religious and cultural beliefs. It either stems from your own deep rejection of your sexuality, or as a result of a moralistic upbringing. A woman is as capable of experiencing an orgasm as a man. All it needs is her true and complete acceptance of her sexuality, love for the partner, a relaxed atmosphere, complete privacy and an uninhibited passion. In such circumstances, one simply discovers the technique to reach to one’s orgasm.

You say that you have tried everything. In that case you need to look into your own inhibiting factors. If you find it difficult to see them all by yourself, you may take the help of a professional sex counsellor.
