Female orgasms are tough. You never know what you're supposed to feel like. You never know when or when you don't have one. Is it really the explosions and the fireworks and all the screams you see on TV and read about in the books? Because for most women, their orgasms feel like a long trek, where you never seem to get to the top. No wonder that women are frustrated, annoyed, and hopeless about orgasms.
So, how do you tell?
Unfortunately, there is no standard answer to that. It is important to note that an orgasm is very personal and individualised. You can't always compare it to other orgasms and try to reach a consensus. But, don't worry, there are a few signs. So, let's take a look at them.
Tremor, Sigh, Astral Projection
The experience of an orgasm varies from woman to woman. It can even be different from orgasm to orgasm, in which it sometimes feels powerful, and in other days it just—-doesn't. But experts say you're always experiencing a change, and that's how you know it. Sometimes, experience may be the peak of sexual pleasure, but sometimes you may feel like you're releasing built-in pressure. And sometimes it's only recognisable by how different it feels when compared to everything else. Described as everything from tremors and little blips of pleasure to out-of-body experience, it can be hard to pin down what it means to have an orgasm intellectually. Maybe, sometimes, you just need to trust your body.
There are some physiological changes that your body will undergo when you have an orgasm. For example, the heart rate is changing- its rising. You have muscle contractions, either in your vaginal walls, butt, thighs, legs, or abdominal muscles. Your skin is flushed, which means that the skin over your face, neck, and chest is red and may feel hot to the touch. Also, after an orgasm, your genitals are likely to feel sensitive to stimulation. Chances are, you might not want to have any contact with your genitals for at least a few minutes until that feeling fades away.
Happy, Relaxed, Sleepy
When you orgasm, your brain is flooded with positive chemicals like oxytocin and dopamine. These hormones increase feelings of euphoria, bonding, compassion, and closeness. It makes you feel happy, at peace, incredibly relaxed, even sleepy. Studies even say they help you sleep better at night, once you get an orgasm before bed!
