Research suggests that one in four women will have problems reaching orgasm at some stage in their life. A further 25-35% may never have experienced orgasm.

Difficulty reaching orgasm during intercourse is the norm. In fact, an estimated 70% of women don't ever have penetrative orgasms.

If your problem is during penetration but you don't have difficulties with other forms of stimulation, then you may find that changing your sexual position will help. The common man-on-top position rarely provides adequate clitoral stimulation to trigger orgasm, but some women find that if they are on top then orgasm is easier. However, for some couples the way their bodies fit together means that it won't ever be possible without some extra stimulation from a finger or vibrator, which either partner can easily provide.

If you can't reach orgasm during any form of stimulation, particularly if you have never achieved orgasm, then the first thing you need to do is work out what's causing the problem.


The most common physical cause is a lack of adequate stimulation. Most women need direct clitoral stimulation in order to achieve orgasm. The second most common factor is tiredness or general illness. Our bodies need to be in general good health in order to enjoy sex.

Psychological causes

Many women experience a range of psychological problems that make orgasm elusive. The most common is known as "spectatoring". When an orgasm seems to be taking for ever, many women detach from what's happening and become orgasm watchers. Anxiety increases and rather than enjoying the moment, they're getting increasingly impatient with themselves.

Some women find they are easily distracted from what's going on, worrying about things to be done or worrying about how their body looks to their partner. Negative sexual messages from the past can leave a woman feeling uncomfortable about being sexually aroused or fearful of losing control. Relationship problems are also a major contributor to sexual dissatisfaction. If there is unresolved tension with your partner, then your physical relationship will inevitably suffer.
