Women and Orgasm: Facts About the Female Climax
Orgasm in Women: What Happens Exactly?
When women do climax, "there are changes throughout the whole body, a head-to-toe kind of experience. A series of rhythmic contractions occur in the uterus, vagina, and pelvic floor muscles. The sexual tension caused by lovemaking or self-stimulation releases, and muscles throughout the body may contract. A feeling of warmth usually emanates from the pelvis and spreads throughout the entire body.
When the peak moment finally comes your muscle spasms will start, especially in the pelvis. This is a combination of the walls of your uterus, vagina, anus, and pelvic floor contacting, causing the waves of pleasure throughout your abdomen and the rest of your body.
Interestingly, scientists have found that the strength of your orgasms can be tied to the health of your pelvic floor muscles. The more toned your pelvic floor muscles are the better they contract during orgasm, adding to the pleasure you feel. By far the easiest way to strengthen these muscles is to start doing Kegel exercises, which involve lifting your pelvic floor upwards, holding the contraction for a few seconds, then relaxing and repeating.
Smart Kegel exercisers like KegelSmart register pelvic floor strength, guiding you through your exercises with gentle vibrations.

Depending on the strength of your climax it can last anywhere from a few seconds to a full minute.
The number of contractions also varies, but the normal range is between 1 and 12 contractions that each last about a second. And don’t think that sex and orgasm are an entirely body-based experience – your brain also gets in on the action, releasing chemicals like oxytocin (aka the cuddle hormone, which helps create intimacy) and dopamine (a reward chemical and natural pain-killer).

Remember that every orgasm is different, and every woman experiences her orgasms differently. However, having a better understanding of how your body (and mind) react to sexual stimulation can help you unlock the knowledge of what gets you there. Take time either alone or with your partner to figure out what you like and find your own rhythm – we all know that getting there is part of the fun!
How Women Achieve Orgasm
2. Plateau Sexual tension builds as a precursor to orgasm. The outer one-third of the vagina becomes particularly engorged with blood, creating what researchers refer to as the "orgasmic platform." Focus on sexual stimuli drowns out all other sensations. Heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration continue to increase.

The most common type is a "clitoral" orgasm.
Clitoral stimulation has been proved the surest route to orgasm. "I think that clitoral stimulation probably the closest analogue to male orgasm, where you get erectile tissue, there is release, and after release it is uncomfortable to continue for some women. My suggestion here if you want to continue this is where foreplay comes in. Give her some time to re energized and keep her emotionally in the mood.
