Ah, the first orgasm. Some women get up close and comfortable with their pleasure at a young age, and can't place a finger on when it all began. But others remember their first big O as a momentous event that happened much later in life, after many years of wondering. Thanks a lot, sex ed.
For some reason, many of us see it as The End Goal and the whole point of having sex. This puts a huge amount of pressure on women to either climax which BTW is not the optimum atmosphere for actually coming or fake it so their partner doesn't feel bad or like they can't please them. Here, 11 women share the age at which they first had an orgasm. It ranges from very, very young to legit adulthood, proving that when it comes to orgasms, there is no 'normal'. At the hospital when I was staying for a couple weeks, a girl our age told us it felt good to rub a pillow 'down there' and I did it and My dad had this back massager that I discovered felt good in my pants. I eventually faked a neck injury so I could keep it.
At long last, the world is beginning to embrace the female orgasm. Women are singing about masturbation , scientists are studying what happens to women's brains when they orgasm , and the internet is full of advice on having better orgasms. Which is great—but all this talk can make you feel left out if you've never even had an orgasm yet. You're not alone, though.
Whether it happens intentionally or by accident, most women remember the first time they hit the orgasm jackpot. Further exploration led to a truly OMG moment, after which I became a big fan of early nights — no doubt much to the confusion of my parents. An entire world of solo entertainment had opened up and I wasted no time in giving myself a strained wrist from the efforts to keep that feeling going.
