Episode 149: All About Orgasms

We’ve talked a lot about orgasms on this show, but there’s still much to explore! So today’s episode is going to dig into some interesting aspects of orgasm we haven’t really discussed before. We’re also going to consider some tips on having better and more pleasurable orgasms.

I am joined once again by sex therapist Dr. Laurie Mintz, a Professor at the University of Florida and author of the books Becoming Cliterate: Why Orgasm Equality Matters and How to Get It  as well as A Tired Woman’s Guide to Passionate Sex. Some of the topics we discuss include:

  • We hear a lot about the importance of closing the orgasm gap–but we also hear a lot about how orgasms shouldn’t be the goal of sex. So is orgasm the goal or not?
  • Is orgasm a reliable metric of whether people are having good and satisfying sex?
  • Some women say they aren’t sure whether they’ve had an orgasm before. How do you know if you’ve had one or not?
  • What’s the key to helping women have more orgasms?
  • What do we know about multiple orgasms in men?
  • How can everyone get more pleasure from orgasm?
