Reason for female orgasms?

Maybe it has got something to do with how all men start off as women, and only masculinise later in the womb. So you could say that women's orgasms are the precursors of male orgasms. If women were not biologically capable of orgasm, neither would men.

I at least skimed all prior post in this thread and was surprised
not to find what at least to me appears to be the obvious and nearly irrefutable reason why females have orgaisms, if you subscribe to an evolutionary view of mankinds origin, instead a "God made Adam and Eve" view:

Namely, that females who enjoyed sex were more likely to leave their genes in the next generation than those that did not.

I am not meaning to offend everyone, but probably will, when I say:
THANK GOD FOR EVOLUTION, at least for this aspect of it. :rolleyes:

ah ha ha... tribdog made a funny :rolleyes: Anyways, as far as all the mystique surrounding females and sex and all that, really fellas, bottom line is just that men and women aren't so different. I think its pretty funny though how many questions guys always have on the subject whereas i know very few women who even care enough to think about it... So many boys i knew growing up actually looked up all sorts of info on sex, if only they had put such effort into their studies. but i guess boys will be boys... :rolleyes:

well Gale, do remember, as a female college student, you haven't hit your sexual prime whereas a female who is my age (30ish) has :wink: ...guys around 19-21 however are of course interested in the subject to some degree since they are in their sexual prime...just wait, you have much to look forward to! :surprised :biggrin:

I think that was the huge motivator behind the development of durgs like cialis, viagra, and levitra. Since men hit their prime so much earlier than women. I know that wasn't the MAIN reason (actually ED). But I bet it made other men happy too. :wink:

A dear friend of mine (God rest her), joked with me once, she said something along the lines of:

When guys are young and lively and wanting sex all the time, women are like no not tonight darling I'm not in the mood. When women hit their prime and are want it, the men are like uhhh,sorry babe. I can't help but remember that when I see the TV adds for those drugs.

Man!!!!!!!! :bugeye: :surprised This thread really has given me a new sense of respect. I must admit I can't understand it all now but .......... well ......... WOW!!!

So has the thread come up with any reasons for anything at all from this thread??? Is there any consistant science in it yet???

Well i dunno about anyone else. I thought my argument worked. I can probably dig up some "consistant science" if you really need it. But i'm pretty sure about what i said... I've looked into the subject...

Could you please state your agruement or the post it is in again please.

Want I am wondering is is there an science behind how women have orgasms??? The website, posted by Kerrie, said that penertration was not enough and it was to do with relaxing yet some women were saying it was possible by penertration alone. Is this just that those women felt good and didn't have an orgasms or that they did??? Is there science to prove any of it at all???

Hmmm... how women have orgasms... i gave a why answer, which was a response to the original question. We have orgasms because we have a clitoris which is basically a mini-penis and so we get to orgasm so do you. Thus i could suppose to answer your question by saying that clitoral stimulus is was causes orgasms. Which, as far as i know is the case. I know its possible to orgasm without direct clitoral contact, (ie only penetration.) i don't want to be graphic or anything, but even with just umm... intercourse... there's still umm, rubbing as two bodies er... interact. Plus just like guys have um other ways of er... pleasure without direct um rubbing... so have we. Hope thats an ok answer.

So it is just because women have a clitoral (a mini-penis) that is stimulated in the same way as men. That is fair enough. Just women don't need to be stimulated as much as they only need to reset and men try to be dominant. Makes sense.

I think one of the words you are looking for is masturbation (with a u or an e???). :smile:

This the point where I stop asking questions and keep my ignorance clean. I am glad I am an innocent guy.

I can quickly sum up the science side of it...there aren't very many credible studies directly addressing the question. The reason has a lot to do with who's in charge of providing the funding for research: 1) panels reviewing grants are dominated by older males (this is changing, but only recently) who really haven't cared much about female orgasm as a high priority for funding; 2) Congress allocates funding, and every year or two someone tries to cut funding to anything that includes the words "sexual behavior" so funding agencies also tend to shy away from funding such work to avoid losing Congressional appropriations. These trends are shifting a bit now that men have their Viagra, and women are starting to demand drugs for them too. So someone's got to start doing the research into mechanisms if they want to create a drug that takes advantage of those mechanisms, but there is a real paucity of research on the topic beyond that of very general anatomy of nerve branches carrying the sensory information.

So, everything that people have suggested here remain speculative, although the speculation I've seen here all seems pretty well grounded in general biological principles. In other words, we don't know which is the right answer, but there are multiple possibilities here that could each be systematically tested if someone was so inclined.

The answer, as far as i'm aware is thus. The penis obviously orgasms and ejactulates in order for reproduction. The clitoris is basically a females underdeveloped "penis." Hence, why it becomes pronounced when stimulated and why it cause pleasure. So the reproductive reason we have orgasms is because males do, and our bodies aren't so dissimilar. Nature would have to go through alot more do do away completely with our "penis," so instead, She leaves it there, in its minisculized form, and it allows us orgasm. She may leave us with a clitoris so that our orgasm helps with fertilization, i don't know. I only know that it is there and so we orgasm just like males.

get it?

The clitoris isn't an underdeveloped penis, rather the penis is an overdeveloped clitoris. The male must have an X chromosome and females always have two X's. Therefore men start out as it were as something of a female (which is why they have nipples and mammary glands) before the Y chromosome kicks in and they begin to change into the male sex. Men always need an X to survive, but women never need a Y. Nature did not give women a "penis", nature gave us a template and the Y chromosome simply mutated what could have been a female into a male.

It was also shown in a video documentary once that when a female has an orgasm, the cervix "dips" down into the pool of sperm. I think this is a possibility for female orgasm. Again it could also be that as someone else said, if it feels good you will want to do it many times. I think the female orgasm also may be harder to obtain but superior to the male orgasm, which shows possibly why men feel they NEED to orgasm many many times where women are not as frenzied. Men can have 5 or 6 orgasms that will equal the satisfaction of one female orgasm. Men do not seem to have orgasms last very long at all, a few seconds at best.

Also, the penis itself doesn't orgasm, it is just a route by which sperm can be introduced to the female. Though with a female, orgasm occurs in the vagina, the clitoris, the cervix and the uterus.
