Multiple orgasms occur when a person climaxes more than once during a period of sexual activity. They are more common in women, but not all women have them. There are also varying definitions of what multiple orgasms are. Women stay aroused in between each one. Others feel that multiple orgasms can occur with more time in between. With this definition, a woman might climax once, rest a bit, then climax again minutes later.
Everything you need to know about orgasms
The multiple orgasm: Does it exist and who knows for sure?
The clitoral orgasm is the most common. Vaginal orgasm means that a woman can reach orgasm without clitoral stimulation. Most often this is through vaginal penetration. The latest research, however, suggests that vaginal orgasm is nothing but a myth since the vagina itself is anatomically incapable of producing an orgasm. Women describe the most pleasurable experiences to involve a combination of vaginal and clitoral orgasm. Others think the hype around this topic is beneficial only to the manufacturers of sex toys. But after a while, this feeling will disappear.
9 Ways to Give Your Partner Multiple Orgasms
Let's get something straight: Having multiple orgasms isn't some exotic skill; it simply means having more than one peak during a single sex session — which could mean within minutes, hours, or an entire evening, says REDBOOK Love Network expert Lou Paget, author of The Big O.
