Women Fail to Reach Orgasm for Many Reasons

Arousal, distress, and latency to orgasm can all play a role in a woman's inability to reach orgasm, according to a new Journal of Sexual Medicine study. 

A team of American researchers surveyed 866 women between the ages of 18 and 60.  (The participants' average age was 23 years).  Almost half the women had trouble reaching orgasm.  

About half of the women with orgasm problems had trouble with arousal. And 57% said they felt moderate to severe distress about their inability to climax. 

However, women in this group rated their relationship quality similarly to women who had no orgasm difficulties, suggesting that overall relationships could remain satisfactory in spite of sexual issues. 

Latency to orgasm - the time it took to climax - could be different for women and men, the authors noted.
