These 12 Women Never Had the Big 'O' - Can the Relationship Survive?

32 year old and married: She's never had an orgasm with her husband, yet she's never felt closer to him

Most people associate sexual intercourse with a sense of incredible pleasure that results in an orgasm. However, this euphoric release is not guaranteed for everyone, especially for women. In fact, this is a more prevalent issue than many realize. Science has confirmed that women are much less likely to obtain an orgasm than men. While males report reaching a climax in 95% of their sexual encounters, this number is recorded at only 50% for women. 

A lack of sexual satisfaction can put a strain on any relationship, and the pressure only increases with marriage. An inability to orgasm can certainly make things difficult, and the following 12 women are not afraid to open up about what it’s really like to be in a relationship and not be gratified.

This first woman, who wished to remain anonymous, disclosed her story of being 32 years old, married, and never once experiencing an orgasm in her entire sexual history. She began having sex at 18, and has been intimate with 12 men as well as masturbated on occasion, yet she has never managed to climax. That being said, she still enjoys engaging in sexual intercourse with her husband, and on a pretty regular basis at that.

“After we have sex,” she confided, “I feel close to the man I love, and while of course I would be thrilled to experience an orgasm (we haven't given up), we don't make it such a big focus anymore.”
