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

According to this 23-year-old, orgasms are a "mystery."

The elusiveness of orgasms for some women can make it seem like a fanciful myth, especially in your twenties, when many women feel they should be at their sexual peak. 23-year-old Sarah Astner was more than familiar with this frustration. She was healthy and sexually active, even liked watching porn, although she admitted to getting bored with masturbating. Despite a vibrant sexual appetite and enjoying intercourse, though, Sarah continuously failed to achieve an orgasm. “For me,” she said, “an orgasm is… the Higgs boson — its existence has yet to be conclusively proven.” It has proven to be more of a problem for her lovers, though, so she has learned to fake it when necessary. Beyond that, though, she treats her climactic issues as a case of “you can’t miss what you’ve never had,” so while it sometimes proves tiresome and annoying, Sarah doesn’t let it prevent her from enjoying sex.
