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

Brittany, 29 years old, hasn't climaxed in 10 years.

“Brittany,” experienced her first orgasm as a junior in college when she lost her virginity. Unfortunately, it appears it was also her last: Brittany is now 29 and married, but she hasn’t had an orgasm in the past 10 years. Over the course of that decade, she has tried just about everything to achieve the pleasure she felt that first time, from different positions to sex toys. Frustratingly, nothing has worked.

"I've been close a bunch of times,” she reported, “But I'm either too obsessed with getting there that I can't relax, or I wind up overstimulated and just lose it." Brittany and her husband haven’t given up, though, and continue to search for a solution to her gratification issues. She has expressed some frustration, and the two are considering seeing a sex therapist, but Brittany feels confident she can achieve an orgasm again, someday.
