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

Rosanna: Sex is "lovely", even without an orgasm and after a child

In a healthy relationship, sex can be an important component, but many women still find gratification even without having an orgasm. For them, simply being intimate with the person they love is enough to satisfy. “You don’t need to orgasm to have good sex,” says sex therapist Tanya Koens, and Rosanna’s case exemplifies this assertion. Five years into her relationship with her now-husband, Rosanna revealed how she had not and could not climax during intercourse. At first, it disconnected the pair and ruined their sex life. However, they both eventually let it go and stopped making it their sole focus whenever they were intimate. This allowed them to place less emphasis on sexual gratification and more on their intimacy and growing love.

Today, the two are married and have a baby, and Rosanna has been able to relax about her situation. “I don’t need to put on a front,” she said. Instead, her and her husband simply enjoy being close to one another during sex, and that’s more than enough for them.
