I read somewhere that anorgasmia is a diagnosable condition that some people get. Is that true, or is it just a manifestation of deeper insecurities (not that I have a problem with it, I'm just wondering)?

It is documented that somewhere around 90% of anorgasmia problems are psychological issues. This includes stress, fear of intercourse, fatigue, fear of pregnancy, depression, anxiety, and undesirable partner or setting, etc. It can also be caused by prescription and illicit drugs and alcohol. So it really seems like it has most to do with your mental state and less with your physical (although, for people with diseases like MS, this could happen as well)
Sometimes I think it's a wonder that people in our society have any time or energy for sex at all, let alone sex + orgasms. Especially women.
