in most cases, the vaginal wall will contract rhythmically during orgasm. orgasm may be coupled with emission of urethral fluid (female ejaculation).

and it tends to be quite pleasurable (to varying degrees).

Let's not overrate the female ejaculation thing, actually, because it's actually not all that common, and women who are looking for that to happen as "proof" that they've had an orgasm are likely to be kinda frustrated, since even when it does happen, it's not always obvious that it has. No sense having people feeling badly that they "haven't had a real orgasm" because they haven't experienced female ejaculation, right? Particularly when not all women have those kinds of orgasms in the first place.

If you're curious about orgasm, you should definitely read our series about sexual response here: www.scarleteen.com/pink/pages/response.html

Some of the ways people can tell they are having or are about to have an orgasm:

-- your body may get very tense, then suddenly relax
-- your breathing may get very fast, and you may have a feeling like sensation in your genitals is "building up" and then releasing
-- some people get a little dizzy just after they have had an orgasm
-- you may feel like the sensation is getting almost unbearable, then suddenly you feel a sensation of release
-- and so on.

There are any number of variations on that theme. If you are really curious about orgasm, masturbating is probably the best way to experiment with having them -- you know better than anyone else what will feel good to you, and how to touch your own body.

It depends. If you didnt go to the restroom before you start whatever your doing, you might have the urge too. I wouldnt think everytime, but Im just going along with what happens to me.

But its a good idea to go the the bathroom before AND after you do anything of the sort..just to empty your bladder!

For many years, I never knew that I had already had many orgasms. I started masturbating at a very young age, long before I'd even heard the word "orgasm". When I did hear the word, I thought maybe that was something that would happen if I kept on touching myself beyond the good feeling. Later I realized this "good feeling" WAS an orgasm.

I think that women's orgasms vary in how they feel a lot more than men's. I've had some strong, some not. They usually feel less strong now than when I was a child. My boyfriend claims that his orgasms all feel pretty much the same.

About peeing: I used to find that orgasms made me have to pee, but now they don't so much. Now I find I don't feel like peeing after clitoral orgasms, but when my G-spot is stimulated, I REALLY have to go

Rizzo, I understand the not realising and then wondering; it's nice NOT to be told that if you'd had one you'd know! michelle, you may feel very sleepy/happy afterwards, sort of floaty, and very nice. And about the ejaculation thing. If it happens, it feels good, but that's the orgasm that does it, not the fluid. It can also cause problems with lubrication afterwards, because the stuff is like water, not at all slippery. So sometimes, not doing that at all can be better.
