Hey...This question concerns my girlfriend - she's been sexually active for a number of years, and uses a vibrator when she is not having partnered sex. Her concern is that lately, she has not been able to orgasm frequently, and when she does, it isn't very satisfying. She considers herself a very sexual being, so naturally it upsets her that she doesn't "feel good" sexually. Perhaps this has something to do with the great deal of stress in her life right now? (it's nearing the end of the school year) Can this cause a decline in orgasmic satisfaction? She also mentioned that it feels almost as if her clitoris has gone into shock after a little bit of stimulation, and this is something new to her...any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Sexual feelings and sensitivity can really vary in even just one person, and we all have times when we're feeling more or less sexual. I think it's very likely that it is indeed stress that's affecting your girlfriend, and as stress can also affect health and energy levels, this may be affecting how her clitoris reacts. I'd suggest she look into ways to lower her stress levels, but by no means should she expect what's going on right now to be a long term thing, or worry too much about it.

Why scream and cry when you know it's true?
Why fall in love when there's better things to do?
