What I meant by actual sex, is intercourse, can some women only have orgasms during intercourse? And do women have intense periods of pleasure(what she refers to as torture) before orgasm or is it that she's not going to orgasm and thus the pleasure without conclusion is "torture". But in regards to your can oral sex have a pregnancy risk?

Unprotected oral sex doesn't carry a pregnancy risk - but it does carry an STD/STI transmission risk.

What I meant by actual sex, is intercourse, can some women only have orgasms during intercourse?

Human bodies can be very idiosyncratic, so I wouldn't swear that that's never ever the case, but it's far more often the other way around - well over 50% women don't reach orgasm from intercourse alone.

So I think it's a bit of a leap to jump from the fact that she doesn't reach orgasm during non-intercourse sex to thinking that intercourse would automatically make her reach orgasm.

And as the other advocates have already pointed out, she's the only one who can tell you what she's experiencing and what she wants to do.

But you might find Sexual Response and Orgasm A Users Guide helpful.

Just a tiny correction...

Generally speaking oral sex doesn't carry a pregnancy risk. However, according to our pregnancy risk charts...

There is no direct risk of pregnancy due to oral sex alone. There is no direct route between the mouth and the genitals. Swallowing semen cannot make a woman pregnant (it can, however, infect her with an STD).

Unprotected oral sex may result in the transmission of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs). If you are having unprotected oral sex, consult your health care provider for an STD screening.

However, there may be a LOW risk of pregnancy if semen is shared mouth-to-mouth between two partners, and then one of the partners performs unprotected cunnilingus (oral sex on a woman) with semen or traces of semen on or in his mouth.

There is a very significant STD risk however.

Unprotected oral sex: ("blow job," "giving head," "going down," "rimming,")

Cytomegalovirus (CMV)
Hepatitis B
Herpes Simplex
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV, Warts)

Remember that just because you "haven't been with anyone else" or are a virgin, or whatever doesn't mean you're automatically STD free. The only way to know is to get tested. And the only way to protect yourselves from transmitting anything you may have (either from previous sexual contact, or from previous/current non-sexual contact) is either abstinance from all sexual activity, or the use of condoms and dental dams.
