I don't terribly like this question. I would say I rarely have trouble reaching orgasm - but it has happened, if I'm stressed or distracted, or with a new partner, or for no evident reason at all. But there's no option here for, "Well not exactly never, but it doesn't bother me." I imagine that's not actually what you're looking at - it seems you're looking at the gendered breakdowns - but I think it'll skew the data.
We hear from many young people having trouble reaching orgasm who are convinced that they are the ONLY PERSON who has ever had that trouble.
We all know that's nothing close to true, but wanted to do a poll on this to simply address who has EVER had trouble so that we could point users feeling that way to some quick data so they can get a reality check. We also wanted to include one age breakdown because it can often be a factor.
So, no, I don't think your answer skews the data. Not asking about how frequently it happens or how someone feels about it, just asking if it's ever happened for people.

We're talking about trouble reaching orgasm with ANY kind of sex, be it masturbation or sex with a partner, and if sex with a partner, with any given kind of sex, not just one given kind.
I can't have a penis in vagina orgasm however when I stimulate the urethra I can. Will I have to fake it during sex all my life? Is there something I can do about this? Please help. I'm scared.
I'm 18 and have never had an orgasm.
