What is an orgasm?

When a person is sexually aroused, they feel nice feelings in their body. These pleasant feelings can sometimes result in an orgasm. An orgasm is a climax or peak of the sexual feelings.

When a person has an orgasm, they get strong feelings of sexual pleasure. The muscles in the genital area or pelvis contract and they feel a high level of sexual excitement.

People feel orgasms in different ways. Some people say that an orgasm feels like a slow build-up of arousal or sexual tension which ends with a peak moment of pleasure. Others find that their whole body tingles and feels good.

When a male has an orgasm, he usually ejaculates at the same time - a white fluid called semen comes out of the end of his penis.

Some women can have one orgasm after another, or they can have a 'multiple orgasm' (which feels like several orgasms in one go). Most men need time to rest in between orgasms.

Often people experience their first orgasm through masturbation. People have orgasms by themselves and people have orgasms when having sex with other people.
