Orgasm (from ancient Greek orgasmos: "intense excitement") is the climax of sexual pleasure which can be reached by masturbation or intercourse. In French, it is called "le petit mort" – the little death. [1]

But what is an orgasm actually? In 1976, Ellen B. Vance and Nathaniel N. Wagner asked 48 students to put their orgasmic experiences into words. According to the evaluation, the scientists came to the conclusion that the orgasmic phenomenon is experienced in a surprisingly similar way by both sexes. The physical reactions during orgasm experienced by males and females are also very similar: euphoric sensations, involuntary rhythmic muscular contractions, often ejaculation, hyperventilation, raised blood pressure and pulse rate, dilated pupils, higher perspiration and release of neurotransmitters such as endorphins, sex hormones, adrenaline and oxytocin. [2] [3] [4]

In women, there are three different orgasmic systems with a related neuroplexus: the clitoris (nervipudendales), the vagina (nervipelvicii) as well as the uterus and cervix (nervihypogastrices et pelvii). The respective hot spots are the C-Spot [POINTS OF INTERESTS], G-Spot and A-Spot. [POINTS OF INTERESTS] Special studies have shown that depending on the kind of orgasm different brain regions are activated. [4] [5] However, research on this topic is very complex since nervous systems vary from one individual to another. In men, there are also different forms of neuroplexus which can be responsible for various orgasms but studies are rare. [6] [7] [8] [9] [10]

The body of each woman and man is different and has its own aptitude to achieve orgasms. They can be classified according to their qualities which might be an interesting task for researchers but should not be central for each individual. Instead the pleasure should have priority.
