The way your vagina is shaped could impact your orgasm

Science is blowing my mind right now.

Vagina shape impacts orgasm

A new evidence review suggests that your ability to orgasm has a lot to do with the shape of your vagina, Medical Express reports. Leslie Hoffman of the Department of Anatomy at Indiana Universtiy School of Medicine and her colleagues found that during gestation, the clitoris drifts up and away from the vagina, and women whose clitorises drifted too far up during that time might have a very difficult time having an orgasm. Researchers say that women whose clitoris and urinary opening are closer together will have a better chance of reaching an orgasm and Elizabeth Lloyd, an affiliated faculty scholar with the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction at Indiana University - Bloomington who wasn't involved with the study, says that the ideal distance is 2.5 centimetres (or just under 1 inch). Maureen Whlihan, an ob-gyn in Florida who wasn't involved in the research but did review the findings, suggested that women whose clitorises were high up likely had difficulties reaching orgasm during sex (or couldn't do it at all) because the friction from the penis couldn't reach that high to stimulate it. Dr. Whelihan also said that of women she's seen who claim they're having purely vaginal orgasms, "90 per cent of them say they have to be on top. Guess what? When you're on top, sitting on the partner's erection and grinding his abdomen, it's really not just a vaginal orgasm. You're rubbing your clitoris on his abdomen or pelvis." So it's possible that it's not you or your partner's fault that you have a hard time reaching orgasm and your clit is just too damn high. Thankfully, there are ways to work around that and it's called a vibrator. SOURCE: US COSMOPOLITAN
