While this list will explore 5 facts about the male orgasm versus the female orgasm, the differences between the sexes do not end here. In terms of sexuality, there are many differences between men and women, although, surprising similarities also exist. Some examples of differences in orgasm include length and after effects.
Length. A woman’s orgasm typically lasts longer than a man’s orgasm. On average, a woman's orgasm may last roughly fourteen seconds longer than a man's. On the other hand, men are aroused more quickly.
Trance. Centers of the brain responsible for regulating emotion shut down when a woman reaches orgasm. She nearly falls into a trance. The same is true for men, but on a less intense level.
Recovery Time. In most cases, a man must rest directly after an orgasm. After recuperating, he can continue. Women recover from the experience much quicker and, because of this, they can have orgasms in rapid succession.
Drowsiness. An orgasm releases oxytocin in the bodies of both genders. This chemical induces drowsiness in men within two to five minutes. On the other hand, women may not feel drowsy for up to 30 minutes. Instead, their craving for intimacy increases, leading to the desire to cuddle and talk, but not sleep. If you are a man who has reprimanded for falling asleep too quickly after sex, you shouldn’t feel too guilty; it is hard to fight chemistry. At the same time, a relationship may grow stronger if you go the extra mile to stay awake and show your partner affection.
Inability to Orgasm. Although some men cannot reach orgasm, the number of women who experience this same condition is much larger. Men tend to be more concerned with premature ejaculation, a condition in which a man has an orgasm too soon.
