Female Sexuality: Physical Problems for Women



Many women experience sexual problems, particularly with orgasm. A woman may be unable to move from the plateau phase into orgasm, which may be very frustrating. She may be able to climax easily from masturbation, but does not do so because of intercourse.

A woman may be unable to move from the plateau phase into orgasm, which may be very frustrating. She may be able to climax easily from masturbation, but does not do so because of intercourse.
This is now thought to be perfectly normal, and may in fact apply to a sizeable proportion (a third or more) of all women. Problems with orgasm when with a partner can sometimes be because the women or the partner does not know how best she can be sexually stimulated to the point of climax, and a straightforward sex manual can usually help the couple out of this problem. However, there are a number of physical factors that can lead to sexual problems, and these could be considered before a couple goes on to seek psychological help with any sexual difficulty.
 Libido is the interest in or our need for sex, so it is obviously a prerequisite of enjoyable sexual activity. However, there are a number of simple problems that can lead to a decrease in libido, and these are often easily rectified.
Many women report that they have little interest in sex immediately after the birth of a child. This may be a result of the change in hormone levels during and after pregnancy, but it may also be caused simply by physical tiredness.
The Pill can also reduce libido. This is a relatively uncommon effect, and may be easily solved by a change of Pill, of trying a different kind of contraceptive. Once again, it is they change in hormone levels that is said to be responsible.
The menstrual cycle can be accompanied by changes in the level of sexual interest. This should not present a problem once the woman and her partner have understood and accepted these ebbs and flows and their cyclical changes. A small minority of women, however, will experience loss of libido because of hormone deficiency or imbalance that is quite independent of the menstrual cycle, and this needs treatment.
Physical difficulties with arousal and intercourse can also occur because of pregnancy and childbirth. The vagina may be very tender after giving birth, and intercourse should not be attempted until all stiches have healed completely.
Once vaginal soreness has disappeared, (this may take three weeks or more) intercourse can take place as usual.
Painful intercourse needs medical investigation and treatment, as it may indicate gynaecological problems, such a cysts on the ovaries or an infection inside the uterus. proportion (a third or more) of all women.

Human Sexuality: The Male Orgasmic Cycle


The male orgasmic cycle goes through exactly the same sequence: excitement, plateau, orgasm and resolution. Moreover, it is equally complex.

The excitement phase begins as a response to a sexual thought or feeling, or to physical stimulation. The penis responds almost immediately, and becomes erect.  Blood fills the spaces (corpora cavernosa) within the flaccid (soft) penis, so that it can enlarge to six inches or more in length when erect. Breathing deepens, the pulse rate increases and the body is more sensitive.

The plateau phase follows, and the penis is now fully erect. It may have darkened in colour, and a drop of liquid may appear at the entrance to the urethra. This is seminal fluid, and it may contain a small amount of sperm.

The testicles increase in size by as much as 50 per cent, rising up towards the body. And the genital area increases in sensitivity as orgasm is approached.

Orgasm is made up of two stages, but these are linked in such a way that it is impossible to have the first without the second. First sperm travel out of the testicles up the vas deferens (seminal duct) to the seminal vesicles. These vesicles produce semen, which is mixed with the sperm, and is then ready for ejaculation. About four seconds later the fluid is pushed up into and along the urethra, a result of a series of contractions made by the prostate gland and the urethral muscles. The semen is then ejaculated out of the urethra. This is an extremely exciting sensation. 


The resolution phase sees that penis returning to a non-aroused state, and loosing the erection. The physical tension, which has accompanied arousal, now disappears, and this man may feel very relaxed and sleepy. 

Human Sexuality: The Female Orgasmic Cycle


Orgasm is a simple reflex response to sexual stimulation, and can occur as the result of a variety of sexual stimuli. The physical cycle of arousal, however, is always exactly the same. Though intensity of the experience may vary from woman to woman, and from time to time, and depend on the source of stimulation. The Americana sexologists Masters and Johnson have identified four phases of the orgasmic cycle: excitement, plateau, orgasm and resolution.

The excitement phase is brought about by sexual thoughts, emotional closeness and physical attraction. The body immediately reacts with an increase in general sensitivity and response to caresses.

The sexual organs become filled with blood, so that they swell both internally and externally. The vagina expands in length and width and the vulva swells a little. Both the clitoris and labia minora (inner lips of the vulva) fill with blood and may become darker in color. The vagina begins to lubricate itself in readiness for sexual contact.

The plateau phase follows immediately. The sexual organs become extremely sensitive, responding to the caresses of lovemaking. The vagina expands to become about two inches longer than in the non-aroused state. It is at this point that intercourse may be taking place, and sensation by the narrowing of the outer third of the vagina, making it grips the penis more easily. Lubrication of the vagina continues, and all the muscles around the sexual organs become tense in a very pleasurable way. The breasts may swell and the nipples become erect, especially if they are touched. Breathing is deep, and there may be a light rash over the upper parts of the body.

The clitoris, which is the most sensitive of the female sexual organs and where all orgasms begin, is now fully erect. Just before orgasm, it pulls itself back inside the clitoral hood.

Orgasm may now occur. There will be a rush of extremely pleasurable sensation beginning at the clitoris and moving outwards into the whole body. The muscles surrounding the vulva, vagina and anus now go into a series of spontaneous rhythmic contractions, which are delightful indeed.


The resolution phase then begins immediately after orgasm. In it, the sexual organs return to a non-aroused state.  The volume of blood, which has engorged the sexual organs slowly, drains away back into the body. Sexual interest may be aroused again almost immediately, and one or more orgasmic cycles will recommence.
