Female Orgasm is Good for Fertility


a blog by Beth and Tami of Pulling Down the Moon

Duh! Female orgasm is good for just about anything, wouldn’t you agree? Sex experts suggest, though, that the most fertile sexual positions are those that stimulate orgasm in the woman.

In fact, some ancient texts say that it is preferable for a woman to achieve orgasm after the man in order to procreate. Experts believe this makes sense because there’s a pooling area at the top of the vagina that the uterus dips down into after orgasm. After a man has ejaculated, the cervix can dip into this area and suck in the sperm like a vacuum. On the other hand, there is an advantage to having a woman orgasm first because her vagina will be nicely lubricated when ejaculation occurs.

So I guess it’s not too important getting hung up on the order of operations!

While we all know it’s nice to have an orgasm, experts emphasize that it's not a necessary component for conception, so don’t add undue pressure on yourself or your partner. If you are feeling stressed or anxious about the loss of your sexual response or inability to climax, however, these issues can often be addressed by a licensed psychologist or sex therapist.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help, support or advice from an expert.

Be present, be positive, just be,
