Hi, I have never orgasmed before but after having sex my body shakes. I want to know if it is a sign of orgasm? Can you educate me more about orgasm? Thanks.

Hi Anon,

These are both normal. If you have any doubt, you can certainly talk to your doctor, but you shouldn't be worried.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for visiting the EmpowHER community and sharing your question!

Sounds to me like you are experiencing the wonderful world of having an Orgasm. It is normal for your body to "twitch" after experiencing this.

Here is some information from the EmpowHER community about the technical aspect of a female orgasm:

Female Orgasm

Research generated from the personal experience of many women suggests that there are at least two types of female orgasm. The first originates in the clitoris. The second starts in the clitoris and spreads down into the vagina. This results in a more powerful orgasm than when the orgasm involves the clitoris alone. This type of orgasm is believed to result from stimulation of the G spot, which is thought to be located at the front wall of the vagina, and is accompanied by contractions of the uterus, vagina, and pelvic organs. As Jane C., a Boston resident reports, "This type of orgasm is an unbelievable, almost out-of-body experience."

Anon, did this help?
