AUDIO: Dr. Marty Klein, Why Do Men Think All Women Orgasm Through Intercourse?

By Dr. Marty Klein Expert

So this questionnaire is right if she is saying that, you know, I am one of those many, many, many, many, many, many women who enjoy intercourse. I just don’t climax from it. And why people don’t understand that, that’s sort of a cultural myth. It’s one of those cultural things where people just don’t understand that penis-vagina intercourse may be a lot of fun, some of my best friends do it, you know, but for most women, that’s not where a climax is going to happen.

That doesn’t mean that it has no value. A lot of people enjoy sex when they don’t climax, and not everybody climaxes every time anyway, but what an individual woman has to do with her partner is to say, “Sweetheart, I am not ‘women.’ I am me. I am not ‘women”, I am Mary Lou, and you have to learn about my body. My body is not the same as all the other women’s bodies. My body is special. Let’s together investigate exactly what makes my body feel the best, and you may be surprised. In fact, I may discover a few new things, and I may be surprised, but we have to get to know my special, unique body as opposed to ‘women’s bodies.’”

Do you think medical companies should continue to search for a "female Viagra" in the hopes of one day receiving FDA approval?:
