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

By Dr. Marty Klein Expert

No sex or relationship question is too embarrassing, because it's time to ask EmpowHer’s sexuality expert, Dr. Marty Klein, anything. Asking your questions is EmpowHer’s Founder and Chairman Michelle King Robson.

Michelle King Robson:
Dr. Klein, why do men think all women orgasm through intercourse?

Dr. Marty Klein:
Actually, I think the question is, why do so many men and women think that women are supposed to climax from intercourse? That’s what people refer to as real sex or sex or the right way or normal, normal sex. It’s really interesting that that’s the model that people have. People think that the vagina is the main sexual organ for women, and the truth is that for most women, the vagina is not the primary sexual organ, the clitoris is.

My friend Lonnie Barbach says that if the way that people thought was normal sex, was men rubbing their testicles against women’s clitorises, women would be having orgasms every time they had sex, and men would be walking around saying, “What’s wrong with me?”

Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.
