Hi Leena

Yes, the arousal cycle for women is usually a little slower than it is for men. This is why foreplay is important. It gives your body time for lubrication and blood flow. In addition, if you are not used to having sex, nerves can slow things down a bit.

The Cleveland Clinic has a nice overview of the sexual response cycle: http://my.clevelandclinic.org/healthy_living/sexual_health/hic_the_sexual_response_cycle.aspx. They state:

"The sexual response cycle has four phases: excitement, plateau, orgasm and resolution. Both men and women experience these phases, although the timing usually is different. For example, it is unlikely that both partners will reach orgasm at the same time. In addition, the intensity of the response and the time spent in each phase varies from person to person. Understanding these differences may help partners better understand one another’s bodies and responses, and enhance the sexual experience."

Thank you for writing and if you have further questions, let us know.
