My orgasms don't feel like anything at all

I saw a topic like this in 2009, but I'm afraid I the advice there didn't help. So I hope you all won't mind if I ask to see if there are any new ideas.

The build-up is great. I can go on with the build-up for more than an hour if I pace myself. But when I reach orgasm, I feel absolutely nothing. It doesn't feel good. It doesn't feel bad. I feel absolutely nothing. My legs are a bit shaky and my clitoris is really sensitive. But nothing. I've tried being relaxed and taking it slow, the usual advice. But I still get absolutely nothing out of it, other than becoming less aroused. Does anyone know a remedy for this? Could it be some of the medications I'm taking? Or could it just be something with me?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

I have heard some talk about "female viagra" (possibly) helping. Speak to your doctor about your options. Experimenting with different positions might help. Certainly not stressing about it will help.

I hope some members of the community can share what has helped them. In the meantime, here is a good resource on orgasm that might be helpful.
