Are vaginal orgasms different from clitoral orgasms? The truth is, even professionals disagree on whether there really is a vaginal orgasm. Some say they are two different experiences powered by different nerve pathways; others say all orgasms are clitoral orgasms. That is, what might be called vaginal orgasms are really clitoral because the clitoris is actually much larger than it appears to the naked eye, and thus it “innervates” much more of the vagina than we previously realized.
