Q: I am curious as to whether an orgasm caused by sexual intercourse is more intense or longer lasting than an orgasm raced through masturbation. What’s the difference between that?
Expert Answer

There are two known facts within our world, nearly everyone masturbates and nearly everyone has orgasms. The connection between these two are like peas and carrots, they just mix well. However, some people notice they may have more intense orgasms from either process. Some people have better orgasms from masturbation whereas some have better orgasms from sexual intercourse. It is entirely up to how you achieve the orgasm and your own body that determines the intensity.

Why Are My Orgasms More Intense During Masturbation?

Many people claim that orgasms from masturbation are much better than the latter. This may be because the masturbation participant knows what they like, and where to touch. Many people feel when they do it themselves, they can stimulate the spots that feel best for them, hence leading to a stronger orgasm. However, both ways of achieving orgasms produce an orgasm that lasts between 15 to 30 seconds. Both methods of achieving orgasm produce the same result time wise. Women also have two types of orgasms, a clitoral orgasm and an vaginal orgasm. They can vary significantly in how they feel, and their intensity. Which is better is up to the person, and what they like.

There are also many people who state that their orgasms are better when achieved through sexual intercourse. Again, this is because of the way their body reacts. Women usually always state that an masturbation orgasm is better for them, whereas many men prefer orgasm through sexual intercourse. This is because the anatomy of the person’s body. Women’s “hot spots” are more hidden then men’s. The woman’s clitoris is her most sensitive area sexually. When the clitoris is stimulated, more easily through masturbation, it produces a strong orgasm. For men, they can achieve equal stimulation through either masturbation or sexual intercourse. As long as the penis is being stimulated in a way they enjoy, and as long as it’s fully stimulated (meaning more than just the head of the penis) they will have a strong orgasm. Women however, often find it hard to orgasm at all during sexual intercourse. Again, this is because the woman’s most sensitive area isn’t located where a penis would stimulate.

Basically, the intensity of an orgasm totally depends on what the person enjoys, and if the correct spots are being stimulated. Women often find it’s much easier and pleasurable to masturbate, this is due to the female anatomy. Men often find that it’s easier and more pleasurable to orgasm during sexual intercourse. It should also be noted that if the sexual action, whether masturbation or sexual intercourse feels rushed or forced, it’s less likely the person will have an orgasm at all, let alone have a pleasurable orgasm.

To find out which orgasm is best for you, try to achieve an orgasm in both ways and compare them. You can start by having an masturbation session. Be sure to be in a safe spot where you feel comfortable. Since women need anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to achieve a good orgasm, be sure to have enough time and take your time as well. Explore your body for what feels good to you. Once you have achieved an orgasm through masturbation, you can try an orgasm through sexual intercourse. Be sure you are in the mood, and are doing the act with someone you trust and love or at least like. Never force sexual action upon yourself, it is okay to say no. You and your partner will be better off if both parties are up for it. A forced or unwanted sexual action will certainly lead to a forced and less enjoyable orgasm. This is true for both sexes. An orgasm is something that is as individual as the person achieving it. Take your time, enjoy yourself and see what you like most.
