Women explain what an orgasm feels like

Trying to put a feeling into words is like trying to name a colour that hasn’t been invented. Sure you can give it a stellar go  but chances are you won’t find the words to say what you need to say.

Alas, of course, there are women on the Internet who have tried and they have taken to THIS Reddit thread to share their experience of orgasm.


Here are the top answers to the question – What does the female orgasm feel like?

"You know when you watch a really suspenseful movie and at some point you realize that your entire body is wound up and tense? And then, when the suspense finally breaks when the bad guy jumps out of the closet or whatever and there is that feeling or tingles and relief. It's kinda like that. But really sexy."

"You know that light-headed feeling? Imagine your whole body feeling like that, with a wave as if your entire body is "asleep" (like when your foot falls asleep). I feel really sensitive for a while afterward. I have a ton of energy and I am really excited but then I want to sleep."

"It feels like really hot, but not unpleasant, water building up into a small tsunami surrounding and building up pressure inside my body, behind my clit. It rides its way up my abdomen, spine, and works its way down my extremities, leaving goosebumps in its wake. The waves cause spasmming along their route as my skin tightens; nipples get harder and more sensitive, my face and chest flush. I shake a lot, and the aftermath leaves me breathless."


"It feels warm.. and then it feels really warm. Then everything feels good and it's like a wave of awesomeness... then it goes away and everything is sensitive and I need water."

"First, you feel it in your inner thighs and it feels warm. Then your can feel the same feeling but warmer and more intense in your lower stomach and the more you try to hold this feeling in, the better it gets. Then snap it spreads out in your whole "downstairs" and it's more twitching and..what can you call it? Physical feeling? And this keeps going like this for about 15 sec. It's amazing."

"It is like a warm, tingling wave that starts at your center and just radiates outward. It can be frustratingly blissful as you start to build and then lose it and then build again and each time you start to climb that mountain it becomes more intense and desperate. Perfect orgasm doesn't take long to start the beginnings of but takes forever to actually reach."
