AIM: To provide a more complete picture of how the orgasmic experience within the heterosexual couple influences individual and partner sexual and relationship satisfaction. METHODS: Using a nationally representative dyadic sample of 1, newlywed heterosexual couples, a structural equation model was estimated to test associations between husband and wife self-reported orgasm frequency, husband and wife report of the other partner's orgasm frequency, and husband and wife misperception of their partner's orgasm frequency, as correlates of relationship and sexual satisfaction. The final structural equation model, including sexual communication, explained moderate amounts of variance in wives' and husbands' relationship satisfaction, and a high level of variance for wives' and husbands' sexual satisfaction.
Even if, as the saying goes, the brain is a woman's most important sex organ, we can't deny the role our bodies play—especially as we get older. Satisfying sex depends on several things: presence of desire, arousal, absence of pain, and an ability to reach orgasm.

Human orgasms usually result from physical sexual stimulation of the penis in males typically accompanying ejaculation and of the clitoris in females. The health effects surrounding the human orgasm are diverse.
But how do women know for sure if they are climaxing? What if the sensation they have associated with climax is actually one of the the early foothills of arousal? And how does a woman know if she has had an orgasm?
They can present as a short, solitary O or result in a continuous stream of separate orgasms that goes on and on. Although they may seem to come out of nowhere, researchers have identified a few underlying factors that can trigger this bodily response. In many cases, the sensations come at inopportune or inappropriate times.

But when? And how? Since Aristotle, researchers have looked for the biological and functional purposes of the female orgasm.
