Women get Premature OrgasmsPremature orgasms have been attributed to men but a new study has revealed other facts. Surprising percentage of women, around 40 percent, of the 510 questioned in the survey conducted by the Portugal based Hospital Magalhaes Lemos, said that they suffer from premature orgasms. Around 3 percent of them said that their problem is chronic.

This sexual dysfunction has always been linked to men but the researchers wanted to explore whether women are affected by it or not. For this, they sent a questionnaire to women aged between 18 and 45. They were asked questions pertaining to the frequency of premature orgasms, including whether they ever felt a loss of control over their orgasm’s timing. They were also asked to relate whether such a dysfunction led to stress.

The results revealed that around 40 percent of respondents had experienced orgasm earlier than desired. Women felt the same as men feel when faced in similar situation. If they finish very quickly and their partner does not, it is going to bother them a lot. After the woman gets her orgasm, continuing any longer is going to be painful, while the man has not had his. This will make him unsatisfied and the woman would be left to nurse her guilt.

In another research on American women, it was found that more than half the women in the age group 18 to 30 suffered from a condition even worse than premature orgasm, the inability to orgasm. Although that particular study cannot be taken to represent all American women as research is needed on a wider group of women. An issue which accentuates this problem is the tendency in women to be shy about telling people about this problem.

Serafim Carvalho, one of the researchers from the Hospital Magalhães Lemos said that traditionally, female sexual dysfunctions have not received as much attention as those in males. Carvaolho and his colleagues found some odd references in clinical textbooks and also a few anecdotal reports in their clinic.


The problem they have set out to correct, by doing a research in premature orgasms of women is that the dysfunction is not an officially recognised sexual dysfunction, in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Health, the definitive reference for psychiatrists. However, such a dysfunction in men is listed in the manual. The questions posed to women also included those on their relationship satisfaction with their partner and whether this dysfunction was coming in the way.
