Some women may struggle to climax. Could this be why?

Have scientists uncovered the secret to female orgasm?

The female orgasm can be a thing of mystery for men and women alike. While some ladies seem to have no problem reaching climax between the sheets, the big finish can be much more elusive for others. Changing up positions can certainly help, as can arousal gels and sexual lubricants, but what happens when that big finish just doesn't come?

Recently, a team of researchers from the Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, sought to demystify the female orgasm – at least somewhat. The study was published by the Journal of Sexual Medicine., and revealed that the clitoris may have even more to do with sexual stimulation than previously thought. According to reports, 30 women took part in the investigation – 10 of whom reported difficulty reaching climax. The scientists took measurements of the pelvic area with a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, and discovered a correlation between ability to orgasm and the distance between the clitoris and vaginal opening. 

"Researchers found that the direct distance between the clitoris and the vagina (as measured by a line running straight through the body) was 5 to 6 millimeters longer on average in the group of women with orgasm problems. These women also had a smaller clitoris on average," the online news outlet LiveScience states.

If you fall into this category, all is not lost! Just make sure you and your partner pay plenty of attention to this part of your anatomy whenever the sex aids come out. You may also benefit from female-dominant sexual positions that let you take the reins!
