For some reason, many of us see it as The End Goal and the whole point of having sex. This puts a huge amount of pressure on women to either climax which BTW is not the optimum atmosphere for actually coming or fake it so their partner doesn't feel bad or like they can't please them. Here, 11 women share the age at which they first had an orgasm. It ranges from very, very young to legit adulthood, proving that when it comes to orgasms, there is no 'normal'.

How old 11 women were when they had their first orgasm
Whether it happens intentionally or by accident, most women remember the first time they hit the orgasm jackpot. Further exploration led to a truly OMG moment, after which I became a big fan of early nights — no doubt much to the confusion of my parents. An entire world of solo entertainment had opened up and I wasted no time in giving myself a strained wrist from the efforts to keep that feeling going. But how was it for others?
Women Share How and When They Had Their First Orgasm
I get asked about orgasms at least once a week—that's just life as a sex researcher for you. Considering how fleeting the actual experience really is—most times, an orgasm lasts just 10 to 20 seconds—I've always found it interesting how much achieving one matters to people. After all, orgasms are just one way that people judge whether a sexual experience was satisfying. But just because orgasms are fleeting doesn't mean there isn't a lot for researchers like me to dig into. Countless studies have been done on orgasms—like who is having the most of them , the weird things that happen after we have them, and yes, how to increase the odds that you have many, many more, if that's what you're after.
