Multi-Oh Secret #1: She Knows the Definition of "Multiple Orgasm"

Having a multiple orgasm is not some unattainable sexual holy grail. Women have multiples more often than you think. A multiple orgasm is simply “having more than one orgasm within the same lovemaking event.” You might have a very specific idea of what a multi-oh should look like but, according to Lou Paget, author of The Great Lover Playbook, there are actually three different kinds that women can have -- “Compound Singles” are when there are substantial non-arousal breaks between orgasm; “Sequential Multiples” are orgasms that occur two to three minutes apart with cool-downs in between; and, “Serial Multiples” are mere seconds apart. By recognizing the different types of multiple orgasms, a woman may realize she’s been having them and didn’t even know it!

Also keep in mind how unique each woman is to men. “It’s so much easier for women than men to have a multiple orgasm,” says Lou Paget, sex educator and author of The Big O – Orgasms: How to Have Them, Give Them, and Keep Them Coming. “Women don’t go through the refractory phase the way men do -- with blood flow releasing after ejaculation -- so a multiple orgasm could be seconds after the first.” When a woman has one orgasm, she doesn’t need to wait for seconds. She can just go again and again!
