Content and Aim: Issues of orgasm and pleasure have attracted considerably less attention compared to other sexual problems. This lecture answers a lot of questions that shed light on issues of women’s orgasm. Although most women can reach orgasm through masturbation, orgasm during partnered sexual activity of any sort is less frequent and consistent. However, lesbian couples are more likely to reach orgasm during partnered sexual activity compared to heterosexual couples. The importance of orgasm and faking of orgasm are discussed for the implications for therapy. The clinical presentation of complaints related to orgasm, the physiological and psychosocial factors related to orgasm are discussed. The speaker thoroughly presents the steps and questions that need to be included in the assessment of orgasm complaints. The lecture also presents the key content of educating women on orgasm, on masturbation exercises ( solo and partnered), as well as coital alignment. Two clinical cases also present the speaker’s specific management steps.

Learning Objectives: 1. Know the key aspects of the definition for orgasm disorder in women 2. Be familiar with the clinical presentation of orgasm disorder in women 3. Know the most strongly associated organic and psychogenic, sexual and couple related factors that explain orgasm disorder 4. Be familiar with the therapeutic options
