How Do I Know If I’m Having an Orgasm?
It can be hard to tell.
When you first become sexually active, it can be hard to tell if you’re orgasming. Simply put, an orgasm is an intensely pleasurable physical response that results from the release of tension built up during sexual stimulation. There are some physical signals that can clue you in if you’re on your way, too. When you’re aroused, your heart beats faster, your breathing quickens, your nipples become erect, and your genitals become engorged with blood. As arousal climbs, these sensations increase until you orgasm.
