What is anorgasmia?

Anorgasmia is one of the most common sexual disorders. This condition is described inability to experience orgasm both during sexual intercourse with a partner and during masturbation. In most cases, this trouble is detected in women. In men such disorder is quite rare.

Anorgasmia is well studied by medical specialists. The disorder is presented in ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases of the 10th revision) under the code F52.0.

It can also be combined with the complete disappearance of sexual desire or a partial decrease in interest to opposite sex– hypolibidinousness.

In anorgasmia women and men retain a natural interest in people of the opposite sex. Their body requires regular intimate relationships. Such a person experiences excitement when communicating with an individual of the opposite sex. However, despite the existing desire, a sincere sexual interest in a partner, a person is not able to reach the peak of enjoyment. Orgasm does not occur, despite the foreplay and the use of additional intimate stimulation, for example: viewing of erotic films.

Such disorder is a combination of three phenomena that can be manifested in humans in different level. The main symptom of anorgasmia is the lack of ability to reach orgasm.
