In this clip, the women discuss the different variables that contribute to their reaching orgasm.
Female: Tried a true method for having an orgasm during intercourse is having just had one in another way. I haven’t–it was like, orgasm during an intercourse is much easier if he has made me come or I've made myself come just now.
Female: How far apart?
Female: Like only minutes.
Female: Only minutes.
Female: I think I would quickie because it takes me like me ten minutes, you know.
Female: You see, I have it–if I'm not warmed up, you know, it doesn’t happen.
Female: You see the variants is so great for me though, its like if I'm ovulating and we’ve been like touching each others it the thigh, under the dinner table, and kissing for a long time and that kind of thing, oh yeah, then its like five to ten minutes. But if we’re just like, I get home from work and we’re watching TV for a while and we just ate like, I'm going to need an hour. It’s like an hour to like work up the thing.
Female: Like I can’t just be pants on when it happens.
Female: I have to be ready to be passed on.
Female: I have an announcement to make. I just had my first oral sex, only no finger, just tongue whereas in the partner–after New Year’s eve, I'm 36 years old–
Female: You know what, oral sex, I have–is overrated for me. I have–its also–I found that all men think that its like instant orgasm, its what we’re all waiting for like if penis entering vagina doesn’t induce instant orgasm like, its tongue and vagina that’s going to induce instant orgasm. And for me it’s really not like I–a face close to my face does just as much work for me as a face between my legs. I have to be excited already for it to work.
Female: I know where to put that face and keep it away from being–to that base.
Female: Its like occasionally–
Female: But I don’t know, so that way–and that oral sex is a little like, it doesn’t–
Female: I feel that way now. After my first boyfriend broke it off so good, I–I cant believe I'm saying this, I haven’t actually been as satisfied through oral sex as I have been since I was like whenever the hell we broke, 17 or 18. He kind of set the precedent and like my boyfriend will work at it but I feel bad because I'm just like, you can just come up.
Female: That’s a real tough issue is starting to feel guilty or like you're taking too long, you're taking too much–
Female: Well, if you know, because you know, you can tell from the jump if this is going to go somewhere or you know, if you just trash it and move on to something else, better.
Female: Well, and frankly, I mean, once–I feel like also there is a breaking point where I was really into oral sex for a while because that was the only way I was ever going to come with you. As if like, it was like on the clitoris, sucking, like that’s the only way it’s going to happen but now that I know it can happen in other ways, I feel more intimate to being–
Female: But how did you get away from that? Because even like when I just do my own thing with my tools whenever, I'm like this one position that I get in is like–is the one and I can’t necessarily get and I know you’ve–and you could kind of train yourself into a corner. So how did you suddenly go up, you know, I'm going to get away from oral and this is going to happen this way. How did you?
Female: It wasn’t a decision, it just happen organically.
Female: For some reason, I know this sounds–but as I got more comfortable with my body I got more comfortable experimenting with intercourse whereas before I felt, “Oh, this is it.” This is how it goes, you on top, me not orgasming and worrying that I'm going to dry up because this isn’t turning me on.
Female: And once I realize that I could be like slowed down, like maybe this, like, “Oh, I can touch myself.” Then I was like–the range was like, “Oh, there are possibilities here whereas like that was the only way it was going to happen.”
