Most people have had one before. But what do you know about orgasm? How does science deal with it? Here are five facts about orgasm.

How many calories do you consume during orgasm?

Unfortunately only 2 to 3 kilocalories. The sex before, it consumes calories. But unfortunately not the energy that is consumed in high-performance sport. Men burn around 100 kilocalories during sex, women burn 70 kilocalories.

How do you measure the time to orgasm?

In science, one speaks of the intravaginal ejaculation latency period, IELT for short. The IELT is defined as the time from the onset of vaginal penetration to the onset of intravaginal ejaculation. In studies, this time is typically measured with a stopwatch.

If the time from penetration to orgasm takes less than 1 to 2 minutes for a man, one speaks of a premature orgasm. In other words: anything under 1 to 2 minutes is too short and in medical jargon it is an ejaculatio praecox.

In men it is needed for reproduction. But why do women have orgasm? And why the hormone cocktail? Why orgasm occurs is a mystery.

We try to get the secret on the track - in the broadcasts «Input»(Sunday, June 28th from 8 p.m. on Radio SRF 3) and«Colon»(Tuesday, June 30th from 8 p.m. on Radio SRF 1).

Also the short podcast «Input story»Deals with the subject of orgasm. You can listen to it at the top of this article.

How long does an orgasm last?

The coitus phase lasts an average of 7 minutes, it can of course be longer or shorter. The orgasm itself only lasts a few seconds. Experience has shown that measurements are difficult and - as with the IELT - rather unromantic. Correctly estimating the individual experience in terms of time is also difficult or impossible.

For men, an average orgasm of 13 seconds is assumed, for women between 13 and 51 seconds. Shorter or longer, everything is possible. As I said, the experience is very individual. As a comparison: Sitting on a hotplate for three seconds feels like an eternity.

Incidentally, the time to orgasm for women takes an average of 13 minutes.

Do animals also have orgasm?

Yes! And the females also have a clitoris. In some animals, it lies in the vagina. For example with the rabbits. The woman's clitoris was also originally in the vagina. As a result of evolution, the clitoral pearl has migrated to the outside. The clitoris is much more than the pearl. There are still two arms, many nerve endings and vessels. The whole clitoris measures an average of 11 centimeters.

How is orgasm achieved more often, in couple sex or solo?

A study by the University of Bern found that 70.8 percent of the women surveyed achieve orgasm during sexual activities with their partner, often or at all times. When it comes to masturbation, 91.3 percent of the women surveyed often orgasm all the time.

By the way: almost 100 percent of men are involved in couple sex or solo. Why? Men know their own genitals better and have been playing with them from childhood. Even male fetuses masturbate in the womb. Women first have to go on a journey of discovery. It's never too late to pick up a mirror.
