Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Raymond
The beginning of adolescence and puberty is not the easiest time for kids. There are so many questions and concerns as bodies begin to change and develop, and sometimes these questions are not the easiest to ask. This book sets out to answer many of the questions, from what is the best birth control to whether or not the reader should try alcohol. The book looks at sexually transmitted diseases as well as depression. The answers are simple and honest without focusing on a specific gender or sexual preference. The author also does a nice job dealing with issues that may interfere with people’s values and beliefs. This is a great go-to for teenagers that do not have a trusted adult they can talk with or if they are just too embarrassed to ask. With over 100 questions in an easy to read format, most issues or concerns are addressed and there are resources listed where a person could go to find more in-depth answers to some of their questions. Reviewer: Sarah Raymond; Ages 11 up.

What does an orgasm feel like?

You’ve asked one of the most common questions teens have, so be assured you’re not alone in wondering.

An orgasm is the emotional and physical sensations that are felt at the end of sexual arousal when built-up muscle tension in the body is released. Put simply, it is the climax of the sensations that have been brought about by sexual excitement. Having an orgasm is also sometimes called “cumming.”

If you ask ten people what an orgasm feels like, you might get ten different answers because orgasms are unique to each person. For some people, an orgasm involves the whole body—the heart races, the person may vocalize sounds or words, the muscles throughout the body may twitch, breathing can be heavy, and the person may feel flushed. For others, the feeling is more concentrated and remains in the areas of the vagina or penis. Although an orgasm will feel different to each person, it is a pleasurable feeling and often associated with euphoria and excitement. It has been described as feeling like a very strong tingling, pleasant and pulsating muscle contractions, or a warm throbbing.

When I have sex the first time, will people be able to tell?

No. Although you may feel like everybody knows, they likely won’t. You won’t look any different, and there will be no outward physical signs that you’ve had sex. You may, however, feel differently because having sex for the first time is such a big decision, both emotionally and physically. Unless you act differently, however, it is unlikely that anybody will know.

Can a girl get pregnant even if she doesn’t orgasm?

Absolutely. A girl can get pregnant whether or not she has an orgasm. That a girl can avoid getting pregnant by not having an orgasm is one of the biggest myths among teens. An orgasm, or lack of one, does not affect whether or not a girl can become pregnant.

What does affect a girl’s ability to get pregnant is whether or not she is ovulating. Once a month a girl ovulates, which means her body releases an egg.1 If the egg is fertilized with a guy’s sperm, it may eventually develop into a baby. The timing of the release of the egg (ovulation) is based upon the girl’s menstrual cycle, or period.

Remember, lack of an orgasm has no effect on whether or not an egg is released. So, yes, a girl can get pregnant even if she doesn’t orgasm.
