Losing Your Orgasm Virginity

Thanks to the new book Thanks For Coming: One Young Woman's Quest For An Orgasm, the topic of the elusive female orgasm is back in the news. Maura Altman, the author of the book, lost her virginity at 17, but didn't lose her orgasm virginity until 26, when she finally decided to buy a vibrator.

The 377-page overshare inspired a lady writer over at the Daily Beast to one-up Maura by sharing that she didn't have her first orgasm until the age of 30 — so, ha!

Both these women experienced a gap between when they lost their virginity and when they reached climax because they had an aversion to masturbation. Once they got over it, newly purchased vibrators almost instantaneously took their orgasm virginities.

When did you lose your orgasm virginity? Anyone out there still waiting?

When I masturbated for the first time, unconsciously, I was 13, and I had an orgasm. Only then I didn't know what was going on with my body. :) I was shy. I am a 19 year old virgin but I've long lost my orgasm virginity.

I'm 20 and I still haven't lost my virginity yet (not in a rush either), but I lost my "orgasm virginity" when I was 16. It took 4 months of practice though (sorry if that's TMI), don't be discouraged if it doesn't happen right away for you.

I had my first O around fourteen by myself, but my boyfriend is able to create the same effect so I'm lucky.

I lost my orgasm virginity (via penetration) 6 months after I've started to have sex with my ex-fiancee (of course I've had orgasm before via masturbation).

I had my first full on orgasm when I was 21 while masturbating, but had had minor experiences before that (not the full blown fireworks, but I knew something had happened). I still haven't climaxed through intercourse alone, though I've been close a few times. I have to 'facilitate' the process in order to have one.
