5 Reasons You Can't Orgasm

Having trouble getting over the edge? Find out what sabotages your chances of climaxing, and learn how to deal with it.

1. Your guy annoyed you.

You may have trouble feeling intimate (i.e. orgasmic) with him until you've addressed what's been bothering you.

2. You're trying too hard.

Worrying about when you're going to climax takes you out of the moment. Try instead to focus on the physical sensations you and your guy are creating.

3. You're on medicine.

Some meds, like the Pill and antidepressants, can affect hormone levels and neurotransmitters, making orgasm difficult to achieve.

4. You pigged out.

5. You smoke.

Smoking reduces circulation, and orgasms require boosted blood flow to the genitals. One more reason to kick butts!
