Is it possible to have multiple orgasms?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

It is possible for some people, especially women, to have multiple orgasms within a short period of time. In most cases, after a person experiences an orgasm they must take a break in which they stop sexual activity and return to a "neutral" level of sexual arousal before they can experience another orgasm. However, some people are able to have another orgasm before their arousal level decreases. The ability to have multiple orgasms depends on many factors, including physical stimulation and emotional interest. Obviously, these factors can vary depending on the specific encounter, so even if a woman is able to have multiple orgasms, she might not have multiple orgasms every time she has sex. In rare cases, men may be able to have multiple orgasms, though it's far more common among women.
