What gets in the way of multiple orgasm?

Overstimulation, for one. What I mean is, you can rub your arm so that it feels numb and irritated, and then, with the passage of time, the numbness goes away. It’s the same with sexual parts. You can stimulate the clit so much that it needs a break. Fortunately, we’re sexually adaptive creatures, you can stimulate the G-spot, the anus, the breasts, or whatever other part generates sexual tension for you under sexy circumstances.

 Also, for many women, orgasm is hard work. It takes concentration and effort and sometimes you’re just beat afterward. Getting the energy to have another orgasm might just be not worth the effort. Don’t forget -- even having just one orgasm is great! Multiple, extended, and all the other variations on orgasm are totally unnecessary to having a happy, healthy, fully functional sex life. It’s entertainment -- a hobby, like going dancing or putting together a model airplane. Enriching, sure, but necessary for your health? Nah.
