Sex Q&A: Should I Be Worried if My Husband Doesn't Orgasm?

Q.

The Nest Q&ASometimes my husband doesn't orgasm. I feel abnormal, but he insists it's him and not me. Is there anything I can do?

A.

Actually, a lot of men don't reach orgasm all the time. In fact, it's a sexual myth that men always orgasm -- even if they don't suffer from erectile dysfunction (E.D.). If their erection is functioning, there are many reasons why this can happen -- from alcohol to drugs to feeling tired or stressed.

In your husband's case, he might insist that it's his problem, but if it makes you concerned, it's your problem too! Let him know that you'll do anything you can to help, because you want him to feel as much pleasure as possible. Reassure him that sex is also about sensual touching and foreplay; it's not always about the orgasm. Then leave it be. You can only say so much; then relax about it yourself. In the meantime, try to ensure that you both get quality time together and are well rested before you have sex.
