Multiple Pathways to a Woman’s Orgasm

Posted on

Dr. Kathy Maupin and Brett Newcomb discuss the anatomy of female orgasms and what current scientific thought believes to be true on the subject.

We went to England this year to promote our book, The Secret Female Hormone. We had a wonderful time meeting physicians and patients and we found the English press to be very receptive to our message. We had an opportunity to be interviewed on Radio Free Europe and in the News Press.

As a result sustained interest in bioidentical testosterone pellets for hormone replacement, we have been monitoring the English press to know where the focus of interest lies. We found an article in the London Daily Mail written by Madeline Davies (who we met) about orgasms in women. Her article was in conflict with what we know to be true both from my patients and from the bountiful research done by researchers in the US.

Ms. Davies’ article reviewed an unidentified scientific study that claimed that women do not possess multiple sites that could stimulate orgasm, but that the clitoris is the only area sensitive enough to produce an orgasm.

Because of the research that we have done while writing our book, we were in a unique position to dispute that article. We have become familiar with the work of Dr. Beverly Whipple and Dr. Komisaruk who have each done extensive research on the orgasmic process in women.

This week, Brett Newcomb and I take on the allegation that women can only get an orgasm from clitoral stimulation. We wrote a rebuttal to the British Huffington Post that challenged the Daily Mail article. Our article was published in the Lifestyle section of the Huffing Post England on December 2, 2014. We hope you will go there and read the article in its entirety and that you will listen to our podcast this week to learn about the multiple types and anatomic sites that can stimulate an orgasm in women.
