What was your first orgasm like?

“I suppose I didn’t even know what an orgasm was until I turned 27. I have had several sexual partners, but none of them managed to pleasure me the way I liked, and that’s why I never really had a real orgasm. I’ve faked it so many times that I didn’t even know what it meant. But finally, I met a man (my current boyfriend) who is quite experimental in the bedroom, and he made my wish come true.” – Prerna Suresh, 29

“Just like any other woman I got to know that there is a thing that exists called orgasm when I was in my late 20s. Frankly speaking, it is so embarrassing. But when I understood what an orgasm is, I was shocked. I realised that OMG I have not actually experienced it, even after my sexual encounters. But I experienced my first orgasm after watching porn and trust me it felt so liberating and in one word it was bliss.” – Nikita Bhardwaj, 32

“I belong to a family that is super religious, so I was often made to believe that anything to do with sex is a sin. So, I was deprived of any such joy for the longest time. My friends knew my misery, which is why they gave me a vibrator. Can’t tell you how it changed my life. When I first orgasmed, it just felt so awesome. I think I slept so well that night, and then many nights, after every use.” Kinjal Sharma, 25

“This is going to raise a lot of eyebrows. But I actually got my first orgasm by using a shower head. I mean it turned me on and how. Sounds pretty crazy, I know. But it was all worth it.” – Aashi Sinha, 21

“I’ve been someone who loves sex. Now, it might sound funny, but I have always been vocal about sharing my sexual fantasies with my partners, and that has helped. So, I remember I was travelling and met someone on an airplane. We got talking and the conversation became sexual in nature. We couldn’t help ourselves and ended up having sex in the bathroom. That orgasm was crazy I have to say, and my first one too!.” – Priya Kukreja, 34

“I remember I had broken up with my boyfriend, because we were not sexually compatible. In fact, during our three-year-old relationship, I had never experienced an orgasm. But I remember I was out with my friends for a night out, and I met a guy. Although he turned out to be a rebound, the sex was great. We tried various sex positions that night, and trust me, I haven’t felt as good ever.” – Ayesha Swarnim, 38
