orgasm

The sequence of bodily, and especially genital, processes, occurring at the climax of sexual intercourse, and involving the pleasurable release of heightened muscle tension followed by the decline of TUMESCENCE in erectile tissue. Most sexual activity becomes focused on the achievement of orgasm-an inherent property making for species survival. Almost all males are capable of experiencing orgasm; females are less fortunate. Only about 14 percent of females always have orgasm during intercourse; 32 percent achieve it on no more than a quarter of occasions; 34 percent can achieve usually it by masturbation; and 16 percent never achieve orgasm.
