Anorgasmia or Coughlan’s syndrome or frigidity is a type of sexual dysfunction in which a person fails to achieve an orgasm, even after ample sexual stimulation and excitement.
Anorgasmia is a common occurrence in females as compared to males. Orgasms vary in frequency and intensity, and the amount of stimulation needed to reach them is different in different individuals. Post-menopausal women usually face the problem of anorgasmia, which could eventually lead to sexual frustration. In males, anorgasmia is most closely associated with delayed ejaculation despite an ability to have a suitable erection.
Past research indicates that about 10 to 40% of adult American women face problems in achieving orgasms.
