Learn the difference between an intentional vs. unintentional ruined orgasm and what it all means.

Though a ruined orgasm might sound like it has a simple definition — an orgasm that is ruined or halts before full climax – it can have multiple meanings. Some ruined orgasms are intentional, while others are not and can leave one feeling sexually frustrated. Those that are unintentional can also have multiple causes, both physical and emotional, which vary from person to person.

To get to the bottom of what can cause a ruined orgasm, the difference between an intentional and unintentional ruined orgasm, and how to stop having unintentional ruined orgasms, we reached out to healthcare providers and experts to get professional advice on everything to do with ruined orgasms. 

Physical causes of an unintentional ruined orgasm: 

Dr. Jeffcoat tells O.school that those who experience pain during sex often deal with ruined orgasms. They may often be dismissed by medical providers with statements such as “It’s all in your head,” or “It’s a normal part of aging.” However, Dr. Jeffcoat states that a ruined orgasm can be caused by the following physical conditions: 

  1. Vaginismus (involves muscle spasms in the pelvic floor muscles)
  2. Vulvodynia (chronic, unidentified vulvar pain)
  3. Vestibulodynia (chronic, unidentified pain in the vestibule area of the vulva
  4. Endometriosis (a painful disorder caused by tissue that lines the uterus growing outside of the uterus) 
  5. Interstitial cystitis (a chronic, painful bladder condition, now called painful bladder syndrome.
  6. Dysorgasmia (painful orgasms) 
  7. Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
  8. Postcoital pain
  9. Nerve entrapment (in more severe cases)

      Months after giving birth, it was difficult for me to go from a sitting or lying position up to a full standing position without feeling that I had to remain hunched over until a bit of time had passed to get fully upright. However, after taking Heather’s course, I learned exercises to get my body back to normal. She also showed me correct ways to lift and carry my son as well as put him in/take him out of the carseat and stroller. This class was really beneficial and Heather is a wonderful...

      I can’t speak highly enough of Nancy, and how much she has helped me grow, discover, and love my body. I had had painful sex for my entire life, and didn’t know that there was anything that could be done about it. It was at the point where my husband and I were not having sex for MONTHs, because it was just too frustrating, and I hated feeling like I was the ONLY woman out there who had this problem, especially at my age. I finally brought it up to my doctor because I was turning 40 and my...
