Holy Orgasms, Batman!

Can we talk about Orgasms? Specifically, MY orgasms? (Those are really the only orgasms of which I am qualified to speak, after all.)

For my whole sexual life I've been a one orgasm gal, except when I'm the one in the driver seat, if ya know what I mean. Anyway, I've been happy with that because that one orgasm has always been a reliable one, and it's always been very intense and satisfying. So, no complaints here!

Lately, though, I have become extremely orgasmic. I don't know if this is because of my age and hormones or if it's a delightful side effect of discontinuing the antidepressant medication I was on for a year that made me almost completely NON-orgasmic. In any case, what I am experiencing is very strange and wonderful.

When making love to my husband I now have several orgasms and he feels like a rock-star! He isn't doing anything differently, so really? I should be the one who gets the rock-star label, but we'll let him have it because we all know how fragile the male ego is. Shhh, it'll be our secret. wink wink.

But the multiple orgasms is not the really strange part. The strange and wonderful thing is I've been having them in my sleep! It's happened a few times now, enough for me to be sure it's not my imagination, because let's face it, women don't have the same evidence of nocturnal emissions as men/boys do, right?

Anyway, I typically have a sexy dream, usually in the morning, I dream the full meal deal, and I wake up breathing heavily, my heart pounding, and a general feeling of "Oh hell yeah!"

If this is a side effect of impending menopause, "impending," meaning "pretty soon" as in, you know, maybe ten years from now, sigh, I guess it's a pretty nice side effect, and one of those reasons I was looking for that would help me embrace the whole no periods thing. I'm just afraid it's temporary, but in the meantime, I'm not complaining!


  1. Oh young one, I hate to rain on your parade; but having sleepgasms is not typical of menopause, I really wish it was. However, I had one myself just a few weeks ago. They are sooo good.

    And unfortunately when your hormones leave the building, most of your libido goes with it. But there can still be good times to be had. Believe it.

  2. I guess I'll just enjoy it while I can. ;-)
