The term derived from the Greek ‘an’ (without, not), the Greek ‘orgasmos’ (swell) and the Greek and Latin ‘ia’ (a suffix used in the names of ailments). Also known as orgasmic disorder, orgasmic dysfunction, and orgasmic inhibition. Anorgasmia is failure to achieve orgasm during sex. It can result from many causes such as anxiety, stress, fatigue, worry, guilt, fear of painful intercourse, fear of pregnancy, the dislike of a partner, the dislike of a setting, the use of alcohol, etc. In women, this problem is also referred to as “frigidity”, or female orgasmic dysfunction. There are two major types of anorgasmia: primary anorgasmia – when a person has never had an orgasm by any method, including masturbation, and secondary anorgasmia – when a person has had orgasms previously but is not having them currently.
