July 31st is National Orgasm Day! Yes, there’s a holiday for everything.
While sex and masturbation is not all about reaching that O and more about enjoying yourself, we can’t deny the glory of a great orgasm. To celebrate, here are some fun facts about orgasms that we have discovered on our journey of creating smart vibrators.

Theorgasm gap is simply the difference in frequency of orgasm between men and women. (Stay with me; I know the heteronormativity isn’t ideal but, until recently, most studies mainly surveyed cisgender men and women, many who identified as heterosexual.
