Orgasm and lesbian sociality

Orgasm is often seen as the most sensational aspect of sex, and, seemingly, it never ceases to fascinate. The female and the male orgasm hold different positions in research as well as in public debate, and the orgasm has been object of discussion within the feminist movement. This article is about sex and especially the female orgasm related to difference and power issues that feminism has raised over the last 30 years. In an attempt to bring new arguments and perspectives into account, empirical material, mainly consisting of interviews with lesbians, is analysed. This article discusses power issues in lesbian sex, and the main focus is on differences and power connected to the production of orgasmic sex. By extension of the analysis the author raises questions to be discussed in a heterosexual context.
