Expert Q & A Answers About orgasm and sex

I can orgasm from masturbation but not from intercourse. What’s going on?

I’m a woman and I can’t orgasm during intercourse, although I can achieve orgasm by masturbation. My partner and I love each other a lot, but our lives have been really stressful lately. I have a low sex drive and I’m feeling depressed about unemployment. How can I enjoy sex with my partner again?

Why can’t I have an orgasm with sex?

For some reason, my partner – whom I love a lot and who I think is unbelievably sexy – can’t make me cum. Actually, no one has ever been able to make me cum...I always have to rub myself to finish me. Why? And can I do anything about it? I have no problem going for 4+ hours because I just don't feel any extreme pleasure. I've also noticed all of the things I've gotten from women don't feel good. The experience is sexy, but the feeling just isn’t there...can you help?
