Expert Q & A Answers About vaginal orgasm

Why can I only orgasm with anal sex? Are vaginal orgasms possible?

My boyfriend and I have started exploring anal sex...and it seems that I can only climax through anal sex. Any ideas why this might be? I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but in my previous relationship my partner was performing oral on me and bit my clitoris. It seemed to decrease feeling for a while...could that be the reason?

I’m a quad woman and I’ve only been able to have an orgasm from manual stimulation. Am I missing something?

I’m a woman and – due to muscular dystrophy – I’m a quadriplegic who uses a ventilator. I’ve also had a hysterectomy. Both of these changes came before I started sexual activity…so I can’t compare “before” and “after.” I’ve only ever had an orgasm from manual stimulation instead of intercourse. That’s great, but am I missing something?
