    As a “lay” sex educator (pardon the pun), I talk about the legs of the clitoris imbedded behind the walls of the vagina. As the first third of the vaginal walls become tight due to sexual arousal, it brings the legs closer to the penis or whatever is inserted into the vagina, thereby increasing the chances of them being stimulated enough to achieve orgasm through intercourse. I also say that only one out of five women can experience orgasm that way. Of course, I add that not being able to achieve orgasm through intercourse does not make her any less of a woman. Am I correct in my assessment of one of the ways a woman can achieve orgasm through intercourse?
