    I'm an 18 year old girl. I am a virgin and have tried masturbation but have never experienced an orgasm from it. Don't tell me I'm doing it wrong. I've tried everything.

    I don't have an urges to touch myself or anything so I guess that means I have a low sex drive.

    Other than that, I consider myself heterosexual. I can recognise handsome men and definitely feel attracted to and nervous around them in a way that I'm not to women.

    I'm confused. Am I weird? Asexual? Normal? Help!

    Is it possible to not physically be capable of orgasming?

    It's totally normal. Try reading this

    It's more difficult for women than it is for guys. Some women don't reach one until they're 40. For some it's easier than others. You just need to be patient and figure it out yourself.

    That's helpful, thanks. I don't feel as though I'm missing out on much, so I guess it doesn't bother me.

    Don't worry about it too much
    Porn and media make it seem like just putting something in will make you get one when you haven't had one it's not something you miss. When you have one, you'll also know how to achieve another one. So just take your time

    Thanks again. Haha it seems like such a silly thing to worry about.

    tbh you could be asexual but i think it's more likely you just have a low sex drive. same with me really, never cared much for sex but if i was with someone i really cared about i'd probably want to have sex with them but it wouldn't be a big deal for me whether we did or not

    There is an enormous pile of crap out there about orgasms.

    It is possible that sexual activity is not something you're interested in and you're asexual, but while considering that have a read of 'Thanks for Coming: One Young Woman's Quest for an Orgasm' (about three pounds on Amazon s/h).
