Adventures From The Bedrooms Of African Women

A ‘Hiroshima of Pleasure’

August 8, 2022

A decade ago, Nana Darkoa wrote ‘How can you tell when a woman orgasms?’ for the Adventures blog. It remains one of the most popular posts to date. So, in this episode, Nana and Malaka dig into the mystery and mystique of the orgasm.

“It just feels like something's bubbling under, and then there's an explosion of pleasure,” Kenyan sex educator Kaz says. “It's a Hiroshima of pleasure.”    

We’re talking about everything from science to screaming, politics to peeing. And most importantly, women share what the big O feels like…and give their tips on how to achieve it.
