When a woman has an orgasm, her heart rate, breathing and blood pressure increase. A small number of women ejaculate when they orgasm, where a clear fluid spurts from the glands close to the urethra tube trough which you pass water. Orgasms are often followed by a feeling of relaxation.
The clitoral orgasm is the most common. Vaginal orgasm means that a woman can reach orgasm without clitoral stimulation. Most often this is through vaginal penetration.

Why women orgasm has long baffled science, with no apparent biological reason for the cascade of pleasure felt as they reach climax. But researchers now believe it may have evolved in early humans to induce ovulation during sexual intercourse.

In many animals, such as rabbits, ferrets, cats and camels this is still the case, as ovulation happens during sex.
