It started with an innocent enough question: "Why is it difficult for men to give women orgasms," asked Twitter user @Vivaciosness. It's a reasonable question and rightly so.

For too long, women have been at the receiving end of the orgasm gap (no pun intended), and we're no closer to discovering the holy grail of instant sexual gratification for the female species.

"I had sex for a long time before I got one. But what is the issue here? Let's chat," concluded @Vivaciosness.

Our favourite doctor, @sindivanzyl, was quick to jump in with some suggestions of her own. 

And according to Dr Sindisiwe van Zyl, orgasms are not only born from penetration. Stimulation plays a big part as well.


Feminist Twitter came out in their droves in support of the good doctor's sound advice. Some even had some tips of their own.
