Women have a wide array of erogenous zones. This female characteristic is extremely complex, resulting in questions to what causes the orgasm and what different variations there are, along with the ejaculation fluid that sometimes results from it. The goal of an orgasm is to reach a climactic peak. There are four common types of orgasms: regular, multiple, extended, and expanded orgasms.
