Primary Anorgasmia is when you’ve never reached a sexual climax in your sex life

Secondary Anorgasmia is when you often have problems reaching orgasm, maybe, it always takes a long time.

General Anorgasmia is when you’re not able to reach climax under intense sexual stimulation, even if you’re sexually excited.

Situation Anorgasmia is when you’re only able to reach sexual climax under specific circumstances, maybe only when you watch porn videos.

General anorgasmia and situational anorgasmia are the 2 commonest forms of orgasmic disorder.
