Practice, Practice, Practice!

It’s commonly agreed among sex therapists that orgasm is more often learned than spontaneous for females. That’s not to say girls never have spontaneous orgasms. Many can and do--even before puberty. However, they might not recognize these experiences as sexual in nature, or they might be discouraged from exploring genital sensations and consequently not develop their orgasmic tendencies. That means a girl who explores her body and experiments with her sexual response is more likely to have orgasmic sex later in life.
