When it comes to the topic of sex, a few of us might feel a little awkward. Let's get the giggles out of the way now, though, because we're about to launch into a pretty frank discussion about the mysterious orgasm. Upon researching this topic of the longest orgasm ever recorded, you're likely to learn many odd facts and baffling statistics about human sexuality that have the potential to intrigue and even frighten.
On average, women only achieve climax about 25% of the time during intercourse, as opposed to men who are closer to over 90%. That's because women usually get there through external stimulation, which isn't always given attention during the act. Sexual behaviourists and psychologists also generally believe that for women, the process has a significantly psychological aspect and so the body and mind have to work simultaneously towards the moment of climax. Of course, most men might believe their partners have always been among the luck 25% - that's because, according to varying studies and surveys, between 70% and 80% of women have admitted to 'faking it'.
With dismal statistics such as this, you'd be forgiven for thinking that for women achieving an orgasm should be cause for celebration, and as such, surely it's a case of the longer the better, right? Not quite. A condition known as “persistent genital arousal disorder” is, in fact, actively debilitating for sufferers. Experiencing symptoms of arousal and climax while trying to conduct normal life is, in fact, almost impossible. While it's a diagnosed disorder, it's difficult to declare an accurate statistic for PGAD because many women don’t seek treatment due to the taboo and potential embarrassment factor of the disorder.
While some may envy the myth of the 30-minute orgasms reportedly experienced by some species in the animal world, the reality really can actually be painful and psychologically disturbing. Outside of the anomalous PGAD disorder, the average orgasm lasts only 6-20 seconds. So how long did the longest recorded orgasm last? The following are the five most intensely enduring moments of sexual pleasure ever recorded.
4 43 Seconds
In 1966, William H. Masters and Virginia E. Johnson were the leading research team in sexual and reproductive studies. From the youngest person to give birth to the fastest orgasms to the longest, Masters and Johnson were there and ready to record.
3 83 Minutes
British woman Elle Anne has an orgasm about every 5 minutes, which averages about 250 a day. Elle Anne shared with the media that any little vibration such as riding in the car or the telephone ringing could set her off into an orgasm. After finally seeing her doctor, she was diagnosed with Permanent Sexual Arousal Disorder (another name for PGAD), and she was prescribed medication to help managed the disorder. Women who suffer like this have had to undergo physical therapy to help relieve symptoms and are typically compelled to abstain from sex. Elle Anne's longest recorded orgasm was an earth-shattering and surely painful 83 minutes.

This poor bride had a video of herself on YouTube twitching uncontrollably while in the hospital, which was recorded by her husband (who was probably feeling a bit proud of himself). After having sex with her husband, this anonymous bride found that she was still enjoying the benefits of the intercourse, until she realized that it wasn’t going away after ten minutes.
2 3 Hours
This story recently took the media by storm after it was featured on the TLC show, “Sex Sent Me to the E.R.” The Seattle-based couple only known as Liz and Eric were getting a little frisky before starting their day and going to work, but an hour after the encounter was over, Liz found that she was still having an orgasm.

An Atlanta, Georgia native by the name of Rachel experiences an orgasm every 30 seconds in her daily life. Her story was featured in the documentary “100 Orgasms a Day”, where she explains that her condition started after she gave birth to her first child. Her husband John has expressed that having a wife with PGAD isn’t as fun as you'd assume. In fact, the disorder has created problems for the couple.
Rachel has had to learn how to control her orgasms and to constantly be aware of her surroundings. She can’t go near her washing machine while it’s on the spin cycle, or it will set her off. Rachel admitted that if she didn't have strict control over her body, she could experience over 100 orgasms a day which can add up to over 8 hours. Rachel and John also learned that sex doesn't always relieve the symptoms but instead, can intensify and aggravate the symptoms.
