4. Body image issues

Body dysmorphia is a psychiatric disorder in which a person becomes obsessed with even very slight imperfection in their body or a flaw in their mind which actually doesn't exist. This condition makes a person go much beyond disliking a particular part of the body and this fixation can come in way of reaching an orgasm. The ideal of having an orgasm is to ease yourself and let it happen.

5. Having unrealistic expectations

Pornography or even the intimacy displayed in films can be the reason behind this. People tend to believe that orgasms feel exactly the same way as it is features in such films, and this can actually lead to miss their own orgasm in real life. It has to be noted that not every woman can have multiple orgasms and neither can everyone have obvious orgasms.
