Dr Sherry Ross says there has long been a gender bias in the way women's sexual dysfunction has been treated compared to men's. One of the most glaring is female orgasms.

Orgasmic dysfunction is when a woman either cannot reach orgasm, or has trouble reaching orgasm when she is sexually excited. When sex is not enjoyable, it can become a chore instead of a satisfying, intimate experience for both partners. Sexual desire may decline, and sex may occur less often.
