yea, if they are reading with 1 hand on the book.

If she is holding it in one hand and stimulating herself with the other I suppose. I would admit, though, that I have not actually tried this.

@jamms Beat me, ahem, to it.

Garebo's avatar

Damn, I needed to edit the question to “only”.

asmonet's avatar

Yes, and they need not stimulate themselves with their hands, just as some men do not need to have anything touch their penis to orgasm. Fact.

You learn fast if you ask a poorly constructed question. Now, I will never get the confirmation to a question I always had.

jamms's avatar

despite the bold FACT in asmonet’s answer, I think that you will find that most people require stimulation in order to orgasm. I’m sure this varies on a person my person basis. I don’t think in most situations mental stimulation would be enough. it would however likely kick start the process.

Actually, in my experience, mental stimulation, as in reading a fairly graphic romance novel, is quite enough.

@Darwin that’s true. i know a lot of guys who think with their sexual organ.

Darwin's avatar

@eponymoushipster – You are talking about the brain in the other head.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Darwin as Morrissey said, Most people keep their brains between their legs.

Darwin's avatar

@eponymoushipster – Properly said it should be Most men keep their brains between their legs. Many women keep theirs between their ears

I don’t think so.
I need a lot of mental stimulation, more than physical touch..but I still need the physical aspect to have an orgasm.

asmonet's avatar

@jamms: Notice, I said some. Read closer.

Amoebic's avatar

Not likely! There’s always going to be a few exceptions, but most women can’t have an orgasm without direct and practiced physical manipulation.

jamms's avatar

@asmonet some =/= fact. and your some only applied to men. you said yes as a blanket answer in regards to women. just saying.

asmonet's avatar

Nitpicking. :)

Darwin's avatar

@Amoebic – I am very glad to be one of those exceptions. I suspect that most men don’t realize how superfluous they actually are to the female orgasm.

jamms's avatar

nah, I’m over it now. truce.

asmonet's avatar

Done. :)

Ladies, we’ve all had THOSE dreams and we can usually go right back into them without moving an external muscle. Guys, it would kill you to know what we can do.

dynamicduo's avatar

Spontaneous orgasms can happen to both men and women. A man’s wet dream, for instance. It could also be that the woman is aroused by reading the novel, and a shift in the sitting position causes friction in the clitoral area, thus facilitating an orgasm.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Sure! The mind and the imagination is very powerful.
