It is something quite intriguing to think about. ‘We’, meaning us as a mammalian species, did NOT have orgasms, male or female, to begin with. Way, way back all reproduction was asexual. Then somehow ‘sex’, as in two partners coming together to exchange DNA, came to be — though it is fairly clear that ‘orgasms’ per se could not have been there at first, since the mechanism for orgasming is a fairly complex process.
If you think about it, even for a second, it should become clear that we have absolutely no way of finding out as to when orgasms came to be in terms of sex. All we know is that it happened a long time ago.
