This brief article is a reply to Brody and Costa's (2017) commentary on the article ''A critical examination of the relationship between vaginal orgasm consistency and measures of psychological and sexual functioning and sexual concordance in women with sexual dysfunction'' (Therrien & Brotto, 2016). Although I could provide a counter-point to each of the criticisms of our article, I have chosen instead to use this space to remind readers that our understanding of the underlying anatomy of women's orgasms is nascent. In addition, a variety of types of stimulation contribute to whether, how, and how intensely a woman may reach orgasm. Findings on the nature of female orgasm don't ''prove'' or ''disprove'' other findings. Rather they need to be analyzed in the context of the range of contributory variables.
