Nothing!: There are a number of women who have never had an orgasm. There area a number of good books regarding female sexuality. I recommend the books by the Drs. Berman (who are sisters). They are easy to read and understand.

No, its common: Many women have a hard time having an orgasm. Some women never do. Some can only have an orgasm through oral or manual stimulation, not with sex. This can be fixed if it bothers you. First get a physical exam to make sure you are normal, ie no hooded clitoris, etc. Then ask for help from a sex therapist. 90+% of 1st orgasms happen with masturbation, so if you have never had one, start with that.

Start with anatomy!: The first thing i'd recommend is to know your own anatomy. Since your clitoris is the main center of sexual stimulation, it's good to know where it is! (and really, how would you know if nobody's ever pointed it out?) you or you and your partner then may wish to experiment to find out what feels good; little by little, it will happen. Look up the classic "for yourself, " by betty dodson. Good luck.
