orgasm in Arabic

Google and Wikipedia offer a few different translations:

هزة الجماع

النشوة الجنسية

رعشة الجماع

The 1962-1963 ELIAS English Arabic dictionary (XIII printing) gives us:


تهيج جنسي

and هزة الجماع again.




The 1979 Al-Mawrid Al-Muyassar by Dar El-Ilm Lil-Malayeen (which I must have been particularly fond of when i was a little girl for its photographs and illustrations) forgoes an entry entirely.



Do you know any words for orgasm in Arabic? Colloquialisms? Slang? Please tell me! Even if they are not scientific words, certainly words worth knowing!

I’d like to do research on the concept in Arabic and Islamic sources.
