YES!  There is no rule to how many orgasms a person can or should have in one day. 

There is nothing wrong with wanting to orgasm every day. Orgasms can make you feel good, relaxed, excited, energized, satisfied, attractive, connected, a bunch of other fabulous sensations—who wouldn’t want to experience one every day?

As Marilyn Monroe said, “Think of [an orgasm as] a light switch with a rheostat control. As you begin to turn it on, the bulb begins to get bright, then brighter, and brighter and finally in a blinding flash is fully lit. It is so good…”

As far as having an orgasm every day—if you have the time, the desire, the privacy, and/or a willing partner, then go for it. There is no medical reason not to. It won’t hurt your body, make you crazy, or inflict any other bizarre rumors you may have heard.

When is it not “ok” to orgasm every day? When/if you become obsessed. If  you get to the point where orgasms are all you can think about, you alter plans to ensure they happen, and your life is negatively affected by them, then that’s something to examine.
