I think so. Of course you can't go up to a female chimp and say "did
the trees move for you?", but there are a collection of physiological
changes associated with orgasm in human females (increased pulse,
respiration, sweating, flushed skin, vaginal secretions etc) and we
can look for these in animals. ISTR they have been found in chimps.
