How many types of orgasm do you know?
Or even more importantly, how many types of orgasm have you experienced?
Statistics paint a rather troublesome picture. Anywhere between 10 and 40 percent of women report having difficulties reaching an orgasm. In most cases, this inability has nothing to do with physiology. Rather, it’s linked to poor body awareness or insufficient stimulation on behalf of a partner.
It’s time to get to know your body like you’ve never before. Women have the power to experience so many kinds of orgasm. With a little bit of self-exploration and some creativity, the sexual climax can be diversified and intensified.
Here are some types of orgasm every woman can have, as well as the best ways to get there.
The good, old clitoral orgasm is probably the easiest one to master.
You obviously know where your clitoris is but how many ways of stimulating that little bud of sensitive tissue have you tried? Applying gentle pressure with your fingers, oral sex and adult toys can all get the job done. Some women are even capable of reaching clitoral orgasm by squeezing their thighs together in a rapid sequence.
A clitoral orgasm is the one you can effortlessly explore and enjoy on your own. In fact, you probably discovered the clitoral orgasm accidentally back in your teen years. If you haven’t perfected your technique since then, however, you’ve missed out on a lot.
When you learn how to stimulate yourself properly and build up the pleasure, you can enjoy a clitoral orgasm lasting up to 30 seconds! For more intense and powerful contractions, learn to stimulate yourself almost to the brink of an orgasm and slow down after (a technique reminiscent of the male edging). Once you decide to let go and cross the finish line, you’ll have one of the most powerful orgasms in your life.
There has been a lot of debate about the existence of the G-spot.
Some medical professionals claim that such a highly sensitive spot of tissue on the front wall of the vagina doesn’t exist.
One thing is certain, however. The clitoris is a much larger structure than what was previously believed. The biggest part of it is internal and you cannot stimulate that through external pressure. Reaching the inner portion of the clitoris is possible through vaginal penetration and more specifically – through G-spot stimulation.
Reaching the G-spot is fairly easy. If you’re using a finger, do the “come hither” motion towards the front wall of the vagina (towards the belly).
If you’re having sex with a partner, some of the best positions for G-spot stimulation include reverse cowgirl, doggy, lifted missionary (put a pillow underneath your butt) and an open-legged spoon.
The market also features specialized toys that are curved just right for G-spot stimulation. A porn star dildo is an example of such a toy that’s big enough and also anatomically correct, which will enable the targeted stimulation of all the right spots.
Are you afraid of giving anal sex or even a bit of anal stimulation a try? If so, you’re missing on a lot. When done gently and when you’re aroused enough, good anal stimulation can bring you to a very powerful orgasm.
The anal region is filled with nerve endings that can register pleasurable touch or penetration.
Once again, the inner portion of the clitoris is quite extensive. This is the reason why anal penetration could actually contribute to an orgasm, even if you’re not touching your clit or stimulating yourself in any other way.
The key to pleasurable anal experiences is patience. You can start out with a finger or smaller toys like a butt plug or anal beads. As you become more used to the sensation, you can take the experiment to the next level and engage in actual anal penetration. But you don’t really have to go there if you don’t want to. Listen to your body and gain some awareness of what feels good. You can continue building upon those experiences.
We’re now entering into advanced orgasmic territory. A blended orgasm isn’t that easy to have but it’s most definitely worth the effort.
The term blended orgasm refers to reaching your climax by having multiple erogenous zones stimulated at the same time. It can occur during double penetration or while a partner is giving you oral sex while also using a vaginal or anal toy on you.
As you’ve probably guessed already, a blended orgasm is a lot more intense than the previous types we’ve discussed. The contractions can be much more powerful and blended orgasms usually last a longer period of time.
Stimulating multiple erogenous zones at the same time increases blood flow to these areas and the brain also registers the pleasurable sensation from all possible directions. This is why the climax happens to be so amazing.
To have a blended orgasm, you need to be fully relaxed. You also need a perfect idea of which erogenous zones on your body are most sensitive. A patient and intuitive lover can also help take your orgasms to the next level.
Chances are that you’ve never heard about this one before but the medical community has recognized a cervical orgasm as a separate category.
As the name suggests, this is a type of orgasm resulting from the stimulation of the cervix. The experience is described as a full-body, very intense climax.
Putting pressure on the cervix in a way that’s sufficient to reach an orgasm is possible through deep penetration. When a woman is aroused enough, cervical stimulation can also be one of the ways to achieve a blended orgasm.
This is a tricky practice. For many, deep penetration that allows the hitting of the cervix can be painful.
If you want to try having a cervical orgasm, you need to be incredibly aroused first. It’s also a good idea to attempt achieving it solo before bringing a partner into the experience. A bigger dildo or a vibrator, plus the right angle of penetration will help you experiment. If you like the feeling, you can try out passionate sex with a partner the next time around.
Female ejaculation is not a myth.
This type of orgasm, called female ejaculation or squirting, leads to the release of liquid from the skene gland. The gland is the female counterpart to the male prostate and it’s been known to produce prostate specific antigen or PSA.
Female ejaculation can be achieved by very intense and prolonged stimulation of the G-spot.
Many women are afraid of this experience because they worry the liquid being released is urine. This isn’t the case. As already mentioned, the source of that moisture is a gland. When properly stimulated, it can contribute to very intense experiences.
Again – you can try female ejaculation orgasms on your own or you can bring a partner into the mix. To get there, you should be exploring this type of climax with someone you trust and feel very comfortable with. Unless you’re properly aroused and in the zone, squirting will be very difficult to achieve. With this method, you know your partner is not faking their orgasm. There won’t be any need for fake cum, but you could still make some if you wanted.
As you can see, female sexual pleasure has so many faces. It can be quick and powerful, it can be prolonged. It can originate from the clit or it can be a full-body experience.
Don’t feel pressured into mastering all these kinds of orgasms. Every woman can climax more easily from one type of stimulation than from another. Just focus on the things that feel good and that bring you to the edge. If you have enough awareness and you experiment with these techniques, you will definitely increase the intensity and frequency of your orgasms. Getting to know your body well will also make those much easier to bring on.
