The clitoris is the go-to sweet spot for most women when they want to experience the pleasure and release of an orgasm. But while clitoral orgasms may be the most accessible kind, this tiny, mostly hidden bliss button is highly individualistic. Every woman prefers a different types of touch here to reach climax.
The clitoris is a very sensitive part of a woman’s anatomy, composed of millions of nerve endings similar to that of the penis. Having it touched, caressed, or stroked via direct or indirect stimulation (in other words, through fabric, or by touching the labia surrounding the clitoris) prompts an increase in blood flow to the area, making the clitoris engorged and in need of release.
several types of clitoral strokes (think up-and-down, back-and-forth, and both wide and small circles) can lead to orgasm. Experiment on your own and show your partner what you like. If clitoral orgasms don't come easy for you or you're having trouble reaching climax, consider looking into sex toys designed with clitoral orgasm in mind, such as a mini vibrator you or your partner can wear on your fingertips.
Your G-spot is on the front wall of your vagina, about halfway between your vaginal opening and cervix. It's not something you can see but you can usually feel it; insert a finger into your vagina and press forward (making a come-hither motion). You should detect a slightly bumpy or ridged are. For some women, it feels spongy.
Pressing this spot gently and stroking it lightly is what many women do to prime themselves for a G-spot orgasm, also known as a vaginal orgasm. When you’re sexually aroused, the G-spot will fill with blood and swell up. Touching it in a way that feels good to you with fingers, your partner's penis, or a vibrator can trigger what many women describe as a deeply intense, shaken-to-the-core kind of climax.
Anal sex or anal play isn't every woman's cup of tea. Some love it and others don't care for it at all. But if you're in the former category (or you've never tried it before and think you might be), an anal orgasm is one you should know about.
Because the anus and rectum are so close to the vagina and clitoris—and are connected by a thin stretch of tissue called the perineum—they share many of the same nerves and muscles, including the PC (or pelvic floor) muscle. The PC muscle is highly sensitive for many women, and stimulating it can trigger a vaginal orgasm—and an anal one as well.
Still not sure about this one? Take it from the many women who do report having orgasms from anal sex. But this type of sex does come with risks that are important to consider before you try it. Safe sex is a must for you and your partner.
Deep vaginal erogenous zone orgasm
The clitoris and G-spot aren't the only pleasure buttons below the belt. Real women as well as sex researchers say that there are additional erogenous zones inside the vagina that when touched the right way can lead to what's collectively known as a deep vaginal orgasm.
First comes the A-spot, located on the high front (or anterior) wall of the vagina just beneath the cervix. Next is the O-spot (for orgasm), which can be found on the back wall of the vagina, almost behind the cervix. You can’t see these when you look at a vagina. But the ligaments here contain nerves that appear to be highly sensitive for many women. If fingers, a toy, or a penis fills the vagina enough at the high end of it and those nerves are really stimulated, it can be very, very pleasurable, she believes. It could cause the whole uterus to contract during an orgasm—there can be massive contractions in the whole area.
Squirting orgasm Yes, female ejaculation really exists; it's the hallmark of this type of orgasm. Sometimes when women are sexually aroused or stimulated there is an expulsion of fluid from the glands around the urethra or anterior surface of the vagina during or before orgasm, though it’s still hotly contested where the fluid actually comes from. The fluid is typically clear and doesn't resemble urine, and there can be a moderate amount released or a full-on gush. RELG-spot stimulation is the type of touching that typically leads to squirting. But caressing and teasing the area surrounding the urethra has also been known to result in a soak-the-sheets climax. No one really knows the exact number of women who experience a squirting orgasm, so with that uncertainty in mind, it was found that 10-50% of women have, at one time or another, had a 'gushing' moment during orgasm. Cervical orgasm You might only think of your cervix in terms of a pelvic exam or pregnancy, but it can be a major erogenous zone as well and produce its own unique kind of orgasm. It’s not something every woman will experience, since the cervix can also be too sensitive to direct touch. But cervical stimulation is linked to strong, intense orgasms. It's best to try a cervical orgasm when you're super aroused and have had lots of foreplay, which can make your cervix more receptive to touch. Try having your partner use slow, deep strokes, or if his penis is too much, use fingers or a vibrator. Just don't push it if it's not working for you—there are plenty of other ways to experience an O. Nipple orgasm You know your breasts and nipples are major erogenous zones; your nipples especially react to being touched and stroked, since they're loaded with nerve endings and super sensitive skin. But some women really can experience a big O just by having their nipples caressed and kissed. There's no clear consensus on how many women are able to orgasm without any below the belt contact, and researchers aren't sure why nipple orgasms happen. But hey, if the idea appeals to you, you could have a lot of fun trying to figure it out. With enough kissing, sucking, and caressing, “these are zones that can bring some woman to orgasm. Exercise orgasm/coregasm Reaching climax while engaged in a toughworkout may sound a little strange. But workout-induced orgasms, or coregasms, are real. A study from Indiana University found that 370 of 530 women surveyed had experienced orgasm or sexual pleasure while working out, usually from core-based exercises. One of the ways to induce an orgasm is to super-squeeze your PC muscles and you can develop them and make them stronger. If someone has very well developed PC muscles and during exercises they really start to contract them, I think orgasms are absolutely possible during that. But most women will need some type of clitoral and/or vaginal stimulation to go along with that if they want to see stars as well.
Sleep orgasm We've had sensual dreams before. But this is a whole other thing. Some women can have an orgasm during an erotic dream while sleeping. One report indicates that 37% of women have had one of these sleep orgasms by the time they’re 45, but it’s difficult to know how common they really are. Sleep orgasms usually start with a sexy dream, which causes increased blood flow to the genitals as well as major relaxation, which somehow allows the body to reach orgasm while a woman isn't even awake. Multiple orgasms You can't have too much of a good thing, right? That's the appeal of multiple orgasms, something women can indulge in because unlike men, females don't experience a refractory period after climaxing that requires some downtime before gearing up for round two. Women reach a certain heightened state of ecstasy with their first orgasm, and then can stay up there on this plateau. With more and more simulation, they can have multiple orgasms.Many women do experience this, but not every woman will want to.
