The 10 different types of female orgasm that will take you for a wild ride
Buckle up, because we’re showing you all the ways you can reach that spectacular climax you’ve always dreamed of.
At times, seeking sexual pleasure can feel like an uphill battle. It’s as if you’re climbing a mountain shrouded in low-hanging clouds, at least with the way your skin bathes in a layer of perspiration.
Don’t sweat it, though! You don’t always have to spread your legs to get to the top. No need to test the vigor of your fingers, grappling whatever you can get your hands on just to reach the peak.
There’s no single road to get an orgasm. In fact, it isn’t always about the destination. The journey itself makes the biggest difference.
Allow us to show you a guide for every route you can take, people you can have aboard, and tools you might need along the way. Put on your seatbelts for a wild ride— we have a lot of ground to cover.
Playing your parts
How can you enjoy your wonderful trip if you don’t know what you’re driving? These types of orgasms will help you discover every inch of your body and what it does for you.
See what happens if you put the key in the ignition. What does it feel like to push this button? Whether you’re going fast or slow, don’t just dip your toes. Dive in— the deeper you go, the bigger the splash.
1. Clitoral orgasm
Under the hood, you’ll find the head of the clitoris, the only part of your body whose sole purpose is to give you pleasure. Don’t be fooled by its deceivingly small shape. It’s actually a four-inch (10 cm) sexual organ that extends within your pelvis!
If you want to stimulate it, the best way to do so is to run your fingers, palm, or someone else’s tongue over it in circular or back and forth motions. It’s the easiest way to climax if you need a quick stress reliever… especially when you’ve just had a bumpy ride.
2. Vaginal orgasm
Ah, yes, the classic route to hit the Big O… or so they say. One survey does show that while penetration is highly satisfying for men, women might differ— more than 4 out of 5 say that intercourse alone isn’t going to cut it for them.
That’s not to downplay the vagina and its knack for deep, pulsating rhythms. The vaginal orgasm is within reach for the penis, especially through sex positions like spooning.
Or better yet, get your hands dirty by using your own curved sex toy or fingers. All you have to do is make a “come hither” motion towards the side of your belly. If you continuously stimulate your G-spot, you might just ejaculate, thanks to your paraurethral glands.
3. Anal orgasm
If you don’t want to drive a stick in the front seat, you can always try riding from the back. It’s always possible for women to do, even though men tend to get off easier that way because of their prostate gland.
You can stimulate the outside of your anus with your fingers. Feel free to enter from the backdoor too. Just don’t forget to apply lots of lube while at it because your ass doesn’t naturally produce its lubrication, unlike your vagina. Trust us, don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!
4. Erogenous zone orgasm
There are other erogenous zones in your body apart from your genitals, though these require a little bit more tinkering and experimentation.
For instance, you can orgasm from a trail of kisses from the base of your jaw down to your collarbones. The sensations of a tongue swirling around your nipple trapped in between teeth might also do wonders for you. And you may not believe it, but some have found release from a finger skillfully fondling the insides of their knees.
Ever wondered how many erogenous zones you could have? We counted 15 pleasure spots, right from the scalp on your head to the tips of your toes.
It’s different for every person, but discovering these small gems can offer a lot of variety for your sexy time. The best way to find yours? Use any light fluffy object like a feather and hover it dangerously low above all possible erogenous zones. It’s definitely a fun, exploratory activity in and of itself!
5. Fantasy orgasm
Yes, it’s possible to achieve orgasm with just your imagination. Talk about mind over matter! According to Prof. Alan Kiley, a leading sex expert in the UK, the female sexuality is actually more complex and emotionally driven.
“For many people, and women in particular, the mind plays an even more important role,” Kiley stressed.
No wonder 40% of women report having difficulties getting an orgasm. We might be focusing too much on bodily reactions without much regard for our mind, as well as our relationships with our partners.
Coming into your senses
Now that you already have an idea of where you get turned on, you can focus on how to let your journey play out. Whether you’re doing this to relax, relieve some pent-up frustrations, or simply have fun by yourself, you’ll find the right kind of orgasm just for you.
6. Relaxation orgasm
As its name implies, the relaxation orgasm can be achieved by getting into a relaxed state while you’re being sexually stimulated. It’s all about alleviating your muscle tension and letting go of control.
Take it from Dr. Alex Comfort, the author of the book The New Joy of Sex: Keep yourself still, and let your partner take the wheel for this one. If you’re still feeling a bit tense, ask for a massage or a bit of foreplay to release the knots in your system. Go completely limp as the orgasm builds up and eventually peaks.
But before you can sit down and relax, you need to make sure that your environment facilitates the right frame of mind. Pencil it in during a lazy Sunday morning, an otherwise uneventful evening, or even a romantic vacation. That way, sinking into an unbothered mood can be a lot easier for you.
7. Pressure orgasm
Going for a solo trip? All you need is something soft to press against as you rock back and forth, like some ladies. Or you can do well with just crossing your legs; try to squeeze your thighs together until you orgasm.
Try dry humping with your partner by rubbing your genitals against any part of their body, whether you’re fully or partially clothed.
As unlikely as this sounds, there are women who have admitted to getting an orgasm while horseback riding, cycling, and even working out their quads and inner thighs. So indeed, a pressure orgasm isn’t out of the realm of possibilities. It doesn’t always come easy for every woman, though.
8. Tension orgasm
You could say this one is a cult favorite, so much that it’s most commonly depicted in literature. Tensed jaw, taut muscles, breath held until the moment of release— does this sound familiar to you? Anything that involves direct stimulation while your body feels tight contributes to the tension orgasm.
Don’t know how to get there just yet? No worries, all you need is a couple of Kegel balls to help tense up your pubococcygeus (PC) muscles, which support your pelvic floor. This increases blood flow to your genitals and gets you more aroused.
The more, the merrier
Can’t choose among your many options? Who says you need to stick to just one? Get the most fun out of your sexy time by either mixing it up or getting them one after the other.
9. Combination (blended) orgasm
No two types of orgasm feel exactly the same, which is why you’ll find it more satisfying to put them together and see what happens. All you have to do is simultaneously arouse different pleasure spots— particularly your G-spot and clit— and voilà! You’ll have the best of both worlds in the combination orgasm.
Don’t forget to add some PC muscle contractions, pelvic thrusting, and deep breathing into your foreplay mix for one hell of a ride. How about pulling a rabbit vibrator out of your hat for this magic trick?
Adding these things together can only mean you’re in for a bigger treat. You deserve it for all that hard work!
10. Multiple orgasms
Want to get more bang for your buck? You can always work towards multiple orgasms or a series of climaxes in a short period of time. That’s possible for us women because, unlike men, our bodies don’t need a refractory period or a resting state after each orgasm.
Dr. Rachel Carlton Abrams, the author of The Multi-Orgasmic Woman, has some tips and tricks to share. For one, ladies achieve orgasm quicker through the clit, especially when stimulated orally. Never skip on the foreplay. It preps you for more hot stuff ahead!
After your first orgasm, take a quick break before jumping back in. This time, experiment with different positions, then stick to one that hits your G-spot just right. Be sure to get all hands on deck; the more body parts are stimulated, the more you’re likely to hit it big.
Of course, every woman’s body is unique. That’s why orgasms would feel different for each one of us too. So don’t let anyone else’s preferences dictate your own. Allow yourself to explore every single path to pleasure, relishing each one until you find what you love the most.
The climb may seem daunting, but as they say, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Are all orgasms made the same?
Not really! For instance, the localized thrums of your clit can feel very different from the deep, rumbly rhythms that your G-spot makes or the fuller sensation of anal stimulation. There’s a lot of ground to cover when it comes to pleasure, so you better buckle up and get ready to start.
How many types of orgasms are there?
We counted 10 broad categories of orgasms for you, all depending on either which body part you’re stimulating, how you’re stimulating it, or whether you’re going for more than one. Think of these as your car’s custom settings on your journey to that blissful climax.
What is a blended orgasm?
The blended orgasm is the best of both worlds— clitoral and vaginal orgasms rolled into one earth-shattering climax. Simultaneously stimulate the two in any way you like along with PC contractions, pelvic thrusting, and deep breathing for one hell of a ride. It’s certainly an exhilarating experience you won’t forget!
Is it possible for me to have multiple orgasms?
Definitely! Try stimulating your clit or other erogenous zones first, before moving deeper into your G-spot and knocking on your backdoor to get one orgasm after the other. If your body is feeling a bit too sensitive, all you need is to take a quick break before bouncing back.
Is it true that women can achieve an orgasm by thought alone?
It could be difficult to wrap your head around it, but it’s definitely not unheard of! With a lot of practice, some women are able to get off simply through the wonders of their own imagination. That’s because our sexuality is more complex and emotionally driven than previously thought.
