7 Different Kinds Of Orgasms You Might Be Having

Any type of orgasm sounds good to me. But variety is said to be the spice of life, and that extends to your sex life as well. So, you'll be happy to know that you can get to O-Town via many routes. The different kinds of orgasms you might be having might sound surprising, but surprising in a fantastic way if you ask me.

It goes without saying that the more you know your body, the more you know yourself, and the pleasure you're capable of. And, as a woman, you're granted with more options than men. Pretty cool, right?

Aside from boosting immune health to circulation, improving your complexion and relieving you of stress, orgasms are a fun, free way to relax and enjoy yourself at the same time. Although demanding an orgasm from your partner (or yourself) isn't the most polite way to go about pleasure-seeking, consider the fact that nearly one third of women have trouble climaxing, according to Woman's Day. You deserve to climax because... well, your body was designed for to experience these moments of pleasure. So if you're having trouble with one type of orgasm, peruse this list and see if another kind of O might work better for you.



The most common type of female orgasm, according to Women's Health, the clitoral orgasm is popular for a reason. There are over 8,000 nerve endings in your clit, so it's no wonder it feels so good when aroused. Tickling, stroking, or pressure directly on the clit can help you achieve this very pleasurable orgasm.



Penetration is the key to a vaginal orgasm, noted Women's Health. You don't need to locate your G-spot for a vaginal orgasm, but, according to a study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, you should aim for an active 15 minutes of intercourse, with plenty of thrusting to achieve the big O.



According to Refinery29, the tight muscles and thin skin of the anus makes the area ideal for lighting up with all kinds of happy sensations. Using lots of lube, anal play can lead to anal orgasms in both men and women. No prostate needed; just your butt hole.



Nipple stimulation activates the same region of the brain as clitoral, vaginal and cervical stimulation, according to The Science of Relationships. So yes, breast orgasms are very real. Play around with your engorged nipples the next time you're aroused, and you'll see what I mean. And, as noted in the Huffington Post, breast sensitivity changes with your menstrual cycle. So the more sensitive your breasts are, the more pleasure they may bring you.



The part of your anatomy named for named for Ernst Gräfenberg, noted Alternet, is the very real G-spot. If you've experienced an orgasm from penetration alone, noted Refinery29, that means you've found that spongy area above the front vaginal wall that leads to the G-spot orgasm.



Sex therapist Ava Cadell told Cosmopolitan that a blended orgasm is when you climax from clitoral and G-spot stimulation simultaneously. The trick is to get your clit warmed up — but not quite to the point of no return — and then focus on your G-spot. Lots of practice will have you mastering a technique that shows just how well you know your body and how good it can make you feel.



Once you start having multiple orgasms, a whole new universe opens up. According to Cosmopolitan women can have multiple orgasms after the first one. In other words, your body doesn't have a refractory period, like a man's. So, once you've had your first orgasm, the threshold to achieving more decreases. The second and third orgasms are often easier to achieve than that first. Can't have too much of a good thing, am I right?
