6 Genius Ways Women Can Orgasm
By now we all know that the majority of women do not have orgasms during intercourse, but some of the other ways we climax might just surprise you. From unconventional methods to startling locations, read on to discover some of the remarkable ways women experience mind-blowing orgasms.
While a little rubbing, tugging and vibrating may be just what the doctor ordered for most of us, a very small percentage of women can actually have hands-free (and toy-free) orgasms through fantasy alone. In fact, sex researchers have even used MRI machines to observe this phenomenon as further evidence that the brain truly is our most powerful sex organ.
You’ve probably heard that doing your kegels can make your nether regions tingle with delight, but would you ever have guessed that abdominal crunches could have the same effect? That’s right! Reports of women reaching new heights of sexual pleasure while exercising are baffling scientists who can’t yet explain these so-called coregasms.
Men aren’t the only ones having wet dreams. Women also have orgasms while we sleep although the “evidence” isn’t always as clear when we wake up. While often accompanied by naughty sex dreams, these orgasms are spontaneous and are relatively common, as our sexual inhibitions are set aside during the relaxation of a deep sleep.
Yoga may be good for the body, mind and soul, but the latest research suggests that it may also have sexual benefits beyond strengthening your pelvic floor muscles.
Reports of impromptu orgasms during group classes across North America has led to the coining of a new term, yogasms. Some practitioners even specialize in orgasmic yoga touting it as a transformative practice that can be practiced alone, with a lover or as part of a group.
Reaching orgasm through breast and nipple stimulation is perfectly normal, as these areas activate the same sensory area of the brain that lights up when you stimulate the clitoris, vagina and cervix. Breastfeeding orgasms are no exception.
Though not commonly discussed, many women who have experienced orgasms while breastfeeding report that the experience is sensual, but not sexual. The connection between breastfeeding and orgasm is two-fold: our nipples and breasts can be highly sensitive during this time period and the release of oxytocin, which is linked to orgasmic uterine contractions as well as milk ejection, can facilitate the physical response.
Most of the mothers I work with simply can’t imagine an orgasmic childbirth, but those who have experienced it say it was both immensely powerful and pleasurable. Some experts even refer to it as “the best kept secret,” but I’m not willing to go that far. I’m all for minimizing pain, but I’m reticent to promote one more sexual experience that you must try. If it happens, so be it, but if not, that’s okay too.
If you’re curious about the science behind orgasmic childbirth, experts believe that it results from the combination of direct physical stimulation and hormonal surges experienced during labour.
