A relationship expert has revealed the female body is able to experience 12 different orgasms, and one even occurs while you are asleep
To celebrate National Orgasm Day on Tuesday, British sex and relationship expert Audrey Andrews has explained the different types of climaxes women are able to experience, and how to have them.
Explaining there are ten more than the basic clitoral and vaginal orgasm, the therapist revealed there is also the little known ‘snoregasm’, which happens when you’re asleep, as well as the ‘coregasm’, which you can experience while working out.
Describing them as being named the ‘Dirty Dozen’, Audrey, adult toy Lovehoney’s resident expert, told Femail how you can recognise- and experience, each of them.
1. Clitoral orgasm
This is most common and easily-achieved kind of orgasm and more than 90 per cent of women have had one by stimulating the clitoris.
The clitoris is a fascinating part of the female anatomy. Its only purpose is to provide pleasure. Although there are other parts of the human body from which pleasure is derived, they also serve other purposes.
The penis, as well as providing pleasure, is also part of the reproductive system.
Only a third of women regularly experience clitoral orgasm during intercourse.
Research has found that women who have a clitoris that sits closer to their vaginal opening have a greater chance of achieving orgasm during intercourse than women who have a larger distance between these two body parts.
2. Vaginal/G-Spot orgasm
The G-spot (or Graffenberg Spot, to be precise) is the name given to the small, nerve-rich area above the front vaginal wall.
It’s a controversial topic because some sexperts insist that the G-spot is a myth. Orgasms can be achieved by massaging that area in a circular ‘come hither’ motion.
3. Blended Orgasm
Blended orgasms occur when multiple areas of your body are being touched and pleasured simultaneously.
They can occur when you’re in the middle of fast-paced sex, or when you’re slowly building up to the main event. This is a great way to get loads of erogenous zones lighting up all at once.
4. Multiple Orgasms
Multiple orgasms can be either sequential (when you orgasm, rest, and then orgasm again) or serial (one orgasm after another with no rest in between).
If you’re hungry for more, try sequential style first. Orgasm, then take a minute to rest and enjoy the extra oxytocin (known as the love hormone, it is secreted during sex) flooding your brain.
Then go back for round two. Three-quarters of women have experienced a multiple orgasm, according to a survey of 1,000 women by Lovehoney.
5. Anal Orgasm
Lots of women can reach orgasm during anal sex, it just isn’t talked about much in popular culture.
The anal walls are rich in nerve endings and among the most sensitive erogenous zones in the body.
6. Sleep-Gasm (a.k.a ‘Snoregasm’)
The sheer power of the brain means that women can orgasm whilst they sleep.
In your sleep, you are at your most relaxed, aren’t worried about what you look like, or about your performance in bed. When these negative thoughts occur during sex, it is known as ‘spectatoring’ and it can be a huge barrier.
In your sleep, your mind can freely explore your sexual fantasies without feeling rushed or judged. This can turn you on so much you can end up orgasming. You may even end up waking yourself up.
7. Cervical Orgasm
This is one of the most powerful orgasms a woman can have.
Sometimes known as the full-body orgasm because of the way pleasure washes over you from head to toe, the cervical orgasm is best achieved via deep vaginal penetration.
Sex therapists suggest warming up with a few different positions beforehand and doing it doggy style to get as deep as possible.
