Vaginal or Clitoral Orgasm: Are You Determined to Get Only One Type Of Big O?

...Or Do You Get To Choose From Different Fragrances?

...Or Do You Get To Choose From Different Fragrances?

Not long ago, there was hardly any research being done on the female orgasm. The female orgasm was still considered mysterious and taboo. In fact, many women weren’t even sure of how to have an orgasm or that it was possible for them to experience pleasure. With recent advances in science and technology, women’s knowledge of their own bodies and ability to orgasm is changing.Despite the common assumption that there is only one type of female orgasm, scientists have been doing research that proves otherwise. In a study found in the Journal of Sexual Medicine scientists have been studying the different ways that females can orgasm with the help of women volunteers and ultrasound technology. The study involved analysing variations in blood flow patterns when both the clitoris and vagina were stimulated. The results found that there is, in fact, more than one type of female orgasm. While two different orgasms were discovered, the vaginal and the clitoral, these orgasms are not separate and distinct from each other.

So could we move past the traditional opposition of vaginal or clitoral orgasm? By their names it may seem that these orgasms are directly related to two different organs when in fact it’s actually thought that vaginal orgasms are the result of internal clitoral stimulation.

Read more below to learn about these two types of orgasms, their differences, their similarities, and how to know if you’re determined to have only one or the other.

How Exactly Do Women Orgasm?

Unlike the male orgasm, the way women experience orgasm is much more complex and varied. Women have the advantage when it comes to sexual stimulation because not only can they experience multiple orgasms, but can reach orgasm through stimulation in different areas. Women can orgasm through stimulation of either the vulva and clitoris or the interior vaginal walls. These different types of stimulations lead to different types of orgasms. Around 70 percent of women find that they can only orgasm via clitoral stimulation. If you feel like there’s something wrong with you because you’re having a hard time reaching orgasm or can only climax with clitoral stimulation, know you’re not alone and that it’s perfectly normal.

Vaginal & Clitoral Orgasm — The Same or Different?

While both a vaginal and a clitoral orgasm involve stimulation and blood flow, they are achieved in very different ways. Many women who have experienced both types of orgasm have noted different feelings, differences in lengths, and different anatomical responses. This is most likely because during a clitoral orgasm only the external clitoris is stimulated, causing a surge of blood flow to the outer parts of the vulva. Clitoral orgasms are often short, but intense. But during a vaginal orgasm, both the external and internal clitoral roots are stimulated. This can cause a feeling of orgasm that many women describe as being “inside” because during a vaginal orgasm the vaginal muscles contract leading to a deeper, longer orgasm.

Why It’s Perfectly Normal to Have Trouble Reaching Orgasm.

While it’s great news that women can orgasm in multiple ways, you shouldn’t feel like there’s something wrong with you if you can only reach orgasm one way. Only 25 percent of women can orgasm through vaginal intercourse alone. The other 75 percent need some form of clitoral stimulation. Just remember that every woman’s body is different and unique. Don’t be ashamed if you can’t orgasm with normal, conventional sex. A lot of people require extra stimulation and even the help of toys. If you’re having trouble reaching orgasms either way try experimenting with yourself or your partner. There is no right way to orgasm, as long as you are enjoying yourself and feel good while doing it.

How Orgasms Change Over Life.

Just as our bodies change over the course of our lives, so do our orgasms. When women are younger in the teens and early adult life, they may still be feeling insecure about their bodies, sexual life, and place in the world. There is research that shows that, “how a woman feels about her genitals is linked to the quality of her orgasms.” But as we grow older, we find our calling, gain confidence and learn to love our genitals. Dr. Stern claims that “as a women’s health clinician, I can vouch for the fact that every vagina looks different and there is no “perfect” vagina or way to look.” Sometimes all it takes is age to gain confidence and better orgasms.

Orgasms also change over the course of a life because of experience. As we get older we gain more sexual partners and have more opportunities to experiment in bed. By experimenting and exploring ourselves, we get to know our bodies better and exactly what they need to get off. Dr. Herbenick puts it best when she says, “It is significantly easier for women to experience orgasms when they engage in a variety of sex acts as opposed to just one act.” A lot of women may find themselves need more than one type of sex act to achieve orgasms, something you can only figure out with age and time experimenting. “For example, vaginal sex plus oral sex would be linked to a higher likelihood of orgasm than either one of them alone. This may be because more sex acts mean that people spend more time having sex.”

Orgasms Can Actually Get Better With Age.

As women get older and gain more sexual experiences, it’s no wonder that their orgasms can get better and more frequent with age. When we’re older we take our time more. Especially since women’s lubrication levels go down as they age, sex tends to slow down and become more purposeful. Women also gain confidence as they get older, making them less afraid to ask for exactly what they want and need in bed. “Orgasms becomes easier with age,” Dr. Herbenick says, “As an example, while 61 percent of women ages 18 to 24 experience orgasm the last time they had sex, 65 percent of women in their 30s did and about 70 percent of women in their 40s and 50s did.”

Women and their partners also become more skilled in bed with age. They pick up tips and tricks from many sexual experiences that have all accumulated over the years. When we’re teenagers, we are more afraid to experiment with things like toys, fantasies and different positions. As the years go by we figure out what we like and don’t like in bed and begin to embrace that. Older adults are also less worried about superficial things in bed like what they look like or how their partner views them.

Remember that if you’re finding yourself only able to have one type of orgasm or no orgasm at all, it doesn’t mean that you are determined to be like this forever. Our bodies and sexual experiences are constantly changing, especially as we get order. And thanks to science and sexologists like Dr. Herbenick we now know that orgasms only better from here on out, and we have something to look forward to as we age!
