Orgasms 101


Last week I was doing some research on orgasms.  I was stunned to find that most of my search results came up with two types of female orgasms.  Most results referred to either clitoral or vaginal orgasms.  Those are certainly two types, but there are many more.  I’ve counted eight orgasms that directly relate to parts of the female anatomy:

1. Clitoral orgasms are the most common type women experience.  I’ve been having clitoral orgasms since fifth grade, but I’ll spare you the details.  They’re created by intense and direct stimulation of the clitoris.  One great thing about clitoral orgasms is that you can have them just about anywhere, with or without a partner.

2. Vaginal orgasms, as far as my internet research uncovered, really meant g-spot orgasms.  The g-spot is a sensitive area of ribbed tissue on the front side of the vagina, generally 2-3 inches inside the vaginal opening.  It is the inside end of the clitoris.  If you think of the clitoris as one end of a barbell, the g-spot is the other end.  They’re connected by a bundle of nerves and either end of the bundle is an incredibly sensitive erotic spot.

3.  There is another vaginal spot that can trigger an orgasm.  It’s not well known, but from personal research I can tell you that it’s not a myth.  It’s the anterior fornix erogenous zone, or AFE spot, and it’s located on the front wall of the vagina just below the cervix.
