“Orgasms are like snowflakes; no two are alike, they’re free, they melt in your mouth, and not even the weather forecast can predict when they’ll come.” Cory Silverberg.
I counted eight different types of orgasms last week, then immediately thought of eight more. Here goes:
1. Multiple orgasms (my personal favorite): Yes, these are real. Not all women experience them, but those of us who do are grateful for them. Some sex experts distinguish between multiple orgasms and pleasure aftershocks, but personally I think that’s splitting hairs.
2. Pressure Orgasms. These come from indirect stimulation and are the type of orgasm commonly experienced by young children. (Yes, you read that right. Lots of kids have orgasms) Pressure orgasms are created by rocking, squeezing your legs together, or otherwise putting pressure on the clitoris. There’s no rubbing involved.
3. Fantasy Orgasms. Fantasy orgasms come from mental stimulation alone. They’re not very common, but they can happen. Usually this type of orgasm happens in combination with clitoral stimulation, either alone or with a partner.
4. Sleep Orgasms. Similar to fantasy orgasms, sleep orgasms occur with no physical stimulation. They happen, obviously, while you’re sleeping. When they happen to me the orgasm itself wakes me out of the sleep. Sometimes I remember the dream that caused it, but not always.
5. Ejaculatory Orgasms. Women can ejaculate; it’s not just a myth. And it’s not urine, although it does come from the urethra. It’s a fluid called amrita, and it comes from the Skene’s glands, which are located on either side of the urethra. It requires a combination of clitoral and g-spot stimulation to produce the amrita, and some practice to actually squirt.
