The infamous ‘Kinsey Report’ found that 37% of American females (in the 1950s) had experienced dreams which led to orgasm by the age of forty five. (3) These require absolutely no genital stimulation. Sometimes we simply wake up and we are in orgasm. Sometimes we dream we are having orgasm and we have one at the same time. Sometimes we only dream of one but it is orgasmic in a non-physical or less physical way. Dream-gasms sometimes occur with strong vaginal and anal contractions, and sometimes not. They can feel like a clitoral orgasm, or an energy orgasm. They are extremely pleasurable. Sometimes a full bladder can trigger such orgasms.
These are quite small, extremely subtle orgasms that occur without any physical stimulation. They can take various forms. If we simply stop and focus on our erotic energy body, and visualize the orgasmic flow inside us, we can physically feel orgasmic waves pulse through our bodies and feel the "tension and release" on a very subtle level. It's similar to the idea that enlightenment is within us. If we focus, we can bring about spiritual feelings. Orgasm is within us. If we focus, we can bring about orgasmic feelings. It's as if when we focus on our cells multiplying we can feel the cells having orgasms called cellular-gasms. Ray Stubbs calls them "sprit-body orgasms," and explains that they "could be easily missed if we are not looking for them." (4) Also, if we focus on our autonomic nervous system we can feel bioenergetic reactions, where the body begins twitching on its own. This can be super orgasmic. If when we are sneezing we eroticise the sneeze, we can transmute it into an orgasm. When we get the "chills" we can eroticise the feelings and turn them into orgasms.

Juliet Carr, who does sensual massage, calls the goosebumps that occur from this kind of orgasm, "orgabumps." Microgasms can also occur while doing various activities that are pleasurable—walking in the wind, laying in the sun, singing on stage, etc. There has been some scientific study on energy orgasms, but a very minimal amount, as far as I could ascertain. Beverly Whipple and Gina Ogden did a study on "thinking off" in their laboratory–to see if women could have orgasms without genital stimulation. They found that it did occur. They also found that, "...some women achieved what they claimed were satisfying orgasms without the characteristic contractions of the orgasmic platform." (5) It is possible to simply lay down, do nothing but focus on erotic feelings in the body, and begin to twitch and shake, with "kriyas" (a yogic term), and go into orgasmic ecstasy. I have known a number of people who can do this. These kinds of orgasms can easily be taught. I have taught many women how to have them in various workshops. They reside just below our surface. All we need to do is let them bubble up.

In this category, I will lump together what are called vaginal orgasms, g-spot orgasms and cervical orgasms–any and all orgasms that happen inside the vagina with inter-vaginal stimulation (with fingers, fists, dildos, penises, etc.) Each of these kinds of orgasm feels slightly different, and sometimes they occur together. Some inter-vaginal orgasms are totally subtle and some are overwhelming. I believe that many women are having various kinds of inter-vaginal orgasms all the time, but don’t acknowledge them as such, because they are looking for them to feel like clitoral orgasms, and they don't. There are many feminists who believe that clitoral orgasms are the superior orgasms. They want to set the record straight after Freud misled so many women and men. Expert sex educator, Betty Dodson, for example, doesn’t really consider g-spot or vaginal orgasms valid orgasms. G-spot orgasms can happen with or without ejaculation. Ejaculation can also occur without orgasm. Cervical orgasms often occur with fisting. One can feel a huge tension release deep in the gut. They are almost like belly orgasms. Often vaginal orgasms can occur without a climax. Keep reading...
