Everything You Want to Know about Orgasms

How to Have Multiple Orgasms

You greedy, greedy girl. Why would you want more than one orgasm? Wait, I know…because you can! Mother Nature may have cursed us with pregnancy, periods and high heels, but she did bestow one gift: the ability to have more than one orgasm in one session. Because women don't fall to the post-orgasm resolution phase as quickly as men do, it's easier for us to climb back up and have more orgasms in succession. Here's how to up the chances of it happening for you:

  • What's your "orgasm fingerprint?"
    While most orgasms follow a similar pattern, they vary enough between individuals for some experts to claim that we each have our very own "orgasm fingerprint." One theory about female orgasm says there are two distinct nerves responsible for the two different "basic" orgasms, clitoral and front wall. The pudendal nerve goes to the clitoris and the pelvic nerve goes to the vagina and uterus. Because the pudendal has more nerve endings, this could be why women have more clitoral than vaginal orgasms. The two nerves actually overlap in the spinal chord, which may explain why women are able to have "blended" orgasms (clitoral and front wall simultaneously).

    Several factors seem to influence whether women have both multiple and vaginal orgasms: the strength of their PC muscles, the sensitivity of their G spots (and other internal spots), motivation to keep trying different stimulation and orgasm triggers. As a general rule, the more ways you're able to orgasm (via masturbation, oral sex, penetration, etc), the more likely you are to have multiple orgasms.
