the female orgasm: 7 types and how to get yours

Female orgasms ! Almost everyone talks about the big O but did you know that there are other types of orgasms other than the vaginal and clitoral orgasms, everyone keeps raving about. Remember that your body is filled with different erogenous zones and by dedicating the right amount of awareness and attention you can definitely get there.

Some women may still find it hard to orgasm due to certain factors but even at that it isn’t possible. Orgasms require keeping an open mind while experimenting with your body to choose the preferred method for you.

When it comes to the types of orgasms, some persons will swear that there are up to 12 types and others less. Orgasms! The benefits are immeasurable. And no matter the type you seem to be having, it still feels incredible all the same. Now, the sole purpose of sex is not just for orgasms; orgasms do not always make the sex great. Pleasure is always key.

But, we would be focusing on the average number a person can experience and how to indulge in it.

What are the types of orgasms?

There are lots of orgasms, but here we are focusing on six of the most popular types of orgasms, what they feel like and how to make them happen.

Clitoral orgasm

This is the jollof rice of all orgasms. Almost 75% of women orgasm through the clitoris and it can be easily stimulated. Although this may be the most accessible type of orgasm, the pleasure gotten is highly individualistic and touch can vary from persons to person. These orgasms are often felt on the surface of the body- the feeling is tingly.

Clitoral orgasms are stimulated from the clitoris- a small organ packed with lots of nerve endings located in the front of the female vulva  and  peeks under the clitoral hood and extends down the inside of the labia.


Make sure your clitoris is wet enough, you can use lubes to help out. Use your fingers, palm or a small vibrator by rubbing it in a side or up and down.

Apply more pressure when it becomes to feel good. Apply faster and harder pressure in a repetitive motion.

The type of clitoral stimulation varies from person to person. Some women prefer direct clitoral stimulation and stimulation that involved making circles or up and down movement. While some women preferred indirect stimulation that didn’t put a lot of pressure on the clitoris.


For clitoral stimulation you can use either a clit vibrator or a clitoral suction toy. Clitoral suction toys indirectly stimulate the external bulb by using air to create a sucking sensation that feels just like oral sex. Here are some you can check out


2. Vagina orgasm

This is the fried rice of female orgasms. Popular, accepted but misunderstood. This is often the most difficult way for women to orgasm. The orgasms are deeper in the body and more intense. Vaginal orgasms are gotten from the pleasure of penetrative sex but there is an overlap between the vaginal and clitoral orgasm because both nerve endings are connected by nerve pathways and muscular structures according to O Reilly.


Difficult as it may be to get vaginal penetration, it is not quite impossible. Begin by using your fingers or toys into the vagina instead of a penis and move in a circular motion rather than an in and out movement. This is because the point of pleasure is on the walls of the vagina called the G-spot: and can lead to orgasm when strong regular pressure is applied. Stick with the pressure and motion that feel the best for you and let the pleasure mount up. Don’t forget to show your clit some love while you are at it. The G-spot is also the best way to lead up to female ejaculation.

Toys to try

Try these toys to stimulate the g-spot. Great during partner and solo play

3. Anal Orgasm

The backdoor is one of the most controversial pleasure point. This is the Ofada stew of all party foods. Those who have experienced this will swear by it honorably and we can attest to that. Butt play can be pleasurable for anyone if you have enough lube and you take your time. The anal orgasm can be confusing for beginners especially before the big O. You may feel an intense and overwhelming need to pee but the contractions wouldn’t be felt around your genitals but the anal sphincter.


You can stimulate the ring of nerves at the entrance of the anus also known as the external sphincter. Or through the G-spot which shares a wall between the rectum and vagina so you can indirectly stimulate using a toy or a finger.

Apply lube over your fingers and massage it around your hole. This will get you ready for a pleasurable and sexual experience. Massage the inside and outside of the opening and gently insert your toy or finger into your anus. Start with an in and out motion and then begin to move in a circular motion. Alternate between both movements to choose what works for you.

With a partner try the missionary sex position or doggy style for deeper penetration. Anal sex may feel uncomfortable in the beginning but it isn’t meant to be painful. If you feel more pain, stop and try again when you are more aroused.


4. Cervical orgasms

This is the swallow of all party foods. When Lil Wayne was talking about going deeper in the hit track Motivation by Kelly Rowland, I’m sure this was what they had in mind. This is the type of orgasm that will rock your body, send those tingly waves from your head to your toe. This orgasm is the type that can keep on giving and lasts for a long time. The cervix is the deepest part of the vaginal canal located right below the uterus.


Arousal and relaxation will help you achieve this faster. If you are riding solo, let your imagination guide you as you rub your clitoris. If you are with a partner, allow them work some foreplay magic. Positions like the doggy-style allows for deep penetration, so try being on all fours with a penetrative toy or partner. Start off slow, gradually working your way deeper until you find a depth that feels good and keep at it so the pleasure can build.


5. Blended Orgasms

True to its name, this orgasm is a combination of two different orgasms at the same time. When the vagina and clitoris are stimulated at the same time, it tends to result in a more explosive type of orgasm. Imagine the explosion that happens when you stimulate these spots at once and actually orgasm from it. No words needed.


Use both hands to double your pleasure or combine fingers and toys. Alternate parallel rhythms while playing with your clit and vagina. Switch up with fast clit action and slow vaginal penetration and . Anyhow you want to play. 


  • Use the Mahogany’s suction toy for solo play for both g-spot and clitoral stimulation.
  • Use the rabbit vibrator for g-spot and clitoral stimulation.
  • Use the mini bullet vibrator to stimulate your clitoris during penetrative sex with a partner

6. Nipple orgasms 

Yes, this is a thing. Some vulva owners can orgasm from nipple penetration and stimulation alone. It may be gentle flicking or a more intense pinching. Your nipples are filled with feel so good nerve endings when stimulated. 

 Research also shows that when stimulated, they set your genital sensory cortex ablaze. This is the same area of the brain that lights up during vaginal or clitoral stimulation.


Caress and squeeze your breasts and other parts of your body ignoring the nipple at first. Then work your way from the aureola to the nipple without being in a rush. Slow and flickering strokes should do.When you get to the nipple try pinching, flickering and rubbing the nipple itself. Ramp up the pleasure as it intensifies.


7. Erogeneous zones

The body is full of pleasure points and nerve endings. Ever wondered why it feels so good when you get neck kisses, or a toe sucking and all of that?

That’s because your body has got so many hot spots hidden in different places on the body. The neck, ears, lower back, scalp, armpits, feet, inner thighs, inner wrist, inner knee, and fingers all have pleasure potentials.  We can’t tell you which one would bring you to the brink but experimenting with them with definitely get you there.

Pleasure requires practice. 


In a comfortable position, let your thoughts wander and using a feather or silky scarf allow your body feel its most sensitive areas.Get naked and relax so that you can focus on every tingle. Take notes of these spots and try experimenting with different sensations, like squeezing or pinching. Based on the sensations you can opt for more intense or subtle means to get pleasure. 


Orgasms are beautiful but they are not the end point of every sexual experience. Even if you find it difficult reaching orgasm as long as you achieve pleasure during sex, it’s still good sex.

However, if you still want to have more orgasms, here’s how to.
