Reaching orgasm may increase chances of conception by 15 percent, according to a new study.
While male orgasms have a link to fertility, until now, female orgasms were considered to occur simply for pleasure.
But new research suggests female orgasms could play a key role in fertility.
The study suggests reaching climax could increase a woman’s chance of conceiving by as much as 15 per cent. Read more
Does clitoris size matter when it comes to female orgasm? For women who have problems reaching orgasm, it’s more likely due to location, not size, says Lisa Fogarty.
Since the dawn of time, men have been comparing penis sizes for sport (and, cough, reminding themselves that size doesn’t always matter). Women aren’t immune to comparisons — 1 in 7, according to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, has actually considered getting the lips of her vagina surgically trimmed. But what about the clitoris, the magical ~love button~ (with over 8,000 nerve endings!) that pushes you to orgasm? Does the size of that matter? Read more
A Kinkly reader asks sexpert Ducky Doplittle a question:
I’d really like to orgasm with my partner, but I can only come when he gives me oral sex or uses his hands. Is there any way to orgasm during sex?
Ducky Doolittle replies:
Most women don’t orgasm from penetration alone. You may be able to learn to orgasm purely from penetration. If not, you will at the very least learn how to have bigger orgasms in general. But let me be very clear about this: Your body is perfect. There is no wrong way to orgasm. The way you orgasm right now is awesome. Just because you don’t orgasm from penetration does not mean penetration does not feel good. It is physical, bonding, playful and hopefully makes you breathe heavy and gets your heart pumping. So it doesn’t take you over the edge. It’s OK to let your lover know this.
And now I’ll give you some very solid advice on how to achieve bigger, more badass orgasms, with or without penetration. Read more
A clitoral orgasm is good, and a G-spot orgasm is good, but a combined clitoral and G-spot orgasm… priceless.
The Combined Clitoral and G-Spot Orgasm is an ancient Tantric sex technique, which was first practiced over 3000 years ago. Although 70 percent of women can only achieve orgasm through clitoral stimulation, this technique uses combined stimulation of the clitoris and G-spot to bring a woman to what is called a “blended” or “combination” orgasm. This kind of orgasm is at least twice as intense as either the clitoral or G-spot orgasms by themselves. Read more

These eight orgasm tips can spice up your sex life starting right now.
Here at Refinery29, we don’t believe that any approach to sex is one-size-fits-all. Different techniques work for different people (with different partners, and at different times). That said, we have collected quite a few tried-and-tested tips that sex therapists, sex toy experts, and sex-having people swear can help you reach orgasm (and maybe even orgasms). No, orgasm isn’t the be-all-end-all of sex, but it’s part of the gamut of sexual experience, and a pretty great one at that. Read more
