Title: Poll: Types of orgasms
Post by: honourine on August 19, 2008, 06:52:43 PM
Hi forum members!

Share your experience by participating in my simple poll! I want to hear from other women and the kinds of orgasms they have. I think it would be interesting to see what’s common and if it matches the information out there.

Also, feel free to post any comments on types of orgasms here!

Types of Orgasms:
I found this description of different types of orgasms described by sexologist Betty Dodson on about.com here (http://sexuality.about.com/od/orgasms/a/types_of_orgasm_2.htm). Besides clitoral orgasms (orgasm through clitoral stimulation) and vaginal orgasms (orgasm by vaginal penetration), she describes these additional types of orgasms below.

Pressure orgasms. Dodson ties these to early childhood experiences rocking back and forth or masturbating by squeezing your legs together. This orgasm comes from indirect stimulation, no rubbing, but instead applying pressure (by leaning heavily against or on something). As children we may engage in this kind of self soothing and sex stimulating behavior even if it doesn’t result in an orgasm the way we think of them as adults. A study published in the journal Pediatrics in 2005 took note of this very common form of self-stimulation, particularly in young girls. Some adults may bring this behavior into their sex lives and have orgasms from it.

Tension orgasms. This is the orgasm that comes from direct and intense stimulation usually while you are holding your body and muscles tight and tense, and holding your breath. Dodson considers tension orgasms the most common, favored because they are quick and dirty. She also calls them “peak orgasms” as they offer an intense build up followed by a sudden release. Tension orgasms could be our default because of early sexual experiences, which are often secretive and quick. It’s often been suggested that for men, premature ejaculation is a result of learning early on how to get aroused and orgasm quickly. For women too, early experiences can influence later ones, and Dodson encourages people to try to experience more orgasms beyond these, even if they do do the trick.

Relaxation orgasms. Dodson describes this type of orgasm as coming not from a build up of tension, but from deep relaxation during sexual stimulation, where you continue to release tension and relax your muscles and eventually the orgasm sneaks up on you. As opposed to the “peak orgasm” Dodson cites Shree Rajneesh, a master and author of Tantra, Spirituality and Sex , who refers to these kinds of orgasms as “valley orgasms”.

Combination or blended orgasms. Ideally orgasm is a fluid process (no pun intended) and if sex play lasts long enough you’ll get to enjoy more than one experience during orgasm, which we can call a combination orgasm. For Dodson, who has been teaching women to orgasm for over 30 years, combination orgasms involve a specific set of actions, including: “clitoral stimulation, vaginal stimulation, PC muscle contractions, pelvic thrusting, and breathing out loud.” One could broaden this definition to include orgasms that offer a variety of experiences and opportunity for you to pay attention to the different waves of orgasmic feelings.

Multiple orgasms. (FMO's!) While female multiple orgasms are more often talked about, both men and women are capable of having multiple orgasms. Dodson distinguishes between multiple orgasms and the “aftershocks of pleasure” that follow a big orgasm, which some people might call orgasms, and which allows them to count 20 or 30 orgasms a night. One of the pitfalls of multiple orgasms is the trap of waiting for them and having anxiety about whether or not you’ll have them. Do either of these things and your attention will be taken away from the pleasure you’re feeling, which is a waste of an orgasm whatever number it comes in.

G-spot orgasms. The g spot debate is far from over, and while Dodson doesn’t discount them, she favors clitoral stimulation at least being in the mix, and offers a wary attitude to those who argue for orgasms that come from penetration alone. Nonetheless, many women report orgasms that come from g spot stimulation being fundamentally different from orgasms that come from other kinds of stimulation, and given the number of women who have written and talked about it, they certainly deserve a place in the orgasm encyclopedia.

Fantasy orgasms. Dodson largely discounts the idea of orgasms that result from mental stimulation alone (which is not surprising given her belief in the supremacy of clitoral stimulation). In fact there have been several studies and years of anecdotal reports by women who have orgasms without any physical contact, and from mental fantasy alone. There is a tendency by many to see orgasms from fantasy as being less than other kinds of orgasms, but this attitude seems to come mostly from rigid thinking about the right and wrong way to orgasm, and less from people’s personal experiences.

Hi Honourine,

Good poll! Thanks.

There's one kind orgasm you forgot to include in your survey though - anal orgasms.

Do anal orgasms really exist?!? I'd like to hear from someone who's had one.

I haven't had one but women frequently do during anal sex. For some this really disturbs them because sex in da bum is doity, yes? Filthy. Perverted and WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME FOR CUMING THAT WAY?

AT the TOP of the vagina on the posterior wall we have the A SPOT. It is up near the uterus, quite hard to reach through fingers or intercourse HOWEVER if the angle is right during anal sex the ASPOT will trigger almost the same as the GSpot and VOILA ... massive orgasm(s) every few seconds or whenever the erection slams the ASpot again and again.

There is nothing "weird" about orgasming during anal if you know your plumbing.

Thanks for your reply Mr. G and happy holidays!

If I understand you correctly, then the anal orgasm you describe is a vaginal (A-spot) orgasm that is provoked through anal access to the A-spot. This kind of orgasm would only apply to women then. But what about orgasm due to actual stimulation of the anus itself?

The description of pressure orgasms seems to indicate that they are due entirely to pressure with some "rocking" and no "rubbing." However, the difference between rocking and rubbing can be a little fuzzy. I occasionally put something soft but firm between my legs and thrust against it. Certain pillows are good, but the arm of the couch also works. It's a nice variation and it can give me a really good orgasm. However, the rubbing is an important part of that experience for me. It's not just about pressure.

Interesting topic!

As Annie Sprinkle famously illustrated, it's possible to orgasm with no physical stimulation whatsoever - in her case, just from breathing.

(I have a theory tho' - Annie is a sexual athlete, and probably has very well developed vagina muscle strength & control. During the "power breathing" which brought her up to orgasm she MAY have sympathetically contracted her sex muscles, stimulating her G-spot. Just an idea...)

It's also possible for men & women orgasm when awake or  asleep, from sexual imagination.

Anal orgasm - pretty rare IME. Men can experience it from prostate stimulation. Women also - Is it the A-spot described by Mr G, or stimulation of the Gspot through he vaginal wall? I know from experience that fingers in a woman's anus can stroke her G-spot and cause orgasm. Presumably under the right conditions anal intercourse with a penis can do this also? - or is she just getting-off on the psychological "naughtiness" of it all?  ;o)

Thanks for yer time
