Ways Women Orgasm

Transferring masturbation techniques to sex

Caroline lived on a farm as a child and was fortunate in having innocent and light-hearted sexual experiences as she grew up. Even as kids they would play the ‘I’ll show you mine if you show me yours’ game on the bus ride to school.

Her mother insisted that Caroline went on the pill at sixteen. She was not bothered about the sex. She simply wanted Caroline to be protected from pregnancy. Caroline had her first serious relationship soon after. The sex was adventurous and great fun.

When they split up, Caroline decided to find out about female masturbation to fill the sexual void. She discovered orgasm for the first time. Young women often don’t know how to orgasm and unfortunately sex advice for women is often misleading. The only sure way to find out about orgasm is to try female masturbation.

When Caroline went back to sex with men, she found it relatively easy to adapt her orgasm techniques so that she could masturbate in the presence of a lover. She did not always declare her use of sexual fantasies to her lovers and some men were not happy for her to masturbate. They insisted that they had to give her an orgasm. On these occasions, Caroline simply accepted sex without orgasm.

“The women who had orgasm during intercourse were usually those who, in a sense, did it themselves. They did not expect to ‘receive’ orgasm automatically from the thrusting of the partner.” (p51 The Hite Reports 1993)

Caroline travelled a great deal, working as a fashion model in Europe, the US and South America among other places. In the space of a few years Caroline had many lovers (she mentioned the figure 80). Many of these were one-night-stands. She simply thought the whole thing was a laugh. As she remembered some of the more outrageous experiences, she giggled. I asked her whether she had been worried about sexual disease. Caroline admitted that she had taken stupid risks but she had been lucky.

Sexual arousal versus sexual ego

It made me think of ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ (1994) when Andy MacDowell enumerates her lovers. Hugh Grant, who had thought of himself as a bit of a playboy, is quite outdone by the time she gets to 32 because he had had “nothing like that many” girlfriends. Andy MacDowell explains that she “grew up in the country – lots of rolling around in haystacks”.

Caroline had sex with men for the fun of it. It was not about orgasm; it was sexual ego. A man’s sexual arousal can be very flattering and Caroline liked the fact that they wanted to have sex with her. She felt that she was the one manipulating them. It seemed quite callous to me but then I have always been a bit square.

Plenty of men screw women with shallow intentions. I guess it makes sense that women do the same. Caroline thought it was sweet that I had only had three lovers. I was never really interested in the ego trip of casual sex. I had romantic notions of love and friendship. As far as sex was concerned, being my partner’s lover and pleasuring him was how I showed my love for him.

Caroline married at 23 and has been faithful to her husband. When I talked to her she was a mother of four in her late thirties. She admitted that sex had become more of a duty over time as her priorities changed to focus on the children.

Caroline was very fortunate. Other women may find that transferring orgasm techniques to sex is not so straightforward because their sexual fantasies are more suitable for use alone than with a partner. Many women have to learn to accept enjoying the sensual or emotional pleasures of physical intimacy with a partner rather than orgasm during sex.

    Hi, Jane.
    I congratulate you on your open-ness and also on your stated efforts to find answers to your lack of orgasms in your vaginal sexual intercourse. I realise that your site is mainly aimed at women, especially those who do not easily achieve orgasm. However, there is some worthwhile reading here for many men too.

    You have posted a lot of information here on your site, some of which I totally agree with and some that I at least have doubts about. For instance, I personally have seen several women achieve what they ‘claimed’ was an orgasm without so much as once touching their clitoris or even their vulva. All they did was to run their hands slowly and sensually over various parts of their bodies, including their breasts and their bellies until they went into what appeared to be an orgasm. I have seen two who only massaged their breasts and nipples and ‘claimed’ to have an orgasm.

    I personally have massaged the area within the vagina that is commonly termed the G-spot for several women and they ‘claimed’ that they acheived orgasms from it.

    You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

    Thanks for your positive feedback.

    I think that books could certainly be written about how women CLAIM to orgasm! My challenge has been to discuss how women truly do orgasm (in a way that men would understand i.e. through genital stimulation). I wish as many women were open to discussing this topic as men are. Unfortunately, men do not have a woman’s body and so they cannot know how differently a woman responds. Women get hard-ons much less frequently, for example.

    My point is that men would not consider approaching orgasm without stimulating their genitals (and having a hard-on first). Many men dislike using a condom precisely because of the reduced genital stimulation. Why would anyone NOT want to stimulate their genitals since this is how both sexes reach orgasm? The explanation is that women are rarely aroused enough for genital stimulation to lead to orgasm.

    Women do not become aroused as easily as men do. I agree with John Gray that men are much MUCH more sexual than women both physiologically and biologically. The only way I have been able to achieve sufficient sexual arousal for orgasm is through the use of highly focused sexual fantasy. Most women I talk to are shocked by any form of eroticism so it’s not clear how they ever get turned on enough for orgasm.

    The vagina has very few nerve endings (since it is part of the birth canal) and so it is no failure for a woman to have little sensation from intercourse. The phenomenon you are describing is one where women are enjoying the touch and feel of their own body but this does not lead to female orgasm any more than it would for a man if he did the exact same thing. Women use such sexual teasing techniques as a male turn-on.

    I have not found a woman yet who is able to explain these claims of orgasm without genital stimulation. As a man, you should know that orgasms don’t just happen. You also have to focus on erotic thoughts or emotions and many women do not understand this. They enjoy sensuality and loving emotions but not the crude sexual urges that lead to a true orgasm.

    If you ever meet a woman who is interested in explaining how these non-genital orgasm work, please ask her to contact me. I have talked to a few such women and they say it all happens ‘magically’ and without any particular mental focus on eroticism – simply loving emotions. Since they never masturbate they really have no idea what an orgasm feels like.
