Types of Female Orgasms

July 31st is National Orgasm Day in the US, UK, and Australia. (I swear it’s true) This day is not only meant to celebrate the orgasm but to raise awareness of issues surrounding sexual climax, known as orgasm disorders.

To celebrate this special occasion, I have compiled a list of the types of female orgasms. There is debate over how to classify female orgasms or if there is more than one type of female orgasm. According to my many years of research on the types of the female orgasm and sexual function, these are the types of female orgasms.

What Is an Orgasm?

An orgasm in scientific terms is the “rhythmic contractions of the genitals.” It is the pinnacle of sexual arousal. Heightened arousal causes your blood pressure to rise, increasing blood flow to your genitals.

For men, this results in an erection. For women, the increased blood flow causes the G-spot to become engorged and easy to find. Stimulating erogenous zones leads to rapid breathing, increased heart rate, and vaginal contractions.

Orgasms don’t occur in the genitals but in the brain. Stimulation of the genitals sends signals to the pleasure center of the brain that results in the release of oxytocin, the hormone that causes happiness.

Orgasms are not always the Earth-shattering events portrayed in the media or faked in bedrooms everywhere. It is possible to have an orgasm and not realize it. Sometimes, an orgasm induces an intense feeling of relaxation only.

Clitoral Orgasm

The most common of all types of female orgasms is the clitoral orgasm. The clitoris is a group of nerve endings covered by the clitoral hood.

The clit is the most sensitive part of a woman’s body and an important factor in reaching an orgasm.

Many women cannot have an orgasm without clitoral stimulation, so if your partner has trouble finding it, draw them a freaking map, tattoo an arrow pointing, or leave a trail of breadcrumbs to lead them to it.

A study done in 2018 showed that 36.6 percent of female participants needed clitoral stimulation to have an orgasm.

Thirty-six percent of participants said they didn’t need the stimulation to orgasm, but it did intensify their orgasm.

I don’t know what geniuses came up with this idea for a study, but I am impressed. How did you pull that one off?

How do you achieve clitoral orgasms?

Thanks to this 2018 study of the female orgasm and countless hours of my experimentation, the easiest way to reach orgasm is by rubbing the clitoris with your finger in a circular motion.

Some women prefer direct contact with the clitoris, while others don’t. That part is all up to you to figure out. Have fun.

G-Spot Orgasm

The G-spot (yes, it exists) is on the front vaginal wall near the vaginal opening. It is where the clitoris, urethra, and vagina all intersect.

The G-spot is almost nonexistent when you aren’t aroused. (Do you get what I’m saying, guys?)

The increased blood flow from being sexually aroused causes it to swell, much like a man’s penis.

For some, the mere act of applying pressure is enough to reach an orgasm. For others, pressure combined with other stimulation leads to an orgasm.

How to achieve a G-spot orgasm?

A G-spot orgasm is obtained through penetrative sex. The best way to achieve a G-spot orgasm is to use a curved toy or finger inserted into the vaginal opening. Adding external stimulation to the clitoris or nipples will speed up the process and intensify your orgasm.

Vaginal Orgasm

A vaginal orgasm is an orgasm achieved through vaginal penetration alone. Only one in five women can reach orgasm this way.

During vaginal stimulation, other parts of the body may experience indirect stimulation; however, to have vaginal orgasms is with vaginal sex.

How to achieve vaginal orgasms?

A vaginal orgasm can be achieved through heterosexual sex or sex toys (click here to read our guide to the best of them). Direct or indirect stimulation of erogenous zones like the anterior wall (A-spot) and the cervix will increase sexual pleasure.

An A-spot and cervical orgasm require deep penetration. That same 2018 study showed that 18 percent of women could not reach orgasm through vaginal stimulation alone.

If you have trouble climaxing this way, you are not alone. Female sexual dysfunction affects many women all over the world. Sexual and relationship therapy can be helpful.

Anal Orgasm

Anal orgasms are orgasms as the result of anal penetration.

The location of the rectum near the pelvic floor muscles and clitoris is what makes these orgasms possible.

Since the pelvic floor muscles are so sensitive, stimulation through anal sex can lead to an anal orgasm.

How do you achieve anal orgasms?

Anal sex is the only way to achieve this type of orgasm. This can be done through sexual activity or with a sex toy. I suggest starting anal play slowly by using your finger before inserting anything larger and using lots of lube.

Nipple Orgasm

Nipple orgasms are achieved by stimulation of the nipples. (Shocking, isn’t it?)

The nipple is filled with nerve endings.

Nipple stimulation activates the same nerve pathways in the brain as genital stimulation, resulting in orgasm.

The body releases oxytocin, which causes the same vaginal muscle contractions associated with an orgasm.

How do you achieve nipple orgasms?

Nipple stimulation can be done by licking, touching, kissing, sucking, or pinching the nipples. In a study of 213 women, 19 percent said they had achieved a breast orgasm with genital stimulation.

Blended Orgasm

A blended orgasm usually involves clitoral stimulation combined with another form of stimulation, but it can be achieved in other ways.

Stimulating multiple erogenous zones leads to greater sexual satisfaction and more intense orgasms.

A blended orgasm has been known to last anywhere from one to fifteen minutes minutes.

How do you achieve blended orgasms?

The easiest way to achieve orgasm this way is to stimulate the clitoris during sexual activity. The most common way to a blended orgasm is with a G-spot and clitoral stimulation.

One easy way to do this is to use a bullet or egg vibrator to stimulate the clit during penetration.

Multiple Orgasms

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that multiple orgasms mean more than one during one session (or whatever you call it) of sexual activity.

Not all women can experience one orgasm through sexual stimulation, so if your experience multiple orgasms, consider yourself lucky.

Sex toys and a partner who knows what they are doing are your best bet. The more turned on you are, the easier reaching orgasm is. Clitoral stimulation is a must for this to happen.

Squirting Orgasm

A squirting orgasm is like a unicorn. Many have heard of its existence, but few have experienced it.

A squirting orgasm is a female ejaculation. I can tell you for a fact that they are real. I have experienced it for a time or two. (And I mean literally a time or two)

Focusing on the G-spot is the best way to have a squirting orgasm.

By stimulating the G-spot, you also stimulate the Skene’s gland (female prostate), located above the G-spot.

Due to its location, the only way to stimulate Skene’s gland is by stimulating the G-spot. The gland drains into the urethra, causing ejaculation.

How do you achieve a squirting orgasm?

Building up to an orgasm is important to having a squirting orgasm. Rushing through things will get you nowhere. It is best to take your time and fully enjoy the experience.

Find sexual stimulation, such as erotica, toys, or porn to heighten your arousal. The more aroused you are, the easier it be.

Insert a curved finger or toy into the vaginal opening, pulling up toward your stomach wall to find your G-spot. Press down on the outside of your stomach in the same spot as your other hand. Breathe deeply while increasing pressure on the G-spot.

Orgasms Outside of Sex

Believe it or not (I get paid either way), it is possible to have an orgasm without any sexual pleasure. Everyday activity, such as working out, can cause a sexual response during nonsexual situations.

Exercise Orgasm/Coregasm

A coregasm, or exercise-induced orgasm, is reached through a core workout. Abdominal exercises, climbing, and lifting weights have triggered these orgasms.

When you exercise, your blood pressure increases, causing more blood flow. The increase in blodflow causes a sexual reaponse in a nonsexual situation.

How to reach coregasm

Adding kegels to high-intensity ab workouts increases your chances of bringing on an orgasm. There you go if you ever needed a reason to hit the gym. Exercises that increase the chances of having a coregasm:

Adding twenty minutes of cardio to the beginning of your workout will increase blood flow to your genitals, increasing your chances for having a coregasm.

Sleep Orgasm

Sleep orgasms or “wet dreams” are often associated with adolescent males. However, they are just as common for women.

Sleep orgasms often happen at times when you are not sexually active. It’s your brain’s way of letting you know you need to get some.

Some women have found it easier to achieve an orgasm during sleep than when awake. This is likely due to the fact that we don’t feel pain or discomfort during sleep.

How to achieve sleep orgasm

Some sex researchers suggest sleeping on your stomach will help achieve this orgasm. (Watching a few Pirates of the Caribbean movies before bed helps, too)

Your imagination plays a big role in your sex life. Fantasizing can bring closer to orgasm than just stimulation alone. Don’t be afraid to let your imagination run wild.


Many people believe having orgasms is necessary for having a happy sex life and relationship, but that isn’t always true. In any sexual situation, orgasm should not be the only goal. The stress from focusing too much on having an orgasm may actually make it harder to achieve.

It is better to reduce stress and fully enjoy the moment instead of focusing on the end goal. Doing this will increase sexual satisfaction and make having an orgasm of any kind much easier.

Experiment with different kinds of stimulation, scenarios, places, and toys to find what works best for you. Don’t worry if you have trouble reaching orgasm right away. The more you are in tune with your body, the easier it will become. Alright, young Padawan, may the force be with you.


How many types of female orgasms are there?

The number changes depending on who you ask. So far, I have learned about thirteen, but I am always researching this topic.

Can I have multiple orgasms in a row?

Luckily for women, the recovery time is much shorter than for men. This makes it possible to have as many orgasms as you can handle as often as you can handle them. Some women experience multiple orgasms back to back while others come down and have built up to it again.

What does an orgasm feel like?

Since everyone feels differently, there isn’t only one way to describe an orgasm. An orgasm is the peak of your sexual arousal.

How long does an orgasm typically last?

Usually, an orgasm lasts twenty to thirty seconds. Some women have said an orgasm lasted over a minute. However, these are normally instances of multiple orgasms.

What makes a female orgasm different from a male orgasm?

Male orgasms involve similar rhythmic contractions of the pelvic floor and genitals but don’t last as long as female orgasms. Male orgasms also involve ejaculation, while female orgasm usually doesn’t.
