A good sex life takes time and effort to maintain. It won’t always be easy — our busy lives are taxing and often leave us tired and devoid of the imagination and motivation required to keep up the pace. Having good sex doesn’t necessarily mean spending hours and hours of frolicking, it can be as simple as doing something a little different just for a change. Orgasmtool brings you the best intimate products and most up-to-date know-hows for the betterment of your sex life with your partner!
The clitoris and, speaking figuratively, it's anything but tiny. In fact, it's a powerful organ of sexual pleasure that comes complete with a surprising number of fun facts. You'll be surprised by how much this tiny organ's got going on under the hood.
It's highly sensitive!
The clitoris contains at least 8,000 sensory nerve endings. To put that into perspective, the penis has about 4,000. That makes this tiny area the most sensitive part of a woman’s erogenous zone. And while the clitoris is quite small, its powerful sensations can spread across a woman's pelvic area by affecting 15,000 other nerve endings!
The clitoris actually grows during a woman's lifetime. No, it isn't getting stretched out from too much sexy fun. The growth occurs as a result of hormonal changes in the body. When a girl’s puberty begins, the clitoris will start increasing in size. By the time puberty ends, the clitoris will be about 1.8 times larger. By the time a woman is 32 years old, the clitoris will be almost four times as big as it was at the onset of puberty. It doesn’t end there. After menopause, the clitoris will be about seven times larger than it was at birth! Don't freak out - this is still a very small area, so the change in size won't be very noticeable. And hey, it might help to explain why older women often report such hot sex!
A clitoral orgasm involves between 3-15 contractions and can last from 10-30 seconds - though the fact that women also have pelvic contractions may mean it seems longer, and some women can have a series of 'multiple' clitoral orgasms. Even an average clitoral orgasm lasts longer than even the best male orgasm!
The simplest way to stimulate the clitoris is with your fingers. However, many would say the best and quickest way is to use vibrators as the playful thought of using a toy instead of the usual finger method for a quick arousal will be more stimulating psychology.
Even if you haven't personally experienced its power, you've heard about the G-spot: an erogenous zone located inside the vagina that can produce some pretty intense sensations. The Gräfenberg Spot, often called the G-Spot, is defined as a bean-shaped area of the vagina. Some women report that it is an erogenous zone which, when stimulated, can lead to strong sexual arousal, powerful orgasms and female ejaculation.
The location of the G-Spot is typically reported as being about 50 to 80 mm (2 to 3 in) inside the vagina, on the front wall.
Women usually need direct clitoral stimulation to orgasm, and G-Spot stimulation may be best applied by using both manual stimulation and vaginal penetration.
Two primary methods have been used to define and locate the G-Spot as a sensitive area in the vagina:
- Self-reported levels of arousal during stimulation.
- Stimulation of the G-Spot leads to female ejaculation.
One common sex toy used in G-Spot stimulation is the specially-designed G-Spot vibrator. This is a phallus-like vibrator that has a curved tip which attempts to make G-Spot stimulation easy.
Kegel exercises are the rhythmic clenching and unclenching of the pubococcygeus (PC) muscles, which hold your pelvic organs in place and control urine flow. But your PCs also have a friskier function: They're the muscles responsible for the contractions you feel during climax. Though Kegel exercises don't actually tighten your vagina, they tone and strengthen your vaginal muscles, boosting your arousal. They also cause a tighter grip during intercourse and more intense contractions during orgasm because more blood gets sent to your below-the-belt region.
Kegel balls, also called Ben-Wa balls, are small weighted devices that can help strengthen a woman's vaginal and pelvic floor muscles.
USING KEGEL BALLS:
Isolate your pubococcygeus (PC) muscle. This is the muscle your kegel ball exercises will work. Move as if you were trying to stop your urine mid-stream. The muscle you contract is the PC muscle. This is the motion you'll be making as you perform the exercises. It feels like squeezing or pulling the pelvic floor muscles up toward the lower back. Alternately, you can find this muscle by placing a finger in your vagina and squeezing down until you feel the PC muscle tighten.
Insert the kegel balls. Find a comfortable, relaxed position, such as sitting or standing, and gently push the balls into your vaginal opening. Stop just as they're completely in, don't press them to the back of the vagina or up near the cervix. Close your legs to help keep them in place as you position yourself for your exercises.
Perform the sitting exercise. Sit with your legs still closed. Isolate the PC muscle and use it to try to move the balls back and forth. If initially you can't move the balls back and forth, focus on squeezing the balls and holding it for a few seconds, then relaxing for a few seconds. The University of Maryland Medical center recommends performing kegel exercises 10 times, three times per day.
Perform the standing exercise. The standing exercise uses the weight of the balls and the force of gravity to make you work your PC muscle. Stand and position your feet shoulder-width apart. Use your PC muscle to hold the balls in your vagina. If you stop contracting your PC muscle, the balls will fall out. Perform this exercise three times per day, working each time to hold the balls in place longer.
Perform the squatting exercise. The squatting exercise combines elements of both the sitting and standing exercises. Place your feet as wide apart as you can. Bend your knees slightly to move into an easy squat. Use your PC muscle to both hold the kegel balls in place and move them back and forth. Move into a deeper squat to make the exercise more challenging.
Use the balls during routine activities. This is similar to the standing exercise. Use your PC muscle to hold the balls in place while you do housework, go for a brief walk or take a shower. Make sure you're strong enough to hold the balls in place so they don't fall out at potentially embarrassing moments.
Remove the kegel balls by sweeping a finger into the vagina, behind the first ball and gently pulling downward. Wash with warm water and very mild soap. Rinse well, making sure to remove all soap residue as soap can irritate the delicate vaginal tissues.
