Wanna learn how to improve orgasm chances? You’ve come to the right place – we’ll have you coming in no time! But in all seriousness, while comfort, lack of stress, the right form of physical touch, and for women, special attention to the clitoris, are crucial, it turns out there are actually some seemingly random things that can help you achieve orgasm. Keep reading to find out four of them!
Yes, this is what we mean by seemingly random. But there is a reason after all! A university actually conducted a study in which they found that when socks were not worn, only 20% of couples both achieved orgasm. However, when socks were worn, 80% of couples did! Those who conducted the study surmised that socks boost circulation, which in turn increases blood flow to sexy nether regions.
All we’re left wondering is… do stockings have the same effect? They’re definitely likely to increase blood flow, though it might not be due to circulation! Scientific or not, you might as well sex up your feet with some of our favorite stockings like the classic Lace Top Stay Up Thigh Highs and the seductive Contrast Cuban Stockings.
Be (or Be With Someone Who Is) Funny
It’s not news that women love men who make them laugh. But as it turns out, being with someone who is funny is also a fun lesson in how to improve orgasm chances. The facts come from the Evolutionary Psychology Journal, which conducted a study which found that women tend to have an increased amount of orgasms when they bedded down with funny guys. A related finding is that funny people tend to be viewed as more attractive than, well, not-so-funny people, so the moral of the story is… laughter is sexy!
Have Anal Sex
This one might actually come as a surprise, but the numbers come from a study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, so you know it’s legit. Here’s the rub: a whopping 94% of women had an orgasm when their last sexual experience included anal sex, compared to a respectable 81% for those who had oral sex, and a solid 65% for those who had good old-fashioned vaginal sex. Our guess is that women who have anal sex are naturally more open-minded about their desires and thus more attuned to how to improve orgasm chances to begin with, but don’t take our word for it – give it a try yourself!

Open Your Mind
This point, like the one above, is a little bit about embracing your unique desires with an open mind, but it’s even more about accepting that men and women can both be as dominant as they naturally feel. What exactly does this have to do with how to improve orgasm chances? Well, one study in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that women who believe men are naturally more dominant tend to have fewer orgasms. That’s not to say that women who prefer dominant men won’t have more orgasms, but it comes down to the belief that it’s natural – so open your mind, and more orgasms should follow!
Last but not least, we might add that while we love orgasms and love to help people learn how to improve theirs, it’s also worth pointing out that orgasms aren’t equally important to all people. You can have awesome sex and a great sex life without regular orgasms, if that’s what is fulfilling to you.
