Some people tell us they’re not sure they’ve had an orgasm. If you aren’t sure, you ain’t had one.  Moreover, thinking there is only one type of orgasm is like thinking Baskin-Robbins offers only one flavor of ice cream: vanilla.  

Depending on the medical expert or sex therapist you ask, estimates of types of orgasms range anywhere from three to more than 20. Mainly, you need to know that there are many different ways to trigger an orgasm, which is usually how they are classified. For example, nipple, anal, prostate (P-spot), vaginal, clitoral, or G-spot orgasms are all named for the location stimulated to produce the orgasmic release.  One article in mindbodygreen.com, an online health site, says there are 24 types of orgasms a person can experience, depending on which body parts are stimulated; they may also vary in how intense or pleasurable they are. However, according to Justin Lehmiller, Ph.D., a social psychologist, author of the Sex and Psychology blog, and expert at Lovehoney, research indicates that all orgasms are actually the same physical experience.  “Based on the data I’ve seen and my conversations with scientists who study the physiology of orgasm, it does not seem to be the case that orgasms induced by different forms of stimulation ‘look’ different physiologically,” Lehmiller said in the mbg article. “Anatomically, an orgasm refers to a series of contractions that occur in the genital region, so if you define ‘orgasm’ solely in terms of a physiological response, an orgasm is an orgasm.”  We share all of this with you because we believe adult toys are the best ways to explore and discover your uncharted ecstasy zones that will take you to O-ville. Of course, the journey can be as much fun as arriving at your greatly anticipated destination.  Let’s take a look at one of the best-known orgasms, the now legendary G-spot, which is considered a type of vaginal orgasm. Initially named after Ernst Gräfenberg, a German physician who wrote about its existence in the 1950s, the G-spot became more commonly known and desired several decades later. In the 1980s, the concept of a singular erogenous zone that, when stimulated, can lead to powerful orgasm began to gain popularity.  That G-spot zone is located on the front wall of the vagina, usually about 2 inches in, approximately where the clitoris, vagina, and urethra all intersect. Because of that proximity to the clitoris, it can feel good when a woman presses against it or stimulates it with her curved finger. A toy can usually give you the optimal angle for hitting the G-spot.  With our ample sample toys, including a full range of G-spot vibrators, we can help you understand what works well to stimulate your G-spot. For example, the Rabbit Vibrators slip in and the shaft invigorates your G-spot, while the top half, the rabbit’s ears, energizes your clitoris.  Women – and men – should also know that vaginal orgasms are much more difficult to achieve than a clitoris-stimulated orgasm. That anatomical fact has been the source of much consternation for women for multiple millennia, since less than one in five women can orgasm solely from vaginal penetration, whether by fingers, toys, or penises. Experts tell us that, because the clitoris wraps around the vaginal canal internally, it can become stimulated during penetration. That means many vaginal orgasms may just be less intense forms of clitoral orgasm. Ultimately, no one should feel guilty if they can’t attain orgasm through vaginal penetration; it’s just not a very common way to climax.  You should also be aware that some sex positions work better than others to attain the range of potential orgasms. As you become more experienced with different types of orgasmic stimulation that works best for you, you’ll perfect the positions that facilitate those orgasms.  One of the best ways to learn how to apply and heighten your enjoyment of toys is by watching instructional videos online. We offer a diverse selection of videos on our Ambiance website to help our customers maximize and enhance their experiences with their lovemaking toys alone or with a partner.  Additionally, you should check out the sizeable selection of stimulating gels for him or her that bring more blood to the areas you are stimulating and make it easier for you to have an orgasm or lead you to a more explosive climax.  In the same way people can work their way up through a lot of rock climbing equipment, for instance, there is a wide range of adult toys that you can employ to get you off, whether you are a seasoned sex expert or a curious novice. Beginners may want to try smaller, less powerful vibrators or other toys for the first time.  So start small. Get to know your body. Get to know what feels best and turns you on.
