Female orgasm explained: Study calculates how to stimulate every part of a woman’s body (even nipples, ears and TOES) to reach the Big O


The female orgasm has long been a source of fascination.

For more than a century researchers have focused on two things: the vagina and the clitoris.

Some say a woman can climax with vaginal stimulation alone. Many say the clitoris has to be involved.

However, a new study calls to expand our understanding of how a woman can be aroused.

In an extensive review of sex studies, researchers at Concordia concluded the female orgasm is not so elusive once a woman knows what turns her on.

With the right kind of touch and rhythm, a woman can experience orgasms from the clitoral, the G-spot, the cervix – and even non-genital areas such as the lips, nipples, ears, neck, fingers and toes.

It is particular to each individual woman.

But partners should not get complacent once they have found ‘the formula’, the researchers warn.

While a man’s erotic body map does not change, a woman’s ‘trigger zones’ are constantly evolving over time.

Different partners, settings, sounds, and experiences also play a significant role in laying the foundations as a woman builds up to a climax.

‘Unlike men, women can have a remarkable variety of orgasmic experiences, which evolve throughout the lifespan,’ said senior author Jim Pfaus, a psychology professor.

‘A woman’s erotic body map is not etched in stone, but rather is an ongoing process of experience, discovery and construction.’

Pfaus was working with Concordia graduate students Gonzalo Quintana Zunino and Conall Mac Cionnaith, as well as Mayte Parada from McGill University.

Together, they analyzed how the clitoris-vagina stimulation debate has developed since the Victorian times.

Fundamentally, they dismissed the idea that there is one set region for stimulation, and one set formula of how to arouse a woman.

Although the clitoris contains 8,000 nerve endings (double that of the penis), it is not an ‘on button’ that guarantees stimulation.

A crucial part of reaching a ‘whole’ orgasm is a woman intimately understanding how each part of her body responds to different sensations.

‘Orgasms don’t have to come from one site, nor from all sites. And they don’t have to be the same for every woman, nor for every sexual experience even in the same woman, to be whole and valid,’ Pfaus said

‘With experience, stimulation of one or all of these triggering zones are integrated into a ‘whole’ set of sensory inputs, movements, body positions, arousals and cues related to context.

‘That combination of sensory input is what reliably induces pleasure and orgasm during masturbation and intercourse.

‘That said, we think it’s likely this changes across the lifespan, as women experience different kinds of orgasms from different types of sensations in different contexts and with different partners.’
