Few would argue that the orgasm is the ultimate gratification. It’s exhilarating, euphoric and unlike anything of this earth. The actual experience varies from person to person. However, with patience and an open mind, nearly everyone is capable of achieving orgasm. Read on for some tips to help you get orgasm-fit!
Practice breathing techniques. The body often tenses up right before climax, constraining oxygen. When oxygen is reduced, blood flow weakens. As a result, the orgasm is shortened or never achieved. By performing regular breathing exercises, you can train yourself to breathe properly at all times. This will result in higher oxygen saturation; improved blood flow; and stronger, longer, more frequent orgasms.
Work your PC muscles. The pelvic floor muscles automatically convulse during orgasm. By flexing them during sex, you can prolong the pleasurable contractions and, in some cases, multiply the fun. Strengthen your PC muscles with a kegel exerciser suitable to your ability level—Kegel Balls, Pleasure Pearls or Ben-Wa Balls.
Follow a Mediterranean-style diet. Studies have shown that a diet high in fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, olive oil and fish, and low in red meat, can have a positive effect on sexual function, including one’s ability to orgasm. There are a variety of sexually nutritious recipes available in “The New Intercourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook.”
Explore your body. How can you expect anyone else to please you if you can’t please yourself? Take time out to get to know your body. Become acquainted with your own anatomy and what feels good. Try stimulating the various areas around the genitals, including the clitoris, G-spot and vulva. For self-pleasuring tips and techniques, check out the masturbation guide, “Tickle Your Fancy.”

- The average female orgasm can last anywhere from six to ten seconds. Some women even experience a 20-second orgasm.
- According to researchers, it’s possible for some women to orgasm as many as 100 times per hour.
- The average woman needs about 20 minutes of arousal time before her clitoris is sensitive enough to respond to stimulation and begin building toward climax. (Apply a dab of Pure Satisfaction® to enhance sensitivity).
- The most likely time for a woman to experience sexual pleasure is during her menstrual period. This is due to the increase in blood circulation around the groin area.

“How can I describe to you, a man, what it feels like to a woman? Think of a light switch with a rheostat control. As you begin to turn it on, the bulb begins to get bright, then brighter, and brighter and finally in a blinding flash is fully lit. It is so good.” – Marilyn Monroe
