As a relationships blogger, one of the questions I get asked most often is how to have an orgasm. So, today, my dear readers, we're going to explain exactly how...
Genius sex therapist Mary Jo Rapini spoke to me on the phone, and she shared this brilliant advice...
Q: How can a woman have her first orgasm?
A: Take a hot bath or shower. You'll have a better chance of orgasm, since warm water relaxes you. Then just touch yourself. Start with the clitoris, go in a circular motion and see what type of pressure feels good. Try this for 10-15 minutes and do it a few times a week; you'll learn so much about yourself.
Q: What if she doesn't know where her clitoris is?
A: If you don't know your body parts, you could get a book or look up female anatomy online. Make sure you identify (and befriend) your clitoris. Interestingly, the only purpose of the clitoris is to give you pleasure and bring you to orgasm. It has no other function! It’s just there to help you feel good.
Q: What about vibrators?
A: I'm a big believer in vibrators. I love the Hatachi--it's gentle and waterproof! Vibrators can be very effective on the outside, on your clitoris; you don't have to put it inside you, if you don't want. (Some young women feel nervous about that.)
Q: Any last words of advice?
Masturbation is so healthy. It helps improve your mood and immune system, and reduces stress and anxiety. Enjoy!
Thank you so much, Mary Jo! Dear readers, have you ever had an orgasm? Many? Not sure? What's your favorite way to have one? I'd love to hear your thoughts...xo
