Apparently There are 12 Female Orgasms - And This Is How To Have Them All

Lovehoney Student Sex Advice

If you had asked me how many different types of orgasms there were when I was 19, I probably would have said “…there are different types?”.

Sadly, like many young women, the only type of orgasm I knew about back then was the kind I was habitually faking.

But then I bought my first sex toy, and started being more vocal about what I needed in bed, and, because of this, I’ve learnt that there are at least 12 distinct types of orgasms that women can have.

I’ve not had all of them yet, mind you. But to paraphrase my good friend 50 Cent, this year my plan is to get off or die trying.

If you, too, are curious about this kind of 'Dirty Dozen', then just keep reading to find out what they are, and how you can have them.

10 Reasons Foreplay's the Key to a Fulfilling Sex Life

10-reasons-foreplay-key-to-fulfilling-sex-life

Over the holiday season, I was watching plenty of Christmas films (obviously), including one of my all-time favourites, The Holiday.

This year, I noticed a line that had somehow flown under my radar throughout my adult life.

Graham (Jude Law): "How do you feel about foreplay?"

Amanda (Cameron Diaz): "I think it's overrated. Significantly overrated."

WHAT?! I spend a lot of time advocating for foreplay. I don’t think people are using it to its full potential.

I love talking about the erogenous zones of the body, why the definitions of ‘foreplay’ and ‘sex’ are a little blurry, and why differentiating between those things can be damaging for people and their sex lives.
