Information about increasing sexual pleasure in women is one of the most common requests we get from both men and women in our practices. Whether you are male or female, you will benefit from a few tips on how to increase sexual pleasure in women.
It is important to understand that there are many ways for females to experience sexual pleasure. With or without a partner; Internal or external; orgasm or not. There are many reasons why different forms of intimacy with your partner would be pleasurable and it does not always have to involve an orgasm.
Some women find in pleasurable enough just to spend intimate time with her partner and does not necessarily even need to orgasm to experience sexual pleasure. These moments of pleasure could be: Having a bath together, giving each other a massage, just lying in bed talking, having a nice meal together... If there is an orgasm involved, it also doesn’t always happen in the same way.
The different types of orgasms are:
Only about a third of females can reach an orgasm from vaginal penetration alone (only internal stimulation). Another third needs clitoral stimulation together with penetration (a combination orgasm), and the other third will orgasm from clitoral stimulation alone (a clitoral orgasm). Only a small percentage of women can orgasm from stimulation of areas other than their genitals.
