Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

If you’re looking to try new things with your partner, you’ve probably thought about BDSM for beginners, the best kamasutra positions for your pleasure, or even astral sex. But have you ever considered aiming for a completely different type of orgasm instead?

That’s right – push all the frill aside and take things back to basics. It’s time to learn about the earth-shattering experience that every woman is capable of. Enter, the cervical orgasm.

What is a cervical orgasm?

It is apparently one of the most intense orgasms that you can have, and if you are able to relax enough during penetrative sex your partner can get deep enough to stimulate the cervix. This leads to the highly-coveted cervical orgasm, but it can take a while for a woman to be able to climax this way as it is in a tricky position in the deep centre of the vagina.

Holistic sex and relationship expert Kim Anami told Cosmopolitan: ‘It’s best to warm up with some other sexual positions first, and then ease into cervical penetration — which is actually just rubbing up against the cervix. We’re not looking to literally open the cervix or enter it. When I say “open,” I mean it in the sense of “opening and relaxing” rather than literally prying it open.’

So essentially, it’s stimulating the area to the point of orgasm.

How do I have a cervical orgasm?

Considering that your cervix is tucked away and will rarely have had much contact, initially it can be painful and it will take a bit of time to get used to the sensation. The point of your menstrual cycle will also affect how it feels – your cervix is super sensitive before menstruation, so try attempting it during ovulation (your peak arousal time).

However, after a bit of practice it can pave the way for some of the best orgasms of your life. The trick is to bring yourself close to orgasm, and ditch shallow strokes for deeper, cervix stimulation. It will feel different to a clitoral orgasm; rather than a gradual build up of intensity, it is described as a wave of peaks one after the other.

What are the best positions for a cervical orgasm?

Doggy-style is usually the gateway to deep penetration, but some women claim that after years of honing their skills they are able to have cervical orgasms from as little as their partner touching them.

So what are you waiting for? Best get practising…
