One woman reveals the secret to achieving a super orgasm

Forget multiple orgasms - it's all about the super orgasm

Jannette Davies had her first multiple orgasm when she was 16 years old. She quickly learned that she could easily orgasm multiple times, making her part of a select group of ‘super orgasmic’ women, some of whom are able to orgasm over 60 times. Only a small percentage of women are believed to have experienced this ‘super orgasm’ phenomenon, which is only now being studied in more depth. Jannette featured in the Channel 4 documentary The Super Orgasm, where she was required to achieve multiple orgasm on camera, as she lay inside an MRI scanner.

We caught up with her to hear about this (presumably very pleasant) experience.

How did you discover that you could have a super orgasm?

‘I had my first orgasm when I was 15 years old and it was completely unexpected. I had no idea about orgasms. They don’t teach you about it in sex education – I thought I was dying! Then about a year later, I had an orgasm which came and then it stuck. That was my first multiple orgasm. I can only have multiple orgasms from penetration – what we call the G-spot orgasm. It’s a very intense sensation, almost like you want to wee but you don’t. For me, the peak comes, then I go to a neutral place and then it peaks back up again. And sometimes it will happen back-to-back – I call it a wave of intensity.

I know some women who can have more than 60 orgasms, but I don’t understand how they walk afterwards! I usually have around five. The most I’ve had in one go was 10 or so and that was continuous. Although it’s hard to be exact because your mind shuts down during an orgasm. I do remember the first time I had an intense one because I couldn’t continue having sex – it was like my vagina stayed in this continuous contraction for a really long time. It was too much.’

Why do you think you’re able to achieve a super orgasm?

‘I am very open about my sexuality. I am a sex positive person – I run a company called Scarlet Ladies all about promoting sex positivity – and I think that is what really allows me to embrace my sexuality and understand what I want. I was raised a Christian and sex wasn’t discussed in my household, but when my mum found out that I had lost my virginity she was amazing. She took me to get my first sexual health and pregnancy test. She even signed me up for condom lessons at the clinic every Monday after school! Being educated about sex helped me to become more open about it. Then when I was 18 I started working in Ann Summers and I had the best manager in the world. She was so open about sex. She spoke about things that I had never heard anyone talk about. She said, “get yourself a vibrator”, and after using it regularly my orgasms got more intense and felt more controlled. I learned what works for my body and that is when I started demanding equality in the bedroom, I was like, “OK, if you want a blow job you need to give me head.”‘

How do you partners react when they realise you can have super orgasms?

‘I never tell them, it just happens. The worst thing is the expectation of it – after the documentary it’s been like “oh, if I have sex with her she is going to have multiple orgasms.” No. That isn’t how it works. Orgasming doesn’t come to me as naturally as it may seem. I have to work for it to make it happen.’

What would you say to women who are struggling to reach orgasm, or want to have better orgasms?

‘My one piece of advice for women is to get to know your body. A lot of young girls have sex because they have a boyfriend, but the most important thing is learning what works for you. I understood my body because I masturbated – and that is hands down the reason why I can have multiple orgasms. Communication is important, but you can’t communicate what you want from a partner if you don’t know yourself. I think when you are in denial of any sort or have something that you are holding back it makes it 10 times harder – we all know orgasms are in your mind.’
