The 8 Best Ways to Achieve a Female Orgasm

Oh, the female orgasm – one of God’s true wonders. That beautiful little muscle spasm that starts with a twitch and ends with a giant wave of warm pleasure running through every inch of one’s body. Despite this feminine miracle, a large proportion of women struggle to climax and those that can have to be laid in a certain position, on a certain time of day, with a certain vibrator to even have a slight chance of experiencing one. Shocking research suggests up to 50% of women do not orgasm when they have sexual intercourse even with external stimulation (Brenner, 2017), further research shows 10-15% of women have never experienced a female orgasm at all (James, 2009).
