Are orgasms good for you? The multiple health benefits of the Big O

AN orgasm a day really does keep the doctor away. The Big O creates a natural chemical reaction that’s better for your health and wellbeing than any pill.

It has been proven to beat stress and depression, relieve pain and reduce your risk of breast and prostate cancer.

But new research has now revealed that one in three women rarely, or never, has one. Scientists in New Jersey have been scanning women’s brains as they approach, experience and recover from an orgasm. They hope their findings, posted on YouTube, show what goes wrong in women who can’t climax.

But did you know there are 11 different types? Here, US psychologist MARINE BALFOUR reveals them all.

DURING sexual arousal the tissue surrounding the urethra becomes engorged with blood and the glands around it fill with prostatic fluid. This area on the front wall of the vagina becomes the mysterious and highly-sensitive G-spot.

Marine says: “This is actually very similar to male arousal. As a result, the urethral sponge becomes ‘erect’ and if you touch it, it feels firm. It’s a kind of female erection. The only difference is that it all happens inside a woman’s vagina.”

THIS orgasm is the result of clitoral stimulation.

Marine says: “The clitoris is the most sensitive area of the female body because it has a lot of nerve endings. If you are a man, imagine all the nerve endings in the penis poured into an area as small as a pea. The clitoris is so important to receiving pleasure that sexual arousal is always felt there on some level. That is why the clitoris is so responsive to certain kinds of touch.”

This is the most common type of orgasm experienced by women but it’s not the same for everyone.
Marine adds: “Sensitivity varies greatly from woman to woman. Some women prefer a light touch, others require stronger stimulation.”

THIS kind of orgasm takes longer to achieve and rhythmic thrusting is often the best way to get there.

Marine says: “This kind of female orgasm begins in the vagina and either stays focused in the pelvic and lower stomach areas or spreads from there. Many women describe it as less intense but more deeply felt. Again, it will differ from person to person.”

THIS rare kind of orgasm results in female ejaculation.

Marine explains: “The idea is that it releases negative emotions and fills a woman with a light, euphoric energy and a feeling of fulfilment and peace. It is very profound.”

THIS is the anterior fornix orgasm and is usually achieved by deep stimulation of the vagina.

Marine says: “It is the same wall where the G-spot is situated. In other words, this is a patch of sensitive tissue at the inner front end of the vaginal tube, between the cervix and the bladder.”

You can achieve this with deep thrusting during sex, probably in the missionary position.

THIS kind of orgasm is achieved by stimulating the area located almost all the way back in the deepest part of the back wall of the vagina, just before the cervix. It’s called the posterior fornix or “deep spot”.

Marine says: “Direct stimulation can cause very intense orgasms. This particular area is not widely known, so very few women have ever experienced those sensations.”

MARINE says: “This kind of female orgasm comes from the stimulation of a small area of sensitive erectile tissue located just above and on either side of the urethral opening. It is in the small area between the urethra and the vagina. If this region is gently caressed there is a powerful erotic response.”

THE nipples can connect to nerves in the female genitals — and stimulate an orgasm.

Marine says: “This type occurs during a peak of stimulation to the breasts. Many women feel a direct connection with their clitoris when their nipples are stimulated. Some feel increased sexual excitement when their nipples are stimulated but not all of them can experience the breast orgasm. This depends very much on how sensitive their nipples are.”

MARINE says: “It’s rare but the mouth plays a big role in the sexual nervous system. The mouth orgasm can take place during any sensual oral activity such as kissing, licking, sucking or performing oral sex. But you have to be very sensitive for it to happen. Many women describe the excitement as beginning in their lips and then spreading from the mouth to the genitals and all over the body.”

TOUCHING a woman’s skin, during a massage or even a facial, could bring her to orgasm.

Marine says: “It happens when you touch a part of the body not directly connected to the sexual nervous system.”

THIS happens when a woman is stimulated by a magazine, TV or a film.

Marine says: “Women become so turned on that they actually experience an orgasm from this excitement alone.”
