In Kim Anami's The Multi-Orgasmic Woman, she explains the Taoist belief in three types of female orgasms, describes what they each are like and how to get there. If you're too lazy to click the link (and, girl, that is truly lazy), I'll break it down for you. The three types -- clitoral, G-spot and cervical -- are akin to a series of gates that need to be entered in progression for a women to enter "an ecstatic state of arousal." Ecstatic state of arousal sounded a lot more interesting than my back-up plan of laundry-folding, so this was something I wanted to learn more about.
If you or your woman has ever had an orgasm (and if not, put it on the to-do list--stat!) it was probably the clitoral. This is the easiest type to achieve, but also the more superficial. Freud, maddeningly, was right, and there is a deeper (in both senses of the word) kind of vaginal orgasm that comes from stimulation of the G-spot. The nerves on the clitoris (and here is the point where I will stop using the word "clitoris") are concentrated and external, while the pelvic nerves are deeper and more spread out, creating "a more generalized, deeper sensation," writes Anami.
The third type is the cervical orgasm, which is kind of like the Big Foot of orgasms, rumored and sometimes observed, but not verified by science. This is the deepest and most transcendent orgasm of them
all. I will let Anami describe it because I, shamefully, have not "been through the third gate," so to speak (and now that I know there IS one, boy, am I miffed!):
Uh, did I mention I was miffed? This morning I got coffee with friends, which was fun and all, but there was no "whole-body shimmer" involved--I'm quite sure of it. But what about you? Have you experienced the mysterious cervical orgasm? How many "orgasmic gates" have you been through? And do you think that Orgasmic Gates sounds more like the name of a fancy retirement community or a sketchy clothing-optional commune? Do tell.
