The Best Sexual Techniques for Women’s Arousal and Pleasure
Good sex can come down to good communication — how well you and your partner can articulate your needs and desires. Often, however, women just don’t have the words to describe what they enjoy or don’t have enough experience to suggest other techniques with Raipur Escorts Service. To facilitate sexual intimacy dialogue, a study published April 14, 2021, in PLoS One reported on a national survey conducted by the University of Indiana in concert with the OMGYES Research Group/For Goodness Sake that looked at the sexual experiences of thousands of American women to find out what made vaginal penetration more pleasurable for them.
Four Ways to Achieve Heightened Sexual Arousal
After analyzing the results from an international qualitative study, the researchers, Devon J. Hensel, PhD, an associate research professor at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, and Christiana von Hippel, ScD, an OMGYES research scientist, found a recurring pattern of four specific techniques that never really had words to describe them before. The team then looked closer into these four techniques using a cross-sectional, online, national probability survey of 3,017 American women ages 18–93.
"We took this deeper dive into the patterns to find out the percentage of women who used each technique during vaginal penetration and then looked at how those specific techniques impacted their pleasure," says Dr. In other words, they looked at the specific sexual moves and methods that turned them on.
The researchers gave terms for each of these sexual methods to help women identify and communicate what feels best to them.
- Angling Rotating, raising, or lowering pelvis and hips during penetration to adjust where inside the vagina the toy or penis rubs; 87 per cent of respondents used this method.
- Pairing A woman or her partner stimulates her clitoris with a finger or sex toy simultaneously with penetration. (69 per cent)
- Rocking The base of a penis or sex toy rubs against the clitoris constantly during penetration by staying inside the vagina rather than thrusting in and out. Usually used when the woman is on top. One of the respondents explained its allure: “We had to 'unlearn' the fast-pumping motions we had seen in porn. And we're both much happier with our new ways." (76 per cent)
- Shallowing Penetrative touch just inside the entrance of the vagina. Another respondent said, “I think this area is underrated. I can have amazing sex with penetration just going in an inch and never further.” (84 per cent)
Using Language for Sexual Techniques Is Powerful
“I think naming pleasure and pleasure techniques are specifically empowering and usable, so women can feel comfortable and confident using them with partners. They are also important for when women discuss their sex lives with friends, such as ‘I like this, why don’t you try that?’ To be able to specifically describe what they like and to be able to ask for it is incredibly empowering and helps women to feel like their voices are heard. There is also a normalizing effect when they realize that what they like is a pattern that's shared by lots of women,” says von Hippel.
More Research on Sexual Pleasure Is Needed
This survey did not ask women’s partners for feedback, which the team hopes to look at in the future. Von Hippel says, “What's often really interesting is how the communication happens, how the names of the techniques are used and how partners feel about that. OMGYES has been hearing from couples or just the men that this has changed the way they can connect and communicate, and he feels like he understands her more. For the first time, even though they maybe have been together for 20 years, something has finally clicked by having these words and having looked at the techniques together. Now they know there are always new things to explore, and the specifics of what feels good to her and how he can support her.”
