The clitoris is the pleasure center to every vulva owner’s station. Did you know that 80% of vulvas need the clitoris to orgasm? That means only 20% of women can orgasm from penetration alone. Even then, it’s hypothesized that the g-spot (an internal walnut textured vaginal pleasure spot) is connected to the clitoris. So statistically speaking, the clitoris is where it’s at for a lot of women.
When thinking back on grade school’s past, sex education is not the most glamorous times that come to mind. Awkward anatomical diagrams, 30-year-old animations, crossword puzzles filled with vocabulary words like “wet dream” and “fallopian tube”…
We here at SWE love variety; it’s the spice of your sex life! We’re all about mixing it up, trying new positions, products, toys and perspectives. There’s a reason so many of you write and ask Emily about inviting a third into your bedroom; you’re tired of your routine sex and ready to mix things up!
But we also know that there’s a place for the tried-and-true type of sex. Finding those positions that you know are going to work, that are physically comfortable and get the job done for everyone. And it’s true what they say: once you’ve mastered the basics of anything, you’re better prepared to master the more advanced techniques.
Q: DEAR EMILY,
While I have been masturbating since the beginning of high school, I’ve never had sex. The thing is, I rarely fully get off. I think the only time I have was while using a shower head. I use the Touch by We-Vibe, but once I can feel an orgasm coming on, it becomes harder and harder to get there because my clit becomes too sensitive.
Do you have any tips to help overcome this?
