Sex might not be all about the climax, but we’re pretty sure it’s the reason some people deem intercourse superior to so many other indulgences in life--yes, even good chocolate and wine!
Considering the journey it sometimes takes us ladies to “get there” (which is totally normal, by the way), orgasms of any strength are greatly appreciated. However, we’re here to shake things up by sharing expert tips and techniques for achieving more intense orgasms, whether you’re partnered up, or not.
There are several reasons why regular orgasms can actually improve your health, but now it’s time to focus on how to take something we already love to do and make it even better. Dr. Jennifer Berman, our favorite female sexual medicine specialist, urologist, and co-host of the Emmy-Award winning daytime talk show, “The Doctors,” is back with some words of wisdom on how to take the “Big O” to great new heights. Though, being the responsible and caring practitioner she is, Dr. Berman cautions, “The intensity of orgasm can change over time due to hormone changes, medication, or some other factor,” thereby reminding us not to be too hard on ourselves and, instead, go with the orgasmic flow.
1. Topical THC Enhancers
The latest trend-turned-lifestyle in sex and orgasm-enhancing treatments are pre-lubricants containing THC or CBD, short for Cannabidiol. It even has a name. Coined by Ashley Manta, CannaSexual® is a term “created to describe anyone who mindfully, deliberately combines sex and cannabis.” Recommended by Dr. Berman, CBD-infused oils have been shown to enhance sensation, ease discomfort in women who have pain during intercourse, even with vulvodynia or vaginismus, and promote intimacy. The topical psychoactive does not necessarily get you high, either, since it is not intended to be ingested orally, and can be used partnered or solo.
2. Mental and Tantric Exercises
Though she’s well-aware of the orgasmic disorder preventing women from “turning off the chatter” in their brains, Dr. Berman still recommends practicing mindfulness during sex and masturbation, even if it’s only an attempt (personal tip: a blindfold works wonders for calming my mind during sex). As with all things, greater practice yields greater results, including the potential for more intense orgasms. In addition to focusing on the present, tantric exercises are another option. There are plenty of internet resources for getting started, or you can try a book designed to explore tantric sex through the female perspective.

3. The Womanizer Pro
Whether with a partner, or during masturbation, incorporating toys is a great way to enhance your orgasm. Specifically suggested by Dr. Berman, this special toy, called the Womanizer Pro, is designed with “Pleasure Air Technology” that focuses on the clitoris. The manufacturer describes the experience as soft pressure waves gently sucking your clitoris, resulting in a new kind of climax. There are 12 different levels for more intense orgasms and an XL head for different body types. The reviews for the Womanizer Pro are so outstanding, I’m already considering ordering one for myself! “Zero vibration fatigue. Zero desensitization. This is a top-shelf experience right here,” said one verified purchaser on Amazon. “This amazing device had me coming in about 10 seconds. It might've been less time than that. I honestly lost count. All I know is I had the most intense orgasm I think I've ever had,” said another.
4. Kegel Exercises
Keeping your pelvic floor strengthened has a variety of benefits, including more intense orgasms. Dr. Berman pointed out that enhancing pelvic floor strength and tone engorges the blood vessels, aiding the vagina with constricting the penis or toy during intercourse or masturbation. Additionally, these same muscles being used are also contracted during climax and some are directly connected to the clitoral area, as well. Intentionally working the muscles during sex may aid in more intense orgasms, but doing some work outside of the bedroom can help, too. Try pelvic thrusts with the help of a resistance band, or utilize kegel exercisers, like these Luna Beads.
5. Different Positions
Sometimes a simple change of positions, or focusing on other erogenous zones may be all you need for more intense orgasms. Dr. Berman suggests keeping an open mind, especially if you’re having trouble climaxing altogether. She reminds us that not all women can orgasm from peno-vaginal intercourse alone, and recommends exploring other avenues. In addition to introducing toys, mix up your positioning. Sex from behind or masturbating on your stomach may help you stimulate areas you couldn’t otherwise reach. Dr. Berman also wants us to be aware that the need for anal stimulation is not something to be embarrassed about, stating “some women can only achieve orgasm through anal penetration due to a network of nerves.”
6. Medical Help
If you’re still struggling to achieve orgasm, or just want to enhance the ones you already have, Dr. Berman is a leading expert in cutting-edge medical treatments designed to enhance vaginal health and function. When asked about the procedures offered at Berman Sexual Health, she mentioned the benefits of ThermiVa, or radiofrequency heat and laser treatments, saying they “improve collagen, elasticity of vaginas, and facilitate new nerve growth,” with a “secondary benefit in terms of sensation, like clitoral sensation and orgasm.”
