Understanding the Female Anatomy

The female anatomy is beautiful, but complex.

Understanding the outer and inner workings of everything that makes up this zone of the body is key to bringing around the right pleasure response.

What you need to know about the female anatomy

You need to know exactly what makes up all the parts of the female anatomy.

Don’t be embarrassed if you aren’t sure where everything is located. It’s never too late to learn.

Although most people refer to the female genitalia as the ‘vagina,’ the reality is that this is just ONE part of the female sexual anatomy.

The correct term for the complete female sexual anatomy is the vulva, which includes the clitoris, the labia majora (outer lips), and the labia minora (inner lips).

There is also the vagina which leads into the vaginal canal. All of these parts are engaged and working together during sexual activity.

Other hotspots include the perineum and the anus if she enjoys having those parts of her body touched as well.

Many women derive increased pleasure from being touched in all these areas.

Of course, you always want to check with her about her preferences, what she likes, and what she may not like.

She may be shy about voicing what she enjoys, but the more you understand about her anatomy the better off you’ll both be in exploring her needs in bed.

Let’s get a little deeper into exploring the pleasure zones of the female anatomy regarding a couple of key areas.

The G-Spot

Do you know how to locate her G-spot?

The Grafenberg spot, or G-spot, as it’s more commonly called, is an important part of the female sexual anatomy.

It’s named for the German gynecologist who discovered this erogenous zone back in the 1940s.

Some sex researchers feel that the G-spot is an extension internally of the outer clitoris.

They also feel that stimulation of the G-spot could trigger a vaginal orgasm.

There is some disagreement on the subject though, which is why the G-spot continues to be a mystery to many people.

Since it’s also inside the woman’s vaginal canal, it’s also a spot that you can’t see with your own eyes.

That makes it more complicated to find because it’s not just right out in the open.

Don’t worry though, here are the instructions to locate this spot.

In order to find the G-spot, it’s located two to three inches inside the vaginal canal at the front of the vaginal wall.

Hook your finger inside, and tap the spongy area of the vaginal wall under where her urethra is on the outside of her vagina.

Stimulating this spot can lead to female ejaculation during an orgasm.

Scientists have studied the sexual responses in women by using an ultrasound to see the physiological changes to the G-spot during sexual activity.

The spot slightly swells up during arousal, may feel a little bumpy, and stimulation from it can feel a bit different for everyone.

Touching this spot with your finger during manual stimulation of the outer vulva, including the clitoris, can bring about an orgasm easier for many women.

Hint to a better orgasms

Using both hands to get the job done is the way to go with this one if she struggles to have an orgasm during intercourse alone.

There are also specific styles of sex toys that are meant to target the G-spot during sexual activity that may help get her to orgasm faster.

Exploring the G-spot may be one of the keys to making her experience feel a lot better.

The C-Spot

The C-spot is otherwise known at the clitoris.

This is one of the most important parts of the female anatomy that needs a lot of attention during sex.

Don’t underestimate the importance of stimulating the clitoris properly.

So where is the clitoris located? It’s under the clitoral hood which is where the inner labia meet at the top of the vulva but below the pubic bone.

It feels almost like a little button under the skin.

Containing thousands of nerve endings, the clitoris is the size of a pea and can increase sexual pleasure when rubbed the right way.

Pro Tip: Want to experience enhanced clitoral pleasure? Enjoy orgasmic bliss with Promescent's Female Arousal Gels.

Starting with light pressure, and just one finger, touch the clitoris and gently rub in a circular motion.

Increase the number of fingers to two or three in order to touch more of the surface around the clitoris.

We recommend using our Female Arousal Gel when performing this form of stimulating pleasure.

She should be able to tell you whether or not she likes more or less intense pressure.

Vary your strokes a bit by going up and down, side to side, and in the circular motion.

You may need to increase your speed and rhythm, as well, to bring her to orgasm by touching the clitoris.

Every woman has her own unique triggers for personal pleasure

Keep in mind that every woman is different. How they like to be touched is a personal experience that she may or may not be able to explain.

The more you communicate with her the better off you’ll be in figuring out what she wants in bed.

4 Techniques for Having Orgasms

1: Sex Toys

Sex toys can add that extra something a woman needs to climax.

There are toys that you can use on her or wear while having sex to provide that extra clitoral stimulation.

Pro Tip: Promescent's Premium Adult Sex Toys for men, women, and couples. Guaranteed to deliver mind blowing, out of this world orgasms.

Some types of sex toys she may enjoy trying with you are vibrators, dildos, and vibrating cock rings.

The last type especially can help to stimulate the clitoris because it is a ring that goes around the penis, and has a vibrating bullet-shaped device on top that will rub against her clitoris during intercourse.

A vibrator with a clitoral attachment that can stimulate her both externally and internally while inserted is a good idea.

Ideas for your next date night

Explore different options until she finds the one that makes all her orgasm dreams come true.

It may also be a fun date night to shop for these toys together.

Many upscale sex shops cater to couples and go the extra mile to make sure the woman doesn’t feel shy about exploring her needs when it comes to sex toys.

They may have some very helpful salespeople that can show you some of the options and will answer any questions you may have about certain toys.

Purchase a few different styles to use in the bedroom.

You never really know what’s going to help her achieve orgasm until you try some of these fun devices.

2: Oral Stimulation

Going down on your partner may help her climax easier.

The combination of your mouth and your fingers can help her achieve a smashing, earth-shattering climax.

This is especially true if you try the Kivin Method. This is where you position yourself horizontally instead of vertically under her leg.

By using this position it can give you access to more surface area of her clitoris with the ability to use your tongue going left to right, instead of up and down.

Some people find this actually feels better than the traditional oral sex positioning and can make her climax much faster.

Be generous with the amount of oral sex you provide your partner. This goes for her as well as one of the most fun and rewarding parts of sexual activity.

3: The Right Sexual Positions

The right sexual position can also put her in a better place to orgasm.

The woman on top position is usually successful.

This includes the fact that friction can be achieved with her on top rubbing her clitoris against the man’s pubic area during intercourse.

She’s able to control the speed and rhythm more easily during sex as opposed to the man being on top. Sometimes it’s hard for her to orgasm in the basic missionary position.

Expert Insight: Interested in last in longer? Check out this insightful article about which sex positions will help you last longer in bed.

Or some people prefer doggy style because she can stimulate her clitoris herself, or you can reach around and touch her during intercourse.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with all kinds of different positions.

It may be helpful to purchase a book that has some easy to understand diagrams of things you can try in bed.

Seeing pictures or diagrams make complex positions easier to understand than just reading descriptions about them.

Try the “Little Black Book of Sex Positions” or the tried and true, “Kama Sutra” which has been around in one form or another since 400 BC.

There are many books about Kama Sutra (the name of the erotic God of love) for beginners which are easy to understand and use in your own bedroom.

4: Masturbation

Percentage of women that have never experienced an orgasm

There are some women out there that have never had an orgasm. It’s estimated that around 10-15 percent of women have never had one.

Encourage her to masturbate, if she doesn’t already, to figure out what feels best on her own.

Then you can continue to explore how to make her climax together, but until she is able to cross over that threshold alone, she may be too self-conscious to have one with a partner.

Still Struggling? Extra Help With Female Arousal Gel

If your partner is still struggling to have an orgasm, there is a product that you can try together.

It’s our Promescent Female Arousal Gel. As a warming gel that you apply to the clitoris, it’s a game-changer when it comes to making the woman feel extra sensations.

Women can use it solo or with a partner during sex.

It feels super slick and smooth for an extra sexy experience that caters to female arousal in just the right way.

Setting the Mood

Getting ready to have an orgasm also needs to have the right mood in place.

That might include putting on some sexy lingerie, lighting some candles, having a glass of wine, and taking the time to cater to her needs.

Setting the mood to help achieve orgasm

Sometimes it’s hard to give in to the mental and physical aspects of sexual enjoyment when life is so stressful.

Having a stressful job, a busy family life with kids, and a home to take care of can sometimes make a woman feel like having an orgasm is just another thing to think about on her huge to-do list.

It can be hard for her to turn off her brain to enjoy being in the moment of sexual pleasure.

The more you can help her relax, let go, and give in to the experience of the wonderful sensations had during sex, the more likely she’ll be able to orgasm.

Sex should be a relaxing, but stimulating part of the day that you look forward to for a sexual release that is great for your body, as well as, your mind.

That post-orgasm glow is real.

Plus, the more satisfying sex you have the better connection you’ll have with your partner.

Consider Adding Lube

For frictionless pleasure, consider using lube.

Many women don’t naturally get very lubricated during sex. This can be due to hormonal reasons, body type, and medications they might be taking.

You can easily compensate for this fact by using just the right lubrication.

Our Promescent family of lubrication is here for you.

We have many different styles of lube to suit every lifestyle. That includes the following types of lubricant:

  • Water Lube: This is 100 percent paraben-free, non-greasy, and fragrance-free. You’ll love how slippery and unique it feels to make sex more comfortable.
  • Organic Lube: An all-natural, aloe-based lubricant that is made with organic quinoa, flax, hemp, green tea extract, and oat to help soften and rejuvenate the skin.
  • Silicone Lube: Hypoallergenic and made of high-grade materials, this is the lube for someone that likes it a little thicker than our Water Lube.

All of our lubricants are safe to use with condoms, work well with sex toys, and clean up very easily. They are long-lasting with just a little bit used to go the distance during all of your sexual activities.

High-quality lube like our selection at Promescent makes all the difference in the world during sexual activity. It’s going to feel exceptional for you both.

If you have never tried using lube during sexual activity before, you both will love how extra slick it is to spice up your bedroom escapades.

That extra lubrication will also help her prevent feeling sore inside her vaginal canal.
Sometimes when women are feeling uncomfortable during sex, they don’t readily speak up about it. They just prefer to suffer in silence.

Being properly lubricated will help her enjoy sex more and ultimately will lead to a better orgasm.

But knowing some tips and techniques to make the process more exciting and engaging for them will help her achieve an orgasm, if it doesn’t come easy for her.

Just be patient with her needs.

Knowledge, along with experimentation, will make the process to orgasm much easier. It’s going to be a fun ride at least.

She’s going to get there where the sexual fireworks happen for her.

The more you know about what she enjoys, the better off the experience will be for both of you.
