Get acquainted with the 5 pleasure zones of the vaginal canal.
1. Vaginal entry
Dr. Oneal eloquently calls this “using the front door.” Play around with entering and exiting the first inch or so inside the vaginal canal with fingers or toys.
The all-mighty G-spot is located two-to-three inches deep on the front wall of the vagina, near 12 o’clock, if you imagine the surface being a clock's face. “Once you’ve found it, you’ll never debate it again,” she says.
3. Deep spot upper
According to Dr. Oneal, the DSU (for short) is a favorite for its anecdotal powers in the realm of female ejaculation. How do you get there? Penetrate deeply, until you "bottom out" at the cervical cap, then back out about a half-inch. She’s found that “stimulating the upper wall is generally met with a lot of smiling by the receiver of the stimulation.”
The One Type of Orgasm That's Easiest for Vulva-Owners to Reach—and Fast
Dr. Oneal says cervical stimulation isn't everyone's favorite pleasure zone, but that for some, it's unquestionably the best. To access it, penetrate deep into the vaginal canal until you can’t go any farther. At that point, you'll know you’ve found the cervix.
5. Deep spot lower
The DSL (not to be confused any, ahem, other meanings of DSL you may be aware of) can be reached by penetrating to the cervix then pulling back by about a half-inch. This spot can be found vaginally or anally.
And, as a bonus, Dr. Oneal says that in opening up the list to include the vulva, the clitoris can certainly be considered as a sixth hot spot. It boasts thousands of nerve endings for the sole purpose of sexual arousal and pleasure, so she recommends playing here for even more pleasure.
While all of Dr. Oneal's intel is certainly experiment-worthy, she's quick to note that all of it is highly personalized. Furthermore, there’s no single way to stimulate each pleasure zone, so she recommends exploring until you find what you like. Some ideas to toy with? Pressure, speed, the direction of stimulation (side-to-side, circular, clockwise, counterclockwise), temperature, etc. In other words? Experiment, experiment, experiment. So, with that, go play with each pleasure zone to find what feels best—and, really, the possibilities are endless.
You heard it here first: Anal pleasure could help close the orgasm gap. And to that point, a sexpert shares whether anilingus is safe and sanitary in the first place.
