How to have a blended orgasm, both alone and with a partner
Ah, the mythical female orgasm.
Much has been written and said about this sometimes rare creature and we reckon we've come across what could be the hardest one to achieve - the blended orgasm.
The blended orgasm is, as its name suggests, a combination of two things - a clitoral orgasm and a vaginal orgasm, i.e. coming from stimulation inside and outside the vagina at the same time.
Lots of women struggle to come from stimulation in just one area, not to mind two, but if you can manage it a blended orgasm sounds very much worth a bit of extra effort.
It can last anywhere from between one and 15 minutes, according to The Huffington Post.
The best position to achieve it with is missionary as it allows for deep vaginal penetration as well as some clitoral action, sex therapist Jane Greer told the site.
Cowgirl is another way to go, she adds, especially if you want to be in control of making yourself come on the double.
The blended orgasm is not by any means something you need someone else to sort you out with, though.
Doing two things at once can be tricky so using a toy could be beneficial if you're going solo.
Go for something that'll stimulate both your clit and your vaginal canal like a rabbit-style vibrator and mess around until you find the position that suits best.
Can't come from vaginal penetration? It's a common complaint - but it's still possible to have a blended orgasm even if you can't.
As Refinery 29 points out, some people can come from non-genital stimulation.
The blended orgasm occurs when a woman orgasms from stimulation in two different areas so you could have a go at some nipple play or anal sex while also having your clit stimulated to try and get there.
