Battle of the orgasms: Prostate vs. Cervical

Okay, before we start – we’re going to make you do a small exercise. Think about your first orgasm. How did that feel? Like a world of pleasure? Or slightly awkward? For me, it was like opening a portal to a world of wonder, as though you had found your own refresh button or as though the world seemed like a better place, even if only for a few seconds. Orgasms are like a welcome gift of puberty that you may cherish for a lifetime. However, not many people know the extent of what counts as an orgasm. In fact, research suggests that 10% – 15% of women have never experienced an orgasm in their lifetime.

We’re not trying to tell you that you’re missing out. But, yes we essentially are, through this blog. We hope to tell you things about orgasms that will woo your mind! Fortunately or unfortunately, orgasms aren’t a code that can be cracked in a second. It’s a journey that you have to embark on with your own body. But, we are here to be your GPS on the route to mind-blowing orgasms!

While there is research that states that there are as many as twelve types of orgasms that can be experienced by vulva owners, the list of orgasms for penis owners goes up to seven! Don’t be surprised. If this statement made you bounce in your seat and ponder about what more is out there for you, you should keep reading!

As we just mentioned, the list of the types of orgasms discovered in the human body is fairly long. While we wish to make you a  go-to guide for all of these, in this blog, you will find out everything you need to know about two kinds of orgasms for penis owners.

Prostate Orgasms: Male G-Spot

Prostate orgasms, specific to penis owners, can be stimulated by stimulating the prostate gland. While most people would be surprised to know that there is more to male anatomy than ejaculatory orgasms, prostate orgasms are much more powerful and well worth the effort of exploration. Located internally, between the base of the penis and the rectum, a person can find the prostate gland by inserting a clean, lubricated finger into the anus, with the finger pointing toward the naval. Remember, lube makes everything better and unlike the vagina, the anus is not self-lubricating. We don’t want to be in any painful situations.

Since the prostate is highly sensitive to pressure, you can apply pressure to the perineum, which is the area between the scrotum and the anus, to stimulate the prostate. Now here’s where the terminologies kick in!

Originally, people thought that the prostate was the gland that carried semen through the prostatic urethra triggering the ejaculatory reflex, the point of orgasm. However, dry orgasms, wherein the body does not produce any semen, are also possible. This means that the prostate carrying semen through the penis does not trigger an orgasm.

Well, there are two different ways in which the prostate may provide pleasure. The first theory involves a collection of nerves attached to the prostate. These nerves called the prostatic plexus, come from the lower part of the pelvic plexus near the spine. The prostate, penis, and urethra are all attached to these nerves. An orgasm might activate these nerves, resulting in sexual pleasure in that area.

The second theory involves the brain. When paying more attention to the prostate, a person can gain more pleasure from it over time. The brain can make a person become more aroused and find more pleasure in prostate stimulation if they focus on and practice stimulating the prostate. According to the review, this process may cause the brain to expect more pleasure each time the prostate receives stimulation. This process makes it more likely that a person will find prostate stimulation pleasurable.

While this explanation delves into the science of penis-owning bodies, it is still fascinating to know about this hidden orgasm spot, let alone experience it!

Let’s Dig in Deeper: Cervical Orgasms

While clitoral orgasms are the most common and “go-to” orgasms for females and vulva owners, there is yet another magical spot to explore. While the clitoris, vagina, and labia steal all the attention, the cervix remains hidden behind the vaginal canal. Thus, cervical orgasms remain unexplored by many women and are often conceived with fear and doubt. However, if attended well, it’ll get you there. Real quick.

A cervical orgasm is a type of orgasm induced by stimulating or pressing against the cervix, which is the narrow canal connecting the vagina and the uterus. Since the cervix is farther inside, it requires deeper penetration. This form of stimulation is known as cervical penetration, although this term is misleading, as the cervix is not actually penetrated. However, it is the feeling of “fullness” caused by often involving filling the entire vaginal canal combined with the stimulation of deep vaginal nerve endings that can produce an orgasm for some people. The nerve endings stimulated by cervical stimulation, which are the nerves in the deep pelvic region, are different from those stimulated by clitoral stimulation, which seems to send sensory signals to the brain via the spine.

This is also subjective to the owner’s phase of their menstrual cycle. The tiny opening that runs through the center and connects the vagina to the uterus, also known as the external OS, is open only during childbirth and is too small to be penetrated. However, the stimulation that occurs when a penis or other object rubs or pushes against the cervix is what causes a pleasurable sensation for some people. During sexual arousal, the vagina will elongate, which pulls the cervix up and out of the way. As a result, cervical stimulation cannot usually be achieved with just the fingers and requires penetration by the penis or a sex toy.

While cervical orgasms feel more powerful and consuming, spreading deeper through the body, they can seem intimidating at first.  They are reported as feeling like a vibration or tingle which emanates through the entire body, providing an intense climax that lasts a lot longer than G-spot or clitoral orgasms.

The A-spot, also known as the anterior fornix, is the pocket of tissue located where the cervix protrudes from the vaginal wall, forming a soft “corner” between the vaginal wall and the side of the cervix. Some people find the anterior fornix sensitive, and a slim toy that can reach up alongside the cervix can help you explore it.

While some people have indicated a thumbs down to cervical orgasms because of experiences of discomfort and pain, some studies show that cervical stimulation contributed to the orgasms of 46% of women out of 132. Well, while most women require some amount of clitoral stimulation to hit orgasm, you always have to try out what works best for you and what you’d rather stay away from.
