Exploring Sexuality

WHAT’S AN ORGASM & HOW DO I KNOW IF I’VE HAD ONE?

So, what is an orgasm and more importantly — what does an orgasm feel like? Sex educator Eva Bloom answers your big questions about the big O.

Orgasms are sometimes a very coveted thing in partnered and solo sex or masturbation. However, it can be very different for different people and is just one part of the pleasurable experiences while exploring your sexuality.

In this video, Eva walks us through different phases of orgasm for both men and women. She explains the feeling of orgasms and also why one should not feel pressured to have one when they have sex with a partner or masturbate.

Wondering, ‘how do I know if I’ve had one?’ This video might help shed clarity on what getting orgasms means and what it can feel like. 

Having orgasms is the result of feeling heightened pleasure and comfort and is achieved when a person is feeling very aroused. Some foreplay or using sex toys can definitely help in calming oneself and for stimulation. There are some condoms that can help, too - Durex® Intense Orgasmic* condoms are perfect for when you want to provide some additional stimulation for her, and Durex® Mutual Climax condoms* are designed with both you and your partner in mind, with Performax™ lubricant on the inside of each condom to help him last longer, the ribs and dots on the outside designed to heighten her pleasure and offer extra stimulation. 

We hope that this video by Eva helped you get your answer to, ‘what orgasms feel like?’ You can also watch a Durex video that talks about female ejaculation, while we are talking about heightened pleasure.
