    Orgasm happens when you generate a sufficient level of sexual tension in your body to cross a threshold, when all that tension releases explosively. For those familiar with the sensations of clitoral orgasm, you might recognize these signs: erratic heart rate and breathing, muscle spasms, waves of pleasure, and the characteristic pulsing of the pubococcygeal muscle at

    the mouth of the vagina. For women, the whole thing takes something like 10 seconds.

     

    Orgasms generated by G-spot stimulation tend to feel different from clitoral orgasms. In general, women say that they don’t experience the same rhythmic pulses that accompany the standard clitoral orgasm. Orgasm from G-spot stimulation is a bigger, whole-body kind of experience, where the sensation fills you up until you don’t believe you could possibly feel more, and then you do and it fills up your entire body again. You might have a harder time identifying the beginning and end of a G-spot orgasm because often there is a long, slow approach, and a long, slow orgasm, with a long, slow denouement.
