Sex should be fun. Physically, it's one of the best ways to be close and intimate with another person or even yourself. And while it isn't all about finishing, that is a pretty awesome part of it. An orgasm is an orgasm at the end of the day, right? One company that has been helping women get intimate (and orgasm while doing it) for decades is Ann Summers. Working with sex and relationship therapist Jodie Slee, they've identified eight different ways that women can orgasm and how to get there.

Not only did this totally blow away my perception that there was one type of orgasm and a limited number of ways to achieve it, it's also super exciting. Female pleasure is something that can be complicated and for a very long time has been as embarrassing, shameful and taboo. Luckily that's starting to change, and Ann Summers is doing its bit to help.

In a statement sent to Bustle, head sex toy buyer at the company, Sarah Wright, said, “it’s always important to remember that pleasure and happiness are the goals here, rather than trying to ‘tick off’ every type of orgasm. While pleasure should always be the top priority, experimentation might mean you find a new favourite way to climax.” Sounds good to me.
