Orgasms come in all shapes and sizes. From mind-blowing orgasms, that have your toes curling to little blips on the radar that still feel fantastic in their own right, to orgasms that fall somewhere in the middle, orgasms vary in types and intensity. Which is a good thing. If all orgasms were created equal, we just might get bored. Emphasis on the word "might."
Although, ultimately, the end-goal of sex shouldn't be an orgasm, as it's about the journey more than anything, when we do achieve an orgasm, it's a head-to-toe experience, starting in our brain. Even those little blips.
"Orgasm happens in the brain, not the body part whose stimulation results in the response," Good Vibrations staff sexologist Carol Queen tells Bustle. Because of this there can be a lot of reasons why orgasms vary so much. All you need is a stressful day to throw everything for a loop and your orgasm might not be up to par, in your humble opinion. But while that's true, there's also no denying that position, also, plays a role in just how great an orgasm can be.
According to a survey of 994 people, ages 18 to 74, by Superdrug Online Doctor, both men and women had a preference of what positions delivered the "best" orgasms. Of those who were surveyed, 49 percent were women, 51 percent were men, and less than one percent didn't identify as male or female. While majority of the survey participants identified as straight, keep in mind that these positions work with two women as well.
Here are the top four positions that, according to the surveyed women, lead to the best orgasms.
