Pleasure is important. That’s why we’ve partnered with Wisp to bring you these five hot tips for better orgasms. From focusing on communication, to the hottest products designed to get you off, they’ve got you covered. Read on to find out more…

Have you ever struggled to reach climax? Research shows that as many as 80% of women have faked it at some point, whether it’s to avoid hurting a partner’s feelings or in an attempt to hurry things along. However, if you’re someone who consistently struggles with sexual dissatisfaction, it can feel frustrating and isolating. Whether you’re just looking to step up your intimacy game, or looking to finally achieve long-awaited satisfaction, there are steps you can take to get you there.

Is there a Viagra for women?

That little blue pill seems to be everywhere, and it seems like a simple solution—if only it were that easy for everyone! Well, it may be. “Scream creams” exist, like Wisp’s OMG! Cream. These creams use the same active ingredient as Viagra to increase blood flow to the genitals and increase sensitivity. 

This active ingredient is called sildenafil, and while men may ingest it in the form of a pill for the desired effects, people with vaginas can apply it topically to the clitoris and labia to open the blood vessels in the area. The vaginal tissue becomes much more sensitive, which makes it easier to reach orgasm.

Sildenafil is a prescription ingredient, so you’ll need to connect with a doctor to try it out. Luckily, Wisp makes ordering easy! OMG! Cream can be delivered FREE straight to your door, without any awkward trips to the doctor’s office, or wasting time in a waiting room.

How to have more intense orgasms

OMG! Cream is a great place to start on your journey toward sexual bliss, but there’s more you can do to ensure a great time in the bedroom (for everyone involved!). Read on for our top five orgasm tips.

1. Communicate

Talking about sex is hard for a lot of people, but it’s super important for you to be able to voice your sexual needs so you can get them met! Unlike the movies, where no one ever seems to need to speak during sex, a little bit of instruction can help both you and your partner feel more confident. 

You can even spice things up with a little dirty talk to help things flow naturally! Saying, “I love it when you _____,” or, “Let me show you how I like it,” can help build trust without killing the mood.

2. Reduce sources of anxiety

Many of us struggle to calm our minds during sex, and that little anxious voice can be a big distraction. Do whatever you need to do to create a space you can feel grounded in. Tidy up, light a candle, put on some music, or meditate. 

If you’re prone to common infections like bacterial vaginosis or UTIs after sex, take prevention steps so you can feel confident during the act. D-Mannose helps flush UTI-causing bacteria from your system before it has a chance to take hold, and Boric Acid helps keep your vaginal pH balanced after sexual activity.

3. Lube, lube, and more lube!

We believe you can never have too much! Adding lube during sex helps everyone, regardless of the type of sex you’re having. This simple solution adds moisture and lubrication back to the vagina to decrease friction and make sex less painful and more pleasurable. 

Less pain + more pleasure = that big O. Wisp’s Harmonizing Lube is silicone-based, so it keeps its slip for longer than water-based options (it works in the shower too, if you’re feeling adventurous).

4. Add some romance 

Sex is as much a mental game as a physical one. If you’ve been struggling to reach orgasm, it can be easy to start putting pressure on yourself, which only makes things more difficult… If you want to avoid performance anxiety, then why not try taking a step back?

Switch up the mood with music, a warm bath, and a sexy movie, or asking your partner to fulfill a fantasy or give you a massage can go a long way towards making you feel sexier in your skin.

5. Foreplay

You’ve probably heard it before, but foreplay is key! It helps build anticipation so you’re already revved up when things get steamy. Foreplay doesn’t just start in the bedroom, either—share some sexy text messages throughout the day or surprise your partner with a passionate kiss before they leave for work so they are thinking about you all day. 

You can also try moving away from penetrative sex and avoid making orgasm the goal of the experience. Focus on exploring each other’s bodies, or have an experience that’s all about oral. This can help take some of the pressure off and you may end up reaching the finish line anyway! 

Although not many people consider pleasure as a marker of health, it can play a big role in the big picture. Sexual pleasure not only helps us feel good physically, but it can provide a boost to your mental health as well. If you’re not getting the satisfaction you’re looking for, don’t be afraid to talk to a doctor! Wisp is a great way to connect with a doctor online for any of your sexual and reproductive health needs and get prescription care same-day, or delivered free to your door.
