What is a Cervical Orgasm? Tips to Achieve It

What is the cervix?

The cervix is the lower part of the uterus. It has the shape of a narrow cylinder that measures about 2 cm to 3 cm and connects the body of the uterus with the vagina.

It has a significant role during labor due to its ability to dilate and facilitate the newborn’s passage through the birth canal. The majority of women are ignorant about the fact that aside from that role, the cervix is also an erogenous zone due to its dense innervation with different types of nerve fibers and its stimulation can contribute to sexual pleasure.

What is an orgasm?

Alfred Charles Kinsey, a major figure in American sexology, defined orgasm in “The Kinsey Reports” as: “The expulsive discharge of neuromuscular tensions at the peak of sexual response.” An orgasm is a subjective experience described as a peak sensation of intense pleasure and excitement felt as a result of the cumulation of sexual arousal and erotic stimulations.

What is cervical orgasm?

A cervical orgasm is the result of cervical stimulation through the use of fingers, sex toys or penis contact with the cervix during sexual penetration.

Cervical orgasms are less common than clitorial and vaginal orgasms, yet they may result in special sensations and enhance one’s general sexual well-being. Additionally, it is important to note that this experience differs in intensity and duration from one individual to another.

On the one hand, some women believe that cervical stimulation enhances their likelihood of having an orgasm and may also intensify it. Other women, on the other hand, claim otherwise; regardless, it is necessary to note that this experience may not be perfect for everyone, and that every woman’s body is different. Although, the association of cervical orgasm with sexual satisfaction is not always accurate as not all women can have a cervical orgasm. Some of them describe it as a disturbing, unpleasant or even painful experience.

How to achieve a cervical orgasm?

Cervical orgasm can be attained by a variety of methods. There is no “correct” way to experience this kind of sexual pleasure. Some people get it by penetrating the cervix with a penis or a strap-on, others opt for manual stimulation, or the use of different kinds of sex toys.

These are some tips that may guide you through this delightful experience:

  • Be gentle and patient: The cervix can be a delicate area that necessitates a gentle touch, thus cervical orgasms should be handled carefully and patiently. If done too aggressively, the sensation can be uncomfortable or even painful, so it’s crucial to start out slowly and gradually build pressure and intensity based on personal comfort levels.
  • Consider the position and be relaxed: Finding a comfortable position that enables for deeper penetration is one of the keys to a delightful and pleasurable experience as the cervix is placed in a deep area compared to the other erogenous zones like the clitoris and the vagina. In addition to that, appropriate lubrication and relaxation are necessary to ease the process.
  • Communication: Cervical orgasms may not be appropriate for everyone, especially those with cervix-related medical issues or those with dyspareunia (women who suffer from recurring pain during sexual intercourse). Therefore, good communication with one’s partner/partners is critical to be able to explore together and figure out what’s pleasurable for everyone.
  • No pressure: As mentioned above, not everyone can reach a cervical orgasm, and there is no need for anyone to feel pressure or shame if they are unable to do so.

What does a cervical orgasm feel like?

Women who have had cervical orgasm described it as a feeling of pressure against the cervix, followed by a contraction of several muscles in the pelvis and abdomen and a sense of tension release and relaxation. The intensity of this sensation may vary from one woman to another as it is related to several factors including but not limited to the sexual arousal preceding the orgasm, the subject’s level of comfort , medications used, and so on.

How does cervical orgasm occur:

John William Money, a psychologist, sexologist and author, described briefly the generation of the orgasm: “The zenith of sexuoerotic experience that men and women characterize subjectively as voluptuous rapture or ecstasy. It occurs simultaneously in the brain/mind and the pelvic genitalia. Irrespective of its locus of onset, the occurrence of orgasm is contingent upon reciprocal intercommunication between neural networks in the brain, above, and the pelvic genitalia, below, and it does not survive their disconnection by the severance of the spinal cord. However, it is able to survive even extensive trauma at either end.”

The cervix has a double innervation: sympathetic (represented by the hypogastric nerve) and parasympathetic (represented by the pelvic and vagus nerves). The hypogastric and pelvic nerve routes to the cervix communicate with the thoraco-lumbar spinal cord’s sensory and autonomic sections, which in turn communicate with integrative centers in the brainstem and hypothalamus. The vagus nerves, on the other hand, bypass the spinal cord and flow directly to the brain.

Cervical stimulation produces nerve signals that travel via the trajectories outlined above for each neuron to convey the final message to the sensory cortex of the brain where the orgasm is generated and modulated. Actually, scientists studied the brain’s activity during orgasms with brain functional MRI which showed that all the major regions of the brain became activated as a result of sexual arousal. Following cervical stimulation, the brain (after receiving nerve flow) sends commands to various parts of the body, resulting in various signs felt during the cervical orgasm: muscle contractions, increased heart rate, blood pressure, pupil dilation, sweating and rise in hormone release, and finally an increase in arousal and pleasurable sensations.

Cervical orgasm compared to other types of orgasms?

Although the nerves stimulated are not exactly the same, stimulation of the cervical area was proved to activate the same cerebral region (para-central lobule of the sensory cortex) as the clitorial and vaginal stimulations.

Cervical orgasms are typically reported as being more intense and deeper than other orgasms kinds. They are frequently described as an all-encompassing, full-body sensation.

Is it possible for Transsexual females or people who had a male-to-female gender affirmation surgery to experience cervical orgasm?

Male-to-female gender affirmation surgery (GAS) is a medical intervention that allows transsexual women to have all obviously distinguishing aspects of male genitalia removed. The goal is to create a peri-neogenital complex that is as feminine as feasible in appearance and function. The usual procedure for transwomen is “penile inversion vaginoplasty” which converts the main components of the penis into female dimensions. Despite the removal of many of its nerve endings after this treatment, the orgasmic ability remains intact.
The newly created vagina has no cervix which explains why transsexual women cannot experience cervical orgasm even after undergoing a GAS. However, other types of orgasms can still be experienced like clitoral and vaginal orgasms as both these parts of the genital system are maintained and well-innervated after surgery.

Does hysterectomy affect cervical orgasms?

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure used to treat a variety of gynecological conditions such as dysfunctional uterine hemorrhage, tumors, endometriosis, and other diseases.

To address the question above, we must first distinguish between two types of hysterectomy: subtotal hysterectomy, which involves the ablation of the uterus, and total hysterectomy, which includes the removal of the cervix in addition to the ablation of the uterus.

The capacity of a woman to have an orgasm may be impaired by this procedure depending on which areas of her genital system are concerned by the ablation.

The cervix and its innervation are left intact during a subtotal hysterectomy, preserving cervical orgasm. In contrast, the cervix is removed in the total hysterectomy, hence individuals who undergo this type of intervention can no longer experience cervical orgasms.
