In the process of achieving female orgasm, there are countless ways to improve sexual pleasure. Sexual lubricants and the introduction of sex toys to the bedroom are two ways to immediately start exploring new sexual experiences. But, ultimately ladies, your body and mind are your most important sexual assets, moreover there is an excellent tip that you should surely try if you want to improve your sexual pleasure. This tip is to control your breathing, and it’s one of the best ways to have explosive orgasms, scientists say.
Are you breathing the right way?
Experts say you could curb your orgasms without realizing it. To determine if you are doing it, on the brink of orgasm, focus on your breathing. Do you take deep, full breaths? Or are you holding your breath instead? If it is the latter, you could weaken your orgasms.
Holding your breath as you get closer to orgasm is a fairly common instinct. According to sexologist Jessica O’Reilly, it happens for a variety of reasons: nerves, excitement, fear of letting go, an attempt to muffle your sounds so as not to disturb the children, adding that you might even hold it back simply because the heavy breathing that precedes and accompanies orgasm is not natural. But since breathing is a subconscious reflex, the way you modify it while playing sports can also reflect this. It can also happen that you are so focused on the task that you forget to breathe.
Holding your breath can harm your orgasm
No matter what you do it, holding your breath during sex can limit the amount of oxygen that circulates in your body, which can be counterproductive overall. Maximizing your breathing helps boost your blood circulation, which is essential to the sexual response cycle. Blood flow to the genital area is a natural part of the orgasm building process. Depending on why you are holding your breath, it could also make it difficult to disconnect from reality during orgasm. According to O’Reilly, training to breathe deeply and naturally can improve your sexual experience, as deep, slow breaths make orgasmic contractions more intense and more numerous.
At the same time, you are not going to focus much on your breathing until you disrupt your orgasm. According to sex therapist Ian Kerner, thinking too much about how you have an orgasm can make it hard to reach it. Kerner recognizes that breathing differently can help stimulate some people’s sexual experiences; the trick is to focus before orgasm, not during.
An easy way to get used to it is to try deep breathing during masturbation. This way you can get used to what you do so that it becomes a habit during intercourse. According to O’Reilly, you have to try to breathe a little longer to see how it changes the sensations. There is no time to target, it is just a matter of breathing deeply through your diaphragm instead of taking short breaths and exhalations through your chest. While it is common to try this by breathing through your nose and mouth, a different variation may be better. Some patients tell O’Reilly that when they breathe, they imagine the emission of oxygen through their pelvic regions, which can intensify the experience.
If after all that, you find a way to increase your orgasm, that’s perfect! And if you think you’d rather hold your breath, or find some other way between the two ends, it’s also more than perfect. Besides, according to O’Reilly, each of our experiences is unique. Some people find that holding their breath for a short period of time triggers orgasm, so experiment with different types of breathing to see what works best for you.
