While the G-spot and clitoral orgasms get all the attention, the cervix or C-spot can also be highly sensitive and integral to the female pleasure anatomy. Stimulating your cervix with deep penetration can result in the most delicious, deep, full-body orgasm.
WHAT ARE CERVICAL ORGASMS? ARE THEY REAL?
A cervical orgasm is also known as a full-body orgasm because it can feel like a deep, delicious release radiating from deep within the belly and engulfing your entire body. It is literally the deepest orgasm you can experience because the cervix is located deep inside the vagina, and it can also stir the most profound emotions.
Many describe cervical orgasms as deep, powerful, contracting orgasms that can be felt throughout the entire body; that is why it is often likened to a full-body orgasm.
The cervix is innervated by different nerves than the clitoris and the G-spot area. While the clitoris is innervated only by the pudendal nerves, the cervix connects to the hypogastric and vagus nerves in addition to the pelvic nerves that also innervate the G-spot area. So the orgasmic sensations feel very different from clitoral and vaginal stimulation.
Also scientific research tells us that cervical orgasms are real. They were scientifically proven in a 2004 study in which women with complete spinal cord injuries were stimulated with a device that put pressure against the cervix while simultaneously undergoing MRI. These women unable to orgasm clitorally due to the damaged nerves caused by their spinal injuries could still orgasm via cervical stimulation (1).
Pleasuring the cervix can also be a profoundly emotional experience, and many describe the orgasmic experience as an overwhelming feeling of love and oneness with self and the world.
In Tantra, this is the pole or the center of the feminine energies in a woman's body. This center relates to her feminine core, sense of self, creativity, and heart.
WHAT IS THE CERVIX?
Cervix is a cylinder-shaped neck of tissue that connects the vagina and uterus. It sits back deep inside your vagina and acts as an entrance to the womb, the uterus. It is where your vaginal canal ends.
It is important to know that your cervix can't actually be penetrated. The opening of the cervix is too narrow for a penis or dildo to enter. The only time the cervical opening expands wide enough for anything other than sperm to pass through is during childbirth.
Sometimes, this spot is associated with pain during penetration, but it can be a source of immense pleasure when stimulated in the right way when you are sufficiently aroused and relaxed. That being said, all bodies are different, and we all are varied in our pleasure hotspots. Not everyone is going to like the same thing, and not everyone enjoys having their cervix touched.
HOW TO STIMULATE THE CERVIX?
Now, what is the best way to stimulate the cervix?
Cervical stimulation generally requires deep, deep penetration. During arousal, the vagina will elongate, which pulls the cervix up and out of the way. As a result, cervical stimulation cannot usually be achieved with just the fingers. Fingers are not long enough to each this deep, and you may need a longer toy.
Before you can enjoy stimulating your cervix, learn where your cervix is, how to reach it, and what it feels like when it's being touched.
While it is not easy to reach it with your fingers, it will be easier at some phases during your cycle. The cervix moves up and down.
During menstrual bleeding, the cervix is normally low and hard and slightly open, allowing the blood to flow out. Right after your period stops, the cervix remains low and hard, and the opening to the uterus remains closed.
As you approach ovulation, the cervix rises up to the top of the vagina and becomes softer and moister.
Sometimes the cervix seems to disappear, as it becomes so soft that it blends in with the vaginal walls and rises so high that the finger cannot touch it.
The best way to explore it with your fingers is while squatting down.
THE BEST TOYS FOR CERVICAL STIMULATION
Since the cervix sits back at the vagina, overly curved toys are not ideal either. Onna Allure deep penetration dildo shape does not curve so much and can easily reach your cervix. Also, if you have the Onna Pearl, cervical stimulation is possible too; we recommend using the thinner end and holding it by the bulby end for anyone wishing to awaken their cervix.
We specifically designed our Awaken for awakening the sensations in the cervix through slow and mindful massage. It is our longest toy intended to comfortably reach as far as the cervix to enable gentle stimulation, tension release, and sensation easily.
The first and the most important step is to be super aroused before attempting to touch your cervix. For most, the cervix is an unexplored area, and it might feel strangely uncomfortable or numb.
You might not feel anything initially, and it might take 10-20 minutes or more before you start feeling anything. Which is entirely normal, be patient. After some time, you might start getting a weird indescribable feeling that it's not a pleasure yet, but it's a good sign that your cervix is "waking up" to sensation. It can feel like pressure building or tingling.
As you slowly train yourself to release any tension in your cervix, pleasurable sensations will follow. Cervical orgasms require prolonged relaxation, so do take your time and allow yourself enough time to get fully aroused. You can do so by stimulating and activating other areas of your vagina, the clitoral legs, the G-area and A-spot.
The more relaxed your mind and your pelvic floor, the more open to pleasure your cervix will be. Once you are fully aroused, slowly and GENTLY massage your cervix with the tip of your toy, starting with circles or back and forth motion against the cervix. You can also press your toy very gently against your cervix and hold it there with steady pressure. As your arousal builds up, you can use long, deep breaths to simultaneously expand your sexual energy and relax into the experience of being deeply penetrated.
What works well for a lot of our customers is inserting the Onna Allure so it rests against the cervix and then gently tapping against the base of the toy with fingers.
Forget about pounding the cervix. The cervix likes slooow and rhythmic touch, which means you need to slow down your average penetration speed if you wish to stimulate your cervix during lovemaking with your partner.
We would recommend practicing awakening your cervix with a toy first before attempting to do so with a partner. Or have your partner use a toy on you. The cervix sits deep inside the vaginal canal, and a partner's penis may not be long enough to reach it.
Please, exercise extra caution if you have an IUD.
Tip: The cervix is innervated by vagus nerves, so there is a direct connection between your throat and your cervix via the vagus nerve. Activating your throat by making sounds will help awaken your cervix. Allow yourself to open your throat and make sounds of pleasure.
Reminder: Cervical stimulation/orgasms are not for everyone. Please, do not push through any pain you might feel in your cervix. When you feel pain in your cervix when self-pleasuring, please back off and focus on other parts of your yoni. If your pain persists, do see your healthcare provider. Many health conditions can result in dyspareunia (painful intercourse).
