How Pompoir Makes Penetration Enjoyable

orgasms science Mar 07, 2024

Last week, a user on the r/pompoir subreddit shared that ever since reading
The Gohddess Method book and practicing the exercises, she started enjoying deep penetration much more.

Specifically, she said that she started having cervical orgasms, whereas before, any stimulation of the cervix would feel quite painful. 

Besides being mesmerized by this outcome, she was understandably curious: why would Pompoir help with cervical stimulation?

And this led to a bigger question, one that Pompoir students have been asking themselves ever since noticing the most common result of starting this training:

How is it that Pompoir is making penetration so much more enjoyable?

Today, I’ll attempt to answer this question.

As always, remember that I’m not a medical professional. I’m just a dork who stumbled into this beautiful practice and developed it into a training method, out of sheer obsession.

Still, I’ll make sure to include plenty of sources, so you can read further and make your own conclusions. 

This is simply my hypothesis. My “bro-science” theory. 

Let’s call it “sis-science” for accuracy.


The Battle of the Erogenous Zones

As far as erogenous zones go, we know that we have some fairly obvious,
explosive ones (the clitoris, the nipples), and we know that we have some gentler ones (the neck, the ears, the thighs).

If you go online, you’ll find articles sharing anywhere from three to thirty-one of these pleasurable regions.

But I tend to agree with my favorite OCD princess. Seven sounds about right. 

The most famous of these erogenous zones, highly regarded as the Holy Grail of female pleasure, is our amazing clitoris (also known as “the C-spot”).

In fact, it feels like over the last decade, the wellness and sexual industries raised the clitoral flag and claimed it as the one true way to reach orgasm, as opposed to other regions stimulated by penetration.

It’s not uncommon to find articles titled “The C-Spot is the New G-Spot”, “Are Vaginal Orgasms Even Real?”, or “Most Women Can’t Orgasm From Penetration, So Focus on the Clitoris”.

But, unless you’re new here, you probably know my stance on the Clitoris vs Vagina for Peak Orgasm battle…

Why not both?

I believe the vagina (as in, the inner canal of your reproductive system) has been wronged. We haven’t been taught how to stimulate it properly, and we haven’t been taught how to fully get pleasure from it.

As a result of this, penetration is regarded by many women as a “necessary” part of sex, that they don’t necessarily enjoy, and that they put up with while wishing their partners would just focus on the clit. 

On the other hand, many women report loving sex positions such as Doggy Style and The Anvil. Which is odd, because these are positions where there’s not really that much direct clitoral stimulation at all, and where deep penetration is the true star of the game.

So, what’s going on here?

Is it that some women have erogenous zones inside the vagina and some don’t? Or is it just a matter of discovering these erogenous zones? Are half of the women lying, or are they just lucky?

Let’s go into a sexual investigation, shall we? And let’s see if we can get to the bottom of this.

Or maybe let’s leave the bottom for an entirely different article. 

The Evidence

You might’ve heard of
the G-Spot. An area, presumably within the first two thirds of the vaginal canal located in the anterior wall (the one facing your belly) that’s very sensitive to sexual stimulation and allegedly responsible for vaginal orgasms.

This recent systematic review of 31 studies concluded that while they agreed on the existence of the G spot, the exact location, size, or nature of it is still highly individual. Therefore, this review also concluded that this spot remains unproven.

But according to this study by Jane Fu and colleagues, 54% of women report being able to orgasm from penetration alone (without clitoral stimulation), which means that there’s probably something inside the vagina capable of eliciting climax.

And there’s no question that women experience pleasure from penetration, even if it doesn’t lead to orgasm on its own.

This study shares four techniques that women use to either orgasm through penetration or make penetration more enjoyable:

  • 87.5% of women use Angling, as in, changing the angle of the hips and pelvic during penetration
  • 76% of women use Rocking, as in, using the base of the penis or toy to rub against the clitoris
  • 84% of women use Shallowing, as in, penetrating just the entrance of the vagina
  • 69.7% of women use Pairing, as in, stimulating her clitoris at the same time as the vagina is being penetrated

The evidence seems contradicting. First we’re being told that only 21-30% of women can orgasm from penetration alone.

But then, in some studies, we see the opposite trend. With women who report orgasming frequently and experiencing multiple orgasms during intercourse doing so at a higher rate through vaginal stimulation than with clitoral stimulation.

Figure 10. Osmo Kontula (Researcher Professor, PhD) & Anneli Miettinen (Researcher, MSSc) (2016) Determinants of female sexual orgasms, Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology, 6:1, DOI: 10.3402/snp.v6.31624

And then we have more subtle evidence, like the fact that Doggy Style, a position where clitoral stimulation doesn’t occur naturally, remains the preferred position amongst women?

There seems to be more going on here.

This study surveyed a representative sample of 1,000 Czech women and concluded that vaginal orgasms were correlated with four factors: 

  • vaginal (not clitoral) sex education, as in, learning that the vagina plays an important role in female orgasm
  • focusing mental attention on vaginal sensations that occur during penetration
  • longer duration of intercourse, but not necessarily foreplay
  • preference for a longer penis 

By the way, in this study, researchers asked 1,000 women if they ever had an orgasm from penetration alone, and
only 22% said “Never”.

Now this adds an entirely new dimension to the conversation.

Furthermore, we also know that a strong pelvic floor is associated with improved sexual function (read: arousal, pleasure, and, you guessed it, orgasm).

So it seems like the whole “women just don’t orgasm from penetration” might be a premature statement…

Very interesting...

These findings are getting us closer to a hypothesis that matches what we see within our Pompoir students, who report
enhanced pleasure from penetration and more vaginal orgasms since starting their training. 

But before we get to my sis-science theory, let’s look at the last piece of this sexual puzzle. 

This entire analysis started from a redditor’s question about cervical pleasure as a result from Pompoir training. Does that mean that the cervix is also an erogenous zone?

What is the A–Spot?

The A-Spot, or the anterior fornix erogenous zone (AFE) is an area located deep inside the vagina, between the front wall and the cervix.

Research suggests that stimulation of this area results in fast onset of vaginal lubrication and arousal, which in some cases can lead to orgasm.

Okay – so so far, the evidence seems to suggest that all of these genital regions can lead to orgasm.

But it also seems to suggest that the C-Spot is the most prevalent among women, or at the very least, it’s the easiest one to stimulate for orgasm.

On the other hand, while the G-Spot and the A-Spot can lead to intense orgasms, they might require a bit more finesse. 

And herein lies my hypothesis.

How Pompoir Makes Penetration Extremely Enjoyable

By far, the biggest benefit women report when enrolling in The Ohlympus Program or reading The Gohddess Method book is a greater enjoyment of penetration.

And this seems to agree with some of the conclusions from the aforementioned studies, which state that:

  1. penetration is more pleasurable and leads to orgasm when women angle their pelvises in a specific way
  2. penetration is more pleasurable and leads to orgasm amongst women who have learned that vaginal orgasms are possible
  3. penetration is more pleasurable and leads to orgasm when the woman focuses on her vaginal sensations
  4. penetration is more pleasurable and leads to orgasm amongst women with stronger pelvic floor muscles
  5. penetration is more pleasurable and leads to orgasm when intercorse lasts longer
  6. penetration is more pleasurable and leads to orgasm when the A-Spot is stimulated for arousal

With this in mind, here are the three reasons why I personally believe Pompoir makes penetration much more enjoyable for women, and helps them reach the elusive but highly pleasurable vaginal orgasm.


REASON #1: Pompoir Allows for Easy Penetration through Arousal & Flexibility

One big reason why some women might not enjoy penetration, which is not often mentioned in these studies, is lack of arousal.

Perhaps this is why the Czech study found that women who experience vaginal orgasms are having longer sex sessions than those who don’t – they probably have more time to get sufficiently aroused.

Arousal is, unsurprisingly, very important for orgasm. You can’t really enjoy yourself if you’re not in the mood. Pretty straightforward, right?

And while, as we’ve seen, the vagina does have two wonderful pleasure spots (the A Spot and the G Spot), if the woman is not sufficiently horny, stimulating them out of the blue might not do much for her.

This is why clitoral stimulation is such a big part of foreplay. It’s a straightforward way to stimulate a pleasure spot while preventing any major form of discomfort (whereas, penetration of a dry vagina is very uncomfortable).

However, when a woman starts training Pompoir, one of the first things she’ll notice is that she’ll start getting aroused faster.

This is because, by consistently training her pelvic floor muscles, she’s becoming more efficient at pumping blood through her genital region. 

Additionally, because Pompoir focuses so much on mind-muscle connection, she will also be prompted to think about sex more often, creating that loop of arousal in her brain every time she activates her pelvic floor. 

In fact, it’s very common for students of Pompoir to want to masturbate after they finish a training practice, because they’re so turned on.

Now, how does this help penetration? Simple.

By speeding up the arousal cycle, the woman gets lubricated faster during sex, which makes penetration more enjoyable and prevents discomfort.

Besides lubrication of the vagina, another process that occurs during arousal is vaginal tenting, which is the shift of the uterus to allow for an extra space for the penis to fit inside the woman (thus also preventing any discomfort!).

Finally, Pompoir also aids in ease of penetration by training the pelvic floor muscles to be flexible. Many Kegel programs focus on strength of the vaginal muscles, but that’s only one piece of the puzzle. 

When muscles are overly trained or too tight, they can become hypertonic. This means that they’re constantly contracted and unable to relax. And this, as you can imagine, can make penetration very uncomfortable and even painful.

This is why in Pompoir we place a lot of importance in working through the full Range of Motion of the vaginal muscles, relaxing the pelvic floor, connecting with the rest of the core, and stretching.

We want our vaginas to be strong, yes. But also, we want them to be flexible.


REASON #2: Pompoir Helps You Focus on Your Vaginal Sensations

Going back to the Czech study, we learned that women who experience vaginal orgasms have a positive mindset surrounding pleasure and the vagina, and are focused on their vaginal sensations during penetration.

In this sense, Pompoir is undoubtedly helpful.

First, because it is solely focused on the muscles surrounding the vaginal canal, and its main goal is developing greater awareness of them so that women can experience a heightened sensation.

We only train the vagina during Pompoir, not the vulva (where the clitoris is at). So we’re definitely big believers that the vagina can (and should!) experience a lot of pleasure.

And second, because when you’re training the different vaginal regions (the vertical levels, the lateral walls, the anterior and posterior halves) you’re automatically focused on how each of these vaginal regions feel. 

The goal here is to develop a greater sensation of each of these areas. So you’ll be focused on how your vagina feels, by default. 


REASON #3: Pompoir Strengthens Your Pelvic Floor 

This is also pretty straightforward. 

Sometimes people ask us whether Pompoir is anything like Kegels. 

The answer is yes, and no. Kegels are a part of Pompoir. 

Specifically, Kegels are the very first step of Pompoir, where we build a foundation of strength in our pelvic floor muscles through contractions, in order to then be able to perform more complex moves such as squeezes, whips, locks, pulses, and twists.

But this means that all the studies conducted on Kegel training can also apply to Pompoir.

And as we’ve seen, a strong pelvic floor (which is trained through Kegel exercises or basic Pompoir) is a big factor in making penetration more pleasurable. 


Bonus REASON #4: Pompoir Helps You “Build Your Own Orgasm”

So there you have it. Those are the three main reasons why I believe Pompoir helps women enhance the pleasure they get from penetration and increase the likelyhood of experiencing a vaginal orgasm.

And if you don’t believe me, feel free to pop by the r/pompoir community on Reddit or read some of the reviews from The Gohddess Method.

Now, these three reasons I mentioned are based on the research we went through today. 

But there’s a fourth reason, that has not been studied in the slightest, which I believe is the key reason why Pompoir training has improved the sex lives of so many women around the world.

Take this with a giant, elephant-sized grain of salt, but here it goes:

Pompoir helps you build your own orgasms.

Here’s what I mean: when you study Pompoir, you learn dozens of different moves

Squeezing. Locking. Milking. Pulsing. Sucking. Twisting. Rocking. Tilting. Wringing.

The idea is that then you try out these different moves in bed, with varying levels of speed and intensity, and in varying sex positions, so you can figure out which ones are your favorite.

This way, you create your own choreography of pleasure. Or rather, several of them.

Maybe you love how it feels to squeeze at the entrance of the vagina when you’re on all fours. Maybe you like tilting your man left and right inside of you as you’re about to reach orgasm. Maybe you love locking him tight in place and bringing him to the edge until he can’t take it anymore.

Whatever vaginal regions you like to stimulate, you can once you train Pompoir. Because you will gain a profound (pun intended) awareness of each of these unique areas inside of you, and you’ll master several tricks to stimulate them.

And this, this is how you Build Your Own Orgasm with Pompoir.

Pretty rad, right?
