If two is truly better than one, a blended orgasm is all the confirmation you need.
Much like self-love techniques—edging, guided masturbation and so on—there is no one way to achieve the big O. And, in fact, there's more than one type of orgasm. And yes, you can experience them simultaneously. Wowza!
It's time to incorporate a "the more the merrier" mindset into your solo sex routine, starting with the blended orgasm.
"While everyone experiences pleasure uniquely, the verdict is an orgasmic full-body experience you won’t forget anytime soon," Natasha Marie, head of content and sexual wellness expert at MysteryVibe (opens in new tab), says of the phenomenon.

What is a blended orgasm?
A blended orgasm is when multiple areas of your body are being touched and aroused simultaneously, according to Annabelle Knight, sex and relationship expert at Lovehoney (opens in new tab). This typically means experiencing both clitoral and a G-spot orgasm at the same time.
But some sexperts think the definition goes a step further.
"As we continue the research, we've been shown that it could possibly be an internal clitoral orgasm or an orgasm that stimulates the CUV (clitoral-urethral-vaginal) complex," says Marla Renee Stewart, MA, and sexpert for Lovers (opens in new tab).
Stewart continues: "You achieve this orgasm by stimulating externally (head and shaft of the clitoris) and internally (what we typically call the G-spot; the bulbous tissue on the inside of the vagina where the clitoral legs spread). Externally, you can do this with vibrators, and internally, you can do this with G-spot stimulators."
How to achieve a blended orgasm
The only way to have one is to engage in some sexy time, either fast-paced or slow, teasing fun. It's all up to you. (Psst: this orgasm hack might help things along.)
"The best way to learn your body is to explore. Masturbate, masturbate, masturbate," Marie says. "Explore your body and experiment with different areas, angles, speeds and rhythms."
(It is the key to women's most intense orgasms, after all.)
You'll also want to check out different types of vibrators and sex toys that target both the clitoris and the G-spot.
"Finding the right combination of vibrational patterns is going to be key—along with some erotic breathwork—can help you to feel a blended orgasm and even a full-body orgasm," Stewart insists.
Benefits of a blended orgasm
Well, the obvious—blended orgasms pack on the pleasure. Plus, they're a good way to stimulate unexpected parts of your body.
"Many people cannot climax from penetration alone, so by focusing on multiple pleasure points, your body receives a variety of sensations that can elevate the experience as a whole and help reach orgasm," Marie says. "A blended orgasm also offers a different sensation."
Expect to get greedy after your first experience.
"Once you have had one, you will want more! What is not to like about having two simultaneous orgasms that tend to result in a more intense, full-body response?" Knight questions.
Looks like we're all rooting for a double whammy!
