How Meditation Can Help You Achieve an Orgasm

Reader Alex said the following in response to our post, “How Do You Round the Final Bend When Sex Feels Amazing But You Don’t Orgasm?”

I also have this problem. I believe that it has to do with how well you can “release” your mind. I have a really hard time just mentally letting go, fantasizing, getting caught up in the moment, etc., and rather I’m constantly analyzing, ruminating, thinking thinking thinking.

I believe that this is something that you can get better at with practice, and that practicing meditation would exercise the same brain function that you need here. Unfortunately, meditation is very difficult for me, and I get frustrated with it and give up (a sign that it is a similar thing). But I’d recommend trying it. You could also try fantasizing. Once you can get caught up in a story, your brain should be in the right place.

And we responded with this comment:

We love the idea of taking up meditation as practice for orgasm! So many women over-think their orgasms in the moment. We’re big fans of anything women can try *outside* the bedroom that may improve their chances at orgasm. (Kegels, masturbating, reading erotica, etc.) That way, once you’re actually in the bedroom, you can just be in the moment. For anyone interested in learning more about mediation, we both LOVED Sam Harris’s latest book, Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion.

On a final note: If you’re one of those people who says, “I could never meditate,” or “Meditating’s just not my bag, baby,” then we suggest you check out this hilariously awesome video below, “F*ck That: A Guided Meditation.”
