When achieving orgasms, we stimulate our pleasure zones, such as the clitoris, g-spot, glans penis, nipples, vagina, anus, and other related regions. It’s done with our hands, mouths, and trusted sex toys and usually succeeds.
But as people explore different ways to please themselves, we’re also starting to discover new, unconventional ways to climax. Some say they cum from doing core exercises, others through thigh squeezing, and now there are claims that you can cum through thoughts alone.
Is that really possible, though? We’ll soon find out.
What Exactly is Mind Orgasm?
Mind Orgasm, also known as mindgasm, mental orgasm, and energy orgasm, is a kind of climax that can be achieved without physical stimulation.
It has been featured in a TLC show, “Strange Sex.” As you can see in this clip, several people are experiencing mindgasms. The workshop is led by Barbara Carrellas, a sex/life coach, sex educator, workshop facilitator, university lecturer, motivational speaker, and theater artist. As shared on her website, “The more Barbara explored sex and consciousness, the more she saw the possibilities for healing and expanded consciousness in all forms of “sacred” practices, including Tantra, Tao, Quodoushka, Reiki, breathwork, metaphysics, performance, ritual, herbal medicine, bodywork, erotic massage, commercial sex work and BDSM.”
She has written books about energy orgasms, such as Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century, Ecstasy is Necessary: A Practical Guide to Sex, Relationships and Oh So Much More, and Luxurious Loving: Tantric Inspirations for Passion and Pleasure. She also conducts workshops that tackle sexual and spiritual practices, letting her students explore different ways to be in tune with their sexual selves.
Another case study also proves that mindgasms exist: a 33-year-old woman who developed the ability to climax without genital stimulation after learning tantric training.
How to Achieve Mind Orgasm
Do you want to experience touch-free pleasure? Get comfortable, shut down all distractions, and let your mind play with your erotic senses. Below are some practices you can do to help you reach a mindgasm further. Remember that there are limited studies of this type of climax, so it’s okay if you cannot reach it after a few tries.
1Engage in breathwork.
Tweaking your breathing can help when trying to achieve a mind orgasm. Breathwork is a gateway to the depths of your being, allowing you to intimately connect with your body and mind.
You can try mouth breathing since it stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, increasing arousal. On the other hand, you can opt for slower, deeper breaths from the nose if you want a more relaxed approach. Below are specific breathing patterns or techniques that you can explore on your next mindgasm session:
Breath of Fire
- Close your eyes and keep your belly relaxed.
- Start inhaling and exhaling quickly through the nose for 15 seconds. The pace should be about 3 breaths per second. Keep your mouth closed throughout this step.
- Once the 15-second round is over, take a break. Breathe normally for 15-30 seconds, then try again, but this time, the duration is 20 seconds. After the 20-second round, please take a quick break, then do it again, but it’s 25 seconds long. Keep increasing the duration by 5 seconds for each round until you reach one full minute.
- Close your eyes, relax, and take a few deep breaths. Breathe normally for a few seconds.
- Inhale normally, but count “one” to your mind as you exhale. Keep doing it until you reach number five.
- Once it’s on five, start with number one on the next exhale. The main reason the counting is limited to five is to keep your focus.
- Do this by counting breaths for 5-10 minutes. If you’re a beginner, start with five minutes, then work your way up with every session.
2Let your imagination run wild.
Another great way to experience a mindgasm is by using your imagination to think of sexual fantasies and scenarios. Allow your imagination to roam freely, exploring the most intimate corners of your desires.
Imagine yourself making love or watching other people have sex. Got some kinks? Think of them as you breathe in and out… You’ll soon feel all heated up with these naughty thoughts, which can then result in a satisfying mind orgasm.
3Listen to audio erotica.
Another great way to tap into your sensual senses is listening to audio erotica. Whether it’s a whispered confession, a passionate encounter, or a slow, teasing build-up, the narratives in audio erotica are designed to captivate your imagination.
As the story progresses, you find yourself entangled in the characters’ desires, their experiences becoming yours. The next thing you know, you’re in a steamy frenzy as the characters reach an immense climax.
Mind orgasms, albeit introduced a few years ago, is still a fresh concept. There are still limited studies and testimonials surrounding this type of climax, but there’s no harm in trying, right? If you want to experience mindgasms, go for it!
All you need to do is get into a private space and let your mind tap into your erotic self. Enjoy the journey, for in the realm of the mind, ecstasy knows no bounds.
