Tips and Techniques
With a Partner
There are many orgasm-inducing activities you can enjoy with a partner that you
can't do on your own. Oral sex, for example, unless you're freakishly flexible.
However, since everyone's body is different, you can't expect your partner
to automatically know what feels best for yours. Express what you like and
what you don't like, either with words, sounds or body language. You
can even show your partner with your hands how and where to touch.
All the tips for masturbation apply to partner time as well.
Don't be afraid to touch yourself during sex, to move your body in
any way that feels good, and to think about whatever turns you
on (there's no rule that says you can't think about Ryan Gosling).
With a Partner and a Vibrator
As many as 79% of women who use vibrators use
them with their partners. Vibrators such as the
ICONIC SMOOTHIE and FORM 3 are popular with couples because they can provide clitoral stimulation during penetration.

for you and your partner and adding it to your relationship, check out our section on Introducing a Vibrator.
