If you had asked me how many different types of orgasms there were when I was 19, I probably would have said “…there are different types?”.

But then I bought my first sex toy, and started being more vocal about what I needed in bed, and, because of this, I’ve learnt that there are at least 12 distinct types of orgasms that women can have.
I’ve not had all of them yet, mind you. But to paraphrase my good friend 50 Cent, this year my plan is to get off or die trying.
If you, too, are curious about this kind of 'Dirty Dozen', then just keep reading to find out what they are, and how you can have them.
