The Megagasm for Women
Let’s explore together what I call the megagasm, the tsunami of orgasms. Before you begin the tutorial, allow me to share with you one of the longest, most intense megagasms I ever had. This happened during the making of my experimental sex film, Sluts and Goddesses. We captured my megagasm on tape. It was almost five minutes long, very intense, and not at all ladylike! As you will see, my face looks as if I am having a baby. Several women who saw the movie told me that they’d also had similar kinds of megagasms. So I’m definitely not the only one who has them.

Ride The Megagasm Wave
During a megagasm it can feel as if there is a lifetime of pent-up emotion bursting free--and it is. You might feel a sensation of being “breathed by the Universe,” your body open with electricity streaming through. You may experience lots of tingling in your hands and lips and your jaw may chatter as mine does in the video clip you watched. Your lover may end up having some kind of contact orgasm too. Just hold on tight, and ride, ride, ride that humongous wild tidal wave of bliss.
Some people get scared of, or are uncomfortable with, the force of a woman’s megagasm—or, for that matter, her other orgasms. Women tell me they feel they have to hold back the full force of their orgasms because their lovers can’t handle it. That’s a crying shame. To begin resolving this issue, I suggest that, when you’re not in bed, you talk with your lover(s) about their fears and concerns. Explain to them how you feel, and that you want the freedom to really be the powerful volcano that you are. (Of course, you have to give yourself that freedom as well.)
How to have a Megagasm
It’s rather difficult to describe exactly how to have a megagasm, because women and their lovers are all so different. But here are some of my personal notes about megagasms:
Megagasms happen at times in your life when you need to release a lot of energy. You have to be in the mood to have such an intense release. Megagasms don’t happen all that often. In my experience, megagasms are brought about through very intense physical, sexual stimulation: very hard and fast vaginal penetration combined with really strong and steady clitoral stimulation. Sometimes they can be triggered by “erotic pain,” such as from biting or stretching the vagina wider.
Don’t hold back. Give yourself permission to delve as deeply as
possible into your biggest and strongest orgasm. Keep going beyond your
threshold, beyond what you thought you were capable of. To have more
powerful orgasms, get in touch with your physical power in places other
than the bedroom; practice karate, run up hills, dance wildly, etc. Be
willing to express your power. Let the lion inside you roar!
Remember, don’t let this tutorial make you feel inadequate if you have not yet experienced a megagasm. You are at the right place at the right time in learning about your orgasms.
Let me end with a quote from one of my favorite sex radicals, Wilhelm Reich:
“The orgasm is no longer a mere biological function, nor the side effect of casual pleasure… It is the very center of human experience and ultimately determines the happiness of the human race.”
