*Editor’s note: Affect3D is proud to welcome Marie of GeekySexBlog over to the 3DX specialty site. You might have heard her voice (well, moans of orgasmic pleasure) in the release of Sex Addiction. Not only is able to convey some very sensual sounds, she is also a skilled writer, using her knowledge on the world of sex to create some of the best written articles out there. We’ll be reposting some of our articles from her site. Expect to see new articles from her in the upcoming future. Enjoy!
I realized while writing a review that I needed to explain just what I meant by the certain types of orgasms I was trying to describe. Thus, I have devised the Marie Fasolt intensity scale for orgasmic activity. If you can’t tell immediately, it’s modeled after the Mercalli intensity scale, which is used to describe the intensity of earthquakes with easily visualized examples (e.g. rattling dishes or glassware is categorized under a 4 on the scale.) I would have preferred to base my scale off a more objective measurement, like a magnitude scale, but I have no idea how to empirically measure my own orgasmic activity.
|I. Instrumental||Twitch||A single vaginal contraction. Not observed by people unless in favourable conditions. Generally the result of seeing something stimulating. Often occurs in women when thinking about desirable actors or chocolate.|
|II. Weak||False Orgasm||A premature contraction or series of contractions that appears to be an orgasm but is not. Observed as a singular or short series of gasps or moans, sometimes accompanied by brief shaking.|
|III. Slight||Near Orgasm||A partial orgasm without release, usually occurring when an orgasm is withheld or misplaced. Sometimes referred to as “edging.” Observed as heavy sighing, tensing of muscles, holding of breath, and quiet moaning. Response appears similar to a teenage girl fawning over romantic vampire fiction.|
|IV. Moderate||Ruined Orgasm||An orgasm with incomplete release. Occurs when stimulation ceases during the orgasm, allowing an initial wave of pleasure but then denying the full satisfaction of an orgasm. Almost always results in discomfort that requires additional stimulation to relieve. Extremely frustrating, female equivalent of “blue balls.”|
|V. Strong||Minor Orgasm||A genuine orgasm, but one lacking in intensity or duration. Usually unsatisfying and often followed by the pursuit of additional stimulation (or partners). Soft moans or labored breath are the most a Minor Orgasm is likely to bring. Often the result of half-assed or mediocre stimulation, or stimulation without adequate foreplay.|
|VI. Very Strong||Moderate Orgasm||A satisfying clitoral orgasm, categorized by gasping breath, whimpering, and clearly audible moans. This is the most common orgasm to result from masturbation. Can be a conclusive orgasm or one that arouses the need for penetration. Always yields copious lubrication.|
|VII. Intense||Strong Orgasm||An intense orgasm that is primarily vaginal, but often assisted by clitoral stimulation. Spasming or jerking is common, and a few instances of squirting have been observed. Vocally, a Strong Orgasm is signified by loud moaning and obscenities. G-Spot vibrators and the “come hither” motion are known to provoke this response.|
|VIII. Violent||Major Orgasm||A violent orgasm, typically resulting during simultaneously occuring vaginal and clitoral orgasms. Characterized specifically by flailing, thrashing, or erratic spasming. Vocal response appears as continuous moaning, yelling, or screaming which can be heard through walls and sometimes in neighboring buildings.|
|IX. Extreme||Mythical Orgasm||Never recorded.|
