10 Techniques for Hands-Free Orgasms
Explore a deeper sense of pleasure by broadening your understanding of your internal sexual terrain. It’s time for a little self-discovery - sans hands.
"A hands-free orgasm is any type of sexual climax that does not involve the use of hands or digits of the person experiencing the orgasm."
says adult performer and licensed psychotherapist Jet Setting Jasmine.
Hands-free orgasms are just another way to explore your sexuality and your body. While you may or may not reach an orgasm, the fun is in the journey. So, come with your curiosity and feel free to wander, dear explorer. Here are ten techniques to aid you in a hands-free orgasmic experience:
1. Orgasmic Breathing

Channel energy through your body using the practice of conscious breathing. Don’t put a boundary on what you feel and allow the sensations to travel throughout your body, producing waves of tingly sexual pleasure that surge through every part of the body focusing on your pelvic area. You may also find profound relaxation from this exercise.
2. Remote-Controlled Vibrator

Have a little fun with your partner. Just wear or insert the toy while your partner uses the remote or app to both of your likings.

A study in the Sexual and Relationship Therapy journal found that “coregasms” don't rely on existing sexual thoughts or feelings; instead, they're thought to be the result of fatigue around the pelvic area producing a sensation that replicates an orgasm. This orgasm tends to happen more as an accident, but if you add some Kegels and focus on your nethers, maybe you’ll have a happy accident.
4. BDSM And Sensual Play

“Your partner will have to consent and enjoy the sensation that you’re delivering them for this to be a safe and effective route to hands-free orgasm.”
Carol Queen, Ph.D., sexologist for Good Vibrations and curator of the Antique Vibrator Museum reminds us.
BDSM can be a great way to expand your mind and playing with the boundaries around sensation and power in a safe and pleasurable environment.

The term “scissoring” has historically been associated with people with vulvas; however, folks with any genital configuration can give it a try. Similar to humping, this technique focuses on pubis-a-pubis friction.
6. Watching Porn

There's even a category of porn to watch that shows people having hands-free orgasms of their own if you need a little inspiration.

It’s possible to think yourself to orgasm. A 2016 study shows how just the thought of pleasure can feel hyper-real. This proves the connection between your mind and pleasure. So, explore your fantasies without touching yourself and see where it takes you.
8. Sleep Orgasm

People of all genders can experience an orgasm while they sleep. You may have minimal control over this orgasm but try to think some sexy thoughts before going to bed. Sexologist Gigi Engle suggests that you sleep on your stomach as the pressure on your genitals can increase the chances of sexual stimulation.
"Having them pressed against the bed can cause physical stimulation and therefore, erotic subconscious thoughts." Gigi Engle writes
9. Dry Humping

Saddle up for a little bump and grind. You can do this with your partner, a pillow, or furniture, and clothes are optional for this technique. The trick is to rub your pubis to create friction. If you’re with a partner, you may add some kisses, nibbles, bites, and whatever else you’re into but, remember no hands allowed.
10. Tickle ya Nipple

Some people are anatomically more sensitive to nipple play and can reach orgasm from nipple stimulation alone. MRI scans have shown nipple stimulation can activate the same nerve cortex as clitoral and genital stimulation; essentially, you can trick your brain because it can't tell the difference.
