Maya Rudolph and John Krasinski in “Away We Go”
Almost equally depressing as men getting paid more than women on average, men also statistically have more orgasms than women during sex. According to Planned Parenthood statistics, as many as one in three women have trouble reaching orgasm when having sex, and almost 80 percent of women have difficulty reaching an orgasm from vaginal intercourse, alone.
OMGYes, a new app that launched late last year, is attempting to even the playing field and help subscribers demystify the female orgasm. According to its creators, Lydia Daniller and Rob Perkins, the app’s mission is to “lift the veil and take an honest look at the specific ways women actually find pleasure.” The app has more than 47 instructional videos to help you better understand a woman’s body, and even let you practice getting her off with touchable, interactive videos.
As you the touch the on-screen vagina, the “woman” responds to you with helpful feedback like “I’m close” or “Stop.” In true “teach a man to fish” mentality, the idea behind these videos is that you’ll retain more information by doing than watching. It’s also arguably less daunting to try out new techniques the app suggests like “edging” and “hinting” on a virtual vagina, versus a real one. (Unless you’re the type of person who doesn’t mind hearing “um, stop” after you’re already ten letters into your alphabet clit dance). Learn more, below:
