WHEN even someone as famous as actress Emma Watson is happy to admit to subscribing to a site, it must be doing something right.
Dedicated to researching what makes sex sizzle for women, the team at OMGYES have launched an app with tips and tricks to help women achieve the big O, with or without a man.
The mobile app features a vitual vulva and teaches users 12 techniques to boost arousal based on their tried and tested research.
Users in Australia, where there are more women signed up per capita than in any other country, have been singing it’s praises.
Australian site news.com spoke to singleton Kellie, 47 from Melbourne who said: “I was a little uncomfortable in being faced with a vulva to play with on my iPhone, but I thought if men used this app for practice then my sex life would be fabulous!”
The programme is based on extensive research and surveys conducted on American women of all ages and is developed, by scientists, into video guides and other tools to boost sexual satisfaction.
“When it comes to sex and pleasure, everyone’s trying to play it cool. No one honestly knows what’s going on,” explained OMGYES program director Claire Kim.
“For each topic, our PhD researchers do thousands of surveys and interviews via Skype — asking people what breakthroughs they figured out about pleasure that they wish they’d known sooner.”
“Then the most prevalent ones we choose names for and follow up with detailed research into those,” Ms Kim said.
The site and app features techniques with names like ‘edging’, ‘hinting’ and ‘orbiting’ and it’s very much science not smut.
The images and videos featured on the site are not pornographic or airbrushed and aren’t designed for men to look at, though men are encouraged to swot up on technique too!
Instead the site aims to provide frank discussions around pleasure and sex which feel more like conversations with (very close!) friends.
With young people finding it increasingly difficult to ask questions about sex and turning to the internet for answers, a site like this can only be a good thing.
While an app isn’t going to solve all sexual problems, it’s a positive sign that women’s sexual pleasure is being addressed in this easy to access way.
While sexual confidence will always have to come from within, there isn’t any harm in spending some time working out what you like so you can ask for more of it when you’re between the sheets!
