If you’re struggling to bring your woman to orgasm, you’re not alone. Since every vagina is shaped slightly differently, the moves that get women off vary from person to person, meaning. every woman needs something a little bit different in order to reach the big O. Also, that “something” might not expressly involve your dick, since only 12.9 percent of women consistently reach orgasm through penetration alone.

While there’s no “one fingering trick finishes all” technique, there’s definitely some general guidelines that can help steer you in the right direction.

Here’s what thousands of women had to say about the precious art of fingering.

1. It’s More Than Sticking Your Finger In and Out

Remember, it’s what’s on the outside that counts. Specifically, we’re talking about the clit. The kind of “fingering” that actually brings women to orgasm is rubbing of the outside area around the clit. In fact, that’s how most women masturbate because it’s what actually feels the best. For the vast majority of women, penetration is nice, but it’s kind of like rubbing your balls — pleasant, but not going to make you cum.

2. Different Women Like Different Things

The guys who think they have “the move” are usually worst at giving pleasure. The mentality of “one move to finish them all” makes sense to men, since moves like stroking and sucking work for almost all guys, and if there’s lube, just about any rubbing is going to feel good to some degree. But for women, it’s truly different strokes for different folks.

The clit is so sensitive that touch can sometimes feel really uncomfortable or even hurt certain women. So if some move felt really good for your ex-girlfriend, that doesn’t mean it’ll do the trick for your next girlfriend. A prime example is that some women orgasm almost exclusively through their clitoris, while others prefer a G-spot orgasm. In bed, try experimenting with using different fingers, since some girls might prefer you use a smaller, shorter finger, while others might prefer the middle finger for maximal G-spot stimulation.

3. Most Agree That ‘This One Move’ Doesn’t Do It

Porn that shows women getting rubbed out typically portrays a hard and fast back and forth motion, commonly known as the “DJ” because of how it mimics the spinning of a track. That kind of super fast cadence and pressure directly on the clit only feels good for 1 in 48 women. For the rest, it either doesn’t feel great or actually hurts. To put it into perspective, imagine someone taking your dick and rubbing the tip really hard with their palm as fast as they can. It’s a sharp painful tickle, and naturally, you want it to stop. For the vast majority of women, it’s not a good move, even if women in porn are pretending to like it.

4. Fingering Isn’t Just for Foreplay

It’s true that very few women get off by way of penetration alone. In fact, most women need their clit stimulated during intercourse in order to reach orgasm. That means you need to pay attention to your partner’s most sensitive part during intercourse if you want her to orgasm. In fact, a common sentiment from women is that the clit gets attention here and there, but most women would prefer to have it touched throughout the act.

5. Start by Touching Everything Except the Vagina

For most women, the more anticipation that’s built up before touching the vagina, the more aroused they become, providing more pleasure once you do start to touch her down there. The women who participated in the survey said that kisses on the lips, neck, shoulders, and arms usually do the trick, as well as gently, slowly stroking their stomach, legs, and thighs.You can’t go wrong with slow foreplay.

6. Be a Tease

Approach the crotch area, but keep passing by it as if it’s invisible. One method is called the “fake out.” To do it, you move your fingertip down your partner’s body from her neck to her breasts to her stomach, but instead of landing at her crotch, veer down her leg. Then, on the way back up, move your fingertip in another path that misses her crotch, too. These moves build anticipation and help awaken arousal. Many women love this kind of withholding and will eventually move their crotch toward your finger or tongue as it passes by — a good sign that the clit is ready to be touched. The more awake her body is, the more pleasurable it will be when you finally touch her clitoris.

7. Use the Hood

The clit has a naturally occurring hood of skin meant to help soften contact since the clit is super sensitive. Staying right on the clit is often pretty painful, especially after extended periods of time, so it’s important to mix things up. 

To balance this, most women say that “layering” with the hood brings them the right amount of pleasure without the pain that direct contact with the clit can end up facilitating. To try layering, touch the hood, rubbing it so that the pressure you’re putting on it makes contact with the clit.

8. Spread the Wetness

Before touching the clit directly, most women say they prefer you to spread the wetness from the inside of their vagina. Get it on your finger, and “paint it” onto the rest of the lips and clit.

Using this natural lube makes touching feel smoother, and allows your fingertips to glide and caress instead of pulling or catching on the sensitive skin. Keep in mind, you’ll likely have to go back for seconds and thirds of wetness in order to get it well coated. It’s also good to note that not all women make a lot of natural lube (even if they’re really turned on), so don’t be shy about adding some manufactured lube into the mix.

9. Touch the Clit Lightly

The most commonly appreciated “first touch” of the clit is one that’s feather-light. One woman even compared the initial touch she likes to rubbing honey on a butterfly’s wing. Keep your touch delicate and light so that your fingertip isn’t even moving the skin, just gliding over it. Remember, the clitoris is extremely sensitive, so proceed gently!

10. Pay Attention to Her Reactions

The guys who tend to be the best at fingering are the ones who start off gently and then try different moves, while watching and asking for feedback. They also ask questions that don’t put their partner in a tough spot. For example, questions like “Is that good?” or “Are you close?” are not the direction you want to go. Instead, ask questions like “Faster or slower?” or “Higher or lower?” The answers to these questions will actually give you useful information to make the pleasure better, and keep your ego intact.

11. Tell Her You’re Not in a Rush

One big factor that prevents women from reaching orgasm is that they have too many concerns running through their head. They’re worried that they’re taking too long, or that they’ll offend their partner if they ask them to change their moves.

The quickest, easiest thing you can do to up your chances of getting your partner off is assure her that there’s no rush. Say how much you’re into it, and that it can take as long as it needs to. Also, let her know that there’s no pressure if nothing happens. Many women can’t orgasm because they feel like they’re going to let their partner down if they don’t. If you take that end goal off the table, she’s actually more likely to get there.

12. Use a Toy

One sexy way to take things up a notch? Adding a toy into the mix. Here are a few products to help level up your next finger bang.

Überlube Luxury Lube

How to Finger a GirlAdam & Eve

If you’re looking for a lube that’ll provide more slip, Überlube is an ideal formula to try. It goes on soft and smooth, and it’s long lasting, meaning less is more. Plus, it’s packed with vitamin E, making it beneficial for whatever skin you’re putting it on. Lubes that get sticky after you’ve been going at it for a while are pretty much a recipe for lost orgasms, so make sure you’re using one that’s silicone-based, like this one. Bonus points: Überlube doubles as a massage lube, in case you two want to give each other a good rub down later on.

Bottom line: The best lovers aren’t the ones who can move their fingers a certain way. They’re the ones who will go the extra mile to make her feel comfortable enough to give feedback. If you can get your partner talking, telling you how she wants you to touch her and where (the vaginal opening, the outer labia?), that’s golden. The most mind-blowing orgasms you dream about are the ones that happen as a result of excellent communication, with a little trial and error throughout.
