Edging. The word almost sounds too mechanical to be associated with sex. But edging is anything but mechanical. Here’s our official definition of edging.
What is edging?
Edging, also known as “orgasm control” or “peaking,” is a sexual practice that involves intentionally delaying orgasm or prolonging sexual arousal right before reaching the point of climax. This practice is often used to intensify sexual pleasure and create a more intense and powerful orgasm when it eventually occurs.
How do you do edging?
- Sexual Stimulation: It begins by engaging in sexual activity, such as masturbation or partnered sex, to become sexually aroused. This can involve various forms of stimulation, including touching, stroking, oral sex, or other types of sensual contact.
- Near Orgasm: As you gets closer to orgasm, you deliberately slow down or pause the stimulation to prevent yourself from climaxing. This can involve decreasing the intensity of stimulation or briefly stopping altogether.
- Repeated Cycle: This cycle of building arousal is repeated- getting close to orgasm, and then backing off multiple times. Each time you edge, the sexual tension and arousal continue to increase.
- Intensified Orgasm: After edging several times, you may allow yourself to finally reach orgasm. Due to the prolonged state of heightened arousal, the resulting orgasm can be more intense and pleasurable.
Who is edging for?
Edging is for anyone. It’s often about control or else about experiencing heightened pleasure. It can be especially useful for people who struggle to feel intense pleasure normally, or for those who might feel they don’t currently have control over their sex drive or sexual reactions.
