Orgasms 101: Priming for the 'Big O' 5. All roads lead to ‘O’There are lots of ways to reach orgasm. Some women can climax when their breasts are touched or when their necks are rubbed. Other lucky gals get there by fantasizing – without any touch at all. The point? Be adventurous when exploring sexual terrain. “We’ve gotten into this mindset that there’s only one type of orgasm, and it’s from stimulating the clitoris,” Whipple says. 6.

The tools in this section help you to improve your memory. They help you both to remember facts accurately and to remember the structure of information. The tools are split into two sections. As with other mind tools, the more practice you give yourself with these techniques, the more effectively you will use them. Mnemonics 'Mnemonic' is another word for memory tool. The idea behind using mnemonics is to encode difficult-to-remember information in a way that is much easier to remember. Our brains evolved to code and interpret complex stimuli such as images, colors, structures, sounds, smells, tastes, touch, positions, emotions and language. Unfortunately, a lot of the information we have to remember in modern life is presented differently – as words printed on a page. This section of Mind Tools shows you how to use all the memory resources available to you to remember information in a highly efficient way.
