Have you seen the bustle around the first season OMGYes, a guide about vulvas and what to do with them? It's there for good reason! OMGYes is scientific without being clinical, and exciting without being tacky. OMGYes is, basically, for everyone.

As I explored the website for the first time, I felt like I was being led into a secret, somewhat naughty world — the design classy and simple, I felt more like I was looking at a recipe book with exquisite cakes than a porn site. Creating a feel that's part research study, part close friend discussing sexuality in an open and honest manner, the site is unlike anything I've ever seen before. 

I didn't know exactly what to expect, but after a friend told me that OMGYes was "all about vulvas and what to do with them", commenting that it was certainly "better than high school sex ed", my curiosity got the better of me. At $39, reduced from $59, it was worth it. 

What Is OMGYes?

You might have seen the bustle about OMGYes on social media, but what exactly is it? Is OMGYes a sex guide for folks who want to learn how to satisfy their female partners more deeply? Is it a guide to better masturbation? Does it hold the key to great sex? Well, in short, yes — OMGYes is all of these things.

After asking a thousand different women in-depth questions about their sexual pleasure, OMGYes teamed with researchers from the Indiana University’s School of Public Health and the Kinsey Institute to find out more from another thousand women, leading to the first-ever peer-reviewed study on the topic of women's sexual pleasure. While the way in which individual women prefer to touch and be touched varies, the team found central themes, which it's now sharing with eager consumers.

The first ever study on women's sexual pleasure? I know, right? About time, too. We live in a world in which three quarters of 16 and 17 year old teenagers of both genders have watched porn [1] — not exactly known to focus on the needs and desires of women. It's easy for young people to get the idea that sex is all about penises and the male orgasm, and that's a bloody shame. Even self-declared feminist men may fall into the trap of thinking that rubbing it up and down for a while automatically causes a female orgasm, while countless women depend on vibrators to help them climax. 

What is OMGYes? A remedy for all of that. Delivered in handy sections covering different stimulatory techniques, OMGYes unlocks things you didn't even know were there — from ways to get close to climax and then delay it to reach a stronger orgasm, to rhythmic tapping and letting distracting thoughts go during sex so you can enjoy yourself more. 

A bunch of down-to-Earth, sex-positive women tell you all about the techniques they enjoy most and how they learned about them. Then, they take off their clothes and demonstrate it for you, while providing verbal guidance. If that sounds rather intimate, that's because it is. But it's beautiful rather than tacky, and scientific without being clinical. 

If a picture says more than a thousand words, what's in these videos could never adequately be described on paper at all. As if that wasn't enough — which it is — you can even try your freshly learned techniques out on the "virtual vulva" of the women giving the demonstrations. 

OMGYes, its creators make it very clear, isn't an app, but a website. There's nothing to download, and everything on the site works in your browser. As a currently tablet-less person, I'm certainly happy about that, and OMGYes works perfectly fine for you if you're on a laptop. When it comes to the virtual vulvas, however, you should definitely use a touch screen if you can. OMGYes' software captures the subtleties of pressure, you see, and tapping with a mouse, the woman whose vulva you're practicing on is going to complain that you're applying too much pressure, or not enough, and you won't be able to do much about that. After a while, she gets "fed up" and tells you that she thinks "we should take a break". (Dare I say it? There have certainly been times when I wished I'd said that, but faked an orgasm instead — exactly the kind of thing immersing yourself in the world of OMGYes gives you the confidence to leave behind.) 

Who's OMGYes For?

OMGYes is for anyone who's got a vulva, interacts with one on a regular basis, or plans to.

It's for any woman who never wants to fake an orgasm again — not just because OMGYes offers you techniques that will get you there, but also because it creates an atmosphere around sex that will leave you unwilling to fake, and give you the confidence to tell your partner exactly what you like or else to stuff it. 

It's for any woman who thinks only a vibrator can help her reach climax. You're wrong, and OMGYes will show you your fingers can be much more exciting than a battery-powered device. 

It's for any couple with an internet connection and at least one vulva between them. Exploring the techniques together and experimenting on virtual vulvas will lead to better sex, open and honest discussion about sexual satisfaction, and a good laugh to boot. 

It's for any young person, male, female, or neither, whose views of sex were deeply skewed by blatantly one-sided pornography or who thinks that that whole condom-banana demonstration in sex ed may have helped with STD prevention but not with discovering how to have pleasurable sex. 

The first season of OMGYes is, like my friend said, all about vulvas and what to do with them, and if you want to learn more about vulvas and what to do with them, OMGYes is for you. If the first season leaves you hungering for more, you're in luck — the OMGYes team says: "In the future, we’re also planning to cover penetration techniques and angles, how pleasure changes after childbirth, and how pleasure changes after menopause."
