No doubt you’ve heard of OMGYES’ revolutionary approach to vulva-based pleasure and if you haven’t, you are in for a treat! But, you might still be wondering, is OMGYES worth it and what can you learn from it. Well, I’m here to answer all those questions and more in this in depth, honest OMGYES review!

Here’s everything I’ll cover in this review:

Is OMGYES worth it? The Quick Answer

OMGYES, it’s worth it!

The short answer is yes, I think OMGYES is absolutely worth the investment. If you have a vulva and are curious to learn more about it and expand your understanding of pleasure, or you are a person who pleasures vulvas, you can learn something OMGYES, whether that’s practical techniques or better communication.

Here’s what I thought of OMGYES at a glance. I’ll give a more detailed review of each season below so you’ve got the full low-down!

What I loved most about OMGYES

  • Women empowering women and sharing what works for them
  • Live demonstrations of the techniques to show how they actually look on a vulva
  • Real vulvas showing that everyone is unique and reducing shame
  • Tasteful videos that feature real bodies and nudity without being overly erotic
  • Examples of language you can use to talk about sex and pleasure
  • Research backed information with money being put back into more research
  • Normalising the idea that we need to learn about our own and our partner’s experience of pleasure

Anything I would improve?

As always, I want to make sure you get the full picture in this OMGYES review — the good and the bad so you have all the information! While I think the OMGYES team have done an amazing job, here are the things I would improve:

  • More involvement of partners to model how to have these conversations and give the perspective of the partner learning these techniques
  • More diverse bodies to make it more inclusive for people in bigger bodies, people with disabilities, and trans and non-binary people
  • There are few questionable suggestions in the toy techniques course — find out more in my in-depth review of seasons 3

What is OMGYES, and what you can learn from it?

OMGYES is an online platform full of resources for discovering new ways for vulva owners to access pleasure.

It was started to combat the massive lack of practical information and break the stigma surrounding female pleasure. They wanted to give women the tools, language, and confidence to start exploring their bodies and show female pleasure from the female perspective — not the for-the-male-gaze porn depictions we are used to!

Another thing that really sets OMGYES apart is that their content is all based on research of women sharing their experiences. They collaborated with researchers at some of the top sexual research centers and surveyed and interviewed thousands of women to find out what breakthroughs had improved their experience of pleasure the most. From that data they were able to distinguish patterns and key themes that formed the basis for the course.

This research is a huge step forward for study of female pleasure, which is so much further behind compared to what we know about pleasure for penis owners. Plus, they reinvest money from OMGYES into conducting more research, so when you buy the course, you are also supporting more research!

How does OMGYES work?

Unlike many sex and pleasure education courses, OMGYES is not a subscription service. For a one-off payment, you get access to either the first season or all three seasons.

Season one focusses on clitoral stimulation, season two is all about internal pleasure, and season three is all about using sex toys.

Each season is broken down into topics that focus on a particular technique for increasing pleasure, such as edging. For each technique you get a range of materials, including short interviews with women talking about how they use the technique and what they love about it, text explanations, research findings, diagrams, live demonstrations, and interactive elements.

On top of that, you get tips for how to bring this new technique into the bedroom with a partner, which is invaluable as so many vulva owners struggle to get the stimulation they need during partnered sex!

You can work through the topics in order or dip in and out as you please — FYI that’s not one of their techniques, although maybe it should be!

OMGYES Review — The Full Lowdown

Ok, so now you know a bit more about how the course works, I’m going to give you an in-depth, season by season review, so you can figure out which package is best for you!

Season One — The Essentials

A selection of what’s on offer in OMGYES season 1

As I mentioned above, this season focuses mainly on clitoral pleasure and what better place to start! According to OMGYES only 18% of women orgasm from penetration alone, meaning the vast majority of vulva owners need clitoral stimulation to orgasm.

While this is no secret (I regularly shout it from my window at night just to make sure), just getting any old clitoral stimulation isn’t enough. It’s not a one stroke fits all clits situation!

Season one is broken down into three sections:

  • Three topics to reframe your attitudes towards female pleasure
  • Six different ways to touch a clitoris that cover different aspects of touch, such as pressure, rhythm, and speed.
  • Three methods for getting even more pleasure — orbiting, edging, and having multiple orgasms

What did I love in season one?

The OMGYES touchable video

I couldn’t write an OMGYES review and not talk about the touchable videos! This is interactive vulva you allows you to practice the technique by dragging your mouse or finger over the vulva, giving you verbal feedback to tell you how good you are doing or guide you how to do it better.

At first, it was a bit too uncanny valley! The fact I was masturbating an interactive vulva in an office full people didn’t help!

But, once I got past that initial weirdness, I was really impressed with this feature and think it’s a really great way to normalise practicing a technique and not being expected to know how to do everything perfectly first time! The verbal feedback also gives you a great model for how to guide a partner when trying this at home.

Live Demonstrations

There are also live demonstrations each women showing how they use each technique, which does so much for reducing any shame around your vulva or pleasure!

Season Two & Three — Internal Pleasure and Toy Techniques

Seasons two and three come as part of a complete package, together with season one, giving you access to all of the materials currently available on OMGYES. Here’s what you can learn and what I thought about them!

OMGYES Season 2 Topics

Season 2 — Internal Pleasure

Season two is chock full of tips and techniques to get more pleasure from internal stimulation.

I like that they talk about all types of penetration, whether that’s fingers, a penis, or a dildo.

I also loved the live demonstrations of squirting, which do such a great job of breaking down the stigmas surrounding squirting. You also get to see that the amount of liquid released varies from person to person and doesn’t have to be the super soaker style eruptions we see in porn.

Season three — Toy Techniques

This is a deep dive into how to get more pleasure out of your sex toys. While there’s still a lot of really great advice in this season, it was my least favorite.

First off, the good things…

It does a really great job of normalising using sex toys and giving ideas for how to alter the sensations of your sex toy for more pleasure or just a bit of variation.

And the not so good…

There are a few bits of advice that I thought were pretty questionable!

First of all, they suggest putting your toys in direct sunlight to heat up. While this isn’t dangerous, at best it’s going to take long time to work and give your neighbours a peek at your toy collection, and at worst it, might damage the material, depending on what it’s made of.

I also take issue with the suggestions for using household objects, including the ever-defiled cucumber. There’s no mention of making sure these objects are clean or putting condoms on them, which is vital for preventing infection.

They also suggest putting ice inside the anus, which I wouldn’t necessarily advise doing. The skin in your anus is incredibly thin and sensitive and easily damaged. I would stick to using chilled but not frozen, anal safe sex toys inside the anus.

My last gripe is another anal play one — I’m anal about anal, what can I say! They state that weighted ball toys can be used in the anus or vagina — which is a big no no! They do clarify at the bottom of the page that only toys with a flared base should be used anally, but it could be too late by then!

OMGYES Review — The Grand Conclusion

I definitely agree with Emma Watson — OMGYES is a really amazing resource, and I wish I had access to it when I was discovering self-pleasure!

It’s empowering to see women enjoying their bodies, taking control of their pleasure, and asking for what they want!

It’s affirming to see other women who have similar experiences, while also seeing how varied preferences are!

Vulva owners of all ages and levels of sexual experience can gain so much from this course! I would love to see more diversity in the people featured in the videos in future seasons though!

OMGYES has a LOT to offer for men who have sex with women too! You can learn vulva-pleasing techniques from the masters themselves, get to understand the massive variation in preferences, and get comfortable talking to your partner about what they like.

Plus, a partner that is committed to making your sex life even better is a MASSIVE turn-on in my books!

I’m also super excited to see OMGYES’s future projects come to fruition! According to their website, they will be exploring sexual pleasure during pregnancy, postpartum and menopause, as well as resources for how to rediscover pleasure after trauma or abuse.

They are going to include more gender-diverse pleasure and pleasure for penis owners, so everyone can get the full benefit of research-backed pleasure education!
