Orgasm control, also referred to as edging, peaking, or surfing, is a sexual technique which may be practiced either alone or with a partner and involves the maintenance of a high level of sexual arousal for an extended period of time without reaching orgasm.

Orgasm control is most easily learned through solitary masturbation, although many individuals enjoy including elements of orgasm control in masturbation of, or by, their partner.


Typically, the active partner will give slow, gentle stimulation to the passive partner, gradually bringing them up to the point very high in the plateau phase where an orgasm is actually building, but will then reduce the level of stimulation just below that needed to trigger the orgasm. By carefully varying the intensity of stimulation, the passive partner is kept in this highly-aroused state very close to orgasm. After a while they may be allowed to fall back to recover before the technique is repeated. It can be repeated as often as desired, but after a few repeats the passive partner's urge to orgasm can become overwhelming. When the active partner eventually gives the passive partner an orgasm, the orgasm itself may be stronger than usual due to the increased tension and yearning that builds up during the extended stimulation.

Orgasm control requires a high degree of skill on the part of the active partner, enough familiarity to be able to correctly react to their partner's responses, and to get the intensity and timing of the stimulation just right. As the active partner needs to already be familiar with the passive partner's responses, this technique is more likely to succeed when used within fairly established relationships, rather than more casual 'one-off' encounters.

Orgasm control vs. denial-oriented BDSM practices[edit]

Orgasm control differs from the BDSM practices of orgasm denial, tie and tease and tease and denial as the aim is the giving and receiving of the intensely pleasurable sensations involved, and the period of control is limited to a single encounter which ends in orgasm. The BDSM practices also involve a kind of orgasm control, but here the focus is more on sexual domination where (forced) stimulation and denial of orgasm feeds the sadistic and masochistic pleasures of the partners. The BDSM practices are also usually part of a longer-term D/s or S/M relationship.

Other meaning[edit]

Orgasm Control is also a pharmaceutical product name for pills to prevent premature ejaculation.
