Frequently Asked Questions

It’s a website — so there’s no software to download — it all happens in the browser of your laptop, desktop, tablet, or phone. The videos play on most any device, but Season 1 includes touchable video simulations that may be too graphically intense (ha) to run well on some older devices.

Yes. OMGyes is for anybody who cares about women’s sexual pleasure and wants to explore it even more. Around half of our users are women and half men. Some people use it alone, some use it together with their partners.

OMGyes isn’t about the basics. Most of the techniques and ways to intensify pleasure that we’re presenting had literally never been researched before. You’ll explore new things to try, new perspectives on things you do already, and get more tools for your toolbox.

Any purchase on OMGyes is a one-time charge. You buy it once and it’s yours. Like buying a book. There are no subscriptions, therefore no need to ever cancel anything.

When you buy a Season of OMGyes, you’ll get permanent access to that Season’s content. But in order to access other Seasons, you’d have to purchase them separately. Kind of like how when you buy a book, you’re not also buying all future books from that author.

Some people have binged a whole Season of OMGyes in a weekend. But we recommend going through one topic per week, so you can really have time to explore and apply it all. It’s also great as together-time for a couple or for a group of friends - like watching a tv show together and chatting about it after.

We did a lot of testing with users to find the sweet spot of being in-depth but not too long--something fun you look forward to, not a task. It turns out shorter videos are better than long ones. So we try to keep each video to under 4 minutes. Often, diagrams or animations are the best way to get an idea across. The time passes quickly because this is fun stuff. It’s like hanging out with really open friends who are confiding in us the details of how they come...No one looks at their watches when that’s happening, do they?

It would be wonderful if public institutions would give grants for research about pleasure! Unfortunately they never have and won't. So we have to charge something to pay for the ongoing research, production, and the salaries of an amazing team who produces and maintains OMGyes. Each season is a one-time payment, similar to buying a book. We all understand books aren't free because it takes money to make them — even science books. All of you who find OMGyes valuable and important are funding this ongoing research and production with your small, one-time payments and we thank you!

Lots! One user wrote in and said that he learned all the things that worked best in bed from a really open partner who turned the lights on, showed him in detail what worked for her, and let him practice until it was really clear. Using OMGyes is kind of like being in a room with lots of women who are really open like that.

We have given a great deal of thought to how we use pronouns and present information on the site. The research we do centers on vulva touch and was conducted with anyone who identified as a woman.

Our plan is to integrate more and more of the experiences of all kinds of people as we develop more content. We also plan to conduct the first-ever research into the specifics of pleasure for people who have transitioned!

Gosh, we really hope nobody died.

We’re not claiming to be experts — we believe that the collective wisdom of thousands is stronger than any one person's opinion.

We are, however, the first and only ones conducting large-scale, nationally representative scientific research about the specifics of touch and sexual pleasure.

Great question.

The taboo that makes people uncomfortable seeing women’s anatomy is the same one that has kept women’s pleasure so secret for so long. That’s the taboo we’re trying to get rid of. We think people are ready for an honest, clear-headed look at the details that make all the difference.

Subtle variations in pressure or angle or consistency actually feel really different. What one woman calls a ‘circular motion on the clit’ could actually hurt for another woman who also likes a ‘circular motion on the clit.’ You really do have to get up close and actually see what the variations are — and why they feel so different.

And, for the record, we also publish our research findings in academic journals, too. But research papers are pretty dry and this site is our way of making the findings practical, relatable and fun to explore for busy people. Our first batch of research was published in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, and we have more scientific publications in the works.

Thanks. We think it’s cool, too. There is something you could do: help us spread the cause. Tell friends about OMGyes— post it, tweet it, email a link. Or, if you're a writer, write an honest, personal review of your experience with the site, either as a post on our facebook wall or as a blog post. Speaking openly about this topic is what helps spread the cause!

We are engineers, educators, researchers, and filmmakers who, frankly, wanted this information for ourselves. We couldn’t find it and decided it needed to exist. We left our other jobs and have had a wild ride ever since. Read more about us and why we made it.

Absolutely.

But people are different in most ways and yet there are still huge fields of study and research about all the other ways people work. We think that “everyone’s different” has been a way people have avoided a taboo topic.

One of the most interesting findings from our research study is that there are actually shared techniques and variations across the majority of women. And rather than being like recipes, the techniques are more like ingredients that you can combine in thousands of different ways as you make them your own.

This is the first-ever, large-scale research on the specific kinds of sexual touch that are pleasurable. It’s the first because we've figured out a way to fund it, and it's powered by people like you. Thank you!

The women on OMGyes are regular people, not actors, who thought this information was important and courageously put themselves out there to benefit others. Their professions include literature professor, farmer, librarian, nurse, musician, biologist, student, teacher, surgeon, and more. They range in age from 20’s to 70’s and are from countries around the world.

When we put out a call for participants to appear on the site (like here for Season 3), we get thousands of applicants. Our production team chooses diverse, fun, relatable people who have personally had the breakthrough insights revealed by our research.

"OMG Yes" is a commonly used shortening of "Oh My God Yes!" in English. It's what someone says to exclaim pleasure and delight in and out of the bedroom.

Yes! You can switch the language you view OMGyes.com in with the language options in the bottom left corner of every page. Every video and simulation is hand-captioned. You can turn captions on and off by clicking the ‘CC’ button, in the lower right corner of each video. We currently have the following languages available: English, Deutsch, Français, Español, Español (LA), Italiano, Português, Nederlands, 日本語, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文. If your language isn't displayed there yet, check back for more translations soon!

Whenever the text is presented as the voice of OMGyes, we use the term vulva when referring to external female genitalia. We made the decision, however, not to ask participants (women who appear in videos and whose responses appear in quoted text) to alter their everyday language. We wanted the interviews to be improvised by regular women talking frankly and openly, as they would to friends. We experimented with correcting participants, but those interviews came across as staged and we felt intrusive. So we allowed the participants to stick with the language that came naturally.

A Season is simply our term for a set of OMGyes content that’s sold as a unit. If you ‘buy OMGyes,’ you’re buying one or more Seasons of OMGyes. Each has a different theme, with some surprise topics included. These additional topics are about powerful a-ha moments that really changed things for women we spoke to.

Season 1 contains 12 topics and 62 short videos exploring different aspects of external/ clitoral stimulation, and also dives into subjects like how much thinking can get in the way of (or enhance) pleasure. It has pioneering touchable videos, which allow you to practice techniques on virtual vulvas, guided by voice feedback from our participants. This is our debut effort that launched OMGyes. It’s gotten a lot of praise and attention, and we hope you love it as much as we do!

Season 2 contains 13 Topics and 82 short videos organized around the theme of penetration. It’s been a long time in the making, and we’re very excited to share it! You’ll find new science on everything from ingenious ways to stimulate the clit during penetration, to specific ways to play just inside the entrance of the vagina, to the real, honest ins and outs (ha!) of anal pleasure. Topics that may surprise you, like how women use their breath, or their muscles, to enhance pleasure and orgasm. New in Season Two are animations that let you to see what’s going on inside the vagina in different techniques.

Season 1 includes 11 touchable videos, which allow users to practice techniques they’ve just learned on a touchscreen or computer. Each of the women in Season 1 collaborated with our engineers to create a coded model of her preferences, reactions, and sensitivities. As you touch her simulation, you get the kinds of feedback she’d give, in her voice.

The simulations are a way of modeling different ways women actually give feedback to guide their partners to what feels best for them. This turns out to be the most important 'technique' of all when it comes to women's pleasure - guiding, suggesting, experimenting, listening and responding in real-time. (It's also a part of sex completely missing from sex scenes in TV/movies/porn!)

Because the simulations are so graphically intense (ha), they may not run on some older devices. Check to see if your device is compatible here.

Current plans for future seasons include Season 3 which will is about getting the most pleasure from sex toys. We’re creating a free-to-access resource about reclaiming sexual pleasure after trauma. There’s a team working on men’s pleasure. Another on trans pleasure including after gender affirming surgery. Still more working on pleasure in menopause and after childbirth. Some of these are already in the production phase. Thank you for making this all possible through your one-time contributions and spreading the word!

We’re going to keep doing more and more research and releasing more seasons of insights and techniques. We’ve just skimmed the surface — there’s SO MUCH MORE to discover and share.

Your statement will simply say OMGYES.COM — that's it. No details. Remember, this is a one-time charge, like buying a book you keep forever. So there is no recurring charge or need to ever cancel anything.
