As the leading global movement for cervical awakening and orgasm, we believe in mixing pleasure with science. All of our programs are embedded in the context of science, psychology and sexology.
Going deeper - historical research on the cervix
For scientists and the medical industry, the cervix has largely been uncharted territory that usually only comes up in conversation during a pap smear. Reference to the cervix was associated with reproduction, cervical conditions, gynaecological examination and testing.
Dr Alfred Kinsey, known as the "father of the sexual revolution," reported in 1954 that the cervix did not respond to stimulation in his Kinsey Report “Sexual Behaviour in the Human Female”, revolutionising the way society thinks of sex. One particular statement in the book regarding the cervix, however, has been misinterpreted leading to a misconception in sexology and medicine that persists today, that the cervix is devoid of sensory nerves.
On page 584, Kinsey states, “All of the clinical and experimental data show that the surface of the cervix is the most completely insensitive part of the female genital anatomy.” It has led healthcare providers to conclude, erroneously, that the cervix is devoid of sensory nerves and can be cut or removed without consequence.
The Kinsey investigators reported when the cervix was “gently stroked” with a “glass, metal or cotton-tipped probe,” only 5% of 878 women reported they could feel it. Data was the basis of Kinsey’s claim of cervical insensitivity.
However, when the investigators stimulated the cervix of the same women with “distinct pressure” using “an object larger than a probe", 84% of the 878 women reported they could feel it. Kinsey’s conclusion did not take into account his own significant finding.
Female pleasure reimagined - the sensate cervix
In 1994, Dr Barry R. Komisaruk pioneered further research on female pleasure and confirmed that the cervix can respond to stimulation (with the absence of clitoral stimulation), uncovering that this reproductive organ is also the path to the deepest, full-bodied female orgasm! There is extensive clear data from diverse sources that women can certainly feel stimulation of the cervix. We also know through anecdotal research at Self:Cervix, that the cervix responds to stimulation - not only to pressure, but also to light touch.
