An orgasm comes in many different sensations, waves and vibrations. While no two orgasms are quite the same, there are certain characteristics that make up each category of the female orgasm.

The Cervical Orgasm
The cervix is the deep center of the vagina. Physically speaking, this is the gateway of life. When a penis or dildo rubs against the cervix during deep penetration of the vagina, the result can be an incredibly intense orgasm. That orgasm doesn’t come from cervical stimulation alone, rather than the act in which a penis or toy ignites all the other hot spots, stimulating the walls of the vagina, which also triggers the clitoral bulbs hugging the walls of the vagina.

How does it feel different from other orgasms?
A clitoral orgasm has a definitive build, a clear climax with pelvic contractions, and then a feeling of descent. It's similar to a penile orgasm.
A cervical orgasm is more along the lines of what we a "full-body orgasm," or an expanded orgasm. Meaning, the build is less linear. While there is an increase of pleasure, rather than it being focused in the clitoris, you feel that spread all over your body and then explode into waves you feel from your head to your toes. This can feel like pleasurable tingling and vibrations throughout your whole body and being, and can keep going for hours, as opposed to a clitoral orgasm, which typically lasts for seconds.
If the clitoris is like climbing a mountain, the cervix (and the G-spot for that matter) is like scaling a series of rolling hills. You get to the top of one, then you have a brief plateau, then you climb another, then have a plateau, etc.
The cervix is the reflexology point for the heart. Stimulating it will cause very intense feelings of love and spiritual transcendence. It's like taking the feelings you have when you first fall in love, and multiplying that by 10. Or you know how you feel after you've had a really good cry? Every cell in your being feels cleansed and revitalised. You feel like you are floating and in extreme bliss. The effects of it can last for hours and even days.

"For the cervix, it is all about the pressure.
The cervix does register sensation, big time, specifically the sensations of pressure—so much so that some women find deep penetration during intercourse a bit too intense or downright painful. Particularly if they are not sufficiently stimulated.
When you are sufficiently aroused and relaxed, stimulation of the cervix can contribute to a very intense orgasmic experience, so make sure to take your sweet time with foreplay.
Take it slow.
Positions that allow for deep penetration, like doggie style, are often best for having a cervical orgasm. But make sure that you don’t attempt them until you are fully turned on. Get the party started by having a clit orgasm first.
Focus on relaxing the body and registering the sensations. As arousal progresses, you can use deep breaths to simultaneously build the sexual energy and ease into the experience of being so deeply penetrated. And most important, don’t chase the orgasm. Relax into the experience and let the orgasm find you!"
