Pulsing feeling deep in my vagina

Hello! This is my first post here and I feel a little weird so please bear with me uwu

Anyways, my question is about a feeling I get in my vagina- like, deep in there. Almost like in the pit of my stomach. And it feels a little like when I'm on a roller coaster and my stomach "drops." Except, wow, it feels way better. It's involuntary, too, and seems like a sort of contraction or  pulse, like the kind people describe when they're describing orgasms. But it's obviously not that. It's really short. Usually it happens when I'm daydreaming or fantasizing about something (and it's usually in class, haha).

I guess it's just being turned on but- woah. It's unreal. Like nothing I've felt before. (I don't think I've actually had an orgasm yet. What I usually feel when I masturbate is kind of intense pressure concentrated in my clit, and a huge increase in sensitivity, so much so that it hurts to go on! It feels good but it's kind of... not what people describe.)

Anyways. This feels nothing like that sensation- instead, it's like a wave of warmth emanating from the pit of my stomach (or somewhere deep deep in my vagina where, no matter how hard I clench to try to recreate the sensation, nothing happens) outwards, like a shiver or something. Like how I'd imagine an orgasm to be except an orgasm would probably be way more intense. And longer. And actually involve touching.

This was really long. Sorry about that. I guess I'm rambling. My main point is- wow, what is this, and why does it feel so different? Do other people get this, too? What's causing it? Is it really just being turned on? And, Jesus Christ, how can I make it happen more often or recreate the feeling because, dang, it only happens a few times a month and usually only during a certain window of time (ovulation, maybe?)

Okay, yeah. Sorry this got so long. Thanks for any answers!

I get that sometimes. It comes as a surprise every time. I might be reading a romantic or sexy scene in a book or thinking about kissing a dude, and boom! Stomach drop. I can't recreate it either, which is kinda sad, but which also kinda makes it more fun. :-)

I'm not sure what it is really, but I think it's my body's way of telling me I'm turned on. It's really difficult to hide because I usually do a fully-body shiver. It's kind of embarrassing for me but I don't think it's anything to worry about.

1: I have gotten lightning in the pit of my stomach a few times. (Only once or twice when kissing my now-spouse, but hey. The rest were, yup, when fantasizing.)

2: Don't discount possible orgasms. They are many and varied, and don't always last very long. Mine are pretty much like a sneeze -- there's all this buildup and BAM. (And if there's not enough buildup, I still get the over-sensitivity, but it's like a sneeze that goes away and leaves the nose itchy and unfulfilled. Blah. Also, I am not multi-orgasmic; I have a refractory period of around 45 minutes, and often a second one isn't really worth the effort anyway.)

...bah, it's midnight. I must not babble more, even if I do love to hear myself type. >_>

Anyway, arousal and/or a variation of orgasm are both potentials. (In my case of lightning, arousal.) Could be an actual twitch that stimulates cervix/vagus nerve. (Vagus nerve can cause nausea, but it also is a non-spinal nerve that links brain & cervix. People with fully severed spines can sometimes obtain orgasm via cervical stimulation because of this.) Enjoy it? O:>

I...

Love those.

Usually, I get them the VERY FIRST TIME I fantasize about something in particular, but I can also get them when looking at or reading something especially hot. For me, they're completely different from an orgasm, which I can only achieve through clitoral stimulation--and they're way better. No idea why. I've always imagined that they're some sort of cervical contractions, considering they're kind of in that "pit of the stomach" area... but I've long stopped questioning what they are and why they happen. All I know is that they're amazing.

Oh, hey, me too! Yeah, sadly it's usually it's the first time (so maybe I should just find new things to think about). It's like a thrill for me, so maybe it's just the excitement about something new coupled with arousal.

Yeah, this is exactly how I feel when I get turned on but in a romantic way. So for me, there's two types of turned on: sexy turned on where I'm horny and romantic turned on where I'm horny but also full of love and fluff and hugs. That stomach-dropping feeling happens when I'm watching a movie or TV show and a couple I'm really invested in or identify with kiss passionately, or if I'm reading a sweet sexy scene in a romance novel, or when I kiss someone I care about. It's pretty much the best and makes me smile every time :)

Also I agree with not discounting the possibility of these being orgasms. Orgasms look and feel different for different people so even if the technical physiological definition of an orgasm is a climax of sensation with contractions of the vaginal walls, it's OK to call something that feels good an orgasm or a mini-orgasm or what have you. It's also totally OK to not worry about labeling anything as an orgasm and just enjoy how your body feels!

Agreed, I get those watching fictional couples get close and kiss, and a lot more rarely with my boyfriend when I'm really turned on all of a sudden I wouldn't call them orgasms though since there's no build up for me and it's pretty sudden.

Also for me it has more to do with arousal, and I wonder if that's what getting a hard-on feels like ? we'll never know!

I get this, mostly when I'm reading a sexy book or thinking sexy thoughts about my sweetie. It feels warm in my stomach and my vagina pulses/throbs. It's not like an orgasm for me (mine are intense and I'm multi orgasmic) but it does feel very good.

This! i also do an unintentional holding of breath at the same time.
i never really thought about this particular feeling much until op described the whole sensation.
so thanks, OP :)

I sometimes get that during Pilates...if you have the time and inclination, you might check out some mat classes. It seems like since I started doing Pilates in earnest (2-3 classes a week + fifteen minutes or so on my own on other days), it's happened more often!

Huh... interesting suggestion! I wonder what causes that, though. Loosening muscles, maybe? Sounds pretty cool, I'll have to check that out.

I've felt a pulsing whenever I read something erotic and I understand why, but for the past day, I didn't read a thing and I've a pulsing. It's frustrating. I'm 18 and I've never done anything sexual with myself or anyone. What do I do to make it go away?
