Definition - What does Pompoir mean?

Pompoir is a sexual technique in which the vagina is contracted and relaxed around the penis during penetrative sex. This technique stimulates the penis in a different way to ordinary penetrative sex.

Pompoir is thought to have been practiced in the ancient Indian city of Pahmpur, where it gets its name, before spreading to the rest of the world. It is celebrated as a way to forge a deep mind and body connection with a partner.

Pompoir is sometimes called Andhra Sex.

Kinkly explains Pompoir

Unlike regular penetrative sex, where partners tend to move together rhythmically, during pompoir both bodies remain still. The only part that moves is the vaginal muscles, which perform a pulling motion while contracting, and a pushing motion on release. This creates a rhythmic pulsing, which can feel amazing on a penis. The technique can also lead to intense orgasms for both partners.

While the physical sensations are incredible, pompoir also nurtures the emotional bond between both parties, who must show restraint and focus on their partner.

Kegel or pelvic floor exercises can strengthen the vaginal muscles and help people get more in tune with that part of their body. However, pompoir isn’t simply about performing Kegels during penetration. Rather than simply contracting and releasing the muscles, the vagina actually pushes, pulls and even twists the penis, as though it is being milked.
