Pompoir is a sexual technique in which the vagina is contracted and relaxed around the penis during penetrative sex, stimulating the penis without the need for either partner to move their bodies. This technique stimulates the penis in a different way than typical penetrative sex and is likened to a massage. Performing pompoir requires gaining control of the pubococcygeus muscles, a component of the pelvic floor. These muscles are also activated during Kegel exercises, but pompoir requires greater control and capabilities than the simple contracting and relaxing Kegels require.
Pompoir is believed to have been perfected in Eastern cultures. It was also featured in the "The Joy of Sex." Although it claimed to make a woman a sex goddess, it did not describe how to perform it.
