There are different kinds of orgasms. Clitoral, vaginal, anal, nipple, blended, g-spot, squirting, multiple - there's sleep orgasm and coregasm (which is orgasm when exercising). This is good to know that your physical body can experience these things and what's possible in physical pleasure. But sometimes I feel what's missing about the conversation of exploring sexuality is the energy surrounding the orgasm, or the energy that leads to the orgasm.
There is orgasm that is purely energetic, (I teach you a technique for this in my book, "Crystal Healing & Sacred Pleasure"). This technique requires simply moving the energy in your body to experience climax. But working with different Chakrubs offer something different of an experience. It has to do with context.
I think we can know every technique in the book, but if the energy isn't right - the techniques won't work. Techniques for orgasm won't work if the context is wrong. When you choose a Chakrub based on its crystal - you are choosing the environment you want to create within your body to offer yourself a pathway to climax that is aligned with what you're needing most in that moment.
Part of the "loving yourself" with chakrubs has to do with "knowing" yourself, "accepting" yourself, and providing yourself with what you need in order to feel aligned with your truest sense of being. Even before you start a physical practice with your Chakrub, you are starting the process of loving yourself because you are getting to know what you want on these energetic levels.
When I started this concept back in 2011, I only had three stones available. Rose Quartz, Obsidian, and White Jasper. It wasn't long before I realized I had an affinity towards the obsidian, and figured the reason why was because I was releasing so much built up internalized anger. Here I was starting a brand whose ethos was all about love, and I was working with a stone that was helping me express the deepest repressed parts of my psyche - it wasn't always pretty, but it was completely necessary for my healing journey.
There was a time I worked with my rose quartz that I specifically remember, because the epiphany I had. I realized I wanted to hear the words, "I love you" while making love to a parter, and in that practice I began to feel into the energy of a partner I wanted to manifest. I couldn't have the same relationship with my rose quartz as I did the obsidian - the energies they conjure are different.
To this day I have a Chakrub I use when I'm simply wanting to feel physical pleasure - and don't want to have any "downloads" or realizations. When I am craving inspiration I go for the Clear Quartz, when I want vivid dreams I reach for my amethyst. Different Chakrubs will offer us different experiences, and knowing what you're needing moment to moment and offering that to yourself is part of the process of learning to love yourself.
Here is a list of some Chakrubs and how they may offer you different energy based on their crystal properties:

- Smoky Quartz - Made from smoky quartz, associated with root chakra, solar plexus, and crown chakras. A beautiful companion to bring feelings of stability and grounding.
