What’s A G-Spot And How Do I Find It?

3 minute read

The G-spot has been notoriously hard to locate for some, which is why people may think it doesn’t exist at all. This is not the case, however. The G-spot is fairly easy to find if you know what you’re looking for. Once you find it, there are certain techniques you can use to stimulate the G-spot and potentially have a G-spot orgasm. Some people describe this type of orgasm as a stronger, more full-bodied experience.

What is a G-spot?

The G-spot is an area around two to three inches (five to eight cm) inside the vagina that is sexually sensitive for some people. Located on the front wall of the vagina, this nexus of nerves is where the internal structure of the clitoris and the tissues around the urethra connect.

The G-spot is just waiting for you to find it. Insert two fingers two to three inches (five to eight cm) into the vagina and curve them forwards towards the belly button.

Why is it called a G-spot?

The G-spot is named after German-American medical researcher Dr. Ernst Gräfenberg who documented this area of sexual anatomy in the 1950s. He did not, however, name it after himself, in the 1980s another group of sex researchers coined the term.

Do men have G-spots?

Yes, men have G-spots. The “male G-spot, ”also known as the prostate, is part of the male reproductive anatomy and is sexually sensitive for many people.

You can also stimulate the male G-spot externally by applying pressure to the perineum, the area between the anus and scrotum.

How to have a G-spot orgasm

Some people can orgasm from G-spot stimulation alone, however, most (around 80 percent) will need to combine it with clitoral stimulation to reach climax. To experiment with G-spot stimulation and orgasm rhythmically press the G-spot with a firm massage-like pressure using the finger tips, or a hard, curved, sex toy.

How to use a G-spot vibrator

A G-spot vibrator is curved, and may have a larger, rounded end. Insert the vibe into the vagina and curve it forward toward the belly button. Press firmly and rhythmically massage the toy against the G-spot. Experiment with higher and lower vibration levels, angles, and pressures.

The G-spot doesn’t have to be such a mystery. Once you learn what you’re looking for, you can locate the G-Spot and try certain techniques to make it feel good. Just know that what works for some people may not work for others. You may love G-Spot stimulation or feel kinda meh about it. Experimenting with masturbation or toys can be a good way to figure out what works for you.
