Although its precise nature and location is still up for debate, many people with vulvas find that stimulating the g-spot can take sexual pleasure to another level. The g-spot is a particularly sensitive area in the front of the vaginal wall, about 2-3 inches up from the vaginal opening. 

Some researchers theorize that it’s part of the clitoris; others argue that it’s connected to the Skene’s gland, which, for those who have vaginas, is the equivalent of the prostate, and is tied to ejaculation (otherwise known as squirting!).

The g-spot is a particularly sensitive area in the front of the vaginal wall, about 2-3 inches up from the vaginal opening. 

For some people, g-spot stimulation isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. If that describes you, don’t worry! Each body is unique, and one person’s major turn-on can be another person’s “meh.” If you are among those who enjoys g-spot stimulation—or you want to find out if you are—read on to discover a few sex positions that can activate maximum g-spot pleasure!

1. The “Butt In The Air” Sex Position

The person being penetrated lies on their front with their butt up high. This allows a penis or dildo to place downward pressure on the front wall of the vagina, providing that magical g-spot access. 

The person lying down can easily access their own clit for extra pleasure. For those with disabilities or injuries to their hands, arms, or shoulders, this position allows for the deep penetration of doggy-style without putting pressure on the arms. 

Pro-tip: This position can be modified for greater comfort by placing pillows under the chest or hips.

2. The “Spooning” Sex Position

The person receiving penetration lies down with their back to the person doing the penetrating. The angle allows the length of the penis or dildo to rub against the g-spot with each thrust.

This is a great position for those with limited mobility, as it allows both partners to lie down. It can also be a very intimate position, allowing partners to get as close as two spoons snuggled in a drawer. 

Pro-tip: For those who prefer direct clitoral stimulation during sex, it can be tricky to get to your clit with your legs pressed together; you can try lifting one leg, or use a vibrator pressed against the labia.

3. The “On Top” Sex Position

Classic for a reason! 

The vulva-owner sits on top of their partner’s penis or strap-on, allowing them to control the depth and timing of thrusts for optimal g-spot access.

This position puts the person on top in control, allowing them to adjust their position for maximum pleasure.

Pro-tip: This position can put strain on the hips and lower back; for those with disabilities or injuries, short periods of on-top sex can be alternated with other positions for maximum comfort.

4. The “Face-To-Face” Sex Position

This position is great for when both partners have vulvas and want to experiment with simultaneous g-spot stimulation using a double dildo. 

Each partner lies down facing the other; the curve of the double dildo is in the ideal position to press against both g-spots during thrusting.

This position allows for kissing, hugging, butt grabbing, and getting close-as-can-be from head to toe. 

Pro-tip: This position can be tricky to master, and may require adjustments, modifications, and some practice in order to feel good for everyone involved.

5. The “Legs Up” Sex Position

The person wishing to experience g-spot stimulation lies on their back with their legs held high, and as far back as possible. This position is great for fingering or sex toys as the vagina is easily accessible.

The person doing the penetrating can go as deep—or as shallow—as needed. The clitoris is easily accessible for attention from a hand or a vibrator.

Pro-tip: This position can require a certain amount of flexibility and stamina; for those who find it challenging, it can be modified by flipping over and lying on their front while keeping their legs spread wide.

These sex positions that can activate maximum g-spot pleasure! 

Now that you have some ideas of positions to try, go forth, experiment—and enjoy your g-spot!

From what we’re taught in sex-ed, to portrayals in porn and popular media, it’s easy to get the impression that sex means penetration—perhaps with stops along the way for making out and manual or oral stimulation. But sex can be so much more!

Tuning in to the sensual aspects of sex, can bring a new level of richness and intimacy to sex play. It can also be a creative way to take things slow, accommodate an injury or disability, or heal from trauma, allowing you to be sexual together in a context where intercourse isn’t necessarily the end-game.

Tuning in to the sensual aspects of sex, can bring a new level of richness and intimacy to sex play. 

Focusing on each of the five senses is a great way to bring more sensuality into the bedroom. If you’re ready to incorporate new ways of being intimate with a partner, read on for some simple suggestions.

Erotic Sounds

Talking dirty, putting on music to set the mood, encouraging our partner with moans, gasps, and screams—sound is something many of us already incorporate into our sex lives. Talking dirty can be a wonderful way to build tension and amp up arousal without ever laying a finger on your partner. 

Tell them what you love about their body, what you’re feeling, what you’d like to do to them or have them do to you. If you find yourself tongue-tied when it’s time to talk dirty, reading erotica to your partner can be a super-sexy way to incorporate aural pleasure—without the pressure of having to come up with something yourself!

Music is nearly universal in its appeal and power to evoke feeling. Check out a sexy playlist on Spotify, or make your own.

What it’s great for: Particularly for those in long-distance relationships, sound can be a great way to stay connected. For people who want to get to know their partner better, exchanging fantasies, reading to each other, or trading sexy playlists can be a wonderful way to get closer. 

Tantalizing Tastes

Eat together! Fruit—sweet and juicy, with many varieties resembling vulvas— is one of the sexiest foods there is. Slowly savoring a ripe peach while letting its juice drip down your chin—while your partner watches, of course—can be just as erotic as a strip-tease. 

Drizzle each other with honey or paint each other with chocolate, and revel in the combination of sweetness and the natural saltiness of their skin. Yum! Just remember, don’t put these on the genitals because they can cause yeast infections.

Talking dirty can be a wonderful way to build tension and amp up arousal without ever laying a finger on your partner. 

What it’s great for: If you want to experience something deeply sensual with your partner, but aren’t quite ready for genital play, taking pleasure in food and a variety of tastes together can be extremely sexy. For people who have experienced body dysphoria or struggled with their body image, enjoying food in a sexual context can be a liberating way to redefine their relationship with food and their bodies.

Sexy Sights

Watching porn together is a classic way to enhance a sexual experience and spark conversation around preferences, boundaries, and new things you might like to try. Beyond porn, though, there are numerous ways to have a sexy visual experience. 

An erotic coloring book can be a fun way to explore new sexual territory in a low-stakes, playful context. Playing dress-up, or experimenting with different makeup looks, can allow you and your partner to explore diverse roles, play with gender, and bring a sense of fun to your sexual expression.

What it’s great for: Like sound, sight can reach across distance: if you have a phone or webcam, you can put on a show for your partner, no matter how far away you are. For gender-diverse individuals, exploring different looks with your partner can be intimacy-building, and increase your confidence. Sexy coloring or drawing is a wonderful way to spark conversation around what turns you on and what you might like to try without the expectation of full-on intercourse.

Stimulating Smells

Scented candles, essential oils, and perfumes all have their place. But there are many ways to bring your sense of smell alive during sex play. 

Although many of us have been taught that natural body odors are offensive, in reality, the wealth of pheromones and other volatile compounds in your partner’s sweat, breath, and genital aromas can be among the most powerful aphrodisiacs in existence! Close your eyes and inhale your partner’s unique aroma - because smell is so closely tied to emotion and memory, you may be surprised by what it evokes.

What it’s great for: Reveling in the natural scents of your partner’s body, and witnessing them enjoying your own, can be a tremendously powerful way to unlearn body shame and unlock new horizons of sensual pleasure.

Arousing Touch

There are many ways to enjoy sexual touch—from massage to sensation play. Gentle stroking with fingertips or a toy, even playing with your partner’s hair can all be great ways to share pleasure and build intimacy. 

Sensual touch away from the genitals can be especially suitable for people who are uncomfortable with genital touch—because they’re experiencing body dysphoria, processing trauma, recovering from an injury, or simply aren’t interested—being touched in a caring, sensual way by a partner who isn’t expecting the encounter to end in intercourse can be tremendously healing. 

What it’s great for: Having a safe place in which to experience sensual touch without the pressure to have penetrative or oral sex can be affirming, healing, and intimacy-building. 

Close your eyes and inhale your partner’s unique aroma.

Even if you usually want sex to result in intercourse, exploring diverse ways to experience sexual pleasure can enhance your sex life and your bond with your partner (and yourself!).
