What Is A G-Spot?

Does the g-spot exist? The answer is yes! But… there is still a lot of mystery surrounding this erogenous zone. People have different experiences with it (some love it, some don’t), and because there are gaps in scientific research, there are still a lot of unanswered questions about exactly what the g-spot is and how it works. What we do know is that g-spot play is enjoyable for many people.

What Is The G-Spot Made Of?

There are different opinions about what the actual structure of the g-spot is. Some researchers believe the g-spot is a unique structure related to the prostate, while others believe it is an internal part of the clitoris, and some believe it is a combination of both. More research is needed to clarify what the g-spot area is made up of.

How To Find Your G-Spot

To find the g-spot, place a finger inside the vagina and curve the finger tip forward toward the front of the body. The g-spot is about two inches inside the vagina—the exact location is different for different people.

It’s more of an “area” than a “spot,” so instead of looking for a magic button, try massaging around the area and experimenting with the different pressures. Some people can feel a slightly ridged spongy tissue; locating this tissue is a good sign you’re touching the g-spot.

Remember, just because you have found the g-spot doesn’t mean fireworks will start flying! Yes, some people love g-spot play, but others don’t.

Some people find that g-spot play makes them feel like they need to pee, and others find g-spot stimulation intense, and need to take time to find it enjoyable. Be patient, and if you’re playing with a partner, make sure you’re communicating about what feels good and what doesn’t.

G-Spot Play

Unlike the clitoris, which responds to light touch, the g-spot generally requires firmer pressure. To get this pressure you can massage the g-spot with your fingertips, use a g-spot toy, or try a sex position where the penis or strap-on cock presses against the front inside wall of the vagina (try “modified missionary” or “cowgirl”).

Sex Toys For G-Spot Stimulation

There are a range of sex toys designed for g-spot fun. These toys have a curved shape to bend forward and press on the g-spot. They come in vibrating and non-vibrating varieties, and can be made of silicone, hard plastic, metal, glass and other hard materials. Popular g-spot toys include the Lelo Gigi, the We-Vibe, and the Njoy Pure Wand. G-spot toys are more fun with lube, so remember to have a bottle of your favorite lube on hand.

It’s helpful to know that g-spot stimulation can make some people squirt, so be aware that this is a possibility and maybe put down a towel! Have fun exploring g-spot sensations.
