What Is A G-Spot?

Does the G-spot exist? The answer is yes! But...because people experience it differently, and because there are gaps in scientific research, there is still a lot of mystery surrounding the G-spot. Some researchers believe the G-spot is a unique structure, while others believe it is an internal part of the clitoris.

Does the G-spot exist? The answer is yes! But...because people experience it differently (some love it, some don’t), and because there are gaps in scientific research, there is still a lot of mystery surrounding the G-spot. Some researchers believe the G-spot is a unique structure, while others believe it is an internal part of the clitoris. Either way, it is an enjoyable erogenous zone for many people.

To find your G-spot, place a finger inside the vagina and curve the finger tip forward towards the front of the body. The G-spot is around 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 sensations. 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 like it; some people find that G-spot play makes them feel like they need to pee, and yet other people need time to get used to it to find it enjoyable. So be patient, and if you’re playing with a partner make sure you’re communicating about what feels good and what doesn’t.

Unlike the clitoris, which can respond 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”).

There are a range of sex toys designed for G-spot fun. These toys are made of a hard material and 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 firm 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.

G-spot stimulation can make some people squirt.

Video transcript

The G spot in the vulva, in the vagina is approximately one to three inches towards the front of the body. So if someone were to try and look for the G spot they would go internally inside the vagina and do this sort of come here motion. It's not far, it's not like anyone has to go putting on SCUBA gear to find it or anything like that. It's not, it's not this buried treasure situation. But what usually works for G spot stimualation is direct and constant pressure. During internal sensation it can feel really, really intense for some it might feel like their bladder is being pushed up against and that is partially because that's exactly what's happening.
