Looking For The G-Spot? We Can Help!
Of all the mysteries we haven’t yet solved, here are a few: Are aliens real? What came before the Big Bang? What lies at the bottom of the ocean? Does the G-spot exist? While we can not really help you with the first few, here’s our take on the last one.
Safe to say, the existence of the G-spot has been quite a debate for many years now not only among men but also health professionals and women. While some have admitted to finding this very erogenous spot located a few inches inside the vagina, some have argued that it is a myth. So let us take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions about the mysterious spot.
What is the G-spot?
German gynecologist Ernst Grafenberg was the first person to have discovered the G-spot in 1950. It got named after him, hence.
Theoretically, the G-spot is located 2 to 3 inches inside the vagina, on the front of the vaginal wall. Extensive research has been going on about the G-spot. Some studies suggest that it is a part of the urethral sponge that becomes swollen when a woman is turned on, in order to prevent urinating accidentally while having sex. Some other more recent studies suggest that it is a part of the clitoris which extends inside the vagina. It is not to be confused with the clitoris itself, however.
Every vagina has this spot. However, for some this ‘magic button’ is supposed to lead to intense pleasure and can help one achieve an orgasm, while some women simply feel nothing even when it is stimulated.
How do I find the G-spot?
To find the G-spot, slide in your finger inside your vagina and curl it up towards your belly button and make a “come here” motion with your fingers. If you seem to find a spot that is more swollen or bumpy, congratulations! You have probably hit the G-spot. Once you know where it is, you can educate your partner as well.
You can also use sex toys (such as vibrators with a curved tip) which are specifically designed to stimulate the G-spot.
How should I stimulate the G-spot?
While some people like using their hands or vibrators, others prefer stimulation during penile intercourse. One should be able to comfortably communicate the same to their partner(s). It might be helpful if a man’s penis naturally bends upwards when erect. Else you could try adjusting your positions to make it more pleasurable as well!
A lot of women seem to like somewhat intense pressure on the G-spot. So that is something you might want to experiment with.
What is a G-spot orgasm like?
The G-spot stimulation has gained a good reputation for being very effective in helping a woman experience a powerful orgasm (or even multiple orgasms, for that matter). Most people also believe that a G-spot stimulation leads to ejaculation or squirting. In case you are wondering, a clitoral orgasm and G-spot orgasm can often feel quite different. But that need not be a reason of concern because whatever form the orgasm comes in, it is bound to feel pretty good!
Regardless of all the hype around the G-spot, we have to remember that not all women have sensitive spots and some actually find it uncomfortable. So try not to get too worked up trying to hit the spot. The best sex is whatever sex works for the both of you.
Here’s one piece of good news before we end: for most women, the G-spot becomes more sensitive after the age of 30 (due to lower levels of estrogen) and hence easier to experience its orgasm. Either way, half the joy is in the process of finding it (wink).
