How to Find The G-Spot
There’s no doubt that you’ve heard of the G-spot, but whether or not you’ve found it is another story. This often debated, even thought of as mythical area is touted as the end all, be all of the female orgasm. The G-spot is named for Dr. Ernst Grafenburg, who is credited with discovering the area during the 1950’s.
Before the G-spot, the clitoris was thought to be the sole trigger for the female orgasm. The G-spot was hurled into pop culture in the 1980’s when many books and sexologists sang its praises. When stimulated, the G-spot is said to produce a mind-blowing female orgasm including, in some cases, female ejaculation. The G-spot is a coveted place inside the vagina that both men and women have longed to locate.
What Is The G-Spot?
The G-spot is a bean-shaped area within the vagina that, when stimulated, can produce a heightened sense of sexual arousal and a most powerful orgasm. Typically, the pleasure felt when the G-spot is stimulated is much more intense than that of clitoral stimulation. The G-spot, sometimes referred to as the female prostate, is comprised of flexible tissue; it feels coarser to the touch when manipulated than the nearby tissue. This sensitive area consists of erectile tissue and therefore becomes engorged with blood when properly stimulated.[1, 2]
How Do We Know It’s Really There? Do All Women Have It?
The short answer is yes all women have a G-spot. Although this has been the topic of much debate, there are several research studies that prove that the G-spot does exist. Several studies claim to have found evidence of the G-spot. One French research team performed ultrasound scans on a small group of women as they had sex. Changes in their vaginas during intercourse led the team to discover physiological proof of the G-spot.
Other research suggests that orgasms through clitoral stimulation are closely related to those of G-spot stimulation, implying that the G-spot is a sort of continuation of the clitoris. MRI studies have also shown evidence of the G-spot and in 2011, Adam Ostrzenski, a researcher from Poland, declared he had found anatomical proof of the G-spot. Ostrzenski performed a dissection on a cadaver in order to explore the anatomical structures of the G-spot. Though he has not claimed that the G-spot would have the same effect for all women, he has said that evidence does exist of grape-like clusters comprised of erectile tissue thought to be the G-spot.
G-spot or "Grafenberg spot" is a neologism referring to an area which some women report is erotically sensitive when massaged via the anterior vaginal wall. "Urethral sponge" is another term which seems to refer to this anatomical/phenomenological reality.
Where Is It?
The G-spot, thought to be about the size of a quarter, is located approximately 1 to 3 inches inside the vagina, somewhere between the opening of the vagina and the urethra. The G-spot is inside the anterior or front wall of the vagina, meaning it is on the same side as your belly button towards your stomach. Remember, the G-spot is an area of tissue, it is not a true spot or button and it may take some time to locate. The G-spot has a rougher feel to it than the surrounding tissue and it is best stimulated with a bit of pressure rather than light strokes.
