The G-spot is a mysterious little thing. Does it really exist? Where exactly is it and what does it look like?
Can multiple orgasms occur? Can you ejaculate? Or is that just an invention of the porn industry? And the most important question: how is it best stimulated?
Does the G-spot Actually Exist?
Opinions are still divided on this question. Even doctors and gynecologists still doubt the existence of this elusive spot. They even refuse to acknowledge the G-spot medically.
As uncertain as science may be, countless women are certain: the G-Spot exists and has an incredible potential for pleasure! So, we say - to hell with science!
Rather than stick to science, we recommend exploring your own body to see what feels good and what doesn't. But, let's dive deeper into what the G-spot is - and how you can find it.
Every Woman has One!
While some people believe not every woman has one, the G-spot does exist - it's just different for each woman. Some women are particularly sensitive in this area, while others hardly get any pleasure from G-spot stimulation.
It is also quite possible that you have not discovered your G-spot yet. Either because you don't want to or because it's not so easy to find in a non-excited state. Only when you are super excited and more blood flows into that area does the tissue swell and become easy to feel.
Why is the G-spot Called a G-spot?
While he was certainly not the first to discover the G-spot, he was the first to mention it in a medical essay: the German doctor Ernst Gräfenberg.
The G-spot is named after him, which he described in a 1950 essay as an "erogenous zone in the front vaginal wall, along the urethra, which swells during sexual stimulation".
So we can thank Mr. Gräfenberg for discussing this pleasure point so intensively today.
Where is the G-spot?
Before we address the question of what the G-spot is, let's try and locate it first. Keep in mind the exact location can vary from woman to woman but typically, the G-spot is located about two inches from the vaginal entrance on the upper side towards the abdominal wall. It is not completely in the middle, but rather slightly to the left from the person’s point of view.
It stands out from the surrounding tissue due to its slightly ribbed surface and is relatively easy to feel.
Finding the G-spot
The easiest time to find the G-spot is when you are already in the mood. When you're in the mood, that area swells and the ribbed structures come out more clearly, becoming more sensitive to touch. You will quickly notice if the right point is hit or not based on the touch. In a "dry" state, however, it can be difficult to feel this point.
Strictly speaking, it is not really a single point, but rather a whole zone or area that is particularly sensitive to stimulation. So, don't necessarily apply pressure to just one spot, but rather circle around a bit until you find the spot that feels best.
What is the G-spot?
To understand the G-spot, let's take a closer look at the female anatomy.
If we look at the vagina from the front, the clitoris is at the top with the clitoral hood, the clitoral erectile tissue and the clitoral thighs running down in a V-shape under the skin. In addition, the nerve endings of the clitoris run further inside the body.
Below the clitoris and above the vaginal entrance lies the urethral opening. From this opening, the urethra leads to the bladder. Below this opening is the vaginal opening with the vaginal canal and the Bartholinian glands, which are responsible for the production of vaginal secretion.
Directly after the exit, the urethra is surrounded by the "urethral sponge" - an erectile tissue which, when excited, can resemble a “sponge”.
Blood then begins to fill and swell. And it is this tissue that you can feel as the G-spot - about two inches above the vagina's entrance.
Within this erectile tissue lie the paraurethral glands, also called Skene glands, which are connected to the end of the urethra via the paraurethral ducts. The canals of two larger specimens end directly to the left and right of the urethral outlet.
These glands are commonly referred to as the female prostate because, like the male prostate, they produce fluid. Fun fact, this is the fluid that shoots out through the urethra during "squirting" or "female ejaculation".
The G-spot consists of erectile tissue, which is filled with nerves and glands. At the same time, this tissue is closely connected to the cords and extensions of the clitoris, which is where mutual stimulation can occur.
What Does the G-spot Do Anyway?
If we restrict ourselves to the purely biological function when using it: the G-spot doesn’t do anything! Just as we have no scientific explanation for the female orgasm, we have no idea why the G-spot exists.
But, we no longer have sex only for reproductive purposes - hello, it's fun! The G-spot can be one of the greatest sources of pleasure besides the clitoris (even though this varies from woman to woman - some women feel a lot from the G-spot while others do not). Fortunately, however, there are plenty of other spots that want some extra love.
The great thing about the G-spot - and other spots - is that it can all trigger different feelings and types of orgasms. A clitoral orgasm, for example, can sometimes feel superficial. But a G-spot orgasm can feel deeper and more intense - often leading to multiple orgasms and female ejaculation.
So to answer the question "What does the G-Spot Do?" - it provides ALL the fun.
The G-spot and Female Ejaculation
Along with the G-spot, female ejaculation - also known as squirting - is a controversial topic. For quite some time, it was unclear (and for some people is still unclear) what and where the liquid comes from.
The fluid is produced by the already described Skene glands and released through the urethra. Many people believe the liquid is urine, but it's not.
The composition of the fluid or secretion is very similar to what is produced in the male prostate. It contains various prostate-specific antigens, glucose, and creatine. Urine can be a component of the ejaculation fluid, though, as the fluid flows out through the urethra.
How to Stimulate the G-Spot
Now onto the fun part: How do I best stimulate the G-Spot?
There are many ways to stimulate this little spot of happiness. The fingers can be used (check out this article here) or specially shaped sex toys - such as the OhMyG by ioba toys. The OhMyG is a unique G-spot massager. Thanks to its C-shape, three pulse settings, and pearl at the top of the toy, it is specifically designed to stimulate the G-spot. Not only that - the OhMyG is completely silent! It’s perfect for women with children, roommates, or couples looking to spice things up in the bedroom.
