There are so many myths and “urban legends” that surround sexuality, and many of them exist because of a lack of understanding about sexual anatomy and sexual arousal.  As time progresses and technologies become more advanced, more studies are conducted that help to debunk many of these sexual myths and bring the truth to light. One of the most mystified topics is the existence of the pleasure center said to bring on powerful orgasms and ultimate pleasure, better known as a woman’s G-spot.

It wasn’t until recent decades that the G-spot was discovered by scientists through the study of female sexual anatomy. Ever since its discovery, many tests have been conducted to determine its function, its biological makeup, and how a group of collective tissues are able to give women sensations that are downright euphoric.

The G-spot is pretty famous, yet many are unaware of what it looks like, what it feels like and how to find it without feeling lost. It’s time to become enlightened about this pleasure center that’s captivated scientists, sex educators and consumers alike. Let’s learn all there is to know about the G-spot, why it’s important, and how finding it can bring great enhancement to one’s sex life.

What is the G-spot?

The G-spot is an erogenous zone within the vagina made up of several nerve endings. The reason why this area of sensitivity is so mystified is because of the inconclusive research that surfaced during testing and data research from scientists and medical professionals.

The G-spot has been studied since the 1940s, and was discovered by Dr. Ernst Gräfenberg. Some scientists and doctors believe that every woman possesses a G-spot; others believe it’s something determined by personal anatomical makeup; still others believe it’s a roaming nomad within the vagina that doesn’t have a distinct place.

No matter what theory professionals may have, the G-spot has become a most coveted area of arousal that many seek out like the holy grail.

Where is it located?

The G-spot is typically reported to be located one to three inches up the front (anterior) vaginal wall between the vaginal opening and the urethra. It’s also been linked to being part of the female prostate gland. This area within the vagina is a spongy patch consisting of hundreds of nerve endings that can create orgasm powerful orgasms even stronger than those brought on by direct clitoral stimulation. Stimulating the G-spot can also cause female ejaculation to occur, (more commonly known as “squirting”).

When this area is massaged—or when pressure is applied to it—arousal occurs, leaving a woman to feel a sense of euphoria and ecstasy. Many women have a difficult time reaching orgasm, and it’s been proven that accessing the G-spot and stimulating it will help to speed up that process.

How does one access it?

Finding the G-spot is all about angles, and these angles can be achieved by using fingers, sex positions or sex toys. The key to hitting the G-spot is hitting the front wall of the vagina, and typically an upward curve works for hitting the spot dead on. G-spot vibrators have an upward curve at the end, and are intended to hit the G-spot while sending it pulsating vibrations for increased stimulation.

Inserting the finger into the vagina three inches of the way and curling the finger back towards oneself in a “come hither” motion massages the G-spot and produces pleasure.  This spot may feel like a walnut or a hard knot. By massaging in a small circular motion with the fingers, orgasms can be reached.

Sex positions great for G-spot stimulation include doggystyle, side penetration, and any version of cowgirl position. Missionary positions make G-spot stimulation difficult unless the pelvis is angled properly upwards.

So there you have it: all you need to know about the G-spot. One thing to remember is that every woman is different, so anatomical makeup will vary for each lady seeking to find her G-spot. It’ll take some experimenting with angles and positions to find the right one for accessing this pleasure zone, but experimentation is the fun part of sex.

If one never finds the G-spot, there’s no need to worry. A woman who can’t access her G-spot is completely healthy and still able to experience orgasm without it. But relaxation and being in the moment are always the key factors to experiencing pure ecstasy.
