Ah, the G-spot. Perhaps one of the most controversial debates of our modern-day sex lives. Some swear by its creation of the most mind-blowing orgasms known to woman. Others are left frustrated by the truth of its existence while contemplating the engagement of a search party to locate it.
Begs the questions, does the G-spot exist? Is the G-spot responsible for female ejaculation? And, if so, where do you find the G-spot? If the mysterious pleasure centre holds up to its legendary reputation, we’re sure you all want in, so let’s move quickly and reveal some truth.
For those out of the loop, what is the G-spot?
It all began in 1950 when Jewish German physician and scientist, Ernst Grafenberg, discovered a distinct erotic zone on the anterior wall of the vagina which he coined the Grafenberg spot. If you’ve already done the maths and subtracted a couple of letters, that’s the G-spot.
Said to cause swelling and intense orgasm sans clitoris stimulation, the discovery of the G-spot gifted men with a universal performance metric when it came to pleasuring their lady lovers in the bedroom. But, while some women reported experiences of earth-shattering joy, others had no option but to claim naysayer status due to their inability to locate the elusive spot.
Where is the alleged G-spot?
According to the Grafenberg Positioning System (GPS), the G-spot supposedly lies about an inch inside the vaginal opening on the upper vaginal wall, close to the bellybutton. To find your G-spot, it’s suggested that you lie down on your back, insert your finger into your vagina and make a ‘come-hither’ motion towards your bellybutton. Feel for a small, sponge-like substance. At first touch, you may feel a need to pee, yet with momentary persistence that feeling will pass and you should find yourself on the highway to pleasure-land.
And by ‘pleasure-land’, do you mean female ejaculation?
The G-spot and female ejaculation have undergone extensive studies over the last 50-years. Despite there being scientific evidence of their existence, this evidence has been challenged and both the G-spot and female ejaculation remain a controversial phenomenon.
At the end of the day, many women swear by the G-spot’s ability to trigger female ejaculation, and who are we to argue with their method of sexual pleasure? If it works, it works. Keep doing what you’re doing, ladies!
So, if not every woman can find it, does the G-spot exist or is it a gynaecological myth?
Here’s where things turn slightly technical. The review that calls BS on the G-spot’s existence only focuses on one specific spot. Yet, a lot of literature says the supposed G-spot is activated via pressure on the vagina’s anterior wall and other sensitive structures, including the urethra, clitoris and Skene’s gland (aka the female prostate). So, the G-spot isn’t a singular structure. It’s a realm of several genitally sensitive organs and thus should be called the G-zone or G-area.
Yas! The G-zone does exist, but what if you still can’t find it?
Not all bodies are created equally and that’s totally okay. If you’re struggling to find your G-zone with your fingers, don’t go it alone. Try a G-spot vibrator, perfectly designed to deliver full-blown orgasms. Or, grab your lover and get busy in the bedroom with sex positions that are known for increasing your odds for a G-spot orgasm. Think; those positions that give you more control over your movements (get on top, babe) or allow for deeper penetration (doggy style). You can thank us later.
