How to Find the G-Spot
The G-spot, or Gräfenberg Spot, is named after the German gynecologist who first “discovered” it. It’s an area of spongy erectile tissue that surrounds the urethra and can be found by inserting a finger into the vagina and curving it towards the navel. Both women and transmen have this tissue, although no one knows for sure whether all women and transmen do, and transsexual men in particular may use different anatomical terms and choose to stimulate it differently.
For some women, prolonged stimulation of the G-spot can result in orgasm, and sometimes female ejaculation. However, there are many women for whom prolonged or even minimal pressure to the G-spot can feel uncomfortable or irritating and others for whom it feels much the same as other types of vaginal stimulation. While there is no magic button on a woman’s body that will instantly produce orgasms, women who do respond positively to G-spot stimulation have described their orgasms as “full-bodied” and “mind-blowing” and definitely worth a try.
How Can I Find It?
Many people find it easier to have someone else locate their G-spot. To locate the G-spot, apply lubricant to your fingers (usually the index and middle fingers work fine) and insert them into the vagina, making a “come hither” motion so that your fingers are pressing towards her navel. If the receiving partner is on her back, curl your fingers upwards. If she’s on her stomach or hands and knees, curl your fingers down. If the vaginal opening were a clock with the clitoris at noon, the G-spot would be located between 11:00 and 1:00. The G-spot is not very long -- it only runs about 2-3 inches deep inside of the vagina.
The G-spot is usually easier to find when a woman is aroused, since this causes the spongy tissue to swell, making the G-spot area somewhat firmer than the surrounding vaginal walls. If you are having trouble locating the area with your fingers, you can try a G-spot Vibrator that is specifically designed for G-spot sensations. Since the G-spot is generally much more responsive to pressure than light touches, these toys have a pronounced curve which makes them easier to angle against or press against the G-spot. In addition, many women find that vibrators and dildos make solo G-spot stimulation much easier.
If you’re using your fingers, try the “come here” motion. Or she might like circles, pressure, or a windshield wiper motion. She may also like different sensations or different levels of intensity as her arousal builds. You can also try combining G-spot stimulation with clitoral stimulation. Try a few different things and ask her what she liked best. Or have her rate them on a scale of 1-10 to give you some information about what works for her.
When the G-spot is stimulated, some women may initially feel an urge to urinate, but this should lessen after a few seconds. If this sensation makes you nervous, try urinating prior to getting started, and lie on a towel as you begin to explore.
