What Is The G-Spot?

Sarah Riccio

Chances are you've heard about the G-spot, that pleasure-packed zone inside the vagina that can result in ultra-powerful orgasms. But what if I told you that the G-spot is actually part of the clitoris, and isn’t one spot at all?  

In this guide, I dive into the surprising details of G-spot anatomy and discuss its key role in arousal. Plus, I present some fabulous pleasure products designed specifically for G-spot stimulation. 

What Is The G-Spot?

The G-spot is part of the internal clitoral network, which is the larger clitoral structure hidden inside the body. This internal structure is shaped like a wishbone, with two internal arms that flare down and away from the head of the clitoris. The entire network contains an abundance of erectile tissue, which can swell, expand, and produce natural lubrication when stimulated.

Where Is The G-Spot?

Formally known as the Grafenberg spot, the G-spot is somewhat spongey in texture, and typically located about 2 inches inside the vagina on the front wall.

When stimulated, the G-spot ignites internal erectile tissue and can become more sensitive. Massaging, vibrating, and otherwise stimulating this area can result in intense pleasure, and even orgasm.

How Do You Stimulate the G-Spot?

The G-spot can be stimulated with a penis, fingers, dildo, or any body-safe product that can reach it. Because it’s typically positioned about 2 inches inside the vagina, anything that length or longer can likely reach the G-spot.

That said, there are certain tried and true techniques that tend to work particularly well for G-spot stimulation. A come hither motion with a curved sex toy or pair of fingers can feel extra pleasurable against the G-spot, which is why so many products designed for G-spot stimulation have a curved shape.

Some women and G-spot owners can achieve orgasm from internal stimulation alone, while others need external clitoral pleasure to climax. The important thing to remember is that the G-spot and clitoris are part of one united network, and what’s done to one directly affects the other. 

What Does Stimulating the G-Spot Feel Like?

The sensation of G-spot stimulation is different from clitoral stimulation. The G-spot covers a larger area than the external part of the clitoris, so the sensation is typically more diffuse, with a less focused, pinpoint feel. G-spot stimulation is variably described as:

  • Deep
  • Intense
  • Widespread
  • Pleasurable pressure
  • Similar to the need to urinate

A G-spot orgasm, which may also be called a vaginal orgasm, can feel similar to a clitoral orgasm or entirely different, depending on your unique sexual responses and what kind of stimulation feels good to you.

Best Sex Positions For G-Spot Stimulation 

Certain positions make it easier to stimulate the G-spot with a penis, dildo, or fingers. These positions help place the G-spot at the right angle for direct stimulation. Some positions will be more comfortable or effective for some of us than others, but here are a few of our favorites:  

On top, aka Cowgirl

To try the cowgirl, ask your partner to lie on their back and straddle them. This position allows you to move and bend at will, and makes it easier to stimulate the G-spot with the head of the penis or dildo.

Instead of moving up and down, slide back and forth, or grind against your partner for maximum pressure against your G-spot. 

From behind, aka doggy style

Whether on your hands and knees or standing, the doggy style position can put the penis or dildo on a pleasurable collision course with the G-spot.

If you're on all fours, experiment with the height of your hips to see what feels best, or lie flat with your legs together or apart. Communicate with your partner to let them know which movement or angle is most stimulating and, if comfort or mobility is an issue, try a pillow to help support your body.
