It was in 1950 when Ernst Grafenberg, a German gynecologist, first made reference to a specific erotic zone within the upper area of the vaginal wall. Ever since then, there has been lots of controversy and scientific debate about if it really does exist and if the G spot is actually real.
It is true that large numbers of women lay claim to experiencing large amounts of pleasure by having this particular zone within their vagina stimulated in the right way. However, there are also many women that claim the exact opposite is true for them and that no matter how hard they try, they are unable to locate their G spot. It is clear to see then from this why so much mystery surrounds this subject.
By finding the elusive G spot, it can provide some women with an immense amount of pleasure, whilst also giving couples the chance to partake in a fun sexual location finding challenge. This of course though does not mean that for those women who are unable to locate their G spot they cannot still have fun with either themselves or their partner.
What Exactly Is The G Spot?
Its actual name is the Grafenberg spot, G spot for short, and is an erogenous area that is located within the vagina. It is a part of the vagina that is particularly sensitive to being sexually stimulated.
When this area is stimulated in just the right way, it causes women to get very wet through the production of excessive lubrication. In some instances, it can even make some women ejaculate or squirt. In addition to this, it is also responsible for producing highly intense orgasms or for allowing women who would not normally orgams through vagina intercourse to do so.
The exact response that a woman can expect to receive from having her G spot stimulated is not a given and it varies greatly from person to person. In fact, some women cannot find this erogenous area at all and do not actually believe that it exists. Some women can actually find having their G spot stimulated as an unpleasant or even a painful experience.
Where Is The G Spot Located?
Whilst different women report having different responses to having their G spot stimulated, what is consistent amongst all of them is that they claim to have the strongest sensation at the top of the inner part of their vaginal wall.
Roughly this area is located two to three centimeters (0.7 – 1 inches) on the inside of the vagina. When touched, the area itself should feel somewhat bumpy. Because of its close location to the bladder, some women claim that they feel the need to go pee when their G spot is touched. Because of this, it can be beneficial to go and empty the bladder before attempting to stimulate the area.
When it comes to finding the G spot, it does take some practice. However, in order to help with the process, you should follow these steps.
- Use a sex toy that has been specifially designed for G spot stimulation. These are usually curved in shape. You can find out more about these and which one to buy at Get Frisky.
- Mix up the sexual positions that you are using in order to find one that hits in just the right spot.
- Apply different amounts of pressure to the area. Try going soft, as well as hard. Also try different motions, such as stroking and vibrating.
- Talk to your partner throughout the process to establish what is and what is not working for them.
- Do some trial and error by trying a number of different areas on the inside of the vaginal wall until you reach that sweet spot.
The Latest Research
Even though the G spot was discovered over 70 years ago now, there is still no consistent or conclusive data that exists to show that there is such an erogenous zone in the vagina. However, it is important to point out that many of the studies and research that has been performed on this subject have been done by men. They often claim that women are being confused and misinterpreting the sexual experiences that they have had.
For instance, a large analysis in 2012 looked at all of the scientific literature that was out there on the G Spot and failed to find any consistently on if or where the G spot is located. It concluded that whilst many women believe that there is such as an area, the science fails to prove this idea.
Again, a study that was carried out in 2010 and surveyed more than 1,800 women found that only 56 percent of them had claimed to have ever found their G spot. From this, the authors of the study interpreted what they found to point to there being no basis for the existence of a G spot. However, to do this, they must therefore have completely disregarded the experiences and opinions of 44 percent of the participants in the study.
The Journal of Sexual Medicine published an article back in 2010 that looked at the highly conflicting opinions of some of the top experts within the field. One of them claimed that the exact location of the G spot actually varies from woman to woman, which is why some of them struggle to find it. That being said, some other experts did claim that it simply does not exist.
It is clear to see that from what research has been done, there is very little conclusive evidence that points to an exact location of the G spot. The reasoning for this may be a simple one in that it is hard to find and can be in different locations, or that it does not exist at all.
However, due to the mainly anecdotal claims made by both women and their partners, it is hard to completely dismiss what they say about the presence of the G spot.
