There is a lot of confusion surrounding the G-Spot, so we decided to take an expert look at a few of the most frequently asked questions.
I heard the G-Spot doesn't exist.
Back in January 2012, the media declared that the G-Spot doesn't exist, based on a study done by scientists at King's College in London. The study in question was pretty flawed. For instance, lesbian and bisexual women were not invited to take part in the study, nor any women who hadn't had heterosexual intercourse. And - the study largely ignored the 56% of women studied who said yes, they did indeed have a G-spot.
The study doesn't prove much, except that the media will always distort results for a better headline and even scientists don't necessarily ask the right people the right questions.
I've looked and looked but never found my G-Spot - is there something wrong?
Absolutely not. Maybe you're not a G-Spot gal and that's fine, some women just don't get that thrill. But there's lots of other sexy things to try - anal play, clit play and lots of other fun activities.
What is a G-spot?
A: What we can say is that it's a sensitive area on the front wall of the vagina. No one seems to be sure of what it is biologically (and no wonder, when all the scientists are busy telling us we're making it up). It might be:
1) The female equivalent of the male prostate gland, or P-spot.
2) The back of the clitoris (which is an impressive nine inches long and wraps itself around the vagina).
3) The urethral sponge, a collection of erectile tissue around the urethra.
G-Spot Orgasms and Female Ejaculation £12.99
There are many theories because it's not something that gets studied a lot. Also, we suspect, because it's often studied by doctors who come to this with their own preconceptions and assumptions. For really good, female-focused data, we recommend The Clitoral Truth or G-spot Orgasms and Female Ejaculation.
So does the G-Spot does exist, then?
Only you can answer that. We're not here to lay down the law about women's bodies and experiences - every woman is unique and there's no 'one-size-fits-all' answer. But, for what it's worth, after 20+ years of cherry-picking (and testing) the best sex toys, and talking and listening to women, we reckon it's a good bet there is a G-spot and it can produce amazing sensations.
Here's a map on how to find the G-Spot.
Try some G-Spot friendly positions - doggy-style is very good because it allows fairly direct stimulation of the G-Spot with a penis or strap-on dildo.
If you've found your G-Spot, but it's not as thrilling as you'd like, there are G-Spot enhancers available to add a little thrill.
G-Spot Curve Ribbed Vibe £28
There are lots of very good G-spot vibrators available, like the super-cute Mini G-Spot vibrator or G-Spot Curve Ribbed vibrator - there's something to suit everyone.
If pressure works for you, rather than vibration, many rabbit-style dual stimulating vibrators have a steady rotation which can give a very nice rhythmic pressure on the G-spot.
You are the best expert on your body.
Above all, listen to your body - try what feels good to you and don't worry about what the studies say.
