Most of us know about the G-Spot and the clitoris but the A-spot is a less well known erogenous zone. So what is the A-Spot and how do you go about exploring it’s potential?
The Anterior Fornix Erogenous Zone, aka the A-spot, is located deep inside the vagina on the anterior vaginal wall above the cervix. Feel for a patch of spongy tissue about two inches up from the G-spot. When touched the A-spot produces an immediate increase in natural wetness.
The A-spot is described technically as the ‘female degenerated prostate’ – the female equivalent of the male prostate, just as the clitoris is the female equivalent of the male penis. (Not very sexy – we like to just think of it as another pleasure zone).
It’s difficult to reach the A-spot on your own, so having a dexterous partner or a long sex toy handy helps greatly. Try light, gentle strokes and go slow whilst discovering what you like. Again, adding lube will make play more sensual and comfortable. We have it on good authority that adopting a sitting position with your legs pulled up against your body before inserting a finger or toy works well.
Direct stimulation of the A-spot spot can produce strong orgasms which feel very similar to G-spot orgasms (giving energy rather than sapping it like a clitoral orgasm tends to do).
Dr. Chua Chee Ann, known as the ‘A-spot Pioner’ after having publicised his findings on the A-spot, claims that stimulating the A-spot for 10 minutes each day can lead to increased lubrication and easier orgasms; we’re not sure that this is 100% accurate, but you’ll have fun trying it!
