What is the G-spot?
The G-spot refers to a super-sensitive area inside the vagina that, when stimulated correctly, can produce what is known as a ‘G-spot orgasm’. For years this ultra-responsive area was believed to be an inexplicable collection of nerve endings inside the vagina (some even doubted its existence altogether!) but nowadays, thanks to research, it is more commonly understood to be the internal anatomy of the clitoris. No matter its origins or anatomical lineage, people with a clitoris can achieve great pleasure and even orgasm when this area is stimulated in the right way.
Where is it?
The G-spot is located around 2-3 inches inside the vagina on the anterior (front) wall.
How to find the G-spot
I recommend exploring the G-spot during solo play first. More than a form of self-care, masturbation is a meditative experience that allows you to explore and experiment freely without thinking about someone else's pleasure. Once you’re familiar with your body you’ll find it much easier to explain to a partner what you like, as well as be empowered to enhance your pleasure during paired sex through additional stimulation.
During solo play, there are two main ways in which you can begin to explore G-spot pleasure: with fingers or with toys.
Using just your fingers is a great way to explore at first because you get the benefit of feeling with your internal anatomy as well as your fingertips. Laying on your back with a pillow under your bum, or sitting in a comfy chair with your legs open and one bent up, lubricate and insert one or two fingers with your palm facing towards you. Lubrication helps enhance glide and sensation, and can also help you relax and focus entirely on the sensations at hand.
Experiment with which fingers are the best and easiest to use. Some people like to use their pointer and middle finger, others find it easier with their middle and ring fingers, leaving their pointer and baby fingers resting externally. With your fingers inserted, begin moving them in a ‘come hither’ motion, stroking the front wall in different areas until you find one which feels more sensitive than the rest.
Top tip: Pay attention to any changes in texture inside your vagina as you explore. Not only does this familiarise you with your internal anatomy, but these ‘textural landmarks’ can be super-helpful when directing a partner.
Keep stimulating this area, experimenting with different strokes, speeds and pressures to find what you like best. If your other hand is available, try stimulating your clitoris at the same time to see how that changes sensation.
Sex toys are another great way to discover G-spot pleasure and, in particular G-spot orgasm. G-spot toys are designed specifically to help make G-spot massage easy and tend to feature a curved shaft to direct the tip of the toy towards the G-spot (instead of the back of the vagina) and a bulbous tip with a large surface area to maximise G-spot stimulation and pleasure.
A curved G-spot toy can be enjoyed in almost any position, as long as it’s inserted with the tip facing the front wall of the vagina. For a foolproof fondle, try using a G-spot vibrator whilst laying on your back with a pillow under your bum. Insert the toy until you notice the tip is on your G-spot, turn it on and explore the settings until you find one which makes your legs shake.
The So Divine G-spot Vibrator is perfect for this kind of play. With its bulbous textured tip and curved angle, it makes a beeline for your sweet spots, while the oversized button and navigational notch make operation a doddle.
Vibrators not your thing? Or maybe you want something which feels more akin to penetrative sex? Try a suction cup dildo.
A suction cup dildo, no matter its shape, is perfect for exploring G-spot massage when inserted from behind. Suction cup dildos stick to any smooth surface but for this, I recommend a vertical surface like a tiled wall. Sticking your dildo to a wall enables you to try penetration from behind on your own (without twisting yourself like a pretzel). A lot of people with a clitoris say that their favourite heterosexual sex position is from behind (aka doggy), and this is because penetration from this angle tends to result in better contact with the G-spot.
To try it for yourself, stick your dildo to a vertical, smooth, hard surface and lubricate the toy and yourself. If you’re in the shower or bath, be extra careful not to get any lube on the floor. Gently insert the tip of the toy and push yourself onto it as far as feels good. Experiment with different depths of penetration, try bouncing back and forth, rotating your hips and adjust the way you stand to explore different angles and sensations. For example, standing upright with your back against the wall whilst gently rocking your hips should direct the tip of the dildo right to your G-spot.
The So Divine Glorious Suction Cup Dildo is not just great for this kind of play, it was made for it! With its super-strong suction cup base that holds fast to any smooth surface and a firm-yet-squishy dual-density shaft that feels a helluva lot like the real deal during play, it’s the perfect choice for hands-free G-spot masturbation.
