If you’ve ever happened upon a magazine article (whether a paperback or an online one), you’ve probably read a bit about the female G-spot. It’s been all the rage for the past several decades. In fact, after making it’s big debut back in ‘82, the G-spot has been on everyone’s mind. It promises mind-blowing pleasure, and people often describe it as the secret key to the vaginal orgasm.
Of course, there’s also the other side of the coin. You’ve probably read that it doesn’t exist as well. Many magazines, sexologists, experts, and the rest of the naysayers have claimed that the entire G-spot and the surrounding sensitive areas are nothing more than a myth.
Well, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. The G-spot is a highly scientifically researched area. Named after the now-famous Dr. Ernst Grafenberg, the elusive spot isn’t so much of a spot as it is an area. Due to the different anatomy of the vaginal wall in each woman, we can’t precisely pinpoint the G-Spot as we would something else.
To paint a picture, the G-spot isn’t like the eye. You know where an eye should be, where to search for it and expect it. The G-spot is a bit more ambiguous.
Myth #1 — The G-Spot Doesn’t Exist
Here’s the thing — the G-spot anatomy may be elusive and slippery, but that doesn’t deny the existence of the G-spot. This myth has been perpetuated by men and women (mostly men, let’s be honest) who can’t find the G-spot. Atta boy — when you can’t do something, just declare it non-existent!
All jokes aside, there’s quite a bit of controversy surrounding the G-Spot. In fact, even the scientific community has several different opinions on the very existence of the G-spot. In ‘82 Ernst Gräfenberg and his crew declared a small bean they found the G-spot and proclaimed that it’s a pleasure spot.
What they didn’t say, however, is that every woman has one. They also didn’t say that the anatomy of the G-spot is the same in every woman.
Almost exactly 40 years later, one medical study proclaimed that the G-spot isn’t so much of a spot as it is a sack. This particular study started an avalanche of other studies. All of them had something different to say. Some even defined G-spot as a urethral sponge, while others claimed it’s a “moving pleasurable area.” We cannot deny the fact that many men and women have testified that they have found this pleasure spot location during sex multiple times. Lucky!
Myth #2 — G-Spot Orgasms Are the Same as Regular Ones
The testimonies of women all over the world who claim that they experienced immense pleasure (or sometimes just “a different type of pleasure”) while stimulating the area where the G-spot traditionally should be, tell a much different story than the studies.
A common myth is that the majority of women can’t find their G-spot. However, a lot of women have reported that they hit the jackpot by accident once or twice. The ones that did describe the vaginal orgasm as an utterly separate sensation than the one they get from clitoral stimulation.
Considering that the clitoral network is much bigger and broader than we thought, it’s entirely possible that what we know as the G-spot is a part of it. In a cluster of nerve endings and interconnected tissues in the clitoral network and the vagina, what we know as the G-spot is probably just a little wheel in a much bigger mechanism.
However, that still doesn’t equate the vaginal and clitoral orgasms. Stimulating the G-spot means stimulating both the clitoral bulb and the pelvis nerves, which provides a double whammy of sensations. There’s a good reason women are bending over backward with their G-spot vibrator.
Myth #3 — The G-Spot Is an Organ
The G-spot most certainly isn’t an organ. Many have tried to claim that it’s either a gland or an organ. However, the truth is that the G-spot is nothing more than an array of nerve endings. Some women will find it on the outer wall of the vagina, while others will find it a bit to the left or right (up, down, you get the point).
The G-spot is an erogenous zone. It’s capable of providing women the wildest orgasm ever (which is glorious), but that doesn’t warrant classification in the organ category.
Myth #4 — There’s More Than One G-Spot
Now, because the G-spot doesn’t have an exact location, many women tend to associate any type of pleasant sensation down there with it. That often brings them to the conclusion that they have multiple G-spots or that their G-spot can “walk.”
The truth is that, depending on the type and intensity of stimulation and general level of arousal, sometimes we can stimulate the G-spot in different ways. This leads us to believe it moved or that there’s more than one.
Myth #5 — An Unwinnable Game — No One Can Locate the G-Spot
We’ve already mentioned this a while back, but it is pure bull. The only ones who couldn’t find the G-spot are the ones who quit before the adventure was over.
Listen, it’s not like it’s such a hardship. Searching for G-spot is a fun, pleasurable, and exciting adventure, even if you don’t find it on the first try! Whether you’re doing it alone or trusting your partner’s steady hands to find it for you, G-spot might be elusive, but it’s not non-existent. With a bit of prep and a solid plan, you’ll find it in no time.
Myth #6 — The G-Spot Orgasm Is the Ultimate Orgasm
Now, this is a myth solely because pleasure is a subjective thing. How do you describe your orgasms? To other women — probably relatively easily. But to men? With great difficulty. It’s hard to describe a sensation when the other person never felt anything like it. What’s more, it’s even harder to quantify it.
So how can we measure orgasms and compare different types when it comes to quality and quantity? We simply can’t. That’s why it’s absurd to say that the G-spot orgasm is the best one. That might be true for some women. However, others would wildly disagree.
Myth #7 — You Can Only Stimulate the G-Spot Through Penetration
You heard it here first folks — the standard in-and-out stimulation has got nothing on grinding. If you’re on the hunt for that elusive vaginal orgasm, you probably won’t find it in the bosom of regular penetrative sex that relies on thrusting.
On the other hand, grinding, whether with fingers or a toy (especially if the toy also vibrates), can help you achieve orgasms of your dreams! Now, there is your chance to give the thought of masturbation another shot!
A Few Parting Words
Here’s the thing, as long as you find the type of stimulation that you like and that brings you pleasure, it doesn’t really matter where the G-spot is. In fact, you’ve already found it. It might not be as mind-blowing or life-changing as you imagined, but we’re sure that it will still leave you weak in the knees.
