If studies seem to question the reality of the G-spot and even speak of modern gynecological myth (source 1), others, on the contrary, maintain that this little piece of flesh plays a role in orgasm. So what is it really? Where does the gap between these two camps come from?
Definition: what is the female G-spot?
The point (or G-spot in English) is an area in the vagina called the “rough area” because of its somewhat spongy texture, or the “female prostate”, because it would be an embryological vestige. If this area seems to have been known for millennia, we have to wait until 1950 and the gynecologist Ernst Gräfenberg (to whom we owe the G. de point G) who was the first to mention its existence and attributed three main functions to it: pleasant sensations, swelling and fluid ejaculation.
Does the G spot really exist?
Yes, we are sure that this “rough zone” exists and that it is “interesting” sexually speaking, in particular because it is related to the clitoris and the para-urethral glands (we will come back to this). On the other hand, no, it does not exist as an orgasm GPS point.
“The G-spot or something… What I believe is that this area corresponds to the clitoral insertions which are on the upper parts of the vagina. So there is a link between the so-called G-spot and the clitoris, hence the notion of pleasure,” explains Céline Plard Dugas, gynecologist.
And it’s not June Pla, author of JClub, who will contradict her: “The G zone would therefore not be a point in the vagina, but rather the confluence of the pillars of the clitoris. »
We will therefore speak of zone G, as Irwin Goldstein, editor-in-chief of Sexual Medicine Reviews (source 2).
After entering the vagina
If we locate the G zone a few centimeters after the entrance to the vagina (on average 3 cm after the entrance to the vagina), and on the anterior part (upwards), the gynecologist warns: “It is difficult to locate precisely because it is quite variable according to each patient, but let’s say she’s more on the upper vagina. »
“It is located in the anterior area of the vagina, at the very beginning, and measures approximately two phalanges. What is stimulated is the confluence of the pillars and the para-urethral glands. The rough is only there to give you a point of reference, says June Pla. »
And to find it? “You have to explore your sexuality, take your time,” advises our gynecologist.
Orgasm: does the G-zone give pleasure?
Yes, the G-zone can give pleasure! Since the G-zone is in connection with the clitoris (and the clitoris, we can’t say it enough, is the master of female pleasure), it could cause pleasure, as in resonance. In any case, this is Jeanne’s opinion: “I like it when my man crochets with his fingers inside me. This causes me very deep feelings. »
The results of a small study carried out with about ten women point in this direction: a amplification of the G zone by injections of hyaluronic acid, known as G. shot, would allow women suffering from sexual disorders to have more pleasure. But beware: given the lack of hindsight, many specialists refuse to talk about these G-spot amplification techniques, and in particular Pierre Foldès (who is the first doctor to have repaired excised clitoris) (source 3) .
It’s not a “magic button”
But the G-zone is not an orgasm button at all. As Céline Plard Dugas reminds us, “not all women manage to have vaginal pleasure “. Some don’t particularly like G-spot stimulation : “Personally, I’ve never understood this craze around the G-spot. Of course, depending on the situation, it could excite me, but in the same way as if my partner had touched my buttocks, nipples or something else… For me, it is by no means a magic point to enjoy. Sometimes, stimulation in this place can bother me… A bit like when someone touches my navel… During penetration, it’s something else, it contributes to bringing different sensations, and if you want the other, you want everything! But clearly, I couldn’t cum just from G-spot stimulation.”
In short, the relation to enjoyment is very different depending on the person: “We see so many women impacted by their story. So you have to be careful: each one has its own particularities and functions,” insists Céline Plard Dugas. Eh yes ! Because the main responsible for all human enjoyment is the brain.
The G zone in women: ideal for causing a fountain?
Indeed, stimulating the anterior wall of the vagina can trigger a “squirt”, that is to say the flow of liquid produced by the para-urethral glands. Note that according to June Pla, it is more precisely a small zone located just above the rough zone which is to be favored for squirting.
G-spot stimulation: what you need to know
This area is easier to stimulate with the fingers, but it can still be stimulated with the penis or a suitable sex toy.
With the fingers
“You can stimulate it by hooking your fingers and miming the “come here” gesture”, advises June Pla, for example. Drawings and details on the Jouissance Club Instagram account.
With adapted positions
Opt for positions that go promote pressure on the G-zone. Like the Andromache, the spoon, the doggy style or the union of the lotus (The man is seated in the lotus position and the woman sits mirrored on him, so as to surround the hips of her partner with her legs. mmm)
Why is the G-spot a problem?
The G-spot is only a scam if you think of it as a miracle button that you just have to press to trigger and increase pleasure in women. But if you like it for what it is, namely an area connected to a complex network of nerve endings that can bring pleasure and facilitate fountain emission, then all is well.
If the G-spot is debated, the “female prostate” has been identified for millennia, and if this area is really not necessarily a source of pleasure for women, it seems that it can still trigger fountains. In any case, taking a closer look at women’s anatomy is a good thing.
