You’ve most likely heard of the G spot along with how it’s the key to achieving incredible orgasms. Orgasms can help reduce stress, improve your skin and make you feel overall great. However, for many women, it’s not as simple as penetration to reach orgasm. It can come from stimulating the clitoris, playing with toys, or finding the mysterious G spot. In this article, we will answer what is a G spot as well as where is the G spot. Find all about hitting the G spot here.

What Is A G Spot?

The G spot, also known as the Gräfenberg spot, was found by Dr Beverly Whipple after she discovered that using the ‘come here motion along the inside of the vagina produced a physical reaction in women. She believed that this could be the area in which women achieve orgasms during sex. However, the G spot isn’t an individual part of the woman’s anatomy – researchers came up empty-handed when attempting to find it. It’s actually part of your clitoral network. This means that when you’re stimulating your G spot, you’re actually stimulating part of the clitoris, which is much larger than we are meant to believe. This means that the pea-sized nub where the inner labia meet is actually only the tip of the iceberg and that it actually divides into two ‘roots’ that can be about four inches long. 

This area can be difficult to locate as every woman is different. This, therefore, explains why it can often be difficult to locate. However, once it’s stimulated, the G spot can cause female ejaculation and help women reach vaginal orgasm.

Where Is The G Spot?

Finding the G spot can be difficult, especially on the map of the human body and due to the fact, that every woman’s anatomy is different. However, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. It actually is much easier to locate the G spot through self-exploration rather than partnered sexual activity.

To find your G spot, start by relaxing and exploring your body for what feels best for you. When you’re ready, begin massaging the opening of your vagina before inserting your fingers or your favourite sex toy. Using sex lube here will also help.

Next, using your fingers or your toy, lift upwards towards your belly button in a ‘come here’ motion. It’s important to remember that you’re trying to find what’s best for you rather than hitting a specific button. When you find what feels good to you, repeat the motion as the sensation builds. Instead of an in-and-out motion, you’ll want to keep focusing your attention on this area.

Preference varies from person to person, and what you may like may be completely different to someone else; there is no right or wrong way to orgasm. Not all women find satisfaction through G spot stimulation, and that’s completely fine. Masturbation is a great way to explore what you like and what helps you reach orgasm, whether that’s through G spot stimulation, clitoral stimulation, penetration, use of toys or any other sexual activity that you enjoy. By taking time to explore your own preferences, you can use that information to instruct your partner on what you enjoy most during sex.

Best Sex Positions For Hitting The G-Spot

To experience G spot stimulation during sex, it’s all about the angle and the position. Try out positions that allow you a little more control over your movements so you can figure out what types of stimulation you enjoy the most. Whilst there are so many sex positions that can help you achieve hitting the G spot, here are the top ones to try:


Have your partner lay down on their back as you climb on top and straddle them. This position allows you complete control over rhythm, depth and angle of penetration so that you can focus on finding your G spot. As well as bobbing up and down, try moving back and forth which can help with hitting the G spot region against your inner vaginal wall. Mix up with different speeds, angles and depths to find what works best for you. This position also gives your partner an incredible view!

Doggy style

Doggy style can help you achieve greater orgasms and deeper penetration during sex. It’s easy to vary the angle to hit your G spot. Start on your hands and knees with your partner behind you. During penetration, try leaning down on your forearms or pushing your hips backwards to change the angle until you find the position that works best for you. You can also try different variations by laying flat on your stomach with your legs hanging off the edge of the bed allowing your partner to stand behind and penetrate you from there.

Closed missionary

This is a variation of the classic missionary position. This position allows for greater stimulation without the depth of penetration. You start on your back in the missionary position before moving your legs together. Your partner's legs will straddle yours allowing for a tighter squeeze. This allows for hitting the G spot which could be the perfect way to achieve orgasm.

Find What Works Best For You

Sex isn’t always a quick and easy way to get satisfaction. Women are led to believe sex is shameful which can make it harder to achieve orgasm and sexual satisfaction. You shouldn’t be afraid to take charge of your sex life and find what you like, so experimentation and open mindedness is key. For most women, it can take time to find what works for them, so be patient.

The important thing is that you’re satisfied, happy and safe. You should never feel ashamed of figuring out what you like. After all, everyone deserves great sex!
