The G-spot is an area of the vagina which is believed to be the key to helping women achieve longer and stronger orgasms.
Women have a super sensitive-area inside the vagina on the front wall.
When it is stimulated, the mysterious pleasure zone can bring you to orgasm quicker than penetrative sex.
Some women experience an intense, deep orgasm, different to ones achieved through clitoral stimulation.
The “G” refers to Dr Ernst Gräfenberg – A German gynaecologist who is credited to have “discovered” the pleasure spot in the 1940s.
Since then it has been a hot topic among sex scientists.
“The G-spot is not a distinct entity, nor is it located inside of the vagina, it can be felt through the vagina and when stimulated, the tissue begins to swell”

What is the G-Spot?
Put in simple terms, the G-spot is a sensitive area on the front wall of the vagina that can bring an intense sense of pleasure to women.
Sexologist Dr Jess O’Reilly said: “The G-spot is not a distinct entity, nor is it located inside of the vagina, it can be felt through the vagina and when stimulated, the tissue begins to swell.
“As opposed to being a singular organ, it is believed that its sensitivity is connected to corollary stimulation of the female prostate, urethral sponge and inner clitoris.”
Where is the female G spot?
The G-spot is located two to three inches in the vagina, and should feel a small patch of ridged, knobbly tissue.
Emily Morse, host of the podcast Sex with Emily, said: “It’s about two inches inside of the vagina, on the top side of the vagina wall.”
The area is highly sensitive and will feel pleasurable when touched, some women may even achieve orgasm through it being stimulated.

How can you find it?
Finding your own G-spot before you allow others to try is the best way to discover its power.
By lying on your back you should be able to feel it with your fingers pointed towards the ceiling.
Sexpert Lou Paget said: “Rather than lying on a bed it may be easier to squat down and feel inside of yourself, but make sure you’re a bit aroused first.
“Women’s fingers can sometimes be too small or short to reach so a G-spot toy or a partner’s fingers might find it more easily.”
If you have a partner, the best thing to do is lie on your back while your partner inserts a finger with their palm facing the ceiling.
Your partner should touch the “top side” of the vaginal wall, and curling the finger in a “come hither” motion.
The motion should be almost like trying to stoke the belly button from the inside.
Dr O’Reilly recommends these tips when trying to find the mysterious G-spot:
1. Don’t stress: Everybody is different, and learning about your body and what works for you takes time
2. Use lube: Stimulating the G-spot will create friction, so using lube can ease the discomfort
3. Relax: G-spot stimulation is different to the one experienced from the clitoris. Some women may feel the need to pee, but relaxing instead of tensing is the best way to achieve an orgasm.

Does every woman have a G-spot?
Since its “discovery” in the 1940s there has been much debate whether the erogenous zone actually excists.
British researchers asked 1,800 women if they believed they had a G-spot, only 56% said yes.
However, Ms Paget said: “Yes, the G-spot exists, but every woman is different.
“For some it’s an off-the wall experience and others feel nothing. In the same way that some women have especially sensitive nipples and others don’t.”
Most experts agree that the confusion arises because there is a varying degree of sensitivity in women.
