The G-Spot is an area found in both men and women and is supposed to be the key to stronger and longer orgasms.
Women are not the only ones with a powerful G-spot – although it is perhaps more well known.
The G-Spot has earned its name from the pioneering sexologist Ernst Gräfenberg. He was credited to have “discovered” the pleasure spot in the 1940s.
Some men may already be aware of this erogenous zone, but others have no idea.
With the day of love upon us, you might want to experiment with finding it tonight. Here is everything you need to know about the elusive G-spot.
“It really can open up a whole new avenue of pleasure for men if they are willing to try it”
Dr Susan Milstein – Sex educator and professor
What is the G-Spot?
The male G-Spot is actually what is commonly referred to as the prostate gland.
Dr Susan Milstein, a sex educator and professor in the Department of Health Enhancement, Exercise Science and Physical Education at Montgomery College, said: “It really can open up a whole new avenue of pleasure for men if they are willing to try it.”
This is because the prostate itself contains many nerve endings – in fact it has almost as many as the clitoris, according to Dr Milstein.
The prostate is not just there to secrete prostate fluid – but can also bring men a lot of pleasure.
MALE G-SPOT: The G-spot is also known as the prostate
Where is the male G-Spot?
The prostate is often referred to as the male G-spot. This area can be found at the neck of the bladder, inside the anus.
The prostate gland is a lump of tissue that is capable of bringing pleasure to a man.
Often referred to as the size of a walnut, the G-Spot can be found around two or three inches inside the rectum.
Much like the female G-spot, it is located toward the belly, but more specifically under the bladder.
How can you find it?
There are two ways to stimulate the male G-spot – from the outside and the inside.
If you want to stimulate your partner’s G-spot from the inside you should get him to lie back in a comfortable position.
Fingers should be cleaned and nails should be trimmed to avoid any discomfort.
You should be able to find the walnut-shaped bump with the soft pad of your fingers a couple of inches in.
But perhaps the easiest way to find the pleasure spot is from the outside.
To do this, you or your partner should gently press on the skin between the balls and the anus – known as the perineum.
Dr Ian Kerner, author of Sex Detox, said: “Stimulating these spots not only feels terrific for a man, but it also builds sexual tension throughout his entire body and increases blood flow to his genitals.
“This boosts his arousal and intensifies his pelvic contractions, magnifying his orgasm tenfold.
“His prostate is situated above your fingers, inside his body.
“So by applying pressure here, you’re directly rubbing his G-spot.”
