O-M-G-Spot: What’s the Deal with G-Spot Orgasms?

Named for German gynecologist Ernsy Gräfenberg, the mere existence of the G-spot is the subject of some speculation, but we’re not here to debate. Nay, we’re skipping right to the climax – the G-spot orgasm.

The Big G

Female orgasms have a whole host of physical and mental benefits, and are pretty darn fascinating. But just as no two women are the same, no two orgasms are alike either. G-spot orgasms are heralded as the sexual equivalent of an Olympic gold medal; more powerful and intense than clitoral orgasms.

Achieving this sexual goal is all about exploring your body and what feels good to you.

Unlike their clitoral counterparts, G-spot orgasms occur through internal stimulation. The G “spot” is in fact is an area –  approximately the size of an American nickel (about 2 cm in diameter) located 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7 cm) inside the vagina on the anterior – frontal – wall from the vaginal opening. It should feel slightly rougher than the rest of the vaginal canal.

A G-spot orgasm will feel a little different for everyone, but it’s usually described as having a slower build and being less intense than a clitoral orgasm, but lasting longer.

Getting There

Even if you’re not able to reach orgasm during partnered sex from penetration alone, that doesn’t mean a G-spot spot orgasm is beyond your reach. Because our bodies are all different – as are those of our partners – it’s possible you won’t be able to stimulate it exactly the right way during penetrative sex.

The method that most people find successful is direct contact of pointer and middle fingers to the G-spot, either with an upward alternating pressure or with a ‘come-hither’ motion if you have someone assisting you with this climactic endeavour.

To make things a little easier, however, we recommend using a massager specifically designed for G-spot stimulation like Celesse. It’s subtly curved body and focused tip make it the perfect tool for the job- not to mention that it doesn’t get tired in the way that your partner’s hands might!

The other benefit to using a G-spot massager like Celesse to explore your orgasm potential is that it allows you to better figure out exactly what pressure and motion will work for you, while also removing some of the ‘performance anxiety’ you may have if a partner is present.

When holding Celesse,  angle your wrist downward so the head pushes against the ‘roof’ your vagina until it hits your G-spot (this is where first locating it with your fingers can help).  You can try applying steady pressure or ‘rocking’ the massager like a seesaw to alternate it; this will likely be more pleasurable than an in and out motion, but try that too!

Better Together: Blended Orgasms

It’s possible that however pleasurable G-spot stimulation is, it may not bring you to climax – and that’s okay!  Some women struggle to have an orgasm at all, and only 30% of women can reach orgasm from penetration alone, so it’s no big deal if you require a little external attention!

Besides, sexual satisfaction is so much more about the journey than the destination, but if you find yourself getting frustrated, you can always discover the delight that is the blended orgasm.

A blended orgasm is simply an orgasm that is brought on by stimulating more than one erogenous zone of the body at once. It’s more common iteration is when you stimulate both the clitoris and G-spot at once  – hence why rabbit-style vibrators are so popular – but you can also just use your hand or another small external vibe to take your pleasure over the top!

Happy hunting, and remember: G marks the spot!
