The clitoris and the G spot

July 2017

Sexual pleasure in a woman arises from stimulation of her two sexual organs: the clitoris and the G spot.

Many women are still unaware about these parts of their body, mostly due to the taboos regarding masturbation.

The Clitoris

If you are female, the clitoris is the most sensitive out of your erogenous zones. It is situated inside the top of your labia (the vagina's lips).

The clitoris is often referred to as the female version of a man's penis but it is hidden inside your body. There are three structures within the clitoris:
  • The glans - similar to a male's foreskin and contains many nerve endings (nearly 8 - 10,000 sensitive sensors, compared to whereas includes 3,000 to 4,000 sensors present in a man's nipple.
  • The body
  • 2 crura - muscles which attach to your pelvis and produce clitoral erection when they become tense

Only 0.5 - 1 cm of the clitoris is visible, but the stem can measure up to 10 cm inside. The clitoris can become quickly aroused by touch when it fills with blood. The clitoris allows the release of a hormone in the brain called oxytocin.

G spot

The G spot is a sexual organ and erogenous zone located on the front wall of your vagina. It is a 1 cm ball of tissue located 3 - 5 cm above the opening to your vagina , between your pubic bone and womb.

Your G spot can be felt by placing 2 fingers inside your vagina and curling them in the form of a hook. When it is stimulated, it can produce an orgasm even more powerful than that caused by the clitoris. It can be ignored by the majority of men. The G spot can be stimulated when the woman puts her legs on the shoulders of her partner.

Do men have a G spot?

There is less known about the G spot in men. It is believed that a man's G spot would be located inside the rectum, close to the urethra and the prostate.

G spot enlargement

Enlargement of the G spot has now been introduced to enhance pleasure for women. This involves an injection into the G spot to cause swelling and growth, similar to lip injection. This increased zone in volume may help to give women pleasure and make it easier for them to orgasm. This treatment is not offered by all doctors and there is no reliable data from studies.

There are, of course, risks involved (for example, urethral perforation). The procedure is not available on the NHS and costs hundreds of pounds privately.

Do men know about the clitoris and G spot?

Men can easily ignore your body's pleasure zones. This is because the clitoris and G spot are often excluded during vaginal penetration.
