Where is my G-spot?

Dear Dr. Patti:

I have a monogamous relationship with my fiancé. We share a very exciting and fulfilling sex life. My question is, what exactly is the G-spot that people talk about? And where is it supposed to be on a woman's body? Perhaps he has already found it, but I don't know what or where it is. Can you help me? --Z


Dear Z:

Lucky you for having such a great relationship. And good for you for finding Mr. Right and vowing sexual exclusivity with him. You deserve to have all that the wonders of sex can give ... including the quest for the G-spot and the rewards of finding it!

Although not all experts in the field of sexology agree that this area exists in a woman's body, I thoroughly believe it is there and can be stimulated as a component for supreme pleasure. It is often identified as the urethral sponge -- a soft area that is palpable, just about a third of the way up on the front wall of the vagina and best located when a woman is aroused. It pulses slightly when touched with a finger, and rubbing on the area can produce glorious sensations and eventually a feeling of orgasmic release.

In my clinical practice, women have reported that they have experienced a significantly different kind of orgasm or release with intense manual, penile or dildo penetration and stimulation of their G-spot. I prefer to think of it as a region, not a spot. Some women actually release a liquid when they reach their climax, which is known as female ejaculation. Serious sexual research suggests that many women have this capability. Your partner may need to be guided to locate and manipulate this area to your satisfaction. Exploring this possibility will add fun and new pleasuring options for you and your honey. So go for it!
