Our G-Spot and squirting some of our most popular seminars that we run here at The Art of Loving; with 2 – 3 sessions and a mix of live demo and discussion based workshops filling up every month, the thirst for knowledge on the illusive G-Spot runs high in the city of Vancouver. But what actually is the G-Spot? And what is all the fuss about?

The G-Spot was “discovered” by German gynecologist Ernst Grafenberg (officially, of course; I’m sure women had had this spot figured out loooooooooooong before he went on naming female pleasure zones after himself) in 1981. The G-Spot is defined as an erogenous  area located around 2 – 3 inches inside the vagina. Of course the exact location varies from woman to woman, and even within the same woman depending on the time of day, mood, and how aroused she is. But don’t stress yourself too much about all this variation – you’ll know you’ve found it as the G-Spot has a very distinctive texture, somewhat mimicking the roof of a mouth.

The jury is out on whether the G-Spot is actually a specific organ of its own, or whether it’s actually part of a larger system of pleasure receptors. One theory is that the G-spot is actually the internal extension of the clitoris, which is much larger than the small, external nib we commonly assume it to be. If this is the case, when we talk about the differences between ‘clitoral orgasm’ and ‘G-Spot orgasm’ we are actually discussing the nuances of stimulating different zones of the same pleasure centre. Neat, right?

 So, of course it makes sense for us to be a bit obsessed with pleasure receptors – but why the G-Spot specifically? Well, we generally find that the wave of curiosity that washes through the store here is motivated by female ejaculation. That’s right, orgasms from clitoral stimulation are great, but if you want to open the flood gates, you have to get some G-Spot action in there. That’s not to say that all orgasm which are centered in the G-Spot will result in squirting, but it is a must for squirting to happen. Many people are interested in making their partners squirt because it’s sexy, taboo and exciting. It’s such a visual and visceral representation of the pleasure that your partner is feeling, and seeing that so much of female pleasure is visually subtle, this can be very appealing. For people wanting to explore their own bodies more, squirting can be an awesome thing to try to do either solo or with a partner. And if you find that you’re just not a squirter, at least you’ve had lots of fun discovering a whole range of sensations and delights! Sometimes the journey really is more fun than the destination.

The G-Spot is well worth learning more about, whether you possess one or wish to pleasure someone with one (or both!) Here at the Art of Loving, we encourage curiosity and exploration in the name of pleasure and fun. The more knowledge you are armed with, the more you can get out of your exploration, so make sure to sign up for one of our seminars once this covid thing is over.
