The mysteries of the G-spot and P-spot

By Brittney MacDonald, Life & Style Editor


Seeing as it is February, romance is in the air, and on a lot of people’s minds! How can you ensure that you please that special someone on the day of reckoning aka V-day? Well, you could go the sugar daddy/mama route and shower them with gifts, or you could just be a really amazing lover…

Sound difficult? That’s because it is. Sex is like a really awkward game of Calvin-Ball—the rules constantly change and you never know if you’re winning or losing until someone yells “Done!”

However, if it’s your intention to woo your beloved or obligatory one-night-stand, have no fear! I am here to educate and enlighten regarding that one perfect pleasure button in all of us.

Known as the G-spot in women, and the P-spot in men, this little bundle of nerves is the hot key to romantic success. But where do you find such an elusive temptation?

With the G-spot, it’s a common misconception that it is located along the back of the vaginal wall. This isn’t true. The G-spot is actually the back of the clitoris, so it is located inside the vagina, near the vaginal opening. The quickest way to find it? Make a “G” with your hand, curling your thumb in towards the inside of your palm to form the little cleft. Insert your thumb past the vaginal opening, laying your fingers over the pubic bone. Your curled thumb is now rubbing up against the G-spot. So for those of you who were concerned, the saying is true—size really doesn’t matter.

The P-spot is a little trickier to find. P-spot actually refers to the prostate, which is located in the middle of the pelvis. Only men have them, and they are incredibly sensitive. It has some prime real estate, being as it is located between the penis and the bladder, but this also makes it a little harder to find, since it’s smaller than the G-spot. The easiest way to find the P-spot is to insert your finger into the rectum and run it along the wall closest to the penis until your partner tells you that you found it. If butt stuff isn’t your thing, you can also stimulate the prostate by applying some serious pressure on the perineum while your partner has an erection. This is a little trickier, but it is doable. Press up as much as you can with two fingers, and then forward. You’ll be able to feel the muscle, just try to rub against it.

If this all sounds a little too complicated, or you’re not sure you want to risk fumbling around in the dark, there are plenty of adult toys that you can incorporate into your Valentine’s Day jubilation that are made to stimulate these elusive pleasure points.
