The G-Spot Isn’t What You Think It Is

The G-Spot Isn’t What You Think It Is

Few aspects of genital anatomy have sparked as much scientific debate as the so-called G-spot (also known as the Grafenberg spot). Some researchers have argued that it is a distinct anatomic site, claiming to have found definitive evidence for its existence, whereas others have argued that the evidence behind such claims is far from convincing.

5 Common Questions About Vaginas And Vaginal Sex

5 Common Questions About Vaginas And Vaginal Sex

As a sex educator, I get approached with sex questions all of the time. However, I can't help but notice that some topics come up much more frequently than others. As a result, I have started putting together resource guides to address the most common questions I receive on a given topic. The last guide covered questions about penis size, so this guide will address questions about vaginas. Below are the 5 most common questions I've received on this topic. Each question is followed by a short answer, along with a link to a longer answer.

10 Surprising Facts About The Vagina

Although many women and their sexual partners have taken some time to familiarize themselves with the vagina, the reality is that most of us don’t know as much as we should about this fascinating piece of anatomy. Below, I’ve compiled a list of ten of the most interesting facts about the vagina because, well, knowledge is power…and also pleasure.

The vagina naturally becomes looser when women are sexually aroused in order to prepare for intercourse, but after sex, everything goes back to its normal state. What does cause vaginal looseness? Childbirth (sometimes) and older age. Click here to learn more.

Female Ejaculation: Fact Or Fiction?

In my experience as a sex educator, the female orgasm has generated far more questions than any other topic. “Why do some women have an easier time reaching orgasm than others?” “Can women really achieve multiple orgasms?” “What’s the best sexual position for making a woman orgasm?” These are just a few of the many such questions I have previously answered on the blog.

Many people seem to think that this is nothing but an urban legend, so let’s take a moment to set the record straight.

Sex Question Friday: What’s The Difference Between Clitoral And G-Spot Orgasms?

Every Friday on the blog, I answer people’s questions about sex, love, and relationships. This week’s question comes from a reader who wanted to know more about the relationship between G-Spot and clitoral orgasms.

I know that some women can only experience clitoral orgasm but not G Spot orgasm. I was curious to know if there are many cases of women who are able to have G Spot orgasms but are incapable of orgasming through clitoral stimulation. I'm sure there are a few cases but are these the exception to the rule or is it quite variable?

The History Of Motorized Sex Toys
Believe it or not, human beings have been making sex toys since the Stone Age. Dildos, Ben Wa balls, and various other devices to aid in sexual pleasure have a surprisingly long (and quite interesting) history.
