THE GRAFENBERG SPOT FAQ

The G-Spot FAQ

Version 1.1 (c) Gnostalgia 1995 This is a semi-comprehensive guide composed of excerpts from women's health and sexuality books designed to answer:

What is the G-Spot? What is Female Ejaculation? How do I find the G-Spot? Does everyone have a G-Spot? How does one stimulate the G-Spot?

QUESTIIONS WHAT IS THE G-SPOT? The Grafenberg spot is an area on the anterior or front wall of the vagina, between the opening and the cervix, which is often found to be extremely sensitive to stimulation. It is hypothesized that the G-spot is either 1) a bundle of nerves coming from the clitoris, or 2) a gland or series of glands that produces lubrication. It is thought to be perhaps analagous to the prostate gland in men. WHAT IS FEMALE EJACULATION? Female ejaculation is the expelling of fluid from or around the urethra. This fluid is not urine, and is often accompanied by a powerful orgasm. Stimulation

of the G-Spot is thought to potentially cause this. HOW DO I FIND THE G-SPOT? Insert one or two fingers in the vagina with the palm facing the pubic bone. Gently bend your fingers 'forward' so that they stroke the anterior wall of the vagina. You may feel a raised spot or series of ridges, or you may feel nothing in particular. The woman may find this extremely pleasurable, or have an urge to urinate, or both. Stroking this spot with varying degrees of pressure will tell you if you've got it or not. DOES EVERYONE HAVE A G-SPOT? No. Your mileage may vary. Just as some woman find clitoral stimulation more or less pleasurable than others, G-spot response varies from woman to woman, and some may find it unpleasant or simply not special. HOW DOES ONE STIMULATE THE G-SPOT? Silly, that's a technique question. The factual stuff is above; anything else goes to Kama Sutra>.

FURTHER INFORMATION Ms. Magazine (November/December 1995) One of the more hotly contested debates concerns whether women can ejaculate. Reports have generally dismissed as tales told by women trying to cover up the fact that they'd "wet the bed." Many sexologists and physicians continue to label it "urine" (despite the fact that there is no telltale ammonia smell), "vaginal secretions," or even "leftover bathwater" (a la Masters and Johnson). Beverly Whipple is one of the several sex researchers who have conducted studies

on female ejaculation, and her findings, while not definitive, are intriguing. Whipple and others have analyzed women's "ejaculate" and found that it is chemically similar to men's ejaculate. They've also idenitified tiny glands embedded in the dense tissues surrounding the urethra that may be the source of this fluid. So, if all women have these glands, why don't we all ejaculate when we climax, just like men do? Researchers speculate that the amount of fluid varies, as it does in men, and may at times be so small as to not be noticed; may be confused with other vaginal secretions that occur during arousal; or, during heterosexual

sex, may be mistaken for a man's ejaculate. Does any of this matter? Some people find it preposterous the idea that women have have Prostate glands. But as Whipple says, "Women who experience this have reported secretly suppressing orgasms out of fear of wetting the bed." She notes Page 1

that some women have had unnecessary surgery to cure "incontinence." Knowing that ejaculation maybe perfectly normal is an important step in owning and accepting our sexuality. The New Our Bodies, Ourselves by the Boston Women's Health Book Collective:

"Two researches have recently identified what they call the Grafenberg spot (G-spot), a sensitive area just behind the front wall of the vagina between the back of the pubic bone and the cervix. They say that when this spot is stimulated during sex through vaginal penetration of some kind, some women orgasm with a gush of fluid FROM THE URETHRA, which is NOT URINE. [emphasis mine] This is at present a controversial theory among sex researchers. It's a relief for those women who feel a urethral gushing of liquid during orgasm to find an explanation for this apparent ejaculation, and for some others to find what may be another source of pleasure"--pg. 211 The Good Vibrations Guide to Sex, Cathy Winks and Anne Semans:

"Continuous stimulation of the urethral sponge can cause the paraurethral glands

to fill up with a clear, odorless fluid which is sometimes expelled frm the body

THROUGH THE URETHRA. This ejaculation can accompany orgasm or simply be part of arousal. Ejaculation and orgasm are two distinct physiological phenomena in both

women and men. Female ejaculation has been around as long as females have been around. Until recently, however, medical literature dismissed anecdotal evidence, suggesting that instead ejaculation was urinary incontinence In recent years, female ejaculate has been chemically analyzed and determined to

be DISTINCT FROM URINE [emphasis mine] in its composition If you've never experienced ejaculation and would like to, try incorporating G-spot stimulation into your usual masturbation techniques. As your urethral sponge grows more swollen and sensitive, bear down with your pelvic muscles.

Women's experiences of ejaculation can range from simply feeling more wet than

We are pleased that female ejaculation is now

acknowledged as a genuine sexual response, but we don't like to see it promoted as a new goal that every woman should stive to achieve."--pgs. 27-8 Lesbian Sex, by JoAnn Loulan:

"The urethra also carries ejaculate from the Graftenberg spot to the outside The paraurethral sponge is a dense concentration of blood vessels wrapped around

the urethra with the largest portion under the urethra next to the outer wall of

the vagina. Within the sponge is the paraurethral gland. This gland produces a watery fluid which is sometimes called ejaculate." Little is known about the paraurethral gland while much research has been done on the corresponing prostate gland in the male. Big surprise. The commonly heard term, Grafenberg, or "G" spot, refers to the place in the vagine where one can stimulate the sponge. It is about two inches up from the entrance to the vagina towards to front of the body. To find it, put your fingers inside your vagina with the finger tips towards your front and move the fingers up and down. The sponge swells when stimulated, and you may feel like you have to pee, or it may give you a pleasurable sensation. With continued stimulation, a fluid (ejaculate) is produced in the gland and through its ducts in the sponge is sometimes sprayed out of the body via the urethra. It may feel like a lot of liquid, but it usually is a few teaspoonfuls to half a cup Ejaculation usually happens at a different time than orgasm. Some women who ejaculate don't have orgasms at all. Others do both, but ejaculation and orgasm are different processes and are not tied to one another. Some women in fact don't even feel it when they do ejaculate."--pgs. 34-5.
