The G-spot still fuels healthy controversy, even in 2017. The internet will assure you that everyone can have a G-spot orgasm. Patriarchal culture can often convince people that G-spot orgasms (vaginal orgasms) are somehow more real or more valid than clitoral orgasms and that these are the types of orgasms that should be happening during penis-in-vagina sex. However, when you talk to real people, there’s a lot of confusion about whether the G-spot exists, where you can find it, and how it’s supposed to make you feel.

One vagina-owner I spoke with said, “From what I’ve heard throughout my life the G-spot should be an ‘obvious’ place or feeling when ‘found.’ I think I know where mine is. But I’m not 100% sure.”

Another woman shared, “I am confused by it! I’ve sometimes felt what I think is the G-spot stimulated during doggy-style sex but it also made me feel like I had to urinate, which wasn’t pleasant. I’ve never found it myself.”

If you can relate, you’re in good company. Only 6% of women orgasm via vaginal penetration during sex. Most women need some type of clitoral stimulation to orgasm.
