Finding Your Little G for a Big O




Sure, we all know that penises are like...well, everything that's tall and pointy, man-made or natural. Obelisks, monuments, statues, mountains, trees...they're everywhere.


So, where does that leave women, when it comes to describing our private parts? My best guess is that they're like those cool old caves, the ones lined with primitive drawings, the ones that are mysterious, curvy, and full of hidden treasures around every bend. And one of those hidden treasures is the elusive and much sought after G-spot.


Now, to be honest, I'm making up the cave thing, although I do think it's a pretty good comparison. And the G-spot thing? Well, I don't know much about that either. In fact, before I started this review, I still thought the G-spot might be a myth, like Loch Ness or Big Foot. Sure, I'd heard tales that my G-spot was in there somewhere, and that it would bring great joys if only I could find it but I'd heard the same thing about Leprechauns, too, and hadn't rushed out to find them either.


Still, the idea intrigued mecould I find my G-spot? Would I know it when I saw it? And would it really offer a pot of orgasmsand possibly even an ejaculation? at the end of the rainbow? Since I didn't have a map, and hadn't been lucky enough to find an experienced guide to show me the way, I decided to turn to the G-Spot Center, an online G-spot resource from Babeland, to help me get started.


This is what I learned from the website: First off, unlike Bigfoot, the G-spot really has been proven to exist. Named after sex researcher Ernst Grafenberg, the G-spot is a super sensitive spongy tissue that wraps around the urethra. When aroused, the G-spot swells and fills with fluid, making it easy to find with your fingers. And, joy of all joys, G-spot stimulation really can and does give lots of women orgasms.


Now, I know that reading about your G-spot and actually finding it are two entirely different things. So, in the name of research, I figured I'd better unfold my mental map and get in there and do some exploring. Of course, I packed a bag of toys and conned a partner into coming with me, just to make the journey that much more fun!


This is what I learned from my own exploration: First off, my G-spot really does exist. And it does feel like a sponge. But it also feels amazingly good, and sensitive, and shivery. It's a strange sensation, like wanting to pee and have an orgasm all at onceand while it took a little getting used to, it didn't take long to see why women around the world spend their precious time chasing after this elusive beast.


And one of the easiest ways to find it is by using toys that are designed to specifically target your G-spot area. I tried out three, purely for research of course, and found each one had something a little different to offer:


Rock Chick


If it's your first time, don't go exploring alone. Instead, let the Rock Chick guide you to your hidden hot spots. This U-shaped silicone toy might look like a soft purple lobster claw, but once you get it inside, it feels more like a perfect pearl. Slide it in, rock it up, and you'll be amazed at the way it hits both your G-spot and your clit at the same time. If you have a thing for hot and cold, you can alter the temperature of this toy by running it under warm water or popping it in the fridge. Perfect for coupling, because it gives your partner a close-in hold, and allows either of you control of the motion and speed.
