We have a long running series called the Vagina Dialogues where Ryan and I comment back and forth on different aspects of a woman’s vagina. Today, I am going to blog an excerpt from a great book by Desmond Morris, The Naked Woman, A Study of The Female Body, which lists a few areas of the Vagina most people do not know about. Ryan really doesn’t need to add his dialogue here, he should just takes notes and listen! However, I have added my own comments and experiences below. I have also added photos to go along with each description and a few other erogenous “spots” that were surprisingly not listed by Desmond Morris.
In addition to the vaginal passage and its surrounding labia, the female genitals also boast four sexual ‘Hot Spots.’ These are small zones of heightened erotic sensitivity, the stimulation of which during the mating act helps to bring the female nearer to an orgasmic condition. They are: the Clitoris, the U-spot, the G-spot, and the A-spot. The first two are outside the vagina, the second two inside it:
This is the best known of the female genital hot spots, located at the top of the vulva, where the inner labia join at their upper ends.
Much like an uncircumcised penis, you can pull back the clitoral hood and the tip of the clitoris will be exposed.
The visible part is the small, nipple-sized, female equivalent of the tip of the male penis, and is partially covered by a protective hood. Essentially it is a bundle of 8000 nerve fibres, making it the most sensitive spot on the entire female body. It is purely sexual in function and becomes enlarged (longer, more swollen, more erect) and even more sensitive during copulation. During foreplay it is often stimulated directly by touch, and many women who do not easily reach orgasm purely from vaginal stimulation find it easier to climax from oral, digital, or mechanical stimulation of the clitoris.
This is the spot of all spots. You can call it the C-Spot if you want, because if you C (see) this spot, you better put your mouth on it, suck on it, lick on it, touch it, tap your dick against it, rub it, circle it, pinch it, jerk it, stroke it, and make sure you leave your woman with a C (sea) spot on the bed. When I orgasm during oral sex, it’s always because Ryan is gentle (but quickly) flicking his tongue back and forth over my clitoris. This orgasm is my most powerful. Whether it be with my own fingers, Ryan’s tongue, or a vibrator, this is the spot. As soon as I orgasm though, slow down and take it easy. Much like your penis head gets sensitive after/as you orgasm, our clits get extremely sensitive as well and too much movement can ruin our orgasms and be very painful.
An Australian surgeon recently reported that the clitoris is larger than previously thought, much of it being hidden beneath the surface. The part that is visible is simply its tip, the rest of its length – its shaft – lying beneath the surface and extending down to surround the vaginal opening. This means that, during pelvic thrusting, its concealed part will be massaged vigorously by the movements of the inserted penis. There will therefore always be some degree of clitoral stimulation, even when the tip is not touched directly. The clitoral shaft is, however, less sensitive than the exposed tip, so that direct contact with the tip will always have a greater impact on female arousal. Some women claim that, by employing a rhythmic, downward roll of the pelvis, they can create a direct friction on the clitoris tip while the male is making pelvic thrusts, and can in this way magnify their arousal, but this requires a more dominant role for the female, which is not always accepted by the male.
This is a small patch of sensitive erectile tissue located just above and on either side of the urethral opening. It is absent just below the urethra, in the small area between the urethra and the vagina. Less well known than the clitoris, its erotic potential was only recently investigated by American clinical research workers. They found that if this region was gently caressed, with the finger, the tongue, or the tip of the penis, there was an unexpectedly powerful erotic response.
The U-Spot. This spot is easy to remember because it’s near the “U”rethra opening. If “U” already knew about this spot, then “U” are the man. This is the highly sensitive erectile tissue just above the urethra, between the clitoris and the urethra, and even surrounding the urethral opening. This area can be stroked or tapped to increase arousal. I enjoy this area licked, but honestly I cannot really differentiate whether Ryan’s tongue is sliding over my urethra, U-Spot, or around my hole. It all feels amazing. With oral sex, I always orgasm when the tongue is stimulating directly on my clitoris. However, before I grab the sheets and bite my lips because my clitoris is being flicked, I like to feel Ryan’s tongue softly exploring my U-Spot, urethra, and inside and around my vaginal passage.
While on the subject of the female urethra, it is important to mention ‘female ejaculation.’ In the male, the urethral tube delivers both urine and seminal fluid containing sperm. In the female it is usually believed that it delivers only urine, but this is not the case. When there is an unusually powerful orgasm, some females may emit a liquid from their urethral openings that is not urine. There are specialized glands surrounding the urethral tube, called Skene’s glands, or para-urethral glands, similar to the male’s prostate, and under extreme stimulation they produce an alkaline liquid that is chemically similar to male seminal fluid. Women who experience ejaculation (which ranges in quantity from a few drops to a few tablespoonfuls), sometimes imagine that the extreme muscular exertions of their climactic moments have forced them into involuntary urination, but this is simply because they do not understand their own physiology. Nor, incidentally, did some medical authorities, who insisted that ejaculating women were suffering from ‘urinary stress incontinence’ and suggested operations to cure it. (One man recently filed for divorce because he believed that his wife was urinating on him, such is the ignorance of female genital activity.)
It is not clear what the value of this female ejaculation can be, as its occurrence is clearly a little late to act as an aid to lubrication. Vaginal lubrication is, in fact, carried out by the walls of the vagina themselves, which rapidly become covered in a liquid film when female sexual arousal first begins.
Or the Grafenberg Spot. This is a small, highly sensitive area located 5-8 cm (2-3 inches) inside the vagina, on the front or upper wall. Named after its discoverer, a German gynaecologist called Ernst Grafenberg, it is sometimes romantically referred to as the Goddess Spot. Research into the nature of the female orgasm, carried out in the 1940s, led to the discovery that the female’s urethral tube, that lies on top of the vagina, is surrounded by erectile tissue similar to that found in the male penis. When the female becomes sexually aroused, this tissue starts to swell. In the G-spot zone this expansion rebults in a small patch of the vaginal wall protruding into the vaginal canal. It is this raised patch that is, according to Grafenberg, ‘a primary erotic zone, perhaps more important than the clitoris.’ He explains that its significance was lost when the ‘missionary position’ became a dominant feature of human sexual behaviour. Other sexual positions are far more efficient at stimulating this erogenous zone and therefore at achieving vaginal orgasms.
The G-Spot. The Grafenberg Spot, the Goddess Spot, or the She-Spot. The G-Spot lives within or on the top edge of the female prostate/A-Spot (noted by its rippled, ridgy texture) about an inch or so inside the vagina, on the anterior wall. Ryan can press on the G-Spot and A-Spot at the same time, which has caused me to uncontrollably squirt. My liquid was not clear or yellow, but instead a bit thicker and somewhat milky. It gushed out of my body, and I had never seen that color fluid flow out of my body in all my years. It definitely wasn’t urine. However, for me, this is very rare and it takes a lot of pressure from Ryan, doing almost like a forklift motion with his fingers inside me to create this ejaculation.
It should be pointed out that the term ‘G-spot’ was not used by Grafenberg himself. As mentioned above, he called it ‘an erotic zone,’ which is a much better description of it. Unfortunately, the modern use of ‘G-spot’ as a popular term has led to some misunderstanding. Some women have been led to believe, optimistically. that there is a ‘sex button’ that can be pressed like a starter button, at any time, to cause an erotic explosion. Disappointed, they then come to the conclusion that the whole concept of a ‘G-spot’ is false and that it does not exist. The truth, as already explained, is that the G-spot is a sexually sensitive patch of vaginal wall that protrudes slightly only when the glands surrounding the urethral tube have become swollen. Several leading gynaecologists denied its existence when it was first discussed at their conferences, and a major controversy arose, but later, when it was specially demonstrated for their benefit, they changed their minds. Sexual politics also entered the debate, when certain anti-male campaigners rejected out of hand the idea that vaginal orgasm could be possible. For them clitoral orgasm was politically correct and no other would do. How they have reacted to the recent marketing of ‘G-spotter’ attachments for vibrators is not recorded.
Astonishingly, there have been recent reports that some women have been undergoing ‘G-spot enhancement.’ This involves injecting collagen into the G-spot zone to enlarge it. According to one source, ‘One of the latest procedures to catch on is G-spot injection. Similar substances to those injected into the lips to plump them up can now be injected into your G-spot. The idea is that this will increase its sensitivity and so give you better orgasms.’ This sounds more like an urban myth than a surgical reality, but where female sexual improvements are concerned, almost anything is possible.
The AFE-zone or Anterior Fornix Erogenous Zone. Also referred to as the Epicentre. This is a patch of sensitive tissue at the inner end of the vaginal tube between the cervix and the bladder, described technically as the ‘female degenerated prostate.’ (In other words, it is the female equivalent of the male prostate, just as the clitoris is the female equivalent of the male penis.) Direct stimulation of this spot can produce violent orgasmic contractions. Unlike the clitoris, it is not supposed to suffer from post-orgasmic over-sensitivity.
The A-Spot. The AFE-zone, the Anterior Fornix, or the Anterior Fornix Erogenous zone; a zone on the anterior of the vaginal wall near the cervix. This spot can be stimulated by fingers or penis/toy from a facing each other/missionary position. Stimulating this area may also activate the bladder. The A-Spot has also been called the “female degenerated prostate.” The A-Spot is also said to increase lubrication if stimulated 5-10 minutes/day for a week (for women who have dryness). This spot being stimulated on me during sex guarantees that I get wet. For us, the best way to do this is with me on top of Ryan. I will sit on him, riding, and slide my body all the way back so it straightens his penis out inside me and forces his cock to rub extremely hard on my A-Spot and G-Spot. The further I slide my ass down (towards his knees), the more the angle intensifies and creates the “pushing” effect against my A-Spot and G-Spot. When I slide back over him into our normal position or he rolls me over after I have forced his penis to rub my A-Spot, my insides and thighs will be dripping. This works for me every time.
Its existence was reported by a Malaysian physician in Kuala Lumpur as recently as the 1990s. There has been some mis-reporting about it, and its precise position has been incorrectly described by several writers. Its true location is just above the cervix, at the innermost point of the vagina. The cervix of the uterus is the narrow part that protrudes slightly into the vagina, leaving a circular recess around itself. The front part of this recess is called the anterior fornix. Pressure on it produces rapid lubrication of the vagina, even in women who are not normally sexually responsive. It is now possible to buy a special AFE vibrator – long thin and upward curved at its end, to probe this zone.
Students of female sexual physiology claim (perhaps over-enthusiastically) that if these four erotic centres are stimulated in rotation, one after the other, it is possible for a woman to enjoy many orgasms in a single night. It is pointed out, however, that it takes an extremely experienced and sensitive lover to achieve this.
It has been claimed that two out of every three women fail to reach regular orgasms from simple penetrative sex. As mentioned above, most of them find that only digital or oral stimulation of the clitoris can be guaranteed to bring them to climax. This must mean that, for them, the two ‘hot spots’ inside the vagina are not living up to their name. The reason for this, it seems, is monotony in sexual positioning. A group of 27 couples were asked to vary their sexual positions experimentally, employing postures that would allow greater stimulation of the two vaginal ‘hot spots,’ and it was found that three-quarters of the females involved were then able to achieve regular vaginal orgasms. – Desmond Morris, The Naked Woman: A Study of the Female Body, (2004).
Below are a few spots not listed by Desmond Morris. Surprisingly, one of these spots is one of my favorites and also how I orgasm through intercourse.
The cervix or cervix uteri (Latin: neck of the uterus) is the lower part of the uterus in the human female reproductive system. In a non-pregnant woman, the cervix is usually between 2 and 3 cm long and roughly cylindrical in shape. The narrow, central cervical canal runs along its entire length, connecting the uterine cavity and the lumen of the vagina. The opening into the uterus is called the internal os and the opening into the vagina is called the external os. The lower part of the cervix, known as the vaginal portion of the cervix (or ectocervix), bulges into the top of the vagina. The cervix has been documented anatomically since at least the time of Hippocrates, over 2,000 years ago.
As far as the cervix being a “hot spot” in the vagina, there really isn’t a hotter spot. The cervix is probably much like a man’s prostate as you orgasm (during an orgasm, my husband loves pressure on his prostate area under his balls, or just me rubbing his taint/guiche as he cums). If the cervix is rubbed properly or pounded, while we orgasm, it makes the orgasm much more intense. Most men can pound/tap/or rub on the cervix because it is maybe 3 to 4 inches inside a woman. In fact, I remember the first time I really thought about it was during my first pregnancy and the doctor stuck maybe half his finger inside me and could tell how dilated my cervix was. I didn’t start off my sexual life knowing everything, and neither did Ryan. We both talked about the cervix after our first child, because honestly neither of us had a clue about the anatomy of a woman or what exactly his penis was rubbing against inside me. I have since felt my own cervix with my fingers, so I’d so most men can easily let the penises tap/pound/or rub on a cervix during our orgasms.
I’ve read online that some men claim that they can enter inside a cervix. This has been guys who also claim to be 7 to 10 inches in size, with I assume extremely small girths. Because this is the internet, I have to say I doubt it. I’ve read various reports from OB-GYNs that say it just isn’t possible, it would cause infections, prolapsed cervix, and many other problems a woman wouldn’t want. I’ve also never seen it myself and I have never seen a porn where the women have sex with much longer than average cocks and it not “bottom out” on camera. If you were to penetrate a cervix, I’d assume there would be no back wall a “human” can reach and you just wouldn’t bottom out. A woman, much like her anus, would be able to take extremely long dildos or penises. Again, I have never seen the vagina do this. If you have, drop a link in the comments below. However, I will concede that anything is possible and if a woman wants a prolapsed cervix, she can try to let her man penetrate. The men that claim they do this, also claim that the women orgasm with much more intensity. I have read that some men instead stick just a finger inside and women seem to enjoy it. I may possibly enjoy this, but Ryan is still a bit squirmish about the idea of hurting me or going somewhere he really isn’t supposed to be (I guess he thinks he belongs in my esophagus and anus!!!). Since I never had natural child birth because my cervix wouldn’t dilate properly, I will probably never know these sensations. My body just isn’t made to have large things go in or out of my cervix.
With all that being said, I love having my cervix pounded extremely hard. When Ryan is back in my P-Spot (the spot mentioned below), I love feeling the ridge of his head and shaft rubbing over my cervix. In fact, during dirty talk I will always mention hurting my cervix and making me bleed. If I do spot or bleed that night or the next day, I am always a bit tickled and horny at the thought of having him pound my insides so hard. The pain this sensation gives me is extremely sexy so I guess I can see why some women may like the punishment of having a penis actually penetrate the cervix.
During an orgasm, the cervix is actually twitching and spasming. This is probably why this spot inside a woman is so important. The sensation of my body, while losing control, twitching and going into spasms, is probably why the cervix is so important. It really is the source for all the intense pressure and pain we all feel during our orgasms. Some people may not see it as a painful feeling, but if you stop and really pay attention to your body, the orgasm is really just this huge painful event that for some reason we all love. There is a reason why I moan, claw at the sheets, and lift my body 3 feet in the air while I orgasm. It’s very powerful. That little cervix is almost like the center of everything I feel during an orgasm.
The Posterior Fornix, or the Posterior Fornix Erogenous Zone, is a spot on the other side (deeper side / back of the vagina) of the cervix, the opposite of the A-Spot, near the posterior wall, most usually stimulated with a longer penis or sex toy. This spot may not be mentioned as much because some men cannot reach it. This spot is usually stimulated when a man is “bottoming out” inside a woman. Unfortunately, depending on the size of women vagina and a man’s penis, this isn’t something that can be stimulated that easily.
For me, I enjoy the P-Spot being pressed against as hard as Ryan can. This stimulation causes my insides/cervix to twitch and spasm, much like a clitoris orgasm. However, as my cervix spasms and twitches, I want to feel a constant pressure deep inside me. No moving back and forth, but instead, a constant pushing motion all the way in the back of my vagina. This is what I later learned was me having an orgasm through penetration. Like I mentioned earlier, I didn’t know my body very well when I first was married or sexually active. I felt all these sensations and didn’t know what an orgasm was through penetration. If it didn’t feel just like the orgasm I get from oral sex or fingers on my clitoris, it was just a great feeling, but not another type of orgasm. Boy was I wrong. Much like the 70% of women who cannot orgasm through penetration, I felt the same. Eventually, maybe 12 or 13 years into my relationship, I began to talk with Ryan and tell him what I wanted to feel. Usually it was this deep penetration that instead of moving back and forth, I wanted him to get his dick in as deep as possible and just push his body against my back walls while he bottomed out (P-Spot). My body goes numb, my cervix starts to twitch, and I get this really satisfied sensation. I do not want to feel his penis move out of me at all, I just want it to push as hard as it can, steady. I only get this orgasm/reaction when the P-Spot is being stimulated. I have also had orgasms feeling Ryan’s penis pushing against my P-Spot and feeling his orgasm shoot into my back walls. Unsure if this is a mental thing, a physical response to the chemicals inside semen triggering my cervix to spasm, or the pressure of his semen pulsating inside me causing me to orgasm. Desmond Morris is great, but he definitely dropped the ball on missing this spot inside a woman. This is also the area semen will shoot to and puddle up as a woman lifts her legs up in the air. If a woman orgasms after the man (most couples have the woman orgasm first because the stimulation and friction is what makes her orgasm), the cervix will spasm and dip down into this “holding pond of semen” area, helping get a woman pregnant. This is also why sometimes I think as soon as my body feels semen released inside this area, my cervix will spasm, because my body wants to get pregnant. No, nature and my body responding to my man’s semen is not gross. I love it.
Otherwise known as the “Kundalini” spot, which is the sensitive spot inside a woman where the penis rubs against the opposite side of the G-Spot. This spot can be reached by fingers, the penis, or even a sex toy (just roll around a curved dildo that is made to find the G-Spot, and it will then rub against the K-Spot). The K-Spot is basically the penis rubbing against the walls inside the vagina pushing down towards the anus. Unlike all the other spots mentioned above, this spot is putting pressure against the anus from inside the vagina. During an orgasm, putting pressure on the K-Spot can feel amazing. The sensation is much like anal, a real full feeling, with a lot of pressure. I’ve heard sometimes men can actually feel a woman’s “feces” inside her, if she isn’t totally “empty.” As gross as that sounds, this feeling creates extra texture and can get a “open-minded” man to orgasm very quickly. I use the word “open-minded” because a close-minded man tends to think women do not have feces (they are perfect) inside their body or would be grossed out about the idea that their penis can feel inside the anus while having sex. Thankfully I do not have a close-minded man. If a woman enjoys her K-Spot stimulated, she will probably also enjoy using a sex toy/vibrator on her clitoris while having anal sex. My best orgasms ever have been having anal sex while using a vibrator on my clitoris. The pressure and sensation inside my anus, especially during an orgasm, makes my orgasm much more intense.
For good measure I will add another spot on a woman, which somewhat goes with the K-Spot. The anus and the rim of the anus. I mentioned above what this spot does during an orgasm so I wanted to include it in this article. Although it’s not something everyone enjoys anymore, it is interesting Sigmund Freud explains the anal stage is the second stage of his theory of psychosexual development. According to Freud, the anus is the primary erogenous zone and pleasure is derived from controlling bladder and bowel movement. Some of us apparently do not unlearn this stage.
The anal stage is the second stage in Sigmund Freud’s theory of psychosexual development, lasting from age 18 months to three years. According to Freud, the anus is the primary erogenous zone and pleasure is derived from controlling bladder and bowel movement. The major conflict issue during this stage is toilet training. A fixation at this stage can result in a personality that is too rigid or one that is too disordered.
According to Freud’s theory, personality developed through a series of stages throughout childhood. These stages are focused on erogenous areas. Freud believed in the libido, which he referred to as psychosexual energy. To Freud, the libido was the driving force behind all of human behavior.” – Freud’s Stages of Psychosexual Development
The Nipples, The Guiche, Under the Arms, and more…
Another spot not mentioned in this types of articles (because usually we are talking about the vagina only) are the the breasts and nipples. The breasts can be a huge erogenous zone on a female. I have probably had more orgasms in my lifetime with my nipples being played with during sex, during oral, whether by Ryan or myself. I am unsure exactly why this spot needs to be stimulated for me to really enjoy oral sex, but I always play with my own nipples when I receiving oral sex. A list of other areas some women may like: Under the arms, tickling the knees and shins, rubbing over the rim of the anus, licking and sucking on the area that connects the vagina to the anus (Guiche), kissing while circling the clitoris with your fingers, rubbing her stomach, and licking her behind the ear. Every woman is different and we each have different erogenous zones. Although all the spots mentioned above are spots inside a woman’s vagina that may be something she enjoys, each woman is different and they may not react the same way another woman reacts. Learn your woman and her vagina, her body, and figure out what she enjoys the most.
