If you have the expectation that you can only orgasm from one particular area—like the G-spot or the clitoris—then you’re really blocking your ability to feel anything new or unexpected.
Everybody knows about the G-spot (that pleasure zone inside your vagina made up of erectile tissue and nerve endings). People tend to think it’s a magic sex button—a tried-and-true way to get yours, à la Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally. (You know, that deli scene.) But, in fact, there are a lot of different areas within the vagina that are highly orgasmic—namely, the A-spot and the PS-spot.
Not familiar? Consider them the G-spot’s lesser-known—but equally hot—siblings, AKA erogenous areas with concentrated nerve endings inside the vagina. And you should get to know them, because if you’re focusing solely on the OG (er, spot), you’re missing out.
If you have the expectation that you can only orgasm from one particular area—like the G-spot or the clitoris—then you’re really blocking your ability to feel anything new or unexpected; it limits your curiosity and your ability to discover new areas that could be really pleasurable. I liken it to going to Paris. Can you imagine if you went to Paris and all you ever did was go to see the Eiffel Tower? There’s this whole city to be explored.
What is the A-spot?
Short for anterior fornix, the A-spot is the innermost point deep within the vagina, right in front of the cervix.
How do you find it?
The A-spot is quite deeper inside the front (or anterior) wall than the G-spot. If the rule for finding your G-spot is slipping a finger about two inches inside your vagina and making a “come-hither” motion; the same goes for the A-Spot, except insert your finger
What is the PS-spot?
The PS-spot is opposite the G spot—on the exterior wall of the vagina, closer to your anus, which has a lot of super-sexy nerve endings to explore. Like the G- and A-spots, it’s made up of erectile tissue and swells and protrudes into the vagina itself when you’re fully aroused.
How do you find it?
If you turned your hand around from the G-spot and pressed down, that’s the PS-spot.
