Clitoral vs G-spot orgasms - which are better?
Ahhh, the female orgasm. Music to my (long) ears. Who doesn’t love a raging, full-blown orgasm every now and again? Wars have been fought and countries have crumbled due to the orgasm. Just, er, don’t quote me on that.
But which stimulation offers the better orgasm: clitoral or G-spot? First, a quick dive into what makes them so different and the mechanics behind it all.
Clitoral stimulation is what most people usually think of as the main way to get a woman off. Looking past an individuals’ personal preferences (a carrot up the arse or a blindfold and ball gag), clitoral stimulation is exactly that. With about 8,000 nerve endings situated inside of it, the clit is the queen of erogeny.
Located above the urethra, at the top of the labia minora, the clitoris is usually massaged to reach orgasm - either during sex or as a main meal of its own. Upon arousal and stimulation of the clitoris, it can sometimes double in size and become extremely sensitive.
Knowing how to stimulate the clit properly is essential, whether you’re a bloke looking to please his missus or a lady looking to get the job done herself. It’s said that over 75% of women need more than penetration to orgasm, so the importance of the clit can’t be overstated.
Luckily for you, stimulating the clitoris is easy and fun once you know what you’re doing. All women are different and some find direct contact too sensitive. This is why clitoral massaging can sometimes involve rubbing above the clitoris or on the small, fleshy hood which covers the top of it.
Pressure is another variable that is subjective with women. Some will need a hard and vigorous massage to be able to get off, while others can only take some light teasing. Whether you’re getting yourself off, or getting a lady friend off, experimentation and communication is key to figuring out what kind of clitoral stimulation will work best.
Bullet vibrators are a popular choice to achieve mind-blowing clitoral orgasms, just like this classic vibrator from Pillow Talk. Multiple settings and sizes allow you to fine tune sex toys until they can deliver the perfect orgasm.
I think the majority of ladies will agree that a clitoral orgasm is pretty damn good. But if you’re not able to get off via it, don’t worry, there’s plenty more ways to have your fun. Let’s investigate the G-spot next.
If you’re not even sure what the G-spot is exactly, here’s a quick and dirty rundown of all you need to know. Found about 2-3 inches inside the vagina, and on the front wall, the G-spot is an erogenous area known to heighten orgasms in some women when stimulated directly.
Because the G-spot is located inside the vagina, it’s often thought to be the cause of plain old penis-in-vagina orgasms. But it can also be stimulated at the same time as the clitoris for an extra special orgasm. You can usually reach the G-spot yourself if you’re having a bit of alone time, or a partner can stimulate it during oral sex so you get to enjoy a hands-free experience.
The ideal way to find and stimulate the G-spot is to make a ‘come here’ kind of motion with one, two, or three fingers inside the vagina. Your fingertips should be in contact with the front wall of the vagina and applying varying levels of pressure until you find the one that makes you shiver. For most people, a fairly hard touch delivers the best results, so make sure you keep applying pressure while searching.
There’s no hard and fast rules when it comes to the mysterious G-spot, so don’t worry if it takes you a little while to figure out what works for you. It’s less of a ‘button’ and more of a vague area, so it could take you some time to find what kind of pressure and what movement/speed gets you off.
Use of a sex toy vibrator like this G-spot vibrator from Lil'Vibes is a perfect way to stimulate the area thanks to its expertly designed curve and bulbous tip which will firmly send orgasmic vibrations to the desired spot.
Don’t be pulling your ‘hare’ out if you’ve never had a G-spot orgasm. Some gals just aren’t able to and sometimes your first time happens later in life. Keep your fingers crossed that some young rabbit hops along soon and shows you just how good it can feel.
What’s the Verdict?
Well, my cheeky little bunnies, I guess it’s time for me to weigh in on the popularity war between these two tantalisingly tasty orgasms. And the answer might actually surprise you. As far as the world of science is concerned, and despite extensive studies, the existence of the G-spot isn’t even widely accepted. Some believe it doesn’t even exist.
“Doesn’t even exist?” I hear you cry out in dismay, “But I’ve orgasmed from it. It has to exist!” Don’t worry, Ricky believes you. But some scientists believe that it could simply be an extension of the clitoris or even a kind of female prostate. It’s a widely debated subject and it’s quite confusing that there’s so much uncertainty around it (despite the vast amount of circumstantial evidence).
With that in mind, I think we can safely say that the clitoral orgasm reigns supreme. Tried, tested, and verified by billions of women around the world. You can’t ask for a much better result than that, can you? If the G-spot truly is a part of the clitoral network (which we now know to be much larger than previously thought), then you could even say a G-spot orgasm falls under clitoral anyway!
Before you run off to do whatever naughty things you’re planning on doing, I’ll leave you with this little nugget of wisdom. It doesn’t really matter if you can only get your rocks off via clitoral stimulation or G-spot contact alone. Each and every orgasm is a blessing, no matter the path you take.
