You’ve heard of the G-Spot, but how about the C-Spot, A-Spot and O-Spot? Let’s dive a little deeper into these erogenous zones, and learn more about how to unlock the intense pleasure they can provide.
This guide was prepared by CLIMAX, A virtual training program that explores female pleasure. It is grounded in science and designed to improve pleasure.
The Deep Spots Are a Big Deal
The groundbreaking 1974 Hite Report on women’s sexuality found that only 30% of American women were able to orgasm from vaginal penetration alone. It was interesting to note that the numbers did not change when Shere Hite repeated her study for the year 2000.
A 1985 study however found that 89% of participants could orgasm via vaginal penetration. Without any other stimulation. What was the difference? The O-Spot and A-Spot were the sensitive areas of the vagina that they used to orgasm. These are located on either side the cervix. These pleasure zones are also known as Deep Spots, together with the C-Spot (cervix) and the Cervix.
Are Deep Spot Orgasms different from Clitoral Orgasms?
Since the 1970s, scientists have been debating whether orgasms triggered in different areas (such a clitoral and a vaginal one) are fundamentally different. It is not clear if there is a scientific consensus. Do your own experiments, and make your own conclusions.
These Deep Spot Techniques are a good idea before you try them.
Deep penetration can sometimes prove painful and uncomfortable. Therefore, we recommend starting slowly and gently. You can use a lubricant if necessary. Give yourself enough time to get excited before you go exploring the Deep Spots.
While Deep Spot stimulation can lead to orgasm for some people, many find that it’s the combination of this together with clitoral stimulation that really hits the spot. Try it out and find what works best for you.
As with anything, some people love Deep Spot stimulation while others don’t. If one of these techniques doesn’t feel pleasurable to you, simply move on to the next exercise.
In his influential 1997 study of 271 women, Dr Chee Ann Chua found that 39.1% of participants reached orgasm almost immediately following A-spot stimulation — without any external Stimulation of the clitoris. A-Spot stimulation was reported to increase arousal and vaginal oil in two-thirds (23%) of the women.
How to Find Your A-Spot
Under the bladder, the A-Spot can be found in the vagina’s front wall. It’s on the same side as the G-Spot, but a little deeper, usually around 10-15 cms from the vaginal opening, and around 2-3 cms away from the cervix.
If you feel a bumpy texture, that’s your G-Spot. To reach the A-Spot, go about 5 cm deeper. It should feel the same texture as the rest of your vaginal canal.
It may be easier to locate the A-Spot if you are already sexually stimulated. The O-Spot and A-Spot can be found in crevices to either side of your cervix. These crevices become more accessible during sexual arousal.
How to stimulate your A-Spot
Now, lie down on your back. Place one or two of your lubricated fingers into your vagina. Keep your palm facing upward. Now make a “come here” motion so that your fingers simultaneously curl upward against the front wall of your vagina — the side closer to your belly button.
Usually light, gentle strokes are all that’s needed to stimulate the A-Spot. Keep your hands in contact with your vaginal wall, and try to massage your temples with your fingers. You can experiment with side-to -side motions as well, up and down.
Can’t reach this spot with your fingers? Use a vibrator, vibrator, or narrow dildo to reach this spot. G-Spot Toy With a curved end. You can use the same gentle massage motions forward and back or side-to-side.
If you notice a feeling of pressure or sensitivity, and your vagina getting wetter and wetter — it sounds like you’ve found your A-Spot!
But don’t worry if you don’t feel anything special in this area. While some people find the A-Spot magical, others don’t feel anything, or are not particularly excited by these sensations. But don’t give up straight away — Dr. Chua found that some women simply need a fair amount of practise before this area becomes erotically sensitised.
The Cervix Or C-Spot
The cervix (or cervix) is the neck of the uterus in a donut shape, at the end of your vagina. While many people find the slightest touch to the cervix discomforting, some find it to be an attractive place. A study on paralysed women found that even those who had no feeling in their clitoris, they could still enjoy cervical stimulation.
Period Sex and the C Spot
In the days immediately before, during, or just after menstruation, the cervix will be closer to the vaginal opening, making it easier for you to reach and more sensitive. However, it will be less sensitive and further away from the vaginal opening during ovulation. This means that certain deep penetration sex positions such as “from behind” or “woman on top” might feel different at different times of your cycle.
How to stimulate your C-Spot
To get the best results, only touch your cervix when you are very excited. After washing your hands, insert your longest finger into your vagina. It might be helpful to apply a lubricant to aid in this process. Feel for a round, raised circle with a dimple in the middle — the cervix feels like a donut, with a texture similar to the end of your nose.
To make it easier to reach the cervix, Lie down on your stomach and lift your knees up to your chest. You will now insert a sextoy, such as a vibrator or dildo, slowly into your cervix until it touches your cervix. Use gentle, firm pressure to keep the toy in place. Make slow, circular movements with the toy’s end.
O-Spot can be found between the back of the vaginal wall, the rectum and can be stimulated with deep vaginal penetration or deep anal penetration.
A Turkish study revealed that 8 percent of participants had reported sensitive areas in their vagina(7).
How to stimulate Your O-Spot
If you’re already intoxicated, it may be easier for you to locate your O-Spot. It can be difficult for one person to reach this spot, so we recommend a partner.
Now, lie on your stomach and ask your partner for one or two fingers to go into your vagina. The palm of your hand should be facing upwards. Now have your partner make a “come here” motion so that their fingers simultaneously curl upward against the wall of your vagina (toward your back).
To get the best results, have your partner keep your fingers in constant contact to your back vaginal wall. Gently massage this area with a circular motion. Ask your partner how it feels and then see if you can find the sweet spot together.
There are 3 things you need to remember when Deep Spot stimulation is attempted
- It can be very enjoyable to push on the Deep Spots and stimulate the clitoris simultaneously.
- You can experiment with all these stimulation techniques by changing the speed, pressure, and direction (clockwise, counterclockwise, side-to-side). It might be worth trying different toys to see if they make a difference in how they react when warmed or cooled. Also, you might try a thick dildo for opening up the whole vagina and stimulating the O-Spot, Cervix and A-Spot simultaneously.
- Don’t worry if you can’t locate one of the particular Deep Spots, or any of them! It is important to experiment with different things in order to find what you like. In the end, it doesn’t matter whether or not you have a label for the exact places you like to be touched.
