The G spot is located a few inches inside your vagina on the front wall. It can swell when you’re turned on. The G spot is named after Ernst Gräfenberg, a doctor who did lots of research on sexual and reproductive anatomy.

The G spot can be very sensitive, and it sometimes swells and gets even more sensitive when you're arousedStimulating the G spot can feel really good (especially when you're already turned on), and it can lead to intense sexual arousal and orgasm for some people. Other people don't like the feeling of having their G spot touched, or don't feel anything special when they touch this area. Either way is normal.

Everyone’s body is different, and there’s no one “right” way to feel aroused or have an orgasm. So try not to put any pressure on yourself or your partner to have an orgasm. A lot of people with vulvas have orgasms by stimulating their clitoris, but not by penetrating their vagina — some can’t have an orgasm through their vagina at all. All of these differences are normal. It’s totally healthy to explore your body and figure out what feels good to you.

There are many parts of your body that can make you feel excited or aroused when they’re touched — they’re called erogenous zones. For most people, erogenous zones are in their genital area: the vulva, clitoris, labia, vagina, anus, perineum, penis, scrotum, and prostate. Other common erogenous zones include your breasts and nipples, neck, lips, mouth, tongue, back, fingers, toes, hands, feet, earlobes, butt cheeks, and thighs. But usually the penis and clitoris are the most sensitive.

Any part of your body can be sexual — everyone’s different, and so are their erogenous zones.
