What is the clitoris and what does it do? Is it the same as the G-spot?

The clitoris is a small, sensitive organ located at the top of the vulva, just above the urethra and the vaginal opening. The function of the clitoris is to provide pleasure. Many women and girls enjoy touching, or having their partners touch their clitoris because this can be arousing and can also give them an orgasm.

The G-spot is inside the vagina, on the front wall toward the front of the body and has a different texture than other areas inside the vagina. Some girls and women say that rubbing this spot gives them an orgasm. These orgasms sometimes result in ejaculation. That is, some girls spray a fluid out of the area near the urethra—not urine—during orgasm.

Finding the G-spot can be tricky. When a finger is inserted into the vagina, think of the opening as a clock. Pressing toward the front side of the body, toward the pelvic bone, is 12:00 and pressing down toward the anus is 6:00. The G-spot on most females is at 12:00. It is only about an inch or two inside the entrance to the vagina, and the skin feels uneven. The tissue usually swells a little during intense stimulation.

Since each person likes to be touched differently, talk with your partner about what exactly feels good, such as the place being touched and the amount of pressure used. Most people would agree that communication is key to the healthiest sexual experiences.

By the way, males have a “male G-spot”: the prostate gland.
