What is in a name? 4 other ways to use a G-Spot vibrator

Let’s start with what the G-Spot is? It is an area on the front inside wall of the vagina, it feels a little spongier than the tissues around it and produces strong orgasms and sometimes female ejaculation when stimulated. There there is still some debate about the G-spot and how it works. The G-spot is located one to three inches the front inside wall of the vagina. Inserting a finger and making a "come hither" motion will help you locate it. It is believed to be an internal portion of the clitoris that you can stimulate with this motion.

Most women report that achieving an orgasm from G-spot stimulation is a different type of orgasm than one from clitoral stimulation, it tends to be more. There are vibrators and other sex toys specially designed to stimulate the G-spot and doggy style is known to be a good way to stimulate it

Q: A number of years ago I had uterine cancer and as a result I have to dilate every other day.

Does this sound familiar?

101 things on my to do list - Fatigued and pained - Too busy, Too tired - My scars are ugly - Hurry up or no that is not right.

Who has all this and far more going on in their head?

Sexual self care is knowing that there is more to sex than intercourse.

This could be a long one. Do not let your definition of sex be defined by porn or what you see in Hollywood romance movies.

Sex and pleasure are a smorgasbord and you get to choose what works for you. You can even change your mind and/or go back for seconds.
