The Urethral Sponge

What is often referred to as the G-Spot is actually quite a big area known as the urethral sponge. As you might have guessed, there is also no one spot that feels good for all women – enough reason to dismiss the concept of the G-Spot altogether.

The urethral sponge is about 2-3 cm into your vagina and can be penetrated. If you want to try it, just use your fingers, slightly slide them in and curl them up towards the ceiling of the vagina. Rub there softly of make a movement with your fingers as though you want to call someone to come to you and you will notice a positive sensation that can travel up and down the entire sponge area. That's it.

Right behind this area is the bladder, which is why stimulating this part of your body might make you feel like you need to urinate. Also, this area fills up with fluid in order to protect our bladder from friction during penetrative sex. If you stimulate the urethral sponge and push out with your pelvic floor muscle, a small amount of fluid can be released. Female ejaculation is a real response for some women, but not for all of us.

What is important to know is that female ejaculation is separate from orgasm. Betty Dodson, founder of Bodysex, objects to the focus on female ejaculation because it mimics the male model of sexual response (ejaculation = orgasm). The female model of sexual response is much different and much more complex.
