Penetrative pleasure has often been linked to the G-spot, an area inside the vagina which is highly sensitive, but equally elusive. You’ll find a thousand articles online that aim to help you find this 'precious' spot, but many fail to do so regardless.

If you also haven't succeed on locating this mysterious pleasure pocket, forget about it! There's another area in your vaginal canal that can give you even more mind-blowing orgasms—the A-spot.

No, we’re not making this up, as even experts have confirmed its existence. And it gets better because hitting this soft, spongy area is apparently what increases your chances of having a vaginal orgasm.

What is the A-spot?

The A-spot is also known as the anterior fornix erogenous zone, and according to experts at Healthline, it’s located somewhere between the cervix and the bladder. Like the G-spot, the A-spot is also on the front wall of the vagina, which is towards your stomach. But while the G-spot is two inches from the opening of the vagina, the A-spot is way (way) deeper.

Sex therapist, Dr. Angela Jones says that it is around four to six inches inside the canal, which is why you can only access it with a penis, a sex toy, or very, very long fingers.

How do you know if you’ve found it? Dr. Sadie Allison, author of The Mystery of the Undercover Clitoris says that it feels soft and spongy, and it makes you extremely wet. She explains:

It’s made up of an area of sensitive tissue that lubricates when touched and stimulated.

Stimulating your A-spot

Medical News Today reported that Dr. Chua Chee Ann was the first person who studied the spot, and she found that 10 to 15 minutes of stimulation helps with vaginal dryness. Another study done in 1997 also found that 15% of females had an orgasm right after stimulating the A-spot.

Given that this area is all the way at the back of the female cave, it can either be reached directly through the vaginal cave with a long instrument, or indirectly through anal penetration.

The key to stimulating is to apply pressure instead of using vibrations. Sex and intimacy expert, Gigi Engle tells Cosmopolitan:

What it does have is pressure-sensitive nerve endings. You’ll need to push and firmly touch the area to ignite feelings of pleasure.
