What Is the P-Spot?

Perhaps you have heard of the G-spot, but have you ever heard of the P-spot? Penis owners have a P-spot, which some people compare to vulva owners’ G-spot.

The P-spot’s existence may be less controversial as the“P” stands for prostate, which is the small walnut-sized gland located below the bladder and in front of the rectum that is responsible for producing the fluid that makes up part of semen. Although stimulating the penis is the best-known way to cause an orgasm in individuals who have a penis, some can also reach orgasm through stimulation of the prostate.

Some penis owners experience arousal through indirect stimulation of the prostate, either by pressing on the perineum (the area between the scrotum and the anus) or applying external pressure to the anus.

However, since the prostate is an internal organ, it may be best stimulated by inserting a finger or a sex toy into the anus. To facilitate this, clean the anal region, hands, and/or sex toy as well as possible. Applying a quality personal lubricant to the anus and the finger or sex toy that is to be inserted can make the experience more comfortable. Once the finger has been inserted, making a “come here” motion toward the front of the body may be the best way to find and stimulate the prostate.

The prostate itself may feel like a small, flattened piece of fruit. Some individuals feel a slight urge to urinate when they have correctly located their prostate because it is located directly below the bladder. Experimenting with different motions (making small circles with the finger or sex toy, tapping, or stroking) can help a person discover what is most pleasurable to them.

Stimulating the P-spot may be a new way for some penis owners to experience arousal, and it might even lead to orgasm. However, it is important to be patient if you do not experience a prostate-induced orgasm right away. Such orgasms require patience, practice, and relaxation. Nonetheless, whether or not one orgasms from stimulating the P-spot, it is still worthwhile to experiment with pleasurable sensations.
