G-spot vibrators sound precisely like what they are: Vibes specifically designed to stimulate your G-spot. But what is the G-spot, and what makes a G-spot vibe different from all the other options on the market? There’s still a lot of debate over whether or not the G-spot exists (and if you can orgasm solely from penetrations and G-spot stimulation), but let’s take things one step at a time.
What is the G-spot?
The definition of the G-spot is, well, complicated. Also known as the Gräfenberg spot (named after German-Jewish gynecologist Ernst Gräfenberg, who was one of the early pioneers of sexual health back in the ‘20s) the G-spot is typically “found” when making the “come hither” motion with your forefinger curling inward when penetrating the vagina or vulva. It’s hard to say precisely where the G-spot is located, since all vaginal canals are different, and it’s not officially part of a vagina owner’s anatomic structure.
However! Some people find that when that area is stimulated enough, either with a finger, toy, or penis, they can achieve an orgasm. It’s all about experimentation and personal preference, which is why many vagina owners like to have a G-spot vibrator handy for when hands just aren’t enough.
What makes a G-spot vibrator different from other vibrators?
A G-spot vibrator is generally a long, wand-like toy that features a slightly curved, sometimes bulbous tip that’s meant to hit the elusive spot. It’s meant for penetration, but typically it’s not super deep (compared to, say, dildos, which usually provide more length and depth). Lastly, unlike a wand, clitoral, or rabbit vibrator, many G-spot vibes don’t offer clit stimulation (although if you know you need dual stimulation, you can find a G-spot vibrator that gives both your G-spot and clit love).
Dr. Laurie Mintz, Ph.D., author of Becoming Cliterate and A Tired Woman’s Guide to Passionate Sex, and sex expert for Lelo, tells Glamour, “While there are women who can climax from just G-spot stimulation, only a very small percentage of women say they orgasm most reliably from vaginal stimulation alone, and the rest most reliably orgasm from either clitoral stimulation or combining clitoral and vaginal stimulation. Given this, I recommend purchasing G-spot vibrators that also stimulate the clitoris. Then, subsequently, if the person finds that they don’t need or like the accompanying clitoral stimulation, they could then just try a G-spot vibrator.”
Whether you prefer dual stimulation, or are looking for a classic design that puts the G-spot front and center, here are the best G-spot vibes for your needs.
