The Difference Between G-Spot and Clitoral Orgasms

By AskMyGF · 28 / Woman / Likes Men / Single

Women are blessed with two “pleasure spots” from which an intense and sexually pleasurable orgasm can result.  It’s worth noting, however, that many women tend to orgasm through stimulation of either the G-Spot or clitoris or prefer one over the other depending on a number of factors, including ease of stimulation, ease of access, appropriate lubrication, and sensitivity.

An explanation of clit orgasms

The clitoral orgasm is, obviously, based on stimulation of the clitoris, which is the female’s equivalent of the penis.  It is an extremely sensitive body part, and its stimulation will usually cause it to become erect in much the same way the male’s penis does by becoming engorged with blood, although its size is clearly not comparable.  The clitoris is located in the female genitalia above the vulva and is mostly obscured beneath a hood that protects this extremely sensitive part of the anatomy.

How to have clit orgasms

The clitoris can be stimulated manually, orally, or with the use of sex toys or other implements.  When women experience a clitoral orgasm, they generally describe such as being a much more intense orgasm than the vaginal G-Spot orgasm.  This is because the clitoral glans contains a bundle of more than 8000 nerves, which is twice as many nerve endings as contained in the male penis.  For this reason, it is important to remember that while clitoral orgasms can be extremely pleasurable, the clitoris can also be overly or even painfully stimulated if there is not sufficient lubrication or care is not taken.

G-spot orgasms

Conversely, the G-Spot orgasm is experienced completely internally and is caused by the stimulation (almost exclusively rhythmic in nature) of the vaginal wall, typically by penile or other penetration.  There is still some level of skepticism in the medical community regarding the existence of the G-Spot, since there are relatively few nerve endings in the vaginal wall as compared to the clitoris.  It was not until 2008 that an Italian researcher produced evidence via an ultrasound that indicated the existence of the G-Spot – often thought of as “mythical” among women who don’t experience internal vaginal orgasms since Sigmund Freud suggested its existence more than 100 years ago.  Women who do experience G-Spot orgasms, however, describe them as being “deeper” and “calmer” than their clitoral counterparts.

Having both clitoral and g-spot orgasms

For women who can experience both G-Spot and clitoral orgasms, this opens up the possibility of having two simultaneous orgasms via stimulation of both spots.  Although the specifics of the technique will vary from woman to woman, a good way to start if you’re interested in attempting simultaneous clitoral and G-Spot orgasms is by employing the doggie style position.  This style of lovemaking can be helpful in letting a woman potentially achieve “double” orgasm because, first, it tilts her pelvis in such a way that the vaginal wall is more easily accessible for stimulation.  Similarly, this also makes the clitoris more easily accessible for manual stimulation.  For the same reasons, the reverse cowgirl position might also allow a woman to achieve simultaneous clitoral and G-Spot orgasms.

For me (I imagine this applies to other guys as well - but I do not know for sure), I may experience two types of orgasms. One is just ok - good while it lasts, penis and balls shake kind of orgasm. Other type if one I feel throughout the body, the body gets goosebumbs and shakes, not just penis and balls. Do women experience comparable orgasms and if so - which one is the ok-good one and which one is felt all over? I have heard that g-spot is the latter type.
