So, now that we know that the A-spot exists, let’s get a bit more in-depth about where to find it and how to stimulate it!
Where is the A-spot?
Just as we mentioned the G-spot earlier, the A-spot and the G-spot are very close to each other.
The A-spot can be found around two inches above the G-spot, inside of the vagina.
And while this may be helpful for those who already know where the G-spot is, what about those who don’t?
The wondrous G-spot is short for Gräfenberg spot, and can be found one to three inches inside of the vagina. If you’re using your fingers you’ll notice the G-spot when you feel a slightly raised, bumpy area. The G-spot swells during arousal, making it easier to find.
Having said that, if you insert your fingers or toy further, about two inches, you’ll find your A-spot. Voila!
The thing about the A-spot however is that it doesn’t have a different texture, like the G-spot, so you may be unsure of if you’re stimulating it or not.
Try not to focus on finding the exact spot but rather, be mindful of how you feel. The A-spot has a number of nerve endings which means that even stroking the entire area can mean sexual bliss.
Remember: if you’re experiencing pleasure—you’ve already won.
Another thing to take note of: some may have difficulty reaching the A-spot with just their fingers. That is why it’s recommended to use a sex toy that’s at least five inches long for A-spot stimulation.
How to stimulate the A-spot through vaginal stimulation
We know! We’re talking an awful lot about the G-spot for an article focused on the A-spot. But! With the G-spot as reference, it’ll help many vulva owners as they embark on this thrilling journey.
So, to stimulate the A-spot, you’ll first want to find the G-spot. You can do this by inserting your fingers into your vagina, then curling your fingers towards your belly button in a “come hither” motion.
Once you’ve found that raised bumpy area, you’re almost at your A-spot. Simply push your fingers in another two inches and use a motion similar to windshield wiper to fully experience A-spot glory.
If you’re using a sex toy that’s been created to stimulate your G-spot or A-spot, it’ll be nice and curvy in such a way that it’ll reach those erogenous zones effortlessly.
But that’s just one way to stimulate your A-spot! Another way is through anal stimulation!
Note: thrusting in and out isn’t recommended when stimulating either the G-spot or the A-spot.
How to stimulate the A-spot through anal stimulation
Because the anus is so close to the vaginal wall, you could indirectly stimulate the A-spot with anal penetration. Isn’t that some amazing news for those who love anal play?
There are a few ways you can stimulate the A-spot through anal penetration. For one, you could do so with your or your partner’s finger(s). If this seems too difficult however, there are a few anal sex toys to help you reach this pleasure spot.
You could consider using a G-spot sex toy but in reverse. For example, inserting the toy into the anus rather than the vagina. This could work because the sex toy is already curved.
You could also consider anal sex toys, such as the SORAYA Beads, which is gender-neutral (i.e. they can be used to stimulate the A-spot, and the prostate).
And then, a sex toy made for prostate stimulation could work too! It’s all about trying new techniques and finding what works best for you.
One thing to note however: if you’re going to try anal stimulation, make sure that your anal sex toy has either a flared base or a large enough handle. This is so you can remove it easily without the risk of an accident (yes, things can get “lost” inside of you).
And so, whether you’re playing around vaginal or anally, finding the A-spot and experiencing a new kind of pleasure and climax is always fun! But if you find that you don’t particularly like A-spot play, that’s okay!
