Psychology

Most of the time, the clitoris is the center of a woman’s erotic world. In fact, 95% of women masturbate with no vaginal stimulation at all. G-spot stimulation is therefore a departure into a new world of sensation for a lot of women.

 

Between the clitoris and the vagina is the small, sometimes nearly invisible opening of the urethra, which leads to the bladder. This area is extremely sensitive, and women vary a lot in whether or not stimulation here feels erotic. For some women, it just feels like they have to pee.
