Why can G-spot stimulation take a long time and then hurt?

Emily Nagoski
Emily Nagoski on behalf of Good In Bed
The buildup required for orgasm stimulated by the G-spot is, for most women, long and slow and intense. Don’t worry about taking “too long” -- the longer it takes, the bigger the orgasm. Stop if it hurts. Learning about the G-spot and what it can do for you is recreational. You can have a perfectly satisfactory and happy sex life without ever doing anything with it -- and a lot of women do. Your decision to learn more about this intense new kind of stimulation is like a daily jogger deciding to run her first mini-marathon. It takes something you already know and love to a profound new level -- but it is a hobby, something you do for fun and pleasure, not because you have to. G-spot stimulation isn’t for everyone. If it hurts, stop.
