Why does pressure on my G-spot either make me need to pee or hurt?

The vagina does not go straight up and down. For most women, it is angled toward the abdomen. If you put pressure there, you might feel like you have to pee. That’s because you’re essentially pressing against the urethra, and your brain is interpreting that sensation as a need to pee.

It might also be that pressure against the G-spot just hurts. If that’s true for you, there are a couple things that might be causing the pain. The first is the G-spot itself. You might be one of the women not wired for pleasurable G-spot stimulation. Don’t worry -- there are plenty of other ways for you to have an orgasm. It might also be that the pain is related not the to G-spot but to penetration itself. Friction burns and can cause irritation. A last source of pain might be inflammation or infection of the vagina. Yeast infections, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and other imbalances of the vaginal flora can cause burning, itching, and irritation
