What You Need to Know about Point A

Where is point A?

The A-point is a vulnerable area on the ventral side of the cervix, between the anterior vaginal wall and the cervical crest. Because it is protected by the cervix, this area remains particularly sensitive. Unlike direct stimulation of the cervix (which can be uncomfortable for many people), touching the anterior fornix usually causes an immediate sensation of pleasure. It's important to note that if you have a cervix, you also have a posterior fornix. While I personally love the feel of both places, personal preferences may differ. Unless specifically searched for or discovered during large-scale penetration, these areas may go unnoticed. As a vulva owner with a size preference, I find the A-spot to be just as pleasurable as the G-spot, if not more so.

“After constantly incorporating clitoral stimulation into intercourse and realizing that it enhanced my orgasms during PIV, I began to notice extraordinary pleasure from deep penetration. It occurred to me that this might be the anterior fornix I had read about . Once I made that connection, I started exploring sex toys designed to do just that on my own and did extensive research on the subject."

In a context where standard sex education often ignores full coverage, pays little attention to the clitoris, and debates the existence of the G-spot within the urethral sponge, the anterior and posterior fornixes receive little attention.

I began to notice how wet I would get with deep penetration at certain points near my cervix. The increase in humidity is accompanied by a warm, calm, euphoric feeling throughout my body. Realizing this isn't common or widely discussed, so I dug deeper.

There is a significant gap in the discussion surrounding point A. “Ancient texts rooted in Eastern philosophy document the many erogenous zones within the vagina…However, their exploration is uncommon due to a lack of discussion. Sex educators often shy away from the topic because there is not enough scientific research to support it. Printed literature is available for them to refer to. Still, we know it exists."

Point A and point G

It is crucial to differentiate between the A-spot and the G-spot as they are very close together in the abdomen and can be confusing. While these two areas often produce pleasurable sensations for vaginal canal sufferers, the experiences can be very different.

Effective communication about what feels good or bad is crucial. "I've had partners who mistakenly thought it was my G-spot, even though I explicitly requested deeper stimulation during intimate moments. Some even questioned whether I might have it after explaining that the G-spot was my A-spot An unusually deep G-spot. As someone who regularly explores both places, I can clearly feel the different sensations each place gives me."

So how to stimulate point A?

A-spot stimulation can be achieved using a variety of tools, I recommend using your hands as your fingers can provide deliberate pressure and a steady rhythm to the A-spot. For some, the psychological aspect of having a partner finger-tapping to orgasm is even more stimulating.

Achieving orgasm through the A-spot alone is uncommon, as more than 75% of vulvas are unable to orgasm through penetration alone. A-spot stimulation helps bring about orgasms, increased moisture, and a pleasurable feeling of tightness. Combining A-spot stimulation with clitoral play enhances the experience. Curved toys and wide, thick options effectively reach and stimulate the A-spot, providing internal expansion and access to both the anterior and posterior fornixes. You can choose this toy to find and stimulate the A-spot. Or choose some toy on ooty website.

Sex positions for the A-spot

"Positioning by shortening the vagina and bringing the legs closer to the abdomen or chest can help the penetrating partner find the area more easily," I suggest. “I also recommend the ‘slab’ position so you can easily find your spot.”

When trying to stimulate your A-spot with a cock or a strap-on, it may not be as intuitive as using your hands or other types of toys. Positions that allow for deep penetration, such as doggy style or lifted missionary (using pillows to lift your hips off the bed or placing your legs on your partner's shoulders) may help.

"While deep in the vagina, explore the 'slippery' spot on the front wall...almost immediately, the vagina will become moist and a euphoric sensation will occur, bringing relief and arousal," I suggest. "The penetrating partner may need to move slightly to the right or left, or even move the partner's legs to one side or the other, to make it easier to get into the position. Patience is key."

It's important to realize that not everyone enjoys A-spot stimulation, just like not all vulva owners enjoy G-spot stimulation. “I know a lot of people who love it, and I know a lot of people who have tried it and been ‘bored’ by it,” Sloan commented. "I think, like anything else, it works for some people and not for others."

Additionally, it is important not to forcefully penetrate the back of the vaginal canal in order to achieve orgasm. "Sex with someone 'too deep' may be painful or uncomfortable due to the cervix," You probably shouldn't fuck someone deep and hard unless you know they like that.

However, if the idea of exploring this sensitive area excites you, then there's a good chance you'll enjoy discovering all the pleasurable sensations it has to offer - whether alone or with a partner. “A-spot stimulation is a technique that promotes simultaneous orgasm for both partners,” advises those seeking a synchronized orgasmic experience. "Want to come together? Touch that A-spot."
