G-spot vibrators: What are they and how do you use one?

In the wonderful world of vibrators, there are many different styles to suit a number of needs and wants.

Some of the most common sex toys include wand vibrators, the rabbit and bullet vibrator, clitoral stimulators and cock rings — and all of these vibrators target different areas, depending on whether you're interested in internal, external, clitoral or penis stimulation.

For people with vulvas, the G-spot vibrator is designed specifically to target this area. Thanks to pop culture and less-than-extensive sex education in school, finding the G-spot has become the butt of many jokes. It's regarded as an elusive part of the body that is almost impossible to locate and stimulate.

Thankfully, this isn't completely true. Granted, for some people, G-spot stimulation might not equal intense pleasure, while for others it does.

The important thing to note here is that a G-spot vibrator makes it easy to explore this area of your body and allows you to be in control of your own pleasure.

To help you navigate this section of sex toys, we've created a guide with everything you need to know.

Here's how to use a G-spot vibrator, how to clean them, how much you can expect to pay for a device, and exactly how to find your G-spot.

What is a G-spot vibrator?

 

A G-spot vibrator is designed to stimulate the G-spot — a zone of sensitive tissue that is part of the clitoral network. Typically, they'll have a wand-like shape with a slight curve that lends itself to stimulating this often pleasurable part of the body. For those who experience pleasure via the G-spot, a vibrator that stimulates this area is created with the intention to help you reach orgasm.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to these vibrators but generally, these devices are designed for both internal and external stimulation and often don't include a separate arm for clitoral stimulation (like a rabbit vibrator does). While a dildo or standard wand vibrator is longer and created for deeper internal stimulation, the G-spot vibrator is a little shorter in length, lending itself to different uses.

Many of these vibrators, like NORMAL's Darcy, are made from medical-grade silicone, which also means the device is waterproof and can be used in the shower and bath for up to 30 minutes. Darcy is also USB rechargeable and takes two hours to reach its full charge, before it's good to go for multiple sessions.

Price-wise, these vibrators range from $100 to $300, depending on their features. Our Darcy comes in at $195.

The difference between a G-spot vibrator and a dildo

 

At first glance, there might not be a huge number of visual differences between a G-spot toy and a dildo, but upon closer inspection, you begin to see the design contrasts.

The major point of difference is the fact that a traditional dildo doesn't vibrate. There is no mechanism or batteries included in a dildo to make it vibrate, instead, a dildo requires you or a partner to move it.

While it might lack an internal motor, dildos can be used in a few different ways. You can penetrate a partner with the dildo, or for solo play, thrust onto the dildo, or use your hand to replicate the same motion.

G-spot vibrators, on the other hand, include batteries and electrical components that make them vibrate, and good ones will offer different vibration modes and speeds to suit a variety of preferences.

Vibrators like these lend themselves to be used for penetration and G-spot stimulation, while the shape is also specifically designed for external use as well and can be used on the vulva, nipples, or for clitoral stimulation.

The different sensations coupled with the vibrating motion also takes some of the work out of the experience, so all you need to do is guide the G-spot toy where it feels best versus using your hand or body to thrust an analogue device like a dildo. Both devices can be used for partnered sex.

A guide to finding your G-spot

 

The mystery surrounding the G-spot is understandable, but it doesn't have to be intimidating! In fact, the G-spot is basically just a bunch of tissues and nerves located along the front wall of the vagina.

The easiest way to locate the G-spot is by laying down and doing a little self-exploration.

To start, try stimulating different erogenous zones to warm up your body. When you're ready to move on to try and locate the G-spot, begin by gently inserting one to two fingers into the vaginal canal, making sure your palm is facing up. Then, with your fingers, make a "come here" motion along the front wall in the direction of your belly button.

Stimulating this area will cause the tissue to swell and this is the famous G-spot. There isn't a wrong or right way to do this; you're simply feeling out the area and seeing whether it feels pleasurable or not. Each body is different and as such, will elicit a different response.

Repeating this movement might initially make you feel like you have to pee — this is a completely normal response. For some, this can subside quite quickly, with a pleasurable feeling taking its place, while others might continue to feel the urination sensation.

For those experiencing a pleasure response, if you continue to repeat the "come here" motion with your fingers, the cervix begins to push down into the vagina and the feeling will continue to build until it finishes with an orgasm, though many will also need clitoral stimulation to get there.

At this point, up to 50 per cent of people with vulvas release some sort of fluid from their urethra.

There are three types of fluid that are released — the most well known is ejaculate, but urine and a diluted form of urine are also common. Not all vulva owners can produce the ejaculate, but G-spot stimulation can cause this bodily response in some people. If you don't ejaculate, it doesn't mean you are doing something wrong — this bodily response happens for some but not everyone.

As well as using your hands or G-spot sex toys, the G-spot can also be stimulated through sex but you should know that experiencing a vaginal orgasm isn't possible for everyone and there's nothing wrong with you if this is the case.

When engaging in partnered sex, consider trying positions like cowgirl or doggy style, which are known to best stimulate this erogenous zone and could help you achieve a vaginal orgasm.

How to use a G-spot vibrator, a step-by-step guide

 

Using a G-spot vibrator is super straightforward once you get the hang of it, so here is a handy guide that will demystify the process and make it second nature in no time, so you can get yourself off with little fuss.

Clean and charge your toy

Before the first use, start by charging and cleaning your G-spot toy so you can dive in as soon as you're ready. It's best practice to clean your sex toys after each use and make sure to regularly charge your device so you're never greeted with a low battery, because that is not a fun time.

Set the mood

Once your vibrator is clean and fully charged, it's time to set the mood. This is all down to personal preference, but you might like to try dimming the lights or switching them off completely if that's your vibe. Consider popping on some music or lighting a scented candle.

This is also a great time to engage with stimuli, which could include pornography or erotica, to focus your mind. Let your worries and the events of the day subside and focus on what feels good.

Warm up your body

Next, start by warming up your body. You can start by touching less sensitive erotic zones before moving onto areas like the vulva, anus or clitoris. When you're ready to move internally, you can start with your hands or switch to your vibrator.

Try it with some lube

At this point, you can apply your favourite water-based lubricant to your toy should you want to. Then, hold your G-spot vibrator at the entrance of the vagina and when you're ready, move it inside.

To stimulate your G-spot, insert the vibrator one to three inches and turn the device so the head is facing the top of the vagina and move the vibrator in a "come here" motion like you would your fingers.

Work out what feels good

Everyone is different, so this is the time to experiment with what feels good for you. Apply various levels of pressure to the area, and switch up angles and vibration patterns to see what feels good. Darcy has eight modes, which includes three increasing speeds and five different vibration patterns.

Try it with a clitoris vibrator

At the same time, you can also try touching or stroking other erogenous zones like the nipples or anus. For added clitoris stimulation, use your fingers or if you can manage two devices, consider adding in a clitoral vibrator like NORMAL's Quinn, which replicates a similar feeling to oral sex.

While a G-spot vibrator is designed to stimulate the tissue on the top wall of the vagina, it can also be used externally as well. Normal's Darcy vibrator is double-sided, with a slimmer arm and a rounded head, the latter of which can be used in foreplay to warm up other erogenous zones.

The Darcy also allows penetration of two people at one time, or one partner can control the device while it's inside the other. With lubricant and clear communication, you can use it in a number of ways.

Cleaning and storing your G-spot vibrator

 

Cleaning your G-spot vibrator after each use is very important. Not only do you want to ensure that it's ready for next time, but you also want to prevent any bacteria build-up that could possibly cause infection.

And, keeping your device clean and taking proper care of your vibe will help increase the life of your product.

Clean after every use with a dedicated sex toy cleaning spray — like the NORMAL Toy & Hand Cleaning Spray — or simply wipe with soap and warm water. Be sure to avoid submerging your G-spot vibrator in water and please, do not put it in the dishwasher, microwave or washing machine.

Once it's dry, store your device in a clean, cool and dry place. Each NORMAL order includes a complimentary reversible collection bag (it's basically a drawstring pouch!) that is a great place to store your Darcy G-spot vibrator.

The bag comes with a printed pattern on one side and a plain, more subtle design on the inside, so you can store it with either facing out depending on your vibe.
