How to Hit the G-Spot (Part 2) – Guy on Top

…And we’re back! 

It’s time for part two of our three-part series on how to hit G-spot during sex. 

If you haven’t read part one yet, that’s okay. You don’t really need to read them in order, although that post does have far more information about what the G-spot actually is.

As a reminder, the G-spot is an erogenous zone in the vagina that, when stimulated, can lead to pretty intense orgasms. Or so everyone claims, because its existence has never officially been proven. Some experts believe it may actually be a part of our clitoral network.

In any case, touching it feels good, and for some women, it can lead to fireworks – which is of course why I so valiantly volunteered to take part in this blogging experiment. Keep reading to discover how part two went!

Best guy-on-top positions for G-spot stimulation

For this post, our focus is guy-on-top positions. Just like last time, we spent a week or so trying various positions that different magazines and online publications had recommended in order to experience that elusive G-spot orgasm.

Keep in mind as you read through the positions that only 18% of women can achieve orgasm through penetration, so don’t feel disheartened if you don’t get the results you’re expecting. Besides, the destination is only half the fun – the journey is just as entertaining!

Doggy style

How the article told us to do it: Get on your hands and knees, and have your partner enter you from behind while they kneel. In this position, your partner’s penis is naturally tilted slightly downward, allowing it to rub up against your G-spot as a result. 

Depending on how your bodies line up, you may need to adjust the position a little – don’t be scared to spread your legs further apart, or pull them closer together. You may want to lean further down and rest on your forearms as well, or your partner could stand upright off the bed if need be.

What happened: To be honest, not an out-of-the-ordinary position for us. Although, as I have the hormonal IUD contraceptive (aka the Mirena), it often ends up being not as fun as it used to be. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, the tip of his dick hits the ‘string’ and it gives me cramps…and often kills his boner). Suffice to say, it was one of the better experiences with the position, but no I didn’t feel any G-spot action. 

Steve’s thoughts: Decent position, but the IUD feels like someone’s shoved a pipe cleaner down my pee-hole.

Legs up

How the article told us to do it: Get into missionary position. Have your partner sit up so that they’re crouching on their knees. Lift your legs up one at a time and rest your ankles on their shoulders. This position creates really deep, powerful penetration. 

But if you’re not super flexible, you can try wrapping your legs around your partner’s waist instead, or have one leg on their shoulder and the other resting flat on the bed. Your partner can also experiment with sitting more upright or leaning forward and bending you over even more.

What happened: Another fairly common position for us – although how long we last in it purely depends on how limber I’m feeling. I have a hip impingement, so they don’t like being bent that way for long. The good thing is there’s some variations – you don’t have to put your ankles on their shoulders if you’re not flexible enough. Sometimes I’ll hold my legs up with my hands so they’re resting somewhere around his lats. 

As for G-spot action? I could definitely feel it compared to other positions, but given the hip problems I can’t maintain it long enough to feel anything beyond a nice tingling.

Steve’s thoughts: Definitely a favourite.

X marks the spot

How the article told us to do it: Find a bed or sturdy table that’s roughly hip height for your partner. Hop onto the surface and have them stand between your legs. Lie flat on your back and cross your legs in front of your partner, so they make an X. You can balance your ankles on their shoulders or they can hold onto them for you. 

Crossing your legs creates a tight fit and being on your back allows for the natural upward curvature of an erection to stroke against your G-spot. You can experiment with deep vs shallow thrusting or have your partner pull you closer to find out what works best.

What happened: Without a doubt, my favourite of this series of positions. I was comfortable, and the crossed legs definitely helped with the sensations. I got to lie back and enjoy Steve’s hard work. Still didn’t hit the finish line, but I feel like if it was going to happen, it’d be this position. 

Steve’s thoughts: Be careful what surface you do this on – my shins kept bashing into the counter.

The snake

How the article told us to do it: Lie down on your stomach, and have your partner lie down on top of you and slide in from behind. You can adjust the angle by raising your hips higher or lower (or throwing a pillow under them).

A version of doggy style, this position offers a better angle to reach your vagina’s anterior wall and therefore rub against your G-spot. You should experience deep penetration and a snug fit that provides the regular contact with your G-spot you’ll need to reach the finish line.

What happened: No dice. Plus I felt like I had to raise my butt for it to work, which puts pressure on my lower back.

Steve’s thoughts: It’s a nice variation with a tighter fit.

The wheelbarrow

How the article told us to do it: Exactly like it sounds. Get on your hands and feet and have your partner stand between your legs. He’ll then pick you up by the pelvis and enter you. Grip his waist with your thighs to stay in position.

If you get tired, simply rest on a table or the side of the bed to give your arms a break – but it shouldn’t take long to hit your G-spot in this position.

What happened: Funny, and actually felt pretty good – but ridiculous and gave me a headache as the blood rushed to my head.

Steve’s thoughts: Far too complicated. 

Final thoughts

So once again I didn’t have a G-spot orgasm. One thing that has become clear during this experiment is that sex puts a lot of strain on the joints – maybe I’d have had better luck ten years ago! 

But no big deal, I’ve got a whole collection of sex toys to help me get there. Plus, there’s a few more to try in the next installment, even wilder than the wheelbarrow.
