G for G-spot #AtoZchallenge #NSFW

Hi!  I’ll do a proper introduction later, but I’m River.  River Harlequin.  Most people call me Harle (Har-lee) though.
I’m supposedly smart, a bit sassy and though I write Happily Ever After’s (HEA) and Happily Ever for Now (HEFN), I’m not adverse to making them work for it.  And making my readers root for them.  I like to think I get the balance right, but I guess we’ll see.
My début novel is coming soon, and is called ‘Mr Right (Now)’, but for now, I thought I’d talk about the G-spot.  Or at least, some of the fun stuff that’s linked to it.  This post is, by virtue of the discussion, not safe for work and could be offensive to some.  Please stop right here if that’s a problem for you.  There are some great other posts on the blog that you may enjoy more.

The sciencey part

I’m a pro-g-spot believer btw.  I know there are G-spot deniers, but I view them much like  conspiracy theorists.  A bit nutty, and maybe sorta grounded in fact, but probably not.  So yes, pro-g-spot, and being a girl, mighty glad that it exists.
What it is, is a patch or area inside the vaginal walls where nerves end, and when stimulated, creates orgasms a cut above the rest.  It’s not easy to stimulate for some – for others, it causes  orgasms so hard, that the woman ‘squirts’.  What everyone agrees on – not everyone feels the same or reacts the same, so it’s absolutely ok that some people have never encountered it. It doesn’t make it anny less real though.

The not so sciencey part

So, the G-spot must be a really important weapon in the arsenal of the writer, writing about relationships and sex huh?  You’d think.

Lately, something I’ve noticed in every erotica book I’ve read – the orgasms are  body-slamming, knee weakening. soaking-the-bed-wet orgasms, but I have also noticed that there’s no specific reference to the g-spot.  Kinda makes me wonder if the women in these stories would cope with g-gasms.

Here’s the thing though – I think it’s very difficult to talk about the g-spot.  Not because it’s something that’s still being debated over, but because to reach it, with fingers, can be very difficult.   And though there are some very lucky women who have men endowed to reach that spot, many people don’t – not without a lot of practice and to be in the right state of mind and all sorts.

Do I think that the g-spot has a place in erotic fiction?

Is the sky blue?  I do believe it has it’s place – and I’ve seen it handled really skillfully, either implicitly or explicitly, by some writers, but I also see a lot of writing that could do with dialling back.  Every orgasm doesn’t have to be the type that leaves her unable to walk and seeing stars, and him manfully falling asleep after five minutes.  Not every orgasm has to be coronary worthy.  And not every orgasm has to feature the g-spot.  Just…don’t forget it’s there.

  1. Oh yeah. It’s there and it’s real. And I think I’ve actually made reference to it in some of my work. Matter of fact, I know I have. I’m not sure now you can write erotica and not make reference to it at some point in time. Unless, of course, you’re a guy, and then maybe it’s not really important to you.

    Thanks for the great post, River. Can’t wait to read your novel!

    • The G-spot certainly ought to be important to any man with a bit of sense.
