Imaging research and surveys done on twins have failed to find an actual organ, or distinct part of the anatomy, responsible for all that pleasure. Plus, not all women report having G-spots, or being able to find one on themselves.
What does this mean? Well, that new research is pointing to the idea that instead of there being a particular spot or button that causes orgasms, the clitoris, urethra, and front side of the vaginal wall all work together as a “clitourethrovaginal complex.” When all three are stimulated just right, it can result in what some people refer to as a vaginal orgasm (aka a G-spot orgasm). Tell your partner not to retire that “come hither” motion just yet.
7. Tip! Pee after sex to avoid urinary tract infections.

9. There are 8000 nerve endings in the clitoris alone... The penis has 4000.
10. Feeling like you have to pee during sex, even though you just went? That’s actually normal. Here's why:
About that clitourethrovaginal complex… well, it can mean that sometimes your partner might be stimulating your urethra (or even bladder) during sex, which can potentially make you feel like you’ve gotta pee.
There’s also a thing called nerve cross-talk, which is where so much is going on down there that your nerves can become confused about what exactly it is they’re experiencing. It might feel like you have to pee, but you’re actually just becoming aroused. Phew!
11. About half of all American women use vibrators.
In fact, a nationally representative study of 3,800 women between the ages of 18 and 60 in the United States shows that nearly half of the women had used a vibrator for (continued)
