I have some shocking news … Despite what’s often portrayed in movies and on TV, a lot of women can’t orgasm with penetration alone during sexual intercourse.

Although it’s the quintessential image of sexual success, orgasm during intercourse doesn’t happen for 60% of women.

Penis-in-vagina sex just can’t provide the direct clitoral stimulation that a woman needs to reach orgasm.

For the lucky few who can cum from penetration alone, most will be experiencing a deep spot orgasm.

What Is the Deep Spot?

The Deep spot, otherwise known as the Anterior Fornix Erogenous Zone, is located about four to five inches inside the vagina. Less known then the G-Spot, the A-Spot is just above the cervix.

There is some speculation around whether this particular spot actually exists. But most sex educators and experts agree it’s real, thanks to one experiment conducted in 1997. Dr. Chua Chee Ann began researching this area in the late ’80s and found that stroking the deep spot produces a lot of wetness and often will make a woman cum.

The Deep Spot Method

The deep spot is a smooth area located on the front wall (belly button side) of the vagina. To find it, start by inserting your lubricated fingers or her favorite wand vibrator about five inches into her pussy. Stay as close to the upper wall as possible to avoid bumping the cervix.

Use light, gentle strokes to begin and increase the pressure of stimulation when you know you’ve found it. The signs will be fairly obvious.

Deep penetration is necessary in order to hit the right spot during penetrative sex, which means using sex positions for G-spot stimulation work well. Three of the best choices are doggy style, cowgirl and reverse cowgirl.

Doggy-style is super hot. To improve the chances of giving your partner a deep spot orgasm, have her lie flat on her stomach with a pillow under her hips. This gives you even deeper penetration, allowing the head of your cock to more easily reach that sweet spot inside of her vagina.

The classic cowgirl position or woman on top sex also works well. However, instead of her leaning forward or remaining upright, have your partner lean back.

This simple twist allows you to slide easily to the anterior fornix. You’ll know you’re there when you bottom out and feel her cervix touching the underside of your penis.

While she’s leaning back, you have two free hands, one of which should be playing with her clit.

According to a study in The Journal Of Sexual Medicine, the likelihood of a deep spot orgasm is directly related to the length of the session. Ten to fifteen minutes is ideal.

So there you have it.

Maybe your partner can have a vaginal orgasm and that is awesome. Maybe she can’t, but you discover 67 new ways to make her cum in the process. That’s a win too.
