While many people call it the gspot, Gräfenberg, never referred to it that way, rather, he just described it as a sensitive, sexual area. In his work, he sited that women have many places on her body that can promote sexual arousal beyond the clitoris. However, the gspot finally got some well deserved attention. After all, it is similar to the male prostate, which we know induces pleasure and secretes a similar fluid. This is known as the Skene's gland (A.K.A. paraurethral gland), found in ALL females.
However, some women have thicker tissue in front of the female prostate which means that it makes it's presence more pronounced and easier to find. It also allows for more pressure to be placed on it when a penis, finger or sex toy is pressing against it. Therefore, it would logically make sense that those women that have more tissue in front of the female prostate would be more prone to vaginal orgasm than those with not as much tissue.
When you look at a woman as a whole than you can see her sexual functioning more clearly. All women have a gspot, however, the sensitivity of that gspot, the mass of tissue in front of it and the size of those glands are all variables. A woman will have to determine if she has high or low sensitivity and work with what she has. Should she not find much pleasure through gspot stimulation, then certainly vaginal stimulation is still an over all pleasurable sensation, especially when enhanced with clitoral stimulation.
Dr. Helen O'Connell, a well-known Australian researcher, feels that the gspot is connected to the vagina, clitoris and urethra to make up a "clitoral complex." It has recently been determined that the clitoris is shaped like a wish bone and extends through the vaginal walls and contracts during sexual arousal. This has led some researchers to think that rather than there being a gspot, it is a continuation of the clitoris even though the clitoris is not located there.
In a Rutgers University study, it was shown through an MRI test, that the cervix, clitoris and vagina stimulated distinct areas of the women's sensory cortex in her brain. What was interesting was that each woman's brain sensed the distinct stimulation of each area, including the area of the vaginal wall where the gspot is located.
On a side note the paraurethral glands (Skene's glands), were officially renamed the female prostate by the Federative International Committee on Anatomical Terminology in 2002.
Stimulating the gspot to achieve female ejaculation is usually necessary in order to experience it, however, a woman can simply be sexually aroused and push it out. The gspot (female prostate) fill up with fluid through sexual stimulation and once filled. It does not require an orgasm in order to experience it. However, having it occur with an orgasm can be quite an amazing sensation.
The medical community continues neglect women's sexuality by not further examining female ejaculation with more research. This is most likely due to the strong association people have to this beautiful female sexual function as pornographic or as a bogus myth that it is urine. One would think we are still living in the dark ages when many scientists, researchers and medical professionals resist being linked to women's sexual functioning for fear of being thought of as supporting what the porn industry has been marketing for years as 'squirting, gushing, and spraying ejaculate.'
The truth is that female ejaculation does exist, however, it can sometimes be mixed with urine through what is termed as retrograde ejaculation, where the ejaculate fluid is expelled by the gspot and travels into the urethra. It then can be mixed with urine in the urethra and come out together. It can also come out by itself and that is why you have many different stories about what it is and what it is not.

Techniques For Locating The Gspot
A woman should lay on her back and bring her knees up to her chest. From this position you can use your fingers to feel for it by pressing up into the area. If you have difficulty reaching it, then you might want to use a gspot style dildo that will help you to reach. One of the easiest is the Hitachi Magic wand with the gspotter attachment. You can also have a partner use their fingers to press upward into the area. There are of course other positions that you can get into such as the doggie position, however, it may be easier for women to turn upside down on the bed and put their feet up against the headboard to hold the position while they search for it and learn to stimulate it.
Stimulation Through Use of Fingers
The best way to find it is to first use fingers remembering that the gspot responds more so to pressure rather than just a superficial rubbing. Moving your fingers up into the gspot can provide enhanced pleasure and intensity of sexual arousal. Using your finger in a 'come here' motion is the most common way to stimulate the gspot, however, we have a comprehensive article on the subject if you would like more information on how to "finger".
As your fingers may become tired after a while of doing this, we recommend using a finger vibrator, gspot vibrator or dildo in addition to the possibility of penile penetration as a way of providing continued stimulation to her and relief for your fingers. Gspot vibrators also help to stimulate blood flow to the area and make sensations more pleasurable.
