G-Spot Vibrators: What Are They And How Do You Use Them?

G-spot vibrators are sex toys uniquely designed to stimulate the “G-spot” inside the vagina, but can also be used in other creative ways solo or with a partner.

A G-spot vibrator is a motorized sex toy specifically designed to hit the infamous (and often thought to be mythical) Gräfenberg spot, better known as the G-spot.

Depending on a person’s anatomy and preferences, the G-spot can be an intense area for sexual pleasure, particularly during orgasm, but that’s not the only thing a G-spot vibrator can stimulate!

You can often use them on the:

  • Vulva
  • Clitoris
  • Labia
  • Nipples
  • Anus (externally)
  • Labiocrural fold (where the outer labia meet the inner thighs)
  • Frenulum (located beneath the head of the penis)
  • Perineum (located between the genitals and anus)
  • Any other erogenous zones that enjoy vibrational stimulation

If you aren’t familiar with G-spot-specific stimulation, maybe it’s time you gave it a whirl with a vibrator dedicated to specifically stimulating it!

Editor’s Note: This article is part of our How To Use A Vibrator and Everything Vibrators hubs, in-depth and evolving resources that comprehensively explore all aspects of vibrators from the different types and how to use them, to materials and safety — created to help you achieve the sexual pleasure you deserve.

What Is A G-Spot Vibrator?

G-spot vibrators, also known as G-spot massagers, are sex toys designed to solve that most irksome of biological predicaments — that unless you’re a contortionist, it isn’t possible to reach your own G-spot while lying on your back.

Cruel fate, why do you mock us?

That’s why a G-spot massager is the perfect tool for the job.

Usually, they’re similar to dildos or other sex toys that are elongated — even phallic — except for one thing: they’ve got a curve.

G-spot vibrators are curved in a way that allows the user to better position the vibrator to reach the Gräfenberg spot easily — and for maximum enjoyment.

G-spot vibrators can offer many features that may include:

  • Multiple speed settings and vibration intensities
  • Bendable flexibility for greater personal customization
  • Texture for added stimulation
  • Robotic movement with a “come-hither” motion
  • A skin-like finish to the material (usually soft silicone)
  • Being rechargeable
  • Being waterproof for use in the bath or shower
  • Having a heated shaft for temperature play
  • Having a thrusting shaft for deeper stimulation
  • Offering different “head” sizes for varied stimulation
  • Remote or app control for hands-free use

Like most vibes, these can range in length from a wee 3” to 6” or even longer, depending on the toy’s design.

Because they’re meant to be inserted vaginally, G-spot vibrators also offer varied girths to choose from —  ranging from the diameter of a fountain pen on up to say, an impressive cucumber.

With that in mind, we recommend starting somewhere in the middle if you’re brand new to G-spot vibrators.

Although many (if not most) G-spot vibrators provide deeper, rumbly vibrations and are used inside the vagina, they can be fairly quiet during use — but not always.

If you’re concerned about your toys’ noise level, a handy trick is to turn it on, put it under your blanket (or small pillow), walk out of the room — and close the door behind you.

What you hear on the other side of the door will give you a better sense of how loud your vibrator actually is, at least as far as anyone who may be walking by is concerned.

The price of G-spot vibrators varies, but there’s something to meet any price point no matter where you purchase your vibrator.

At Adam & Eve, a retailer we personally reviewed and trust, G-spot vibrators range from about $13 on sale to just under $200.

Regardless of your preferences and budget, there’s a perfect G-spot vibrator for everyone seeking expert internal stimulation right where they need it.

How To Use A G-Spot Vibrator

There are multiple ways to use G-spot massagers, depending on what kind of stimulation works best for you.

My best advice?

Experiment with your vibrator in a no-pressure situation — likely while you’re alone and definitely not when your partner is present and expecting you to climax in a timely way.

Depending on how adjustable your G-spot massager is, you may have options for intensity and vibe patterns so it’s a good idea to cycle through those before you begin, just to become familiar with how it all works.

Start slow and low before adding pressure, stronger vibes, or a more assertive pattern as needed — and don’t forget to use a quality water-based lube.

Many (if not most) G-spot vibrators are crafted from silicone, which will degrade when used with a silicone-based lubricant.

Remember, too, that you can use your vibrator on more than just your G-spot!

Some G-spotters, like the Hot Octopuss Kurve — which I personally reviewed (and loved!) — have a soft exterior that’s amazing for clitoral stimulation.

You can use a G-spot vibrator to stimulate the:

  • Vulva and labia
  • Clitoris
  • Nipples
  • Anus (externally)
  • Labiocrural fold (where the outer labia and inner thighs meet)
  • Frenulum (under the head of the penis)
  • Perineum ( between the genitals and anus)
  • Any other erogenous zones that turn you on

If you are using your G-spot vibrator to stimulate your anus, make sure to clean your toy before inserting it back inside your vagina or using it on any other area of your body.

How To Use A G-Spot Vibrator For Masturbation

The first step to using a G-spot vibrator involves finding your G-spot.

If you have a vulva, you have a G-spot.

While it certainly isn’t a supreme pleasure center for everyone, it’s one that many find worth investigating.

The G-spot is thought to be the internal extension of the clitoris, which may be why it’s easier to locate the G-spot during arousal.

The G-spot is located about 2.5 to 3 inches inside the vagina, along the upper wall of the vaginal canal, closest to the stomach. It may feel somewhat firm to the touch, or even textured or bumpy.

It’s best to stimulate the G-spot after you’re already aroused.

As we mentioned earlier, the G-spot is considered to be an extension of the clitoris and as such, is more receptive to stimulation when engorged.

For most people with vulvas, how to use a G-spot vibrator for maximum pleasure is a matter of experimentation.

We suggest experimenting with a variety of angles, pressure levels, and movements to see what works best for you. If you relax and stay in the moment, your body will likely show you the way.

Don’t pressure yourself, either.

Your first session with a G-spot massager doesn’t have to end in complete ecstasy. It doesn’t have to end in orgasm at all.

In addition to pleasure, masturbation can simply be about getting to know your body so your next experience is even better. It’s a process.

​​How Can Couples Use G-Spot Vibrators?

There are some creative ways that couples can use G-spot vibrators together.

As we mentioned earlier, a G-spot vibrator can be used on far more than just the G-spot.

Our bodies are covered in erogenous zones — regardless of gender or sexual orientation — and G-spot vibes can stimulate and tease just about all of them in one way or another.

Particularly if crafted from soft, skin-like silicone, a G-spot vibrator can be used against a partner’s neck, nipples, stomach, inner thighs, shoulders, and genitals during partnered play.

A G-spot vibrator can be used during one-sided or mutual masturbation, as well. For extra spice, one partner can use it on the other while the person on the receiving end of the stimulation is blindfolded.

Additionally, a G-spot vibrator can be inserted vaginally to provide deep stimulation during cunnilingus.

These ideas are just the tip of a very large iceberg — let your imagination be your guide and experiment with one another!

How Can You Use A G-Spot Vibrator During Sex?

Generally speaking, most phallic G-spot massagers aren’t great for use during intercourse, unless they are inserted vaginally during anal sex while exploring double penetration.

But they can be awesome to use on a partner with a vulva, providing external stimulation of the clitoris during penetrative sex.

Having said that, there are some couples’ vibes designed to stimulate the G-spot during intercourse, like the We-Vibe Chorus.

Toys of this nature typically feature a narrow, somewhat flat shaft that’s inserted vaginally, providing stimulation to both partners during use.

We know couples who swear by G-spot vibrators made for intercourse.

This type of sex toy can be expensive, however, so we recommend getting to know your G-spot before deciding whether or not to invest in one.

  • Do You Need Lube With A G-Spot Vibrator?

Yes.

What is a G-spot vibrator without lube? A recipe for discomfort.

It’s always a good idea to use lube when you try any sex toy for the first time — and you’ll likely use it all the time. Refer to the manual that came with your new vibe for compatible lube recommendations.

It’s essential to use a lubricant that’s compatible with your toy. This is especially important since many G-spot vibrators are crafted from silicone — which degrades when used with silicone lubricant.

If you’re in doubt or unsure of your vibrator’s material, a water-based lubricant is going to be the safest option.

Can You Put A G-Spot Vibrator In Your Anus?

We don’t advise doing that — no.

Technically, any object can be an anal sex toy if you’re sufficiently motivated — but that doesn’t make it a good idea.

Anal toys, which can include curved sex toys used for prostate stimulation, have a flared base to prevent internal displacement. The flared or wider base keeps them from being pulled inside the anus entirely.

Losing a sex toy inside the anus just will not sit right with anyone. Pun intended.

If you don’t want to have an embarrassing conversation with a triage nurse, use care to ONLY use anal toys specifically designed for that purpose.

And that means keeping your G-spot vibrator out of your anus.

That said, you can use it to tease your anus externally — just make sure to clean it thoroughly before inserting it into your vagina or using it elsewhere on your body.

Are G-Spot Vibrators Safe?

Yes.

We’d never recommend their use if they weren’t.

As long as they’re crafted from body-safe materials like silicone or ABS plastic and aren’t being used anally, they’re entirely safe.

G-spot vibrator materials that should be avoided include:

  • Rubber and jelly rubber
  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
  • TPR/TPE blends
  • Other porous materials that can be difficult to clean

If you’re looking for a bargain on a new G-spot vibrator, keep in mind that less expensive products may contain unsafe chemicals or be made from potentially toxic materials.

Desensitization is a concern for some vibrator users, but it needn’t be. It would take a hilariously long time to cause permanent desensitization (nerve damage) with a vibrator.

If you feel like you’re losing sensitivity from overuse, take a break for a bit.

In Conclusion

The G-spot is considered a “mythical” beast to some, but if you’ve got a vagina, you’ve got a G-spot.

It might not be a source of toe-curling pleasure — it isn’t for everyone, and that’s okay! — but if you enjoy G-spot stimulation, there are plenty of vibrators that will hit the right spot, every time you need them to.

Once you master the basics of how to use a G-spot vibrator, you may find yourself wanting to explore the larger world of sex toys.
