General differences between clitoral and g-spot gels

General differences between clitoral and g-spot gels

toxie m toxie m
Reading reviews, it's often said that a stimulation gel or cream meant for the g-spot can also be used clitorally with good and similar effects. So, I got to thinking:

Is there a real and noticeable difference between g-spot and clitoral stimulation gels? Can they be used somewhat interchangeably? Or do g-spot creams work well on clitorises but not so much clitoral gels on g-spots?

Personally, I think it is just hype and the "placebo" effect. Physicians, male and female, OB-GYN, as well as other specialists, have found no evidence of the elusive "G-spot" Likewise neither me or my husband, have ever benefitted from these stimulation gells/creams that you speak of.

Some of the warming lubes do have a slight warming effect (at least on me). I bet that pretty much the g spot and clit stimulators are basically, or at least partially, the same.

Thanks for the reply. What do those specialists make of women who swear by their g-spot orgasms, I wonder. Hm.

I know many women who enjoy various products (labeled as either clitoral or g-spot) and I've tried quite a handful myself. I don't doubt that people have varying reactions of enjoyment with such products, I was more wondering whether there was any kind of official difference between products marketed for either area. Like, if g-spot gels are for the g-spot because they contain x-type of ingredient (or not) and because of this they're supposed to produce x-effect in that area, which it would not produce in another area. It could very well be that it's just marketing, but with the range of products out there I have to wonder if there is a real difference.

I have tried one clit stim gel and trust me. Waste of $20.
The Wet Synergy Warming did the same thing for less than that and a lot more product.
Most of them just warm. Simple as that.
total placebo effect.

Could you please cite the research proving that the G-spot doesn't exist? And don't refer to the twin study. That one was widely and loudly debunked.

I'm sorry that gel didn't work out for you. However, it was just one product. There are tons of products out there, some more effective than others (and every person's different, of course). I work in a B&M sex shop, so I've tried various stimulation gels and some of them are much better than others. If it was all placebo effect, wouldn't they all work equally well (or badly)? Just sayin'.

Also, lots of them cool/tingle, not just warm Agreed that the Wet Synergy is pretty good, though I definitely prefer the cooling version to the warming.

That said, if you do like warming, try ON 4 Her. I have seriously never tried a more effective stimulation gel than this. You need ONE drop and it lasts 40 minutes. As I said, I'm much more of a cooling than warming gal, so I was not a personal fan of the long-lasting hotness, but holy tamoly it is WAY more intense and tingly than any warming lube I've ever come across.

I kind of feel like I'm having to defend the entire category of stimulation gels in order to get back to my first question, hah. I realize that if you think that these products are all bullshit you might feel the original question becomes moot. However, I'm not sold that stimulation gels are completely placebo. Even assuming they are, what I'm asking is: are the two kinds of products different in any important way, regardless of how many people they over- or underwhelm.

It's not exactly scientific to call "placebo effect" just because some people react to something while others do not. A ticklish person's claims and reactions aren't invalid (or "all in their head") if someone else is not ticklish. Likewise, different women have different reactions to G-spot stimulation. For some it feels very good, others can't stand it, while still others don't feel much of anything.

As for the G-spot's existence, there's a lot of conflicting research: some tests have found physiological evidence of it, while others have not. And even then, a lack of visible physiological signs doesn't completely invalidate the physical sensations women receive from G-spot stimulation. (To use the same example, a ticklish person doesn't have any more nerve endings on their skin than someone who is not ticklish.)

Alas, I can't give any insight as to whether G-spot and clitoral gels are fundamentally the same or not. I've used clitoral gels and found at least one to be very nice, but I never tried using it internally, and I've never tried a G-spot gel.

I was wondering same thing if I could use my clitoral gel ( which works awesome is not warm just makes very sensitive) on the gspot which not say science is right or wrong cause I seen a video and me and hubby did exactly what the guy was showing and its there and I was soooo close and have squitef using gspot vibes but wanted to squirt from hubbys manual stimulation but do not wish to buy seperate gel when I have some
