It’s the magical unicorn of a man’s naughty bits; it’s the perineum. But what magic does this space hold and why (and where is it exactly)? Let’s unpack all the deets on the male G-Spot, or the P-Spot, as it’s oft called (even though it sounds like R. Kelly’s nightclub), so that every man can experience intense, long orgasms.

What (and Where) is the Perineum?

The perineum takes up residence between the anus and the testicles. This small diamond-shaped area is full of concentrated nerve endings, making it a 5-star erogenous zone for both men and women. Because it’s rarely touched and has all of those nerve endings, perineum sensitivity is high compared to that of the penis, which gets much more regular attention. While people have known about the area since, presumably, the dawn of time, only recently has it been talked about openly, and usually as the P-Spot – a play off the female orgasm factory, the G-Spot. This area is also known as the “taint.”

Did I Hear You Right…More Intense Orgasms?

Perineum sensitivity has been shown to bring men more frequent and intense orgasms. The perineum is so sensitive that it can be aroused in many different ways. Let’s look at a few.

Poking the P-Spot

Well, don’t actually poke it. Here are a few ways men or their partners can produce prolific P-Spot pleasure:

- It’s all in the hands. Apply a few drops of lube to the index and middle fingers and then very gently circle the perineum, playing with light pressure and speed. Some people also like a playful, pinching movement that’s gentle but effective.

- Good Vibrations. On low speed (seriously, start on low), slide a small vibrator just slightly beneath the perineum during solo or partner play to experience a next-level release that would make any man see stars.

- Add it to oral. Pay the P-Spot some attention with light licks, weighted tongue flicking and circling, and breathing on and applying suction to the area. The partner that does this will likely gain the #1 Lover spot fast.

- Intensify intercourse. During sex, a partner can reach the perineum back to front (the area near the anus to the beginning of the balls), adding pressure on each end to intensify the experience. Sometime the natural stroke of intercourse will take care of the movement on its own.

Not All P-Spots are Made Equal

The perineum is like a snowflake, unique. Because the physical structure of each and every person is different, perineum sensitivity varies from person to person. Some people will naturally be more sensitive, while others will have to work on their sensitivity. The best way to know the P-Spot, however, is to use it! Either solo or with a partner, experiment with the area and remember what works and what doesn’t!

Increase Perineum Sensitivity

Now that men are aware of all the benefits the perineum holds, it’s only natural they would want to increase their sensitivity. This can happen in many ways but it all centers around good blood flow to the area. This not only means maintaining a healthy weight but also getting plenty of cardiovascular exercise to encourage blood flow. Also, the more time the perineum is compressed (as can happen with sitting), the less sensitive it becomes.

Another way to increase blood flow to the perineum is to use a specially formulated penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) which contains amino acids such as L-Carnitine and L-Arginine which protect the nerves from friction damage and also causes the blood vessels to dilate more effectively bringing more oxygen, nutrients, and blood flow to the area increasing perineum sensitivity. Add vitamins A, B5, and E which also increase blood flow to veins and capillaries and it’s an instant win in the P-Spot Olympics!
