Sexpert Q & A: What is the A-Spot?

Dear Yvonne_ What is the A-spot? Angel

Dear Angel, The A spot is the "Anterior Fornix Erogenous Zone." This is located midway between a woman's cervix and G spot on the front wall of the vagina. It appears as a spongy, wrinkled swelling, which is extremely sensitive to touch.

A few years ago, a Malaysian sex researcher reported on the AFE Zone, as it is also known, for the first time. In working with couples who were suffering from vaginal dryness during sex, he found that stimulation of this area can result in increased vaginal lubrication. Stimulating this area can help some women become more orgasmic, given its erotic sensitivity.
