It's time to explore (literally) beyond the clit.

Since its inception in 1981 Shape Magazine has been one of the most popular health and fitness magazines on America's newsstands, grabbing the title of #1 women's fitness magazine along the way. 

In the digital realm shape.com ranks in the top 2500 nationally according to Alexa, and with a ranking of around 6,800 worldwide, they are a powerhouse of traffic in the realm of women's health and vitality.

Their latest article penned by Gigi Engle and filed under "Sex and Love" blows the hood off not only the clitoris, but the G-spot, the A-spot, the O-spot, and the V-spot. The G-spot comes first, and Gigi turns to Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, founder of Femina Physical Therapy for a quick rundown of the associated anatomy:

"While there are loads of articles about the G-spot, I'd be remiss in not mentioning it in an article about vaginal pleasure zones. Why? Because this spot (more of an area, really) is the root of the internal clitoris. It's located on the anterior (front) of the vaginal wall.

The G-spot is more recently thought to be more of a functional structure that is composed of the vagina, clitoral body, and crura (legs of the clitoris) rather than a specific spot," explains Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, a doctor of physical therapy and author of Sex Without Pain: A Self Treatment Guide to the Sex Life You Deserve. So, it's not necessarily its "own" thing but it's compromised of the urethral sponge, clitoris, and Skene's Glands (more on those shortly). The G-spot isn't an independent piece of anatomy, but rather it takes on a functional role as a combo of these independent structures.

To locate it, insert two fingers or a G-spot toy into the vagina and hook up behind the pubic bone. You should feel around and experiment with pressure, rhythm, and various movements to see what feels good for your body.

      My husband and I were having problems with painful intercourse. My therapist recommended that I go and get a pelvic floor evaluation from a physical therapist. Having never been treated by a physical therapist, I wondered how this really was going to help me. My husband who is a physician was very supportive and agreed that a PT evaluation would be a great idea. So i made the appointment and was blown away by what i learned. I had no idea that pelvic floor muscles could get tight and have...
