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.

Testimonial by Julie T.

Femina PT (née Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy) has honestly changed my life. Before receiving treatment at Femina, I was going doctor to doctor to try and find the answer to my pelvic pain. It has taken me YEARS to find someone that can help fix this. It wasn't until my gynecologist recommended your clinic that I finally felt relief. My pelvic pain is almost gone, and granted I still have a lot more to work on with Laureen (my PT), my original problem is nearly cured. I am so grateful to her.

What is even better is she gave me practical exercises to do at home that were not tedious and provided instant (and lasting) relief. Although I mainly work with Laureen, my interaction with the owner (Heather) has been great. She is very generous, kind, and committed to her business.

It hurts to know there are women out there suffering who will never know or have the opportunity to work with women like Laureen and Heather because this issue is hardly talked about and this field is so rare. I hope more doctors and physical therapists see the value in this work and can relieve more woman of their pain.

Testimonial by S.H., age 24

I just wanted to thank you for everything you've done for me for the past 19 months. I literally could not have reached my goals without you and your practice. You gave me the courage to keep moving forth with my treatment no matter how afraid and anxious I was. You were always there to answer questions and made this whole process so much easier than I expected it to be.

It's because of you that my marriage is on the right track, that I can get pregnant and that this part of my life is finally over. I really feel that Fusion Wellness is a team of people you can call family and are there to root for you and cheer you on until you reach your goals. There is nothing better than knowing I accomplished this with you guys by my side and as calmly and patiently as I needed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for always being there and helping me reach my goals.

Testimonial by M.M.

My husband and I were married for 5 years and unable to have intercourse, but I never knew why. After numerous awful experiences at doctor’s offices (where many doctors told me I “just needed to relax”), a surgery that didn’t fix the problem, and a year of owning dilators that didn’t get me anywhere, someone finally referred me to Heather for Physical Therapy. I finally had answers and information from someone who knew exactly what I was dealing with!

Testimonial by Rosanna R., age 35

Heather has affected my life in the MOST POSITIVE way and I am forever grateful. My husband refers to her as the "sex doctor" so you can only imagine how happy he is with my therapy outcome.

After the birth of my son I suffered from "Vaginismus", however, at the time I just thought I was broken. My "broken vagina" affected me physically but it was an emotional struggle as well. Many women in my life also suffered with pain from sex after their babies were born so I knew I wasn't alone. They told me they "just got used to it" but I couldn't see myself living that way.

Sex wasn't just painful, it was literally impossible - IT DIDNT FIT!

Heather is the best! I saw her today for terrible hip/groin pain. I was so impressed with the safety measures in place and felt completely safe . Thanks for the healing hands.

Testimonial by M.M.

A personal journey and testimonial from one of my patients:

My husband and I were married for 5 years before we were able to have intercourse due to my vaginismus. There was nothing traumatic in my past but for some reason, even though I wanted sex, I mentally avoided "that area" of my body and didn't even admit to myself that there was a problem for a long time, even though I was never able to put tampons in. Once I finally opened my eyes up to the fact that I had a problem, I had a surgery that was supposed to fix the issue.
