From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The perineal sponge is a spongy cushion of tissue and blood vessels, found in the lower genital area of women. It sits between the vagina and rectum and is internal to the perineum and perineal body. [1]


The perineal sponge is composed of erectile tissue; during arousal, it becomes swollen with blood compressing the outer third of the vagina along with the vestibular bulbs and urethral sponge thereby creating a tighter fit and additional stimulation for the penis.[2]

Sexual stimulation

The perineal sponge is erogenous tissue encompassing a large number of nerve endings, and can, therefore, be stimulated through the back wall of the vagina or the top wall of the rectum.[3] Some women who claim to experience orgasm during anal stimulation may be having their perineal sponge stimulated. These orgasms are often accompanied by ejaculation and are said to feel similar to orgasms that result from G-spot stimulation
