That weird belly-button sensation, explained!
Previously someone asked…
“When cleaning my belly button with a q-tip, I get a weird sensation - but it’s not necessarily bad or good. What is it?”
And you all said…
“About the belly button thing! For me if I’m cleaning my belly button and i happen to tug up i feel it inside of my vagina (g-spot area) not pleasurable or painful just kind of a feeling. It’s probably just a nerves type thing?”
“OMG I get the same. I always just thought I was just oversensitive (I am everywhere else)”
“It’s a peculiar sensation felt in the crotch area when something e.g finger or cotton bud, goes in the bellybutton. Cant really explain where, for some its just a weird feeling for others such as myself it borders on painful. I was so relieved when I found out other people felt it O.o”
“I totally have the belly button thing! I never understood it. Basically, when I put a finger or something in my belly button, I feel a really weird, almost painful sensation in my lower abdomen/vag area.”
“I don’t know what it is, but I guess the best explanation is when I press into it, it like pulls on the same nerves in the back of my clit, it’s not bad or good on its own, but if I am getting my me time on and I press down on my stomach holy god, a-fucking-mazing!”
“Yeah i totally get the belly button thing. its not a sexy feeling at all but when I’m cleaning or messing with mine and i poke it, i can feel a nerve twitch type thing in my vaginal area. not even vulva but vagina. its really odd but i know exactly what the asker meant.”
“It just always makes my insides hurt but like not my stomach inside… like my uterus hurts and i hate it, its wrong and belly buttons should be no-no squares”
“Your belly button is one of your erogenous zones so when you do that you’re basically kind of tickling it? Which triggers a kind of weird feeling everywhere and in some cases ‘downnn there’. Not everyone gets it but it’s an erogenous zone so that’ll be why! It’s kinda awesome.”
But the winner goes to theoncefuturequeen who links to this article which explains…
“Although most diagrams of female sexual organs exclude this detail, there IS tissue connecting the belly button and reproductive organs, left over from our days spent in the uterus. Because fetuses receive nutrients from/expel waste through the umbilical cord during their development, there is a tube that connects our bladder to our bellybutton, (a vestige of the umbilical cord) which doesn’t completely disappear after birth.
In our adult bodies, this tissue helps to make up the bladder wall, feeding directly into the female prostate. This is also known as the G-spot or the Trigone area (or T-spot), a spot between the bladder wall and the vagina with nerves that feed down into the bladder, uterus, vagina, clitoris, labia, etc. Thus, it is possible that pressure on the bellybutton from certain angles may be felt in the vaginal canal, and vice versa – pressure on the bladder wall from the inside may create sensations felt in the belly button.”
