What is the viral TikTok belly press thing?

Much like many other viral phrases to come out of TikTok as of late, the belly press thing certainly has a suggestive origin. Essentially, the experience is described as pushing down gently with your hand on your partner's lower abdomen while having sex.

Per Know Your Meme, the practice has been mentioned in various outlets throughout the 2010s, including a 2010 Men's Health article that discussed a version of it referred to as "the sandwich trick." In 2016, Glamour ran an article titled "How to Stimulate Your G-Spot From the Outside," which discussed the practice in more detail.

As the publication described it after talking with a sexologist: "When you put pressure on the lower abdomen, you're pushing on the bladder, which, in turn, pushes on the G-spot just below it."
