Bad news, ladies: That new G-spot vibrator you got? It was a waste of money, because according to new research, your G-spot doesn’t exist. Or does it?
Researchers at King’s College in London went on a quest for the elusive G-spot, and say they came up empty handed. Their conclusion: the G-spot is a figment of women’s imagination – i.e., you have one if you think you do.
Wait, what? This is setting female sexuality back 50 years. Plenty of women who enjoy G-spot stimulation will assure you that they are not just making it up. There’s a reason people make such a big deal about it. It’s not like the G-spot was fabricated as a gimmick to sell sex manuals and specially designed toys. (Although, if the G-spot did turn out to be a hoax, that would take a big bite out of the marital aid market.)
There are more than a few problems with this study. First, the data collected was based on participants’ self-reported experiences. It’s odd that, in a study seeking a physiological basis for the G-spot, none of the women were even physically examined.
Second, it didn’t take into account the type of sex the women were having. Well, it did, sort of. The study excluded lesbians and bisexual women – and those are the folks who are more likely than most to know where the G-spot is and how to work it. How many husbands know where their wives’ G-spots are?
This question was settled a long time ago. There is a G-spot – the urethral sponge and the surrounding tissue. It’s located between the front side of the vaginal wall and the pubic bone, near the bladder. There are a lot of nerves there, plus the glands that make women squirt during female ejaculation. Pressure on this area may produce the sensation of having to pee, and it will result in some mind-blowing orgasms. Of course, everyone’s body is different, so your mileage may vary.
But don’t take my word for it – or some lab jockeys’. Seek out the G and you shall find it. Happy G-spotting!
