G-Spot: To G or not to G, that is the question.

Do I have a G-spot? Hmmm…let me see. Well I know one thing for sure, when my man repeatedly presses against this area about a couple of centimeters beyond my vaginal opening along my vaginal wall, a gush of fluid comes squirting out. (Sorry about the details.)

A recent study published by King’s College London denies the existence of the “G-Spot,” quote: “The women in the study, who were all pairs of identical and non-identical twins, were asked whether they had a G-spot. If one did exist, it would be expected that both identical twins, who have the same genes, would report having one. But this pattern did not emerge and the identical twins were no more likely to share a G-spot than non-identical twins who share only half of their genes.”

Damn. Apparently what I experienced is all a “figment of my imagination.” My man is not really manually skilled. A river of fluid didn’t actually come gushing out. I didn’t experience a pseudo-orgasm. And that particular physical area the size of a quarter was not, in fact, stimulated. There goes my sex life!!!

In a study conducted by Emmanuele Jannini at the University of L'Aquila in Italy, an ultrasound was used to identify distinct anatomical differences in women who have a G-spot. “[J]annini's team took a different approach, and used vaginal ultrasound to scan the entire urethrovaginal space - the area of tissue between the vagina and urethra thought to house the G spot.” NewScientist Print Edition, 20Feb08, Linda Geddes. "The authors found a thicker vaginal wall near the urethra and hypothesized this may be related to the presence of the controversial G spot."

Well there you go. Scientific evidence of a G-spot. Need I say more?


Unfortunately, both studies fall prey to egregious generalizations. Like, do we really need to make a generalization about all women- more than half the world-wide population- based on a tiny population (British study) and on flawed conclusions (Italian study)? Do we really need to take the conclusions so far as to say if women don’t have a G-spot, they can’t experience a vaginal orgasm? Really?

With regard to the British study, perhaps their mate just stunk in bed and they should have hired Don Juan to participate in the experiment as an alternative. Perhaps the overall negative attitude the British carry toward sex made it hard for the twins to want to experience a G-spot orgasm. (The latter is well documented in a book by Paul Ferris, “Sex and the British: A Twentieth-century History.”) In other words, it’s really hard to prove something does not exist since the factors for not experiencing that thing are limitless.

With regard to the Italian study, based on degrees of thickness of vaginal lining Jannini came to the conclusion that if a woman has thick lining she has a G-spot; if she has thin lining she does not. A better interpretation to me would be- if a woman has thick lining stimulation is easier to achieve; if she has thin lining stimulation is harder to achieve. In other words, his study does not prove that women don’t have a G-spot, only that they do. Again, hard to prove that something doesn’t exist.

In sum, we shouldn’t conclude that if a woman doesn’t have a G-spot orgasm or if she has thin vaginal lining, neither does she have a G-spot nor can she experience a vaginal orgasm of different sorts. Another area that can cause vaginal orgasm is the A-spot: an area deep inside the inner end of the vaginal tube, thought to be the “female degenerated prostate,” Desmond Morris, The Naked Woman: A Study of the Female Body, Jonathan Cape, London (2004).

I am fortunate to be able to experience A-spot orgasms. These orgasms are incredibly intense and mind-altering, and are something I believe every woman should experience, along with all the other pleasures sex has to offer.
