Sex researchers have concluded that the so-called G-Spot, a vaginal area of exceedingly heightened sexual sensitivity, does not in fact exist.
The Gräfenberg Spot, named for the gynecologist who postulated its existence, is said to be an especially erogenous area of the vagina which can produce powerful orgasms when stimulated during sex.
For decades, sexual literature detailing how to stimulate it has flourished in the pages of women’s magazines, but its existence has never been scientifically demonstrated.
Seeking to put the matter to rest, University of London researchers undertook the largest sexological study of the G-Spot to date, encompassing 1,800 women.
The study participants, all twins, were asked whether they considered themselves to have a G-Spot or not, on the basis that if the G-Spot did exist as a biological and genetic phenomenon, it would be more likely to occur in identical twins (who share the same genes) than in non-identical twins (who share only half their genes).
The results demonstrated identical twins were no more likely than non-identical twins to report having such a spot, suggesting the G-Spot is in fact a purely subjective phenomenon at best.
One of the authors holds forth on the subject:
“Women may argue that having a G-spot is due to diet or exercise, but in fact it is virtually impossible to find real traits.
This is by far the biggest study ever carried out and shows fairly conclusively that the idea of a G-spot is subjective.”
