Scientist Claim G-Spot Doesn’t Exist

60 years of research suggest the G-spot does not exist…

It’s been a debate of the decades; does the G-spot really exist? While many women swear it does, analysis of over 60 years worth of research suggests that that simply isn’t the case.

Lead author of the review Dr. Amichai Kilchevsky, a urology resident at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut, and his team looked at 96 different studies that had attempted to find the G-spot. He said:

“Without a doubt, a discreet anatomic entity called the G-spot does not exist.”

Kilchevsky did note that the work is not “1,000 percent conclusive,” which means someone could one day prove him wrong.

Does The G-Spot Really Exist? Scientists Say No

The G-spot was named after Dr. Ernst Gräfenberg, who in 1950 described the particularly sensitive area on the vaginal wall. But Gräfenberg wasn’t the first to write about it; The Kamasastra and Jayamangala scripts dating back to 11th century India also describe a similar sensitive area.

Research shows that most women believe the G-spot exists, but many of those women say they can’t locate it, and the physical evidence gives some kind of reasoning.

Biopsies taken from the vaginal wall have showed that some women have more nerve endings in that area, however the numbers were not conclusive and more importantly, the amount of nerve endings is not the only factor that determines sensitivity.

A 2008 study used ultrasound imaging to explore the vaginal wall of women, and found that women able to achieve vaginal orgasm had slightly thicker tissue in the area of the G-spot. Women who said they had never had vaginal orgasms tended to have thinner tissue.

Another study, conducted at the Rutgers University, scanned the brains of women asked to stimulate themselves using a functional magnetic resonance (fMRI) machine. The brain scans showed stimulating the clitoris, vagina and cervix lit up distinct areas of the women’s sensory cortex. This means the brain registered distinct feelings between stimulating the clitoris, the cervix and the vaginal wall – where the G-spot is claimed to be.

Barry Komisaruk, the lead author of the fMRI study and professor of psychology at Rutgers University, suggested that G-spot is more of a G-region.

“I think that the bulk of the evidence shows that the G-spot is not a particular thing. It’s not like saying, ‘What is the thyroid gland?

“The G-spot is more of a thing like New York City is a thing. It’s a region, it’s a convergence of many different structures.”

Komisaruk explained that pressing on the area proclaimed to be the G-spot also presses the urethra and a structure called Skene’s gland, which is analogous to the male prostate. Nevertheless, together with other imaging studies analyzed in the review, Kilchevsky’s team couldn’t find a conclusive G-spot:

“Each of those areas have different nerve sites. I think there’s good enough data that a lot of women feel that that is a particularly sensitive region…

“Women who can’t achieve orgasm through vaginal penetration don’t have anything wrong with them…

“What they’re likely experiencing is a continuation of the clitoris.”

Kilchevsky points out that G-spot skeptics often theorize that the tissues of the clitoris, which extend into the body behind where the G-spot would be located, are responsible for creating the sensitive area.

The review was published Jan. 12 in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
