Study: Scientists Have No Idea Where The G-Spot Is
Researchers: Women Who Haven't Achieved Orgasm Have Nothing Wrong With Them
Science is good for lots of things. Unfortunately, using it to find out how to have orgasms is not one of them. According to a new study, the G-Spot, that fabled land buried inside woman's body which triggers sexual arousal and orgasms, does NOT exist.
After scouring over a half century's worth of studies, surveys and scientific examinations, researchers at the Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut have concluded that there is no such thing as the G-Spot.
At least, not a PHYSICAL G-Spot.
"Without a doubt, a discreet anatomic entity called the G-spot does not exist," said Dr. Amichai Kilchevsky, a urologist and lead author of the study, which was published this month in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Kilchevsky and a team of Israeli and American researchers surveyed nearly 100 published studies -- some which claim to have found a G-Spot, others that say it doesn't exist -- and found them largely inconclusive.
The study suggests that the female anatomy is more complicated (duh) and that a single arousal button likely does not exist.
Barry Komisaruk, a professor of psychology at Rutgers, agrees that there probably isn't some Holy Grail spot that will give a woman an instant orgasm. Rather, Komisaruk says it's a general area that is more sensitive.
"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?'" Komisaruk said. "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."
Unfortunately, G-Region just doesn't have the same ring to it.
