And so the hunt for the famed G-spot continues. Is the much-debated female pleasure spot reality or is it just some conjured up sexual hype? Whether or not there’s actually a Gräfenberg spot (or G-spot) is an issue that has been debated over the last 60 years, and now scientists at Yale University are saying that they can’t find it.
Even though Yale researchers have thoroughly investigated the existence of the notorious hot button since 1950, they are finally putting the G-spot to rest.
Objective measures have failed to provide strong and consistent evidence for the existence of an anatomical site that could be related to the famed G-spot,” writes lead researcher Amichai Kilchevsky, a Yale urological surgeon, and his colleagues, in the most recent issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
My view is that the G-spot is really just the extension of the clitoris on the inside of the vagina, analogous to the base of the male penis, Kilchevsky concluded.
There are avid G-spot enthusiasts who have battled naysayers over the years and still believe that, when stimulated, it can lead to a powerful female ejaculation. In the past, there has been scientific consensus that supports the G-spot theory as it being an extension of the female clitoris, which supposedly explains powerful orgasms.
Still, only two years ago, British researchers also concluded that the G-spot was nonexistent through questionnaires and personal data. Either way, for women who can’t seem to find their G-spot, they may feel sexually dysfunctional:
Lots of women feel almost as though it is their fault, they can’t find it, Kilchevsky said. Men are upset they can’t stimulate it for their partners. The reality is that it is probably not something, historically or evolutionarily, that should even exist.
The scientist and his team are hopeful that their research might ease the minds of those, who have for years thought that they were sexually inadequate because they could not put their finger on the alleged trigger.
