Hmm interesting. I don't know exactly what to make of that.

I mean, I've seen some intense orgasms after what seems like gspot stimulation (via the internet, honestly - so that might be flawed). But I myself have never had a gspot orgasm. My husband isn't as adventurous as I am, so I am sort of on my own there.

So, there are a couple of problems with this study as presented. First of all, no one links back to the original study, which can be suspicious. Second, the idea that you can prove or disprove the existence of a piece of anatomy through the use of questionnaires is kind of funny. According to the articles I've read, the conclusions of the study hinge on the fact that they interviewed sets of identical twins: since some of the twins claimed to have g-spots and some didn't the researchers concluded the g-spot didn't exist. I don't think I need to point out the reasons why that's a bad conclusion (twins don't usually have the same sexual partners, don't have identical developmental experiences). They also claimed that since most of the women who claimed to have a g-spot were young, this also somehow proved its non-existence. Wha? The methodology here is seriously flawed.

One of the commentators on Jezebel pointed out that there's a huge variation in male genitalia. It would be ridiculous to assume that all penises had to be identical, so why do all vaginas have to be? As we in this community well know, anatomies vary widely, as does the kind of stimulation each person needs. The idea that "some women haven't found their g-spot, so all women must be making this up in their heads" is a pretty stupid thing to say.

The out-of-hand dismissal of women's sexual experiences is also kind of creepy. Here's a link to an interesting study which actually used imaging technology to observe the g-spot (a little more convincing than questionnaires): link

This whole thing reminded me of some pompous old guy trying to prove or disprove ether as a 5th element.

What they were saying, I didn't find to be pompous. They were merely saying that if someone does not find a g-spot, they should not go whacko about it, because there's a good chance that they just..do not have one! They weren't saying that all women don't, so the title of the article was very misleading (which is often done to get you attracted to reading it). Even though the test was flawed of course, they were just saying that there's a chance that some women don't and that others do. The other test that was linked said the same thing, actually, but was just tested differently.

Quote from the author of the first study: "This is by far the biggest study ever carried out and shows fairly conclusively that the idea of a G-spot is subjective." Pieces of anatomy are not subjective. They are claiming that the g-spot is mental, not physical. This was made clearer in the Times UK piece on the study.

The second study I liked to found real, physical, anatomical evidence that when women say "this spot is more sensitive," it's not all in their heads. It is clear that for some women the spot is more sensitive than in others (as borne out by the ultrasound scans), but the difference is in the framing.

Didn't you hear? That's how we found out about the appendix. /snark

There is obviously enough proof of the existence of the g-spot to not give any credence to the study mentioned. We know of its location, the difference in texture compared to other vaginal tissue, and its link to the "female prostate", which has been documented, photographed, etc.

Another piece of flawed science. If a woman has difficulty in finding and manipulating her clit, do we conclude that clitoral induced orgasms are a myth?
I am a g spot girl, I know where it is and what it needs for mind blowing, awesome orgasms. Form my own experience, they only get better!

maybe a survey would help more women find their clit?

I agree with that idea. I know that the G-spot hype does make some women feel inadequate but even though the title is obviously there to grab attention, the study is just ridiculous at its core.

I wish more journalists would take into account how much their sensationalizing of things discounts the value of what point they might be trying to make - and really misinforms the readers who skim or take their summary as gospel.

I read it (link to the CNN article here), and this passage below has me convinced that this study should not be taken very seriously, at all. What half-assed research!

"But the lead study author, clinical psychologist Andrea Burri, isn't sure that the question was asked in a way that accurately got the information the researchers were seeking, as reflected in the study's discussion section.

Her team did not physically examine the women for the presence of G-spots but instead gave participants a survey asking whether they believed that they had a "so called G-spot, a small area the size of a 20p coin on the front wall of your vagina that is sensitive to deep pressure?" (A 20p coin is about the size of an American nickel.)

They found that 56 percent of respondents answered "yes" and that there was no genetic correlation. But only about 30 percent said they were able to achieve orgasm during intercourse, which may indicate that women were confused by the G-spot question because stimulation of the G-spot is supposed to induce orgasm, she said. "

Unfortunately pseudo-science in rampant. The gazillions of hours of TV time and the internet have caused such a high demand for content that anything the slightest bit salacious or controversial is translated into news.

All I can say is like this community - you have to be a very skeptical consumer of what's presented as news, fact or science.

Anyone in ice box of the eastern US still believe in global warming - after all where's global warming when you need it!!!!!!!!!

Uh, what?

Either this study was done by men that have never been near a vagina/don't know what they're doing sexually, or this study was done by some very unhappy in bed women.

You can't disprove the g-spot. Wtf?

If someone doesn't believe in the G-Spot I'm willing to let them come investigate mine for immediate verification. You know, for the good of science and all.

The actual research into GSpots is almost criminally negligent. A 1997 study examined 13 CADAVERS. The report confirmed that no GSpots exist. No REALLY. Lookitup.

The huge UK study asked TWINS if they had a GSpot and although the lead researcher was a woman when pressed she admitted that her declaration that GSpots were a MYTH it was a political more than medical/anatomical conclusion. The reason? She didn't want the % of women who had never experienced G-Gasms to feel disenfranchised or inferior to those who "claimed" (clearly delusional) that they DID have a functioning GSpot and knew how to make that puppy bark.

Dr HINES did a clinical study of clinical studies on the GSpot and declared it was a YETI, a Loch Ness monster ... a MYTH that had NO basis in medical fact.

For those who have never - read this and see if it helps. For those of you who have already discovered it perhaps it might help to increase your pleasure.
