I bet he's glad he discovered that, rather than getting an insect named after him!

I'd read about that as a teenager (early-mid 90's). Don't remember where I read it, though. Thought it was interesting that a guy had to find it.

I dont find it very odd. Even breast cancer is found like 75% or something by men, or the woman's sexual partner. And it was (is still a lil today) kinda taboo for women to touch themselves so I'm not really surprised it was found and documented by a man.

I learned about it in collage during a human anatomy course.

I knew about Ernst Grafenberg. I would love to learn more about how he discovered it.
Edited to add: According to Wikipedia (assuming the article is relatively accurate), he also developed the IUD.

All I knew was that it was a man with a name starting with G, like "gugengeigengigsomethi n." That's about all I knew. Thanks for telling me what his real name is. lol.

Really? That's REALLY where it came from? That is so strange. I have wondered where the name came from and never had found anything about it. Neat info though.

I'm sure a lot of women knew they had the spot, long before a dude named it.

Possibly. But since female masturbation was so looked down upon they probably didnt say anything to anyone but their husband.

He probably stumbled upon it with a woman's directions.
