Many people have long been interested of the existence of the “G-spot“, an area found in the vagina that is believed to give women an orgasm when stimulated. All the pondering might all be over as a retired professor of gynecology claims to have found the proof of its existence.

g-spot-graphicThis was according to a selection published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Dr. Adam Ostrzenski has described the infamous spot as a sac-like structure that has a diameter measuring about an eighth of an inch. It is situated on the front wall of the vagina. This was what the director of the Institute of Gynecology in St. Petersburg, Florida discovered after looking into the vaginal woman of an 83-year-old Polish woman who just passed away.

Ostrzenski is determined to make further studies on this matter and find clues on its effect on female sexual function and even looked into any possibilities of enhancing it surgically. He further said that the look may be different to that of a younger woman and its location and size can vary from one to another.

Research Controversies

Other experts, though, are skeptical about the research. What Ostrzenski described was merely a network of blood vessels. It does not necessarily explain how it contributes to sexual arousal. His was what Dr. Emmanuel Jannini said, a professor of endocrinology and sexology at the University of L’Aquila, in Italy. He also stressed that the G-spot is not only a spot; it is something more complex than that.

Dr. Amichai Kilchevsky, a urologist at the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, said that the paper of Ostrzenski does not contain any information on the medical and sexual history of the deceased Polish woman. The urologist also stated that a live human being is what should be studied to assess its functional anatomy.

Getting to Know the G-Spot

This so called “erotic zone” has long been known by cultures from all over the world. This is named after Ernest Grafenberg, a German gynecologist, who wrote about it in the International Journal of Sexology in 1950. It was believed to be an area in the vagina that swells when stimulated which, in turn, produces pleasure.

During the time of Grafenberg, numerous methods have been done which suggested that women do have that area in their vagina that produces a powerful orgasm once stimulated. It is thought to be an erectile tissue and is an extension of the clitoris.

The Role of Media Coverage

With the G-spot making it into the waves of media coverage, sexual health experts grow weary as this might be a reason for women to feel inadequate when they are not able to achieve orgasm by merely stimulating the vagina. Experts, though, are clarifying that not all women have vaginal orgasms and it is perfectly normal. In fact, for most women, the primary means for sexual stimulation for sexual pleasure is the clitoris.

Janinni has hit the spot when he said that it would be wrong to wildly and desperately look for the G-spot. Looking for it for the purpose of vaginal orgasm just might be the best way to lose vaginal orgasm.
