The G-Spot

Posted on August 8th, 2008 in by Sensual Affair Lingerie Online Store | Singapore

In 1982 Dr. John D. Perry, along with Alice Kahn Ladas &Beverly Whipple, published “The G Spot,” a book which created a great deal of controversy. Perry and company said there was an area in the vagina which responded to stimulation, and that some women were capable of having an orgasm from this stimulation alone. They named this area the Grafenberg spot, or G-spot, after Ernest Grafenberg, who noted the erotic sensitivity of this location in the 1950’s. The well-known, and well-published, “sex experts” of the time rejected the book’s findings out of hand, and since then there’s been an ongoing debate about the G-spot. Before we can discuss what the G-spot is, and what it does, we need to settle any question about its existence.

Contrary to what some detractors claim, the G-spot is not a “new discovery”:
  • In 1880 Dr. Skene noted the existence of glandular structures in the area.
  • In 1672 de Graaf drew a sketch which showed ducts in the area.
  • Medical mention of the area goes all the way back to ancient Rome.
  • Mention of the ability of producing pleasure by stimulating this area can be found in non-Western texts going back to before the time of Christ.
Medical mention of the area goes all the way back to ancient Rome.
So why the dispute about the G-spot? Blame it on Sigmund. Dr. Freud taught that women had two kinds of orgasms: the immature “clitoral orgasm”, and the mature “vaginal orgasm.” Despite the fact that biology was against this “theory,” many people believed it, and kept teaching it to others. Those who set out to teach the truth about human sexuality in the 1950’s and 1960’s spent a lot of time trying to debunk the two orgasm idea. So, when Perry et al. came along and said there was a spotin the vagina which could cause orgasm, the “experts” naturally saw it as a reincarnation of Freud’s vaginal orgasm. Some did incomplete or faulty studies, which they said disproved the existence of the G-spot, while others rejected the idea without even looking at the evidence. Those who follow the expertise of these people still question the existence of something which has been medically proven over and over.¬†

So if it exists, what is it, where is it, and what does it do? The G-spot is a mass of glandular tissue, known as the paraurethral glands, and nerves. The G-spot lies between the urethra and the vagina, and is not actually a part of the vagina. Normally it’s unnoticeable, but as a woman becomes aroused the area swells, making it possible to feel it through the vaginal wall. The G-spot is located 1.5 to 3 inches inside the vagina on the upper wall. When aroused it’s about the size of a quarter, usually a bit longer than it is wide. The position of the G-spot makes it impossible for most women to get a finger to it, but her husband should be able to feel it by inserting one or two fingers into the vagina after she is aroused. The palm of the hand should be up if the woman is on her back, and down if she is on her front; initially finding the spot may be easier if the woman lies on her front. The man should be able to feel the G-spot with his finger(s) as a small lump in the vaginal wall.

While all women seem to be able to feel stimulation of the G-spot, their response to it varies.
Once the spot has been located, the man can stimulate it by moving his finger(s) in very small circles, or by doing a “come hither” motion with his finger(s). Initial stimulation of the G-spot often causes the woman to experience a sudden and strongfeeling of needing to urinate; this feeling soon passes, and may be replaced by pleasant and arousing feelings.

While all women seem to be able to feel stimulation of the G-spot, their response to it varies. Some women can orgasm from G-spot stimulation alone, others can’t. Some women have strong orgasms from a combination of G-spot and clitoral stimulation, and some women have powerful orgasms when having intercourse in positions which stimulate the G-spot (rear entry is good for this). Other women don’t find G-spot stimulation particularly enjoyable.

Women who experience orgasm from G-spot stimulation alone say it feels different than clitoral orgasms, and there seems to be a good reason for that. Recent research has shown that the nerves which serve the G-spot are very different than the nerves which serve the clitoris and the vulva. This supports the hypothesis of Perry and others that the G-spot is a totally separate pathway for orgasm. It also suggest that having a G-spot orgasm may be a learned experience, and may explain why some women don’t find stimulation of the G-spot enjoyable.

We think the G-spot should be seen as one more way God gave us to share in the pleasure of sex. Each woman responds differently, and each couple needs to take the time to discover how this hidden spot may fit into their sex life. In theory all woman should be able to learn to enjoy stimulation of the G-spot, but a woman who is happy with her sex life may not see any reason to work at something that is not initially enjoyable.

Finally, many scientists believe the G-spot is composed of the same tissue that becomes the prostate in men, and this brings us to female ejaculation.
