gspot1 Scientists Reveal Exactly What (And Where) The G Spot Actually Is

It was around thirty years ago that the G-spot first entered the public consciousness – but it is only now that we are beginning to fully understand the mysterious zone of pleasure… 

Since Professor Beverly Whipple first announced the existence of the G-spot it has (understandably) been eagerly searched for, reports The Sun.

But so many women have come up (sorry) empty-handed that many doubt it actually exists?

The Science Vs podcast visited Professor Whipple, who told them she found the magical spot while studying women who thought they were peeing during orgasms.

Her team examined patients’ vaginas to feel around for sensitive areas.

Beverly said:

You go all around the vaginal wall, from 12 o’clock, to 3 o’clock, to 6 o’clock and so on, saying: “How does this feel? How does this feel?”

Between 11 and 1 o’clock, at the front wall of the vagina, we got a lot of smiles.

Unfortunately though, it’s not quite that simple. Later research found that although the majority of women do have a ‘sensitive zone’ less than one in three experienced orgasms when it was stimulated.

But the fact remains, pressing something in the vagina is making at least some women smile – so what exactly is it?

Helen O’Connell, professor of urology at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, thinks she may have the answer.

Although Helen says her work didn’t seem to show anything special in the vagina where the G-spot should be, she believes it could be linked to another sensitive part of the female anatomy.

Helen believes that what Beverly had identified as the G-spot, isn’t a spot at all, but rather the clitoris, urethra and vagina all working together.

Helen discovered the clitoris shares some of the same blood and nerve supply with the urethra and the walls of the vagina.

As a result, she says: 

During sex the three parts can push, prod and excite each other – kind of like puppies in a basket.

So if it’s not a spot, as such, what should it be called? Well the term that’s catching on is the Clitoral, Urethral, Vaginal (CUV) Complex.

Although it doesn’t have quite the same alluring ring to it, Helen says we should use the CUV Complex because the term ‘G-spot’ makes it sound like all you have to do is find a spot, press it and you’ll be riding multiple orgasms.

She said:

[It makes it sound like] somehow if you touch it enough or thrust it harder, that somehow magic is going to occur. Well that’s just a really bad paradigm.

People are probably going to stick with G-spot though…
