Study: Scientists Can’t Find ‘G-Spot’


NEW HAVEN, Conn., Jan. 25 (UPI) — The “G-spot,” the erogenous zone inside the vagina many claim provide intense pleasure during sexual intercourse, may not exist, a U.S. researcher said.

Dr. Amichai Kilchevsky, a urologist from the Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut, conducted a review of the research on the G-spot from 1950 to 2011 using keywords like G-spot, Grafenberg spot, female orgasm, female erogenous zone, the Yale Daily News reported.

“Objective measures have failed to provide strong and consistent evidence for the existence of an anatomical site that could be related to the famed G-spot,” Kilchevsky wrote in the review.

The objective measures included everything from “digital stimulation” to magnetic resonance imaging scans, Kilchevsky said.

However, modern investigative techniques may provide more evidence in the future, Kilchevsky added.

Kilchevsky said the majority of women believe the G-spot exists, but that is thanks to a myth perpetuated by the porn industry and the media.

The findings were published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
