Read This, Not That: Does the “G-Spot” Exist?
Today’s guest submission is from Liz Cambron.
While men have names for all of their sexual anatomy—and pills to bring things back to life after the better years pass—the situation is a little murkier for women. Consider the so-called “G-Spot.” Some scientists suggest that it is purely a myth, or that the orgasms produced by stimulating that area of the vagina come from a woman’s head, not her body. (!!! My G-Spot is in my head!? Then why can I feel it in my vagina?). Dr. Susan Block, writing for counterpunch, looks at the science in this extremely entertaining piece:
That “scientist” label must have gotten to me because, the first chance I had, there I was, licking my middle finger and hooking it about an inch or so into my vagina in the “come here” gesture, pressing that sensitive, spongy, bean-shaped area on the anterior wall, just to make sure it hadn’t somehow vanished overnight. Then, before I could say “bogus findings,” I was enjoying a nice, pulsating G-spot orgasm. Well, at least there are some silver linings in this black cloud of bad science.
