The G-Spot is All in Her Head

January 4, 2010

Women (and men) have spent a lifetime trying to locate the mythical erogenous zone known as the G-Spot. Now it seems that quest might have been a complete waste of time as some scientists are claiming there is no evidence it even exists.

In “by far the biggest study ever carried out,” scientists at King’s College London surveyed 1,804 British women aged 23-83 and concluded that “there is no evidence that the mythical erogenous zone even exists.” That is, the G-Spot is once again a myth.

Tim Spector, a Professor of genetic epidemiology and co-author of the study, says the existence of the G-Spot is subjective. He says, “Women may argue that having a G-Spot is due to diet or exercise, but in fact it is virtually impossible to find real traits.” So does mean the G-Spot may be a figment of her imagination?

While the study concludes that the G-Spot doesn’t exist, because it doesn’t have any “parts,” some 56 percent of participants in the study claimed to have one, though these women “tended to be younger, more sexually active” and part of the Cosmo generation who have been geared to the presence of a G-Spot their entire life.

Andrea Burri, who led the research, hopes the study will lessen the sexual pressure and feelings of inadequacy women (and men) feel in trying to locate the mysterious sexual zone. She says, “It is rather irresponsible to claim the existence of an entity that has never really been proven and pressurize women — and men, too.”

The research has already been dismissed by proponents of the G-Spot.  Beverly Whipple, who co-authored the book The G-Spot and Other Discoveries About Human Sexuality called the study “flawed.” It seems the debate over the elusive G-Spot continues.

What do you think? Does it exist? Have you found it?
