Is it really there or not? The problem of the G-spot

Posted in: Women's Health 20 Jan, 2012

It would appear that never has an issue perplexed so many people than that of the G-spot. The supposedly diminutive, yet by no means discredited, part of the female body has been at the forefront of female sexual health debate for the last 60 years, during which research and different studies have produced a variety of results in the pursuit of the infamous spot, and how and if it can be reached.

The uncertainty surrounding it continues as researchers have, again, reported that the G-spot may not even exist, despite previous suggestions from medical experts, and in conflict with the general belief, that it does.

No conclusive evidence

The recent study of six decades worth of research, conducted at the Yale-New Haven Hospital, Connecticut, has led to reports claiming the existence of the G-spot is a theory still far from completion. Tell us something we don't know.

The need, then, for a more objective approach in this investigation is ongoing. But would the further research to fully understand and potentially fulfil sexual desire, particularly in women, be worth it in consideration that the mysterious erogenous zone may well be a fabrication of modern, Westernised thinking? That, and the fact that, as individuals and as couples, we all have our own experiences and levels of sexual enjoyment, regardless of whether orgasm is achieved.

In other words, what works for one doesn't work for all.

Feeling the pressure

Despite questions of its existence, there is an increasing amount of pressure put on women to locate something so apparently inherently intangible! The very obscurity of it - the worry of actually finding it; the belief that it leads to a sexual climax - could be the very thing that prevents or delays orgasm in the first place...

If more time was spent doing what feels good for us, and less time spent fretting over the technicalities of what is meant to be a natural human act, then, perhaps, we could come to our own fulfilment.

Still, since the 'discovery' of the G-spot by Ernst Grafenberg in 1950, the freedom with which sex is expressed - along with ideals set down by the media, sexual therapy and an expectant society - has seemingly put women under pressure and encouraged feelings of sexual inadequacy.

Other factors

It goes without saying that there will be instances where a number of perfectly normal issues influence your sexual performance - from stress to tiredness, lack of foreplay to bad timing. The prospect of climaxing every time sexual intercourse is engaged is unlikely, and this is normal for many women.

There may be cases where underlying medical problems, such as vaginal irritations or infections, affect sexual performance. Female Sexual Dysfunction(FSD) comes in many different forms, which can make it difficult to diagnose, but as there is medicine available to treat the various symptoms, the stigma attached to FSD and other female sexual health concerns is now no longer a widespread issue.

So, to answer the question of whether there is a G-spot or not, I wouldn't recommend losing sleep over it.

Do what's best for you, and if you're lucky you may find your own G-spot.
