A recent study from Britain is claiming that the G-spot is a myth, or at any rate that it's subjective.

"The scientists at King?s College London who carried out the study claim there is no evidence for the existence of the G-spot ? supposedly a cluster of internal nerve endings ? outside the imagination of women influenced by magazines and sex therapists. They reached their conclusions after a survey of more than 1,800 British women.

In the research, 1,804 British women aged 23-83 answered questionnaires. All were pairs of identical or non-identical twins. Identical twins share all their genes, while non-identical pairs share 50% of theirs. If one identical twin reported having a G-spot, this would make it far more likely that her sister would give the same answer. But no such pattern emerged, suggesting the G-spot is a matter of the woman?s subjective opinion."

I have to take serious issue with this research. First, the researchers (or the author of the article) apparently don't know what the G-spot is. It's not nerve endings only, but a collection of glands and ducts that surrounds the urethra. Anatomical dissection has already proven that this exists. Defining the G-spot as nerve endings leads me to believe what the research really wanted to know is "do all women experience pleasure from G-spot stimulation?" which is a very different question. Every day when I talk to customers, I have to remind people that everyone is different. What may work for one person won't work for the next. Thus, I would not be surprised to find that many women didn't really feel much pleasure when stimulating the G-spot. That's not the same thing as saying it doesn't exist.That said, the researchers relied on women's self report of whether or not they felt anything. Although I'm all for listening to what women have to say about their bodies, I've also talked to hundreds of women about their G-spots and many of them had misunderstood where their G-spot was or how to stimulate it. They were under the impression that their G-spot did nothing for them when in fact, it may have just needed a different touch. Self report can be a terrific way to do research, but in a world where misconceptions about the G-spot abound, it may not accurately reflect women's G-spot pleasure potential.I'd love to see a study measuring the changes in G-spot sensations after reading a good book about the G-spot or after attending one of our G-spot workshops.
