The G(od) Spot? January 7, 2010

The G(od) Spot?

There’s been a lot of talk lately about how the G-spot “doesn’t appear to exist” in women, but one line in this BBC article about the recent study seems to be referring to something else…

… [researcher] Andrea Burri was concerned that women who feared they lacked a G-spot might feel inadequate, which she says is unnecessary.

“It is rather irresponsible to claim the existence of an entity that has never been proven and pressurise women and men too.”

Hmm… What does G stand for again…?

    The female G-Spot does indeed exist. I gave my ex multiples stimulating it. It’s there, just might not be as sensitive for some women.

  • Wish we applied that reasoning consistently.

  • Today’s XKCD comic deals with this…pretty funny.

  • Good grief!

    Oh it exists but not every woman has a sensitive one and some women may never get off from it, so sad. Face it some women are inadequate in this area just as some men are inadequate in in their junk, big deal. Sex is about so much more than penis, vagina, penetration and orgasm anyway, Take it form me, a dedicated kinkster, fluids and penetration are soooo 20th century anyway, (orgasms seem to have endured thankfully) and fluid bonding has become serious business. If people can’t seem to get off I’m not going to pretend that no one can just to make them feel better about themselves. Go learn to have great sex, there are plenty of resources out there for those who are not hung up on religiously based sexual hangups which seem so pervasive that they can affect even nonbelievers. (Look out everybody kinkster on a rant).
    I’ll leave you with this little gem…

    Finding the G-spot: Is it real?
    By Elizabeth Landau, CNN

    The G-spot has been so difficult to identify because it is more of a physiological change — akin to swallowing or urinating — than an anatomic structure such as a nipple, said Dr. Irwin Goldstein, director of sexual medicine at Alvarado Hospital in San Diego, California, who oversees the peer review process for the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
    But a recent study that adds credence to the G-spot concept. French researchers Odile Buisson and Pierre Foldès did ultrasounds of a small number of women having intercourse with men. By looking at the changes in the vagina, the researchers found physiological evidence of the G-spot. This study is under review at the Journal of Sexual Medicine, Goldstein said.

  • The G-spot is simply where the clitoris presses against the anterior wall of the vagina. Some women are less *ahem* endowed than others so the spot is, as mentioned above, less sensitive. I don’t see the big deal over G-spot orgasms. An orgasm is an orgasm is an orgasm. I think people get so hung up on whether they “come” or not that they forget to enjoy the ride (pun somewhat intended).

  • Any blog that equates God with an internal physiological anomaly is OK in my book.

  • It exists.

  • littlejohn

    I don’t know if it exists, but Mrs. littlejohn enjoys having me search for it. I think I’m being taken advantage of.

    it was a stupid study, just a simple poll of about a thousand women asking “do you think you have a g spot?” done by a researcher who wanted to prove that not having a g spot didn’t make you sexually inadequate.

    It was stupid and means nothing.

  • The G in G-spot stands for Grafenburg (spelling?). He was the person to either discover it or document it. To my knowledge, it is not where the clitoris meets the vagina. The G-spot is a area slightly inside and on the anterior wall of the vagina. When it is pressed, it puts pressure on the urethral sponge, which is a tissue surrounding the urethra in women. For some women, it’s intense and great; for others, it makes them feel like they have to pee now; for others, it doesn’t do much of anything. This is how some women ejaculate–the pressure on the G-spot can cause her to ejaculate fluid from her urethra. It is not urine, just fluid. Sometimes it’s a lot; sometimes it’s barely noticeable.

    At least that’s the information that I have acquired on the subject. 😉

    I agree with you, Vas. Sex these days is way too much about PIV intercourse. We need more focus on alternatives that still feel good for everyone, since the vast majority of women cannot orgasm from vaginal stimulation alone. Kind of how religion negatively affects the vast majority of people, IMHO. When we get to play with the clitoris (be atheists?), life is so much more fun!

    @Sarah–Where did you get that info? As far as I know, it isn’t correct, but I could certainly be wrong, too. No formal comprehensive sex ed here, so I’m just pulling form Talk Sex with Sue and the like.

  • The jokes, they write themselves.

    “Just because you haven’t found it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.”

    “I feel bad for the people who haven’t yet experienced the joy of G.”

    “I want to share with you the joy that can come when you submit to G.”

    “My religion is all about cultivating a relationship with G.”

    “G will manifest itself if you search diligently.”

  • Polly

    Andrew, you’re right!

    “If you seek you shall find G”
    “for G is deep inside you already.”

  • Vas

    Yeah Beth my understanding sound pretty much the same as yours, and I have gone to great lengths to understand girl pink parts as I interact with them often and am pretty good at it as well, (not because I’m so scary awesome but because I have exercised due diligence). It often surprises me that some women don’t really know all that much about their own equipment. Many women don’t even believe in female ejaculation or think they aren’t capable of it when with a bit of information they may find they can, will, and do ejaculate. Most people think that the male orgasm is always tied to ejaculation and that men cannot be multi orgasmic, again so sad. A lot of people are getting short changed simply because they are too lazy, jaded, or arrogant to track down good information and take the time required to practice techniques that could make life so much better for them and those intimate with them. The idea that “an orgasm is an orgasm, is an orgasm” is outright under informed, heck I wish it were that simple. Sex is much like any other activity like driving a car for example, many folks learn to drive in high school and then never improve their skill set and just keep driving the same way their entire life, and lots of those people really enjoy driving, others really love to drive and push to gain more knowledge and skill sets, they go to driving schools and some even become high performance race car or stunt drivers. The funny thing is most people think they are good drivers, (most are not) but get ‘em on a track and they end up in the wall or infield. In any case it sounds like Beth is on track and knows the equipment better than most.
    And yes Virginia, (sic?) there is a G spot.

  • Liz

    Yes there definitely is- a flying spaghetti G-spot in the sky.

  • muggle

    All I know is I’ve experienced one and not the other.

  • The Welcomed Consensus have researched female orgasm for over 25 years and have found that just as engorgement plays a significant role in male sexual pleasure, it is an important component for women as well. What has been named the “g-spot” is simply the underneath side of the clitoris as it forks into the legs or crura. This spot (which are actually two very specific spots, not just one) are accessible through engorgement as either leg of the clitoris runs adjacent to the urethral sponge.

    Upon proper engorgement in the pelvic region, there are several other places that become accessible that are extremely pleasurable called Thunkspots. If the engorgement is created and maintained, all of the Thunkspots remain accessible and sensational to the lightest touch.

  • Now a story about the actual “God spot”:

  • Awww, Vas you’re making me blush…

    And from what I can find on the totally reliable and honest internetz, the g-spot is the urethral sponge, not where the clitoris meets the vagina. I think that’s farther up. 😉 Not that it matters; it’s all fun!
