Why You Are Confused About The G-Spot

The G-spot. A complicated, confusing subject. No two pieces of research seem to agree with one another and that has left many of us searching, hunting for this promised land. Experts disagree on everything from the size and location to whether or not it exists at all. Here's where we're at so far: In 1950, German gynecologist, Ernst Grafenberg, first described the mysterious spot. We're 65 years later and according to a review of 33 studies published in The Case of the Female Orgasm, only 25 percent of women reach orgasm through intercourse alone. What gives? Researchers aren't even able to agree on a) whether the G-spot exists and b) if it is part of the clitoris or its own erogenous zone entirely. post-26169-lonely-island-yolo-orgasm-gif-PrEQ In 2012, Adam Ostrzenski, M.D., Ph.D. declared in The Journal of Sexual Medicine that he had found the G-spot by performing a postmortem on an 83 year old woman. He had found a cluster of erectile tissue in a less than 1 centimeter sack in the vaginal wall. But just as we got used to that idea, in 2014, a study in the Journal of Clinical Anatomy, declared that the G-spot does not exist and we should all stop throwing around the term "vaginal orgasm." Yet other experts say that it isn't really a spot as much as it is a region on the front wall of the vagina. So, well, no one is on the same page. Work-pics941 French gynecologist, Odile Buisson M.D. published research in The Journal of Sexual Medicine that suggests the G-spot is just an internal part of the clitoris. Another study from Rutgers University, published in the same journal, suggests that the two aren't connected at all since different parts of a woman's brain light up during vaginal stimulation than during clitoral stimulation. Ostrzenski argues that clitoral orgasms shoot through the spinal cord while vaginal ones do not. This might explain why some women with spinal cord injuries still report orgasms through vaginal stimulation. z3rOkw6Mn7K1Dn9uuXHzuEk7IlA11tKfddEhsFsDxhA "There is no doubt that some women experience orgasms originating in the vagina," says gynecologist Sara Gottfried, M.D. "But scientists have not yet conclusively determined the G-spot's anatomy and physiology. More research needs to be done to completely understand the G-spot and how it affects vaginal orgasm. Women's health is still in the dark ages." I can only find one moral to this story. Go your own way. Here's the thing, you may have what you describe as vaginal orgasms, you may not. "Orgasms are an intensely personal and subjective experience," Gottfried says which means that even if you do have this tissue, it might not work for you the way it works for me or your best friend or any other woman you see.  If you are worried, or anxious, or frustrated, disappointed, it is time to take a step back, stop looking. You can't be in the moment when you are so hung up on something. Think of the energy you could put into other pursuits that could satisfy you, afterall, clitoral orgasms are not up for debate. When it comes to science, the understanding of women's bodies may be in the dark ages but your intuitive understand of your body is not. Listen to it, it will tell you everything you need to know.
