Facts and Myths about the Female G-Spot

Are you one of those lucky ladies who know how to access their G-spot?


The elusive female G-spot has been the subject of debate and anecdote. But there is no real clear evidence of its existence. As a result, many scientists are keen to undertake research to find out whether such an erogenous zone exists.

Much of the female population believes it has to be a myth, other’s swear by its existence. So, what are the facts about the female G-spot? And what are the myths?


The “Gräfenberg” spot

Eric Gräfenberg was a German gynecologist who is most well known for inventing the IUD, and allegedly discovering the G-spot. The G in G-spot is from the first initial of his surname.

Gräfenberg had been undertaking research into the urethra in females. It was during this research that he claimed he had discovered an erogenous zone.  Despite whatever evidence he believed he had found, it took 30 more years for nurse, author, and sexologist Beverly Whipple to bring it to public attention.


Female ejaculate or leaking urine?

Whipple initially took an interest in the topic of female ejaculation while teaching kegel exercises to women who believed they suffered incontinence during orgasm. What she noticed was that not all of the sufferers were leaking urine. A few of them indeed appeared to be ejecting a form of feminine ejaculate.

Consequently, she decided to write a book about her findings called “The G-spot and Other Discoveries About Sexuality.” In this, she welcomed others, both women with anecdotes and professionals, to share their experiences. Her book was hugely popular, and the G-spot became fondly referred to as the Whipple Tickle.


Nevertheless, many scientists and feminists remained extremely skeptical. During the 80s, the physiology of the clitoris was still unknown as it had not seemed relevant to research. Freud had spoken at length about how women should be able to achieve a vaginal orgasm, and that clitoral orgasms were immature.

Freud’s view angered many feminists who were not aware of their personal biology. And indeed, some of Freud’s language implied that women were inherently faulty if they could not achieve the mystical state of vaginal orgasm via penetrative sex with their male partners.
