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.
In fact, feminists such as Anne Koedt wrote about the Myth of the Vaginal Orgasm in 1970, and women’s studies students still see her ideas as relevant to this day, despite recent new information about the clitoris.
Scientists also scoffed at the notion, as they had never bothered to research the clitoris or female orgasm at any length. Research has always centred on the male penis and his orgasm. As far as the skeptics were concerned, female orgasm was relegated to a small button sized glans. They consider the rare ability to orgasm vaginally as all in a woman’s head.
The female prostate
G-spot believer, Deborah Sundahl, presents seminars to prove to, and teach women, that they have a prostate just like men do. She claims that this miniature prostate is capable of ejaculating fluid in the same way a man can. She calls female ejaculation the “lovely feminine fountain.”
Sundahl claims that every woman has one of these small prostate glands. In women, these are scientifically known as the Skene’s glands. However, scientists that dissected 14 female cadavers, in a study made by Emmanuele Jannini in Italy, two didn’t actually have these Skene’s glands. In other words, technically, these women would find it impossible to ejaculate. Technically, Sundahl doesn’t quite tell the truth.
So are these Skene’s glands the elusive G-spot? More recent discoveries about the clitoris dispute this. While these glands may enhance a woman’s orgasm through vaginal penetration, not all women experience ejaculation when they have a vaginal orgasm.
The complexity of the clitoris
How very recently that scientists discovered the complex nature of the clitoris is shocking. It was only in 1998 that an Australian Urologist found the true size of the clitoris. Helen O’Connell used MRI to examine the workings of the nerve supply within the clitoris, and what she found would astound her.
It took until 2005 for the American Urological Association to publish O’Connell’s findings, which revealed that the clitoris was indeed not simply the size of a little button.
In reality, the clitoris is a complex wishbone-shaped structure, up to 9cm in length, which circulates the vaginal opening. When successfully aroused, it tightens around the vagina. In fact, these scientific findings have enabled women who suffered female genital mutilation to have sensation surgically restored.
Does this then mean that when a woman is sufficiently aroused, she could have a vaginal orgasm, no matter who she is? Could the myth of female “frigidity” that Freud, and others, spoke of, just be down to that the woman’s partner has not adequately seduced and turned her on ? Many men complain that post childbirth their wife becomes loose. However, when sufficiently aroused, the clitoris tightens the vagina. Clearly, the looseness of a vagina after giving birth is a myth.

Relearning female sexuality
Women have very complex sexualities, compared to the, generally, straightforward sexuality that men experience. Men also report having a g-spot, and erogenous zones. However, on a biological level, their sexual experience is a method to produce sperm to reproduce. For women, orgasm is not at all necessary to become pregnant. Women also enjoy experiencing orgasm without producing any resultant reproductive material.
Researchers are slowly recognizing the clitoris as having a role in childbirth. Some experts recognize that its presence surrounding the birth canal could alleviate the true extent of the pain of the baby passing through. In fact, some estimate that without the clitoris surrounding it, women would indeed feel too overwhelmed by the pain and could go into shock.
There are even reports of women having orgasms during childbirth. Furthermore, there are women who anecdotally claim that their G-spot only “awoke” after they experienced natural childbirth.
On the other hand, there are women who can achieve orgasm through nipple stimulation. Others have reported reaching climax and even through just the mental powers of their imaginations. It, therefore, seems that to call this multi-faceted and multi-dimensional orgasmic experience many women have just a G-spot is ignorant, to say the least.
It, therefore, appears that a woman’s G-spot is accessed through her brain. Furthermore, it is not isolated to an “x marks the spot” location within her vagina. It is turned on through adequate arousal, sufficient attention, and the ability to experience no pressure to perform.
