It is the spot which has been known as the key to a woman's sexual pleasure, yet the actual location of the G spot
has been a question asked from one man to the next for generations, and even in 2008, they are still none the wiser.
The place that men have struggled to find over the years made it's name, if you like, around 25 years ago when it was given its term. Since then, it has been questioned as to where it actually exists or not.
Women are not sure where it is either, although it appears to be a number of places for most women, however, a group of Italian scientists seem to have come up with the answer. They had located the true place of the G spot with the use of ultrasound, meaning it could bring to a halt years of frustration and angst for couples all over the world.
The results have lead the team to believe that the actual location of the G spot is a particular part where the tissue is thicker than the area around it, according to the New Scientist magazine. This sounds like a place most of us had pretty much sussed out already. A difficult place to find meaning some women could achieve an orgasm through penetration where others couldn't, or simply couldn't find it.
The 'love spot' has been the focus for many couples over the years - some have been lucky to find it, others have spent nights of sheer frustration, yet it appears that the key to satisfaction has been reached. The results of the study lead by Dr Emmanuele Jannini at the Italian University of L'Aquila, have been published in none other than the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
The study was very small in comparison to other studies carried out in the past where they have focused on couples, yet this one only used 20 women. By ultrasound, the team were able to locate the G spot and it's tissue formation just further up from the "front wall" of the vagina. It is here that has been described as the area where the G spot is over several years of research and fumbling around in the dark.
Out of the 20, 9 women said they could achieve orgasm, and it was this group that were found to have significantly thicker tissue than the other 11 who took part in the study.
Speaking on behalf of the team, Dr Jannini told BBC News,
"For the first time, it is possible to determine by a simple, rapid and inexpensive method if a woman has got a G spot or not."
Yet the study has come under some questionable fire from the UK, where Dr Tim Spector, from St Thomas' Hospital in London, was reported to have said in the British publication, the New Scientist, that this misrepresented thicker tissue was actually just a continuation from the clitoris. However, all this meant was that women believed they had found the G spot, or rather they were stimulating just a different part of an area which had already been found.
Also in London, speaking on behalf of the University College of London, Dr Petra Boynton, argued that the whole concept of the G spot and it's true location had lead women to believe that they were failing in some way if not being able to locate it, or at least, they were finding that their own G spot was letting them down sexually.
She told BBC News,
"We're all different. Some women will have certain area within the vagina which will be very sensitive, and some won't - but they won't necessarily be in the area called the G spot. If a woman spends all her time worrying about whether she is normal, or has a G spot or not, she will focus on just one area, and ignore everything else. It's telling people that there is a single, best way to have sex, which isn't the right thing to do."
In the meantime, it will keep men guessing and women ever more mysterious.
