article imageScientist Can't Find G-Spot, Doubts Existence

By R. C. Camphausen     Jan 5, 2010 in Science
A survey of 1,804 women - all twins - is believed to have revealed that human female anatomy does not have a feature widely known as the G-Spot.
Even before being published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, a recent study by professor Timothy D. Spector and his collaborators is right now being hailed as more or less conclusive that the elusive and highly orgasmic G-Spot some or many women do report having ... most likely doesn't really exist.
At least that is how the science gets reported after being lost in translation.
The BBC health website says The G-spot 'doesn't appear to exist', say researchers, while the Mail Online is less impartial and states What anti climax! After 60 years scientists claim proved G spot doesn't exist.
The perhaps most interesting aspect of the study is this, as reported in the research group's PDF document called Genetic and Environmental Influences on self-reported G-Spots in Women: A Twin Study:
We found 56% of women reported having a G-Spot ...
yet a few sentences further the same document states
... there is no physiological or physical basis for the G-Spot.
An explanation for the strange idea that there seems no such spot to the scientists while 56% of the surveyed women say that there is, may be that - as sexologist Beverley Whipple says, the study is flawed. Coming from Whipple, perhaps the foremost authority on the spot named G-Spot after it's discoverer Gräfenberg, a German gynecologist, it seems a heavy accusation. However, when one looks at what the researchers actually studied, her reasoning sounds rather convincing:
a) the subjects, all twins, were merely asked to fill out a questionnaire
b) they were selected for being twins rather than for being a representative cross section of women (part hetero, part lesbian) with one or more lovers using varying sexual techniques
In addition, the website of professor Tim Spector shows him as a rheumatology consultant ...
