The G-Spot is back in the news. An Italian researcher is claiming that the G-Spot is a myth and that to the limited extent that some women can have orgasms through penetration it is the same orgasm they have through clitoral stimulation. The advice from the research: forget the G-Spot, focus on the clit.
Not being a scientist, I will do my best to summarize the research finding:
1. The clit is not just the external nub that we’ve grown used to rubbing or vibing to get the ‘traditional’ clitoral orgasm. In reality the clit extends well into the vaginal canal, along the wall of the vagina. So, the argument is that, while the tip of the clit has the most nerve endings and is, therefore, the most sensitive and orgasmic, the rest of the clit – the intern part – can also be stimulated through penetration. His conclusion is, therefore, all orgasms are clitoral orgasms.
2. The original research that led to the finding of a G-Spot is flawed in methodology. The subjects used in the experiment had a urinary condition that lead them to have something that looked like a G-Spot.
From my own reading, this is probably partially true. The clit does extend into the vaginal cavity and it can be stimulated from within. Therefore, it is possible to have a clitoral orgasm from internal stimulation or penetration.
But the research is also partially false. Especially as it pertains to its twee major conclusions: that there is no G-Spot and that there is only one type of orgasm. Let me break each of these down:
1. No G-Spot – the presence of clitoral tissue on the vaginal walls only proves there is clitoral tissue along the vaginal walls. It goes nothing to disprove that there may be a G-Spot as well. When we discovered that Saturn was a planet, Jupiter did not cease to exist.
2. Only one type of organs: As a non-scientist I will use anecdote rather than a large study, but I can assure that my wife (and past partners) have had orgasms from pressure exactly where the G-Spot is suppose to be (and not along the side walls of the vaginal canal where the clitoral tissue is) and that those orgasm are – for them – of a different nature and feel than clitoral orgasms.
Further, an internal clitoral orgasm may be very different from an external clitoral orgasm. As a guy, my organs feels quite different when it is a result from lots of direct stimulation on the head of my penis in comparison to an orgasm from stroking my penis – they’re both great but pretty different.
There seems to be a cottage industry within the sex research community that wants to disprove the existence of the G-Spot. Maybe they’re bitter they had it wrong for so many years.
In my mind, the researchers are reaching exactly the wrong conclusion from this study. Rather than showing that there is only 1 type of orgasm, it seems there may be 3
