Is the G-Spot Just a Myth?
Seventy nine years ago, a German gynecologist by the name Ernst Grafenberg published a paper that went ahead to describe an ‘erotic zone’ located on the front wall of the vagina which, in the event it gets stimulated, it can led to orgasms, at times accompanied by ejaculations. It was in the 1980s when this area got formally dubbed as the G-spot in honor of Grafenberg’s discovery. Since then all the way up to today, the concept of the G-spot has immensely taken off in popular culture.
But does the G-spot really exist or it’s just another raging controversy that has puzzled a lot of people for decades? Additionally, if it’s there, how do we find it? The controversy surrounding this puzzle exists since there seems to be consensus regarding what the G-spot is as other women can orgasm through the stimulation of this area, with others finding it incredibly uncomfortable.
So, where exactly is the G-spot?
5 to 8 cm above the vagina’s opening on the anterior wall of the vagina is where the G-spot lies. This area is very easy to locate, especially if a woman gets to lie on her back with someone else inserting either one or two fingers into the vagina while ensuring that the palm is up. Employing a ‘come here’ motion, the urethral sponge –the tissue that surrounds the urethra- begins to swell. This swelling area is the G-spot.
G-spot orgasm and female ejaculation
Clitoral orgasms significantly differ from physiological responses felt from a G- spot orgasm. With clitoral orgasms, the endings of the vagina balloons out, but in the event of G-spot orgasms, the cervix happens to push down into the vagina.
With studies showing that more than 50% of women expelling various types of fluids from their urethra during sexual intercourse or sexual arousal, the same studies have indicated that there are different kinds of fluids produced including a dilute of urine, urine, and female ejaculate.
Even there are some women who may expel such fluids during sex or arousal, the fluids are mainly expelled when they orgasm, and mainly through G-spot orgasm. Squirting and female ejaculate is mainly reported when it takes place or happens with G-spot orgasm.
What then could the G-spot be?
To begin with, this mysterious area that has puzzled a lot of individuals decades isn’t a single, distinct entity as such. There’s much debate as to what the G-spot is and how it how it goes about producing orgasm.
As noted earlier, the G-spot is located in the area where the vagina, clitoris, and urethra all meet up. While there are other structures in this complex that could actually produce pleasurable sensations when they get stimulated, the G-spot stands out as the stimulation of just a single structure, or many structures at once. Of importance to note is that two structures remain hotly debated, standing out as the likely culprits that are responsible for G-spot orgasm: the clitoris and the female prostate.
The female prostate lies within the cushion of tissue that surrounds the urethra, within the urethral sponge, a reason as to why they are sensitive when they get stimulated. On the other hand, the clitoris, as we all know it, is what meets the eye. This is a structure that somewhat encircles the urethra. The mechanical stimulation of the G-spot may go a long way into stimulating the internal areas of the clitoris.
The G-spot: Fact or Fiction? True or False?
Women vary and without a doubt? The G-spot exists in some women. However, of importance to note is not that all women will find G-spot stimulation pleasurable. Again, just because a woman may not be aroused by when the G-spot gets stimulated doesn’t mean that she’s sexually dysfunctional in any way.
Arousal and sexuality have clear psychological and physiological links, though as human beings, we are all created differently physiologically and anatomically. There are millions of women out there who may not be in a position to orgasm while in the presence of a partner, but have got no problems at all with masturbation or orgasm. Surprisingly, there are thousands of women who easily get to experience orgasm just through the stimulation of the foot or ear penile penetration!
Relax knowing that you aren’t abnormal, dysfunctional or strange in any way if you have difficulties finding your G-spot. Similarly, don’t feel strange or abnormal if you expel fluid when sexually aroused. Desires, sexual arousal, and pleasure are all individual. If you have got challenges finding your G-spot, work on finding something that truly fulfills your sexual needs.
