Science Looks for the G-Spot
Men and science have long searched for the elusive G-spot, the erogenous zone that some say curls toes, sends flutters of joy through the body and gives the neighbors a quick update on the satisfaction level of your sex life. In the face of decades of doubt that the G-spot actually exists, Adam Ostrzenski, director of the Institute of Gynecology in St Petersburg, claims he found it and has published "G-Spot Anatomy: A New Discovery," which appears in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Let's read the fine print.
"Adam Ostrzenski, M.D., Ph.D., of the Institute of Gynecology in St. Petersburg, FL, conducted a stratum-by-stratum anterior vaginal wall dissection on an 83-year-old cadaver. The dissection established the presence of the G-spot, a well-delineated sac structure located on the dorsal (back) perineal membrane, 16.5 mm from the upper part of the urethral meatus, creating a 35 degree angle with the lateral (side) border of the urethra."
Wait. Hold the phone.
Let's go with moan.
The research in question was conducted on a single 83-year-old cadaver!
Is this the best science can do? Maybe researchers can find a few live women and ask them, "Does it feel good right here? How about here?" Do we really need to go crawling around dearly departed grandma's anterior vaginal wall for answers?
It appears the search for the G-spot will continue.
