Does the female G spot really exist, or is it merely sending many a woman and man on a futile exploration through our vaginal walls? One Florida doctor claims he has answered this question once and for all–something that is getting a lot of people, well, excited. But how he knows it’s real is kinda gross. And what this could mean for the plastic surgery industry is even more disturbing.
Dr. Adam Ostrzenski, a cosmetic gynecologist and director of the Institute of Gynecology in St. Petersburg, Florida says he has evidence that the fountain of orgasms is, in fact, real. How does he know this? He found it when performing a postmortem dissection of an 83-year-old woman. According to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, Ostrzenski located a bluish, grapelike clusters of tissue in a tiny sac located on the front wall of this woman’s vagina. This, he claims is our long-lost G spot, a.k.a., female pleasure center.
If this “grapelike” cluster really was inside this woman, does that mean that we all have the same cluster of grapes lurking in our vaginal cavity? And if so, why has no one else discovered it yet?
Beverly Whipple, the sex researcher and professor emerita at Rutgers University who coined the ‘G spot’ name in 1982, isn’t convinced that what he found really and truly is the female erogenous zone. She told Science News:
I have no idea what this thing is that he found. We don’t even know if this tissue is normal.
And while there have been multiple studies attempting to solve the mystery of the G spot, none have definitively been able to say, “this is where it is and this is how you find it”. In fact, Whipple said that zone might vary from woman to woman. Wild goose chase, anyone?
As if the thought of what was inside an 83-year-old’s vagina isn’t disturbing enough, there is already a buzz about using cosmetic surgery to enhance a woman’s G spot.
Kristin Mark, a doctoral candidate at Indiana University believes Ostrzenski’s motives for declaring the G-spot are purely financial:
Dr. Ostrzenski is a cosmetic gynecologist, and leading the public to believe that female sexual function will be improved by this discovery has the potential for major profit for his practice. Claims are already being made based on this research that you can ‘regain your self-confidence with genitalia rejuvenation’, despite these procedures having tragic consequences for many women.
Genitalia rejuvenation? Don’t fall for it, ladies. There are plenty of other ways to become aroused, if you so choose, without someone cutting open your vagina to insert some grapes.
