Sixty-two years after the first reference of the G-spot in medical literature, a Florida doctor thinks he’s found it.
According to CBC, Dr. Adam Ostrzenski described the spot as a sac structure with ‘bluish grapeline compositions’ located on the back of the perineal membrane above the upper part of the urethra. Upon removal, the G-spot stretched up to 33 millimeters. Ostrzenski suggests it may expand and contract, acting like the female equivalent of the prostate gland.
The G-spot has long been coveted as responsible for female orgasms that are not triggered by clitoral stimulation. Its presence has long been disputed.
Ostrzenski unearthed the G-spot under five layers of connective tissue, in a single 83-year-old female cadaver.
Research into the G-spot’s location is difficult because it’s largely based on perception. There are a number of areas on the anterior vaginal wall ‘ where the elusive G-spot is believed to be ‘ that trigger orgasms. Differentiating where the highest sensitivity is ‘ back, front, side ‘ can be very difficult.
Studies are now using brain imaging and nerve pathways to better understand if the G-spot is actually a spot at all. It might actually be more like a ‘G zone’ that encompasses the anterior vaginal wall, the Skene’s glands (‘female prostate’) and ‘legs’ of the clitoris that straddle the vagina.
