Apparently, The 'G-Spot' And Vaginal Orgasms Don't Exist After All
We've been going about this all wrong.
According to a new study in the journal of Clinical Anatomy, the 'G-Spot,' otherwise known as the place where women supposedly feel intense orgasm, doesn't actually exist.
Per the study's co-author Dr. Vincenzo Puppo, the 'G-Spot' is a myth because — wait for it — vaginal orgasms can't actually happen, only clitoral ones. In other words, for women to orgasm, they need the penis to come into contact with their version of a penis, aka the clitoris, which holds a whopping 8,000 nerve endings.
Sexologist Dr. Jill McDevitt, who teaches sex-positive education on college campuses across the U.S., says that the clit functions in the same way as a penis, and requires the same amount of attention during sex for female orgasm.
"Penises and clitorises develop out of the same embryonic tissues, blood vessels, and nerve endings. They are biologically homologous," she wrote in a Philly.com blog. "Women need clitoral stimulation to respond sexually as much as men need penis stimulation to respond sexually. It's that important."
Considering that 55 percent of men report never finding the g-spot and more than 80 percent of women say they have trouble orgasming, this revelation isn't so surprising. But just because women can't come from penis/vulva penetration, doesn't mean their chances of orgasm are any less or that they're "broken."
"Orgasm is always possible if the female erectile organs are effectively stimulated," the study press release reads.
The abstract says it's all about stimulating the proper areas:
Orgasm is always possible if the female erectile organs, i.e. the female penis, are effectively stimulated during masturbation, cunnilingus, partner masturbation, or during vaginal/anal intercourse if the clitoris is simply stimulated with a finger.
And more good news: "Male ejaculation does not automatically mean the end of sex for women," says Puppo.
For 75 percent of women who have faked an orgasm, the study should come as a relief and a catalyst to help have better sex.
Now that we know the penis-in-hole method only benefits men — because their nerve endings are getting stimulated while the woman's isn't — both parties can make adjustments to their sex techniques and have the big O that all sexes deserve.
Now, that's something we can get down with.
