G-spot 'may not exist' - The Telegraph



Researchers at King’s College London claim there is no evidence for the existence of the G-spot – supposedly a cluster of internal nerve endings – beyond a woman’s imagination.

“Women may argue that having a G-spot is due to diet or exercise, but in fact it is virtually impossible to find real traits,” said Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology, who coauthored the research.

“This is by far the biggest study ever carried out and it shows fairly conclusively that the idea of a G-spot is subjective.”

They reached their conclusions after a survey of more than 1,800 British women, all of whom were pairs of identical or non-identical twins.

Identical twins share all their genes, while non-identical pairs share 50 per cent of theirs. If one identical twin reported having a G-spot then her sister was more likely to give the same answer

But no such pattern emerged, suggesting the G-spot is a matter of the woman’s subjective opinion.

Andrea Burri, who led the research, said she was anxious to remove feelings of “inadequacy or underachievement” that might affect women who feared they lacked a G-spot.

“It is rather irresponsible to claim the existence of an entity that has never really been proven and pressurise women — and men, too,” she said.


Oh, kinda like god, you mean?


Won't stop me looking for G-spots wherever and whenever women are silly enough to allow me.

I dont think they studied it

I dont think they studied it in-depth. The researchers need to dig deeper.

"But no such pattern

"But no such pattern emerged, suggesting the G-spot is a matter of the woman’s subjective opinion."

So what? They just proved that different people have different subjective sexual preferences? This sounds as stupid as saying "some men love having their prostate stimulated and some don't, so therefore prostates don't really exist and if you think that you have a prostate, that is just your subjective opinion."

What if the G-spot objectively exists, but some women don't like or care about the sensations that they get from its stimulation. That would neatly explain the results that they found.

"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours."
British General Charles Napier while in India

Did these women allow

Did these women allow themselves to be examined by qualified 'g-spot' experts?

I mean if researchers really want to test whether a g-spot exists or not ~ wouldn't they just try to stimulate the woman, or maybe ask the women to show them where to find it ~ I can find mine and the location is known by my husband! Or maybe that feeling I get upon getting it 'just right' is just subjective...

It's hard to make a useful comment

About this stuff from the point of view of a guy but my experience suggests some girls are sexual and some are...not. If you don't find yourself with the first kind it can be pretty damn hard, given you've just dedicated your lifetime's supply of sensuality to someone's complete disinterest. I don't know if there is a g-spot but if there isn't there bloody well should be.
