A doctor claims he has discovered the sexual equivalent of the lost city of Atlantis — the female G spot.
But has he?
Dr. Adam Ostrzenski, a cosmetic gynecologist and director of the Institute of Gynecology in St. Petersburg, Fla., is making some waves for claiming to have identifed the long-sought-after structure during the postmortem dissection of an 83-year-old woman.
In the Journal of Sexual Medicine, Ostrzenski describes locating bluish, grapelike clusters of tissue in a tiny sac located on the front wall of the vagina.
He then determined this to be erectile tissue, which if true, would be evidence of the long-debated female pleasure center.
But doctors and sexual health experts are warning not to get too excited about this “discovery.”
One reason for doubt: This structure was only found in a single woman, who’d died 24 hours earlier from a head injury.
Beverly Whipple, the sex researcher and professor emerita at Rutgers University who coined the ‘G spot’ name in 1982, isn’t convinced. “I have no idea what this thing is that he found,” Whipple told Science News. “We don’t even know if this tissue is normal.”
There have been multiple studies that have attempted to unlock the mystery of the G spot but none have been able to prove that a universal female erogenous zone exists, outside of the clitoris.
In fact, a study published in the same journal earlier this year by Israeli researchers failed to find a consistent “spot.”
Scientists admit there’s a lot of anecdotal evidence that some women are blessed with the sexually sensitive area but no real proof that all women can “find” it.
