Doctors discover ‘remarkable’ evidence that G-spot exists

After years of debate about its existence, doctors now think they have discovered definitive evidence that the elusive G-spot is indeed very real.

A team of researchers in Turkey think they have confirmed the so-called erogenous zone, located a few inches into the vagina, as detailed in a new study published in the European Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Reproductive Biology.

As reported by the New York Post, they found that women experienced fewer and less intense orgasms following surgery to an area long thought to contain the G-spot.

The researchers tracked the sexual function of 89 patients who had anterior colporrhaphy operations, a reconstructive procedure to repair weakness of the vaginal front wall that causes the bladder to droop.

The prolapse of the anterior wall occurs when too much pressure is placed the pelvic floor muscles that hold the bladder, uterus and intestines in place, and can be caused by childbirth, heavy lifting, coughing or constipation.

The patients – aged 24 to 62, who went under the knife between May and December 2021 – completed a “Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire” before, and six months after, the surgery to determine how their sexual function was impacted.

While arousal and libido remained the same after the operation, “we found a remarkable decrease in orgasm in these patients” post-op, the study’s authors wrote, suggesting that the G-spot was damaged during surgery.

Pain during intercourse also increased after the operation, the authors noted.

The anterior wall of the vagina, the alleged home of the G-spot, swells during arousal and is believed to play a role in orgasms.

However, researchers disagree on its size, location and name; some claim the term is misleading.

Last year, one study called for the erogenous zone, first discovered by German gynaecologist Ernst Gräfenberg, to be renamed the “G-zone” due to its different functions, triggers and locations that vary from person to person.

However, other studies have suggest the G-spot is bogus after researchers failed to find an anatomical structure that could be identified as the pleasure centre, chalking it up to being in close proximity to the clitoris.

Meanwhile, others hypothesise that the G-spot is just an extension of the clitoris, which was once believed to only be comprised of the raisin-sized exterior bundle of nerves.

Famed sex therapist Dr Ruth Westheimer once applauded the attempts at debunking the mythical G-spot, saying evidence that it might not exist “takes away the pressure and anxiety” from women who have difficulties finding it themselves.

Meanwhile, the Turkish research team behind the new study notes that they only monitored patients for six months post-surgery – so longer-term studies would be needed to confirm their findings.
