back to article American search team fails to find women's G-spot

US researchers have concluded that there's little evidence to support the existence of the legendary Gräfenberg Spot - a bundle of nerves located in the front wall of the vagina which can supposedly cause the earth to move. The team - led by urologist Dr Amichai Kilchevsky of Yale-New Haven Hospital - trawled "clinical trials, …

I'm maybe not too familiar with English... do they tell us they have spent damn sixty years for a female masturbation?

why didn't they study people who know an enjoy their g-spot? That makes more sense than picking random people that have no clue/

Amused by: "The King's College study shows a lack of respect for what women say."

Sure, coz the existence of an anatomical structure is best determined by what someone says, particularly the one person on the planet who is physically incapable of looking. (Or can French women do that? I think we should be told.)

Indeed

Ignoring the evidence, or lack thereof, is much more egregious than merely ignoring someone who claims something exists simply because they believe it to.

The quoted statement misses the point entirely.

WTF?

I think you have got your own name wrong.

What an outrageous statement - if we can't see it, you can't feel it ??

I think people know their own names, like they know their own bodies. They do not need visual proof of a known thing. I don't care if it uses the same density of nerves, or if it puts more power down them, or if there are strong tissue differences or none. It is a sensory thing, and as such exists merely if noticed.

For what its worth, there is a noticeable physical structure, but that may not be universal.

downvoters

would any of you care to explain what is wrong with my post above?

Surely we are talking of the existence of an erogenous zone here, which need not necessarily have a distinct physical form. I see the denial of its existence as akin to saying there is no physical evidence for you having your own name, whatever your insistence.

"Surely we are talking of the existence of an erogenous zone here, which need not necessarily have a distinct physical form."

your wording is weird

the way you open your statement basically says "just because I cannot prove in anyway that I saw that alien taking my cousin it doesn't mean the alien was not real"...

the g-spot is supposed to be a physical area where a bunch of nerves congregate and is that gathering of nerve terminations that makes it move the earth... if it turns out to be a huge placebo for women so be it but it is definitely NOT what the g-spot (as originally described at least)

... I for one do not care what these people say... I will continue my field research looking for it!!!! LOL

Is it a ghost?

- No it is not a ghost, but a thing that is human sensory thing, a perception. Consider it like "ticklishness", or have we determined that that doesn't exist either?

My point is that as a phenomenon, as an erogenous zone, it exists, even if not necessarily in all women.

The physical form similarly, just "some" evidence is all that is needed - even if it is rare, it exists. Anyway, there seems to be quite a lot of physiological variability in this sort of thing, try wikipedia on the subject.

Kings College....

The College where Quackery is King.

Where Physical ailments are re-branded as psycho logical sicknesses.

You would think these guys are Scientologists with the way they corrupt real world medical evidence, Maybe they are...

one day they will get the medical record bent so far out of shape that you get admitted to hospital with a broken leg and get sanctioned to the nearest looney bin with some silly made up name psycho-limb mumbojumbo breakdown.

(the Quacks from KC are already doing this with MS/ME/CFS (and now EHS/Microwave sickness))

read "she comes first"

This book describes in detail female anatomy, ah hem down there.

It speculates that the G spot is the base of the clitoris (which is actually a larger organ than the button type bit), mostly hidden under the flesh of the first lip. See wiki diagram

I bet all the researchers were men - none bothered tp read a manual, and they certainly wouldn't stop and ask directions.

(full disclosure - I'm male, and I'm mocking my fellow males)

So while researchers may claim it is purely imaginary, the results are are unambiguously positive when you do find it. Except when they're religous!!!

Re: Is it any surprise

Not when you consider the research was lead by the inahbitants of a country which was discovered by someone of indeterminable origin who got lost looking for somewhere else. If their forefathers couldn't find Asia what chance have they got with a G-spot.

But it wasn't for lack of trying!

I bet it was the most exhausting research ever, going on night after night and most likely during the mornings as well.

Could it be the G-spot is actually a logic switch? Not one point but several that, when stimulated correctly result in the toggling of this switch?

We know that the human body uses such switches to pinpoint sensations, and is why we can experience phantom sensations/pains/pleasure. So could that be why this spot is so elusive?

Hmm... this could require some serious investigation...

Yeat another metastudy

So, they amused themselves reading other intrepid researchers' adventure stories? Wankers.

How about rolling up the sleeves, undoing the belts and doing some real research instead?

That's even better

If it existed but was very hard to find, then it would be easy for women to blame men for not finding it.

But if it doesn't exist at all, then it's *always^ all the man's fault for not finding it!
