(HEADLINE HEALTH) The Fountain of Youth. The Lost Continent of Atlantis. The G-spot.

Men have searched for mysterious and alluring treasures since time immemorial, only to be met with frustration and disappointment. Some have given up; others are still searching. 

Now some of the world’s leading sexologists have come to the disappointing conclusion that the much sought-after G-spot is not a thing – it simply does not exist.

In spite of the significant scientific effort that went into this research, odds are that men will continue searching, with strong encouragement from their partners. Highlights of the published scientific research paper appear below.

The “G-Spot” Is Not a Structure Evident on the Vaginal Wall

(Nathan Hoag, MD, FRCSC, Janet R. Keast, PhD, Helen E. O’Connell, MD, MBBS, FRACS, The Journal of Sexual Medicine)

Background

Controversy exists regarding the presence or absence of an anatomic “G-spot.” However, few studies have examined the detailed anatomy of the putative G-spot location.

Aim

To determine the anatomy of the anterior vaginal wall …  to provide anatomic clarity with respect to this location.

Results

There is no macroscopic structure other than the urethra and vaginal wall lining in the location of the putative G-spot. Specifically, there is no apparent erectile or “spongy” tissue in the anterior vaginal wall, except where the urethra abuts the clitoris distally.

Clinical Implications

The absence of an anatomic structure corresponding to the putative G-spot helps clarify the controversy on this subject.

Conclusion

The G-spot, in its current description, is not identified as a discrete anatomic entity at macroscopic dissection of the urethra or vaginal wall. Further insights could be provided by histologic study.
