Stupid Lies About Vaginas, G-Spot Emergency Follow-Up
Oh, look! There was a study in 2008 that “revealed clear anatomical differences between women who said they experienced vaginal orgasms and a group of women who did not. The scans identified a region of thicker tissue where the G spot was rumoured to be lurking, which was not visible in the women who had never had a vaginal orgasm.”
It was a small study, but that seems kind of significant, doesn’t it? Almost like women know their own bodies.
It’s an answer for women frustrated by never being able to find this “mythical” spot and an answer for women told that their very own, intimately known G-spot is imaginary.
"The research supports a previous study by the team which reported differences in the chemical make-up of the G spot tissues. Women who appear to have a G spot produced specific chemicals, including an enzyme that processes nitric oxide, the substance that triggers male erections."
Again, it’s a small study, but something that seems important enough to mention in articles purporting that the G-spot is a fucking myth, don’t you think, @Salon and @Jezebel?
How about we all stop telling women that their own bodies are lying to them about what they like? If it feels good -or doesn’t feel good- there’s the truth. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re doing it wrong or that it’s all in your head.
And now… ride ‘em if you got ‘em. Ride that beautiful G-spot unicorn into the sun!
Stupid Lies About Vaginas, The G-Spot Special!
Gaaaaaaaaaaaah. I’ve seen the debate about the G-Spot many, many times.
It’s the best thing ever, you just have to find it and you’ll come sparkle juice forever!
NO! It’s not real! You’re not feeling anything but a lie perpetuated by men and the media!!!
The latest round is at Salon. The Truth About the G-Spot: Why It’s Time to Put This Sex Myth to Bed. Sex myth! It’s a fantasy! Ha! Stupid women thinking they have a part they don’t have.
The Salon piece starts right off with the answer. “Once lauded as a “magic button” and the ultimate female pleasure enhancer, an Italian scientist’s recent report claims once and for all that the controversial G-spot is nothing but a myth (with a really good PR campaign).”
It’s nothing but a myth, ladies! There’s the answer right there. You probably just needed to pee. Duh.
Oh, but then if you keep reading, the answer changes. “Of course, it has been documented that women can and do experience heightened sensitivity when the upper vaginal wall is stimulated, so it’s not like science is outright snubbing the walnut-sized spot. Rather, the study points out that female pleasure and orgasm are more all-encompassing than previously thought, and that sensitivity exists simultaneously throughout the CUV and not just in one tiny area. Or, if you prefer your sexual science served with a Facebook analogy, “It’s complicated.””
And then… “But he also notes that women who experience heightened pleasure around the G-spot area aren’t crazy or making it up. Indeed, biopsies of vaginal wall tissue have shown that in some women, there are more nerve endings in the purported G-spot than in surrounding areas…” Oh, thanks for the fucking shout-out. Maybe it’s not all in your head.
Breathe a sigh of relief, chicks, because “it’s been documented.” Whew! We did studies to be sure you were really feeling that sensation some of you told us you were feeling. *head pat*
Jesus Christ on a Cracker.
Let’s break it down, shall we? Here’s what the clitoris actually looks like:

That entire yellow thing that wraps around the urethra and vagina? That’s ALL CLIT. It’s not a tiny nub. It has wings of power!!!!! It swells up during arousal and causes all sorts of funny feelings down there!
So there is a whoooollllle lot of nerve action going on during sex and it’s all wrapped up with your vagina and urethra and vascular system. Some areas may be exceptionally sensitive in one woman and nothing but a twinge in another, depending on the thickness of her vaginal walls or the amount of pressure or just what feels good to her. (Strange, but there might be a lot of women who just don’t like motherfuckers finger-poking their vaginal walls.)
Hey, I have an idea. Let’s see what Jezebel has to say about it in the helpfully titled You’re Never Going To Find Your G-Spot Because It Doesn’t Exist. ”What the scans revealed was that the brain did show increased activity in the sensory cortex when the area where people believe the G-spot is was stimulated. So something is going on down there. There is no one “spot,” but there is a region that is especially sensitive. Dr. Barry R. Komisaruk, who did the brain scan study, thinks it’s all in how we term it: “It should be called the G-zone or G-area.”“
Oh, Sweet Lord of Female Pleasure, are you telling me this shit is all a semantics game? You’re telling women who have actually had G-spot orgasms that they are imagining everything, and then you say “I mean, it’s really a G-area, you ignorant bitches.”
Someone get me a drink.
So here’s the thing. There are, in fact, a ton of nerves in that area, and, in some women, a palpable little lump and extra nerve endings. For some women, manually stimulating that area magnifies her orgasm. For some women, stimulation of that area alone can bring on an orgasm. For other women, not so much. No one is imagining anything. It’s not a myth, it’s just a possibility.
The only thing complicated about it is that it’s about women’s bodies, and we all know women’s bodies are mysterious and tricksy and always causing trouble by being individual, just for fun. Some women love nipple stimulation. Some women can come from it. Some don’t want them touched at all. ARE NIPPLES REAL? Let’s do a study.
Even better, why don’t we do a bunch of scientific studies to find out if men really like a little ass play during orgasm. Because, you know, some men don’t. And some do. And there’s not actually an organ called the A-spot, it’s just that the prostate is right next to the ass wall, and some men claim that their orgasms are more intense when you press on it. Oh, but some men don’t want any part of it and it doesn’t turn them on. IS THE A-SPOT EVEN REAL??? ARE MEN IMAGINING IT???
I’d push for a study, but the truth is that it would probably be called "Jane’s boyfriend likes it when she sticks her finger up his ass, but my boyfriend hates it. Is my feminine odor to blame?" So let’s just carry on without it.
In conclusion, find out what makes you come and do it. It’s not a myth, ladies, it’s a fucking area.
And P.S., I’m happy there is finally research going into female pleasure, but we need to get so much better at talking about it.
