G-Spot Is a Myth

Or at least British researchers can't find it

(Newser) – The G-spot is a figment of the imagination, say British researchers. A team at King's College London based its conclusion on questionnaires sent to more than 1,800 women, all of them pairs of twins. If the G-spot existed as a physical entity, the results would have backed it up, they say. “This is by far the biggest study ever carried out and it shows fairly conclusively that the idea of a G-spot is subjective," said one of the lead researchers.

“I think this study proves the difference between popular science and biological or anatomical science,” a gynecologist tells the London Times. But it won't end the debate, of course. “The biggest problem with their findings is that twins don’t generally have the same sexual partner,” says Rutgers professor Beverly Whipple, a believer who has written several books on the subject.
