Do you believe in the G-spot??

First Italian scientists claimed that they could find the G-spot through ultrasound, and now researchers at King's College London say that the ever-elusive pleasure zone doesn't exist. The study was led by Andrea Burri, who told The Times that the research was meant to lessen the feelings of inadequacy that women feel. 'It is rather irresponsible to claim the existence of an entity that has never really been proven and pressurise women--and men, too,' she says.

The study is already being challenged. But researcher Tim Spector tells The Times, "This is by far the biggest study ever carried out and it shows fairly conclusively that the idea of a G-spot is subjective."

Um, tell that to my vagina, Tim. I've always believed that the G-spot, in my body at least, could be an internal part of my clitoris--which could be why me coming through vaginal penetration alone seems about as likely as running into Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny. Having said that, stimulating the G-spot leads to much more powerful orgasms. Whatever you want to call it, that ball of tissue is REAL.

Anyway, I don't buy into the Sigmund Freud theory that one type of orgasm is 'better' than another. Clitoral orgasms may be 'infantile', but they rock my world.

Men are wired differently, so why can't we accept that we are as well? Since sex for women starts in our minds, maybe the idea of the G-spot has been picked up through thousands of women's magazine articles, and encouraged women to masturbate differently. I can see lots of issues with a questionnaire-based study, because it didn't take into account the most important variable: The women's sexual partners.

Perhaps the women who had the 'thicker' tissue that showed up in ultrasounds, or reported that they 'felt' their G-spots were more regularly aroused than those who didn't stimulate their G-spots on a more regular basis (since it's a 'use it or lose it' muscle)? Who knows? Everyone is different, and as long as we are getting off regularly, I don't see the harm in doing more studies. In fact, I would like to put my hand up to volunteer.

Having spent the last 5 years professionally reviewing adult toys I can say without a doubt that I possess a g-spot and I believe that most women do.

The g-spot is a spongy collection of nerve endings on the front wall of the vagina a few inches inside and I stimulate it regularly with my toys.

I've also found that stimulation of my g-spot brings about female ejaculation and I squirt. For me the g-spot certainly exists.

I'm extremely puzzled by this research.

Uh, put your hand up where Chaos?

Ok, I too am prepared to volunteer to help with the research into the existence of the g-spot. I am happy to do it for nowt, just a cup of sweet tea will suffice after Catherine and I have exhausted ourselves in the exploration. To misquote Captain Oates, 'I am coming inside and may be some time.'

Well what do you expect from a mere male. This is paradise for anybody who enjoys innuendo. Thanks you, Cath.
