Dr. Adam Ostrzenski says he's found the G spot - you know, the actual G spot, that somewhat mysterious place in the female anatomy said to hold the key to sexual pleasure. And he didn't just find it by accident after a night of drinking or extended cuddling. Rather, he went to Poland and found the G spot of a 83-year-old dead woman.
From the Los Angeles Times story:
Inspecting the six distinct layers of tissue that make up a woman's vaginal wall, Ostrzenski said, he uncovered small, grape-like clusters of erectile tissue housed in a sac less than 1 centimeter across -- "a deep, deep structure" nestled between the vaginal wall's fifth layer, the endopelvic fascia, and its sixth, the dorsal perineal membrane.
Naturally, the "discovery" has set off a firestorm of sorts, with some applauding the finding as further proof that the G spot actually exists. Others, like Rutgers University Sexologist Beverly Whipple contend that Ostrzenski's research actually does a disservice to the understanding of women's sexuality.
More from the Los Angeles Times:
Laying out a bundle of poorly defined tissues and calling them the G spot likens women's powers of sexual pleasure to the "on-off switch" that better describes men's sexuality, Whipple said. In suggesting he has found and characterized the exact structure that boosts the intensity of orgasm in women, Ostrzenski ignores research that suggests there is no single magical "spot" that does all that, she added.
"No, there is not an 'it'!" she said. "It is not one entity."
Whipple tells the Los Angeles Times she and her colleagues are already working on and hope to publish a critique of Ostrzenski findings in a future issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine. According to the Times piece, the issues taken with Ostrzenski's research include the fact he failed to show that the "small, grape-like clusters" he discovered have nerve endings; that the clusters are made up of erectile tissue, or that the area he's identified plays any part in female sexual arousal.
So there's that ...
Still, he got to publish an article claiming to have found the G spot.
