Ever since Dr. Ernst Gräfenberg wrote his paper on the “female prostate” in 1950 (named the G-spot in 1981 - a posthumous honor), scientists have been attempting to prove its existence.

As many as half of women report that they derive sexual pleasure and even orgasm from stimulation of the soft spongy tissue about halfway up the front wall of the vagina. That’s good enough evidence for us at Jimmyjane, but it’s not exactly scientific proof. Well, there may have been a new development in the world of female sexology. Adam Ostrzenski, MD, PhD, of St. Petersburg, Florida dissected the vagina of a recently deceased 83-year-old woman and found a tiny structure that he believes to be the ever elusive G-spot. This alleged sexual pleasure center is less than one third of an inch long and is contained in a bluish sac buried deep within the anterior wall of the vagina. This bluish tissue looks like “a tiny bunch of grapes with a white rope-like tail,” as pictured in the photograph. Okay, we’re kidding – those are actually just grapes. However, not everyone in the medical field is convinced. As other professionals in the gynecology field point out, we are not familiar with the sex life of this deceased woman – did she even experience G-spot orgasms? We’ll never know. What’s the Jimmyjane stance on it? While scientific evidence is interesting and potentially useful, it doesn’t play a vital role in the pursuit of sexual pleasure. No matter what doctors and scientists say, only you know what turns you on and gets you off. We encourage women to try stimulating their G-spot and just see if it feels good (you can find tips on how to reach it in our How To Orgasm guide). If it feels good, awesome. If not, no problem – there are plenty of alternative erotic zones and techniques that lead to pleasure. Ostrzenski's report is scheduled to appear in the May issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
