Twin Study: G-Spot is Fiction? Yeah, say the guys

Oh goody, another scientific study about women’s sexuality that is completely stupid and supposedly verified by a flawed twin study.  Don’t you love how the scientists never have to actually verify anything after stating that they are doing a twin study?   Yep, no G-spot because the guys doing the research say it’s not there:

Professor Tim Spector, the other coauthor, similarly stated, “This is by far the biggest study ever carried out and shows fairly conclusively that the idea of a G-spot is subjective. Women may argue that having a G-spot is due to diet or exercise, but in fact it is virtually impossible to find real traits.” Well, it must be science if the authors are using words like” fairly conclusively,” “subjective” and “virtually” to describe it.

And what’s this about diet and exercise? I too have heard many arguments about the G-spot, but that is a new one. I was heretofore unaware that anyone ever suggested that you could create a body part from force of will — even the most enthusiastic of Kegeling.

But here’s where the real news — like a nebulous bit of spongy matter in the front of the cervix — gets lost. Over half of the women surveyed — 56 percent — said they did possess a G-spot. So when Burri talks about women’s feelings of “inadequacy or underachievement,” to whom is she referring? Because it would appear the majority of her subjects are doing just fine, Grafenberg-wise.

Until the study itself is released in full, it’s hard to fully tell how the researchers arrived at their conclusions, and why they seem so quick to debunk something so many women claim to enjoy. Did they ask their subjects if they’d ever experienced ejaculation — a scientifically verified phenomenon and, sometimes, a byproduct of stimulation of that nonexistent G-spot? Did they ask the women if they’d ever attempted to find and stimulate it — either with a partner or alone? And most important, did the authors put on their miner’s hats and go looking for it themselves? There also seems to be a blur between defining a part of the anatomy and insisting it perform in a certain way.

Good points.  For myself, being a twin, I always want to point out to scientists that TWINS ARE NOT CLONES.  In other words, while twins may share genetic material, so do other siblings, and once those genes split (read here scientists:  not connected anymore), the genes change in different ways.  So, too, might a twin’s description of a G-spot, or any other woman’s description of what she likes in bed.  What I am more surprised by is the concept that guys still seem to believe that there is such a thing as a “one-size-fits-all” description of erogenous zones in women’s sexuality.  Just because guys seem to all have the penis as a common erogenous zone, doesn’t mean that all women feel sexually pleased by a single area of stimulation.  And, as any woman who really has loved on men knows, every man likes something a little different in the bedroom, even going so far as to say it’s not a simple plug and play procedure.

Crazy guys, it’s like the Trix Rabbit:  Trix are for kids, and G-spots may just be something for women.  Gosh, it’s a little sad how juvenile this sex game has become.  Here is some Unasked Sex Advice:  there is no magic button–you’ve got to work at pleasing your partner by asking what feels good.  There, I’ve said it.  Do you think I need to put my scientific credentials out there to get people to believe me, or is this message’s popularity out there because guys don’t want to have to find the G-spot.  Check out the post below telling guys to “relax” about not havin to look somewhere when they just want to get laid.  Poor sops, we women, here we were thinking this getting laid was a mutual pleasure thing.
