The G-spot exists. Cut the pedantic semantics.

Bullshit claim: “The G-spot doesn’t exist.”

Clarification: When a reliable source says the G-spot doesn’t exist, what it really means is that it’s not its own structure, but rather either the urethral sponge or part of the internal clitoris. The nub that we call the clitoris, the glans, is just the tip of the iceberg. To stimulate what’s known as the G-spot is to stimulate the clitoris from a different angle. Nevertheless, that doesn’t change that it’s an erogenous zone for many females.

The G-spot is the area of, for many people, sensitive tissue accessible on the front wall of the vagina, near where the pubic bone recedes. The name for it was coined in the seventies by Grafenberg, hence the G.

What confounds the topic is that scientists aren’t sure what to call it. Some claim that calling it a “spot” implies a precisely located magic button. The erogenous zone is there, but it’s not anything magical or universal. This is true.

But here’s the thing: there’s so much variation among anatomies that hardly anything in sexuality is universal. It’s not in the exact same place in every vagina. Its depth varies. It’s not meant to be a magic button for everybody, but rather another option that should be sought out and experimented with for pleasurable sensations. As with any other sensitive area, it will be really obvious and demystified when you do find it.

To laud the G-spot isn’t necessarily claiming that it is a universal key to orgasm. No, not every female is sensitive in this area, likes being stimulated there, can have orgasms from solely having this area stimulated, and knows how to find it. If it doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t work for you. By all means, find something that does work. If it works for you, great! You’ve found something to expand your sexual repertoire and opened a door for a plethora of sensations.

For many females, including me, it does work. Sex toys curved to stimulate this area are extremely popular, and it would be disingenuous to say that all the women who buy them are merely liars or being duped. It’s true that there’s a lot of hype about the G-spot, but at the end of the day, these women are just doing what feels good to them personally. Your opinion on whether it exists has no bearing on their pleasure.

Because I don’t think calling it the “anterior internal clitoris” will catch on, I may in my future writings call it “the Grafenberg area” but clarify that, yes, it is part of the clitoris. But further picking apart what label to put on it is pedantic semantics.
