G-spot 'may not exist', say scientists

The G-spot, the erogenous zone that is said to be possessed by some women but not by others, may not exist at all, according to scientists.

Researchers at King’s College London claim there is no evidence for the existence of the G-spot – supposedly a cluster of internal nerve endings – beyond a woman’s imagination.



“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,” said Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology, who coauthored the research.

“This is by far the biggest study ever carried out and it shows fairly conclusively that the idea of a G-spot is subjective.”



They reached their conclusions after a survey of more than 1,800 British women, all of whom were pairs of identical or non-identical twins.



Identical twins share all their genes, while non-identical pairs share 50 per cent of theirs. If one identical twin reported having a G-spot then her sister was more likely to give the same answer



But no such pattern emerged, suggesting the G-spot is a matter of the woman’s subjective opinion.



Andrea Burri, who led the research, said she was anxious to remove feelings of “inadequacy or underachievement” that might affect women who feared they lacked a G-spot.



“It is rather irresponsible to claim the existence of an entity that has never really been proven and pressurise women — and men, too,” she said.
