Mon dieu! The G spot does exist
French gyneacologists have dismissed British research which claimed the G spot, the erogenous zone said to be possessed by some women, may be all in the mind.
In a Gallic riposte to researchers at King's College London , a gathering of French doctors insisted the G spot - supposedly a cluster of internal nerve endings - is far from a myth.
"The English study is barking up the wrong tree," said Sylvain Mimoun, France's best-known gynaecologist, who ws speaking at the "G-Day" conference.
The King's College study published earlier this month is the biggest to date, involving 1,800 women - all of whom were pairs of identical or non-identical twins. If the G-spot did exist, it said, then genetically identical twins would have been expected to both report having one. However, no such pattern emerged.
But Mr Mimoun disagreed with the findings. "It is not a question of genetics but of use," he said.
Odile Buisson, another expert, said the G-spot was "a reality" for at least 56pc of women and its effects could be observed in scans. To say otherwise, she added was "medical machismo".
