|"Popular term for a particularly sensitive area within the vagina, about halfway between the pubic bone and the cervix at the rear of the urethra; named after gynecologist Ernst Gräfenberg (1881-1957) who first put forth a theory concerning this area."|
"When authors Ladas, Whipple and Perry first published their book The G-Spot, their findings were not all too convincing and the existence of this "new" erogenic zone - especially its alleged ability to ejaculate an orgasmic fluid was not officially recognized by most doctors and medical scientists. Leading scientific papers still do not publish any related research, hereby declaring it "unscientific" (and themselves to be practically ignorant), yet a growing number of women - and men - now know by experience ... and they do not need to be convinced by theory. Reviewing the meanwhile available evidence, the conclusion must be drawn that there exists no actual G-spot in the sense in which it has been promoted, though the "discovery" certainly has led to a better understanding of what actually goes on. The G-spot is - in fact - merely a simple label for a rather complicated and sophisticated part of the yoni, a part that is erotically sensitive and which is also responsible for female ejaculation. The label can of course be used - for simplicity's sake - but by not considering the biological facts it does only lead to new misconceptions. There can be no question - for example - whether or not each woman "possesses" a G-spot: they do! The difference - whether or not she feels it - depends on a wide variety of physical and psychological factors and it is certainly conceivable that not every woman is particularly sensitive in this area - just as there are worlds of differences in the sensitivity of nipples and other "standard" erogenic zones."
"The area we are concerned with is actually called the urethral sponge - an area of spongy tissue (corpus spongiosum) that also contains clusters of nerve-endings, blood vessels, paraurethral glands and ducts - that covers the female urethra (urinary tube) on all sides. During sexual stimulation - by finger-pressure or certain positions and movements of the lingam, the sponge can become engorged with blood, swells and thus becomes distinguishable to touch. A number of researchers - in Israel and the USA - have meanwhile established that tissue of the G-spot area contains an enzyme that is usually found only in the male prostatic glands. This may indicate that we are dealing here with a "female version" of the prostatic glands, a collection of glands which also in men is rather sensitive to touch and pressure. The existence of these hitherto unknown glands in this place may also explain the fluid secretions many women experience during/after G-spot stimulation."
"To those not yet practically acquainted with the G-spot, it presents an interesting paradox and invites for adventurous exploration: in order to find it, one has to stimulate it - and to do just that, one has to find it! An early Chinese concept of the G-spot may have been that of a Palace of Yin. Though the term is often used simply as meaning "womb", it specifically refers to the location in the body where the orgasmic secretion called 'moon flower medicine' lies waiting to be released. As such, the concept may well be the most early "discovery" of a G-spot and represents the ancients insights into female ejaculation and the female prostatic glands."
Examples of definitions that may be close, but are being thrown off by use of the word "spot"
"I think my G-spot is past the urethra by at least an inch... (could be wrong...) about 2 or 2-1/2 inches or so from the entrance to my vagina."
