Scientists cast doubt on whether G-spot exists

A new scientific study has cast doubt on whether the erogenous G-spot zone in women actually exists.

Supposedly discovered in 1950 it is meant to be a collection of nerve endings possessed by some women and not others which if found can give women a high level of sexual pleasure.

A study, however, carried out on 1,800 British women by scientists at King's College London has raised doubts about its existence. The women — all pairs of identical or non-identical twins aged between 23 and 83 — filled in questionnaires. Identical twins share all their genes, non-identical ones only share half.

If the G-spot did exist, it would be expected that both identical twins would report having one.

But scientists found no pattern of when one twin reported having the erogenous zone the other twin also claimed to have it.

Co-author Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology, said: “This is by far the biggest study ever carried out and it shows fairly conclusively that the idea of a G-spot is subjective.”
