Listen as Dr. Kellogg Spadt explains the G-Spot.

Dr. Kellogg Spadt:
Actually, the G-spot is an area or a perceived area that is undergoing a lot of controversy right now, but luckily it is the subject of lots and lots of basic science research, so soon we will know definitively what the G-spot is. What we do know right now is that in surveys and upon physical exam conducted in research settings, the majority of women state they feel something that is very sensitive and associated with pleasurable sensation. This area seems to be on the upper most walls of the vagina very near the entrance to the vagina. It seems to be near the urethra tube which is the tube from which a woman passes urine and also on the underside of the clitoral shaft which is the body that we can see from the outside that causes great pleasure when it is stimulated.

This area that we are talking about is probably not a discrete anatomic area or like a separate organ inside the vagina, but probably a functional area that means just an area of increased sensitivity or responsivity on the upper portion on the vagina. Really more research needs to be conducted before anything else is concluded about the G-spot, but it is very interesting because from women themselves we hear indication that there must be some area in the vagina that is more sensitive when erotically stimulated. There is also some controversy and some thoughts that the experience of female ejaculation or emission of fluid at the peak of female climax might be associated with G-spot stimulation, but first we need to know exactly what that is and so stay tune for more basic science research.
