Does a woman's G-spot actually exist? Are there any research studies?

1 Answer 1


The existence of the G-spot remains highly debated among researchers.  Two recent publications (Hines 2001, Kilchevsky et al. 2012) review studies of the so-called G-spot and conclude the evidence is too inconsistent to claim its definite existence.  Foldes and Buisson (2009) argue that the G-spot is actually just a clitoris that is richly  innervated. This would be consistent with the reported variability of G-spot presence or absence due to natural variation in innervation among women. (This last statement is my hypothesis offered without citation).

As noted by @Armatus in the comments, a few minutes following some of the Wikipedia links to the scientific journals (not the BBC, CNN, pop news sites, etc.) would give you lots of information about the G-spot. Still, I thought you question was worth typing up a brief answer for the sake of completeness.
