After dissecting the anterior vaginal wall on an 83-year-old cadaver, Adam Ostrzenski, M.D., Ph.D., of the Institute of Gynecology in St. Petersburg, FL, was able to confirm that the G-spot exists.
Ostrzenski found a well-delineated sac structure located on the back (dorsal) perineal membrane, 16.5 mm from the upper part of the urethral meatus, creating a 35 degree angle with the lateral (side) border of the urethra.
He also found that the G-spot has 3 distinct regions, with dimensions of length (L) of 8.1 mm x width (W) 3.6 mm to 1.5 mm x height (H) 0.4 mm. After Ostrzenski removed the entire structure with the adjacent margin tissues, he discovered that the G-spot stretched from 8.1 to 33m. He concludes:
"This study confirmed the anatomic existence of the G-spot, which may lead to a better understanding and improvement of female sexual function."
According to Irwin Goldstein, editor-in-chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, studying women's sexual health issues is vital.
"This case study in a single cadaver adds to the growing body of literature regarding women's sexual anatomy and physiology."
What is the G-Spot?The G-Spot, also known as the Gräfenberg Spot, is a bean-shaped area of the vagina. A significant number of females report that it is an erogenous zone, which can lead to strong sexual arousal when stimulated, resulting in powerful orgasms and female ejaculation.
The G-Spot is located from 1 to 3 inches up the anterior vaginal wall, between its opening and the urethra - it is a sensitive area that could be a part of the female prostate.
There has been disagreement about whether the G-Spot exists at all as a separate structure. Sexologists often express concern that women not experience the G-Spot may see themselves as dysfunctional.
