The G-spot is an allegedly highly erogenous area on the anterior wall of the human vagina. Since the concept first appeared in a popular book on human sexuality in 1982, the existence of the spot has become widely accepted, especially by the general public. This article reviews the behavioral, biochemical, and anatomic evidence for the reality of the G-spot, which includes claims about the nature of female ejaculation. The evidence is far too weak to support the reality of the G-spot… 

Clinical anatomy of the G‐spot

It is shown that while the distal area of the anterior vaginal wall appears to be the most sensitive region of the vagina, the existence of an anatomical “G‐spot” remains to be demonstrated.

Who's afraid of the G-spot?

It is found that this region is not a constant, but can be highly variable from woman to woman, and there still need more research on one of the most challenging aspects of female sexuality.

The G-spot—reality or illusion?

While no direct connection between the G-spot and the paraurethral glands has ever been shown, there is an implication that the parauresthral gland and theG-spot are probably linked, if not the same.

Do We Still Believe There Is a G-spot?

It is indeed a functional, dynamic, and hormone-dependent area (called clitorourethrovaginal, CUV, complex), extremely individual in its development and action due to the combined influence of biological and psychological aspects, which may trigger VAO and in some particular cases also female ejaculation (FE).

Functional anatomy of the human vagina.

It is now apparent that modern sexology cannot be truly 'medical' if female sexual anatomy and the physiology of female sexual response are unknown.

Anatomy of the clitoris and the female sexual response

The clitoris is the center for orgasmic response and is embryologically homologous to the male penis, and it is necessary to understand the intricate anatomy of the organ to assess the data in this regard.

Sexual Organs and Society

Sexual anxieties have brought mankind medical-supported mutilations in spermatorrhoea and the removal of the prepuce is debated, and phantoms of sexual organs are still difficult to explain.

Female ejaculation: An update on anatomy, history, and controversies

There is sufficient evidence to support the existence of the phenomenon of female ejaculation, and various hypotheses from an anatomical and physiological perspective are presented.

This study supports the contention that there are two distinct types of female orgasm, vaginally evoked and clitorally evoked, and supports the finding that some women expel a fluid through the urethra at the time of orgasm.

The Grafenberg spot and female ejaculation: a review of initial hypotheses.

Gynecologists found an area similar to other descriptions of the Grafenberg Spot in four of the 11 women and Examination of the ejaculate of six women failed to detect elevated levels of prostatic acid phosphatase and the substance appeared similar in biochemical properties to urine.

A review of female ejaculation and the Grafenberg spot.

It is indicated that there is insufficient evidence to accept or reject the concept of female ejaculation on scientific grounds, and the claim that "female ejaculate" is similar to semen from a vasectomized male is without foundation.

Female ejaculation: A case study

Objective evidence is provided supporting the hypothesis that female ejaculation, a partial, infertile homologue of male ejaculation exists.

An investigation into the origins of a copious vaginal discharge during intercourse: “enough to wet the bed”‐that “is not urine”

A case study of large‐volume vaginal discharge during intercourse originally prepared in 1979, is described, as is the course of investigation into its origin. It is argued that this “wetting of the

The role of the Grafenberg Spot and female ejaculation in the female orgasmic response: an empirical analysis.

A series of variables thought to be associated with perceptions of the Grafenberg Spot and its relationship, if any, to the female orgasmic response and female ejaculation were explored.

Vaginal erotic sensitivity.

Findings indicate that the vagina of most women has a zone (or zones) of erotic sensitivity whose appropriate stimulation can lead to orgasm; it does not support, however, the particular location and characteristics of the vaginal erogenous zone described by other authors.

Concerning female ejaculation and the female prostate

Findings establish that more similarities than differences exist between men and women in coital responses.

Orgasmic expulsions of women: A review and heuristic inquiry

Abstract A literature review supplemented interviews with informants who were confident they had personal experience with female orgasmic expulsion. It was concluded that female ejaculation of

Development of the vagina in the human fetus.

Investigation into the successive stages of the vaginas developmental events suggest that a caudocranial process occurs in which epithelial cells in the center of the solid cord undergo involution desquamate and are discharged in part of the hymenal opening thus forming the vaginal canal.
