Anatomic Existence of the G-Spot Reported

G-spot is distinguishable anatomic structure, located on dorsal perineal membrane

WEDNESDAY, April 25 (HealthDay News) -- The anatomic existence of the G-spot has been documented, and it has been identified as a distinguishable anatomic structure located on the dorsal perineal membrane, according to a study published in the May issue of The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Adam Ostrzenski, M.D., Ph.D., from the Institute of Gynecology in St. Petersburg, Fla. conducted a stratum-by-stratum vaginal wall dissection on a fresh cadaver to identify the anatomic structure of the G-spot.

Ostrzenski located a distinguishable anatomic structure on the dorsal perineal membrane, near the upper part of the urethral meatus, creating a 35-degree angle with the lateral border of the urethra. He identified a well-delineated sac with walls that resembled fibroconnective tissues and looked similar to erectile tissues. Bluish irregularities were visible through the coat on the superior surface of the sac. Blue grape-like anatomic compositions emerged upon opening the upper coat of the sac, with dimensions of 8.1 mm length × 3.6 to 1.5 mm width × 0.4 mm height. Three distinct areas were identified within the G-spot: the head (proximal), the middle part, and a tail (distal) from which a rope-like structure emerged, which disappeared into surrounding tissue after 1.6 mm.

"The anatomic existence of the G-spot was documented in this study with potential impact on the practice and clinical research in the field of female sexual function," Ostrzenski writes.
