Clinical anatomy of the G-spot

Clin Anat. 2015 Apr;28(3):363-7. doi: 10.1002/ca.22523. Epub 2015 Mar 4.


The existence of the G-Spot has never been unequivocally confirmed. With increased public exposure and a trend towards sexual gratification, however, the impetus to elucidate this structure is greater than ever. This review will focus on research that has been conducted on the clinical anatomy of the G-Spot. Ultimately this review will show 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.

Keywords: G-spot; Grafenberg Spot; Skene's glands; anterior vaginal wall; clitoris; female ejaculation; sexual medicine.
