It was back in 1950 when a doctor described a "surprisingly sensitive spot inside the vagina near the urethra." He made this very distinct erogenous spot sound like it was relatively easy to find and stimulate. After all, if he could do it during research on his patients - surely any woman could do it as well. In the 1980s, Grafenberg's spot became known as the "G spot" and outside his own research - it has been anything BUT an easy spot to deal with.
For some women stimulation of the G spot means amazing and beyond description orgasms; for others it means a trip to the bathroom to urinate because of stimulation. Some researchers scoffed at the notion of such an area of the anatomy and called it mythological. Scientists still disagree about whether it is a separate gland, the deep down part of the clitoris or something else. Something tells me we need more women researchers looking into this geography and precisely identifying it so we CAN ALL ENJOY!!
Are you like me and wonder about those yogurt commercials that advertise probiotics? A couple of years ago, I would have turned my nose at them, but increasingly researchers are looking into the health benefits of healthy bacteria and other “critters” that live in our body.
Welcome to your microbiome!
Smithsonian.com pointed out that technological advances have really opened a window into microbial life – bacteria, fungi and viruses -- both in and around the body. Stating that this huge effort involves multiple key stakeholders (think international research partnership using leading edge DNA sequencing technology and datasets), the website added, “It also promises the biggest turnaround in medical thinking in 150 years, replacing the single-minded focus on microbes as the enemy with a broader view that they are also our essential allies.” That’s because the microbes have approximately eight million genes that collaborate in helping humans function, ...
