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!!
I have a pretty rudimentary view of the caveman era. I picture men, clubbing women over the head, bringing them home to provide for them and to pro-create , and deciding their women are beautiful when baby is born. I don't think that checking out their woman's vagina was ever on their list of priorities . But then again, they had bigger monsters to fear.
Cut to my life in the land of the beautiful - Beverly Hills - where beauty is a multi-million dollar industry and doctors are apparently creating vaginas that look like flowers , unmasking women's clitoris' (for supposed "better pleasure"), potentiating the G-spot and re-creating virgin-like hymens (I really don't even know why). Folks, you've got too much time and money on your hands if you are looking down there and trying to create some level of " perceived beauty ." And frankly, if a guy's comment about your region, down under, can send you off with such lowered self esteem that you would seek...
