With Miri’s post last week about her patchouli-wearing plumber’s advice (i.e., “Don’t share your snake with your neighbors”), my mind immediately started thinking about body parts. Maybe it’s because I’m due to read 50 Shades of Grey so we can hold this book club I’ve been touting. So I better get on some Monday morning sex talk.
Okay, here we go. G-spots. According to a new study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine researchers have found anatomical evidence–on an 83-year-old woman’s cadaver no less–that a G-spot does in fact exist. Yet, when I heard about this finding, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. I’ve never been a big proponent of the G-spot because well, I don’t know exactly if I have one. I’ve had vibrators that have told me that it will tickle or whatever this G-spot, but in the end, it’s all about a clitoral orgasm for me, thanks.
Though the head researcher thinks that this will “lead to the improvement of female sexual function” –I’m not sure how this solves anything about G-spots or our sexuality. Doesn’t this study conspicuously sound like a Cosmo headline to you?
How To Have Orgasms at 83!
Elderly Woman (Finally!) Finds G-Spot–So Can You!
Can we just agree that sex is entirely different to each person just like an orgasm is. You might want to be slapped like our heroine in 50 Shades of Grey, but your neighbor wants to tie her husband up. To me, while these studies are amazing for anatomical reasons–as Debby Herbenick writes in the Daily Beast–but for little else. No need to explore and then feel utterly disappointed about not finding what you were looking for or worse, beat yourself up because it’s not there at all.
With this said, the 50 Shades of Grey book club is still… coming.
Turn back in a few days to discuss!
