In a recent study, 56 percent of the women interviewed in a sample of 1800 claimed that they had a “g-spot” which is an area inside the vagina with increased sensitivity with respect to sexual arousal.
(Added: See THIS write up of the original research)
But a twin study showed that when one twin claimed whether or not to have a g-spot, the other twin did not make the same claim at the frequency one would expect if the g-spot was the expression of a genetic trait with straight forward Mendelian inheritance.
Therefore, the scientists conclude, the g-spot does not exist. At all.
How can this be? How can 56 percent of the women in a study claim that they have one, but there simply isn’t one?
There are several possibilities, including:
1) There is no g-spot and these 900 or so women only think they have one. But they don’t.
2) The g-spot is not a simple Mendelian genetic trait, but rather, exists because of some combination of genetics and environment. This is a family blog so we won’t discuss what is meant here by “environment.”
3) The g-spot is a thing … trying to be not specific here about what it is … that is real, but does not exist in any way because of genetics.
What do you think?
My source is this press report, hat tip to Virgil Samms, who noted that perhaps it is just that twins don’t have g-spots.
