The human body is filled with so many sensitive spots. These include the nipples, the nape of the neck, the earlobes, the clitoris, and then, the G-spot. Famed by many as the ultimate hot-spot, and the one-stop-shop for vaginal orgasm, the G-spot is the sensitive, erogenous zone on the anterior of the vagina.
As female orgasm is not as linear as that of men (which culminates in ejaculation), there are countless essays and researches written it. Especially about the exploration of the erogenous zones of women.
One of such researches was that of Ernst Grafenberg, a German gynecologist, whose research in the 1940s documented this sensitive region within the vagina in some women. But his research, at the time, wasn’t taken all too seriously. It is not until the 1980s that the G-spot term was coined from Grafenberg by Dr. Beverly Whipple. She documented in her own research that making the “come hither” move along the insides of the vagina produced a physical response. This physical response in women could result in orgasm.
Since then, the G-spot has become stuff of popular culture and there is now an obsession about hitting the spot.
Where is the G-spot found exactly?
Is this much-talked-about G-spot an organ? Science says no. The result of a study conducted by researchers in 2017 revealed that the G-spot doesn’t exist as a distinct part of the body.
Hold on, it is not exactly a myth either. The G-spot is just an extension of the clitoris. Or better put, a part of the clitoral network. Hence, when a person hits the so-called G-stop, the person is only stimulating an extension of the clitoris.
Having understood what the female G-spot signifies, let us not now look at the male G-spot. Yes, there is such a thing. Surprised?
The male G-spot
Anyway, the male G-spot, or the P-spot as it is now called, is actually the prostate, which unlike the female G-spot is a distinct part of the body.
Like the female G-spot though, the prostate is located inside the body. The prostate, which increases in size as men age, sits just beneath the bladder and surrounds the urethra — or in layman’s term, one or two inches inside the rectum (which is the passage that leads to the anus) and towards the base of the penis. The prostrate feels like a walnut to touch.
A question that many will now ask is whether this P-spot can also serve the same purpose of pleasure as the female G-spot. But that is a topic that has not been fully explored.
Here’s what you should know
A 2018 study explained that there are two different ways in which the prostate may provide pleasure.
The first theory beams its light on the fact that there is a collection of nerve endings attached to the prostate. This collection of nerve endings when stimulated might provide some form of sexual pleasure. The other theory is that one may attain a state of sexual pleasure if he engages his brain. Simply by channeling his focus towards the stimulation of the prostate.
Whether or not there is any form of pleasure in such stimulation, this is uncharted waters for many. And it doesn’t seem like something, heterosexual Nigerian men may be willing to try out.
