The G Team

Question

My wife and I had been searching on and off for her G spot for the past couple of months. A few nights ago, bingo, we successfully mastered her pleasure point and did we have a blast. She had seven orgasms in a row and we wanted more. The eighth one was harder to achieve and by the time we reached number nine, I couldn't find her spot anymore, or it was always running away from my fingers. She wanted to come so bad, and I mean sooooo bad. By that time my middle finger was hurting like crazy and the inside of her vagina was so swollen that I couldn't make out what was her G spot and what was not. Is there a limit to the number of orgasms in a row a woman can have from her G spot? Are there any other details I might need to know?

Hooked on the Spot and Wanting to Know More

Answer

Is there a limit to the number of orgasms your fingers can handle might be the better question. I have found no data that offers precise figures—and likely wouldn't, since female sexual response is as varied as women themselves and research around it is scant. Meanwhile, sergeant, what's this all about: "by the time we reached number nine, I couldn't find her spot anymore, or it was always running away from my fingers." Prodding an organ and keeping a scrupulous tally of its reactions until it literally goes AWOL seems a bit hostile. While it appears the number of orgasms some women can have is to some extent limitless, they are, like tequila shots, something you may want to respectfully pace before someone passes out or starts punching people.

Dr. Jim Pfaus shares some current information about the mystical G spot: "Part of the problem is that the tissue there is not equally identifiable in all women. Beverly Whipple at Rutgers claims that all women have one, and I don't disagree, but the 'ribbed' region where it is supposed to be in all women isn't so ribbed in some women, is utterly unidentifiable in others and is a switch for a geyser in others. So looking for it with the precision that anatomists like is almost like studying people who claim to have ESP. They just don't do it on demand in the lab."

The G spot has often been called the female prostate, but Pfaus feels this is a misnomer. "A recent paper used sonography to look at the blood flow to the clitoris," he says. "It turns out the clit is not just the little man in the boat but is actually a huge inner structure that essentially resembles a penis. Where is all that spongiosum that holds blood for the clitoris? In the anteroventral region of the vagina." This is the area where the pelvic bone meets the inner region—typically where the G spot is located. "Essentially this is the tissue that would have become a penis if girls had a crippled X chromosome," says Pfaus. "And it is larger in women who were more androgenized in utero, and perhaps more 'functional' from the standpoint of an erogenous 'zone.' So perhaps the G spot is a region of that inner clitoral complex that has a concentration of nerve endings."

Regardless, until researchers are freed from what Pfaus refers to as the "ethical bondage" that comes with studying sexual response, information around the G spot will remain somewhat controversial. "Is the G spot a relatively androgenized prostate or the tissue that would have become a prostate if the woman had a crippled X chromosome?" he asks. "No one knows, although even Bev Whipple discounts that idea given where it comes from relative to where the prostate comes from. Personally, I am going to put my money behind the clitoral complex. It makes far more sense than a slightly differentiated prostate."

As for your own research, you may find that a toy designed to stimulate the spot helps when your fingers give out or you need a boost. There are many options to choose from, depending on what kind of rigidity and/or vibration your wife enjoys—take a look at ,a href="http://www.tinyurl.com/lqlkxb">www.tinyurl.com/lqlkxb.
