Yes, yes, yes! The g-spot exists

THAT elusive little button hidden somewhere in the female anatomy, which when pressed produces intense sexual pleasure, has actually been found and photographed by an American scientist.

Since the 1950s the Glorious G has featured in the sealed sections of women's magazines around the world, but scientists have found little physical evidence of its existence.

Florida-based doctor Adam Ostrzenski decided it was time to change that.

He said women throughout the ages had "held the unwavering position that there are distinct areas in the anterior vagina which are responsible for a sensation of great sexual pleasure", and he wanted to prove them right.

In a report published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine on Thursday, Dr Ostrzenski revealed he had dissected the inside of the female sexual organ "layer by layer" until he finally found what he was looking for - in an 83-year-old corpse.

He wrote: "The g-spot was identified as a sac with walls that grossly resembled the fibro connective tissues, was easy to observe, and was a well-delineated structure."

The discovery, Dr Ostrzenski believes, is important because it could lead to "a better understanding of female sexual response".

Apparently all women have one but perhaps unsurprisingly for those who have dedicated many a moment in time to research, the spot it is not the easiest thing to…well…put your finger on.

In fact, based on the scientific evidence, those who wish to flick this supposed magic switch will need to be committed, focused and prepared to get a little creative.

While exact co-ordinates cannot be published, the spot is apparently at least 5cm in from the…um…starting point and should feel like a "tear-shaped sponge" with a head roughly 3.5mm across, middle 3mm across and a 1.5mm tail.

For more information and pictures readers will have to venture to the journal website, but here's a warning - for something that is supposed to produce such a glorious reaction, it's not pretty.
