At least according to this study:

What an anti-climax: G-spot is a myth

While 56% of women overall claimed to have a G-spot, they tended to be younger and more sexually active
Lois Rogers

A sexual quest that has for years baffled millions of women " and men " may have been in vain. A study by British scientists has found that the mysterious G-spot, the sexual pleasure zone said to be possessed by some women but denied to others, may not exist at all.

The scientists at King’s College London who carried out the study claim there is no evidence for the existence of the G-spot " supposedly a cluster of internal nerve endings " outside the imagination of women influenced by magazines and sex therapists. They reached their conclusions after a survey of more than 1,800 British women.

“Women may argue that having a G-spot is due to diet or exercise, but in fact it is virtually impossible to find real traits,” said Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology, who co-authored the research. “This is by far the biggest study ever carried out and it shows fairly conclusively that the idea of a G-spot is subjective.”

In the research, 1,804 British women aged 23-83 answered questionnaires. All were pairs of identical or non-identical twins. Identical twins share all their genes, while non-identical pairs share 50% of theirs. If one identical twin reported having a G-spot, this would make it far more likely that her sister would give the same answer. But no such pattern emerged, suggesting the G-spot is a matter of the woman’s subjective opinion.


While 56% of women overall claimed to have a G-spot, they tended to be younger and more sexually active. Identical twins were no more likely to share the characteristic than non-identical twins.

Andrea Burri, who led the research, said she was anxious to remove feelings of “inadequacy or underachievement” that might affect women who feared they lacked a G-spot...............

Well, say what they may about there being one.....the search was fun.

@dlowan,
I suspect their methodology. While the study was conducted on twins, a questionnaire is still subjective, and subject to differences in the sexual experiences of the responders.

What they really need is an active study....

What does this mean? (Sounds like an expression of bias to me.)

@dlowan,
I am very dubious of these results. Seriously. I'd thumb my nose at them if noses existed.

@patiodog,
OF course, noses don't exist and I have proof that my thesis is true....

You see any noses in this photograph? Ergo there are no such things as noses.

@patiodog,
Sounds good to me.

You've got one hell of a nose to thumb, too.

Frankly, I feel cheated.

I woke up this morning with a possible G spot possibly in situ.......and now I have been told I have nothing.
