G-Spot Found?

Vaginal Dissection Reveals Elusive G-Spot, Surgeon Says

G-Spot? Maybe Not continued...

But whether there is an anatomical structure corresponding to this sensation, or whether stimulation simply affects other sensitive areas of a woman's anatomy, remains a matter of controversy.

There is no scientific evidence that any gynecologic procedure can enhance a woman's G-spot sensitivity. But many gynecologic surgeons offer such procedures. Ostrzenski himself performed such operations, according to his resume. And the surgeon who photographed his dissection, Mark Scheinberg, MD, offers women collagen injections -- the controversial "G-shot" -- at his clinic in Deerfield Beach, Fla.

And Ostrzenski says he's working on a new procedure to improve G-spot sensitivity in women whose vaginal structure is "distorted." He plans to call it "G-Spot Plasty."

X Marks the G-Spot

If Ostrzenski has indeed located the anatomical G-spot, why hasn't anybody else found it?

Ostrzenski says that during his long career as a gynecologic surgeon, he's found that textbooks often are inaccurate about the details of female sexual anatomy.

After deducing that the G-spot must lie deep beneath the muscles of the vaginal wall, Ostrzenski reasoned that the structure, if it existed, could only be found in a fresh corpse not yet fixed with tissue-altering formaldehyde.

In his seven-hour dissection, the Poland-trained surgeon carefully cut away layer after layer of the vaginal wall. He cut through five layers of tissue and muscle to reveal a bluish sac sitting atop a structure called the perineal membrane.

After opening the sac, Ostrzenski found a bluish tissue resembling a tiny bunch of grapes with a white rope-like tail. It was less than a third of an inch long, from 0.14 to 0.05 inches wide, and 0.016 inches tall.

"This is definitely not anywhere near a routine dissection," Estes says. "The structure itself is very, very small. I could see that unless you were very, very careful, you could easily go right through the tissues and not find it."

How can something that small play a role in sexuality? Ostrzenski says the tissue looks like erectile tissue. Under pressure, he speculates, the tissue would lift the vaginal wall, either triggering sensations around the clitoris or possibly sending out its own set of sexual sensations.
