Named for Ernst Grafenberg, the doctor who first wrote about it in 1950, the G-spot is said to be an especially sensitive area on the front vaginal wall that, for some women, swells when stimulated and leads to intense vaginal orgasm.
Experts believe it can be found between the back of the pubic bone and the cervix, following the urethra (the tube that connects the bladder to the genitals and removes fluids from the body).
The G-spot is sometimes considered a myth. Many women are unable to find it. Researchers have also had difficulty pinpointing its exact location, even with radiography.
Beverly Whipple, who has studied the area along with John Perry, has said that the G-spot is “difficult to palpate in an unstimulated state.”
