Italian scientists, who proved that the semi-mythical G-spot does exist, are investigating whether hirsute women are more likely to have the erogenous zone.
According to the researchers, since hirsute women have higher levels of testosterone, both the clitoris and the G spot are thought to respond to the hormone.
Earlier this year, Emmanuele Jannini at the University of L”Aquila in Italy along with colleagues captured the G-spot on ultrasound for the first time.
According to New Scientist, the researchers discovered clear anatomical differences between women who claim to have vaginal orgasms – as opposed to clitoral – and those that don’t.
Women capable of orgasm during penetrative sex have a thicker tissue area in the region between the vagina and the urethra – meaning it’s now easy to medically tell the difference between the lucky “cans” and the “can-nots”.
Interestingly, the boffins also believe that women with the thicker tissue can be ‘taught’ to have vaginal orgasms, if they can’t already.
Ultrasound scans on 30 women uncovered G spots in just eight of them and when these women were asked if they had vaginal orgasms during sex, only five of them said yes. However, when the remaining three were shown their G spots on the scan and given advice on how to stimulate it, two of them subsequently “discovered” the joy of vaginal orgasms.
“This demonstrated, although in a small sample, the use of [vaginal ultrasound] in teaching the vaginal orgasm,” Jannini says.
Sadly, none of the have-nots had vaginal orgasms either before or after the scans, so they’ll just have to make do with the old-fashioned clitoral kind.
The results were presented at the Italian Society of Andrology and Sexual Medicine in Rome in November.
