38 – The G-spot is Not a Spot
You likely have heard of the Grafenberg spot, or G-spot, as it is more commonly known. The G-spot has had some pretty good PR since it was named in the 1980s, and it has really become a household name. But what if I told you, there is actually no such thing! A combination of misunderstanding the bodies of people with vulvas and the continued influence of Freudian ideas about orgasms has led to a bit of an obsession about the G-spot. On this episode of Do We Know Things?, I will explore the history of the G-spot, explain why it’s not a thing, and tell you about my own G-spot phobia.
Anatomy! What do we know? Do We Know Things? Let’s find out!
