Sexologist explains the G spot isn't what you think it is

Sexologist explains the G spot isn't what you think it is

In this FYI episode, LADbible sat down with Sexologist Georgia Grace who talked about science's understanding of the G Spot.

Sexologist Georgia Grace has opened up about science's new breakthrough in understanding the G Spot.

Ms Grace sat down with LADbible Australia for an episode of FYI to explain to people all over the world about that hard to find spot during intimate moments.

“Many of us grew up and didn’t receive any education. All of the information was quite binary and very heterosexual,” said Grace.

“And it was all about sexual shame really.”

Because of this, Grace says there seems to be a gap in our knowledge of sexual pleasure.

“Because so much research hasn’t been done into pleasure or orgasms or bodies because there was a lot of fear and shame around sex and pleasure, we don’t know a whole lot," she said.

Nowhere is this research more lacking than around our understanding of the clitoris.

“It’s really wild that research and ideas about the clit have only emerged over the past decade or so,” said Grace.

“We didn’t even know if the G-Spot was an actual thing, and it was this kind of myth that was named after a man.”

But thanks to the work of an Australian urologist, Helen O’Connell, science’s understanding of what the G Spot is has drastically improved.

“The G Spot isn’t this sort of weird little spot, it’s actually part of the whole entire clitoral network,” said Grace.

“I think it’s a really exciting time for us because the possibilities and awareness that we have of orgasm and pleasure is just evolving each year.”

Survey results from Normal’s ‘Big Australian Sex Survey 2022’ found that three in five Australians, or 61 percent either ‘always’ or ‘almost always’ orgasm during partnered sex.

As part of their annual survey, Normal have found there has traditionally been a gap between the orgasm experience between male-identifying respondents and female-identifying respondents.

The term has been dubbed ‘The Orgasm Gap’ and refers to the phenomenon of orgasm disparity, which occurs particularly in, but not just limited to, heterosexual relationships.

The Gap has been attributed by researchers to the lack of knowledge and understanding around the clitoris.

So with sex education and understanding on the rise, there has also been a closing of the orgasm gap, with Normal reporting 46 percent of females, up from 39 percent last year, regularly orgasming during sex.

Additionally, 58 percent of respondents said that they felt confident in identifying and bringing pleasure to the clitoris.

“We put so much pressure on ourselves to achieve,” said Grace. “Rather than just kind of like co-creating and experiencing with someone.”
