The G-Spot:  Fact or Fiction?

        I have heard about women having multiple orgasms and having powerful orgasms that spray out of the vagina. I would like to learn about this... Could you tell me how to start this?

       These types of orgasms and the idea of female ejaculation comes from the concept that there is a G spot within the woman's vagina that when stimulated will cause these sensations.  I have spoken to many, many gynecologists, none of whom have seen any scientific proof that such a G spot exists. On the other hand, in the letters I get, I do receive letters from women, or men reporting abut their partners, who say they have had such experiences.  The only conclusion I can draw is that some women may have a sensitive area in the vagina that can give them these strong orgasms and cause some sort of liquid to spurt from their vagina. I do not believe that most women have this capacity or I would receive more letters on this subject, and doctors would know more about it. So if you want to have your partner try to locate a "G spot" in your vagina (supposedly it is located on the inner front wall) then go right ahead. Just don't get frustrated, or angry at him, if he he's not successful.
About Dr. Ruth
Dr. Ruth Westheimer is a psychosexual therapist who helped to pioneer the field of media psychology with her radio program, Sexually Speaking. It began in September of 1980 as a fifteen minute, taped show that aired Sundays after midnight on WYNY-FM (NBC) in New York. One year later it became a live, one-hour show airing at 10 PM on which Dr. Ruth, as she became known, answered call-in questions from listeners. Soon it became part of a communications network to distribute Dr. Westheimer's expertise which has included television, books, newspapers, games, home video, computer software and her own website, www.drruth.com.

Born in Germany in 1928, Dr. Westheimer was sent to a children's home in Switzerland at the age of ten which became an orphanage for most of the German Jewish students who had been sent there to escape the Holocaust. At 17 she went to Israel where she fought for that country's independence as a member of the Haganah, the Jewish freedom fighters. She then moved to Paris where she studied at the Sorbonne and taught kindergarten. She immigrated to the U.S. in 1956 where she obtained her Masters Degree in Sociology from the Graduate Faculty of the New School of Social Research. In 1970, she received a Doctorate of Education (Ed.D.) in the Interdisciplinary Study of the Family from Columbia University Teacher's College.
She worked for Planned Parenthood for a time and it was that experience that prompted her to further her education in human sexuality by studying under Dr. Helen Singer Kaplan at New York Hospital-Cornell University Medical Center. She later participated in the program for five years as an Adjunct Associate Professor. She has also taught at Lehman College, Brooklyn College, Adelphi University, Columbia University and West Point.

Currently Dr. Westheimer is an Adjunct Professor at N.Y.U. and an Associate Fellow of Calhoun College at Yale University, where she teaches a course on the Jewish family, and a Fellow of Butler College at Princeton University, where she teaches a similar course.  She is a fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine and in addition to having her own private practice, she frequently lectures at universities across the country and has twice been named "College Lecturer of the Year."

I have located her G-spot, felt the swelling and the roughness of it. But it seems she holds back every time. I know she can squirt if she stops holding back (she wants too). I try more pressure than other time. I just don't know what to do, she wants to squirt I just don't get it!!

First of all I need to congratulate you. You’ve located a woman’s G spot, something no medical doctor has ever done. I don’t understand why she’s not squirting out gallons of liquid thanks to your discovery. OK, sorry for the sarcasm, but while there is anecdotal evidence that stimulating a spot in the vagina can trigger orgasms that may also lead to a gushing of liquid, there is no scientific evidence for a G spot whatsoever. So maybe it exists and maybe it doesn’t, but you certainly shouldn’t blame your partner for not squirting. Since so few women report this effect, if it does exist, it is certainly not common. And the truth is you, or any man, have zero proof that you’ve located a so-called G spot without actually triggering an orgasm, so that even if your partner could have such orgasms (and my guess is that she can’t) there’s no vaginal GPS system that would guarantee to guide you to its exact location. So if you want to keep trying once in a while, go right ahead and if you meet with success, let us know. But since the odds are stacked against you, stop putting pressure on your partner.
