Shakira’s G Spot – El Sol de México

The G Spot does not exist. We must begin by explaining where this myth comes from. In 1950, German gynecologist Ernst Gräfenberg described an area of ​​increased sensitivity on the anterior wall of the vagina and published it in the “International Journal of Sexology.”

Gräfenberg never called it “G-Spot”, other publications on sexuality and popular culture took care of that. However, referring to women having a kind of button that triggers orgasms is quite controversial.

Now that Shakira mentions the G Point in the lyrics of her song “Puntería” we have to give context, because since the Colombian made public her breakup with the former Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué, her statements and her releases are the subject of sexuality education.

In “Puntería” it is inevitable to think of the so-called “soft porn” when listening to the song and watching the video. No problem. The eroticism market is very broad and Shakira wants to be part of it.

When he says a phrase like: “I never address you. You always reach my G-spot”, we must qualify and insist that each person is the owner of their own pleasure. In recent years, feminist movements and sex educators have insisted that we must dismantle the myth that another person will give you the greatest pleasure of your life.

Patriarchy and the G Spot

At some point in the history of society, the idea began to be nurtured that women did not have sexuality and that they had canceled the possibility of feeling pleasure.

Then the famous psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud went so far as to say that vaginal orgasm was the result of normal psychosexual development in mature women, but that clitoral orgasms were part of “immature sexuality.” A rather controversial statement for attributing to vaginal penetration a status that cannot be generalized.

The Netflix series “The Pleasure Principles” is a documented critique of why it has taken science so long to investigate the anatomy of the clitoris. It was not until 1998, when Australian urologist Helen O’Connell challenged the traditional view that the clitoris was simply a small, superficial structure, by revealing with magnetic resonance imaging that it is a rather complex internal anatomical structure.

This research has been fundamental in demystifying and banishing misconceptions about female sexuality, including the so-called G Spot; That is to say, it has already been scientifically ruled out that there is a kind of switch for female ecstasy.

Three-dimensional animations have helped to understand that female reproductive organs are not static, much less flat as they appear in the monographs of the 80s.

In “The Principles of Pleasure” it is explained that when the erectile tissue of the clitoris enlarges due to arousal, it can press on the front wall of the vagina. So what we think of as the G-Spot is actually the clitoris stimulated from within.

in the column The science of orgasm I wrote about why some women can’t orgasm from vaginal penetration, but can orgasm from masturbation. This is due to the distance between the clitoris and the urethra: At a distance equal to or less than 2.5 centimeters from the urinary tract, it is possible to reach orgasm through penetration. At a greater distance, then direct stimulation on the genital area will be necessary.

Another fact about the clitoris is that it is not a small spot, as you might think of the G Spot. Not at all. Although we only see the external part, inside there is an organ with a length of between 7 and 12 cm, including the corpus cavernosum. Now, imagine that with sexual arousal, the clitoris fills with blood, enlarges and is more sensitive, which is why pressure or vibrations on that area will cause pleasurable sensations.
