A team of researchers have sensationally claimed that the elusive female G-Spot may not actually exist.

After reviewing the results of 100 medical studies carried out over the past 60 years, the scientists have said none of them have evidence to suggest the G-Spot is a real part of the female body.    

Sexual therapists, pornography and explicit magazines have been blamed for the lasting perception of the G-Spot, which originally rose to fame in the 1950s.

The researchers now hope their claims will comfort partners who are feeling under pressure to find the zone that is commonly believed to be conducive to sexual pleasure.

The G-Spot is thought to be an area inside a female’s body which contain a high concentration of nerve endings.

When stimulated, it is said to lead to intense feelings of sexual satisfaction and pleasure.

As part of their study the scientists, who are from Connecticut’s Yale-New Haven Hospital in the US, studied a number of female tissue biopsies.

They recorded inconclusive results because although some biopsies contained a large number of nerve endings, other contained a very low concentration.

These results support the findings of previous research carried out at London’s King College which resulted in similar claims; that there is no evidence to support the theory of the G-Spot’s existence.

 “Objective measures have failed to provide strong and consistent evidence for the existence of an anatomical site that could be related to the famed G-spot,” said Dr Amichai Kilchevsky, the study’s lead researcher.

“Lots of women feel almost as though it is their fault they can't find it. The reality is that it is probably not something, historically or evolutionarily, that should even exist,” he added.

The results of the study have been published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
