There was a guy in my fraternity who claimed that his Grandfather, or somesuch relative was the doctor who "discovered" the "G" spot.


Graffenberg was his name.


Graffenberg's Forgotten Discovery

Back in the early 1940s, a German gynecologist, Ernst Graffenberg, along with an American colleague, Robert Dickinson, discovered "a zone of erogenous feeling...located along the suburethral surface of the anterior vaginal wall." In a 1950 article in the International Journal of Sexology, Graffenberg asserted that this erogenous zone contained erectile tissue, and swelled when massaged, and during orgasm.


Graffenberg did not name this area. At the time it was called, the "urethral sponge," the area on the front wall of the vagina about a finger length in from the vaginal opening that surrounds the urethra. Many sexologists continue to call this area the urethral sponge today.


Graffenberg's research lay virtually forgotten until the 1980s when sexologists John Perry and Beverly Whipple rediscovered the fact that virtually all women have an area of sexual sensitivity on the front wall of the vagina. In their studies, 90 to 100 percent of up to 400 women identified a sensitive area in the front vaginal wall. They unearthed Graffenberg's old research, and decided to rename the area known as the urethral sponge after him, the Graffenberg spot, or G-spot.
