The G spot
" As you go in, on the first floor, the back window"
That's how a character in the book " 11 minutes" by Paulo Coelho , described the location of theGspot, and with that sentence i started the process of finding out more.
We don't have any means of sexual education in Egypt. It really is up to the family, friends, and the person itself. Sexuality and sex are regarded taboo subjects, although i have notticed alot that the very traditional families coming from manate2 masreya sha3beya, actually talk about Sex & sexulaity, very openly, something that is at first quite embarassing and shocking, but then u realise how acceptable and insightful it is.
We never had any educational talks about our bodies, and how they change, and how to be comfortable with such changes that take us from one phase to another. Even the rare occasions where teachers had to explain something related to sex, you could see how embarrased and flustered they are, and that in turn makes you even more embarassed and confused.
I remeber once, 8 years ago, when i attended the only thing that could be called a lecture on Sex and Health issues . It was part of Always promotion camapaign, They visited several schools , and gathered the girls to talk with them about " girls' stuff" as we tend to call it. It really surprised me the uncertainty and confusion most of the girls showed once they had a chance to open up and talk to someone.
Back to that first sentence...i find it quite stonishing to describe the G spot in such way, i don't know if Paulo came up with it, or heard it from someone, whoever described it in such manner, has my eternal respect :)
It turns out that " G spot existance" and the fluids released from it on orgasmic stimulation, raised alot of debates,
As early as the 4th century B.C., writings have been found that speak of the distinction between a woman's "red and white fluid". Even American Indian folklore mentions the "mixing of male and female fluids" from a female during sex.
In the 20th century, however, there was the general belief that women were incapable of such intense orgasm, except by clitoral manipulation. This was reinforced by Masters & Johnson whose research claimed that a woman's clitoris was the only source of female pleasure, even though many women have found that to be far from the truth.
This misguided notion of a woman's sexual potential persisted until 1950 when an article by a Berlin gynecologist Ernst Grafenberg discussed the female G-spot area. In his original work he reported that some women had a spot on the inside of the front wall of the vagina which, when firmly stimulated produced intense orgasms and in some women ejaculation of something thicker and slicker than urine during the strongest contractions of their orgasms.
Now this gyneocologist Grafenberg, is why we call it G spot, since it is named after him. I personally think that he is one hell of a lucky guy, and i could bet that not a day passes without some woman feeling in awe of his discovery.
I decided to ask the girls i know about the G spot and the Clitoris. The majority knew about the clitoris, probably because of the 7'etan issue, but none of the girls at university with me knew about the Gspot. And my friends, some of them know it, and others know about it, but they don't have a clear idea of what or where is it? they have a notion that it's a sexy thing ,( maybe like G-strings are sexy, so it is to be assumed that anything starting with a G is sexy...Lucky Gihan and Gehad ;) )
Someone once was trying to explain to me the importance of a sport skill once you get the sense of it..it was very vague, then i found him saying:
" It's like the Gspot, you can't really explain or define it, but once you get to feel it, you see the world very differently"
