The G-Spot and other myths about sex
The G-Spot
The mythical G-Spot, an erogenous zone in the vagina which when stimulatedcan lead to powerful orgasms, has been a matter of some debate with men andwomen for the 60 years since German gynaecologist Ernst Gräfenberghypothesized about it. However, a recent study of 1,800 British women by King'sCollege London has raised serious doubts about it existence. The research wasconducted on pairs of identical twins between the ages of 23 and 83 and,because identical twins have the same genes, it was expected to show that if theG-Spot existed both sisters would have one. Which it didn't. 'This is by far thebiggest study ever carried out and it shows fairly conclusively that the idea of aG-spot is subjective,' co-author of the study and professor of geneticepidemiology Tim Spector, told press.
Masturbation causes blindness
Probably in an attempt to stop teenagers from doing it, some of the scariest sex-related myths have arisen about masturbation. Among the most common:masturbating causes blindness; will make you grow hairs on the palm of yourhands; could cause sterility in later life. All such theories have been debunkedtime and again by medics but they continue to crop up - probably a reflection of the guilt associated with the activity. In 2007 the College of Optometrists tookthe, er matter into their own hands by declaring categorically that masturbationdoes not cause visual impairment. It said the only correlation between the ideais that semen contains a large amount of zinc and that a deficiency of zinc cancause visual decline, something which would be nearly impossible to achievethrough masturbation.
Size matters
Whether a man's penis size matters to his partner or not, you can bet it mattersto him. The average penis size is between five and six inches erect and aroundthree and a half inches flaccid. An internet survey in 2005 of more than 52,000men and women revealed that only 55 per cent of the male respondents werehappy with their penis size, whereas 85 per cent of participating women saidthey were 'very satisfied' with their partner's penis. Other studies have foundthat many men who believe their penis size to be inadequate are actuallyaverage sized. Such misconceptions derive from the ridiculous (Italian peppergrinder-sized members featured in porn movies) to the unfortunate (theperceptive foreshortening men experience when looking down at their genitalia).Despite the many penis enlarging pumps, pills and practises promulgated byspam emails and internet advertising, few experts would endorse such tools andthey are widely thought to be bogus.
