Vaginal orgasms are a 'myth', researchers claim

New study claims terms are wrong and need to be reconsidered

There is no such thing as a vaginal orgasm, a clitoral orgasm or even a G-spot, a new study claims.

Instead, a paper published in the journal Clinical Anatomy says, the correct term should be "female orgasm".

According to the report, the descriptions of female sexual organs are wrong. It claims the “internal clitoris does not exist” because the entire clitoris is, in fact, an external organ.

The study says that the majority of women do not orgasm during penetrative sex and the ‘vaginal’ orgasm reported by some women is in fact caused by the surrounding erectile organs – or stimulation of the clitoris.

Although it is impossible to have a clitoral orgasm, women cannot orgasm without stimulation of the clitoris.

Writing in the study, published earlier this week, the researchers say: “female orgasm is possible in all women, always with effective stimulation of the female erect organs”.

Previously, it was believed that G-spot, vaginal or clitoral orgasm were all different types of climax.

The study attacks much of what has previously been written about female erogenous zones, claiming: “G-spot/vaginal/clitoral orgasm, vaginally activated orgasm, and clitorally activated orgasm, are incorrect terms”.

Describing female ejaculation, premature ejaculation, and G-spot amplification, the study also claims these are “terms without scientific basis.”
