it used to be that clitoral orgasms were considered to be abnormal or substandard. funny turnaround.

Ya just know that the headlines you cite were written by some aging-yet-puerile male editor who claims he's clever. (Think Scott Anderson, John Robson, or anybody at the Stun) Anyway, I bet few of them have ever had vaginal or clitoral orgasms...

Um, the g-spot is not that hard to find. I think it's hilarious that scientists are using all of this fancy equipment to find it.

Another service that lesbians have to offer the world ...

Come on scientists. I'm a 17 year old girl and I know it exists. Granted, I am more secually aware than many 17 year olds, but still.
Men should stop thinking they know anything about vaginas. They like to think they know, but really, they don't.

...maybe they should get out more and do some field research!

Oh, I don't know, La Canadienne. I've definitely had the luck of meeting at least a few men who knew quite a bit about vaginas. They just didn't go around saying that they knew how "women" came.

It *is* kind of funny that they needed all sorts of fancy equipment. The New Scientist article had some good points about the way the study was carried out. But sadly, no one mentioned dykes. Underutilized, for sure!

Why does a title with "nails" and "G spot" in it make me feel a little queasy?...looks around for nail clippers

In my formative years I managed to find my dad's stash of "naughty" mags of a mid to late 70's vintage in a box in the crawlspace... (of course I took interest in those magazine purely for the articles and not the pictorials! ;-) )

That said I did read a more than a few articles it seems about the G-spot, female orgasm, etc. Information that would serve me well in the future, it should be required reading for every guy!

For whatever reason it really seemed to be in vogue at that point in time. I see it as a progress to all the counterculture and free love of the hippies and perhaps the feminist movement that really started to gain momentum in the 70's but I digress.

One article in particular sticks out in my mind "Harnessing the Power of the Female Orgasm"... The title page was adroned with a Victorian-era drawing of man hooking up some electrodes from some Wellsian contraption under the ground-length skirts of a bonnet wearing "proper" looking woman... quite the picture and it gave me an idea of how limited science's knowledge of the sexual side of things really was! Given that and knowing what the vibrator was actually invented as a treatment for really makes you see how mysogynistic the science profession is!

Reading those recent articles you can see that not much progress has been made since the 70's! I'd figure with more women in the sciences now it would have changed. I guess not. Here's hoping for the future!
