Plastic Surgery Invades the G-spot
LOVE-YOUR-BODY WARNING: THE G-SHOT OR ANY COLLAGEN AUGMENTATION OF THE G-SPOT IS UNNECESSARY AND MAY BE HARMFUL
by Deborah Sundahl
A new plastic surgery procedure, called the G-shot, which injects collagen into the G-spot to create arousal and increase its size, has attracted media attention. Women should be cautioned against this procedure for these seven reasons:
1) The G-spot is the female prostate. It is an organ, not a spot. In 2001, the term ‘female prostate’ was defined in Histology Terminology, the medical journal responsible for naming anatomical parts. Unfortunately, doctors who are performing this G-shot procedure are mostly uninformed on this fact, because previous to this, the medical profession has considered the female prostate vestigial “dried up and non-functioning,” or denied its existence altogether – as one gynecologist so eloquently put it in USA Today, “The G-spot is as real as a UFO.” On the G-shot website and most other resources, this organ is still depicted as a spot. Therefore, too little is known about the female prostate in general, much less the effects that collagen injections would have on the numerous (up to 48) tiny ducts and glands that make up the female prostate — the G-spot.
2) The location of the G-spot on the G-shot website and many other resources is uninformed and erroneous. The female prostate’s glands and ducts, surrounded by erectile tissue, is sprinkled along the urethral canal. It begins at the outside opening of the urethra, and extends approximately two inches along urethral canal. Since the urethral canal parallels the vaginal canal, the G-spot can therefore be felt 1) around the opening of the urethra (urethral meatus area); 2) at the opening of the vagina, and 3) just inside the vagina through the vaginal roof.
In her book, Deborah Sundahl defines the head, body and tail of the G-spot. The G-spot’s head surrounds the urethral opening and continues to the vaginal opening. The body is just inside the vaginal opening, where one can feel the famous G-spot ridges. The tail is the area approximately two inches inside the vagina where one’s finger naturally curves around the tail of this organ, and is the famous location where most women feel the most sensation — only if they have not yet awakened their entire G-spot. In a fully awakened G-spot, the entire organ is sensitive.
3) The size of the G-spot on the G-shot website and many other resources is incorrect. The G-shot website states that collagen injection will make the G-spot “…about the size of a quarter in width, and one fourth of an inch in height (meaning the projection into the vagina)” A collagen injected G-spot is the same size as a normal woman’s aroused G-spot! Therefore, collagen injection into the G-spot is unnecessary, and a questionable sales hype with serious health risks.
4) The G-shot procedure is a potential health risk. The long list of 68 health risks listed on the G-shot website is blood curdling. The procedure is not approved by the FDA, and the G-shot website states the collagen they use is second-rate, “an ‘off label’ use”.
Plastic surgeons do not know the full risks involved in collagen injections to the G-spot, if they do not know that the G-spot is the female prostate!
5) A feminist issue — the G-shot procedure takes advantage of women who are sexually frustrated. Many women feel thwarted in their attempts at trying to find their G-spots and/or awaken its natural state of ultra-sensitivity due to the lack of information and outright neglect of the G-spot’s (female prostate’s) central role in female sexuality. This ignorance, caused by a medical profession that still carries misogynistic attitudes towards women’s bodies, is the root of many women’s sexual complaints, as well as stress and divorce in many marriages. Women need to actively protest against attitudes that put their bodies and health at risk, and denigrate and minimize their sexuality at the expense of selling a questionable (and costly – $1,800 to $6,00) G-shot procedure.
6) The real problem: Most women do not feel aroused by their G-spot. Since the G-spot is the female prostate, it is therefore ultra sensitive. What is going on with women that most do not feel exquisite feelings in their vagina, since this organ – as men can attest to – is by nature extremely sensitive?
Switching gender roles for a moment may help us understand this situation. What would men do if their partners came at them with a hard, large dildo, and rammed it to their prostates? Perhaps numb out? Perhaps shut down sexually? Perhaps say, “Not tonight, dear. I have a headache?” Perhaps find it difficult to have an orgasm, and then feel confused (and perhaps a little abused) when the culture cries from every corner that 1) men are not as easily aroused as women; 2) perhaps men are not orgasmic and just not meant to have orgasms; and 3) the most insulting discourse yet: what is the evolutionary nature of the male orgasm anyway?
7) The solution: Use a natural cure. A woman’s G-spot deserves time and attention, not injections! It is fairly easy to awaken these sensations with informed education, as well as some healthy erotic techniques. When the G-spot’s sensations are naturally awakened, they are more exquisite than the sensation of being pumped up with collagen — and under a woman’s control!
