Is the Vaginal Orgasm a Myth?


Let’s discuss the latest study on the female orgasm entitled Anatomy of sex: Revision of the new anatomical terms used for the clitoris and the female orgasm by sexologists by Vincenzo Puppo and Giulia Puppo.

I love science and understand that the “current” belief systems change with new evidence, but this scientific study seems flawed to me. They used MRIs of the vagina to conclude that there is only one type of orgasm, clitoral and that the G-spot doesn’t exist.

In college, I took research methods and it was impressed upon us that expectations tend to slant outcomes in results. Therefore, I’m a skeptic where most research is concerned. Many studies are crafted for a specific outcome (just check out pharmaceutical studies to get my meaning).

But why do you say this study is flawed, Blakely? Well, I’ll tell you and thanks for asking!

I have a hard time arguing with the whether or not vaginal orgasms exist since I don’t have them. However, I find it hard to believe that 30% of the female population is lying. The study didn’t observe orgasms like the Masters and Johnson studies but merely gave the women MRIs.

The study states there is no anatomy in the vagina that can cause an orgasm and that the penis rarely encounters the clitoris during coitus. “The majority of women worldwide do not have orgasms during intercourse: as a matter of fact, female sexual dysfunctions are popular because they are based on something that does not exist, i.e. the vaginal orgasm.”

The flawed part for me pertains to the non-existent G-Spot. If it doesn’t exist, then how do I experience female ejaculation? Please don’t give me the pee debate. I pee just before sex and trust me, the quantities of release defy rationale just like Niagara Falls.

If this study is correct, then how do you explain women who gush and squirt? I assure you that I couldn’t fake the copious amount of the waterworks or the intensity of release.

I’ve always thought there were at least three types of orgasms for woman of which I have two: Clitoral and G-spot, but not vaginal.

I’ve never really understood why the clitoris is positioned ABOVE the vaginal opening. It seems a real flaw in evolution. However, if you think in terms of satisfaction without potential pregnancy, it rather makes sense.

The study is very clear in its findings: “Female orgasm is possible in all women, always with effective stimulation of the female erectile organs, e.g. the female penis, during masturbation, cunnilingus, partner masturbation, and also during vaginal/anal intercourse simply by stimulating the clitoris with a finger (Puppo, 2011a, 2013a).”

I plan to continue enjoying sex just the same and whether or not there is a G-Spot matter little to me. The orgasms still cometh.

Please tell me what you think about the study. I would also love to hear from those women out there that have vaginal orgasms.

  1. I think the study is wrong. I too believe there are 3 types of orgasms. I have had the vaginal and clitoris but not the g spot. I got close to having a g spot orgasm but had to stop before I got asked the way there. Great posts Blakely!

  2. I don’t believe that study one bit! While I have had vaginal orgasms, I don’t have them every time. I also have ex boyfriends who would refute the results of said study.
    I do wonder how many of the participating scientists were women though;-)

    • Going by the name of the of the people running the study, I believe it was a man and a woman. Possible a married couple.

      Thanks for commenting!

      Warm hugs,

  3. haha! I find it funny that people put time and money into studying something to find out why women enjoy something! What difference does it make WHY?! All that matters is that it is enjoyable. If people quit being closed-minded and open themselves up to experiences they will find a lot of things more enjoyable to experience…sex included! I am a woman who has female ejaculations as well…I don’t even care if people want to say that I am peeing…matters not to me or my partner. What does matter is the amazing feeling of release and satisfaction that comes with it! Like you the copius amounts fluid released during “squirting” defies the rationale that I am peeing! I have had multiple ejaculations in one encounter also that have soaked my partner (happily mind you) and will continue to try to have as many as I can for as long as I can! :)

  4. You seem to not understood the study. Master and Johnson said exactly the same thing Puppo said. Master and Johnson said that the orgasm with intercourse is the same as the clitoridian, and that there is only one orgasm “the female orgasm”.
