French tell British boffins: G-spot does exist.

Byline: ANI

London, Jan 29 (ANI): The search for G-spot has begun all over again, courtesy the French who've dismissed British scientists' claims that the fabled erogenous zone doesn't exist.

Weeks after King's College London scientists declared that the elusive G-spot may be a myth, a group of gynaecologists in Paris launched a counter-attack on what they called a "totalitarian" approach to female sexuality.

Denouncing the claim, Sylvain Mimoun, the organizer of the conference, said that G-spot exists in many women - around 60percent, reports The Times.

"The King's College study ... shows a lack of respect for what women say," said Pierre Foldhs, a leading French surgeon. "The conclusions were completely erroneous because they were based solely on genetic observations and it is clear that in female sexuality there is a variability ... It cannot be reduced to a 'yes' or 'no', or an 'on' or an 'off'."

In the British study, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, 1,804 women between 23 and 83 filled in questionnaires. All were pairs of identical or non-identical twins.

If a G-spot did exist, it would be expected that both identical twins, who have the same genes, would report having one. But in cases where one twin reported having the zone, the scientists found that no pattern emerged of the other having it.

In fact, identical twins were no more likely to share a G-spot than non-identical twins, who only share half their genes.

Odile Buisson, a gynaecologist, said the study was a demonstration of a cultural difference in attitudes to sex.

"I don't want to stigmatise at all but I think the Protestant, liberal, Anglo-Saxon character means you are very pragmatic. There has to be a cause for everything, a gene for everything," she said, adding: "I think it's totalitarian." (ANI)
