ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 26 (UPI) -- A Florida gynecologist said he discovered the G-spot last fall during a post-mortem on an 83-year-old woman at a university in Poland.
Dr. Adam Ostrzenski, a semi-retired gynecologist in St. Petersburg, Fla., said he performed his research on the dead woman because dissection of human remains is permitted in Poland soon after death, when it's easier to see fine distinctions in tissue, The Miami Herald reported.
Ostrzenski, who performed reconstructive and cosmetic gynecological procedures at the the Institute of Gynecology, developed seven new techniques for vaginal rejuvenation.
He said he peeled back the six layers of the cadaver's vaginal wall and found a sac structure between the fifth and sixth layers that housed grape-like clusters of erectile tissue, which is supposed to boost women's orgasmic sensation. The dissection took 7 hours.
Ostrzenski said he was inspired by the first principles of medicine "first establish the anatomy.''
If the finding, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, is confirmed by further investigation, Ostrzenski said he hoped his work will help rewrite anatomy books.
However, Beverly Whipple, a Rutgers University nursing school professor who popularized the G-spot when she co-authored the 1982 book "The G Spot and Other Discoveries about Human Sexuality," said Ostrzenski's discovery is not the G-spot because the G-spot is not one entity.
