WTF, you’re thinking, right? Yea, me too. Apparently, a new invention has come to the rescue for ladies who need an “umph” in their orgasm.
A gynecologist by the name of David Matlock began this treatment on his female patients in 2002. How does it work, you ask? Well, the G-Shot is an injection given in your doctor’s office under local anesthesia (takes about 10 minutes). A specially designed speculum is used to assist in the delivery a specified amount of high molecular weight hyaluronan directly into the g-spot area. This results in the g-spot enlarging to about the size of a quarter in width and 1/4″ in height. This enlargement, many patients claim, assists in enhancing their orgasm experience (although many patients claim it does little).
The shot comes at a hefty price ($1,300) and lasts for a couple months at which time women must return for additional shots if they wish to continue to have great orgasms. The clinical director at the Medical Center for Female Sexuality in NYC, BatSheva Marcus, offered some helpful words of wisdom for women who are considering this treatment: “For some women, G-spot stimulation feels great, for others, not so much… For women who don’t normally get pleasure from that area, they won’t feel much of an effect…I’d be nervous about it creating a problem… You’re injecting a foreign substance into the vagina.” Marcus doesn’t discount the procedure for everyone but warns against setting oneself up against unrealistic expectations: “It’s like a toy; it could make sex a little more fun for some.”
Also, in case you’re not sure where the g-spot is (there are many out there who don’t), here’s a picture. There are even many people in the public and medical arena who aren’t sold on the idea of the g-spot and not sure it actually exists as a true, anatomical structure. So don’t feel bad if you don’t know where/what it is!
