31 July is National Orgasm Day. A new survey has found that 75% of women claim to have a G-spot, though 15% have located it other than in the vagina

There has never been a detailed survey asking women what type of orgasms they experience.

While many women experience, and can easily distinguish between, clitoral and vaginal (or G-spot) orgasms, there are still many women, commentators and doctors who deny the very existence of the G-spot and a distinct vaginal orgasm.

In 1966 Masters and Johnson used direct observation of 382 women and dispelled the existence of a distinct vaginal orgasm.

Studies over 50 years have estimated that between 50% and 90% of women have never experienced a vaginal orgasm.

Early in 2008 Prof Emmanuelle Jannini reported that women had to have detectable signs of a G-spot (using ultrasound) to be able to achieve a vaginal orgasm.

It has been known for nearly 60 years, but rarely publicised, that the condition of the pelvic floor muscle is a key indicator in the ability to achieve vaginal orgasm. Arnold Kegel, of the eponymous exercise routine, published a 3000 patient study in 1952 that highlighting this link and demonstrated that ‘sexually dysfunctional’ women taught a resistive exercise programme could achieve orgasm for the first time.

Demonstrating and publicising the link between a healthy and strong pelvic floor and better sex will improve the general health and sexual wellbeing of millions of women, restore millions of relationships, and reduce the incidence of stress incontinence which afflicts half of all women.
