The Male G-spot

A slightly taboo pleasure, but an acceptable term.

As a person fascinated with words and phrases, I always find the reference to the male G-spot a little bit humorous. After all, the G-spot literally means Gräfenberg spot and refers specifically to a gynaecologist's discovery within female, not male genitalia. I'm not certain when the male g-spot became a term used to describe stimulation of the prostate, but I'm running across it more and more frequently on sexuality sites. One part of me immediately thinks, jeez, can't guys find their own term, or, like early Christians taking over and replacing pagan rituals and festivities with their own celebrations, must dominant cultures constantly turn things into their own personal and empowering definitions? From a feminist point of view, there is a sense of male ownership over female sexuality in their use of the term to describe a man's pleasure point.

There is of course the other part of me that thinks, who gives a damn, but the more I wonder about it, the more it makes sense that straight men would want to have a g-spot in order to give it a name other than simply you must be gay. In this context and considering that stimulation of the prostate must occur through accessing the small gland located a few inches inside the anus, this alternate connotation of G-spot does make strange sense, which is amusing to me, but perhaps not to straight men who enjoy putting it up the prostate.

Aside from my current general silliness, I learned about the male G-spot from some gay friends prior to University. Interestingly enough, I learned a lot about male pleasure from my gay friends, but that's another story. Still, receiving anal stimulation from your female lover is one of those things that can produce an intense orgasm, as many a boyfriend has discovered ;). Unfortunately, getting it up the ass continues to have negative connotations amongst the man's man world, where locker room discussions focus more on how he gave it to her than on how she gave him the most intense orgasm of his life.

When the G-spot actually became an almost genderless term is still a bit foggy to me, but in the world we currently live it makes a lot of sense to refer to prostate fun as the male g-spot. After all, it symbolically makes the experience more palatable, and perhaps possible amongst straight couples wishing to explore each other's ultimate pleasure points.

More on the male G-spot.
