Sexual intercourse is nature's way of satisfying our innate desire to reproduce so we can pass on our genes. After all, what can be more magnificent than the end result - a baby? It is also intuitively understood that men cannot impregnate without an orgasm; without an orgasm, there is no ejaculation without ejaculation, there is no sperm without sperm, there is no conception.
Erogenous zones are areas of the body that can elicit sexual arousal when stimulated. It is said that the two most important organs in achieving an orgasm are the brain and clitoris. This means that in order for an orgasm to be achieved, the woman must be in the right state of mind and experience stimulation of the clitoris, which is the female sex organ analogous to the male penis. However, some scientists have argued that the clitoris, located outside the vagina, is not the only sexual area which elicits an orgasm; they have claimed that 'erotic zones' are found inside the woman's vagina as well.
One such area is called the Grafenberg Spot or G-spot, named after a German gynecologist, who claimed that the inside of the vagina has an 'erotic zone' which can elicit an orgasm without the need for clitoral stimulation. The G-spot is believed to be a thicker area of tissue located 1-3 inches inside the front side of the vaginal wall. Not all women have a G-spot and some in the medical community are skeptical of its existence, thus remaining a highly contested debate.
The urethra, in the male, delivers urine and sperm; in the female it is believed to only deliver urine. However, during a powerful orgasm, some women may experience what is known as 'female ejaculation' by emitting a fluid from their urethral openings that is not urine, indicating that this spot may be an erogenous zone. The fluid produced is similar to male seminal fluid and differs from vaginal lubrication fluid.
