Is your G-spot big enough?

// 16 May 2007

syringeA California doctor is offering to inject collagen into your G-spot to increase sexual pleasure, for only $1,800 a pop. That’s £600.

Reports NBC:

According to, the G-SHOT is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily augment the Grafenburg spot in sexually active women with normal sexual function.

Melissa Sherrill said she decided to get the G-Shot to increase her sexual pleasure.

“It didn’t hurt at all,” Sherrill said.

Hmmm. Well, in the scheme of things, it doesn’t sound too bad. After all, it’s about increasing a woman’s sexual pleasure, not aspiring to the vagina of a porn star, as much of this type of plastic surgery seems to be. But… well… it only last four mouths. I also worry about the safety of it – NBC says this doctor is one of the only ones to offer the treatment, and has only been doing it for a few weeks. How has it been tested? What are the risks? “The site lists 68 risks that are associated with the procedure, ranging from bleeding to nodule formation.” Right. Somewhat offputting, no? Added to that, the sex therapist interviewed by NBC does not approve:

Psychologist and sex therapist Dr. Bryna Barsky-Ex of Kaiser Permanente Santa Teresa does not recommend the G-Shot.

“I think getting addicted to the $1,800 every four months just to be able to function sexually is problematic. There are a lot of ways to get pleasure. Women really don’t need a shot to be able to do it,” Barsky-Ex said.

On the other hand, I suppose it is good that someone is working on problems with the female sex drive, rather than just randomly testing to see if women respond to viagra?
