I've heard some people place importance on certain 'sensitive' spots in the vagina. I guess these would just be possible erogenous zones, which are different from everyone - like feet and necks.

However, has anyone heard anything about these vaginal spots? Or is this yet another of history's attempts to sap all the importance away from clitori (Is that the accurate plural?) and make the vagina the main thing again? (Hello, Freud *sigh*...)

Those terms are unfamiliar to me, and not terms I have heard used by folks in my field.

Fill me in on where you've been hearing/seeing them?

U-spot I've heard used by my friend Adam as an errogenous zone, but upon inspecting wikipedia (not a good source I know), U-spot is listed as another word of female prostate/sklene's glands so I guess that one definately exists.

The A-spot is another thing Adam keeps saying is real, when I looked on wikipedia again, it is something called the 'Anterior Fonix Erogenous Zone' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Spot) but when I read that article it just looks like rubbish. I guess if a number of people felt anything in a specific place in the vagina it would be caused by the internal clitoris. People just seem to want it to be complicated!

So, I think the answer here is that this is about your pal Adam. [Razz]

Really, this whole idea of whateverletter-spot in people bodies is a problem no matter how you slice, it, even for the g-spot, which is pretty much the only whatever-spot people who work in sex actually tend to use. It's problematic no matter what because it carries the strong implication that any part of the body can exist and be sensorially experienced in a vacuum when we know that's just never, ever true.
