G MARKS THE SPOT: GOOD VIBRATIONS PROCLAIMS FEBRUARY AS NATIONAL G-SPOT MONTH
Sex Toy Company Says “It Most Certainly Does Exist!”
San Francisco, CA -- (February 3, 2010): Good Vibrations, (goodvibes.com), the legendary San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing accurate information on sexuality and toys for grown-ups, is proud to announce that February is official National G-spot Month.
There has been a lot of talk in the media lately about whether this part of the anatomy really exists. CNN recently published an article about research done at Kings College, London on a large group of female twins that claimed the G-spot is a myth, since not all the women believed they had such a thing -- even though the study itself was phrased in a way that showed the researchers didn't know how to correctly describe the thing they were trying to discover. Joy Behar dedicated an entire show to the topic, and sex experts across the globe have raised their voices on the subject all over the Internet.
So, just as they did a decade and a half ago when masturbation was being misrepresented in the news,* Good Vibrations has decided it is necessary to put the speculation, uncertainty and inadequate science to rest and announce that yes, Virginia, there is indeed a G-spot. They are dedicating their educational resources for the entire month of February to help dispel the mystery.
Dr. Carol Queen, Ph. D, widely published sexuality and sexual health author and staff sexologist at Good Vibrations, who for almost 20 years has offered her personal and professional experience to explain the anatomy, history and function of the G-spot, said, “While every woman probably has one, surprisingly few women or their partners know where the G-spot is, let alone how best to stimulate it,” says Queen. “Without an understanding of how it functions, the G-spot does indeed seem to be missing from many women's anatomy -- but the problem is with our sex information, not our bodies, and if you have the right map it's much easier to find!"
Dr. Queen, who also writes for the City Brights bloggers section of the San Francisco Chronicle's website, sfgate.com, devoted her most recent column to debunking the problematic research on the topic.
For the entire month of February, goodvibes.com will feature the following crucial information for G-spot explorers:
- Clear, concise explanations of the anatomy and physiology of the G-spot from the Good Vibrations’ sexologists, Dr Carol Queen and Charlie Glickman, Ph.D
- Diagrams showing the *exact location* of the G-spot
- Insightful tales of the G-spot’s cultural history
- Information about female ejaculation and Kegel exercises
- Techniques and variations for G-spot play and female ejaculation
- A special G-spot gift guide featuring all the Good Vibrations toys, books and videos dedicated to the G-spot
To further celebrate their commitment to helping men and women all over America find the special spot, Good Vibrations is offering their exclusive new G-Swirl and G-Twist vibes at a discounted $69.00 (normally $82.00) for the entire month of February. The G-Swirl and G-Twist are from the newly launched Good Vibrations-designed and manufactured product line.
Good Vibrations also invites people to come to the stores and register to win a deluxe G-spot basket worth over $250 (toys, books, video, lubes), all dedicated to the G-spot.
In addition, Good Vibrations will host an Ask the Doctors session on the G-spot at their Berkeley store on Feb. 7. Visit goodvibes.com for more details. Staff sexologist Dr. Carol Queen, Ph.D has also recently completed an informational film script about the G-spot; that how-to movie, entitled Gush: The Official Guide to the G-spot and Female Ejaculation, will be out this spring.
*National Masturbation Month was created by Good Vibrations in 1994 to raise awareness after President Bill Clinton fired then-Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders for saying masturbation was "perhaps something that should be taught" about to youth in the context of their sex education. It has been celebrated for 15 years as a way of correcting society's pernicious anti-solo-sex bias.
