(redirected from Grafenberg spot) Also found in: Dictionary.
An area of tissue surrounding the female urethra and running along the roof of the vagina, postulated to be erectile and to enhance sexual arousal.
A 2–3 cm elevated zone of erotically sensitive neuroglandular tissue located inside the anterior vagina near the urethra, which has a high concentration of sensory nerves. It is linked to increased vaginal secretion similar to the male's prostate gland
The G-spot, or Grafenberg spot, was first described by German gynaecologist Ernst Grafenberg, who called it "a zone of erogenous feeling" and located it somewhere along the "suburethral surface of the anterior vaginal wall", surprising lots of people who'd been past that way loads of times and never noticed anything.
