A Florida plastic surgeon's claim he found proof the G-spot exists -- inside the cadaver of an elderly woman -- is raising some eyebrows in sexual health circles.

The G-spot is supposedly located in the upper, anterior part of the vagina and becomes engorged when a woman becomes excited sexually.

There are countless studies providing evidence for and against its existence and it has never been anatomically determined.

That is, until now, according to Dr. Adam Ostrzenski of the Institute of Gynecology in St. Petersburg, Fla. During a dissection on the cadaver of an 83-year-old woman, he said he discovered a sac structure in the vagina.

Having three distinct regions, the G-spot emerged with dimensions of a length of 8.1 mm, width of 3.6 mm to 1.5 mm, and a height of 0.4 mm. After removing the entire sac, Ostrzenski found the so-called G-spot stretched from 8.1 mm to 33 mm.

"This study confirmed the anatomic existence of the G-spot, which may lead to a better understanding and improvement of female sexual function," Ostrzenski concluded in his study, published Wednesday in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

But critics have been quick to note that Ostrzenski has a vested interest in proving the elusive pleasure spot exists.

According to his Ostrzenski's website, he runs a gynecological surgery clinic where he offers G-spot surgical augmentation and fat augmentation, designed to increase sexual pleasure.

Court documents obtained by science watchdog site Improbable Research show that in 1991, Holy Cross Hospital in Maryland decided to restrict the privileges of Ostrzenski over allegations he failed "to meet appropriate standards as determined by appropriate peer review for the delivery of quality medical and surgical care."

That dismissal prompted a lengthy peer review of his work, after which the hospital board issued charges against him.

The specifics of the charges are not known, but in response to them, Ostrzenski launched a lawsuit against the doctor who led the review, Dr. Mark S. Seigel.

That case was dismissed by United States District Court in Maryland on the grounds that Seigel had "quasi-judicial immunity from liability."

This latest G-spot discovery, meanwhile, is drawing a mixed response in the scientific community. Dr. Andrew Goldstein, director of the Centers for Vulvovaginal Disorders in Annapolis, Md., told the L.A. Times this proves its existence once and for all.

But Beverly Whipple, a Rutgers University sexologist, said finding a bundle of tissues proves nothing. She and her colleagues are already drafting a response to the study, which they hope to publish in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
