A NSFW Part Of The Body Was Almost Called 'The Whipple Tickle' And We Can't Stop Giggling

The existence of what we now commonly call the "G-Spot," a place at the front of the vagina that, when stimulated, can cause an intense orgasm, was first suggested in an academic setting by Dr. Ernst Grafenberg. He wasn't the one who suggested the term "G-Spot," though.


Professor Beverly Whipple was working with Dr. John Perry on research to prove the existence of this elusive spot in the 1970s when someone suggested they name it after Whipple.

Dr. Whipple told the BBC:

"Someone said: 'Why not call it the Whipple Tickle?'"
"But I said: 'No, we are going to name it after Dr Grafenberg.' Then we included it in scientific papers before the book came out."

With the existence of the g-spot being called into question (again) because of new research, there is a possibility that this may all just become part of history. However, it's still a little disappointing to know that we missed out on "The Whipple Tickle."
