Q: What is a G-spot shot?

A: G-spot amplification, aka the G-shot, is an injection that is targeted at the area in the vaginal canal where the G-spot is located. The injection delivers a dose of a filler containing hyaluronic acid, while others contain collagen.

The procedure ranges from R5,000 upward, results vary, last a few months and require to be repeated.

The scepticism around these procedures are mainly due to the reinforcement of the "ideal" vagina and that normal physiological changes lead to anxiety and a quick fix to attain pleasure and not always for the benefit of women.

As one ages or as a result of genital dermatological conditions that result in vaginal dryness, the natural lubrication may be negatively affected and therefore the G-spot shot enhances sexual pleasure. The filler creates fullness in the area, making arousal and stimulation easier.

Incorporating foreplay, use of a lubricant can result in more intense and regular orgasms.

Pain during penetration can be a turnoff and can lead to a significant decrease in libido.

Chronic medication such as the hormonal contraceptive pill and antidepressants may impact sexual pleasure by causing dryness. Menopause and decreased estrogen levels mean many older women may be dissatisfied with their sex life.

The G-shot, when done under aseptic techniques by trained health-care professionals has improved quality of life and self-esteem but it is worthwhile to manage underlying medical or psychological problems or causes first.

Always discuss options such as hormone replacement therapy, sex therapy, sex toys, lubricants, couple counselling and approach sexual pleasure holistically before genital modifications.
