The G Shot

I’ve been asked by the Fox News Channel to discuss The G Shot on America’s Newsroom tomorrow at 9:30 am. The G Shot is a procedure originated by well-known Beverly Hills gynecologist Dr. David Matlock, which entails injecting collagen into the G-spot to increase its thickness and size. The belief is that this can enhance sexual arousal and graftification. According to Dr. Matlock’s in-office study, 87% of women reported successful results. The procedure takes about 8 seconds (the time for the injection) and lasts about 4 months.

Now, I’ve never performed this procedure, and as a surgeon tend to stay away from this area of the body. I do have some colleagues in Beverly Hills who know Dr. Matlock very well and have only kind words about him as a person, surgeon, and his practice. While the information on this procedure is scant in our scientific literature, this would be expected with such a new procedure. It is an off-label use of the product, and therefore not FDA approved yet. From what I can tell though, the risks are minimal, and it is definitely possible it works.

But I am still going to avoid putting needles into that area…

For more information on the G Shot, check out this article from the San Francisco Chronicle or click here for Dr. Matlock’s website.

Thanks for reading.

  2. Doing this procedure outside internal review board (IRB)-directed protacol is human experimentation pure and simple.

  3. I’m curious to know what does the ACOG says about this?

    I can’t see how this could possibly do anything other than stimulating a placebo effect. Wouldn’t it have to involve the nerve endings in some way to be in any way effective?

    IMHO, it’s these kinds of “experiments that give clinical trials a bad name.

  4. A skilled lover can create the same effect without using a needle. Mine did and it was spectacular. Why not train men to be better in bed rather than resorting to medical intervention.

    As for the need to increase the size of the G spot. it’s just like the clitoris. Properly stimulated, this is one place where size doesn’t matter.
