The vaginal discoveries of Adam Ostrzenski, M.D., Ph.D.

[UPDATE, April 19, 2012, 1:12 pm: The original version of this post, done this morning, centered on a news report that, I just learned, was based on a still-embargoed press release. The reporter who wrote that piece telephoned me and explained that she had —mistakenly —  published her report too early. She said she has removed her report from the web, and asked that I remove or modify my blog item about it. What remains here, below, is my item from this morning, with the (I now know) embargoed bits removed. The embargoed news is about a new discovery by (as the press release identifies him) “Adam Ostrzenski, M.D., Ph.D., of the Institute of Gynecology in St. Petersburg, FL”.]

[Excised text was here.]

This is Dr. Ostrzenski‘s second great claimed exploratory discovery in vaginas. [Dr. Ostrzenski is pictured here, with a link to the Cosmetic Gynecology web site.] He described his first discovery — the wide/smooth vagina — in a pair of reports:

An acquired sensation of wide/smooth vagina: a new classification,” A. Ostrzenski, Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol. 2011 Sep;158.

and

Vaginal rugation rejuvenation (restoration): a new surgical technique for an acquired sensation of wide/smoothvagina,” A. Ostrzenski, Gynecol Obstet Invest. 2012;73(1):48-52.

BONUS:  A 1995 article titled “Adam Ostrzenski: Breaking Barriers in More Ways than One” in the Journal of the National Medical Association, says: “Ostrzenski was honored at a ceremony on March 14 as the Physician of the Year by the Physician Advisory Board of the U.S. Congress”

BONUS: A United States Court of Appeals (4th district) ruling about Dr. Ostrazenski

BONUS: “G-spot proves hard to find

BONUS: “Gee! Journal seeks spot of publicity

UPDATE (April 25, 2012): With the embargo lifted, Ricki Lewis writes about the study, and interviews Dr. O., in a guest blog for Scientific American called “A Tale of Two G-Spots“. Petra Boynton writes about the press release and some of the history of this kind of claim, titling her essay “G-spot discovery, medicalization and media hype“. Tina Hesman Saey, in Science News, writes about it, with the headline “Pinpointing the G-spot, or not“. CBS-News HealthPop interviewed Dr. O, then reported (thanks to Petra Boynton for bringing this to our attention — especially the part we present here in bold type):

Ostrzenski defended his work in an interview with HealthPop, saying he only looked for the presence of an anatomical structure and his study was not designed to assess function because that would have required him to electrically stimulate a deceased subject.

Meanwhile, lots of other sources write lots of other things.

    dear sir. my boyfriend is and has been a gigolo. he has no problem arousing the spot on multiple women and that is the key, it has to be pleasured into existence, then it comes down and presses its self against the inserted object. The women has to be hot and bothered and then you will see it, also after the first time it is brought it comes out easier and easier
