Determined lovers have been searching for it for centuries in a bid to send their partner to the ultimate height in ecstasy. Some people have even questioned its existence.

But now scientists claim to have found the Holy Grail of sexual pleasure, the female G-spot.

According to scientists from the Institute of Gynaecology in Florida, a tiny sac found inside the corpse of an 83-year-old woman could have triggered orgasms and proves that the G-sport is real.

The study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, says that the sac which measures just half the size of a fingernail is confirmed the "anatomic existence" of the G-spot.

Writing in the journal Dr Adam Ostrzenski, of the Institute of Gynaecology, said: "It confirmed the anatomic existence of the G-spot, which may lead to a better understanding of female sexual function."

Ostrzenski insists that he " is close to putting the putting the controversy to rest completely."

The elusive G-spot was named spot is named after Ernst Grafenberg, a German gynaecologist who claimed to have discovered erogenous zone in 1950.

Even though there is some speculation over its actual presence sex therapists have since maintained that many woman need to find it and experience the full pleasure of sex.

However, despite Ostrzensk's team certainty British experts have questioned whether what was found was actually the G-spot.

Dr Petra Boynton, a lecturer in health services research at University College London says that the new research is simply another series of limited studies into whether the G-spot exists.

She told the Telegraph: "We persistently try and make out there are unique parts of the female genitals that should or should not be stimulated to encourage orgasm.

"It has rehearsed misleading stereotypes about women and we seem obsessed with proving or disproving that orgasms 'happen' in the G-spot - or not."
