Gosh. I'd never heard that stereotype before. I suppose I'll have to blame family guy. I'm sure there are plenty of UK snopesters who would testify that it's not really an accurate portrayal

The joke stereotype is much older than Family Guy and it's not American in origin. For example, here's the Wikipedia page on the play No Sex Please, We're British (1971):
Quote:
No Sex Please, We're British is a British comedic play written by Alistair Foot and Anthony Marriott and first staged in London's West End in 1971. It was unanimously panned by critics, but still ran for nearly a decade to packed audiences. It did not share the same success with American audiences, running for only 16 performances on Broadway in early 1973.
Two years later it was adapted into a movie starring Ronnie Corbett. And here's an article from the site getsurrey.co.uk dated 13 November 2009:
Quote:
ASHTEAD Players are returning to farce for their next production, No Sex Please – We’re British, by Anthony Marriott and Alistair Foot, at Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall from Wednesday to Saturday, November 18 to 21.
{ snip }
This play still holds the record as one of the longest running West End comedy productions. It enjoyed a decade in the West End and is still revived by both professional and amateur companies throughout the UK.
Looking at your location I'm surprised you haven't heard of the play or movie or both.
Brian

I would definitely say I have a spot that leads to v orgasms, but its not the spongy spot that is supposed to be the G-spot. That spot really does nothing, but further up and to the left, there is a spot that is basically a bundle of nerves or something. Don't know what its called. but it works for me.

I think he's playing to stereotypes. Ask the French about sex, ask the British about teas, that sort of thing.

It's rumoured that the British idea of kinky sex is "leaving the bedroom light on". Then again, spanking (in a BDSM sense) also seems to be linked to the English (as opposed to British). So we have some rather confused stereotypes regarding sex, at least in parts of these isles!

If you're doing it right, does it matter?

I would say, umm, that it exists, and that just touching it doesn't feel like anything but that spongy whatever that others have described, but when hit just right, um, well, I maintain that it exists.
