Researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago say they have found a critical way a man can transmit the HIV virus to a woman.

Scientists say they may be able to prove the existence of the female G spot. Researchers told New Scientist magazine that women who reported having orgasms often had an area of thicker tissue beyond the "front" wall of the vagina, but they were cautious about claiming that the new finding pointed to absolute proof. Dr Emmanuele Jannini and her colleagues at the University of L'Aquila conducted the study which consisted of 20 women in Italy. By using ultrasound technology to gain measurements,...
