Speaking of overzealous male sex researchers, Petra Boynton the latest g-spot un-debunker, Adam Ostrzenski, who says he's definitely, positively found what he's calling the "g-spot" organ while dissecting the anterior vaginal wall of one particular cadaver of an 83-year-old woman, has a pretty glaring conflict of interest.
[T]he author claims he has no conflict of interest. Which is concerning given he runs a Cosmetic Gynaecology practice this is not in itself sinister but it does have a bearing on why he may have an interest in proving the presence of a g-spot and should have been declared in both the press release and the paper. It is remiss of the journal and publisher not to ensure this was done.
Alongside the numerous cosmetic genital procedures he offers, Dr Ostrzenski trains practitioners in procedures including ‘g-spot fat augmentation’ and ‘g-spot surgical augmentation’.
This sounds very much like something that could well be considered a conflict of interest and should have been declared as such in the paper.

On the one hand, maybe you can say that a guy who tries to make a living in "g-spot fat augmentation" would have a vested interest in locating the actual g-spot in order to best, well, augment it. On the other hand, though, if the guy's got a vested interest he be a little over invested in finding something he can claim his procedure "augments." Either way, though, it's unusual for good researchers to claim no commercial interest when they plainly have one.
