Hill Dr. Beverly Whipple may be a name uncommon to most women across America but one mention of the word “g spot” and women go crazy. This favored word can all be thanks to Beverly Whipple. As one of the most popular female sexuality researchers around, Dr. Beverly Whipple did not just stop at the g spot. She has done a lot more for sex education than most are aware. Beverly Whipple obtained her Bachelor’s Degree at the small Wagner College located in Staten Island, New York City (Rutgers College of Nursing).
