The 'V-Spot' is a term created to describe the most sensitive area of emotional vulnerability that becomes aroused when one partner hits an emotional raw spot in the other. The V Spot is designed to parallel the G-Spot, as the emotional counterpart that can be triggered by a seemingly unimportant event. The V-Spot is comprised of highly charged emotional sensitivities that emanate from raw experiences during infancy and childhood. Getting in contact with the V-Spot is the only way to break away from emotional abuse and begin the healing process. Through Lachkar's book, clinicians and therapists will become acquainted with the V-Spot and recognize the importance of this volatile area of emotional vulnerability.
