The Key to Female Ejaculation
Approximately 60% of women questioned worldwide over the past century report some sort of release of fluids at climax. Some women report just a little fluid as opposed to a “gush” or “squirt”, but the volume of ejaculate can range considerably. Yet female ejaculation is like Bigfoot or UFOs…there’s much debate over whether or not it is a “real thing”. So what do experts think? Is it just…pee? The expulsion of urine at climax? Or is it something else entirely?
Known colloquially as “squirting” or “gushing”, female ejaculation is the expulsion of fluid at climax via the paraurethral glands, or Skene’s glands, in woman.
Written history regarding female ejaculation dates back as far as the 16th century: Dutch physician Laevinius Lemnius, described an act of “(Woman) drawing forth the man’s seed and casting her own with it.” Even Shakespeare made reference to this phenomenon (“The waters of my love! Allow your waters to flow!”). Yet the first actual documentation of female ejaculation was by Regnier de Graaf, a 17th century anatomist, who speculated that these fluids are derived from a number of sources, including the vagina, urinary tract, cervix and uterus. On the other hand, De Graaf did not distinguish this ejaculatory fluid from natural lubrication brought on through arousal.
There’s further debate on whether or not the G-spot plays a key part in female ejaculation. German gynecologist Ernest Gräfenberg was the first to theorize the location of this erogenous zone. He described it as analogous to the male prostate, which surrounds the male urethra; conversely, the female urethra also seems to be surrounded by erectile tissues. In the course of sexual stimulation of this area, the female urethra seems to enlarge and can be easily felt. This may be biologically homologous to the male prostate, which perhaps not so coincidentally is responsible for male ejaculation. It is also hypothesized that the G-spot is an extension of the clitoris, which is also comprised of erectile tissue, and that this is the cause of vaginal orgasm in those who experience climax via penetration.
So if squirting is the real deal, what the heck could be its function? A 2009 paper in Medical Hypotheses suggested that female ejaculate may have an anti-microbial function, protecting from urinary tract infections (UTI’s). Others believe it could serve any other number of biological functions, such as a chemical or hormonal signal to alert other women to either meet or avoid a particularly attentive lover; others speculate that it is a rush of extra lubrication during moments of extreme arousal…right when you’d need it the most!
Critics hold firm to the belief that female ejaculation is either incontinence or simply excessive, natural vaginal lubrication. Research on the contrary has concentrated almost exclusively on attempts to prove that the ejaculate is not actually urine. Upon testing, researchers have found this fluid contains certain levels of glucose and fructose (sugars), prostate specific antigens (PSA), and prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP), an enzyme which is also found in male ejaculate. Also present are urea and creatinine, commonly found in urine, which are found in trace amounts that vary from case to case…some researchers even believe these scant amounts of urea or creatinine are only present due to cross contamination, or in other words, are present on the labia during collection.
Another characteristic of this so-called ejaculation is that many have found the fluid present to be much thicker, heavier and sweeter tasting and smelling than urine or natural lubrication, indicating that this fluid must be something else entirely. It has been described as sometimes being as thick and opaque as it’s male equivalent.
A study done in 2014 involving seven women who reported the experience of frequent “female ejaculation” was done in an attempt to dismiss this act as actual ejaculation…using ultrasounds, the study did conclusively confirm thorough bladder emptiness before stimulation, noticeable bladder filling
before squirting and demonstrated that the bladder had again been emptied aftersquirting. Coincidence…or no?
Even so, there are hundreds of thousands of people in the world who believe without a doubt that female ejaculation is separate entity all its own, and that it is not only possible, but easy, to achieve with proper G-spot stimulation.
Certain sex positions, like doggy-style, reverse cowgirl or sex while spooning, can help make targeting the G-spot a bit easier. Liberator furniture are gorgeous and affordable little sex position ramps that can really help make certain positions easy to achieve. You can also try stimulating gels or creams, such as Doc Johnson’s Spot On, that help engorge and sensitize the sweet spot for easier stimulation.
