Nowadays, most people know that women can also ejaculate just like men. In women, the ejaculation comes under the form of fluid squirting out at the high of orgasm. However, the great debate is what exactly is that fluid? Is it urine or lubrication from the vaginal wall? Is it another type of lubrication from the urethral gland?
Two forms of fluid
To find the answer to this question, Beverly Whipple, a neurophysiologist from Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey, conducted a study on female ejaculation. Her study found that on the contrary, female ejaculation should only be used to refer to the milk white liquid at orgasm, not the clear fluid that gushes out during orgasm. She further stated that the clear liquid is urine diluted with substances from the female prostate, expelled from the female urethra.
This conclusion came when the research team took sample of the fluid collected from female orgasm and ran them under the microscope. They found two types of fluid, one has a similar chemical structure to urine, while the other contain a small amount of prostate-specific antigen.
However, this study is still unable to answer if female ejaculation serves any adaptive function to human.
Every woman is capable of ejaculating
Surprisingly, female ejaculation is not rare. A study showed that somewhere between 10-54% of women report fluid expulsion during arousal or orgasm. In fact, said that every woman can ejaculate if their partner “knows what they are doing.”
This, of course, brings us to the “mythical” G-spot. Why is the G-spot such an elusive part to men? Much of this comes from the misunderstanding of what it is and what it can do. The G-spot is definitely not a specific spot that will make girl orgasms with the slightest touch. It is an area on the front of the vaginal wall that is much more sensitive compared to the other areas. Researcher Emmanuele Jannini and his colleagues believe that this area includes part of the front vaginal wall, the urethra, the female prostate gland, surrounding muscles and tissue, and perhaps even parts of the clitoris. In their work, they called this area the clitourethrovaginal complex (a mix of the clitoris, urethra, and the vagina).
Not every woman have the G-spot. Some women, especially those who suffer from vagina diseases and find sexual activities painful or not as pleasurable might not get much from G-spot stimulation. Common conditions that affect one’s sex life are:
- Vaginismus (tightness of the vaginal muscles).
- Vulvodynia (chronic vulvar pain without cause).
- Vulvar vestibulitis (severe pain during attempted vaginal entry, whether it be intercourse or tampons).
- Interstitial cystitis (painful bladder sometimes caused by pelvic floor dysfunction).
- Endometriosis (when endometrial tissue is found outside the uterus on other parts of the body).
- Pelvic floor dysfunction (not being able to control your pelvic floor muscles).
If you or your partner falls into this case, don’t be discourage. If you still want to try G-spot stimulation, consider it a suggestion rather than a must. There are many other feel-good spots on the body to explore.
