Females ejaculate when the urethra produces fluid during the time of sexual intercourse. The reason for this discharge is not necessarily orgasm, but when a female gets sexually aroused. Though doctors have not yet found out the exact reason for this to take place, this is considered to be perfectly normal. In this article, we will be learning about female ejaculation and some related FAQs.
What is female ejaculation?
When the female’s urethra expels fluid due to orgasm or sexual arousal, it is known as female ejaculation. The urethra is the part of the reproductive system that carries urine from the bladder to the outside.
There are two types of female ejaculation
- Ejaculate fluid
This fluid is similar to that of male semen. It appears to be milky and has a thick consistency.
- Squirting fluid
This fluid is colorless as well as odorless. It is produced in a large quantity.
When the liquid was analyzed it showed the presence of prostatic acid phosphatase (PSA). PSA is such an enzyme whose presence in the male semen increases the motility of the sperms.
Moreover, there is also fructose present in the female ejaculation. It is a form of sugar that is also present in male semen and acts as a source of energy for the sperms.
experts believe that the presence of fructose in the fluid is generated due to the skene’s gland. This gland is also referred to as the female prostate which makes it a correspondent of the male reproductive system.
Skene’s gland is present in the inner front part of the vagina near the G-spot. When stimulation takes place, these glands produce fructose as well as PSA, which then makes its way towards the urethra.
Is it real?
For many years, experts thought that women who ejaculated while having sex suffered from some continence problem. Later, this problem was disapproved and the existence of female ejaculation was confirmed.
In a study conducted in 2014, it was found that the fluid gets accumulated in the bladder during intercourse and expelled out of the urethra which is known as female ejaculation.
Can all women squirt?
Squirting is normal in both males and females. About 10 to 50 presents of females ejaculate while having sex. It is even believed that every female ejaculates during intercourse but often goes by un-noticeable.
It might also happen that the fluid goes back into the bladder instead of coming out.
Another interesting point is that when experts analyzed urine from before and after having an orgasm. The latter was found to have PSA in it. Thus, proving the fact the female does ejaculate and sometimes fails to expel the liquid.
The amount, feeling, and triggers of ejaculation vary from person to person.
Health benefits of female ejaculation
Everything that happens in the human body either has a benefit or a side-effect. In the case of female ejaculation, the benefit is unknown. Well, having sex itself gives a lot of benefits to the body.
To begin with, while someone is getting an orgasm, their body releases pain-relieving hormones. This in turn helps with leg and back pain, headaches, and menstrual cramps.
Just after the climax phase, the body releases these hormones thus, giving one a restful sleep. The pain-relieving hormones include oxytocin and prolactin.
Now having sexual intercourse has other benefits too, such as:
- Lowering blood pressure
- Relieving stress
- Boosting the immune system
- Protecting the heart health
Relationship of female ejaculation with the menstrual cycle
Well, the relation between these two broad topics is not yet clear. Some say that the intensity of ejaculation increases after menstruating or ovulating. Whereas some believe that there is no connection only.
Relationship of female ejaculation with pregnancy
Doctors believe that there is a link between these two. The link is established when the fluid having PSA and fructose, supports the journey of the semen towards the unfertilized eggs.
While more research is required to prove this completely true. Some also say that the ejaculation liquid has urine in it, which has the power of killing the sperms.
Below are given the solution to some frequent questions asked by women:
- What is squirting and is it similar to ejaculation?
Sometimes people use these two terms interchangeably, but studies show that squirting is not the same as evacuation.
While squirting the liquid is somewhat like a gushing fluid. The consistency of the fluid is somewhat like watered-down urine which might contain some amount of ejaculation liquid.
Whereas a thicker and milky fluid is known as proper ejaculation fluid.
- Ejaculation is the same as urine?
No, ejaculation is not the same as urine. The liquid that is produced during ejaculation is mostly prostate enzyme and with a bit of urea. Now, urea is only a small part of the urine.
- Does it have a taste?
According to a recent study, the taste of the liquid is somewhat sweet. In ancient India, it was named the “nectar of the gods”.
- What smell does it give?
Well, you might think that coming out the same way as urine, it would also smell like pee. The smell is nothing like urine. Some experts say that ejaculation is odorless.
- Ejaculation can be done on purpose?
No, one cannot ejaculate on command. It is about the feeling that one gets, such as orgasm, that expels the liquid out. So, you need to arouse yourself sexually to ejaculate.
The bottom line
You might think there is some connection between the G-spot and ejaculation. After all, G-spot is THE spot one wants to get hold of. G-spot is located inside the vagina and is a nod of the clitoris network.
This means any intense activity on the clitoris will ultimately arouse the G-spot and vice-versa. Finding the G-spot and giving orgasm to it will result in the production of liquid. That can be either squirt or ejaculation.
This forms one of the main things that give rise to quite an amount of liquid. Thus, remarking successful sexual intercourse.
