Female Ejaculation, Is It Real?

Wednesday, January 20, 2016 1:00 PM

You wouldn't think that there would still be many mysteries surrounding the female body, but the phenomenon of female ejaculation still has some sex researchers stumped. What it is and why it happens is hotly debated. Some call it "female ejaculation" or "fluid expulsions" while others call it "squirting," and others have set out to prove that these are two completely different phenomena. We've set out to answer some of the common questions about this mystery.


Is it Pee?
A 2011 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine concluded that female ejaculation and squirting are two different phenomena. "The real female ejaculation is the release of a very scanty, thick, and whitish fluid from the female prostate, while the squirting is the expulsion of a diluted fluid from the urinary bladder." Meaning female ejaculatory fluid is not urine

Wait. Women have a Prostate?
According research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the prostate is believed to be present in at least 50% of women, and that stimulating it may induce female ejaculation.

How Typical Is It?
This phenomenon has been documented as far back as the ancient Romans who reported that "women produce a thin fluid that flows when they experience the greatest pleasure."

While it's not uncommon, it doesn't occur quite as much as porn would have you believe. According to Michael Castleman, author of All About Sex, "somewhere between 10-50% of women experience female ejaculation at orgasm."


If you're a woman who has personal experience with this, there is no reason to be embarrassed by it, or to try to stop it. Embrace it as a natural part of your female anatomy. And if you're concerned about a mess you can place a towel underneath you during intercourse.
