This week: squirting. There's a lot of conflicting information out there about female ejaculation, or more colloquially, squirting. It is perhaps the greatest mystery of our time.
For a start, is it really gism shooting out of your vagina, or are you just peeing all over the place? Does it feel nice? And OMG can women get themselves pregnant with their own lady-semen and will this eliminate the male race!?
By Nicola Jones. Drugs such as Viagra should work for some women — especially if they have a big G spot. This spot, famed for producing spectacular orgasms, turns out to be awash with the enzymes that these drugs act on.
A dozen women, my then-partner among them, shooting arcs of liquid into the air from their genitals for the very first time, in unison. What had begun 90 minutes earlier as a fairly granular anatomy lesson in a Brooklyn townhouse had seamlessly morphed into something resembling the fountain show at the Bellagio. Up until this moment, I harbored serious doubts that the well-muscled man wearing colorful briefs and the hairstyle of a Lenape warrior could guide this diverse group of women and their partners to opening the floodgates for the first time, much less at the same time. Indeed, I showed up feeling fairly certain that there were people who could squirt and people who could not squirt and that it broke down in a ratio similar to those who are right- and left-handed.
Female ejaculation is characterized as an expulsion of fluid from or near the vagina during or before an orgasm. It is also known colloquially as squirting or gushing although these are considered to be different phenomena in some research publications. There have been few studies on female ejaculation.
Where does it comes from? Is it pee? And how might I make it happen for me?
My quest begins with a set of glands—located on the anterior wall of the vagina near the urethra and G-spot—called the Skene's Glands. If you're unfamiliar, the Skene's, my friends, are the mystical entities that are considered the epicenter of female ejaculation. I had always thought that squirting could only be attributed to fakeouts in porn and the occasional unicorn girlbut apparently everyone has these glands.
Squirting, or female ejaculation, is one of the most hotly debated topics in the world of sex education. Squirting does not refer to the fluids that lubricate the vaginabut rather to the emission of a thin, watery liquid out of the urethra the same hole urine comes out of. Not all women will be able to learn how to ejaculate.
Their origins, quantity, compositions, and expulsion mechanisms depend on anatomical and pathophysiological dispositions and the degree of sexual arousal. These are natural sexual responses but may also represent symptoms of urinary incontinence. AIM: The study aims to clarify the etiology of fluid leakage at orgasm, distinguish between associated physiological sexual responses, and differentiate these phenomena from symptoms of illness.
