Sex educator Deborah Sundahl recently said, “Men don’t own ejaculation, it’s just been taken from women.” For guys, climax is usually linked to ejaculation. And these explosive orgasms are often understood to be unique to the male sexual experience.
Every woman is capable of experiencing ejaculation. Better yet, every woman is able to learn how to ejaculate; there are just a few steps we need to experiment with first. The G-spot, or the female prostate, can be found through the roof of the vagina. The ejaculate, however, is expelled from the urethra.During sexual arousal the tissue surrounding the urethra becomes engorged with blood and the Paraurethral/Skenes glands produce and fill with prostatic fluid. In fact, they are an analogue of male prostate. For this reason, many people mistakenly believe that the fluid they feel compelled to release during sex is urine.
Female ejaculation is a normal, healthy expression of female sexuality. For some women it can be highly pleasurable. But it is not a sign of a more “enlightened” sexuality or even more pleasure – it is just one of many kinds of sexual response! Without knowledge of female ejaculation, the natural assumption is that the fluid is urine. Often this triggers a shame response over having “wet the bed,” but perhaps while cleaning those sheets the women noticed that it didn’t smell like urine, and was not yellow like urine.
Interesting fact: it is not necessarily for this liquid to shoot out with a great force as you may have seen in some adult movies. In some women it may seep out in very small quantities.
