It can happen when a female becomes sexually aroused, but there is not necessarily an association with having an orgasm. Scientists do not fully understand female ejaculation, and there is limited research on how it works and its purpose. Female ejaculation is perfectly normal, although researchers remain divided on how many people experience it. In this article, we look at the current thinking on the mechanisms, purpose, and frequency of female ejaculation. The urethra is the duct that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. Analysis has shown that the fluid contains prostatic acid phosphatase PSA.

My best friend regularly obsesses about her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend, who was a "squirter," and therefore the real-life incarnate of many men's fantasy partner. Porn has encouraged men to believe that when they've truly rocked a woman's body, it starts doing an impression of the Bellagio Fountain in the second-to-last scene of Ocean's Eleven. The average woman, myself included, doesn't know whether squirting is real or fake beyond your standard urban legends, like, "Ashley's friend's ex's friend's aunt's babysitter's college roommate squirts," which does not count. So, like the installment in the classic girl's mystery series entitled Nancy Drew and the Case Of Projectile Vaginal Excretions , I sleuthed with the help of a number of experts in order to solve the mystery. In other words, an unverifiable legend. Female ejaculation is not uncommon in the average woman, says Kerner. A small amount of whitish and milky fluid that's produced during or just before orgasm, its contents are different than the natural lubrication produced when sexually stimulated. It has a tiny bit of momentum, but it doesn't shoot out. On the other hand, "squirting" or "gushing" — copious amounts of fluid that shoot out of the woman at the same time as her supposed orgasm — is actually caused by a deliberate manipulation by the woman of her own body, specifically an intense bearing down on the pelvis, according to Kerner.
Fair warning, this article will make reference to squirting, gushing and the G-spot. While pornography featuring female ejaculation has been banned in the UK , it represents the third most searched category in Australia and has been a consistent point of curiosity throughout history. Many of you may be surprised to learn that females are capable of ejaculation, however, the phenomena has been written about from as early as 4 Century China, where the liquids excreted during orgasm were believed to be imbued with mystical and healthful properties. As it turns out, during orgasm some women per cent experience the involuntary emission of fluid ranging from 30 to mL. This has become known colloquially as squirting, though this usually refers to a larger amount of liquid being excreted. In , psychologist Havelock Ellis proposed that female ejaculation was analogous to semen and originated from the Bartholin glands two pea-sized glands responsible for secreting mucous which lubricates the vagina. He came to this conclusion by observing women masturbate, noting that ejaculation occurred more frequently with palpation of an erogenous zone on the front wall of the vagina which became later known as the G-spot. This landmark study demonstrated a clear difference between the liquid excreted during orgasm and urine, a finding that was later confirmed by several independent scientific studies. Yet the scientific community remains divided, some questioning the very existence of the G-spot while others question the vast differences in the amount of fluid expressed by women. Some women report very little liquid mL resembling watered-down milk, while others express far greater volume.
