If until now you thought you needed a penis to ejaculate, find out that all you need is just a urethra, or the tube that allows you to eliminate urine out of your body. Ejaculation usually occurs when during sexual arousal or orgasm, some fluid is expelled from the urethral opening. It can be urine or the cervical fluid that lubricates your vagina.
Is it common?
In a research made on 233 participants more than 50% experienced ejaculation once and 14% of them during orgasm. A more recent study on female ejaculation concluded that around 70% of the women who participated for the research are squirting. So this phenomena is quite common.
Is ejaculation the same thing as squirting?
Although the terms are used interchangeably, squirting is essentially water-down urine and it is more common than ejaculation although sometimes it may contain a combination of other fluids as well. This female ejaculatory fluid comes from the bladder, the same way as when you’re peeing only more intense and sexier.
What exactly is ejaculate?
Female ejaculation is a white, thick fluid that is similar to diluted milk and contains small amounts of urine, creatinine and some components like prostatic acid phosphatase and antigen than semen also contains.
Where does the fluid come from?
This fluid is released from your Skene’s glands that are surrounding your urethra, on front wall of the vagina. Each of them contains a number of openings to accommodate fluid secretion and release ejaculate.
So it isn’t urine?
Not really. Although when that fluid is released it’s diluted with urine, it mostly contains several prostate enzymes.
Wait — it can be both?
In a way. The female ejaculation fluid contains components of urine like creatinine and urea but also fluid from the female prostate gland.
How much is released?
A study made on 320 participants in 2013 suggested that the amount of fluid that is released can range from 0.3 mL to 150 mL. So basically, you can fill half a cup with the expelled fluid that is ejaculated when sexually aroused.
What does ejaculation feel like?
Although it can be experienced differently from one person to another, some women say that it doesn’t feel different from orgasm while others describe it as a wave of warmth that raises between their thighs.
Does it have a taste or a smell?
Also knowns as the nectar of gods, female ejaculation tastes sweet and does not smell like urine.
According to one 2014 study, ejaculate tastes slightly sweet. That’s quite fitting for a fluid that was dubbed “nectar of the gods” in ancient India.
Is there a connection between ejaculation and the G-Spot?
Some researchers suggest that female ejaculation usually occurs after G-spot stimulation, however since this region is not so easy to locate, being also a part of your clitoral network, the connection between those two is still debatable. However, if you’re able to find your G-spot you can enjoy a mind-blowing orgasm even if you’re not ejaculating.
Is it really possible to ejaculate “on command”?
Once you know how this works for you, it’s easier to increase the chances of squirting but most women cannot really ejaculate when they want to. The whole idea in the end is for you to focus on feeling the orgasm and all the sensations that come along instead of how big is the puddle you’re making.
How can I try?
Self-stimulation is the best way to discover your body and learn what you enjoy most so invest in a vibrator and try to reach that front wall of your vagina or use your fingers to explore vaginal stimulation and practice, practice, practice until you discover what works for you. A partner may also can help you achieve that orgasmic liquid.
What if I can’t?
If you will fixate on this it will take away all the pleasure from sex and probably won’t experience squirting either. Try to relax and remember you can have a fulfilling sex life no matter if you ejaculate or not. Learn to enjoy the journey not the destination and while doing so, you might have a pleasant surprise as well.
