Many experts still question whether female ejaculation even exists —in the year we still haven't yet sorted out female sexual physiology. Anything to do with female sexuality has been, and continues to be, taboo in the strongest sense of the word. This is what fuels my work as a sex therapist turned neuroscientist —and exactly what I explore in my Glamour column, Ask. Nan , and in my new book, Why Good Sex Matters. The truth is we probably know just as much if not more about the composition of the fluids that flowed on the surface of Mars billions of years ago than we do about the nature of what is expelled by the human female during sex.
What IS female ejaculation?
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!? But perhaps most importantly of all, just how do you get a ticket to the wettest party in town and teach yourself to squirt? But word on the street is if you have a vagina instead, you can also ejaculate similarly gloopy fluids from your urethra too. Say what? We put the question to our favourite health expert Dr Roger Henderson and he came up with a suitably formal response. Some estimates suggest that this could be anything from 10 to 50 per cent, but it occurs more commonly than is realised and is a perfectly normal phenomenon. Fortunately, Dr Henderson is a progressive thinker and can confirm that squirting is NOT the same as peeing. To clear this matter up further, who better to speak to than the world squirting champion Lola Jean.
What is “squirting” or “female ejaculation”?
Where does it comes from? Is it pee? And how might I make it happen for me? The first time Gilly, 41, squirted, it left her on a high. I took a photo of the wet patch so I could reassure myself that it really had happened. Tash, 26, was a bit more floored — and worried about the carpet. I mopped up the rug, then had a google.
You just need a urethra. Your urethra is a tube that allows urine to pass out of the body. Ejaculation occurs when fluid — not necessarily urine — is expelled from your urethral opening during sexual arousal or orgasm. Surprisingly so! Although the exact numbers are difficult to nail down, small studies and surveys have helped researchers get a sense of just how diverse female ejaculation can be. About 33 people 14 percent said that they experienced ejaculation with all or most orgasms. The most recent cross-sectional study on female ejaculation followed women age 18 to 39 from to
