Female EjaculationSerious study into female ejaculation has only occurred recently. Some ancient cultures depicted what seems to be female ejaculation in their artworks, but despite some historical evidence documenting female ejaculation in the past, medicine, until recently, has in the main attributed the expulsion of fluids by females to poor bladder control or urinary incontinence (Kinsey, 1953; Masters & Johnson, 1988; Bohlen, 1982; Kaplan, 1983; Golberg et al. 1983, Alzate, 1985, etc.).
The DiscoveryThe theory that women ejaculate was first proposed by Dr. Grafenberg, in 1950. His findings were not recognized until later researchers confirmed that women emit certain fluid, that differs from vaginal lubrication, during their sexual response (Grafenberg, 1950; Sevely & Bennet, 1978; Belzer et al., 1981; Perry & Whipple, 1981; Addiego et al., 1981; Sensabaugh & Kahane, 1982; Belzer et al., 1984; Zaviavic et al., 1984; Stifter, 1987; etc.). Thanks to this last group, the presence, in the suposed female ejaculation, of specific prostate acid phosphatase and fructose, elements normally present in male ejaculation, seems proven.
The StatsAnyhow, the investigators that support the existence of female ejaculation, seem to agree that it is a possibility that actually occurs in very few women: 10% for Whipple and Perry (1981), 14 % for Bullough et al. (1984), 40% for Darling, Davidson and Conway Welch (1990) and a 6% for Kratochvil (1994). Today, as more and more is learned about female ejaculation, researchers tend to believe that over 40% of woman have experienced ejaculation or are capable of achieving ejaculation with proper know how. To the women that ejaculated, it was all a mystery.
Types of OrgasmIt is evident now, that two distinct types of orgasms can occur. The clitora, by direct stimulation to the clitoris, and vaginal by direct stimulation to the G-Spot. Female ejaculation is much more prevalent in the vagina orgasm. The G-Spot is located approximately 3-4 inches inside the vagina and is made of tissue similar to the prostate gland in men. While female ejaculation is the common expression, ejaculation is perhaps the wrong word for it. Some women report a gushing or squirting and others say the liquid is expelled with little force. In fact, some called it a dribble. Amounts can vary; anything from a few drops to a cupful can be the result. Tales of gushing female orgasms are probably a little off the mark but there is no doubt that some women ejaculate both copiously and with great force. When female ejaculation occurs, the consensus is that it comes from the urethra and not the vagina. As we learned previously, the g spot surrounds the urethra and is composed of tissue very similar to the male prostate gland. Researchers say it is this paraurethral tissue that produces the ejaculate. Consequently, the description of the g spot as the female prostate is probably not that far off the truth!
The FluidThe ejaculate itself is surprisingly similar to male ejaculatory fluid. It is this fluid in men that carries the sperm and together make up the male ejaculate - semen. There is some agreement on the make up of female ejaculate. A liquid very similar to male prostate fluid is certainly in evidence in female ejaculate but there is often a significant quantity of other fluid - either from the bladder or urethra as well. It seems that both the quantity of ejaculate differs between women as does the make-up of the ejaculate. After repeated tests, one thing is certain, it is definitely not urine.
