Can women ejaculate? It is a question whose answer usually causes a stir, coming to be considered a myth, which we are going to clarify below.
Female ejaculation is a reality in our population, in fact around two out of three women present it.
Some of the women who have experienced it due to lack of information tend to think that it is urine, so they end up feeling ashamed, and even stop enjoying the moment.
Only that is not the reality, since ejaculation is perfectly normal.
Below we will tell you everything you need to know about female ejaculation, so that you can practice it both alone and with others.
What is female ejaculation?
Female ejaculation is a phenomenon characterized by the output of fluids or liquid, different from the loss of urine, through the urethra, which may or may not be accompanied by orgasm. Which is totally normal.
On the anterior wall of the vagina (the G spot) there is an area that, when properly stimulated, can lead to female ejaculation.
The anatomical structure that has been shown to be linked to ejaculation in women is the female prostate (Skene’s glands, whose ducts drain into the urethra).
The female prostate gets its name from the fact that it has been shown to secrete prostate-specific antigens, being a rudimentary homologue of the male prostate.
In fact, a study carried out by the Universidad Libre Seccional Barranquilla, Colombia, showed that female ejaculation also contains other elements similar to semen, such as fructose and prostatic acid phosphatase.
However, just like male ejaculate, female ejaculate varies among women, ranging from a few drops to 57 ml in quantity, and pearly to opalescent gray in color.
Difference between female ejaculation and squirting
Conventionally, the terms female ejaculation and squirting are considered synonymous, but this is wrong. They are actually different.
In both, fluid comes out through the urethra during arousal or orgasms. The difference lies in the composition of the liquid in each one, and the power in which they come out of the urethra.
Biochemical analysis has shown that squirting contains comparable concentrations of urea, creatinine and uric acid in all women participating in the study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine .
Ultrasound monitoring of the bladder also revealed that squirting is essentially a loss of dilute urine during sexual activity, accompanied by fluid from the female prostate.
How does female ejaculation occur?
Female ejaculation represents the ultimate peak of female sexual stimulation. As we have mentioned, ejaculation can occur with or without orgasm.
During the arousal phase of the sexual act, the sensitivity of the nerve endings is at its highest point and the blood flow to the genitals of the woman favors the excessive secretion of a liquid through the walls of the vagina.
A thick, opalescent gray fluid is then secreted from the exocrine glands of Skene (or female prostate). They are located on the sides of the female urethra.
The female prostate discharges its contents through different ducts, especially during sexual stimulation.
Its function is unknown. A study published in the journal Medical Hypotheses theorized that the liquid may play a role as an antimicrobial agent.
benefits of female ejaculation
Ejaculation and orgasms have both psychological and physiological benefits, ranging from the cardiovascular system to reducing stress.
We mention some of its most studied effects.
Helps you relax and reduce stress
The relaxing benefits of orgasm occur through a constellation of different physiological reactions called the endocannabinoid system. It is made up of the nervous, endocrine and immune systems.
The endocannabinoid system releases the anandamide molecule, which inhibits the release of the GABA neurotransmitter, involved in the transmission of pain and other noxious stimuli, and of cortisol, involved in stress processing.
This is the reason why female or male ejaculation relieves stress symptoms, headaches and migraines.
Contributes to muscle relaxation
In the female sexual response, the muscles during orgasms are subjected to repetitive contractions.
These are striated muscles like the pelvic floor, and smooth like the vaginal muscles.
We can define muscle relaxation as what happens when the contraction of a muscle ends. After female ejaculation, the muscle fibers relax, achieving a sensation of satisfactory relaxation.
Muscle contractions in some cases are associated with the stress of everyday life and among the benefits of female ejaculation, muscle relaxation stands out, since it also decreases heart rate and oxygen consumption.
lowers blood pressure
Throughout the sexual act, the systolic and diastolic blood pressure rises. It has been shown that significant elevations of both can occur, generated by an increase in heart rate.
However, after female ejaculation or male ejaculation, blood pressure returns to normal levels and even a slight drop occurs.
Lowers the risk of heart disease
Cardiovascular risk is defined as “the presence of any physiological or functional state that predisposes to cardiovascular disease”.
In this sense, female ejaculation comes from intense sexual stimulation of the clitoris, which raises the heart rate and promotes circulation.
A woman’s muscles and tendons also contract and hormonal fluctuations occur during sexual stimulation.
All these factors speed up metabolism and calorie burning. A physiological response similar to any other physical exercise.
Exercise is highly beneficial for cardiovascular health, since it decreases the inflammatory state of blood vessels (common in arterial hypertension and arteriosclerosis) and improves tissue oxygenation.
Finally, the decrease in stress (which we have mentioned above) reduces the release of oxidizing and inflammatory substances. This predisposes to an optimal circulatory state.
Improves vaginal lubrication
During sexual stimulation, nervous and cardiovascular mechanisms are activated that stimulate circulation to the pelvic region.
When the blood flow increases in great quantity in the genital areas of the woman, the pressure favors the secretion of fluids through the vaginal walls (transudate).
Lubrication begins during the arousal phase where physical and/or audiovisual stimuli increase vaginal lubrication. Therefore, lubrication is both a physiological and a psychological response.
The release of large concentrations of estrogen during sexual stimulation also promotes vaginal lubrication, preventing intercourse or masturbation from being painful.
How do you get female ejaculation?
For some women, ejaculation can be difficult to achieve since they don’t know how to do it.
However, every woman, under the correct stimulation, can reach this peak of sexual satisfaction.
Next, we will show you some methods to achieve female ejaculation.
There are similarities in the male and female genitalia. In the male, the skin of the glans penis is packed with nerve endings that generate pleasure.
In women, pleasure can be obtained, in addition to vaginal penetration, by stimulating the clitoris.
The clitoris is a dense tissue with nerve endings that are very sensitive to touch. It is located between 1.6 cm and 4.5 cm from the urethra and vagina.
When your body is not sexually stimulated, the clitoris is covered by a layer of tissue called the clitoral hood. It fulfills a function similar to that of the foreskin in men.
During arousal, blood flow to the pelvic region and clitoris is increased. The latter swells and the hood retracts. This facilitates sexual stimulation.
Experiment using your hands, fingers, and even sex toys to stimulate the clitoris.
Certain sexual positions also favor sexual stimulation until reaching female ejaculation.
Depending on the position used, penetration may not be ideal to stimulate the clitoris sufficiently.
Some scientists formulated the notion that, in certain cases, orgasms or female ejaculation are associated with the distance between the clitoris and the vagina.
That is, the closer the vagina is, the more easily it can be stimulated during penetration.
The G spot is a small tissue that contains a cluster of nerve endings, located on the anterior wall of the vagina. The G spot is a branch of the clitoral nerve network.
The visible portion of the clitoris is actually the junction of two roots that extend deep into the vaginal wall. The G spot is part of these roots.
This structure varies in size and location, making it easier for certain women to find the point.
To find it, insert your finger or sex toy. You must tilt them forward (in the direction of your pelvis). Make movements in an up and down direction and, with the tips of your fingers, circular movements.
Remember that there is no concrete point. You must experiment until you locate a point that generates greater pleasure when stimulated.
Although it is difficult, since the position of the G-spot varies in all women, there are positions that favor ejaculation, such as the closed missionary position.
Finally, remember that experimentation and knowledge about your body will favor a pleasant and happy sexual life.
