10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Female Ejaculation
Can you imagine what happens when a thousand sexologists get together? They actually talk about science — the science behind sex. And one of the most influential sex researchers of all time, Dr Beverly Whipple, a remarkable American scientist, has made three very important contributions to sex research.
What Beverly Did…
- She proved the existence of the G-spot on histological level and wrote about it extensively in her book: The G-spot first published in 1983.
- She proved that there is a nerve connecting a female’s cervix directly to her brain, bypassing the spinal cord, making orgasm in paralysed women possible.
- She proved that females can and do ejaculate! Yes, female ejaculation is a ‘thing’.
10 Curious Facts About Female Ejaculation
- It happens to some women, not all.
- It sometimes happens with orgasm, sometimes without.
- It is usually only a small amount, about a teaspoon full. It can be so little that you don’t even notice it or so much that it is embarrassing.
- It comes from small glands next to the urethra where the urine comes out, not the vagina and is therefore often confused with urine.
- These glands were previously known as the Skene’s glands, but are now officially called the female prostate glands.
- Female ejaculation looks like watered-down milk, not urine.
- It contains glucose and PSA — substances that are not found in urine.
- Some women do pass a small amount of urine during orgasm due to muscle contractions, but this is not ejaculation.
- It can sometimes be induced by ‘milking’ the G-spot in the same way a man’s prostate can be milked to produce ejaculate without orgasm.
- Ejaculation is completely normal and natural and nothing to be embarrassed about.
