Female Ejaculation – Separating Fact from Fiction
Date posted: 28/03/17
Think men are the only ones who can ejaculate? Prepare to have your mind blown, because women can do it too. Otherwise known as ‘squirting’ or ‘she-jaculation,’ female ejaculation is the third most popular porn search in Australia. Despite its apparent popularity, squirting is still quite mysterious. Even scientists aren’t 100% sure what causes it.
Lucky for you, we’re not just the hottest escorts in Sydney; we’re also experts when it comes to anything related to sex. To help clear any confusion, these are the facts you need to know about female ejaculation.
What Is Female Ejaculation?
Not to be confused with coital incontinence (when a woman urinates involuntarily during sex), female ejaculation involves a sudden release of natural lubricant. Most women gradually become more lubricated as they experience arousal. It appears a large quantity of this lubricant gets released all at once during female ejaculation, causing it to squirt out of the vagina.
Pretty amazing right? This might come as a bit of a shock the first time it happens, but rest assured it’s perfectly normal, if a little rare.
Where Does It Come From?
To explain where female ejaculations come from, we have to delve pretty deep into the female anatomy. ‘Real’ squirting (which doesn’t involve any urine) occurs all thanks to a couple of small glands located near the opening of the vagina.
Sometimes called the female prostate, these glands are thought to be responsible for producing the fluid that gets released during squirting. Don’t expect a deluge though. Research suggests that only around 1.5 millilitres of fluid gets released during the average female ejaculation.
What Causes Women to “Squirt”?
Female ejaculation occurs during orgasm, when the muscles of the uterus contract. This contraction forces the natural lubricant outwards. Depending on what study you read, one popular theory suggests that female ejaculation can only happen if the orgasm is really intense.
Some sources claim that female ejaculation is linked to the G spot, and that without G spot stimulation, a woman can’t ejaculate. So if all it takes for women to ejaculate is G spot stimulation, just about anyone should be able to do it right? Wrong. Some G spots are harder to find than others, so it’s not quite that simple.
Who Can Do It?
According to some scientists, only around 10% of women can ejaculate. Why? No one really knows, although it could depend on the ability to really relax and let go during sex. It could also be hereditary, or just pure good luck. The most important thing to remember about female ejaculation is that no one can do it just because someone asks them to. If it’s going to happen, it has to happen naturally.
Whatever the causes are, women who can ejaculate should be proud of their abilities. It’s a pretty rare talent, and if porn searches are anything to go, it’s in high demand.
