ejaculation female is the particular mechanism by which some women at the time of orgasm or immediately before, expel the liquid from the paraurethral ducts.
The so-called Skene’s glands (or paraurethral glands ) secrete the aforementioned liquid , which, according to the experts of the female and male genital system , are equivalent to the prostate of the man.
Female ejaculation has always been a hotly debated topic. The most recent studies have shown that it is not a phenomenon linked to urinary incontinence and that the liquid emitted is an alkaline substance, containing PSA , PAP, traces of glucoseand fructose , but not urea or creatinine .
Despite various investigative attempts, the biological function of female ejaculation is unknown.
What is female ejaculation?
L ‘ female ejaculation is the act through which some women expel the liquid from the paraurethral ducts , at the time of’ orgasm or immediately before.
Two in number and comparable to small canals, the paraurethral ducts reside in the vagina ; precisely, they are located to the right and left of the external opening of the urethra , but at a slightly lower level.
The paraurethral ducts are connected with the so-called Skene’s glands (or paraurethral glands ), which represent the production site of the liquid emitted (or ejaculated), on the occasion of female ejaculation.
For the function they perform and, in part, also for the content of the liquid they secrete, Skene’s glands are equivalent to the male prostate .
What is orgasm ?
In short, orgasm is the maximum expression of sexual arousal resulting from the stimulation of the erogenous zones and the sexual organs.
HOW COMMON IS IT?
Female ejaculation is a phenomenon that affects only a minority of women with some regularity .
Its exact incidence in the female population is uncertain. Most likely, behind this uncertainty is the fact that women find the subject embarrassing and often prefer not to respond to it.
One of the most convincing studies on the spread of female ejaculation belongs to a certain Stanislav Kratochvil and dates back to 1994. Kratochvil sampled a group of 200 women from the Czech Republic and found that only 6% of these ejaculated regularly.
Female ejaculation has been a hotly debated topic for several decades.
To try to understand its origin, sexologists and experts on the female genital system have studied the phenomenon in depth, highlighting some fundamental characteristics and clarifying some doubts.
IS THERE A LINK WITH URINARY INCONTINENCE?
Until the early 1980s, most doctors and sexologists believed that the phenomenon of female ejaculation was somehow related to urinary incontinence and that the liquid emitted was similar to urine .
To prove that the above beliefs were inaccurate were several research groups, starting in 1982. This year, in fact, various scholars established with some degree of certainty that the female ejaculate is not urine (although it is also alkaline in nature), it has no connection with the urinary losses to which some women are subjected sexual intercourse and, finally, it is the result of the secretory activity of some glands of the female genital system. The discovery that the glands involved in the production of the liquid are Skene’s glands dates back to 2000.
According to the most recent investigations, there is no relationship between female ejaculation and the presence of urological problems in women.
WHAT DOES THE LIQUID CONTAIN?
Various researches on female ejaculate have shown that the liquid has the following characteristics:
- It has an alkaline pHlike urine, although it does not contain urea or creatinine (fundamental elements in determining the alkalinity of urine ).
- Contains two substances equivalent to PSA( prostate specific antigen ) and PAP ( prostatic acid phosphatase ) of men. PSA and PAP are two proteins that, in men, originate in the prostate, while, in women, they are produced in the Skene’s glands.
This property of Skene’s glands confirms, once again, the equivalence existing between these typical elements of the female genital system and the male prostate.
- Contains two sugars, glucose and fructose .
QUANTITY OF LIQUID EMITTED
According to a rather widespread myth, female ejaculation would involve the emission of large quantities of liquid.
The reality of the facts is quite different and, according to the most recent research, the volume of ejaculate emitted is generally comparable to that of a cup of coffee .
Moreover, considering the production of larger volumes to be possible clashes with the small size of Skene’s glands and with the limited physical space they have for storing the liquid.
The biological function of female ejaculation and the resulting fluid is unknown.
A scientific study published in 2009 tried to propose an anti-microbial role for the defense of the urinary tract from infections, but subsequent insights into this were not very convincing.
CONSEQUENCES IN THE LIFE OF COUPLES
According to various surveys, most women find female ejaculation an embarrassing phenomenon that can disturb their sexual life.
It is curious how all this tends to clash with what men think about it: many male subjects see in the female ejaculation of the partner a attestation of their virility and their sexual abilities.
