The female ejaculate is a secretion that segregates the woman intermittently on the climax of sexual arousal.
Already Aristotle reported a separate fluid during female orgasm. In the 17th century, the Dutch doctor de Graaf described a gush of secretions during female arousal. During the 17th century, the secretion was also known as the flow of joy. However, since the 20th century, many scientists deny the existence of the female ejaculate. Others keep silence about the secretion. A kind of social and scientific tabooing of the phenomenon has occurred.
Even today, there is a great need for research on female ejaculate due to this taboo. At least today, science has agreed that the phenomenon is likely to exist.
The end sections of the female urethra are equipped with several tiny outlets. From these exits and from the right and left, spongy-looking tissue around the urethra around but some women during orgasm a clear secretion with smell and intense taste. This female ejaculation is associated with intense lust for women.
Chemical analyzes of intermittent secretions have revealed both urine and secretions of the paraurethral gland in the fluid. The Paraurethraldrüse is the female sexual gland and resembles in its tasks and characteristics of the male Prostata.
The existence of female ejaculate is now relatively uncontested. However, not every woman ejaculates during the climax. How many women experience ejaculation is so far difficult to estimate. Some studies speak of about half of all women. Others speak of only five percent.
The source of the secretion is also unknown. Many scientists suspect the paraurethral glands or the Bartholin glands as a source. Others speak of a uterine, tubal or cervical fluid in the female ejaculate. Sometimes there is talk of a transudate fluid, which is said to originate from the urethra (urethra).
Certain parts of the female ejaculate are probably even directly from the bladder, according to some scientists. The calcium content of the liquid, however, speaks against this theory. Nevertheless, for a long time after reporting ejaculation, women were treated for incontinence. For this reason, the female ejaculation for many women is still associated with feelings of shame.
Overall, research today assumes that the amount, color, and frequency of female ejaculation varies considerably from woman to woman, not least because of the lifestyle and eating habits of women.
Since the phenomenon has been taboo for some time, there is a great deal of research into the source, composition and function of the secretion. Some theories today assume that pheromones secreted with the secretion. Pheromones are fragrances for species-specific and non-verbal communication about biochemical substances. They automatically and unconsciously bring kindred to a certain reaction.
That sex pheromones play a role for humans is proven today. To what extent they are relevant for female ejaculate remains unclear.
For some time, female ejaculation has been equated with incontinence during sexual climax. At that time, medicine made a difference between women with existing incontinence and patients with no further signs of incontinence. Doctors assumed that it may lead to involuntary urine leakage during the loss of control of orgasm. This involuntary urination was in her opinion, the relaxation of the bladder muscle. The stimulation and extension of the vaginal wall during sexual intercourse was also sometimes considered to be the cause of urinary leakage during the sexual act. Pelvic floor training and similar measures should prevent the phenomenon.
Female ejaculation has long been associated with great shame because of the connotation of incontinence. For some women, when there are several milliliters of ejaculation, mental health problems that have a negative impact on the sex life are still to be expected today.
As a rule, however, female ejaculation today is no longer treated as a disease-related phenomenon. Rather, the total absence of lubrication during the sexual act is now regarded as serious. Vaginal dryness is often associated with pain and consequently affects the female sex life.
The causes of drought today are both psychological and biological factors. So should the degree of arousal affect the secretion. In mental stress, the excitement should be minimal possible and the secretion remains off. Also hormonal changes should play an increased role in connection with the vaginal secretions.
Due to the tabooing of female ejaculation, related complaints and possible diseases have so far received little research.
