Scientists have discovered what female ejaculation is made of.

Female ejaculation has been one of the most debated questions in modern sexology, because no one has been able to crack the code about how or why it happens.

Female ejaculation, squirting or gushing has been a consistent point of curiosity throughout human history. This phenomenon has been written about from as early as 4th Century China, where the liquids excreted during orgasm were believed to be imbued with mystical and healthful properties.

Female ejaculation continues to fascinate today.

So what exactly is squirting? The short answer is that we’re not exactly sure, but discussion around it is approximately one part science, three parts controversy.

A recent study in The Journal Of Sexual Medicine caused quite a stir last week that claimed to hold insight into the mysteries of squirting. It was based on research on seven female volunteers who reported emitting large quantities of fluid during sex – around a cup each.

Researchers evaluated samples of all the women’s ‘squirted liquid’ and found that all seven consisted primarily of urine. Five of the samples also contained very small amounts of prostatic-specific antigen (PSA), an enzyme that in females is produced in Skene glands and that in males is produced by the prostate gland.

Whilst male ejaculation is simply a fact of life, female ejaculation or squirting has remained a bit of a mystery until now, thanks to this research.

Here’s what they’ve discovered:

  • They discovered that the liquid was coming from the bladder – even when the bladder had been emptied before sexual activity.
  • Female ejaculation is basically urine – sometimes mixed up with an enzyme called prostatic- specific antigen (PSA).

There you have it – when a woman ejaculates during sex, she basically has a little wee. Happy we got that straightened out.

We’re still not entirely sure why women squirt, or why different women squirt different substances; we are sure that the results of this study should have no bearing on whether women are allowed to express themselves sexually or on whether those who think squirting is a turn on. If you have enjoyed it this far it shouldn’t matter what squirting is made of.

Female ejaculators know firsthand and understand their own bodies well enough to know what squirting is. That even, if the fluid they emit during orgasm comes from the bladder, it looks, smells and feels different from urine.

Female ejaculation should be celebrated and enjoyed and if you want to look at its biological basis, let’s quote Debby Herbenick, Ph.D., research scientist at Indiana University and author of Sex Made Easy, who puts it rather well:

“In the end, we all just have to become comfortable with the fact that sex involves the genitals and the genitals are down there. It’s a big, messy thing—but it’s worth it!”

The fact that female ejaculation has some urine in it, does it really matter?
