Can women ejaculate like a hose pipe gushing water, or is it just a myth fed to us by porn?
Well, my dears, it is a myth in many ways … But some of us can actually squirt!
The porn industry has long imposed on women (and men) unrealistic expectations in the bedroom. People who can go at it for hours, men who are never brought to orgasm from oral, people who feel no pain from anal… well, the list goes on and on. The squirting vagina is another of these unrealistic expectations, but it should be noted that as a concept it is only far-fetched and not completely untrue.
The Journal of Sexual Medicine states that the fluid emitted from a woman’s genitals during orgasm has all the characteristics of prostate plasma, meaning that, when women squirt, their Paraurethral / Skene’s gland (which is the equivalent to a man’s prostate gland) is active and aroused. As my readers found out a few months ago, when men’s prostates are stimulated, they shoot further and harder so it’s understandable that many think this would be the same in women. Unfortunately, it’s not always true.
We should also be aware of the fact that this is a skill you are born with and not one that can be learnt. Research in this department has shown that this area of female sex education is still unmapped territory with figures of women who can squirt during sexual intercourse varying between six and 60 per cent! Now that’s a big difference, isn’t it?
Finally, although man has landed on the moon and discovered the cure to syphilis and has also cloned a sheep, the vagina still remains an unknown goddess whose awakening requires much knowledge and specific tools – neither of which is currently fully understood. So much so, that researchers, doctors and scientists are not exactly sure how the G-Spot works during sex. What they do know, however, is that squirting (the release of fluid, rather than ‘gushing’ which is what happens in porn) is not achieved through the stimulation of the G-Spot. Nevertheless, the Skene’s gland may sometimes be near or part of the G-Spot, so they can be interconnected (metaphorically) sometimes … it’s all quite mind blowing!
The truly important thing which I can hear you all asking is whether it makes a difference to a woman’s pleasure or not. Well … If your partner can make you orgasm and it feels good then… what does it matter?
