‘Female Ejaculation’: Study Determines Fluid in Female Sex Comes From Bladder

A new study has solved the ‘longstanding mystery’ surrounding female ejaculation – but the results have been questioned by some ‘defensive’ men.

During sex, women can produce different forms of fluid. The first is the lubricating type, released when aroused, to facilitate intercourse.

Then, when orgasm is achieved, a “milky fluid” is excreted from the urethra, the hole from which women urinate.

About 5% of women release a clear fluid from the urethra upon orgasm, often in much larger quantities than the milky substance, a process known as “squirting”.

However, the origin of the liquid has never been determined.

Whereas studies determined that the milky fluid comes from Skene’s glands, tiny structures that drain into the urethra, the fluid that those who “squirt” expel has remained undetermined – until now.

Japanese scientists have just published to research which claims that the fluid comes from the bladder, indicating that only excreted “milky fluid” can be classified as female ejaculation.

The findings, published in the International Journal of Urologywere made after Miyabi Inoue, a urologist at the Miyabi Urogyne Clinic and her colleagues injected a blue dye mixed with water into the bladders of five female volunteers who could squirt, new scientist reported.

After being stimulated to climax, a researcher collected the ejected liquid in a sterile cup, and in all five women it was blue.

“This confirms that the squirt appears to be coming from the bladder,” Jessica Påfs from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden told the publication.

“But there are still so many questions, like does the fluid have the same composition as urine? And why do some women pass out this fluid and some don’t?”

Inoue said the women in the study all had good bladder control, suggesting their ejaculation was not caused by urinary incontinence.

At the time of squirting, four women in the study also appeared to experience female ejaculation, which contains prostate-specific antigen (PSA), which is also present in male ejaculate produced by the prostate.

The squirted fluid from four of the women in the study was found to contain PSA, suggesting that they were producing female ejaculate around the same time they were squirting urine, and that both fluids mixed in the urethra.

Despite the previous fact studies have also suggested that the phenomenon known as ‘squirting’ originates in the bladder – the findings have been met with skepticism by hordes of men online.

“It doesn’t taste like urine and it’s unlimited,” one guy lamented on Facebook.

“There might be urine in it, that doesn’t mean it’s urine,” another guy explained.

The women were quick to mock some of the shocked men and their responses, explaining that it was something “the women knew all along”.

“Men need a scientific study to admit that they get pissed on and not gods in bed,” one teased.

“I never understood men’s desire to make a woman squirt, surely getting a woman to orgasm would be a better achievement?” another added.

“Why are guys so defensive about this?” someone else thought.

While one woman remarked that it was ‘astonishing’ that in 2022 so little is still known about female sexuality.

In 2015, researchers in France performed ultrasound scans on women who express large amounts of fluid during orgasm, throughout the orgasm process.

They found that despite starting out with an empty bladder just before orgasm, their bladder was full again, only to empty again after orgasm.

“This study presents compelling evidence that squirting in women is chemically similar to urine and also contains small amounts of PSA which is present in the true ejaculate of both men and women,” said Barry Komisaruk, a sexual health psychologist at the time.

“This study helps reconcile the controversy over the fluids that many women report being released during orgasm.

“There are obviously two different fluids, with two different sources. It is not known whether either of these fluids plays a physiological role, that is, if it fulfills an adaptive function.
