Female Orgasm, Ejaculation & the G-Spot

The discovery of the g-spot
During the 1940's, when Dr Alfred Kinsey published his research into the "art of marriage," a Dr. Grafenberg's earlier research into the female orgasm came under scrutiny. Dr. Grafenberg had identified a small mass of erectile tissue around the female urethra, similar to tissue in the penis, as a source of female pleasure and orgasm. Grafenberg said that this tissue became enlarged during sex and "swelled out greatly at orgasm."

Research into the Grafenberg area, or g spot as it has come to be known, languished until the 1970's when researchers started correlating stimulation of the g spot with a resultant different type of orgasm - the vaginal orgasm. G spot orgasms are typically accompanied with vaginal and uterine contractions, whereas clitoral orgasms tend to be accompanied by only vaginal contractions. Sometimes, the g spot orgasm was accompanied by the expulsion of fluid at the point of orgasm - female ejaculation. In all cases, the researchers said that women who experienced a g spot orgasm described it as very powerful and much more protracted than a clitoral orgasm whether it was accompanied by female ejaculation or not.

The g spot is located about three or four inches inside the vagina on the front side of the vagina. Imagine lying on your back with your partner inserting their fingers inside your vagina and pressing them towards your navel. They should find your g spot just above the patch of rough tissue inside the vagina. It's thimble sized and should start to swell as it's massaged. It needs firm pressure, as it's sometimes hard to find.

If you're having trouble finding your g spot, consider trying a g spot massager. They can produce very intense g spot sensations. Some women report that stimulation of the g spot is often also accompanied by strong feelings of a need to urinate. This usually disappears quickly and feelings of pleasure should replace it with continued massaging. You'll know when you find it. Experiment with how best to stimulate your g spot but remember that firm pressure is required. G spot toys can help in many instances.

Female Ejaculation
Serious study into female ejaculation has only occurred recently. Some ancient cultures depicted what seems to be female ejaculation in their artworks, but despite some historical evidence documenting female ejaculation in the past, medicine has in the main attributed the expulsion of fluids by females to "poor bladder control" or "urinary incontinence". Others thought that the expulsion of fluid was the result of excess vaginal secretions. Research in the last few decades has shown both these suggestions to be incorrect and that in fact nearly half of all women can experience ejaculation either through self stimulation or sexual activity with a partner. To the women that ejaculated, it was all a mystery. Whilst female ejaculation was generally thought to occur at the time of orgasm, it can in fact occur in the lead up to orgasm as well. In fact, female ejaculation can occur at any time during sexual arousal.

While female ejaculation is the common expression, ejaculation is perhaps the wrong word for it. While some women report a "gushing" or "squirting", others say the liquid is expelled with little force, in fact some called it a "dribble". Amounts can vary; anything from a few drops to a cupful can be the result. Tales of "gushing female orgasms" are probably a little off the mark but there is no doubt that some women ejaculate both copiously and with great force.

When female ejaculation occurs, the consensus is that it comes from the urethra and not the vagina. As we learnt previously, the g spot surrounds the urethra and is composed of tissue very similar to the male prostate gland. Researchers say it is this paraurethral tissue that produces the ejaculate. Consequently, the description of the g spot as the female prostate is probably not that far off the truth!

The ejaculate itself is surprisingly similar to male ejaculatory fluid. It is this fluid in men that carries the sperm and together make up the male ejaculate - semen. There is some agreement on the make up of female ejaculate. A liquid very similar to male prostate fluid is certainly in evidence in female ejaculate but there is often a significant quantity of other fluid - either from the bladder or urethra as well. It seems that both the quantity of ejaculate differs between women as does the make-up of the ejaculate. After repeated tests, one thing is certain, it is definitely not urine.

I hope this article has helped you learn a little bit more about the g-spot and female ejaculation. Please drop me a line if you have questions or would like to share your orgasmic experiences.
