SQUIRTING & ORGASMS: Female Prostate Gland.

SQUIRTING & ORGASMS: Female Prostate Gland.


The Female Prostate Gland.

I’m asked a lot about squirting and what it is all about.  Many guys have probably seen it in porn and fantasied about it, but have yet to experience the elusive female ejaculation in person.

A woman will leak or squirt a clear to milky white liquid from her vagina, usually after deep vaginal stimulation usually on the G-Spot.   10-40% percent of women experience squirting,  releasing some 30 to 150mL of ejaculate, while others only secrete a small amount or nothing at all. (Salama S et al, 2015) Salama also believes that all woman can squirt – they just need to know how to make it happen and be stimulated in the right place.  I believe this too.

Many recent and older scientific studies report that females have an equivalent prostate gland.  This is sometimes referred to as the Skene’s gland (after its founder Alexander Johnston Chalmers Skene, a British gynecologist ), or the paraurethral gland.  There is much debate about whether this gland is the elusive G-Spot and it makes sense to me that it most likely is. This gland is said to be the point of origin for female ejaculation fluid and features in the complex workings of the female sex organs that contribute to orgasm and ejaculation during intercourse and sexual arousal.

Some women experience ejaculation, during a clitoral orgasm, some during sex and others with their orgasm, as explained by six anonymous women in a 2017 cosmopolitan article (Hills, R).  Because it only happens for me with deep stimulation in the g-spot area, it puzzled me how a clitoral stimulation alone could result in female ejaculation.  (I have seen clitoral stimulation result in male ejaculation but that’s another story). So I did a little bit more research and here is what I found.

Okay, so what does an anatomy lesson have to do with orgasms and the G-Spot?  Turns out that it may be very relevant knowledge for any man (or woman) wanting to be a star in the bedroom.

Zaviacic suggests that a potential reason for the elusiveness and difficulty in finding the G-Spot is part to do with the various types of prostates and where the ducts and glands are located inside the vagina.  It’s like as if women were not difficult enough to understand and figure out, so you would think one of the most important attributes of being a man – the ability to please a woman – should not have to be this complicated and complex.

The glands close location to the vagina is what causes ” mechanical expulsion of the contents of the glands and ducts of the female prostate by pressure of the penis during penocoitol friction or by contractions of the muscles around the urethra during orgasm” asserts Zaviacic.

Sounds simple enough right? Wrong!

It wasn’t until I read  Deborah Sundahl’s Female Ejaculation and the G-spot, that I learned that there are at least four different types of female prostate glands and the physiology of the different types could likely be the reason that some women can squirt and orgasm through sex while others only experience it on occasions and others have never experienced an orgasm through intercourse alone.  Sundahl references work by Dr. Milan Zaviacic who performed autopsy’s and examinations on over 150 female subjects during one of his many studies on the G-Spot.  Each type typically has a number of glands and ducts that empty into the urethral canal (where urine is expelled), which are thought to be responsible for producing ejaculate.

The most common, (in 70% of Women) has a large number of ducts clustered in a “ramp-shape”.  They are usually positioned nearer to the urethra (“meatus prostate”).

Also known as a “ramp-shaped” female prostate.

In 15% of Women who have the “ramp-shaped” prostate, the glands are nearer to the bladder (“posterior prostate”).

Less common (in 7% of women) is the “middle prostate” where the glands are distributed along the urethral canal with the majority of concentrated in the middle.

Image of Rudimentary Type Female Prostate The glands and ducts are mostly located in the middle of the urethral canal.
Also known as a “dumbbell-shaped” female prostate.

The “rudimentary prostate” in 8% of women, has significant lack of the glands and ducts responsible for producing female ejaculate, although  Zaviacic reports that “in all cases, at least one or a few glands and ducts occur”

Understanding where these glands are and how they participate in the orgasm and ejaculation process, brings you one step closer to figuring out how to make your woman (or yourself) squirt.   I will be delving further into the workings of the G-Spot, What female ejaculate is and Techniques for achieving female ejaculation (Squirting) in the next few articles in this series.

I have included links to the books, journals, and blogs I have referenced in this post if you are interested in reading more about what I have discussed.  I highly recommend  Deborah Sundahl’s book Female Ejaculation and the G-spot available from google books.
