A large percentage of women have misconceptions when it comes to squirting during orgasms and sex, and may even believe that it is a sign of pregnancy. Since female squirting is not normally covered in sexual education classes, many women have found their information on this phenomenon on television shows and pornographic movies. Before a woman can worry about whether it is a sign of pregnancy, she first has to understand what squirting is.
Most women have probably not experienced squirting or female ejaculation during sexual intercourse, and that is perfectly normal. It is estimated that only five to six percent of all women ejaculate during intercourse, and some only experience the sensation once in their lifetimes. While it may cause embarrassment for some women, it is also a perfectly normal sexual response.
What is Female Ejaculation?
The term female ejaculation or squirting is used to describe the liquid that comes out of the vagina or vulva during an orgasm. The liquid actually originates in the bladder and is released during the muscle contractions that occur during an orgasm. Since bladder leakage is also common in women who are pregnant, squirting can often be seen as a sign of pregnancy center. Since not all women experience female ejaculation, it does not always signal an impending birth. Another study also supports the theory that it is not a sign of pregnancy since there are indications that the fluid is produced by the female equivalent of the male prostate glands. Researchers have found that levels of certain hormones were lower in the feminine ejaculate than in their urine samples.
Squirting Does Not Always Mean Pregnancy
Many women do experience squirting for the first time while they are pregnant, and the phenomenon is often caused by undo pressure on their pelvic regions. Whether this causes the female glands to produce the fluid during an orgasm or if the hormonal changes during pregnancy play a role, is still being studied by researchers. It is the women who are not pregnant and experience squirting that are currently being studied.
The Skenes glands are the female glands that are thought to be similar to the male prostate, and perform some of the same functions. This includes producing the small amount of discharge some women experience during an orgasm. These glands are located on the top of the inner vaginal wall in the area commonly referred to as the G spot. The vaginal walls are lined with an absorbent mucus lining that can swell similarly to a man’s penis. When the glands are stimulated they can produce and eject a fluid that is similar to a man’s.
How to Stimulate the Skenes Glands
While squirting does not necessarily signal a pregnancy, some women want to experience it. The best advice is to practice first while masturbating, the first time a woman has the sensation it is often embarrassing and even humiliating. To stimulate the female glands it is best to use a warm bath to start, since the bed will probably be wet when you are finished.
After emptying your bladder and getting into the bath, start masturbating and stimulating the G spot like you normally would. It is also important to keep your pelvic muscles relaxed, since the contractions during an orgasm can help to cut off the flow of female ejaculate. Even after experiencing an orgasm from the G spot, it does not always guarantee that a woman will experience squirting.
Squirting may be experienced by women who are pregnant, but it is not a sign of pregnancy. Both pregnant and non pregnant women can experience the phenomenon, and some women only have one incident with female ejaculation during their lives. In essence, squirting during intercourse is a perfectly normal response to sexual stimulation. It originates in the female glands and is secreted from the body during an orgasm.
It is also important to remember that it is also normal to never be able to experience one, in reality only 5 percent of women ever have a wet orgasm. Instead treat it as a female sexual health response, and practice strengthening your pelvic muscles if you want the squirting to stop.
