ASK DR NOVOA – During sex, a women is expected to get wet. Can a female ejaculate fluid during orgasm?

Yes.

Female ejaculation (also known as gushing or squirting) refers to the expulsion of significant amounts of clear fluid from the Skenes glands or paraurethral ducts during stimulation and orgasm. The openings to these glands are located to the sides and below the urethra, one on each side.

The chemical make-up of this fluid is similar to seminal fluid from the male prostate and this is why it is often referred to as female ejaculation. However, the fluid is not expelled from the urethra like with the male. This is why the preferred terms are gushing or squirting.

The amount of fluid released, squirted, or ejaculated can be impressive and is often confused with incontinence of urine. However, squirting or gushing is not due to the loss of urine. The fluid produced is released from the Skene glands and, although it can be large in quantity, IT IS NOT URINE.

How much can be releases with squirting or gushing during orgasm??? Up to half a cup is not unusual. Enough in volume to require the use of one or two towels.

A second area which can produce a significant amount of vaginal fluid is the AFE zone, the AFE or the Anterior Fornix Erogenous Zone or the Epicenter. It is also known as the second G-spot. Stimulation of this area produces a rapid vaginal lubrication, especially during Orgasm.
