Female ejaculation

Female ejaculation is the expulsion of noticeable amounts of fluid from the vagina during orgasm (climax) in females. The largest component of this fluid is frequently generated by Skene's glands. The clear or milky fluid that emerges (sometimes with force) during female ejaculation has a composition similar to the fluid generated in males by the prostate gland.

Medical authorities have historically denied the existence of female ejaculation. Such authorities also often maintain that the apparent phenomenon of female ejaculation at climax is either a myth, or is actually involuntary urination. However, the controversy is becoming less as there is more awareness of the actual experience of female ejaculation had by many women. Research into female ejaculation has apparently not yet been done.

In 2002, Emmanuele Jannini[?] of L’Aquila University[?] in Italy showed that there may be an explanation for this phenomenon and for the frequent denials of its existence. Skene's gland openings are usually the size of pinholes, and vary in size from one woman to another, to the point where they appear to be missing entirely in some women. If Skene's glands are the cause of female ejaculation, this may explain the observed absence of this phenomenon in many women.

Ejaculation in women seems to be aided or caused by stimulation of the area of the vagina known as the Grafenberg spot (G-spot).

Female ejaculation and the British film censors

In the United Kingdom, the British Board of Film Classification denies the existence of the phenomenon of female ejaculation, regarding it instead as urination, thus banning its depiction under its rules that ban the depiction of urolagnia.
