Female Ejaculation Part 6: The Urethra and…

October 12, 2009

The following information has been taken from the page of Female Ejaculation: Unleash The Ultimate G-Spot Orgasm.

The Urethra: 

The bladder is above the top inward end of the vagina. The urethra is the medical name for the slender tube that runs along the top or front side of the vagina and conducts urine from the bladder to the urethral opening near the inner lips. 

The average urethra is about 1.5 inches (4 centimeters) long, which is much shorter than the similar canal in a man’s penis. Because it’s so short, women are much more susceptible to urinary tract and bladder infections. 

For many women, the  opening of the urethra (meatus) is especially sensitive to stimulation since it’s surrounded by the beginning of the urethral sponge. 

One way to avoid a urinary tract or bladder infection is to drink a lot of water, so that you are always flushing out the canal and for the same reason make sure to take a piss after sex. Before I move on to the urethral sponge, can I just say that when I was a kid, I thought that my pee came out of my vagina and when I found out about the existence of tampons, I couldn’t figure out how they worked, because I thought they would automatically overflow when you took a piss. 

The Urethral Sponge:

The entire urethra is surrounded by spongy tissue under the upper surface of the vagina which is called the urethral sponge. This tissue can become erect, and the sponge is composed of up to 40 little glands and ducts referred to as paraurethral since “para” means beside or near. 

Dr. Milan Zaviacic, a medical professor at Comenius University in Slovakia, has been studying women’s urethral sponges since the early 1980s. He has clearly demonstrated that the tissue secretes the same chemicals produced by the male prostate. Since these organs also develop from the same tissue in men and in women, many sexologists now use the term female prostate for the glands and ducts that surround the urethra. 

With sexual arousal and firm pressure, the urethral sponge swells with fluid, Though the exact physiology has yet to be completely understood, it’s clear that female ejaculate comes from the urethral sponge/female prostate at least in part. 

Vaginal Lubrication: 

Natural vaginal lubrication emanates from another source. This thicker, slippery fluid comes from the Bartholin glands, two small organs located on each side of the vaginal opening. 

The Perineum: 

The perineum is the sensitive tissue between the vagina and the anus. Many women find stimulation of the area highly pleasurable because of its rich nerve endings and its ability to become erect. Plus, it’s close to another one of the most sensitive organs in the body – the anus. It could be that the back wall of the vagina is so sensitive in some women because of its proximity to the perineum and the anus. 

I think it’s a good idea to go on an inch by inch exploration of all these areas, not necessarily in search of pleasure, but to familiarize yourself with where they are and how they respond to varying degrees of touch and pressure.

    I agree your pubes drawing looks like 3 day old stubble on the face of a man who gets serious 5 oclock shadows. Maybe you were going for the merkin look?

    Yeah, I gotta say: my pubic hair looks NOTHING like that. And it goes between my legs, not just on the mons.
