The Australian government refuses to believe it’s possible but female ejaculation has been widely written about for thousands of years across a wide range of cultures.
Did you know that UK and Australian governments have previously banned depictions of female ejaculation, stating that it’s a myth?
FACT: female ejaculation (FE) exists! Between 10 and 55 percent of women experience ejaculation and research shows the liquid is chemically different to urine. Our ‘ejaculate’ originates from the paraurethral glands and can help sperm stay alive in the vagina. There is no need to be ashamed of a healthy bodily function.
Female ejaculation and the female prostrate have been described through history from as early as Ancient Greek civilisation, so why have we forgotten all about it now?
Around 400BC Hippocrates wrote about female ‘semen’ and how he thought FE was necessary for pregnancy to take place. Aristotle disagreed with the baby connection, but he reported women having wet dreams, ejaculating in their sleep and waking up very excited! He observed FE happened at orgasm and far exceeded male ejaculate.
Then around 160AD Claudius Galenus reported women ejaculating ‘semen’ with pleasurable spasms. He studied non sexually active women and concluded that women had to ejaculate their semen regularly or they would suffer terrible pain associated with fluid build up.
Fourth century Chinese Taoist texts record the wonders of FE using much more beautiful and evocative terms than we do today. The female prostrate was described as a ‘moon flower’ that gushes copious amounts of nectar. A Chinese poem from 826AD also talks about the ‘milk fruit’ (the area we now know as the ‘G-spot’) and gives instructions for a man to stimulate this area with his finger or penis tip to bring forth the female honey. Later poems from the 13th and 14th Century explain how the G-spot becomes enlarged and ejaculates upon stimulation.
The earliest Indian reference to FE is the Kamasutra from 200–400 A.D. Other texts further explain that the key to sexual enjoyment and health is to make the woman “flow” before the man “flows”.
All these early texts clearly differentiate between vaginal lubrication and FE.
Even in the 1500s Flemish anatomist, Andreas Vesalius, wrote that women create semen or liquid during sex and ejaculate like men.
In the 1600s Reinier De Graaf explained how the periurethral glands were the female version of the male prostrate and the source of female ejaculatory fluid. He wrote in great detail about the difference between vaginal lubrication and ejaculation.
Much later in 1954 Ernest Grafenberg reported women masturbating themselves to orgasm in eruptions of fluid. When he tested the fluid, he detected no urine and concluded it came from glands associated with the G-spot.
So there you have it! Our governments are two thousand years behind the times when it comes to female sexual functioning. Scientists from the present day to as far back as Aristotle agree – female ejaculation exists. Myth: busted.
