French Research Looks Into Female Squirting.

A new study by French researchers looked into a physical reaction of women during ejaculation called squirting. While the topic has caught the interest of people even during ancient Rome, with speculations on the liquid that comes out of the vagina during orgasm described as mysterious and magical thought to have health-giving properties, according to Asian texts, the real content of that liquid is unknown.

Older studies believe that liquid release is not urine but fluid similar to what the male prostate gland secretes during ejaculation, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. It is estimated that 10 to 40 percent of women squirt during climax a liquid about 30 to 150 ml.

To find out what that liquid is made of, French gynaecologists recruited seven women with known abilities to squirt during orgasm.

The study involved the subjects first required to empty their bladder, which was confirmed by pelvic ultrasounds. They were then aroused by masturbation or stimulated by a partner, which took from 25 to 60 minutes until they orgasm.

Two pelvic scans were made just before and after the orgasm, which found that their bladder was full again during the pre-ejaculation phase and empty during the post-ejaculation phase.

But when the fluid that was squirted was analysed, it showed mixed results. Five of the women's release contain both urine and prostatic-specific antigen (PSA), manufactured by the Skene's glands, the female equivalent of the prostate gland, but the other two had no PSA in their urine and liquid squirt.

Their conclusion, found in the study titled "Nature and Origin of Squirting in Female Sexuality," stated that urine was squirted as an involuntary emission during sexual activity, but there is a marginal contribution of prostatic secretions in some cases.

An Australian sex therapist and Fairfox blogger, Matty Silver, found the 25 to 60 minutes masturbation period until orgasm too long that it is but natural by the time these women climaxed for them to have fresh urine inside their bladder.

Barry Komisaruk from Rutgers University noted that while the French study confirmed two different types of liquids were squirted by the women, it did not find out if the fluids play a physiological role in the sexual activity.
