Introduction and hypothesisWomen expel various kinds of fluids during sexual activities. These are manifestations of sexual arousal and orgasm or coital incontinence. This study is aimed at suggesting a diagnostic scheme to differentiate among these phenomena.MethodsWeb of Science and Ovid (MEDLINE) databases were systematically searched from 1950 to 2017 for articles on various fluid expulsion phenomena in women during sexual activities, which contain relevant information on sources and… Expand

Urinary leakage during sexual intercourse among women with incontinence: Incidence and risk factors
Background Coital incontinence is an under-reported disorder among women with urinary incontinence. Women seldom voluntarily report this condition, and as such, related data remains limited and is atExpand

Abstract In the field of female sexuality, the existence of the so-called “G-spot” represents a topic still anchored to anecdotes and opinions and explained using non-scientific points, as well asExpand
Vaginal Mesh for Urinary Incontinence and Prolapse: Impact on Sexual Function
Sexual function is an often overlooked and underdiscussed topic in the medical field and between clinicians and patients overall, and it is imperative that clinicians discuss any and all possible complications of mesh surgery with patients preoperatively, including any effects in regard to sexual function.

Supporting sexuality and improving sexual function in transgender persons
Experts in the field discuss trans sexuality across the gender dysphoric spectrum, and suggest ways in which trans persons can be supported in their sexuality and sexual function. Expand

The sequence of images is guidance based upon a woman’s innate understanding of her body so that she may move to a higher state of knowledge where her body performs better, and if her mind is inspired by the success, then her body could proceed beyond the achieved state repeatedly. Expand

The study aims to clarify the etiology of fluid leakage at orgasm, distinguish between associated physiological sexual responses, and differentiate these phenomena from symptoms of illness. Expand
Nature and origin of "squirting" in female sexuality.
The present data based on ultrasonographic bladder monitoring and biochemical analyses indicate that squirting is essentially the involuntary emission of urine during sexual activity, although a marginal contribution of prostatic secretions to the emitted fluid often exists. Expand
An investigation into the origins of a copious vaginal discharge during intercourse: “enough to wet the bed”‐that “is not urine”
A case study of large‐volume vaginal discharge during intercourse originally prepared in 1979, is described, as is the course of investigation into its origin. It is argued that this “wetting of theExpand
[Orgasmic expulsions in women].
"female ejaculation" is considered to be a rare phenomenon, which nevertheless deserves attention in sexological consultations and should not cause feelings of shame, but should be accepted as a normal part of female sexual reaction. Expand

Data of the two premenopausal women presented further underline the concept of the female prostate both as an organ itself and as the source of female ejaculation. Expand

The literature is unclear on whether the glands open through a single or multiple orifices either into the distal urethra (similar to the male prostate) or a single duct orifice onto the left and right sides of the external urethral orifice. Expand
New insights from one case of female ejaculation.
New biochemical evidences are provided demonstrating that the clear and abundant fluid that is ejected in gushes (squirting) is different from the real female ejaculation, proving that the organs and the mechanisms that produce them are bona fide different. Expand
