Female ejaculation is a contentious topic. From a review of the literature, history indicates that it is not a modern concept; some females were aware of it in times past without understanding the role of the fluid or composition of the ejaculate. Over time, scholars experimented, mainly with anatomical studies, in an attempt to identify the source of the ejaculate and explore its physiological and anatomical benefits for the female sexual experience. Despite these studies, views about female… 

“Female Ejaculation: A Case Study” (1981), by Frank

In 1981, Frank Addiego and colleagues published "Female Ejaculation: A Case Study" in The Journal of Sex Research . In the article, the authors find that female ejaculation, or the expulsion of fluid

Female ejaculation and squirting as similar but completely different phenomena: A narrative review of current research

TLDR
Evidence is presented that female ejaculation (FE) or squirting (SQ) are similar but etiologically different phenomena, and that SQ is a massive transurethral orgasmic expulsion from the urinary bladder, while FE is the secretion of a very small amount of fluid from the paraUREthral glands.

Do We Still Believe There Is a G-spot?

TLDR
It is indeed a functional, dynamic, and hormone-dependent area (called clitorourethrovaginal, CUV, complex), extremely individual in its development and action due to the combined influence of biological and psychological aspects, which may trigger VAO and in some particular cases also female ejaculation (FE).

Impact of Urinary Incontinence on Women’s Sexuality

TLDR
Due to the high prevalence of coital UI in the female population and its strongly negative impact on women’s sexuality, patients should be specifically asked for coitalUI in the gynecologic visits.

TLDR
Credible evidence exists among different cultures that the female prostate and female ejaculation have been discovered, described and then forgotten over the last 2,000 years.

Concerning female ejaculation and the female prostate

TLDR
Findings establish that more similarities than differences exist between men and women in coital responses.

New insights from one case of female ejaculation.

TLDR
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.

TLDR
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.

Female ejaculation: Perceived origins, the Grafenberg spot/area, and sexual responsiveness

TLDR
A series of variables thought to be associated with female ejaculation, including expulsion of fluid during orgasm and its relationship, if any, to a sensitive anatomic area (Grafenberg spot), were examined.

The Grafenberg spot and female ejaculation: a review of initial hypotheses.

TLDR
Gynecologists found an area similar to other descriptions of the Grafenberg Spot in four of the 11 women and Examination of the ejaculate of six women failed to detect elevated levels of prostatic acid phosphatase and the substance appeared similar in biochemical properties to urine.

Female ejaculation: A case study

TLDR
Objective evidence is provided supporting the hypothesis that female ejaculation, a partial, infertile homologue of male ejaculation exists.

TLDR
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.

TLDR
A series of variables thought to be associated with perceptions of the Grafenberg Spot and its relationship, if any, to the female orgasmic response and female ejaculation were explored.
