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… Expand

Do We Still Believe There Is a G-spot?
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
Comparison of the structural and ultrastructural characteristics of the female prostate between pregnant and non-pregnant plains viscacha (Lagostomus maximus).
TLDR
The paraurethral gland of Lagostomus maximus can be used as a model for studying the gland in other species since its structural and ultrastructural characteristics do not depend on the hormonal status of the female. Expand
Female sexual dysfunction = a new schematic educational and clinical tool with enhanced etiology and classification
TLDR
A new schematic biopsychosocial holistic “tool” that incorporates the classification, etiology, and treatment of the various female sexual dysfunctions is presented to narrow the existing educational and therapeutical instrumentation gap. Expand

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. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that there is insufficient evidence to accept or reject the concept of female ejaculation on scientific grounds, and the claim that "female ejaculate" is similar to semen from a vasectomized male is without foundation. Expand
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. Expand

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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand

Abstract This case study provides objective evidence supporting the hypothesis that female ejaculation, a partial, infertile homologue of male ejaculation, exists. A karyotypically normal,Expand

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. Expand

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. Expand
