.........Although still controversial, many scientists now accept that some women can ejaculate some kind of fluid during sexual arousal or orgasm. Just how common it is, what the fluid is, and whether it serves any kind of function are some of the most hotly debated questions of sex research today, and I am playing a small part in helping to investigate them.

Many historical texts, such as the Kama Sutra, spoke about female "semen", as did writers, including the Greek physician Hippocrates. Sometimes the writers may have been referring to everyday vaginal secretions, which increase during sexual arousal. However, there are several references to something more akin to ejaculation. In the 17th century, the Dutch physician and anatomist Regnier De Graaf spoke of "liquid as usually comes from the pudenda in one gush"......................................more from New Scientist

New Scientist is making no promises, but for women who would like this experience, here are some tips from US sex educator Deborah Sundahl.

  • Start with whatever techniques are normally best for arousal, for example stimulating the clitoris.
  • Next move on to the female prostate, or the G spot – it's probably the same thing. If the woman is lying on her back, this is directly above the uppermost wall of the vagina, or nearest to her tummy. This area should be stimulated with one or two fingers making a "come here" motion.
  • It is normal if the woman feels like she needs to urinate, as the prostate tissue surrounds the urethra, the tube through which urine leaves the bladder. She should ignore it and keep going.
  • With time and practice, a woman may experience orgasm and ejaculate.
