The scientific approach

Alice’s surprise

Scientific research

RECENT AMAZING “DISCOVERIES” :

- WOMEN HAVE A FULLY FUNCTIONAL PROSTATE.

- THE G-SPOT IS THE SWOLLEN SURFACE OF THE PROSTATE FELT THROUGH THE VAGINAL WALL WHEN THE WOMAN IS SEXUALLY AROUSED.

- ALL WOMEN EJACULATE, SOME VERY MASSIVELY

- THE CLITORIS, FAMILIAR TO MOST, IS ONLY THE TIP OF A COMPLEX BURIED STRUCTURE SIMILAR TO THE PENIS AND ITS CONNECTED GLANDS

- THE NERVOUS SYSTEM CONNECTING SEXUAL ORGANS AND INDUCING SEXUAL PLEASURE, IS VERY SIMILAR FOR WOMEN AND FOR MEN . MALE AND FEMALE  SEXUAL ANATOMY CAN BE PARALLELED TO ONE ANOTHER.

A human foetus only starts growing differentiated sexual organs after the first 8 weeks of pregnancy, but the gender specifics are not as radical as we often think : during the first 8 weeks, male and female foetuses have similar pre-genital structures that will then develop into one or the other gender, without losing their common original structural and functional morphology. Male tissues that develop into a penis, a prostate, and urogenital sinuses can also be observed in a comparable form in female bodies (the female reproductive system, however, obviously remains unique ) .

Thus we can observe strong similarities between male and female genital structural morphologies and also between male and female sexual arousal and subsequent orgasms:

○      The female clitoral orgasm, triggered by clitoral stimulation is comparable to the traditionnal male orgasm achieved through stimulation of the penis.

○      The female vaginal orgasm, triggered in part by stimulation of the G spot (which is in fact the swollen surface of the female prostate), can be compared to a much more taboo source of male sexual orgasm reached through anal stimulation of the male prostate.

THE CLITORIS AND ITS FUNCTION (compared to the male penis and testicles) :

The clitoris is not just the small sensitive outgrowth that we have been trained to think it is. It was recently discovered (1981) that the clitoris is, in every way, similar to a buried penis – its testicles having been transformed into lubricating glands, called the Bartholin glands, and its shaft being the only visible part.

THE CLITORAL APARATUS WHEN AROUSED

The Bartholin glands are located on either side of the back portion of the vulva, in the thick fleshy part of the female vulva. They produce a specific liquid that lubricates the vagina during  sexual arousal.

The clitoris and vagina embracing the penis during intercourse as seen facing toward the woman. The outer layers of skin, fat, and muscle have been dissected away, and the penis is shown in simplified cross-section for position only. Atop the pea-shaped clitoral glands, normally the only part visible outside the body, one can see the ascending portion of the clitoral shaft. Upon reaching its apex (which Dickinson calls « the clitoral knee »), the shaft bends downward and divides into the two « legs » or crura which encircle the vaginal opening.

The clitoral organ as a whole thus represents an autonomous system of sexual arousal as it is connected to the pudendal nerve. It is able to generate sharp and precisely located orgasms that are similar to the “classical” male orgasm reached through penis stimulation.

THE FEMALE PROSTATE, THE “G SPOT” AND FEMALE EJACULATION

Females do have a prostate. It is slightly smaller and shaped differently, yet it is completely functional.

It was discovered in 1672 by a Dutch anatomist named Regnier de Graaf who identified it as the source of female ejaculation. The female prostate works as an intricate network of forty small canals and glands ( the Skene glands discovered by Dr Alexander Skene in 1880). These glands surround the urethra. The female prostate is composed of approximately three times the amount of glands and canals found in the male prostate.

This entire system is surrounded by a protective case of sensitive tissue called the urethral sponge.

Nevertheless, it was only in 1999 that official research on the female prostate was published by Dr Zaviatic from Comenius University in Bratislava:

Compared to its male equivalent, the female prostate presents similar structure and function. More precisely, it has two functions:

- an exocrine function which means the production, the storage and the expulsion of prostatic fluid, making it possible for women to ejaculate

- a neuro-endocrinal function which means the production of hormones, the only one discovered so far being serotonin

It took 327 years after the discovery of the female prostate for serious research to begin, mainly because the female prostate was for a long time considered to be a relic of the foetal state, lacking any function or purpose. In 2001, the Federative International Committee on Anatomical Terminology (FICAT)  finally made the term “female prostate” official in its journal Terminologia Histologica. Research on the matter is still ongoing.

The female prostate, urethra, and vagina are actually part of a solid structure, as indicated in the illustration shown above.

The image above is a close-up of the individual glands that make up the female prostate.


The two images show the Skene glands without the urethral sponge tissue which actually hides them from view .

Thus the female prostate surrounds the urethra in the upper vagina wall. Its dimensions are roughly 1.2 inch in length and 0.75 inch in width, 0.4 inch thick and 0.2 ounce in weight. In other words, it has the size of a hollow thumb, similar to a spongy cylinder around the urethra. Of course, female prostates come in all sizes and shapes, just like in men’s cases.

During sexual arousal, the Skene glands will fill up with liquid. At the same time, the erectile tissues of the urethral sponge become engorged with blood, and the surface therefore colored and granulated.

Therefore what Dr Graffenberg thought to have discovered in the fifties and pretentiously called the “G Spot”  (using his own initial) , does not really exist on its own. What actually protrudes through the wall of the vagina is the entire prostate, swollen and engorged with liquid. One can recognize it by feeling both its volume and its specific granulated and fluted texture. Thus, the ‘G spot’ only appears when the entire prostate has been stimulated.

This stimulation, taken to the end, will trigger an ejaculation through the urethra  and the urinary meatus. In some cases, the ejaculation can go unnoticed whereas in others, it can be a powerful gushing, able to reach more than 3.381 fl oz.

Ejaculation féminine

All women have a functional prostate gland, about the size of their thumb, that surrounds their urethra. Just like the male prostate, it produces fluid, beginning at puberty. Within the prostate gland there can be an area of increased sensitivity, more commonly referred to as the G-Spot. The G-Spot is located somewhere along the length of the urethra. When the prostate gland is stimulated, many women experience female ejaculation, and a distinctive type of orgasm, a vaginal orgasm, one that is different from that experienced during clitoral stimulation alone. Some women cum, as in ejaculate, during sexual arousal, prior to orgasm, even without G-Spot stimulation.

It appears that the optimal conditions required for a woman to trigger an ejaculation are to stimulate at the same time the clitoris, the urethra’s entrance and the prostate through the vaginal walls. This kind of orgasm can be then considered as mixed (a combination of vaginal and clitoral orgasm).

The female prostate is connected to the pelvic nerve, one of the most powerful nerves of the human body, whereas the clitoris is only linked to a less powerful nerve, the pudendal nerve. Consequently, the sensations experienced by prostate stimulation are deeply different in nature, less localized than clitoral pleasure, more diffused, and also more emotional.

The liquid produced during ejaculation is odorless, silky, a little bit oily and very clear. For some time, its existence was denied as it was thought to be urine. It is obvious now, through many different studies, that it is a completely different liquid, entirely specific in its bio-chemical components.

However it is possible to find traces of urine in it, but this only comes from a partial relaxation of the bladder during ejaculation. Indeed, it can be difficult for a woman, starting this exploration, to distinguish between her will to ejaculate from her need to urinate. It can therefore be problematic for some women to allow themselves to reach this particular pleasure, as it requires both relaxation and a specific contraction of the perineum.
