Zone G and fountain emissions

Briclit Fontaine

      Would there exist in people with a vulva a kind of little magic button that would trigger orgasm (the famous "G-spot")? If it exists, is it responsible for squirting or a singular type of orgasm? For a long time, these questions have been the subject of controversy, which still leaves too many doubts to establish a solid knowledge. But, the scientists are hard at work, so here are some things to get your bearings.

Biologically speaking, the body of people with a vulva is made in a way that makes orgasm and squirting possible, but no scientific study can identify a little anatomical extra that would cause them automatically. . To date, there is therefore no "point G" .

However, the experiences of those affected show that stimulation of an area inside the vagina causes fountain emissions. Rather than an anatomical point, scientists suggest that there would be a zone of feelings: the "G zone". This area is a bit domed and rough. It is located inside the vagina, at the top just after the entrance (which corresponds to the crotch of the Clit in the drawing).

With the  Scienticlit, we have seen that the clitoris is positioned astride the vagina and the urethra (duct to pee). What we haven't seen yet is that it also affects the bladder and Skène's gland (equivalent to the prostate). Zone G would correspond to the junction of all these organs. Thus, a probable scientific hypothesis consists in thinking that by stimulating the clitoris at this precise location, a reaction is provoked in the other organs which touch it and that this interaction would promote fountain emissions.

Following this lead, scientists have conducted studies. At present, many questions remain unanswered but it is possible to retain three things from recent studies.

The first is that fountain emissions are not necessarily synonymous with orgasm : it is possible to squirt at the same time as an orgasm, to have orgasms without squirting or to squirting without feeling intense pleasure. The phenomenon seems mechanical and should not constitute an ultimate goal of fulfillment in your sexuality.

The second thing concerns the key role of the bladder in the phenomenon. We do not really know where the liquid comes from, but we know that it passes through the bladder before being expelled in large quantities through the urethra (about 200ml) and that it can come out in two ways: by emissions dripping (ripples) or in jets.

Third, scientists agree on the composition of the liquid. It would be a very very dilute, colorless and odorless urine (although this can vary depending on the water drunk during the day and if we peed just before).

This knowledge is brought to be clarified and still leaves many mysteries. It is still difficult to know how the liquid is produced and what it is used for exactly. Scientists also suspect that it is not expelled through the urethra but through small channels located on both sides. some scientists believe that fountain emissions are not the only types of secretions that can be expelled. Case to follow!
