Female ejaculation has a history as old as the earth itself. Hippocrates
and Aristotle spoke of the divine waters in some of their writings. In 10th
century India, it was spoken about as a ''wine-like-juice.” In most cases,
it was thought to be an important part of conception and regarded in a
popular light. Please see the following link for more info on the history
of female ejaculation.
In Chinese, Japanese, Native American and even Celtic historical
documents, female ejaculation is discussed and considered to be part of
a sacred sexual event.
Fast forward to 1800s Puritanical America and we see an uptight group
of people who do not know female sexuality and of course, care little for
the woman's feelings or pleasure. Often, a midwife would come into
town and “relieve” a woman of her sexual issues. After all, a good
woman would not want sex frequently, much less spray the inside of the
bedroom with “urine” or whatever they thought it was. The midwife
would often use a steam powered vibrator to give the woman an orgasm,
then sending her home relieved and back to being a “good pure wife.”
Hysteria had been considered a disease and condition for centuries,
which of course led to many attempts at curing the problem.
The poor woman’s genitals were stimulated to orgasm by the midwife at
the ‘doctor’s office’ or sometimes the doctor himself would do the honor.
The couple would happily return to their daily lives thanking the doctor
for relieving her of the ‘disease’. Sometimes the husband himself would
relieve her of the ‘disease’ unwittingly if he also feels horny. Their
peaceful household would continue till she gets aroused again. During
the period of Industrial Revolution, towards the end of 1800’s, steam
driven vibrators were discovered and this relieved the midwives from
their weird job of helping women masturbate. Indeed the doctors of
those times used several tactics and methods to bring a woman to
orgasm in their treatment for ‘hysterical tension’. All these contraptions
existed because nobody cared about female orgasm and ejaculation, and
the mere existence of female orgasm was totally unaware of.
In the 1980s, the medical community and researchers began looking
deeper into the female ejaculation issue. Looking back, some fine
researchers were: Grafenberg, 1950; Sevely & Bennet, 1978; Belzer et
al., 1981; Perry & Whipple, 1981; Addiego et al., 1981; Sensabaugh &
Kahane, 1982; Belzer et al., 1984; Zaviavic et al, 1984.
In 1980, a video was shown at SSSS (Society for the Scientific Study of
Sex) by researchers Perry and Whipple. During an open discussion on
the topic, a Dr. Martin Weisberg, M.D. and gynecologist commented
that he had been performing procedures on women to correct genital
problems and that there was no such thing as female ejaculation or
glands to trigger it. He changed his mind when he saw the video....
“The vagina and associated parts were looking normal with no mass or
spots. The urethra appears normal. All associated structures appear
normal. Her partner then stimulated her genital organs by inserting two
fingers into her vagina and then started to stroke her urethra vertically.
Surprisingly the area around her urethra started to swell and appeared
like a swelling of one by two centimeters dimension distinctly visible by
inspection. In the next few moments she did a maneuver by holding her
breath and appeared like she is bearing down. In a few seconds
afterwards several ml of whitish liquid appeared out of the urethra like
it has been released from pressure. The composition of that fluid closely
resembles that of prostatic fluid of men as pointed out by Perry and
Whipple. The fluid is sometimes clear and in other times milky and as
thin as plain water. There is no associated urine like color, taste or
smell. It was actually odorless and the taste varies from time to time and
from women to women depending on their food habits, extent of arousal,
time of prior ejaculation, etc. The taste actually varies from sweet (like
honey), bitter, sour or a blend of all these.”
I shutter to think of the women who were butchered to cure a problem
that was a natural occurrence. It's hard to believe the medical
community was still in the dark about this just a mere 30 some years
ago. For centuries, women had no place to turn to in regards to this
matter. They had no one to talk to and no resources to teach them about
their bodies. Many were mocked and ridiculed and shamed. Many
thought they had peed themselves and were shamed for it. Only now,
can women have a voice and a place to turn to understand this beautiful
Very informative writing, peppered with scientific support on an important topic with little open dialogue. Prejudice against women unfortunately has a long history. Articles like this can correct the prejudice.
