SexEdNotes ~ Orgasm
ORGASM (Also called SEXUAL CLIMAX)
In The Male:
In The Female:
This is experienced by women of all ages, and boys before Puberty. After Puberty begins, boys experience the same thing, but because Puberty is defined by their ability to Ejaculate, it is known as a Wet Dream. The Orgasm is often caused by a sexually stimulating dream, and it has been suggested that it occurs to release built-up sexual tension. It is experienced by more than 80 percent of both sexes and all ages. There is no known method to increase or decrease the frequency of this occurring. Sorry.
In The Male:
Ejaculation is the release of Semen and Sperm. To be clear, 'E - jack - u - late' is the action, and 'E - jack - u - lut' is the fluid that is ejaculated. Same spelling, different pronunciation. The first time it happens is after Puberty starts, usually between the ages of 11 and 15 years. The first time may happen when Nocturnal Emission occurs during sleep.
Ejaculation usually occurs through an erect Penis, but the erection is not always necessary. Ejaculate passes through the Urethra, the same tube in the Penis that carries Urine. The Bladder is closed off to the Urethra by the Prostate Gland and the muscles in the neck of the Bladder. This prevents the Urine from exiting during Coitus (Sexual Intercourse). The amount of Ejaculate averages about 5 ml or one teaspoon.
Ejaculate contains Sperm and Semen.
In The Female:
Most people would say that there is no way a woman can Ejaculate.... that is what men do. However, it is true that some women actually do emit Ejaculate. However it is not the same as what a male will Ejaculate. It occurs at the same time, concurrent with an Orgasm, and may actually go unnoticed by many.
This fluid that is Ejaculated has been tested and determined that it is NOT Urine, not Semen, not Sperm and not Vaginal Fluid. Women have Bartholin's Glands that are on either side of the Vagina, imbedded in the inner surface of the Inner Labia, for the purpose of lubricating the entry of the Penis into the Vagina. That fluid can be of a copious amount at times, and cause what is referred to as a "wet spot" on the bed under their pelvis during sexual activity, but that is not the fluid that is Ejaculated either.
The Ejaculate does, however, have a similar make-up of Prostatic Fluids. We do not think of a woman having a Prostate Gland, so that seems illogical, but something ejects the fluid, at times with enough force to project from the Vulvar area. That would almost require a gland similar to a Prostate Gland or something very similar to it.
Something to consider is that some women have what has been referred to as a "G-Spot". If it exists, and not all women have it, it can be reached a finger's length into the Vagina, on the upper wall. If a man had a vagina, this is the location of the Prostate Gland.
Medical science seems to enjoy arguing what is happening here, but suffice it to say, some women enjoy a deep orgasm when stimulated in the area indicated and they can produce a rather copious amount of fluid during the orgasm. It is believed that the fluid exits small openings just above or surrounding the Urinary Meatus (opening), which are called Skene's Ducts.
Because some women have a G-Spot and Skene's Glands and ejaculate while some do not, one thought is that because men's and women's bodies are so similar and only slightly differentiated... i. e. Penis/Clitoris, Testis/Ovary, Scrotum/Labia, etc., and because we all know some women that are very masculine and some men that are very feminine, it is not too much of a stretch to assume that a woman can have a bit of tissue that reacts as a Prostate Gland.
When a fetus develops, until it reaches the eighth week of gestation in its development, physical examination cannot determine if it is male or female. A DNA test will tell, but on visual inspection there is a growth between the legs that will look exactly the same whether it is male or female. As the fetus matures, that pelvic growth will mature into a Clitoris... or a Penis. Some women will have a Clitoris five times the length of others, and some men will have a Penis one-fifth as long as others... men and women are closer to being the same physically then we may realize.
