Has Science Proven That Women Have Their Own Version of a Prostate?

 

Perhaps you’ve heard the news, scientists researching the phenomenon of female ejaculation have figured out that women have a prostate gland.

Well… not actually a prostate gland. What they’ve discovered is that we do have a gland that is very similar to the prostate, the Skenes gland.

I’ve done some research to find out more, and this is what I have learned.

The Skenes glands were named after Alexander Skene, the physician who first discovered them.

Some scientists call them the paraurethral glands because they are located in the vagina on the upper wall near the g-spot.

This entire area is called the urethral sponge because of the way stimulation causes it to swell with blood, much the same way that a male’s penis becomes erect. 

In much the same way that the penis is used to urinate and ejaculate, these glands empty their milky fluid into the urethra.

During orgasm, particularly when the g-spot has been stimulated, these glands can produce a milky fluid that is expelled through the urethra.

This has been identified as one of the two ways that women can experience female ejaculation.

Some differentiate between the two, this method called ejaculation and the other squirting, but that’s as far as my interest goes.
