Sexual physiology has confused and confounded most people at some point. Wanting to have an orgasm, and having the courage to ask for the information you need to have one, are two big steps in the right direction. As for your question, the answer depends on a few factors, one being your sex. Men do not urinate and ejaculate at the same time. When a man is about to ejaculate, the opening to his bladder closes to prevent urine from mixing with semen. For women, things are a little more complicated.
It can happen when a female becomes sexually aroused, but there is not necessarily an association with having an orgasm. Scientists do not fully understand female ejaculation, and there is limited research on how it works and its purpose. Female ejaculation is perfectly normal, although researchers remain divided on how many people experience it. In this article, we look at the current thinking on the mechanisms, purpose, and frequency of female ejaculation. The urethra is the duct that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. Analysis has shown that the fluid contains prostatic acid phosphatase PSA. PSA is an enzyme present in male semen that helps sperm motility. In addition, female ejaculate usually contains fructose, which is a form of sugar. Fructose is also generally present in male semen where it acts as an energy source for sperm.
New research suggests that there's a chance the fluid squirted during female ejaculation could just be pee. Or as Vice, who uncovered the study, eloquently put it: "cum or piss? That's the question on everybody's lips top and bottom, ahem today, folks. A group of French scientists devoted a generous chunk of their time to thinking about female ejaculation; and attempted to get to the bottom of that age old conundrum: what the hell is it? The researchers administered pelvic ultrasound scans to seven women who had previously experienced the seemingly-but-definitely-not-mythical sensation of female ejaculation both just after they urinated, and then twice again during sexual stimulation - and the results were a little shocking: they came back reporting that the liquid was actually pee. Or in normal-person-speak: it's basically an accidental gush of wee but there are also other substances in there. But it's a tricky one. Describing the liquid as both "odourless and colourless," this doesn't really lend itself to being an overwhelming flow of piss mid-sex, does it? So basically, we're none the wiser.
Bottom line: every woman is different. In , Viennese researcher Dr Florian Wimpissinger his real name affirmed this, additionally finding that the ejaculate from two women he studied was chemically different from that of urine. In particular, it contained more prostatic acid phosphatase PAP , more prostate-specific antigen PSA , and also some glucose.
