Why Do I Pee During Masturbation?

Dear Reverend,

Why do I keep peeing during masturbation if I went pee beforehand?

Moist Muff (female, 18)

Dear Moist Muff, 

Although I'm almost certain what you're describing is female ejaculation, I do wish I could ask you some questions. Is it a lot of fluid? A little? Does it only happen when you have an orgasm? Is it every time? How about when you have sex with another person (assuming you do)? I suppose I'm just curious, because your answers — whatever they may be — are all perfectly natural.

Often referred to as "squirting," female ejaculation is much more common than you might think. According to the International Society for Sexual Medicine, it's estimated that 10 to 50 percent of women experience it at least occasionally. The amount of fluid released can be anywhere from a few drops to more than half a cup. Some women don't even realize it's happening, while others feel the need to break out the towels for sexy time.

As with many things related to women's bodies, female ejaculation isn't all that well understood. It seems no one is 100 percent sure what the fluid is or where it comes from. What I've gathered from online sleuthing is that it's widely thought to be a combination of urine and another fluid containing an enzyme called a prostate-specific antigen produced in a woman's Skene's gland.

Although there isn't total agreement on the specifics of female ejaculation, one thing is for sure: The porn industry has made quite a big deal of it. A quick search for "squirt" on pornhub.com yields more than 200,000 results. I hate to golden-shower on anyone's parade, but much of the dramatic gushing in porn videos is faked. Your situation, however, is completely real and normal — and nothing to feel weird or embarrassed about.

Good luck and God bless,

The Reverend
