Female Ejaculation Feels Different Than I Expected
When I teach classes about the G-spot and female ejaculation, I emphasize that it may not be something that everyone enjoys. There’s a lot of hype about female ejaculation—in porn and women’s magazines, especially—that make it seem like female ejaculation is a life-changing experience. For some people, it may be, and I encourage anyone who is interested to experiment, like you and your husband are doing. However, everyone’s body is different. Some people may find ejaculation to be an indifferent or even an unpleasant sensation, and that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re doing anything incorrectly.
As with any sexual activity, female ejaculation can improve with practice. Our first attempts at any new type of sex (oral stimulation, anal penetration, vaginal penetration, kinky play, you name it) are usually filled with a bit of fumbling and guesswork. It’s possible that as you learn more about what types of stimulation cause ejaculation and how they feel, you may find the sensation to be more intense and pleasurable. You may also find that ejaculation just doesn’t live up to the hype for you. Keep experimenting as long as it feels fun and pleasurable for you, but don’t make it a chore or an obligation. It’s OK not to like something!
Many people find that stimulating the G-spot is the easiest way to ejaculate. There are some folks who ejaculate through clitoral stimulation alone, but this seems to be less common. Strengthening your PC (pubococcygeus) muscle, which is the muscle that contracts during orgasm and also controls the flow of fluids through the urethra, can help with ejaculatory control, so if you are interested in trying to ejaculate without G-spot stimulation, I’d suggest doing PC muscle exercises. Some people find that they can “push” ejaculate out through the urethra by contracting these muscles after they become aroused.
Because ejaculate flows through the urethra, just like urine, it may feel different when you pee after ejaculating. Unless urination is difficult or painful, this isn’t anything to worry about.
