It doesn’t usually happen, but every now and then when I experience a really intense orgasm, I release a clear, nearly odorless liquid, there is a lot of it. Is it urine? I can’t get myself to ask anyone about it in person, but could I have a problem?

This is totally normal — it’s called female ejaculation. About 10 percent of women sometimes spurt a clear fluid from the urethra during intense sexual excitement or during orgasm. This fluid is very similar to the fluid produced by the prostate gland in men — it isn’t urine. The “prostatic” fluid in women is secreted by the Skene’s glands, which are located in the vulva near the opening of the urethra. These glands, though much smaller than the male prostate, are similar enough in function that some scientists have renamed them “female prostate” glands. Other glands may also be involved in female ejaculation.
