Someone asked us: A few times, I've peed during masturbation. I'm fairly sure it was during the orgasm (female). Is it coital incontinence? It wasn't much pee, but it's happened a few times. Thanks!

Ejaculation or “squirting” from your vulva area when you’re turned on or having sex (with yourself or others) is totally normal. There are a few different fluids that can come out of your vagina and urethra when you orgasm. Let’s get into it: 

When you’re turned on, your vagina usually gets wet. This wetness comes from the Bartholin’s glands, which are near your vaginal opening. 

During or right before you orgasm, a fluid that’s clear or whitish in color with a mucus-like consistency may come out of your vulva from your vagina. This fluid isn’t pee. It’s from the Skene’s glands, which are located on either side of your urethral opening. 

It’s also possible for another fluid to come out of your vulva during orgasm. But it would come from your urethra (the hole where pee comes out). The liquid is clear, and while it’s still being researched, it’s most often a combination of any fluid that’s leftover from your bladder and/or Skene’s glands.  (this is sometimes called squirting).

Either way, if you’re feeling good when you masturbate, that’s great! And remember, you can always talk to the staff at your nearest Planned Parenthood health center — they’ve heard it all.
