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!

When you’re turned on, like during masturbation, it’s common for your vagina to get really wet. This wetness comes from the Bartholin’s glands near your vaginal opening. They release fluid that lubricates your vagina (makes it wet) when you’re turned on.

During or right before orgasm, it’s also possible for a different fluid to squirt or dribble out of your vulva (this is sometimes called squirting). This fluid isn’t pee. It’s from the Skene’s glands on either side of your urethral opening. They release fluid during squirting.They’re also called paraurethral glands or female prostate glands.

Ejaculation (squirting) from your vulva is less common than ejaculation from a penis  — either is totally normal. 

If you’re not feeling wet enough during masturbation, you can also use lube to make yourself more comfortable and experience more pleasure.
