“Female prostate” – this sounds a bit awkward at first. After all we associate this organ in medicine rather with those elongated pee breaks of elderly guys. In women this tissue also called “paraurethral glad” is located in the submucosal corpus cavernosum of the vestibulum vaginae near the entrance to the vagina. The glands mostly have several excretory ducts leading the end segments of the urethra and to the mucosa around the urinary meatus (meatus urethrae externus). The neurogeneticist Sharon Moalem has now identified this rather inconspicuous corner of the urinary tract as the motor of female sexual pleasure.
According to the Slovakian pathologist Milan Zaviacic, the female prostate has – compared to its male counterpart – an extraordinary property: The organ is different from person to person regarding size and dimension. Quite a few women have so little prostate tissue that the existence of at least this “motor of lust” is not really worth mentioning.
Those women with enough prostate material in their body can count themselves lucky! Because – according to Moalem – the ones well equipped have their prostate positioned right above the vaginal tract which enables perfect access to the G-spot.
Sexual experts argue for years now whether the G-spot exists or not. But in 2007 the Austrian urologists Florian Wimpissinger made a spectacular publication. In the Journal of Sexual Medicine Wimpissinger, who works at the Rudolphstiftung Hospital in Vienna/Austria, describes the cases of actually two patients. Both came to see him because of massive ejaculations during orgasm. In fact the Austrian succeeded in analyzing the ejaculate received by masturbation during a lab test. The high PSA content of the fluid came as a big surprise for the physicians. In addition ultrasound made prostate glands become visible. Fresh from the press came a new publication introduced by Wimpissinger and his colleagues which describes another seven cases of female ejaculation due to the prostate.
Lust organ as bacteria killer
Upon such facts, experts no longer speculate if but why women have such an organ, because contrary to men it plays no role at all in female reproduction. In addition the factor lust can be reached ultimately without the G-spot. Presumably the existence of the orgasm tissue was caused by evolution and is of purely pragmatic nature as the neurogeneticist Moalem speculates.
Moalem writes: Since women frequently have infections of their urinary tract the explosive evacuation during the orgasm could be an effective way to get rid of unwelcome germs in the urethra apropos of nothing. In order to prove this thesis, the researcher in New York now wants to check ejaculate samples regarding germ inhibiting substances such as zinc for example. Should he succeed in providing the proof – it would be a sensation. Because the “fascinating phenomenon neglected for a long time would then be a whole lot more than a sexual oddity” says Moalem.
