|Title:||Orgasmic Gushing: where does the fluid come from and how is it produced?||Contributor(s):||O'Brien, GM (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/854||Abstract:||There are three sexual fluids from women: lubrication (e.g. transudation of fluid across the mucosa of the vagina, and mucus from the greater vestibular glands); female ejaculation (from paraurethral glands); and gushing. Orthodox western medicine and physiology does not yet have a standardized description or explanation for the third, gushing. The present paper proposes that the gushing fluid is a filtrate of plasma, produced by the mechanism known as transudation. This is an additional application for the transudation mechanism, after the well accepted roles in lubrication of the vagina, and in generating serous fluids. The present model proposes that the fluid released in a gush arises from the ventral wall of the vagina due to the presence there of increased surface area of mucosa, dilated arterioles, pressurized venous and lymphatic plexuses, and compression provided by muscle contraction during orgasm.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Women in Research (WiR) 2005 Conference, Gladstone, Australia, 24-25 November, 2005||Conference Details:||Women in Research (WiR) 2005 Conference, Gladstone, Australia, 24-25 November, 2005||Source of Publication:||Women in Research (WiR) 2005 Conference Proceedings, p. 1-15||Publisher:||Women in Research (WiR)||Place of Publication:||Central Queensland University||Field of Research (FOR):||111603 Systems Physiology||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://wir.cqu.edu.au/FCWViewer/view.do?page=3553
