FEMALE SEXUAL MYTHS: ‘WOMEN DO NOT MASTURBATE NOR DO THEY GET NOCTURNAL ORGASMS’ AND ‘WOMEN ALSO EJACULATE’
WOMEN DO NOT MASTURBATE NOR DO THEY GET NOCTURNAL ORGASMS: Whilst boys are prone to masturbate in company and compare notes with each other, girls are much more reticent about it. Masturbation is not as common in girls as in boys but as they get enlightened about sex, a number of them are resorting to it. The same applies to nocturnal orgasms in the female; they are not as frequent as in males.
WOMEN ALSO EJACULATE: The ancient authorities on the science of love, Audalaki and Vatsyayana, have a very ingenious explanation about the sexual desire in a woman. Audalaki states that there are countless parasites in the vagina of women causing an itching sensation. During coitus, the rhythmic penile friction is supposed to relieve the itching. Vatsyayana disagrees with the theory of 'relief of itching'. He rightly argues that the female is comparatively tranquil initially during coitus and is aroused more and more as the intercourse progresses. She desires to disengage after she has reached an orgasm and emits the seminal fluid. The ancients had mistaken the normal vaginal lubrication and mucus from the Bartholin's glands for seminal fluid. The myth persists. Some women still use the word ejaculation for an orgasm, and males still delight in fixing the 'itching' of their partners—a term often used after a satisfactory sexual encounter. To conclude, unlike men, women do not ejaculate after their orgasm.
