Female Ejaculation Is Not UrinationOctober 9, 2009 4 Comments
Apparently the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) thinks it is an expert on sexuality based on it’s claim that female ejaculation is the same as urination.
This is NOT true! Women are able to ejaculate and it is not the same as urination.
The BBFC has approved the first ever porn film with female ejaculation in it, in spite of the fact that “urination ‘in a sexual context’ is illegal according to UK obscenity law”.
There are two problems here: urination in a sexual context being illegal, and the BBFC claiming to be an expert on sexuality.
First of all, urine is a perfectly clean fluid and causes no harm. If people want to pee on each other that is their prerogative. So long as it is between two consenting adults the law has no right to intervene, no matter how kinky or weird something might be perceived to be. Consent is the issue, and there are already laws to protect people from abuse.
Secondly, the BBFC knows nothing about sexual function. Women can ejaculate and there are references to this as far back as ancient India in the Kama Sutra. However, many women might mistake this for urination because the glands that produce the fluid are arranged such that the fluid comes out of the body through the urethra. Porn films often do use urination because they want gushing amounts of fluid and this is usually not how ejaculation works, thus, urination has a better visual appeal for the movies. Not all women can or want to ejaculate, but it’s existence is real and many women enjoy the feeling. Check out this Wikipedia entry explaining how it works for more detail.
So to the BBFC and the government in general I say stay out of the bedroom. So long as sexual acts are between consenting adults you have no right to interfere. And consult your experts before making decisions because not only does making claims like this perpetuate myths, but it makes you appear ignorant, unprofessional, and unqualified for the job at hand.
