CAKE present The Lowdown on female ejaculation


Preview: Jack Foley

WANT to learn more about female ejaculation and the G-spot? If the answer is yes, then get yourself down to the Townhouse, in Beauchamp Place, London, on Wednesday, May 14, for the latest slice of sexy fun, CAKE-style.

Finding out about female ejaculation in the UK is tough at the best of times, but CAKE has announced an evening of fun (for women) that should straighten things out!

Should you decide that the phenomenon has to be seen to be believed, you may be pretty upset to hear that the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) censors it.

In what CAKE describes as a clear example of discrimination, the censors flatly refuse to consider any films for R18 rating that show female ejaculation.

As far as they are concerned, it doesn’t exist, so any women doing it on film are urinating - end of discussion. When a UK documentary was made to try and shed some light on the topic, they banned that too.

Thankfully, Feminists Against Censorship (FAC) have challenged the BBFC to justify their stance on female ejaculation and note that:

"Ejaculation is not qualified by gender, hence it would seem reasonable to assume that [the Board] would permit female as well as male ejaculation. However, this is not the case. [In a previous ruling] The Board reasoned that the film did not show female ejaculation because, according to the 'expert medical advice' received by the Board, female ejaculation does not exist." (Louise Achille and Catherine Wilkinson, FAC).

According to CAKE's leading sexperts, the decision by the board is in clear contradiction with scientific research, as well as personal experience.

And judging from the experiences of CAKE.Girls in the UK — there is no denying that female ejaculation exists!

As one CAKE.Girl in the UK noted, 'the first time I had an orgasm was by myself with a vibrator and the result was a shooting stream of liquid'.

However, back to the subject at hand, and findings which suggest that some researchers deny that female ejaculation exists, while others are unconvinced and see it as being akin to urinary incontinence; others still believe it exists but are uncertain of its cause.

For those women who have experienced ejaculation, and for a lucky few who have learned to do it regularly, being told it doesn’t exist is hardly inspiring!

According to CAKE: "The way society views the female bodily fluids and their release during sexual stimulation can have long lasting implications for female sexuality and sexual pleasure.

"Some women who are worried about the lack of control they have over the release of fluids such as vaginal lubrication, ejaculation or sweat, have been known to avoid sex altogether rather than risk feeling embarrassment in front of their partner."

As a result, CAKE believes that a more open debate is required on the issue, and more research needs to be done.

"The last thing we need is for the issue of female ejaculation to be brushed aside, ignored, belittled or banned," it maintains.

Given that CAKE is about sharing knowledge, and prompting change, the organisation wants to know more.

"We want to get people talking about it and sharing their experiences, good or bad, so we can all benefit. So get in touch and tell us what you think!"

In order to do so, why not visit the CAKE website and become a UK member, where details of The Lowdown event and membership passes can also be obtained.

NB. The event is strictly for women only.
