When aroused, some women may experience squirting, or a rather noticeable discharge of fluid. What it is exactly and where it comes from has been hotly debated: female ejaculation or adult bedwetting? Researchers are now saying that squirting is essentially involuntary urination.

What the Hell are we supposed to Do with that little piece of information?
Tell her to, "Stop That!" ? That seems a little harsh, to me.

Eh, the presence of PSA means it's still distinct from just urination; it's just not as different from urination as we'd thought.

Of course, the whole scientific study of this is really young so it makes sense that it's going to get things quite wrong but it's always getting less wrong.

The discussion of the article distinguishes between incontinence during penetration and incontinence during orgasm and some studies have shown that the bladder muscle undergoes waves of contraction during orgasm.

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jsm.12799/full
Spoiler:
The observation that most of the participants had detectable PSA concentrations in the squirting fluid (S) may be explained by the fact that their prostate had been mechanically stimulated during sexual activity. This suggests a marginal contribution of the female prostate secretions to the nature of the abundant fluid expulsion. Whether the type or intensity of local stimulation is related or not to PSA levels deserves to be clarified in additional studies. Moreover, the observation that one of the participants showed sizable PSA concentrations in BSU remains unclear. The present study is not contributive to elucidate whether it was the result of a spontaneous prostatic contamination of the urine by an unexplained PSA hypersecretion or any mechanical prostatic stimulation occurred before the experiment.

Coital urinary incontinence has been described under two distinct forms: first, the incontinence occurring during penetration and, second, the incontinence that occurs during orgasm [19,20]. Given that the participants in our study did not report fluid emission during penetration, the cases of squirting observed may be assimilated to a form of orgasmic urinary incontinence. Indeed, Khan et al. have shown that, in women suffering from detrusor overactivity, orgasm triggers bladder contractions and sometimes sphincter relaxation [21]. Incidentally, detrusor overactivity has been observed in up to 69% of women reporting orgasmic urinary incontinence [20] Moreover, other investigators failed to demonstrate that women reporting female ejaculation/squirting had functional bladder abnormalities such as detrusor overactivity [22]. Yet, cases of urinary emission during orgasm in women suffering from stress urinary incontinence have been also reported, but they probably implicate a different mechanism [18]. Unfortunately, in the present study, participants did not undergo prior urodynamics examination. Yet, to compensate for this limitation, during the questionnaire detailing their medical history, they were asked for urinary abnormalities (either stress or coital incontinency) to confirm the absence of this exclusion criterion.

It is also noteworthy that squirting often results from the combination of direct mechanical stimulation of the anterior vaginal wall (around the so-called G-spot) and a facilitating emotional status, with extreme confidence and relaxation. This indicates that some sexual practices may foster the occurrence of massive urinary emission in absence of any pathological condition.

Fox news strikes again (he has since apologised, but one wonders what on earth moved him to to make such a statement in the first place).

An American terrorism commentator has apologised for describing Birmingham as a "Muslim-only city" where non-Muslims "don't go" during a Fox News interview.

Steven Emerson told the channel that in London "Muslim religious police" beat "anyone who doesn't dress according to Muslim, religious Muslim attire".

His apology suggested that someone else passed the "information" on to him and he repeated it without checking it. I wonder if someone was having fun with him.

Yes. The fact that you seem to have been unaware of this also makes you a secret Muslim, secret even to yourself. But if you were only passing through, you're just a casual secret Muslim. Sorry. Terrible joke.

I stared at that story for a minute or two, utterly convinced that no one could actually be so stupid. But the Fox news facts harsh was good for a few laughs at least.

I feel like any intentional lies should be at least *slightly* more plausible. Because that one isn't very good at all.

To be fair, it is factually correct that everyone living in Birmingham is a Muslim, and that non-Muslims don't go there, for at least one Birmingham.

The saying is "a lie can get around the world before the truth can get his trousers on". I wonder how true that is these days, the hashtag trending on Twitter mocking Fox News must surely have reached more people faster than Fox News could.

Idk what my stance on Sharia courts are. I mean yeah, if two people would rather have a cleric decide rulings for civil cases instead of a judge, fine, they agreed to it and it reduces the clog in the courts. But my understanding is that with the Halachic courts in NYC, the families put immense pressure on the people to use those courts, disowning anyone who goes to the secular courts. It's a big nono to even report criminal activity in the Hasidic community, going to the courts which are often shams in the first place. It's nasty. So I don't know if we should even allow it at all.

Civil vs criminal is an important distinction here. If two people wish to settle a non-criminal dispute by going to arbitration, or flipping a coin, or whatever, I don't much care. But criminal matters are very different. My understanding is that, usually, the discussion for various "courts" are civil only, and that there is no choice of criminal justice system.

Yeah but they refuse to go to any secular courts at all. They are so used to going to the rabbis for handling every matter that many aren't even aware that there is such a thing as secular courts.

Well, that's not quite true, they know they exist but are convinced that there is a rule that says "Jew = GUILTY!".

That seems...slightly overblown from my experience. Granted, I don't usually hang out with the super-hardcore religious sorts of any particular flavor, but I've known some who were reasonably religious, and I've not heard any such steriotype.

And distrust for law certainly exists even in those who do not have private civil courts, so I'm not sure that there's much of a causal link here.

Yes. The poor white people in the US are terrified of The System and its Agents.

Gee. I don't know anything about those Jewish guys, either.
I do know about Jewish Stereotypes.

If they need the Secular Court, they might know a Rabbi that knows a Rabbi that knows an Attorney
that can write a letter of referral to The Best of The Darned Good. They might turn to a Lutheran.

Huh I thought Nigel Farage was the anti-Euro guy. When did he go full anti-islam?


He's a UK nationalist. He's anti Europe and anti Islam. Always has been.

That guy should be with his own.
They need him as a lobby person...in ..the US ...Congress....

Dang!! That is what he is doing!!
FOX reaches into the minds of millions of Americans.
And; They Vote. They e-mail, call and write to their representatives.

He Lobbies in a very efficient way.
The National Broadcast System is an International Broadcast System.

He who controls the broadcasts Rules The World!
All Hale Ruthless and his Entourage.

On some levels, that is funny stuff.
As long as they don't form effective lynch mobs.

Once a lynch mob has formed, it's no longer fun and games.

That man may never raise his hand against our brother.
He and the FOX Team get very close to 'giving the order'.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.

Supreme Court finally going to hear the case on whether same-sex marriage bans are unconstitutional.

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/arc ... ge/384610/

Either this is going to completely strike down gay marriage bans, or it will overturn rulings at the state level that made same-sex marriage legal in so many states. If same-sex marriage bans are ruled unconstitutional, religious leaders warn that America will be reduced to a smoldering crater after fire and brimstone rains down from the sky, like we saw with Canada a few years back, and that the survivors will resort to having sex with ducks.
Honesty replaced by greed, they gave us the reason to fight and bleed
They try to torch our faith and hope, spit at our presence and detest our goals
