There’s no bigger sexual buzzkill than being struck with an insatiable sensation to pee when things are heating up in the bedroom. Whether your need to pee causes a sexual halt or mind control feat as you maintain your urinary floodgates until the moment your partner has climaxed, worrying that your bladder is on the verge of spraying the sheets is the absolute worst.
So, why do you feel like peeing when having sex? Is it really a feeling to pee or is it an orgasm? And, what can you do if you regularly feel like peeing during sex? Let’s find out.
We’ll start with the obvious. If you’ve spent your day consuming litres of water and haven’t bothered to visit the bathroom as often as you should have, the reason you feel the need to pee during sex could be your full bladder. If you’ve taken appropriate measures to empty your bladder pre-coitus, it all boils down to your beautiful female anatomy. You see, the vaginal cavity sits behind the bladder. During penetration, the penis can put pressure on your bladder causing you to think you need to pee. This is especially true for rear-facing positions like doggy style, or when you’re on top. So, it’s not that you actually need to go to the bathroom, it just feels that way.
If you’re unsure whether you’re coming or going when having sex, you’re not alone. Many women hold off on reaching the point of orgasm in fear that they’re about to release an unwanted golden shower. That’s because the feeling to pee is similar to the feeling of an orgasm. On top of that, female ejaculation can also be confused with urination (like our sex lives weren’t tough enough, already). Our best advice when caught in an almost sticky situation, is to wait it out a little when you feel the need to pee. Chances are you could be on the verge of a mind-blowing orgasm, and we wouldn’t want you getting in your own way of stopping that.
If you consistently feel you’re being ghosted by the golden flow during sex, spend some time alone getting to know yourself. Whether with fingers or toys, masturbation will open a world of possibility to help you grasp your body’s limits when it comes to orgasms, female ejaculation and whether the sensations you’re feeling are linked to peeing. Alternatively, mix up your sexual positions and see what works best for your body, keeping in mind that rear-facing positions are prone to put pressure on your lady parts. And, in case it needs covering, always maintain regular bathroom visits to ensure your bladder is emptied before getting frisky.
