Women do not produce pre-ejaculate fluid the same as men do. Pre-ejaculate fluid in men is produced by the bulbourethral (Cowper’s) glands. Its primary function is to neutralize the residual acidity in the urethra caused by the urine, thus creating a more favorable environment for the spermatozoids.

The fluid that is produced in women is used for lubrication. It does not contain the same substances, nor does it have the same role, as the pre-ejaculation fluid in men. Therefore, it cannot be called women’s pre-ejaculate.
