Here’s why you feel like peeing during sex

Ladies, have you felt like peeing (or urinating) during the good deed? Is this normal? What should you do?

Clap twice if you have ever felt the urge to pee during sex. It may be that you paused sex to rush to the bathroom or you ignored it and kept going. Either way, feeling like you want to pee during sex is actually quite common for people with vaginas. Penis owners have a natural mechanism to deal with this issue.

3 reasons you feel like peeing during sex

1. Pressure on your bladder

Your vagina and bladder are located quite close thus sex can put pressure on your bladder making you feel like you want to pee. In some cases, the urge to pee is brought about by internal stimulation from penetration.

2. Certain sex positions

Some sex positions e.g. doggy style or girl on top may make some women have the urge to pee. The type of friction from these positions can sometimes confuse the sensations that are going on down there, making you feel like you’re going to pee.

3. Orgasm and female ejaculation

The urge to pee might just be because you are about to experience female ejaculation which can feel a lot like peeing. Also, when women are about to orgasm, they may get this feeling too. It is important for women to differentiate between the sensation of having an orgasm and the urge to pee.
