Pre-ejaculate on the glans of a human penis

*Pre-ejaculate* (also known as *pre-ejaculatory fluid*, *preseminal fluid*,
or *Cowper's fluid*, and colloquially as *pre-cum*) is the clear,
colorless, viscous fluid that is emitted from the urethra of the human
penis during sexual arousal. It is similar in composition to semen but has
some significant chemical differences. The presence of sperm in the fluid
is debated. Research has found no or low levels of sperm in pre-ejaculate,
though these existing studies are non-generalizable due to examining small
numbers of men.^[1]^[2]^[3]^[4] A contrary, yet non-generalizable study
that found mixed evidence, including individual cases of a high sperm
concentration, was published in March 2011.^[5] Pre-ejaculate is believed
to function as a lubricant and an acid neutralizer. The amount of
pre-ejaculate emitted varies widely between individuals; some men emit
none.

*Origin and composition[edit]*

The fluid is discharged during arousal, masturbation, foreplay or at an
early stage during sex, some time before the man fully reaches orgasm and
semen is ejaculated. It is primarily produced by the bulbourethral glands
(Cowper's glands), with the glands of Littre (the mucus-secreting urethral
glands) also contributing.^[6]

The amount of fluid that the human male issues varies widely among
individuals. Some men do not produce any pre-ejaculate fluid,^[7] while
others emit as much as 5 ml.^[2]^[6]
