As a sexologist whose expertise includes both the uses of media to portray human sexuality and the controversy regarding the so-called“G-Spot” (female prostate) and female ejaculation, a new film on these subjects is always of paramount interest to me. There are over 20 films about the g-spot and female ejaculation and Liquid Love: The G-Spot Explosion is one of the best, if not the finest. It is educational and informative and, at the same time, highly entertaining and a wonderful example of how good cinematic techniques can help in educating audiences about human sexuality.
There is so much I loved about this film that it is difficult to know where to start. The film is richly photographed with brilliant use of light, colors and music. The scenes interviewing the sexuality experts and the female ejaculators are very effectively interspersed among highly sensual scenes that illustrate the information. Most educational sexuality films unimaginatively offer far more information than entertainment. They are often so boring that the audience doesn’t fully receive the information in a way that can meaningfully impact their sexual patterns. The clever presentation and entertainment values of Liquid Love: The G-Spot Explosion enhances the ease with which the material can be received. As I discussed in my article, A Critic’s View of Adult Films, filming human sexuality is much closer to filming dance than documentary. Therefore, I was not surprised to find out that the background of co-director Godfrey Silas had been in dance and that he had also been a fashion photographer.
Leila Swan (given screen credit as co-director and producer) appears in the film, and she is a fresh new face reminiscent of the first time that I saw Nina Hartley or Julie Ashton on the screen. She is well spoken, very photogenic, and her inherent sensuality comes through in scenes with the other women and adds greatly to the information presented by the “sexperts.” Adult film star, Annie Body, also appears in the film and her energy and enthusiasm add to Liquid Love. Like Juliet (Aunt Peg) Anderson and Annie Sprinkle before her, it is refreshing to see an adult film star who does not fit the porn mold and who is able to connect to an audience with her personality.
As the “sexperts,” Dr. Carol Queen and Deborah Sundahl are very clear in explaining that the G-Spot is the female prostate. Misunderstandings about what the “G-Spot” is has been a major and sometime fatal flaw in many of the earlier films about the G-Spot and female ejaculation. The only criticism that I might have of Liquid Love: The G-Spot Explosion is that it does not discuss the difference in women who ejaculate between the “squirters” and “gushers.” Since the film shows only “gushers,” it leaves the impression that all women will be able to expel a large volume of fluid while, in fact, my experience is that most women ejaculate only a smalll amount of fluid from their female prostate (G-Spot) through the urethra. This omission does not take away from the exceptional quality and value of this film but I would love to see the subject addressed in future films.
I do consider Liquid Love: The G-Spot Explosion to be the finest G-Spot and female ejaculation film ever made. It is so refreshing and beautifully made that I eagerly look forward to future offerings from Godfrey Silas.
Quotes about Liquid Love:
“This is one of the best films on the G Spot and female ejaculation that we’ve seen in a long time. Female sexuality is fast becoming the topic of interest with researchers, filmmakers and the public alike. Both scientifically and erotically, this film delivers the goods on the most mysterious yet inspiring aspects of a woman’s sexuality.
The sexuality experts in Liquid Love are Deborah Sundahl and Dr. Carol Queen along with Leila Swan and the other bold participants. Complete with expert analysis, this film weaves a rich tapestry of eroticism, intellect and explosive orgasms. Scenes include soft, erotic how-to’s demonstrated by very embodied women.
Liquid Love is soft, natural and all about and for women. The chapters float between great commentary in one section and then a long experiential section so that you can learn and understand more about the G Spot and female ejaculation and then simply witness it without the words and instruction. Very effective because of the juxtaposition of learning on one hand and ‘being’ on the other. A great film!”
“Liquid Love is a sweet, sensual, and very sexy portrayal of female ejaculation and the women who love to do it. Great sex information from experts Carol (Queen) and Debbie (Sundahl) and excellent production values make this film an all out winner. Fine sex-ed plus erotica from the heart and clit.”

“This exceptionally produced film presents information about female ejaculation, a normal variation in female sexual response that every woman and her partner should know about.”
