  Skene's gland   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
In human anatomy, the Skene's glands (also known as the lesser vestibular or paraurethral glands) are glands located on the upper wall of the vagina, around the lower end of the urethra.
The Skene's glands are homologous with (that is to say, the female equivalent of) the prostate gland in males.
The liquid is frequently mixed with urine that is sometimes released during the relaxation that occurs during orgasm, and with vaginal lubricating fluid.

 Female ejaculation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The glands surrounding the female urethra are variously known as the paraurethral glands, periurethral glands, Skene's glands, "female prostate", or urethral sponge, and are the spongy tissue associated with the Gräfenberg spot.
Skene's glands originally referred to only two of these glands which had openings visible at the mouth of the urethra and the others were designated paraurethral glands although the two terms are often used imprecisely to refer to all of the glands.
In addition to fluid from the paraurethral glands and urine from the bladder, fluid could be expelled from the vagina due to a sudden reduction in size due to muscle contractions.

During sexual arousal the paraurethral glands fill with fluid and may in some cases be felt through the vaginal wall; as demonstrated in the illustration at the top of the page.
I propose the discernable swelling surrounding the female urethra is caused by the accumulation of alkaline fluid in the paraurethral glands; not solely by the swelling of erectile tissue.
Stimulation of the G spot or paraurethral gland is not required for this to occur and it may occur in the absence of orgasm.
