I believe I gave my female partner an orgasm by finger penetration, which is normal I guess. But I realized after that there was a discharge of a brown liquid on my hand. What is it? Is it normal?

This is the kind of question that raises even more questions. For example, the most immediate questions is what do we mean by "normal." Is it the same as "average" or the same as "typical"? My position is that if a woman reaches orgasm when her lover blows in her ear, then it is "normal" for her. It is not "average" and it is not "typical," but it is normal for her. If there was finger penetration, was it directly into the vaginal barrel and an orgasm occurred, it would be normal for this woman, but it is not "typical" among all women. If the digital stimulation was more of a curling motion along the top surface and behind the woman's pubic bone (as she lay on her back), it is possible that the area known as the G Spot was being stimulated, and then it would be normal, but still not typical although a bit more common.

How did this mysterious brown liquid get into your hand? Did it spurt out, run out, or ooze out. Some women (not the average woman) normally expel a fluid when they orgasm, and it comes from their urethral opening with a significant amount of force... but it is clear, watery, odorless and tasteless.

A woman's vaginal lubricant, of course, typically oozes out of her vaginal opening, but it also is colorless and much thicker and slipperier than the "female ejaculate."

So, what of this mysterious brown fluid? Beats me, but I would tend to worry about any vaginal discharge that has significant coloration.
