Everything you need to know about squirting

Most of the time, people associate ejaculation with men. However, sex is a two-way street, and ejaculation isn’t just reserved for men. Women ejaculate too, and unlike men, it can happen before, during, and after the orgasm.

Nowadays, we have a bit more understanding of the sexual needs and biology of people that were born as women, but this understanding hasn’t reached enough people. So, in this article, we’re going to talk about squirting.

We’ll discuss why it happens, where the fluid comes from, how it feels, and even the debated differences between female ejaculation and squirting.

If you’re interested in exploring squirting yourself or trying it out with your partner, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to learn all there is to squirting, how to experiment with it, and some of its common myths.

What is squirting?

Squirting is what happens when people born with vulvas ejaculate during sex. This is also called female ejaculation, but not everyone with a vulva identifies as female. There is some debate that female ejaculation is completely different from squirting, but we’ll get to that later.

Simply put, squirting is when a woman excretes a fluid during sex. Sometimes, it can be strong, but other times it isn’t. There are some women that squirt all the time, some that squirt some of the time, and some that don’t squirt at all.

Where does it come from?

It’s said that the secretion that comes out of the vulva comes from the bladder and is very similar to urine.

Nowadays, there are many people familiar with squirting. This could be through pornography, popular culture, or even discovering it through exploring their own bodies. That said, there are still a lot of misconceptions and misunderstandings surrounding it, which is what we aim to debunk in this article.

There’s evidence that suggests that people have known about and have been curious about squirting for a long time. In the Kama Sutra, it’s described as “female semen” that is constantly flowing out of the woman during sex.

What causes a person to squirt?

Squirting can happen a lot during sex. But other times, it doesn’t happen at all. As mentioned earlier, there are some women that squirt and there are some that don’t. While this is a natural occurrence, it isn’t something that all women can do.

Squirting is usually caused by a large orgasm. This is because when the urethral sponge, the part of the body that secretes a lubricating fluid through the urethra, secretes the fluid, it can sometimes flow back into the bladder. And when someone experiences a large orgasm and also has a certain level of urinary incontinence, the fluid can come out.

The fluid is somewhat akin to what men call “pre-cum”. The research on this is somewhat inconclusive, but as of right now, this is what we know about squirting.

Basically, squirting occurs when the “g-spot” is stimulated. And again, some people have an orgasm after they ejaculate, but other times, they may start squirting even without an orgasm.

How does squirting feel?

Squirting can feel different for every person. There are some people that describe squirting as an orgasmic explosion that’s out of their control. For many people, the experience is very pleasurable and enjoyable. However, for some, it can also be uncomfortable and embarrassing.

Not everyone understands squirting, so it can be scary when it happens for the first time. There are reports of some women thinking that they peed themselves the first time they squirted, but that isn’t the case.

For some people, squirting feels like a regular orgasm. But for others, it can feel much deeper than a regular clitoral orgasm. Some people report feeling the need to pee before it happens, which prevents them from doing it. Other women report that they don’t feel anything while it happens, so it can vary for every person.

In the right situations, squirting can feel great. And once you have become more comfortable with it, the whole thing can be a complete game changer. But remember, not everyone can squirt, so there’s no reason to feel bad if it’s something that doesn’t happen for you.

Squirting vs female ejaculation

There’s an ongoing debate on whether or not squirting is the same thing as female ejaculation. The argument that states they aren’t the same state that the fluid excreted during female ejaculation and squirting are different.

However, both of these things can happen simultaneously, which is where a lot of the confusion comes from. The liquid that comes out when a person squirts is described as more “watery,” while the liquid that comes out during female ejaculation is a bit thicker.

Can all women squirt?

Squirting isn’t something that all women can do. Some women report squirting for the first time in their late 20s or when they are even older. Others have tried to squirt on their own and with their partner but never seem to be able to do it.

The experience can be different for every woman. And while there are some techniques that a person can try to induce squirting, it doesn’t work all the time.

With that said, squirting and orgasm are two separate concepts. So, just because a person can’t squirt doesn’t mean they can’t orgasm. On the flip, just because a woman is squirting doesn’t mean she is having an orgasm.

There are a lot of things that we don’t know about squirting. And while there has been significantly more research on women’s sex biology recently, we still have a long way to go. But as of now, we know that not all women can squirt, and the sensation can feel different for everybody.

How to explore squirting

If you want to explore squirting, it might be best to try it on your own first. This allows you to explore it on your own terms and at your own pace without any pressure. So, if you want to try it out yourself, we recommend masturbating.

Before anything, make sure to prepare the area. Remember, some women can squirt a lot, so it might be good to have some towels handy. But once the area is ready, you can begin exploring yourself.

To start, it’s best to get as relaxed as possible. Getting in the mood is different for everyone. For some people, it’s playing some music, lighting scented candles, and fixing their lighting. For others, it might be reading some erotic fiction or watching pornography. So, whatever works to get you in the mood and turned on, we recommend doing it.

Even when trying squirting alone, foreplay is important. So, try to go slow and get yourself in the right headspace before making yourself squirt.

Once you’re ready, you can either use your fingers or a g-spot stimulator to find your g-spot. There are some sex toys that stimulate both the g-spot and the clitoris at the same time, which could be what works for you. Again, the experience can be different for everyone, so don’t be afraid to experiment until you figure out what works for you.

When you start feeling something, the important thing is to keep going. Some people get apprehensive when they start feeling the sensation, as it’s sometimes described as similar to having to pee. However, if you want to try squirting, it’s best to lean into this sensation and enjoy it as much as possible.

To make it easier to lean into the sensation, you can try urinating beforehand so that you understand the sensation is sexual stimulation and not the urge to pee.

From there, you may start squirting. With that said, it may not happen on your first try. So, don’t feel bad if it doesn’t happen. In fact, some women aren’t able to squirt, and that’s completely fine.

The best thing to do is to keep trying until you find what feels good for you and what can make you squirt.

Exploring squirting with a partner

Exploring squirting with a partner can be the better approach for some women. To do this, you can take a similar approach to explore it on your own. Start by prepping the area, getting into the mood, foreplay, and then getting to the action.

If you want to try squirting, some positions may increase the chances. It’s best to get the most g-spot stimulation possible, so you may want to try out positions like doggy or other positions that give you a lot of g-spot stimulation.

And again, every person orgasms differently. So, while certain positions might increase the chances of squirting, it’s best to try out different approaches until you find one that works for you.

Tips for exploring squirting

Squirting can be a whole lot of fun. However, to ensure that it’s fun for everyone involved, there are some tips that you can follow. These include:

  • Prepping the area with towels
  • Taking your time
  • Exploring different ways to stimulate yourself
  • Understanding that not all women squirt and that’s okay
  • Expressing your needs to your partner
  • Foreplay to really get you in the mood
  • Lean into the sensations you feel
  • Peeing beforehand

Debunking common squirting myths

Squirting and orgasming are the same thing

There are a lot of myths about squirting. But one of the most prominent ones is that it’s the same as an orgasm. While these two things can happen at the same time, keep in mind that they can also happen separately, so just because a person isn’t squirting doesn’t mean they aren’t orgasming.

Squirting is a myth

Many people also believe that squirting is fake. And while yes, some of the squirting orgasms in pornography are fabricated, this is something that happens to a lot of women and can look different for everyone.

There is a trick to doing it

Additionally, many people think there’s a “special technique” that gets all women to squirt. This isn’t true. While there are some techniques that may work for some people, these are far from universal, so if you want to explore squirting, you may have to try different methods.

Not everyone can squirt and that’s normal

Squirting is a safe and natural thing that can happen to some women during sex. While it doesn’t happen to everyone, it does for a fair amount of people. There are a lot of misconceptions and confusion around squirting, but we’re trying our best to set the record straight.

So, if you’re looking to try squirting yourself, understand that it doesn’t happen for everyone. And even if you’re a person that can squirt, it may take a lot of time and trial and error before you figure out what works for you. This is why experimenting and exploring yourself is important and something that you shouldn’t be afraid to do.
