Last week we asked readers to vote on a post they wanted me to write. The winner was 6 Myths About Squirting. Here it is!
Female ejaculation has been called the “one of the most hotly debated questions in modern sexology” because no one has been able to crack the code about how or why it happens. We can agree that squirting is the expulsion of fluid through and around the urethra during or before an orgasm. For most women, it’s the unicorn of sexual experiences, meaning we have only dreamed of meeting it face to face. This explains why there are so many urban legends about a friend of a friend of a cousin who could do it on command every time. And you’re like, “Gee thanks, that really helps me understand this thing.” It may be a while before we have definitive answers, but in the meantime we can break down some of the existing myths about squirting.

- 2. That everyone woman is capable of doing it, they just have to learn.
- 3. That “squirting” and “gushing” are the same thing as female ejaculation.

1. That it’s pee.
Many experts believe that what comes out when a woman is ejaculating is urine. Women who squirt will tell you otherwise. Some have given it the smell or even the taste test and insist that it’s NOT pee. Scientific research on the matter has been inconsistent. In a study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, researchers determined that the fluid emitted during orgasm showed all the characteristics of prostate plasma and not urine and concluded that this might be proof that our Paraurethral/Skene’s gland, where the fluid comes from, function as female prostate glands.
2. That everyone woman is capable of doing it, they just have to learn.
There are lots of “experts” in the female sex education world who think that it’s possible for every woman to squirt because, duh, we all have Skene’s glands so why shouldn’t we be able to. The leading expert in female ejaculation, Deborah Sundahl, offers books and workshops that “makes female ejaculation within reach for most woman.” I think the operative word here is most. What does most really mean? Research is, again, inconsistent. Percentages of women who report that they have at some time experienced the gushing of fluid during orgasm range from six percent to 60 percent depending on the study. Another factor which may determine a woman’s ability to squirt is the placement of the Skene’s gland and ability to produce prostate fluid. This varies from woman to woman, meaning that, physiologically, not every woman can squirt, even with the proper education.
3. That “squirting” and “gushing” are the same thing as female ejaculation.
Squirting and gushing are often used interchangeably when talking about female ejaculation, but they’re actually a different thing. It’s been suggested that “real” female ejaculation includes the release of a thick and whitish fluid from the female prostate, while “squirting” or “gushing,” commonly seen in porn, is the expulsion of clear fluid from the urinary bladder. Much of our confusion about female ejaculation comes from mixing these two phenomena up.
4. That it’s caused by stimulation of the G-spot.
Because we’re still confused about the G-Spot, it’s no wonder that there’s some question as to whether or not the G-Spot is responsible for female ejaculation. Here’s the deal: the Skene’s gland is located on the back wall of the vagina near the lower end of the urethra and may be near or part of the G-Spot. So, while stimulating the G-Spot during sex may lead to female ejaculation for some women for others it may not do jack. And that’s assuming that you’ve found your G-Spot. God, vaginas require so much effort.
5. That women who can ejaculate experience more pleasure than those who don’t.
Some women who can ejaculate have claimed that their “wet orgasms” are better than the very best “dry orgasm.” To this sexual superiority complex, I say WHATEVER. If you are enjoying your “dry orgasms,” good for you. And if you’re enjoying your wet orgasms, good for you, too! No one has the right to tell anyone how they should be experiencing pleasure. Do what works for you.
6. That what you see in porn is real.
Oh porn and the unrealistic, sexual expectations it imposes upon us. Whenever you see a large amount of fluid squirting out of a woman’s vagina in porn, keep in mind that this can be faked by putting water in the vagina before filming or by having a woman pee on camera. Women who can ejaculate will tell you that it’s easiest when you are relaxed and having cameras on you is not the most relaxing way to experience pleasure. Most women who ejaculate report that they are not able to do it on command like circus ponies. Imagine that.

It seems like every time a woman talks about her sex life, there is always someone who brings up the topic of female ejaculation. While it may seem like a topic that’s shrouded in mystery, the reality is that squirting is much more common than we think. Unfortunately, there are still plenty of myths out there about squirting that need to be debunked. In this blog post, we will debunk the many myths around female ejaculation and explore the truths behind them. From its composition to its purpose and more, read on to learn more about what happens when you squirt and why it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
What is Squirting?
The concept of squirting is often shrouded in mystery and misconceptions. Many people believe that squirting is the same as female ejaculation, but this is not the case. Squirting is a distinct phenomenon that occurs when a woman becomes sexually aroused and her body releases a clear, odorless fluid from her urethra. This fluid is different from urine, as it does not contain any waste products.
Squirting is not always linked to orgasm, although it can be. Some women may squirt without even knowing it, while others may only do so during or after orgasm. For some women, squirting is an intensely pleasurable experience, while for others it may be nothing more than a wet mess.
There is still much unknown about squirting, but scientists believe that the fluid is produced by the Skene’s gland, which is located near the urethra. When this gland becomes stimulated, it releases the fluid. It’s thought that all women have Skene’s glands, but not all of them are able to produce enough fluid to squirt.
If you’re curious about experiencing squirting yourself, there’s no harm in trying. Experiment with different kinds of stimulation – both solo and with a partner – to see what works for you. And remember, there’s no right or wrong way to enjoy your sexuality!
The Myths About Squirting
There are a lot of myths out there about squirting, and it’s time to set the record straight. For starters, squirting is not pee. It’s a mix of urine and vaginal fluid that is expelled through the urethra during sexual stimulation or arousal.
Secondly, not all women can squirt. It’s a skill that must be learned, and some women simply don’t have the anatomy to do it. Thirdly, squirting is not always associated with orgasm. Some women can squirt without orgasm, while others may only orgasm when they squirt.
Finally, squirting is perfectly normal and healthy. There’s nothing wrong with doing it, and it doesn’t mean you’re dirty or naughty. So if you want to learn how to squirt, go for it! Just don’t believe the myths about it.
How to Squirt
It seems like every time you search for information on female ejaculation, there’s a new article with conflicting information. So we’re here to set the record straight: here are the most common myths about squirting, and the real facts you need to know.
MYTH #1: SQUIRTING IS THE SAME AS URINATING
Many people believe that squirting is just urine, but that’s not the case. While both fluids are expelled from the urethra, they are actually quite different. Urine is mostly water with small amounts of urea and other waste products, while female ejaculate is composed of prostatic fluid and glucose.
MYTH #2: ONLY SOME WOMEN CAN SQUIRT
Actually, all women have the potential to squirt – it’s just that some haven’t been able to do it yet. The reason why some women can squirt and others can’t has more to do with technique than anything else. If you want to learn how to squirt, it’s important to find instructions that work for your body type and physiology.
MYTH #3: SQUIRTING IS A LOSS OF CONTROL
On the contrary, many women find that squirting is an incredibly empowering experience. Not only does it feel amazing, but it also allows you to let go of any inhibitions or self-consciousness you may feel about
It seems like there is a lot of confusion out there about female ejaculation and squirting. So let’s clear up some myths!
Myth #1: All women can squirt.
Fact: While all women have the potential to squirt, not all women do. It takes some practice and patience to learn how to squirt, but it is definitely possible!
Myth #2: Squirting is just peeing.
Fact: Squirting is NOT peeing! Peeing occurs when the bladder is full and the muscles around the urethra relax, allowing urine to pass through. Female ejaculation happens when the G-spot is stimulated and the Skene’s gland is stimulated, causing fluid to be released from the urethra. This fluid is not urine; it’s actually a clear, viscous liquid that contains prostatic acid phosphatase, glucose, and fructose (which is why it sometimes tastes sweet!).
Myth #3: Only during orgasm can a woman squirt.
Fact: While orgasm does play a role in female ejaculation, it’s not necessary for it to happen. Some women can squirt without even having an orgasm; they just need sufficient stimulation of their G-spot.
So there you have it! Now go forth and enjoy your new-found knowledge about female ejaculation!
Tips for Squirting
If you’re interested in experiencing female ejaculation, also known as “squirting,” there are a few things you should know. First and foremost, contrary to popular belief, any woman can squirt! It’s not some special trait that only a select few are blessed with. Here are a few tips to help you along the way:
1. Get yourself aroused: This is probably the most important step. If you’re not turned on, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to reach orgasm, let alone squirt. So take your time, relax, and get your mind and body in the mood.
2. Stimulate your G-spot: Once you’re aroused, it’s time to focus on stimulating your G-spot. This is usually done with fingers or a sex toy specifically designed for G-spot stimulation. Apply pressure and/or vibration to this sensitive area until you feel the urge to pee (this is totally normal!). Keep going and soon you’ll be experiencing intense pleasure and possibly even squirting!
3. Use plenty of lube: This is key for anyone trying to stimulate their G-spot, but it’s especially important if you want to squirt. The extra lubrication will help keep everything nice and slippery so you can keep focusing on the pleasure instead of worrying about discomfort.
4. Have fun and experiment: There’s no one right way to squirt, so don’t get too caught up in trying to
There are a lot of myths out there about squirting, or female ejaculation. For starters, some people believe that only certain women can do it. This simply isn’t true! Any woman has the potential to squirt, though it may take a bit of practice to get there.
All women are capable of squirting?
It seems like every day there’s a new article or video about female squirting. And while the phenomenon itself is no longer shrouded in mystery, there are still a lot of myths about it that need to be debunked.
First and foremost, squirting is not pee. It’s not even close. While both urine and female ejaculate (the fluid that comes out when you squirt) come from the urethra, they are completely different things. Urine is made up of water, electrolytes, and waste products that your body needs to get rid of. Female ejaculate, on the other hand, is made up of prostatic fluid and tiny amounts of urine.
Second, all women are capable of squirting. It may take some practice – and a partner who knows what they’re doing – but any woman can do it. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to have a G-spot to squirt; any kind of stimulation to the urethra can cause it.
Third, squirting is not just something that happens during orgasm; it can happen before, during, or after orgasm – or even without orgasm at all. It’s also not necessarily always accompanied by intense pleasure; some women report feeling nothing more than a sense of relief when they squirt.
Finally, if you do want to try squirting, know that it takes patience and experimentation. Different techniques work
It’s a common misconception that squirting is only something that happens in porn. The reality is that any woman is capable of squirting, it’s just a matter of finding the right spot and stimulating it correctly.
The key to squirting is stimulation of the G-spot, which is located on the front wall of the vagina about 2-3 inches inside. To find it, insert your fingers into the vagina and feel for a spongy area. Once you’ve found it, apply firm pressure and massage in a come hither motion until you feel the urge to urinate. This is when you know you’re close to squirting.
Continue with the stimulation and soon you’ll experience an intense release of fluid. This is what’s known as female ejaculation or squirting. It’s perfectly normal and nothing to be ashamed of. So next time you’re in the mood for some solo play, don’t hold back – let yourself go and enjoy the amazing feeling of squirting!
Squirting requires G-spot stimulation?
The G-spot is a sensitive area located on the front wall of the vagina, about two to three inches up from the opening. It’s usually easiest to find when a woman is aroused, as it swells and becomes more pronounced. Stimulating the G-spot can lead to intense pleasure and even orgasm for some women.
For some women, G-spot stimulation also leads to squirting, or female ejaculation. This happens when fluid is expelled from the Skene’s glands, which are located around the urethra (the same opening that urine comes out of). When these glands are stimulated, they produce a small amount of fluid that is expelled through the urethra.
Squirting is often confused with peeing, but there are a few key differences. First, squirting generally happens during or after sexual activity, while urination typically happens before or during sexual activity. Second, squirted fluid is usually clear and odorless, while urine can be yellowish and have a strong smell. Finally, squirting generally results in a small amount of fluid being expelled, while urinating involves expel
The G-spot is a controversial topic in the world of female sexuality. Some people believe that it exists, while others think it’s a myth. However, there is some evidence to suggest that the G-spot may be responsible for squirting.
In order for a woman to squirt, she needs to have strong stimulation of her G-spot. This can be done with a finger, sex toy, or penis. The G-spot is located on the front wall of the vagina, about two to three inches inside. It has a slightly spongy texture and is usually most responsive to firm pressure.
When the G-spot is stimulated, it can cause intense pleasure and even lead to orgasm. For some women, this stimulation can also cause them to expel fluid from their urethra. This fluid is often clear and odorless, and it’s different from urine.
So, while there’s no guarantee that every woman can squirt, it does seem like G-spot stimulation is necessary for this fun and sexy phenomenon. If you want to try it out with your partner, make sure you’re both comfortable exploring your bodies and communicating about what feels good.
Squirting is fake?
It’s no secret that there’s a lot of misinformation out there about female ejaculation. And while we’re not here to tell you what is or isn’t true for your body, we do want to clear up some common misconceptions about squirting. So, without further ado, here are four myths about squirting that you need to stop believing:
Myth #1: Squirting is fake.
We’ll just go ahead and get this one out of the way. Squirting is very real and it is indeed possible for women to eject fluid from their vaginas during sexual arousal and orgasm. This fluid is typically clear and odorless, and it’s thought to come from the Skene’s glands – which are located near the urethra (the same opening that urine comes out of).
Women cannot control if and when they squirt?
There is a lot of misinformation out there about squirting, or female ejaculation. Let’s clear some things up. First off, women CAN control if and when they squirt. It is not something that just happens during sex without any effort on the woman’s part. Secondly, squirting is NOT pee. It is a completely different fluid that comes from the Skene’s glands, which are located near the urethra. Lastly, squirting is perfectly normal and healthy! So don’t be alarmed if you experience it (or your partner does).
