What’s the Deal With Squirting?

Is it pee? Is it an accident? Can every vulva-owner squirt? So many questions.

*What is squirting, anyway?
Squirting is another name for ejaculation that comes from the urethral sponge/CUV (clitourethrovaginal) complex/female prostate. it’s a gush (or trickle, or even just a few drops) of liquid that expels from the vagina during sex, oftentimes, but not always, in conjunction with an orgasm.

*Is squirt the same as pee?
A popular theory is that when some people with vaginas squirt, they release a fluid from the Skene’s glands, located on the upper wall of the vagina, down through the urethra. The fluid itself is a combination of urine and prostate fluid. But regardless of how much urine is actually in the fluid, many women argue that their orgasmic liquid looks and smells nothing like urine, and the action feels pretty different than plopping on the toilet for a pee. So while squirting might involve some urine, that doesn’t exactly mean it’s the same as peeing.

How much fluid you expel varies person to person. Some release a teaspoon amount. Others gush.

* Can every vulva-owner squirt?
Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t, sometimes you try forever and experience it for the first time in your 60s. Mainstream porn has led some viewers to believe that squirting is a lot more common than it actually is , whereas in reality, some vulva-owners don’t squirt . There is nothing wrong with not being able to squirt. Whether you squirt or not, however you experience pleasure is perfectly valid and should be celebrated.

*How can I make myself/my partner squirt?
You may think that in order to get your partner to squirt, you need to aggressively thrust with your hand and deliver the most pressure possible. This is not always the case. Every person is different when it comes to squirting. Some people need firm G-spot stimulation. Others need soft clitoral circling. Some vulva-owners can even squirt without any direct stimulation to their vulva.One popular technique involves a combination of clitoral and G-spot stimulation using your fingers or sex toys.

Tip: “I feel like I need to pee” , is often times your body trying to squirt. 😉
