Talking about orgasms can make anyone feel vulnerable and nervous. Add squirting into the mix, and things get even more steamy! The researchers found that many women were unaware of squirting before it happened to them. Those who knew about it were often provided with skewed information. Introducing squirting to your partner requires careful preparation.
It’s Not a Sign of Bad Sex
Squirting, whether it’s urine or a mixture of seminal fluid and pheromones, is a sign that a woman’s body is happy, excited, and having fun. Men who have been conditioned to think of women as “squeaky clean” and anti-sexual will likely find it gross, but those who understand that sex is fluid and not just an object is going to be deeply gratified by seeing their partner enjoy themselves so much that she gets the urge to squirt. Squirting is most commonly triggered by penetrative sex and simultaneous clitoral stimulation, but it can occur anytime during sexual activity. It’s also not exclusive to climaxing and can be felt in any part of the vagina. While it isn’t guaranteed that squirting will lead to an orgasm, many women report that it does. And since the uterus and vagina muscles tighten as we orgasm, a woman squirting during sex may be ejaculating and not know it. In any case, it’s never a good idea to make a woman squirt under pressure. If it’s not something she wants to do, that’s fine too. The key is to let a woman decide her pleasures and communicate clearly with her sexual partner so they’re both on the same page.
It’s Not a Sign of Emotional Stimulation
The sensations of squirting vary from person to person. It also depends on how often they’ve had sex before, what they eat and drink (if anything), and their overall sexual activity. Squirting is a mixture of urine and other secretions released during an orgasm in a person with a vulva. It’s a lot like female ejaculation, but researchers aren’t sure why it happens. Some experts think the liquid mixes pee and other fluids, while others believe it’s unique. Some women say squirting occurs around the G-spot area, while others have reported it was happening after clitoral or anal stimulation. It’s unclear whether squirting has any sexual or physical benefits, but it certainly does make for some exciting and intimate moments. It’s important not to put too much pressure on your partner to squirt or make them feel bad if they don’t do it as often. If you’re having trouble getting them to squirt, try different techniques like stroking and massaging their clit and putting pressure on the G-spot.
It’s Not a Sign of a Strong Orgasm
Until recently, researchers thought squirting was a fancy word for female ejaculation. Now, however, scientists believe that squirting is distinct from ejaculation and occurs independently of it. The liquid squirts are not urine but a mix of secretions and fluid from the vulva. In addition, squirting typically occurs during sexual arousal and can happen to anyone with a vagina, regardless of gender. It’s not unusual for women to squirt during masturbation, and squirting can occur alone or with clitoral or G-spot stimulation. The fluid squirted out during squirting is not only orgasmic but also gratifying and liberating. Those who experience this sensation describe it as a feeling of total-body relaxation and a sense of being carefree momentarily. Everyone’s bodies react to different types of stimulation differently. Don’t be afraid to explore what else can arouse you and see how your body responds best.
It’s Not a Sign of Shame
In one study, women who squirted were asked to describe their experiences. Their narratives reflected a range of emotions, from excitement and feelings of sexual empowerment to shame and discomfort. They were also often unaware that squirting could happen and, in some cases, had only received skewed information about it in the media or during their sex education. This was especially true for those who were squirting for the first time. Squirting can feel a lot like peeing, but it isn’t. According to some biochemical analyses, the clear fluid released is probably a combination of water and urine. It’s hard to say whether the squirting is coming from the vagina or clitoris, but it likely passes through the bladder. Even though many people think it’s inappropriate to talk about squirting, it’s important to remember that everyone is different. Unless you’re a medical professional, it’s not your job to determine what’s happening inside a person’s body.
