It has long been known that the female genitalia secrete fluid during arousal and orgasm. When we say “for a long time” – believe me, this is not an exaggeration. Even in Hippocrates there were mentions of the female “seed”. It was mentioned in the Kama Sutra that it helps to “create” children. Later, in the 17th century, the Dutch anatomist Renier de Graaf described the female genital organs, mentioning the fluid that is released from a woman during orgasm – the scientist associated this with erogenous zones located inside the woman’s vagina, like the prostate in men.


It is still unclear how many of us actually know how to “ejaculate”. Modern studies are contradictory, but estimate the number of lucky women at about 10-54% of the total number of women. According to a 2013 study of 320 women, the amount of “ejaculate” ranged from 0.3 ml to more than 150 ml: that is, from a few drops to half a teacup.

The biggest question about squirting is what the fluid is. Is this normal urine? Maybe the squirt is just the result of mechanical incontinence caused by thrusting?

In one 2014 study, women were asked to empty their bladders and then had an ultrasound to make sure they were doing it right. After that, they became aroused, they again had an ultrasound and noticed that the bladder filled up again. Finally, the women were given a squirt and another ultrasound. It turned out that their bladder was empty again. Does this mean that squirt is urine? The question is still difficult.


In addition, a pharmacological analysis of the composition of the fluid showed that it coincides only to a small extent with the composition of urine (creatinine and urea), but it contains quite a lot of additional components, in particular, from the prostate specific antigen, PSA. In men, this antigen is produced by the prostate, while women’s bodies also contain prostate tissue – this structure is known as Skene’s gland. The glands are located on the anterior wall of the vagina. Some studies show that their contents drain through the ducts into the lower part of the urethra.


The different sizes and structural features of these glands may explain why some women may experience squirt while others may not.


What does squirt look like

Usually women describe squirting as a very bright and long orgasm.

“Regarding the sensations during the squirt, I also heard different things: both what is weaker than the usual orgasm, and what is stronger. Looking ahead, I’ll say: as if longer, says sex blogger Elena Galetskaya. – It feels like it’s being thrown up higher and higher, and in about one push to the very top, a squirt occurs. I was embarrassed by surprise and knocked down a little, but the highest point was after. The sensations in total were like a long orgasm, where one discharge follows another.

Elena was joined by commentators with conflicting reviews: “It never happened, but here it happened at the moment of oral sex. And I would compare it to an electric shock. I have certain problems with the finale, but here it is … of course.


“I didn’t try the feeling of“ well, that’s it. I was more surprised and angry that at night looking it was necessary to change the bed linen and dry the mattress cover. Maybe it also depends on the initial level of arousal. Perhaps in a more excited state, the sensations would be brighter.

“I also had my first squirt with Womanizer. And it was very unusual and really knocked down a little. Then you already know that, perhaps, you are ready for sensations and secretions. But I will not say that the sensations are very different from orgasm. It’s as if the same piece is being played in a different key.”

Like this: squirt is the same orgasm, but in a different tone. We will tell you how to achieve it in our next article.
