Squirt. It’s a phenomenon that not many women report being able to do. And unfortunately not much research has been done about the how’s, why’s, what’s around female squirt………yet we know the protein content of male ejaculation.
What do we know about female squirt?
- It does not come out of the vagina despite a recent poll suggesting many people think it does. It comes out of the urethra.
- Ejaculation and Squirt are two different things a female can do. Female ejaculation is the release of a thick & whitish fluid from the female prostate (Skene gland) while the “squirting” or “gushing” is the release of lots of clear fluid, which has been shown to be a diluted fluid from the urinary bladder.
- The Skene gland is thought to aid in the production of the fluid but again not much research has been done on this to know exactly what part it plays in female squirt. It is thought to contribute because females squirt does contain prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) prostate-specific antigen (PSA), and also some glucose.
- The fluid is NOT urine. It typically doesn’t contain urea or creatinine which urine is made up of. The fluid tends to be clear but can have a light yellowish hue to it because it does come from the urethra.
Don’t get frustrated if you have not squirted before. Studies show 3/4 women have not squirted before. Studies do show that women learning how to squirt have the best chance to make themselves squirt first with toys and manual manipulation. Then once you know how to, you can have your partner practice on you. Just remember that sex is supposed to be fun, don’t overthink it and worry so much about squirting. Relaxation is the key!
Many times porn stars fill their vaginas with water and then squirt it out and that’s why people get the wrong idea that squirting comes from the vagina rather than the urethra. So be careful when using this as your resource for what squirting is like.
