“Squirting” is a word that has gained prominence all over social media. Many know what it is whiles many don’t. Squirting is essentially female ejaculation, when a person with a vulva emits liquid from the urethra in response to sexual stimulation or orgasm. The fluid released usually looks like water and is colourless and odourless.
There are a whole lot of myths about squirting so let’s delve into some of them and learn a thing or two about that sought after gush of water.
Myth # 1. Squirting is an Orgasm
It’s pleasurable but it’s more like a release of fluid. It’s not an orgasm but rather like ejaculation. Ejaculation and orgasm are two separate functions: you can have an orgasm without ejaculating and you can ejaculate without an orgasm.
Myth #2 Squirting is the same as getting wet
Nope. Getting wet has to do with arousal whiles squirting has to do with ejaculation. Some people get extra wet during arousal but that still isn’t squirting unless they’ve ejaculated.
Myth #3 Squirting isn’t Urine.
Squirting is urine because studies where women had filled bladders before ejaculation were seen to have emptied them after squirting. However, what makes squirting a bit different from clear urine is the presence of urea, creatinine, and uric acid concentrations. So it’s urine plus other compounds.
Myth #4 Every woman squirts
This is highly untrue. Either you have what we call an ejaculation or “squirting gland” or you don’t. If you don’t, then how are you going to increase your ejaculatory fluid? Also, social media has started to make a lot of women think what’s so easy in porn should be same in real life. It’s not so.
Some women actually practice how to urinate during sex and pass it off as squirting whiles some do it involuntary during ejaculation. Some others squirt but in very small amounts so wouldn’t know it’s actual squirting. Then there are those who can never squirt because they just can’t. It has nothing to do with their partner or themselves, that’s just how they’re wired.
Myth #5 Squirting is for a special type of woman.
Women since time immemorial have prevented themselves from cumming due to performance anxiety. A woman could be highly aroused and about to cum but would be so anxious about really cumming that they wouldn’t. Squirting can be achieved by more women but unfortunately, anxiety prevents most women from achieving it.
Squirting is a beautiful feeling but it’s a subset or a part of cumming. Sex involves foreplay, arousal, penetration and stimulation until the ultimate cum. Because we women get adversely affected when we’re all up in emotions, most of us are unable to ejaculate or squirt. Being aware of your own body and what stimulates can help your partner instead of always expecting him to do all the work.
