The Secret to Female Ejaculation or 'Squirting'
Female ejaculation, or “squirting,” is a topic of such strong debate, people may have a hard time deciding whether it's a real phenomenon or not unless they have experienced it firsthand.
Rest assured though, squirting is very real (and I'm not just referring to the act of slamming back a can of Squirt soda).
Urine For A Big Surprise
The most common misconception about squirting is this: the gushing fluids spewing forth from the female genitalia during orgasm is not really ejaculate, it is...eek... urine! Don don don! Don't worry. This theory is completely false. While female ejaculate does come from the para-urethral ducts around the urethra, the chemical composition of the ejaculate is extremely different than that of urine.
Anyone who has seen it in person can tell you how much different squirting is than urination. Opposed to this outpouring of fluid being a yellow tinged and foul smelling toxin-filled liquid, like urine, female ejaculate more closely resembles watered down skim milk. However, the first time a woman experiences squirting, she may briefly think it is urine, due to a large amount of hot fluid being really suddenly discharged out of her urethra. Urinating before and after sex is always recommended for good female sexual health (to wash away harmful debris or bacteria), but eliminating urine from the body before sex is also a great first step towards achieving female ejaculation. Some women report feeling like they need to urinate right before they squirt, which is another reason for the confusion regarding whether or not this fluid contains urine.
Flooding and Damage Control
Squirting can result in the sudden expulsion of anywhere from 2 teaspoons to 2 cups of ejaculatory fluid. That being said, squirting can be a bit of a wet mess. Did someone holding an umbrella just ask, “Where's my mop bucket?” Women who tend to squirt very often, or in great quantities, may even opt for using rubber sheets, mattress protectors or laying out preparatory towels on the bed for easier clean up after sexual activity. Moving sexual activity off of down comforters, upholstered furniture or shag carpets and onto a more nonporous surface like the shower or a tiled floor is highly recommended. Just be careful not to slip and fall (seriously, it happens).
Gee, That Really Hit The Spot
Sorry to break it to you guys, but penile penetration is not necessary in order for a woman to squirt. The most essential part of the process is prolonged and specific stimulation of the G-Spot. The G-Spot is located about a finger's length inside of the vagina on the front wall (towards the belly button). It will be a different texture (raised, ridged or lumpy) than the rest of the vagina will feel like, and be the approximate size of, a squishy walnut shell. Squirting can be achieved by repeatedly rubbing the G-Spot with your fingertips. Silicone-base lubricants like Wet Platinum can be an immense help during this fast and furious G-Spot arousal. Just a few drops on the fingertips should do it. Clitoral orgasms are not likely to induce female ejaculation, although simultaneous clitoral and G-Spot arousal, like what you get from the Decadent Indulgence 2, can definitely get the job done right. Some women also claim to need to be fully relaxed and feel a strong emotional connection with their partner to achieve a female ejaculation, while others can give them to themselves with the help of adult toys, such as a G-Spot vibrator like the Sweet G, which is specifically angled for this purpose.
Pelvic Four on The Floor
Using the pelvic floor muscles to forcefully push out the ejaculate is a very important step, as it is the last step before the fluid is actually ejected from the body. So, having strong pelvic muscles can make or break a woman's ability to squirt. Oftentimes, the pelvic floor muscles get damaged by vaginal births (especially multiple vaginal births), so this may prevent a woman from being able to effectively push out her ejaculate.
Can't Fake The Squirt
Since squirting has gained a lot of popularity in the media recently, even becoming a subject of innumerable pornographic movies, many adult film stars are faking the act in order to better market their films to a growing audience of fluid fetishists. You can see the difference between a fake squirt and the real thing by noticing exactly where the fluid is being emitted from. If something which looks like water is coming out of the opening of the vagina, especially after a choppy video edit, this is a fake, since female ejaculation occurs from the urethra which is near the clitoris. In the case of a vaginal squirt, water had simply been inserted into the film star's vagina with a lube plunger prior to the squirt scene. So, if you have seen squirting in an adult film, but never in real life, you may still be very surprised by where it comes out when it happens to you in real life.
