Squirting, Female Ejaculation, Gushing, Oh My!

Squirting, Female Ejaculation, Gushing, Oh My!

The Vagina! What a magical, mysterious, powerful organ we possess. When aroused the vagina can cream, squirt, leak, gush, clench, drip, pulsate, throb, and even manifest! What I love the most personally is the pleasure it brings me.

Which brings me to the topic of squirting, and female ejaculation. I will dedicate another blog post solely to orgasms very soon, so stay tuned.

Before getting started, I would like to note that I am no gynecologist, sex therapist, or vagina scientist. However, I am a devoted, intelligent sex educator and have done lots of studying to bring me to the conclusions I am going to make in this post.

Let's start with what female ejaculation is exactly, which we will refer to as FE throughout this post. FE is the involuntary expulsion of fluid from the urethra during orgasm or sexual arousal. The urethra is the duct that carries the urine from the bladder through the urethral opening. It is a very tiny hole below the outer of your clitoris and above your vaginal opening.

That expulsion of fluid can be squirting fluid and/or the ejaculate fluid.

Squirting fluid: Fluid that is built up in the bladder and then released through the urethral opening during sexual arousal and stimulation. This is normally an involuntary act, not something you force out. It's normally colorless, odorless and can gush out larger quantities of the fluid. Scientist have concluded it's from the bladder because of the amount of fluid that can expel from squirting, no other organ can hold that amount of fluid.

When your body is so aroused it's creating different hormones and chemically things are going wild inside your body. Instead of your squirt containing solely urea and creatinine – (the key chemical element of pee) - it contains PSA which is the prostate-specific antigen also found in the cum of male semen produced in the Skene's gland (some may call the female prostate). Squirting has been studied and is said to contain water, glucose, fructose, PSA, and proteins, creatinine and urea. During arousal, your bladder will fill up; and when released during sex the squirt is going to appear simply as diluted pee, which technically it is. Since it does pass through the urethra where urine also passes through, it can contain larger traces of urea and creatinine. Especially if you don't pee before sex to empty out your bladder. The consistency and amount of the fluid can also be determined by the amount of water you drink; not juices, soda, coffee, and alcohol. The act of squirting will only be released if your body is relaxed. Too much tension, or pressure can prevent you from squirting.

In my opinion EVERY WOMAN IS CAPABLE OF SQUIRTING. Either, you need a different partner that will take their time with foreplay and also learning your body and taking their time with your body, you aren't hydrated enough, you aren't relaxed, you're overthinking, your diet is poor, you're feeling pressured, you have mental health problems, such as anxiety or depression, or deeply rooted sexual trauma that disrupts your current sex life, just to name a few! There are so many variables that can play a part. You can't just simple push a button to squirt unfortunately.

I squirt from deep penetration (cervical orgasms) and clitoral stimulation especially from oral sex. But not just any position and not just any penis; it always has to be the right recipe.

Ejaculate fluid: Fluid that is built up in the Skene's glands and trickled out of the Skene's openings. Remnants of the female ejaculate fluid can also be released through the urethral opening during squirting; that amount can be high or low depending on the size of your Skene's. The openings are very tiny and located below the urethral opening. (see image below)

Skene's Glands
The fluid is thick and appears more milky very similar to male semen. Mixed with your other vaginal secretions (discharge and arousal fluids) it can 
appear less or more creamy/milky/thick/thin/etc. Some Skene's glands vary in development which is why some women experience the emission of fluid and some don't. The bigger your Skene's the grander your FE! The FE fluid released should not be yellow (or clear pee), unless you purposely want to urine on somebody, because that's definitely a kink lol. It trickles out, some may refer to the act as leaking or gushing. It trickles down your labia's adding a lot more juices. Sometimes I feel like the leaking lingers on past my orgasm; I would orgasm and still feel my vagina leaking. It's a wonderful feeling.

Note that it is normal to release a little bit of urine during orgasm or squirting especially if you have some type of urinary incontinence or if you didn't pee before sex. 

Another gland adding to all of your wetness is the Bartholin glands. These glands are located near the bottom of the vaginal opening. It secreted mucus to add more lubrication to the vagina when aroused.

So with all these fluids playing a role and causing a mess of your sheets, I guess its difficult for scientist to really hone in on the who, what, when, where, and why's of FE and squirting. But this is my representation on my educated findings. I will continue to update you all on my theories as I continue to learn. Hope that you have found it helpful.

    Is squirting always a ‘squirt’ type gushing, or can it also be like a leaking type sensation?
