“Squirting” is usually translated with the word “cumshot”, the term goes back to the English term “to squirt”, which means “(out)squirt”. However, in many cases it is actually more of a leakage than a cumshot of a certain secretion from the vagina. So the term does not have to be understood too literally.
This refers to the phenomenon that some women expel fluid from the vagina during sex. This usually happens in connection with an orgasm, which is why squirting is often compared to a male ejaculation.
Squirting: 6 Facts about Wet Pleasure
Squirting is not the same as female ejaculation. During female orgasm, a small amount of whitish, viscous fluid can come out of the glands of the erectile tissue around the urethra – comparable to the male prostate. So that would be the female ejaculate – but has nothing to do with squirting.
In contrast to the female ejaculate, there is sound, scientific evidence that the squirting fluid that comes out during sex comes from the bladder and consists largely of urine, so it is also much brighter than the female ejaculate. But no need to be ashamed!
Squirting is not feasible for an estimated half of all women, purely biologically. So if the partner really wants to make you come right – including a squirting experience – he can try laaaaange in case of doubt.
Good to know: squirting is not an indicator of better or worse sex, for a more intense or gentle orgasm.
Science still does not know exactly why the female body can squirt. One possible theory: the pelvic floor contractions are responsible for which are designed differently from woman to woman.
According to studies, a loss of control of the bladder or urinary incontinence during sex is not comparable to squirting. It can be triggered by an overstimulated bladder, a weak pelvic floor or even in case of pregnancy.
