Squirting: What Science Says

Howdy, y’all. I don’t know if you know this, but one of my top google hits is, and always has been, female ejaculation.

Now, I know many of my friends out there experience it (*waves to Hy and Kayla) and many of you know it’s real, but there are still doubters out there, people who just can’t seem to wrap their heads around it.

So I found this article in Psychology Today, and I wanted to share it. It’s discusses what science has to say about squirting. And even for an experienced bed soaker, I found it rather interesting.

So here’s the deal. I’ve got some of the article below, done up in the quotes. I’ve responded to the excerpts I’ve included. You’ll get the flow of things. And please, check out the whole article here.

Female Ejaculation: What’s Known and Unknown

      Ten to 50 percent of women produce fluid on orgasm.
Published on January 2, 2014 by Michael Castleman, M.A. in All About Sex

Since it was first reported in the early 1980s, controversy has surrounded female ejaculation. But the most recent research—most of it conducted in Slovakia—strengthens the case for women’s ability to release fluid on orgasm, and suggests that it comes from the same gland that produces most of the fluid in semen, the female analogue of the male prostate.

G-spot, P-spot… Come on, like we didn’t know they had something to do with the other. They both create intense feelings of pleasure, can be found by feeling for a different texture in the tissue, and respond greatly to pressure. (If you are looking for more information, check these out: The Prostate: Your guy’s G-spot and Making Her Squirt the First Time.)

In the middle of the vulva, above the vaginal opening but below the clitoris, is the opening of women’s urine tube, the urethra. A group of glands are embedded in the tissue around it, the paraurethral glands…

In the 1880s, Alexander Skene discovered the first two paraurethral glands, called Skene’s glands. Skene documented that the glands he discovered produce a little fluid. Since then, several other paraurethral glands have been identified. The glands’ arrangement, and the fact that they produce fluid reminded researchers of the prostate. As a result, some sexologists call these glands the “female prostate.” But the name has not caught on. As far as non-sexologists are concerned, men have prostates and women don’t.

It astonishes me that this idea has “not caught on.” I mean, after all, men and women, we aren’t that different. Christ, men have nipples, so what’s to stop a woman from having a prostate. Oversights in evolution happen (tonsils, appendixes, etc…), so it is no surprise if men have one, so do women.

Writers dating back to the ancient Romans, reported that women produce a thin fluid that “flows when they experience the greatest pleasure.” The Kama Sutra and centuries-old Japanese erotic works also mention fluid issuing from women’s genitals during orgasm.

And stupid, fucking us, denying what the ancients already knew. They didn’t question everything, try to disprove what was obvious. They saw, they witnessed, they accepted.

…Alfred Kinsey, the first American sex researcher, and Masters and Johnson, the inventors of sex therapy, dismissed female ejaculation as simply extra-copious vaginal lubrication.

Okay, so I don’t want to badmouth Kinsey or Masters and Johnson, who all had a hand in promoting sexual knowledge in America. But come the fuck on, this research is over 45 years old; Christ, Kinsey died in 1956! It’s time to look at modern shit people. And believe me, if you’ve ever experienced a squirter, you know damn well it’s not just “extra-copious vaginal lubrication.”

Perry and Whipple also documented the fact that vigorous G-spot stimulation increased the likelihood of female ejaculation on orgasm.

Duh. And once you get the hang of it, it doesn’t even need to be G-spot stimulation.  I have been known to squirt from vaginal play, clitoral play, or nipple play. It’s all matter of learning your body and how it functions.

…Researchers analyzed female ejaculatory fluid and found that it is not urine, but rather a combination of secretions from the paraurethral glands that chemically resemble prostate secretions in men.

This is one of the biggest misconceptions there are, I think, for both men and women. When it happens, especially the first few times or when it’s completely unexpected, it’s completely understandable that you don’t know what the fuck’s going on. It’s an orgasm unlike any other, and there’s a pressure, sort of like when you have to pee, and then a release. So I understand where the misconception comes from. But if one is to look deeper, it becomes evident it is not urine. It does not smell like urine. It is not yellow. And you can pee, and cum right afterwards. So, believe you me, it is not piss. I promise.

• Microscopic studies of the Skene’s glands show “secretory” cells, i.e., cells that secrete fluid.

• Women produce prostate-specific antigen (PSA). PSA is a compound unique to the prostate gland. If women produce PSA, they must have tissue analogous to the male prostate.

• Enzymes characteristic of the male prostate are also found in the Skene’s glands.

We should stop denying the obvious. There are too many similarities to discredit this theory of the female prostate. I once heard that if a female has a G-spot orgasm, and doesn’t ejaculate, that her next urine will contain the same chemicals that are found in the fluid of women that squirt. I tried to look this up, and find you a reputable source, but… well… I’ve had a few drinks and am working on a pretty good buzz, so I honestly don’t care that much.

It’s possible that most or all women do ejaculate, but that studies to date have not been sophisticated enough to document it. It’s also possible that for reasons that remain unclear, some women don’t ejaculate.

I can believe this. I’ve always been a very sexual person (imagine that). I’ve always been very orgasmic. And there were times I could squirt (One of my exes had a 1986 Lincoln Town Car that had just the right angle), but it took me years to actually figure it out and be able to have some sort of control over my ejaculation.

So, I guess the point of the story is female ejaculation in real and it’s time to accept the fact people. If you already squirt, congratulations. If not, it’s time to find a partner who is willing to walk down the path of trial and error to help you figure it out!

*hugs and kisses* and *wet orgasms*

When I was in 5th grade, I remember cleaning my room with my mom and having an MC Hammer tape in my ghetto blaster (I can’t believe I just used that word). This song came on and I was singing along, jamming while I put my clothes away. She freaked. Needless to say, my mom smashed my tape into pieces and I had no idea why. At least until I reached my teenage years.

  1. I love it that little flower is a squirter, darn near came close to drowning me one time. 🙂

  2. Hey you!
    I saw the coolest documentary about this and have been planning ever since to write an indignant post about how the medical world has “left out” the female prostate. Fuckers! There were medical drawing of it in the 16th century! This infuriates me because I think that there are loads of women who don’t squirt or even attain orgasm and then think it’s all their fault, as if they are flawed…yuno?

    Yet another interesting post! Thanks. 🙂

    Bises,
    Dawn

    PS: I squirted for the first (4) times this month. Life is beautiful! And wet.

    • First and foremost, CON-GRAT-U-FUCKING-LATIONS my friend! And it’s about damn time! haha.
      And, hell, I’m all about teaching women more ways to cum. Especially those that have difficulty. I believe we are all designed to orgasm, we simply have to figure it out. We all have the same parts after all!
      And I’d love to watch that documentary. If you think of the title, email it to me! *hugs and kisses* dear Dawn!

  3. Grrrreat post!!!! You squirters should unite and march on Washington to demand an explanation! After all, if they can fund bovine fart research for contributing to green house gases (imagining cows being saddled with tubes up there asses) they can damn sure put this one to bed (humor) and prove once and for all- “Yes Virginia, there are squirters after all…” -and then mark my words- you thought the 50 Shades thing was viral amongst the mommy masturbaters, just wait till the rest of ’em try and figure it out, holy shit! Washing machine mfr’s, fresh water plants and sewage systems are gonna get max’d out trying to keep up with the demand of producing clean bed sheets! 🙂

    Thank you for your research and publication…

    -Mynx’s Sir (Tom Wolf)

    • See, the secret Mr. Wolf, is that we need to design cute, non-disturbing, reusable bed mats, like you use when potty training or with an elderly person. But we need to find a way to make them sexy. Because let me tell you, I fucking hate washing sheets! And I can run out of towels so quickly!

      Glad you liked the post! And thanks for reading! *hugs and kisses*

  4. In the last year the amount of laundry I find myself doing is just ridiculous! But It’s so worth it! Stay hydrated!

    • It’s crazy, isn’t it? And I HATE laundry. Remember those yellow rags, that would be on late night TV infomecials? They could absorb massive amounts of fluid at a time, and you simply rung them dry. We need something like those! haha. *hugs and kisses* dear Cailin. Mwah!

      • So we use a heavier, flexible shower curtain liner and then cover it with a towel. The liner protects everything beneath and you only use one towel per session. It’s cut down dramatically on our washing machine usage- though the water bill remained the same. I had trouble with this at first, but soon realized that Mynx was taking a longer shower or refilling the bath, not to mention her rehydrating, LOL.

      • Omg! Yes I remember those! On the hunt….perhaps amazon has them! Another tip is a liberator blanket…heard of them? I seriously need to get one…don’t know why I keep putting it off.

        Hugs and kisses to you Caitlyn!

  5. Hey girly.. you know this is one of my favorite subjects!
    It has taken over and thank goodness for my liberator blanket!
    Very WET hugs!

  6. Hear hear! Great post 🙂

    I have been known to squirt from vaginal play, clitoral play, or nipple play. It’s all matter of learning your body and how it functions. Too true – I had to learn, back in 2012, how to not gush when orgasming, as it was something that I did every single damned time (we have more ‘bedroom’ towels in the house than ‘bathroom’ towels). Learning about how my body works is great!

  27. Any thoughts on getting the squirt back when it’s been missing in action for 20 some years? I had exactly one enlightened BF in the 80s who thought it was cool and removed the stigma (and this was before info abounded on line). Otherwise, I thought it was weird of me, and worried guys would flip out, so it was reserved for private times only. Ugh, I hate remembering how awesome that was, and so want to guide the hubby to the magic “button.” Anyone out there think there’s an age thing to this (i.e., your squirting may vary depending on age?)
