Female ejaculation, aka squirting, is when a woman releases liquid from her vagina during sex. Like, a lot of liquid. You don't necessarily need to orgasm to squirt, although you may find the two go hand-in-hand. The good news is that female ejaculation is totally normal! Take a March study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine , which found that women's previously full bladders were empty after squirting.
Of all the things our bodies do, perhaps nothing is shrouded in more mystery than female ejaculation. Headlines and online forums are constantly speculating as to what it's made of, how it's triggered, and even whether or not it actually happens. We've been in the dark for so long about this phenomenon because it's kind of hard to study in a laboratory setting, sex therapist Vanessa Marin points out. But we do know that it's real, and contrary to recent rumors , it's not just pee.
For a start, is it really gism shooting out of your vagina, or are you just peeing all over the place? Does it feel nice? And OMG can women get themselves pregnant with their own lady-semen and will this eliminate the male race!? But perhaps most importantly of all, just how do you get a ticket to the wettest party in town and teach yourself to squirt?
