Female ejaculation, or squirting, is everywhere in porn. Although pornography featuring female ejaculation has been banned in the UK, it is the third most searched for category in Australia and remains a point of curiosity. But is it a reality?

Yes, it is a real thing. In fact, research suggests that around a third of women have experienced ‘female ejaculation’ during a sexual climax. However, it is not possible for everyone – it is believed that around 10-40% of women ejaculate recurrently.

What is ‘Squirting’?

Firstly, female ejaculation and orgasm are not the same thing. An ejaculation is the release of fluids, rather than the contracting of muscles and releasing of endorphins that accompany orgasms. Originating in the Skene’s gland, the fluid is drained through the urethra and is expelled at the point of shejaculation. The Skene’s gland can only be stimulated through the G-spot, as it is situated directly above. If it comes from the urethra, is it urine?

Yes, and no. A recent French study recruited seven women who self-reported that they squirted the equivalent to a glass of water during orgasm. Biochemical analysis of the fluid showed that two of the women were squirting urine. However, for the other five, the analysis showed that the fluid was mainly made up of urine but it also contained prostate-specific androgen (PSA) originating from the Skene’s glands. The study concluded that female ejaculation is likely to be an involuntary urine emission and that the presence of PSA is simply the residue of ‘true’ female ejaculation.

When it comes to squirting, some say they squirt out a teaspoon, others say a cupful, and some claim they squirt even more than that. Some women can squirt over and over, and some just squirt the once – it is all normal!

Getting Started

For some women, it is possible, but for others, it’s not. Our bodies all function differently, and while scientists still don’t know the ins and outs of female ejaculation, we do know that when it comes to sexuality, there is not a lot of predictability and science to back it up. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try, so what are you waiting for?

1. Set the Scene – you need to feel relaxed and comfortable. The perfect atmosphere is easily achieved through dimming the lights, lighting scented candles, and maybe playing some music. Make sure to empty your bladder before you get started so that you are comfortable to let go when the time comes.

2. Foreplay – this is vital. Remember; the G-spot won’t even be enlarged or ready for stimulation if you’re not fully aroused. So take your time getting in the mood.

3. Lube Up – the stimulation required for squirting is hard and fast, so a bit of lube will prevent friction and ensure you get the most from the experience.

4. Get to the G Spot – there are a variety of techniques to try, so it’s important to experiment and see what works for you. You might not get it the first time, but trying out different speeds, positions, and types of stimulation are all part of the fun. Once you find out what makes you squirt, you can repeat it!

5. Relax and let it go – you’re going to feel the urge to pee. Instead of holding it in or clenching, relax and push outwards instead. It can take some time and a few goes to get it right, so don’t be disheartened if nothing happens on your first go.

Need a Helping Hand?

Need a helping hand? A toy that stimulates the G-spot and clitoris simultaneously will make for greater intensity. Be sure you choose a toy that is made from high-quality, body-safe materials. Jelly and rubber vibrators should generally be avoided as they can be difficult to clean effectively. Instead, opt for toys that are made of silicone or plastic.
