Female ejaculation: What exactly is squirting and how can you use it to enrich your sex life?

Although we all had sex education as a class in school, we reach adulthood without getting answers to some very important questions. Can men fake an orgasm? Do all women come during sex? And is there really such a thing as female ejaculation? If you’ve ever watched porn or looked into the topic of female orgasm in more detail, then you’ve probably heard of the term squirting. Although it was talked about more than 2,000 ago, the topic is still hotly debated and only very few people know what exactly is meant by it. But that’s over now! What is behind it, how exactly does squirting work and can every woman experience it? You will find the answers right below!

Female ejaculation: What is squirting?

female ejaculation squirting what is sex life

Despite what you may have heard, you don’t need a penis to ejaculate. Female ejaculation really exists and is still known as “squirting”. The phenomenon was described several centuries ago in different cultures and even Aristotle dealt with it. The term comes from the English word “squirt” and means something like “to cum”. Thus, female ejaculation occurs when women squirt a fluid from the Skene glands (the female prostate) during sexual arousal and by stimulating the G-zone. The fluid is a watery, milky secretion that contains calcium, glucose, prostatic phosphatase, and the hormone serotonin, among other substances.

A common belief is that the fluid in squirting is nothing more than urine. However, this is not true. The secretion does come from the urethra, and you may excrete a little urine in the process, but it is not just urine. Because the tissue around the urethra is perfused and presses on the bladder, you feel like you have to pee. So female ejaculation is an absolutely normal process and nothing to be ashamed of as women.

Can every woman squirt?

Whether every woman can experience female ejaculation is unfortunately impossible to say across the board. After all, all bodies are different and the intensity of orgasm is also different for each of us. And with which poses we come during sex or what really turns us on is even more different. There are indeed women who ejaculate unconsciously, expelling lots of fluid. Others try in vain.

In a survey of 233 women, about 126 people (56%) said they had experienced female ejaculation at least once. For you to squirt during sex, you need to pay attention to two important aspects. You or your partner should stimulate your G-zone and, of course, you must let go at the right time.

What does squirting feel like?

Okay, we’ve explained to you what exactly squirting is. But now you might be wondering what female ejaculation feels like. Again, this varies greatly from person to person. For some women, it feels like a usual orgasm, while others feel a rising warmth and trembling in the vagina. And then there are those women who don’t even notice it. But they all have one thing in common – they all find squirting pleasurable and think that female ejaculation has improved their sex life.

However, for the ultimate sex experience, you should learn to let go at the right moment. Since the secretion drains through the urethra, squirting feels like we’re about to pee. And that’s exactly why many stop. A little tip from us – go to the bathroom just before sex and then engage in the experience.

Getting female ejaculation: With these tips it may work

As already mentioned, female ejaculation depends first and foremost on the stimulation of the G-zone. And we all know that this is not an easy task. This is because the G-spot is not a separate “point” in your vagina, but part of your “clitoral network”. So the G-spot is located differently for every woman, and if you or your partner finds it, you may experience squrting.

How to get a female ejaculation? Practice, practice and practice again! As they say – practice makes perfect. Squirting isn’t like riding a bike, but once you learn what works for you and turns you on, your chances are definitely higher. And here’s a small, but subtle tip on how you or your partner can find and stimulate the G-spot: Take two fingers, put them inside your vagina, and move them in the “come here” position.

For an easier process to the front wall of your vagina, you can also try using a slightly curved vibrator. Once you get the feeling that you need to pee, then you’ve done it and you just need to let go and let the ejaculate run free.

The key is to relax, enjoy the experience, and try different techniques until you find what works for you. Sex is about having fun first and foremost, and you definitely shouldn’t pressure yourself or your partner. Squirting can definitely enrich your sex life, but it’s not a must to enjoy sex!
