Everything you want to know (and some things you don’t) about squirting
The who, what, where, when, why and HOW
You’ve heard about it, you’ve seen it in the movies, maybe you’ve even done it without even realizing what it was. At some point, everyone with or without a vagina has been curious about the mythical world of female ejaculation: squirting.
We spoke to Dr. Ronald D. Blatt, Chief Surgeon of the Manhattan Center for Vaginal Surgery and Medical Director of the Manhattan Centers for Women’s Health. With over 30 years of experience in gynecology under his belt, Dr. Blatt was able to tell us anything and everything about squirting.
What is squirting?
Simply put, “squirting” is defined as female ejaculation. It’s exactly how it sounds: the act of literally squirting liquid out of the vagina when climax is reached during sexual intercourse.
Squirting is often associated with the stimulation of the G-Spot. However, most women admit it’s something that just happens when they’re stimulated in the right way.
We don’t know much about squirting because there is little medical research explaining what it truly is and why it happens.
“There is a lot of conflicting information going around about female ejaculation, so let me start by saying not everyone is even convinced that female ejaculation can actually happen,” Dr. Blatt told us. “Some studies show it is real, others show it is not.”
What is the liquid produced when squirting?
This is probably the one thing about squirting that everyone is most curious about, and for good reason? We know that being “wet” is the vagina preparing itself for penetration as a result of stimulation, but comes out when a woman squirts? Obviously we’re not like men, who ejaculate semen, so what really is it? Dr. Blatt has the answer.
“Studies show it is a very diluted urine mixed with fluid from Skenes glands at the end of the urethral opening,” he said. “The Skenes glands are responsible for vaginal lubrication during sexual intercourse.”
What does squirting feel like?
The sensation that accompanies squirting varies from person to person. According to Dr. Blatt, the common response is that squirting feels like a very “wet orgasm.” Other women report that they feel a “liquid squirt with intensity.”
While squirting may feel like an orgasm, it technically can’t be classified as one.
“An orgasm doesn’t require a liquid release,” Dr. Blatt said. “So therefore squirting may not mean a woman has achieved a true orgasm.”
Can my partner or I do anything to cause squirting?
Like we said before, most women say squirting is just something that happens when they experience vaginal stimulation that’s just right. This means there may not be any real way to ensure squirting.
“Most women who report squirting say that they are not able to do it on command,” Dr. Blatt said. “It takes time with lots of exploration and foreplay.”
As for making yourself squirt, Dr. Blatt says that some studies show that squirting in fact can be achieved through masturbation. Only you know what kind of stimulation really works for your body, so don’t be afraid to get comfortable and try it out.
That being said, don’t be discouraged if it seems like nothing can make you squirt. There is factual evidence that shows that not every woman’s body is capable of squirting, regardless of the amount of perfect stimulation.
If you can squirt, you’re a part of a small percentage of women that can. Lucky bitch.

You know that friend? The one who's always bringing up the fact you're on Tinder, and particularly so when it comes to social outings. Somehow the topic of dating comes up, and she's quick to out you for relying on some "stupid app" (she's ~totally~ never downloaded) for romance. She and her boyfriend met IRL…
If he wants you to watch him masturbate he could be a sexual predator

It's fun to have sex! It's also fun to masturbate. It's even fun to watch your partner masturbate . . . especially when they're watching you masturbate at the same time.But if your partner sits you down, orders you not to touch yourself and asks you to watch them get themselves off, there may be…
Sorry, but you’re not his girlfriend if you can say ‘yep’ to any of these things
