When aroused, some women may experience squirting, or a rather noticeable discharge of fluid. What it is exactly and where it comes from has been hotly debated: female ejaculation or adult bedwetting? Researchers are now saying that squirting is essentially involuntary urination. Squirting, on the other hand, results in a much larger gush of a clear fluid, which comes from the urethra, the duct where urine is conveyed from the bladder. The findings , which combine biochemical analyses with pelvic ultrasounds, were published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine on Christmas Eve. All of the women had empty bladders before sexual excitation, however, urine collected just before squirting showed that the bladder was filling up.
This Is What's Actually Happening When A Woman "Squirts" During Sex
Female ejaculation: Every question you ever had, answered - BBC Three
On December 24, a group of French scientists published what is probably the first medical-journal article on squirting. They gave pelvic ultrasound scans to seven women who previously reported emitting about a cup full of liquid! By administering the scans after the women peed, and then twice during sexual stimulation, they were able to conclude exactly where the liquid was coming from and what it consisted of—and, spoiler alert, it was pee. There have been plenty of studies done on female ejaculation, this is the first one, as far as I can tell, to specifically explore women who expel great gushing quantities of fluid when sex is happening. Since at least the 80s, however, there's been a lot of debate around whether or not women ejaculate at all, or if any instance of it is just an adult version of bedwetting.
Squirting Is Just Peeing, Say Scientists
Hey, cutie. Just wanted to let you know that this story originally ran in our October issue, so if you like what you see, you should probably snag a hard copy ASAP. But after scrolling through hundreds of articles, neither of you can find a definitive answer. Despite millennia of evidence that squirting is a very real thing that happens to some women during sex see the receipts, below , so much about it still remains a big fat question mark.
