SQUIRTING: What Is It, Really?
If you’ve been around enough, or watched enough pornographic material, then you’ve probably heard about squirting. It is known to be the act of a woman discharging relatively large amounts of clear fluid from the urethra during coitus or upon achieving orgasm, considered she has been stimulated in the proper areas. Because of its nature, it has been nicknamed as female ejaculation.
It has been believed that a majority of women are unable to perform squirting. However, based on the newest research conducted in the field, it has been determined that all women are anatomically equipped to handle and perform it. If this is so, then why haven’t more women experienced it? Another more pressing question also stands to be answered: what is it made of?
Many people argue that female ejaculation is nothing more than urine that has been released due to the amount of pressure experienced by the bladder. Others argue that it is completely composed of sex-related fluids, very much similar to the milky white fluid that is most commonly secreted by women upon orgasm. Both sides have argued their points, but which is true? That is what Samuel Salama and his team sought to prove.
In late 2015, a French team of researchers, led by Salama, dove into a study that aimed to determine the chemical composition of this clear fluid. The study was conducted with the participation of seven women whom have been known to experience squirting on a regular basis. After the vast amount of research and experimentation, a conclusion was finally drawn that could end the argument over its chemical composition. Which side is right? Well, they both are.
The researchers observed that all women (whom had empty bladders before initiation of sexual activity) had collected a significant amount of fluid just moments before the squirting occurred. When the chemical composition of the fluid was tested, it was found that it did, in fact, contain a majority of concentrations that are also commonly found in urine. However, the researchers also found prostatic-specific antigen (PSA), which is produced by the Skene glands, also known as the female prostate.
To cut the long story short, it was found that the squirting fluid was orgasm-related material transported through a urine-like liquid. It was determined that the act of squirting was an essentially involuntary emission during sexual activity due to the stimulation of what is known to be the “G-spot”.
Post study, however, researchers have remained baffled at the bladder’s spontaneous filling up with fluid. Today, more and more studies are being conducted in an attempt to explain the curious phenomenon.
