What is Squirting ? – An in depth View.
The mystery of female squirting has sparked countless never-ending debates. Is it even real? Doctors and the general public alike, have been asking themselves the very same questions. And, at last, it seems like we may actually have an answer. According to recent scientific research, at least a third of all women have experienced female ejaculation at some point of their life. However, most of them said it only happened a couple of times.
What is Squirting?
First, let’s talk a bit about female ejaculation itself. What is squirting? This is a phenomenon in which fluid shoots out of the vagina during orgasm. Squirting and gushing are terms often used to describe this somewhat controversial subject. Over time, erotic novels and porn films have familiarized the general public with squirting that most men think every woman is capable of ejaculating. In fact, many women think so too. This has lead to a lot of misinformation and prejudice being spread. But, as always, the answer lies in science. Numerous scientific studies have been conducted over the years and although it’s difficult to draw a single conclusion, it’s possible to define what female ejaculation exactly is.
Scientific Research and Studies
A group of renowned French doctors published a study in 2014 where seven women were given ultrasound scans before and after ejaculating. Surprisingly, the scans suggested that the women were simply urinating. However, doctors argued that prostatic secretions were normal during female ejaculation. This has resulted in another analysis. One year later, an independent scientist suggested the 7 women believed that they were ejaculating when, in fact, the fluid that five of them produced was urine. The remaining two women, on the other hand, produced PSA. This is a chemical called prostate specific antigen. Clearly different from urine, PSA comes from tiny structures near the urinary pipe of the female body.
Another study, the famous Masters and Johnson lab experiment (William H. Masters and Virginia Johnson were pioneers when it comes to researching human sexual response) pointed to a different conclusion. They subjected over 400 women to tests and failed to record a single one ejaculating at climax.
In the early 1990s, a Czech scientist named f Stanislav Kratochvil found that 6% of Czech women ejaculate during climax.
Clearly, these conflicting reports are not enough to draw a single conclusion. However, more recent research suggests something completely different. While most doctors have been aware of this phenomenon for a few decades, they used to assume the fluid was urine, but what they failed to take into consideration is the fact that all women leak a little urine during sex. While this may sound shocking to some, it is actually completely natural. This also happens when we sneeze, laugh or cough. We may not notice it, but it most definitely does. Now it is considered that female ejaculation fluid is not urine, but a different “juice” secreted by the equivalent of the female prostate.
Female ejaculate fluid, unlike urine, does not contain creatinine or urea. It is usually clear-colored and doesn’t stain the sheets yellow. Perhaps the biggest breakthrough, when it comes to researching the phenomenon of squirting, occurred about a decade ago when an Austrian doctor named Florian Wimpissinger (that is his actual name, not a pun) found that the female “squirting” ejaculate was chemically different from urine.
How Much Fluid is Produced During Female Ejaculation?
Although female ejaculation has been fairly researched over the past couple of decades, our society does not know much about this phenomenon. The most common misconception is the amount of fluid produced. Men seem to falsely believe (probably thanks to porn) that women who ejaculate are able to produce liters upon liters of fluid while climaxing. Obviously, this is not the case. In fact, the amount of fluid typically secreted would probably fill up half a coffee cup, at most.
What Effect Does Squirting Have on Men?
Men and women tend to view this phenomenon differently. Since pornographic content has become so widely available in recent years, thanks to the world wide web, an entire sub-genre of porn has risen – squirting. While everyone knows pornography is not an accurate representation of sex between two human beings, squirting seems to have stayed a bit of a touchy subject even among the biggest of porn enthusiasts, for want of a better term. Most men are turned on by it, but not a lot of them know what it is, how it works and why many women will never be able to ejaculate.
Since the amount of fluid produced is the most common misconception, men are inclined to believe their wives, girlfriends and partners are able to produce gallons of this fluid, as long as they get stimulated properly. While it may be true that a woman needs specific stimulation to reach a “squirting” orgasm, some women are simply incapable of ejaculating. In fact, it would be physically impossible to hold as much fluid as pornographic films suggest in one’s body. Whether it’s trick photography, good recording angles or something else – we’ll leave that up to porn enthusiasts out there to find out but one thing is for sure, a woman is not capable of producing that much ejaculate fluid during orgasm.
What Effect Does Squirting Have on Women?
Women, on the other hand, have different experiences. Most of them feel anxious and embarrassed once they discover they’re capable of squirting. Perhaps this is because most of them think the fluid they produce is actually urine – this may lead them to assume what they’re doing is wrong or nasty. Research indicates that this could be a separate psychological phenomenon – women link squirting to childhood prohibitions about not wetting themselves.
Quite a lot of these women go through life avoiding sexual relationships, some of them even have unpleasant experiences with men who react negatively when they ejaculate during climax. However, it’s safe to assume that is not the reaction of most men nowadays. Squirting has, in a way, become a part of our culture and, if nothing, that’s one thing we have to thank porn for. At least women don’t have to feel uncomfortable about squirting any more.
