Squirting, sometimes also known as gushing, refers to the expulsion of fluid from the urethra during sexual arousal. The term is often used, in common parlance, synonymously with ‘female ejaculation’, though analysis has shown there to be a difference between (1) the chemical structure of fluids emitted, and (2) the amount of fluid created, depending on the woman.
There is much debate about both squirting and female ejaculation, which – for education and clarification purposes – I will discuss as separate phenomena for the purposes of this post.
There is also much debate about what, exactly, these erotic fluid emissions are -and- about whether or not the expulsion of said fluids during various stages of arousal** is ‘normal’.
**The use of the word ‘arousal’ instead of ‘orgasm’ is intentional. It is common for women who squirt to do so independently of orgasm. Gush ≠ Cum, and while the two may be correlative, this is not always the case. Equating the two biological responses is a mistake. Women can orgasm without ejaculation, just as men can; and can, vise versa, ejaculate without orgasming.
First and foremost: YOU ARE NORMAL.
If you are a female and you experience squirting and/or ejaculate when you are aroused, you are perfectly normal. If you squirt as part of your orgasm, whether in the lead-up or during climax, you are normal. And if you have never squirted, have no desire to squirt, and/or are “just not built that way” – YOU ARE NORMAL.
Whether you squirt or not, whether you enjoy squirting or not, whether your experience with squirting has led to great joy or deep humiliation or any combination of emotions in between… You are normal. There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG with you.
If you have gotten this far, and wish to learn more about squirting/female ejaculation, please keep “normal” in mind and proceed.
