The first time I heard about squirting was when I was a female and went to the Vagina Monologues. I saw a woman onstage talking about how the first time she climaxed with a man, she had fluid that was gushing out of her; it wouldn't stop and he was horrified. It changed how she felt about intimacy and orgasming with anyone.
What Is Squirting Exactly?
A big reason many people used to have this way is because squirting also called "female ejaculation," though not everyone with a vulva identifies as female just hasn't been covered in the way ejaculation for people with a penis has. Michael Ingber, a physician who has done research on the subject of squirting and is board-certified in urology and female how medicine and reconstructive surgery, tells SheKnows that squirting is simply when the ejaculation fluid comes from the urethra.
Similar to penises, vulvas have "a bit of tissue at the junction of the urethra similar to the prostate, which is near the bladder," he says. This tissue can "squirt" fluid into the urethra during sex or orgasm.
