Squirting Is NOT The Same Thing As Peeing! (NSFW)

A few weeks ago a website released an article titled “Scientists Say ‘Squirters’ Are Actually Just Peeing Everywhere.”

Squirters and their partners were heard from all corners of the world yelling, “It’s not pee!” Any squirter will tell you the fluid does not smell, taste, or look like pee.

Yet that short, clickbait-style article explains a recent study by a team of French scientists who analyzed the excretions of seven subjects, all self-proclaimed squirters, with the study finding that “Squirting is essentially the involuntary emission of urine during sexual activity, although a marginal contribution of prostatic secretions to the emitted fluid often exists.”

Just a few weeks before that article came out, I released my book Squirting: It’s Easier Than You Think: A Holistic Guide to Female Pleasure with easy tips for achieving female ejaculation. Horrible timing, huh? Well maybe not if we can undo the harm the anti-squirting article has caused.

In some of the earliest writings on sexuality, prominent Roman physician Galen, wrote about a “thin fluid that manifestly flows when they [women] experience the greatest pleasure in coitus.” Other early writings on the subject include the Indian Kama Sutra and ancient Japanese erotic works, which also mention a fluid coming from women.

Last year, in an episode of Sex With Sunny Megatron, the sex blogger/pleasure advocate urinated in one glass, ejaculated in another, and took both to a lab. The ejaculate was identified as nearly IDENTICAL to male seminal fluid—without the sperm, of course.

Several other resources say the fluid has been analyzed previously, and it contains high levels of glucose, the enzyme prostatic acidic phosphatase, and low levels of urea and creatinine. A woman’s typical urine contains high levels of urea and creatinine, and no prostatic acidic phosphatase or glucose.

The French study the website wrote about only included seven participants, so it’s not exactly a representative sample size, and even the study concludes the prostate-specific antigen was present in five out of the seven post-squirting samples while it was not present in the before-squirting sample. This still makes female ejaculation different from urine, even if their study was not in agreement with other studies on the amount and types of chemicals all present in female ejaculate.

Female ejaculate could possibly be the fluid urine mostly consists of, but it doesn’t make it pee. Seems these scientist’s theories are just that—theories, a long way from fact. This is by far not a conclusive study.

There are many reputable sources which conflict with this newest study. You can check out this information from Columbia Health, this story from Psychology Today, this study from Sandra R. Leiblum, PhD and Rachel Needle, MS or this study and this study published on the US National Institute of Medicine National Institutes of Health’s PubMed.gov.

While we can debate the exact makeup of female ejaculation, the real problem with this latest study is not even its accuracy or if other sources are inaccurate, it’s how the discussion adversely affects female sexuality. It seems like another attempt to make women feel ashamed or embarrassed of their sexuality. Even if it’s similar in composition to pee (it’s not exactly the same—ALL studies are confirming that), a squirting orgasm is one of the best orgasms a woman can have.

Articles such as what this website published make women feel ashamed or embarrassed about their orgasms, which can already be difficult for woman to have to begin with. One of the reasons women struggle with orgasming is because they worry about how they smell, taste, or look. We’ve just given women another reason to worry. Now when an orgasm is feeling over-the-top amazing, and fluid is starting to gush out of a woman, she will become embarrassed, ashamed, and think she is just peeing, encouraging her to hold back when the feeling surfaces in the future. As I talk about in my book, women often don’t squirt because they hold it back.

We still live in a society where male sexual pleasure is encouraged and a female’s is not. But it’s partially the female’s fault. After writing my book, more men than women have approached me and wanted to know more about squirting. Based on the people I’ve talked to and even the reviews I’ve received on my book, more men have read my book than women, even though I primarily wrote this book for women. Men seem more excited about the book because they are learning how a woman works, particularly during sex. Men are interested and excited about providing women pleasure. Women need to relax, embrace their pleasure, and not worry about what’s within the fluid they are expelling during an amazing orgasm.

I encourage women to find out the enjoyment of a squirting orgasm for themselves. TC mark
