Squirting which some people call female ejaculation is a phenomenon that has taken over bedrooms in Kenya and beyond.
This is because couples are doing all they can to reach the ‘holy grail of sex’, squirting. While for some women squirting comes as easily as peeing others experience it only once in a lifetime or not at all.
Today we look at some interesting facts about squirting:
1. You can squirt without having an orgasm as it can happen before, during, after, or without an orgasm.
2. In 2014, squirting was banned from UK-produced pornography by The British Board of Film Classification alongside other sex acts like facesitting, fisting and strangulation.
This is because squirting was seen as an obscene act known as Urolangia as many could not tell whether the liquid being expelled was urine or vaginal fluids.
3. It has been compared to seminal fluid minus the sperm
They have been some debates about whether its actual urine or cum but as autostraddle explains, “Its chemical compound is actually similar to that of seminal fluid, sans the obvious presence of sperm itself.”
4. According to a 2013 study, squirting is more common during masturbation than during intercourse with a number of participants experiencing the sensation during anal play.
5. The liquid isn’t expelled from the vagina it is expelled through the urethra.
6. The amount expelled from the body can range from 0.3 Ml to 150 Ml.
7. Squirting is not female ejaculation
When you squirt, liquid comes through the urethra from the bladder while in ejaculation you produce a thicker and whiter fluid that comes from of the Skene’s glands, located in the vagina.
8. It doesn’t always look like it does in porn. As we all know porn does exaggerate things and some adult movie actresses have been accused of putting water in their vagina and squirting it out.
9. It comes from stimulating the G-spot in a come-hither motion
“The G-spot swells when aroused, so it’s best to try to go to work on it when you’re already aroused from foreplay or clitoral stimulation,” says Marissa Nelson a certified sex therapist.
10. Not everyone squirts and it’s okay.
According to the International Society for Sexual Medicine, between 10 and 50 per cent of women ejaculate during sex.
