Is Squirting a Myth

Is Squirting a Myth?

Squirting is one of those sexual topics that women just can’t seem to agree on. Some say it’s real, and have experienced it. Others say they think it’s a myth, as they haven’t experienced it. And most women may secretly be keen to try it. 

Whichever category you find yourself in, the reality is that little is known about the mechanics of squirting. Despite this, there are some facts about squirting that may surprise you. So keep reading, and find the answer once and for all to the question “Is squirting a myth?”

What this article covers:

Is Squirting a Myth?

Let’s get right to the question at hand. Is squirting a myth? No, it’s real, but not all women have done it. And although you may want to try it, the sad fact is it may not happen for you. 

That’s because we are all unique, and what’s ‘normal’ for one woman will be unusual for the next. Squirting is completely normal and natural though and isn’t a sign of any abnormality. It’s not clear why some women squirt while others don’t. 

But even women who claim to have squirted, admit that it doesn’t happen every time they have sex. So is squirting a pleasure indicator? No. And factors other than biology are likely at play here.

The most obvious cause could be technique. If you have multiple partners or even one partner, you won’t have sex in exactly the same way every time. The position, or the angle of penetration, will differ. You’ll be more aroused at times than at other times. There are so many possible factors to consider.

What we do know is that stimulation of the g-spot has been suggested as a possible trigger for squirting. This can happen during an orgasm, or even before or just after. Because male/female sex, especially missionary position sex, doesn’t allow for adequate g-spot stimulation, this can hinder squirting.

How Do Women Squirt?

Researchers suggest that squirting originates with a female version of the “prostate’, known as the Skene’s (or paraurethral) glands. Stimulating the g-spot, situated nearby the Skene’s glands location, may initiate this response.

Hydration Is Key

Why, do we hear you ask? Does squirting dehydrate you? It’s more a case of the other way around. If you’re dehydrated, you may not be able to squirt. 

Although public opinion on this differs, it’s a fact that your body needs fluids to produce fluids. So if you’re dehydrated, you’ll produce fewer fluids of all kinds, including squirt. Just in case this is all that’s stopping you from spurting with delight, make sure you’re always hydrated before some time between the sheets.

And no, alcohol doesn’t count. It can actually cause you to become dehydrated, by removing water and essential nutrients from your body. So if you want to up your fluid intake without looking like a party pooper, opt for a mocktail instead.

Why Don’t All Women Squirt?

That’s a difficult question to answer. Asking why not all women squirt is as productive as asking “why do women cry when they orgasm?” or “do all girls shake when they orgasm?’ All women are different. Some cry when they orgasm. Some shake when they orgasm. And yes, some squirt.

But until more is known about the mechanism of squirting we won’t understand why some women don’t. There;’s a real possibility, though, that it may be dependent on technique. So if you’re eager to experience squirting for yourself, trying out new sex positions won’t hurt! 

And Is Female Ejaculation a Myth?

Another one of the female ejaculation myths and facts we need to address surrounds the topic of what female ejaculation actually is. This stems from a misunderstanding of the terminology

Why should men be the only ones to ejaculate? Not only can women ejaculate, but they can do so in different ways. So is female ejaculation a myth? Certainly not. But when we say female ejaculation, we don’t mean the same process as a man undergoes when he ejaculates. 

Female ejaculation can take two forms, and while some women experience one or the other or even both, others may not have done either. Female ejaculation as a broader term includes squirting a clear fluid (squirt) and secreting a creamy, white substance (cum). 

The latter may be the more common form of female ejaculation. And while they don’t have to occur together, that is also possible, too. But both of these can go unnoticed during sex, and this may be why many women consider it a myth.

How Can You Ejaculate Without Knowing?

As unbelievable as it sounds, girls can cum without knowing. Unless it’s a very large amount, and your partner is on the lookout for it, it’s unlikely that either one of you will notice in the heat of the moment. 

This is especially true of the creamier, less gushing form of female ejaculation. Squirting tends to produce a relatively significant volume of fluid. But the creamier cum is not nearly as voluminous.  

And after the fact, any post-coital flow that exits your vagina may contain your partner’s sexual fluids or even lube. So it’s not too easy to identify what belonged to whom. And really, it doesn’t matter. 

All that counts is that you enjoyed yourself, regardless of whether you ejaculated or squirted. Just as women do enjoy sex without an orgasm, so can women enjoy sex without obvious signs of ejaculation. 


Whether or not you have ever squirted, there’s no denying that it adds a bit of excitement to a sexual encounter or even solo sex. 

If you’re intrigued by the idea of squirting fluids when you climax, that’s perfectly normal. If it isn’t for you, that’s okay too. But squirting appears to be real, and just one of the wonderful things that women’s bodies can do in the ecstasy of the moment.
