What Does “Squirt” or “Cream” Mean?
“Squirting” or “creaming” is widely assumed to be related to female ejaculation. The topic of female ejaculation has only recently become widely discussed and researched.
Recent research has focused on identifying the source of female ejaculation and determining its prevalence in females.
But historically, this phenomenon has not been widely discussed. In the past, it has even been confused with incontinence.
Today, we know that squirting and female ejaculation are not only possible but are also becoming more common.
As a result of increased knowledge on the subject, people have now started distinguishing between the terms “squirting” and “creaming”.
These terms refer to the two types of scenarios where females can expel liquid from their vaginas during sex.
And while these terms have often been used interchangeably, they are distinctly different in origin and the type of liquid that gets released from the vagina.
Creaming vs Squirting
Creaming is also known as “cumming” or female ejaculation and refers to the expulsion of a thick and milky white liquid that gets ejected from the vagina at the point of orgasm.
Creaming also refers to the whitish discharge that can be present during arousal, which lubricates the vaginal area for penetration.
Some people use the term female ejaculation as a broad term to encompass cumming, squirting, and female ejaculation. But female ejaculation or cumming and squirting is not the same thing.
If you think of female vs male cum, the liquid present during creaming resembles the ejaculation fluid of a man, whereas squirting liquid more closely resembles urine.
In fact, many women have confused squirting liquid with urine and fear that they may have urinated during sex. But, squirting is distinctly different from urination.
Squirting refers to the release of a clear liquid, usually in larger quantities in response to sexual stimulation. Squirting liquid not only resembles urine in look but also in its composition.
The liquid that gets expelled from squirting differs from urine in that it contains a prostatic-specific antigen (PSA) that is produced by the Skene glands or the female prostate.
Squirting liquid is produced by the bladder and Skene’s glands and gets expelled through the urethra. The liquid present when a woman creams is also released via the urethra.
Squirting often happens due to G-spot stimulation, but it can occur in the absence of an orgasm.
Similarly, while creaming often does occur at the point of orgasm, it doesn’t always. Creaming can refer to when the discharge is expelled at the point of orgasm, but it can also occur prior to an orgasm as a way of lubricating the vaginal area.
At this point, it is important to note that “cumming” can both refer to creaming at the point of orgasm, or to the orgasm itself, even if she doesn’t cream.
But in some cases, people distinguish between orgasm and cumming.
In these cases, the difference between female cum and orgasm is that one refers to the point of sexual climax without the expulsion of liquid, whereas the other refers to a white vaginal discharge that accompanies the orgasm.
Why Do Some Girls Squirt and Cream?
Many people believe that some women just have a more inclination to squirt or cream during sex, than others.
A lot of people think that there is a physical component that leads some people to squirt while others do not.
For this reason, it has been believed that women who are capable of squirting have a special “squirting gland”.
Similarly, many people believe that female ejaculation is something that is reserved for a select few.
Some women also believe that it is an innate talent or something that you are born with.
But, it is important to remember that any woman is capable of achieving these types of experiences.
In fact, there are squirting coaches out there that teach women this skill daily. Many of these coaches have a high success rate in teaching females the art of squirting.
Also, it has been found that a lot of the females who do squirt during sex, are self-taught and don’t squirt because it is an innate skill they were born with.
So if everyone can do it, why don’t some women?
The biggest thing that holds women back is embarrassment or a lack of proper stimulation. In the UK, sexual displays of squirting have been banned for being “obscene”.
This points to the stigma associated with female ejaculation, which often deters women from trying it.
Also, some women don’t get the right type of stimulation from their partners.
Or, they can’t “let go” enough during the sex act to experience the wide range of experiences they are capable of, including ejaculation and squirting.
There is also a lack of knowledge on the subject. But, any woman can learn to squirt or ejaculate with the proper technique.
This usually requires a combination of G-spot stimulation and the stimulation of other erogenous zones. It also depends on a strong pelvic floor, which can be achieved by practicing Kegels.
Research suggests that less than half of women ejaculate and this is mostly because they don’t know how to. They also don’t know that they are capable of it.
For this reason, it remains an unexplored avenue for many women.
But, it is important to note that those who do experience it has linked it to higher rates of sexual satisfaction.
How to Know if You Squirt or Cream
How to Know if You Squirt
The sensation of squirting has often been associated with the feeling of wanting to pee. This is why many women hold back when they experience it. They are scared of wetting the bed.
If you empty your bladder before attempting to squirt, and you feel this sensation ensuring sex, the chances are that you are on your way to squirt.
Of course, if this is followed by approximately 150mls of odorless, colorless liquid, you know that you have successfully squirted.
How to Know if You Cream
If you want to know whether you have creamed, you first have to ask yourself whether you had an orgasm. If you had an orgasm and there is a white, milky discharge, you may have creamed.
But, it is important to note that this may be the release of the male’s ejaculation fluid too. So, how do you know if you have creamed?
The sensation feels similar to squirting. It will trickle out of your body like a warm fluid.
Another clue that you may have creamed is observing a whitish discharge in your underwear before or after an orgasm.
Can You Squirt and Cream at the Same Time?
Since these processes occur independently from one another, they can happen simultaneously in response to sexual stimulation.
But for most women, these processes will rather happen in succession.
Creaming is part of the vagina’s natural lubrication process and will often happen before or during orgasm. Squirting can happen during any time of the arousal process.
So, it is entirely possible to squirt and then cream or the other way around.
And yes, because both can accompany your orgasm, and are produced by different parts of the body, they can happen simultaneously.
This is often referred to as gushing.
This refers to the process where you’re squirting fluid combined with your female ejaculation fluid and both are trying to find their way through the urethra’s opening, resulting in a gushing feeling.
If these sensations accumulate and accompany an orgasm it can lead to intense feelings of pleasure and a lot of liquid coming out of the vagina in a combination of squirting fluid and ejaculation fluid.
After reading this, you should know that squirting involves the expulsion of a liquid that is similar to a watered-down version of urine, whereas creaming is a thick, whitish fluid that gets released to lubricate the vagina or at the point of orgasm.
You should also know that you can experience either of these sensations with a little practice. You can even experience them within the same sexual session.
If you haven’t explored this yet, what are you waiting for? There is a reason why the number of women who ejaculate and squirt has increased in recent years.
Not only does this provide a new sexual experience, but it has also been linked to increased pleasure in the bedroom.
Difference Between Cream and Squirt (FAQs)
Why can’t some girls squirt?
All girls can squirt. If their bladders and urethras work that is. It is just a matter of knowing how to do it. Squirting involves technique, G-spot stimulation, and a strong pelvic floor.
The most important thing is to be adequately aroused and to receive G-spot stimulation alongside various other forms of stimulation.
The stimulation of G-spot stimulates the glands that produce squirting liquid.
You should also practice Kegels to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.
This will allow you to push these muscles down (known as bearing down) and increase your chances of squirting.
Can old women squirt?
Yes. There have been accounts of women in their 70s still being capable of squirting.
But, women’s sexual lives are affected differently during menopause, which may affect their sexual abilities and the strength of their pelvic floor muscles.
It should be noticed that squirting should not be mistaken for incontinence when women are a bit older.
Researchers have made this mistake in the past but today we know that there is a big difference between squirting and urinating.
But, if a woman is still sexually active, the chances are that her ability to squirt will largely remain intact.
Is it better to squirt or cream?
When it comes to squirting or creaming, one is not better than the other.
Some women like to expel more liquid, as is the case with squirting, because it may indicate to their partner that they experienced more pleasure from the sexual activity.
Other women prefer creaming because they don’t want to mess up their sheets or expel too much liquid.
When it comes to expulsing liquid from the vagina, it all comes down to personal preference.
You may even prefer to engage in whatever your partner prefers. The best thing is to play around and find out what feels best for you.
