By Helen Thomson. Come to think of it, the answer may be best kept to yourself. You may have heard that it was banned from being shown in British porn films last year.
Like coconut water, culottes, and CrossFit, squirting is having a moment. Squirting is when fluid comes jetting out of a woman's vagina, often accompanying orgasm. But not for kids!
Woman A: I had been doing some research on squirting and one thing that came up a lot was to just let go and let your body do what it wanted while you were having an orgasm, so I tried it. At first, it felt like I had to pee and so I wanted to hold it. But when I just let go, I realized that I could squirt.
A dozen women, my then-partner among them, shooting arcs of liquid into the air from their genitals for the very first time, in unison. What had begun 90 minutes earlier as a fairly granular anatomy lesson in a Brooklyn townhouse had seamlessly morphed into something resembling the fountain show at the Bellagio. Up until this moment, I harbored serious doubts that the well-muscled man wearing colorful briefs and the hairstyle of a Lenape warrior could guide this diverse group of women and their partners to opening the floodgates for the first time, much less at the same time.
The way women experience sexual pleasure is hard to deconstruct. For guys, climax is usually linked to ejaculation. And these explosive orgasms are often understood to be unique to the male sexual experience.
But how does it happen, what happens exactly and what causes it? Female ejaculation is strongly linked to G-spot simulation, that is, stimulation of the internal area at the front of the vagina. Your G-spot can be stimulated in any number of ways, either through intercourse, foreplay or with a vibrator — but it can take some practice to find your sweet spot.
Fair warning, this article will make reference to squirting, gushing and the G-spot. While pornography featuring female ejaculation has been banned in the UKit represents the third most searched category in Australia and has been a consistent point of curiosity throughout history. Many of you may be surprised to learn that females are capable of ejaculation, however, the phenomena has been written about from as early as 4 Century China, where the liquids excreted during orgasm were believed to be imbued with mystical and healthful properties. As it turns out, during orgasm some women per cent experience the involuntary emission of fluid ranging from 30 to mL.
