Squirting Is Actually Peeing, FYI

Do YOU squirt when you orgasm?

Fact: Females are capable of ejaculating, and they do so involuntarily. Not all women excrete liquids during orgasm, though. Just 10 to 40 percent of females "squirt"—slang for female ejaculation. And the amount of fluid? Thirty to 150 mL, according to The Independent.

But what exactly is squirted, and where does the liquid come from? Some scientists and researchers believe that the liquid is actually pee. The clear fluid does come out of the urethra.

The hypothesis was tested by having seven women who claim to squirt give their urine samples and have an ultrasound to confirm that their bladders were emptied. The women, with their partners or on their own, got themselves stimulated. They had their second ultrasound to see if the bladder remained empty or not. Then they continued with the sexual activity until they achieved orgasm and ejaculation. The ejaculate was collected and another ultrasound was performed.

The first ultrasound showed that all their bladders were emptied right after peeing (as it's supposed to be). The second showed that their bladders were filling up, and the third showed that their bladders were emptied again. This suggests that the ejaculate is urine, at least for the participants.

The researchers did a biochemical analysis of the liquid, and found that two women released urine. The other five released fluid that was urine for the most part, with prostate-specific androgen (PSA) from the Skene's glands, glands near the urethra which may also be near the G-spot or a part of it. The presence of PSA is a residue of "true" female ejaculation, according to the scientists.

So if you squirt a lot, know that a large volume of the fluid is pee, and a smaller one is from the G-spot. But don't be embarrassed about you peeing on the bed! Squirting is an indicator of how awesome the sex is. ;)
