Are You Peeing Or Squirting During Masturbation?

Hey Heather,

I masturbate quite often. I always feel like I’m going to have an orgasm, but the problem is, I don’t come like guys… I usually end up urinating. What can I do to stop urinating while masturbating?

Have you ever heard of the term “squirting?” It sounds like that’s what you might be referring to here. Squirting is female ejaculation that actually has a lot of controversy surrounding it – many people don’t believe it’s real and some say it’s just pee, but girls who experience it swear that it isn’t. Women normally don’t come the same way dudes do… in fact, many women only orgasm, with no ejaculation at all. And then there are women who, like you, experience some form of ejaculation during orgasm.

So what is really going on? I asked our friend Dr. Sherry Ross from the site HelloFlo (a monthly period care package you need to check out) for some legit medical answers. Here’s what she had to say: “Gushing, squirting, or female ejaculation are words that describe a true sexual phenomenon. When some women are sexually aroused or stimulated, there is an expulsion of fluid that comes from the glands around a women’s urethra, or anterior surface of the vagina, during or before orgasm. The exact ‘sweet spot’ is a bit of a mystery, but there are different theories there.

“Many believe that squirting happens when your G-spot is stimulated. The exact location of your G-spot can be tricky to find. It’s been reported that the G-spot is located one to three inches on the top or anterior surface of the vagina. When a finger is inserted into the top surface of the vagina, up to about the second knuckle, a slightly bumpy or rigid area can be identified. When sexually aroused, the area called the G-spot will fill with blood and appear to be swollen. Women can have an orgasm and even ejaculate if the G-spot is properly  stimulated.”

So is this what is happening to you? It’s very possible, especially considering that most women who experience this think it’s urination. Dr. Ross continued: “It has been found that 10 to 30 percent of women have, at one time or another, had a ‘gushing’ moment during orgasm. For some, the gush feels as though you are wetting the bed, and for others, it is less obvious. Others are confused that they are actually losing urine when sexually aroused.”

And for those reading this that haven’t experienced this, don’t worry. Dr. Ross says, “Not all women sexually respond to stimulation of the area known as the G-spot. Don’t worry if you have tried and failed to find the ‘right place…’ it’s no magic button!”

take care,
Heather
