Squirting is the seventh most searched term on Porn Hub and has recently even been banned overseas in the United Kingdom. But where does the liquid that comes out during squirting orginate from? On a search to find this answer, a team of French scientists conducted a study, where they took 7 females who had reported to have squirt an average of one cup of vaginal fluid during intercourse.
The scientists conducted pelvic ultrasound exams on the female subjects, before having had any sexual stimulation. The female subjects would then continue to get sexually aroused either through personal masturbation or sexual relations with a partner. Once that part of the research process was complete, they were administered another pelvic ultrasound exam as part of the study.
The ultrasounds from each female subject were analyzed and compared and ultimately revealed the origin of the fluid released during squirting; the women’s bladders, which had significantly less fluid after sexual arousal aka when it comes down to it, squirt juice is just mostly pee. So, while all this time people have thought that they have been singing in the vagina rain, they were really receiving a shower of a different kind – a golden one.
It was previously believed that the fluid ejaculated from a female during squirting originated from the female prostate gland. However, the results of the research done on these bed wetters clearly shows otherwise. “The present data based on ultrasonographic bladder monitoring and biochemical analyses indicate that squirting is essentially the involuntary emission of urine during sexual activity, although a marginal contribution of prostatic secretions to the emitted fluid often exists.” via: Salama S, Boitrelle F, Gauquelin A, Malagrida L, Thiounn N, and Desvaux P.
