“Cumming” and “squirting” are words often used to describe female ejaculation during orgasm, but did you know that both of these acts are two completely different things?
That’s right. If you’ve been wondering what’s the difference between cumming and squirting, I am here to lay down the truth.
The fact of the matter is, female sexuality has been widely misunderstood for centuries, and even in this day mystery still surrounds that of female pleasure. It wasn’t until recent decades that scientists and researchers acknowledged women’s ability to ejaculate during orgasm, yet much confusion remains about how this happens and where these substances come from.
What’s even more perplexing to researchers is the act of squirting which plays no role in procreation but apparently provides extreme pleasure to the woman who experiences it. To discover the origins of squirting and the fluid that is expelled during the act, French Gynecologist Samual Salama led a team of French researchers into a study of 7 women who recorded expelling up to a cupfull of fluid during squirting on a regular basis.
Pelvic ultrasounds were taken as the women emptied their bladders before becoming aroused, and another set of scans were used just before the women reached climax showing that the bladder refilled. Upon the squirting orgasm, the last ultrasound was conducted showing that the bladder completely emptied during the process, thus proving the origin of the squirted fluid does indeed come from the bladder.
The fluid was collected in a bag and tested, and the results revealed the continents of the fluid to be equivalent to the makeup of urine (don’t freak out fellas). In 5 of the women, however, traces of PSA (prostatic-specific antigen) were found within the liquid, signifying that the Skene glands empty the substance that is a component of “true” female ejaculate into the bladder during arousal. The ultimate conclusion of this study is that squirting is the act of involuntarily urination during orgasm. These results were published in the “Journal of Sexual Medicine” on December 24th, 2014, dispelling the minimal research done previously to prove the origin of female ejaculation.
So what exactly is the difference between squirting and cumming? Squirting is the act of expelling clear fluid from the bladder that builds up during arousal, while cumming is “true” female ejaculation that is accompanied by a creamy white substance that is released into the vagina. Whether cream or squirt female pleasure has an amazing display. The more you know.
