Plugging in the word ’squirt’ on Google and you’ll be drawn to – if you’re not male- articles that direct you to the phenomenon of female squirting…or technically known as female ejaculation. Now the annoying aspect about this phenomenon is that a) there are women who don’t squirt and b) women who do and (some, not all) like to rub it in everyone’s face (no sexual pun intended). Then there are male oriented sites that equate squirting/female ejaculation with orgasm and they make me want to scream ‘Stop right there!’
To be short and to the point and offer a quickie summation: squirting is often associated with the G-Spot or the ‘G-Spot orgasm,’ and is apparently proportional to the amount of Skene’s glands and each women won’t have the same distribution of Skene’s glands. All over the web, there are blogs and various sexual advice sites that tend to feature squirters and some sites, like AskMen link squirting with orgasm or the intensity of orgasm with squirting which is fallacious, wrong…and…well…WRONG.
Women can orgasm and not ejaculate. There are many medical professionals who are still skeptical about female ejaculation and this is related to the lack of research. Blogs aren’t research. Personal accounts on blogs aren’t research and despite what is popular in porn, professional researchers (in the fields of urology or gynecology) aren’t easily persuaded. What does this mean? It means more research is required.
On the web, the subject of squirting vs non-squirting or the ‘freakish aspect of squirting’ has garnered some heated discussion. Personally, I can see the humor. Well from my end I can laugh with the column in Toy With Me because I’ve experienced quite tawdry and tedious attempts to squirt with partners to focus on my orgasm instead. Apparently it’s impolite to express an opinion that differs from the virtual norm. It would be interesting to conduct extensive research – no surveys (they tend to be biased) – to find out the proportion of squirters and non-squirters. Call my a tetchy little cynic, but I suspect that there are those who prefer to be squirters for the sake of belonging in a trendy group. What does that mean for the (seemingly) smaller proportion of non-squirters?
Are we abnormal?
Twenty years ago, it didn’t matter if we squirted or not, just as long as we enjoyed sex. But it seems that one needs to belong in one of two groups.If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed.
