General consensus seems to be that squirting or gushing is the release of some fluid during or just before orgasm. However, not all women experience any sort of ejaculation of liquid at orgasm. Another study found that those who reported orgasming from inside the vagina ie, G-spot were more likely to report a spurt of fluid at the moment of orgasm. Similarly to the existence or non-existence of the G-spot , the chemical makeup of the liquid squirted, or female ejaculate which may or may not be something different , has long been the subject of debate. A firm conclusion about what it is and why it happens, and why it happens in some women and not others, has yet to be reached. But certain aspects of the debate do seem to have been decided by scientists, although not necessarily by women.

Female ejaculation (squirting): why do women squirt and how to do it
For a start, is it really gism shooting out of your vagina, or are you just peeing all over the place? Does it feel nice? And OMG can women get themselves pregnant with their own lady-semen and will this eliminate the male race!? But perhaps most importantly of all, just how do you get a ticket to the wettest party in town and teach yourself to squirt? But word on the street is if you have a vagina instead, you can also ejaculate similarly gloopy fluids from your urethra too. Say what? We put the question to our favourite health expert Dr Roger Henderson and he came up with a suitably formal response.
Female ejaculation comes in two forms, scientists find
Female ejaculation is when a female's urethra expels fluid during sex. It can happen when a female becomes sexually aroused, but there is not necessarily an association with having an orgasm. Scientists do not fully understand female ejaculation, and there is limited research on how it works and its purpose.
