Squirting happens when, during high levels of arousal, fluid is ejected out the urethra, explains sexologist Marla Renee Stewart, M.A., sexpert for Lovers. This fluid generally comes from the bladder as well as the Skene’s glands, which are right above the G-spot. Those who squirt usually feel a sense of release and pleasure, which may or may not be accompanied by orgasm—aptly called a squirting orgasm—when the fluid is gushing.
The most common route to squirting is stimulation of the G-spot, which is the sensitive area on the upper wall of the vagina, says Good Vibrations staff sexologist Carol Queen. Though some people can squirt through clitoral stimulation alone, others may prefer the combination of clitoral and G-spot stimulation offered with the best sex toys for squirting.
