Is There a Difference Between Squirting and Cuming?Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I am 40 years old and I have always enjoyed sex a lot. I get wet really fast, so is that cum for a woman? I have only this year found out about squirting, and had never done it before, and found out about it from a man, who I was sex chating with, of all people to find out about it from. So is squirting the same thing as a woman cumming?

Squirting is a form of cumming, its like a jet stream. Just because you get wet, that is not cum. Just like a man, true female ejaculate comes from the urethra, If you are getting wet, that is lube secreted by the vaignal walls as they contract from being excited.. Cum, wether it is pressurized (sp) enough to be squirting (which can go feet away from you and be a little or a lot), or just like a steady stream or even a few drops coming out, its from your urethra.

There's an enormous difference. I would say that if a woman who was having a good time having sex, and achieved a normal orgasm (let's say from being touched -no oral, no penile penetration) so every drop of fluid in her was her own, she would probably not fill more than a table-spoon. It's pretty much impossible to say how much fluid a woman who Squirts produces, but it seemed like a lot. I mean... like a Pint.

Hmm... you're 40, and from your post I get the impression that you think that feeling pleasure, and getting juicy is the same as an orgasm? I hope that's not the case... it's good that you're feeling pleasure and good that you're producing natural lubricant... but this does not constitute an orgasm.

Dont forget Garnet and OP...you can have an orgasm and not cum....As for female ejaculate your right there usually isnt much, unless it is squirting, and most of the porns you see with a woman squirting...it aint cum coming out of that hole.

just my two cents worth, but girls can squirt like in porno's, first hand experience, soaked me and about a two foot by two foot puddle on the bed. when a female ejaculates it is a type of cumming, however they can also cum other ways without actually ejaculating....and you will know if ur cumming, atleast you should, i do, all the girls im with know when they are.....

Trust me, Boyzni... I'm very familiar with the difference between a woman squirting and a woman who is "just" having an orgasm.

Yes, Charla. There IS a difference between Female Ejaculation (which is more commonly referred to colloquially as "squirting") and what we commonly know as "cumming."

Surveys on the subject suggest that most women have only had the experience of the standard "clitoral" orgasm. As a result, that variation of orgasm is what women are most typically referring to when they say/feel that they are "cumming." There is also what is known as a "vaginal" orgasm. The difference between a "clitoral" and a "vaginal" orgasm is where you are being stimulated to achieve orgasm, rather where you feel the orgasm.

The clitoris has a central role in elevating feelings of sexual tension. During sexual excitement that ensues from its stimulation, the clitoris swells and changes position. The blood vessels through the entire pelvic region also swell, causing engorgement and creating a feeling of fullness and sexual hypersensitivity. Additionally, the inner vaginal lips swell and change shape. For some women, however, the outer third of their vagina is also very sensitive. When stimulated during intercourse or other vaginal penetration, these women can orgasm. This would be the more rare event known as a vaginal orgasm.

Enough stimulation of (or around) the clitoris and -- for some women -- pressure on the cervix or other sensitive areas cause pelvic fullness and body tension to build up to a peak. Orgasm is the point at which all the tension is suddenly released, usually in a series of involuntary and pleasurable muscular contractions, that may be felt in the vagina, uterus, and/or rectum, although it may be worthwhile to note that some women do experience orgasms (i.e., "cum") without such contractions (simply a sudden release of the tension).

"Squirting" refers to the expulsion of noticeable amounts of clear fluid by females from the Skene's gland and/or urethra during orgasm. While the exact source of the fluid is unknown for certain, it seems that -- where we can successfully get it out -- we can most reliably do so through patient massage or other stimulation of the urethral sponge (frequently credited as being the "Grafenberg-spot" or "G-spot"). The ejaculation/squirting that ultimately ensues can range anywhere from a light trickle or a few rapid-succession spritzes of clear fluid during the orgasm (kind of what you might see stream from an under-pressurized water fountain at your local park), to a full-tilt, all-out blast, lasting several seconds, that will soak and saturate a mattress (and her partner, if he's not forewarned of its pending arrival) for several hours (I've witnessed them both).

In my own limited experience with this phenomenon, the women who are able to enjoy an orgasm (usually vaginal), in conjunction with squirting, enjoy those orgasms with an apparent intensity which can be quite frightening for the uninitiated guy assisting her in ferreting it out. The screams, cries, quaking limbs, etc., can be enough to cause her to involuntarily convulse herself right off the mattress!!!

Thus, while "squirting" and "cumming" generally occur contemporaneously (and squirting may even be dependent upon cumming), they are, in fact, very different sexual events.

My fist experience, I was 17 in my girl friends house, parents are home,, all I can say is OMG I was shocked when it happened so wasn't my girlfriend, hell I almost shit my pants,,
What I learned is this, optional equipment, yet not required, 2 beach towels, plastic sheets, 1 wet/dry shop vac, and most of all a defibrillator...

oh yes OP, squirting and cumming are different,, you lucky ladies,, if we men only knew how that felt...

Squirting is female ejaculate and by that definition its an orgasm (after reading Vyper's stuff I will alos add Its An Orgrasm For Me). I clench with every squirt/gush, and once I get to a certain point (dehyration where its nearly impossible to have any more fluild shot out of me) then I still cum without the fluid but definately with the strong clenching. I do it repeatedly, but its far different than a clitoria orgasm, anal orgasm... etc. You get the main jist. Oh, icing on the cake is to have two different orgasms at the same time (gspot with clitorial and I will have a body cum)

I think there's really two varieties of squirting, the steady stream, or the "gush" (think thumb on the end of the garden hose, loads of liquid through very small opening and it goes everywhere from the pressure). I do the gush thing more... the orgasm is the same in either form for me though.

Its not the end all, be all pleasure though. If you cum in other ways, good for you!

OH, how I love suirters!!

There's just something about seeing a woman enjoy herself THAT much, that she's convulsing violently and hyperventilating. And, when she finally regains her composure, it's like she's just recovering from an exorcism.

Nothing quite like a happy, relieved and very relaxed woman!

I too thought that I was possibly a squirter.. I had one incident I attribute to a good angle.. and get very wet very fast...but one weekend at a swingers party in a hotel cured me of my notion that I was a squirter Some of those women needed to have a "keep your eyes shut as the moaning gets louder" signs on their thighs. There were mattresses that needed to be flipped before 8pm.
So no.. squirting is not the same as cumming.

I think "Cuming" is a generic term, it means a woman having an orgasm ( any kind of orgasm).

Squirting, AKA Female ejaculation, is a special orgasm, you can keep cumming and cumming and making puddles and I really mean PUDDLES..



actually, just FYI, female ejaculation can happen without orgasm too. But it's much much better when they come together.

You sure it comes from the Urethra? I squirt and am pretty sure it comes from inside my vagina. I could be wrong as I'm not really analyzing the situation at the time it happens, but I've had it come pouring out of me when the guy pulls out. Not his cum, as he didn't...mine. It's not the same as the lube that's produced inside. It's clear and has no oder. It's like water.

Everyone has touched on all but the subject of why some women squirt and gush and others don't. I wasnt always a squirter and gusher. Not until a particular lover who knew how a womans body works. I had read a book about gushing and wanted to learn how with past lovers but no matter what we tried, it didnt happen. One thing I read was that initially the woman can feel pressure like the urge to pee so she holds back. This is when she should relax her muscles and just go with the feeling and most likely she will gush. As to how to get the G spot to the point of gushing or ejaculating, each woman is a little different, some may not need as intense a rhythem, but I found to get me started, it was best to start with the man using his fingers on me. A certain amount of pressure and also speed of strokes is needed for me to get there. Some women may not need as intense a stroke to get her started. However, once the G spot is primed, I will gush as long as his fingers are working on me or with****inside me. By the way, before anyone thinks to ask, I believe women can gush (I do) even if the guy is doing her anally. It just depends on the woman if she is comfortable with that.

I read that as well, from some experiance, after talking with my partner, it seems to work, though not fool proof...

Female ejaculation is prostate like fluid that is pushed out of the urethra (pee tube) which originates from the kidneys and the Paraurethral / Skenes glands ("female prostate"- located under the g-spot area) during sexual arousal. Fluid comes from the kidneys passing through the bladder to mix with the fluid coming from the "female prostate" or G-spot and it usually gushes or squirts out.

The two types of female sexual response fluids (cum) are clinically termed as "female prostate" and vaginal ejaculation fluids. The one most commonly seen in our culture is vaginal ejaculate, which lubricates the vaginal walls and oozes out during sexual arousal. Called, leukorrhea, it contains vaginal secretions from walls of the vagina.

This ejaculate comes from the Skenes glands (the glands that make up the g-spot) and bladder and is similar to prostate fluid in men. This is because the female g-spot is essentially the equivalent to the prostate in males.

Lets get the biggest myth out of the way- IT IS NOT URINE. Upon testing the liquid, sit has been have found that it contains levels of glucose (sugar), and an enzyme (prostate acid phosphatase), which is characteristic of a major component in semen. It is similar to the prostate fluid within male ejaculation but without the sperm. There are also two other substances contained in the fluid, commonly found in urine (urea and creatinine), which are found in trace amounts. It is a unique substance, and unlike the heavier and thicker fluid that you would typically see when a woman is "wet" or has had an orgasm.

Squirting, AKA Female ejaculation, is a special orgasm

squirting is NOT an orgasm.

i had plenty sexual experiences where hot liquid gushing out of me and me making a mess actually cut the edge off the intensity of the pleasure and killed my orgasm. it's distracting. so i do prefer it when it occurs during or right after the orgasm.

people have misconceptions about it. its very messy and u definitely have difficulty sleeping in the same bed once u r done. i've gushed enough before to drench thru two comforters and into the mattress, which means doing laundry each time it happens too, and letting ur mattress our to have air to dry and all that.

for a while i was considering vinyl mattress covers, but they make weird noises and reminds me of communist hospitals when i was a child... LOL... so nay, i dont think so... lol

think about when u r at someone's house and that happens... LOLOL.. i usually warn people.

i don't squirt each time i have sex, maybe 2 our of 5, but it doesn't make sex better or the orgasm harder, just different. and like i said, can totally kill the orgasm all together, which can be frustrating.

but the whole splitting hairs between having and orgasm and cumming, pleaaaaase, lets stop splittin hairs and getting stuck on semantics. what we most commonly refer to as 'cumming' is what we call having an orgasm. sure there r differences between men and women, mainly men ejaculate, but its still the same experience of having an orgasm, ejaculation or not... isnt it? i could be wrong, english is not my 1st language, but that has been my understanding so far

I can cum, but I don't squirt. I even had a guy behave like there was something wrong with me because I didn't. That was a mood-killer.

Cum=orgasm
Squirt= something some women do during sexual activity

Women can cum without squirting, and it seems that women can squirt without cumming, and some very talented ladies can do both at the same time.

Have a FWB and an exwife that would leave a lake in the bed they would squirt so much and there are so things I learned from them. The first time the cum it is really kind of thick with a very salty sweet taste and tremendous aroma that is such a turn on!! Then when they squirt it is projectile can come out for a foot or so and some times just splashes all over they kitty, very watery and very strong tasting and doesn't resemble the cum that I spoke of earlier. It is a matter of cumming and sexual satisfaction but what they told me it is like a serious release of pressure as they orgasm. I have to say that feeling the pressure as your having intercourse with some ont that squirts is amazing and the hot fluid that spews all over your body heighthens the sexual experience!!! How ever you meet some one and when your going downtown with her and she tells you she has a tendency to squirt wear a snorkel !!!!
hahahaha Just kidding but you do need to pay attention to what is going on to keep from haveing an embarassing situation.
