Squirting is like anal. It seems like everyone’s doing it, but it really just comes down to what kind of porn you’re watching. Thanks to its frequent showing in porn, similar to anal‘s recent resurgence, squirting has hit the mainstream and it’s not going anywhere fast. But the one big question on everyone’s mind is; how do you do it? If you’ve been wondering how to squirt, you’re in luck. We’ve got all the best tips, tricks, and products to unlock your favorite new sensation. 

What is squirting? 

Spoiler alert: It’s not pee. And it’s not the lubrication the vagina produces when aroused or engaging in sexual activity either. Squirting, or female ejaculation, is just a watery fluid expelled through the urethra (the tube that takes urine from the bladder out of the body). 

The fluid itself is a combination of filtered blood plasma and secretions—which doesn’t sound sexy at all. To be honest, there isn’t a ton of information out there involving female ejaculation. Experts still aren’t entirely sure where the fluid comes from, or what it’s fully made up of (thanks, science).

Why do you squirt? 

Experts believe it happens when fluids build up in the erectile tissue of the urethral sponge and need to be released. However, it doesn’t happen naturally for everyone. In fact, according to the BBC, somewhere between 10 to 54 percent of women have experienced squirting. So don’t feel bad if you’ve yet to join the party. 

How to squirt for the first time, from prep to clean up

For some, squirting might be a run-of-the-mill occurrence, but for those that have never experienced it, it can be a surprising (and messy) show. Before you take on your squirting adventure, there are a few things you should do—and buy—just in case. 

1) Get your bed ready 

Everyone ejaculates differently. Some might shoot out, squirt, gush, drip, etc. The one underlying fact? When you squirt liquid is definitely coming out, so you’ll wanna protect your sheets and your mattress. 

An easy way to do that? Snag a splash pad like this reusable quilted one, and a full mattress pad you can leave on your bed for extra protection against liquids and stains. 

2) Set yourself up for arousal success

Squirting takes a little work, which means doing a few things before you get into it. We’re talking about setting the ambiance, getting yourself in a position for foreplay, and even looking into some arousal aids to help you reach your peak as easily as possible. 

We recommend lighting a few candles, like these ones from Boy Smells, and throwing on some mood music. Any visual aids you might wanna use to get yourself ready should be chosen beforehand, and if you’re with a partner, maybe invest in some body-safe candles for a spicier vibe. 

3) Our favorite products for squirting 

And we’ve got a few. We love the Lelo brand for its clit stimulating toys designed with the brand’s signature sonic wave technology. The Sila Cruise fits perfectly over the clit and delivers mind-numbing waves of pleasure right where you want them. While the Sona 2 Cruise takes care of the more experienced toy users with ease. And if you’re looking for a toy that hits the clit and penetrates as well, the award-winning Soraya 2 is the way to go. 

If toys aren’t your thing, or you already have a favorite, why not try these topicals? Quim’s plant-based serums have been designed to help you achieve your max pleasure with the best ingredients possible. The brand’s smooth operator serum is a blend of CBD and plant-derived emulsifiers that increases blood flow and promotes pelvic relaxation, decreasing inflammation and pain. 

If you’re a lucky California resident, snag the brand’s beloved THC serum—night moves—designed to intensify sensations, increase libido, and support a proactive vaginal health routine (also available in a latex-safe version)

Remember, squirting, like all sexual acts, is about having fun. If you can’t do it, at least you’ll have an amazingly fun time learning about your body. However, just because you can’t squirt the first time you try doesn’t mean you never will. Practice, relaxation, and solid fantasies will help you find your way.
