Women respond to controversial orgasm study with #NotPee hashtag
A few people even upload evidence in the form of soiled mattresses.

To most people, encountering a woman who can ejaculate is sort of like encountering a gun-rights advocate at a Park Slope beer garden: It’s a rare, mythical form of being, oft discussed but rarely encountered in the flesh.
The mythical G-spot gusher, however, was supposedly debunked last week when researchers released a study determining that the fluids emitted during ejaculation were urine rather than actual ejaculate.
Many women were underwhelmed by the study, for which the sample group included only seven women. Others were positively enraged by the temerity of researchers suggesting that their orgasms weren’t really orgasms. Some sex-positive ladies, inspired by a blog post by sex-toy reviewer Epiphora, decided to prove Squirting Truthers wrong, debunking the female-ejaculation debunk on Twitter with the hashtag #notpee.
Some of the women pursued a classically mathematical model of inquiry. If squirting didn’t feel like pee, and peeing didn’t feel like squirting, then quod erat demonstrandum, squirting couldn’t be pee:
Others were a bit more subjective.
A few people decided to upload evidence in the form of soiled mattresses. Much like UFO or Bigfoot truthers, however, photographic documentation was too blurry to be convincing.

Even the Daily Dot tech section was split between Team #Pee and Team #Notpee.
But whether squirting is pee or something else, one thing is crystal clear:
So let’s all stop fighting and go out and get a snack or something. Anyone up for some Gushers?
