A Beginner’s Guide to Squirting: Part One

When writing a guide to squirting, there’s only one woman for the job: Lola Jean, sex educator and world record holder for volume squirting. 

Some of you may already know Lola Jean from our squirting workshop back in March, but for those who don’t, you’re in for a treat.

Please welcome our queen of the squirting masterclass. Today she’s uncovering the mysteries behind squirting; whether you’re a squirt newbie or master, Lola has everything you need to know on this quirky and fascinating topic.

Say hello to the expert, and enjoy everything there is to glean from our educational squirt blog.

Lola Jean – World Record Squirt Holder

I have a complicated relationship with squirting — and I am the face of squirting. The face of squirting on faces. Something that brings me such joy is also a point of frustration. It is for that reason I set the world record for squirting in the first place.

Yes, you heard right: World Record Squirting (solo). That means there was no one else on that stage but me. Just me and my hand — and I never penetrated myself once. I can disprove science with a flick of my wrist. It only took me 25 seconds to eject 1250ml from my body. Science said that 800ml was the max someone could squirt — so now you can’t talk about squirting without talking about me!

If you’re asking “How to make someone squirt?”, first, ask yourself “Why

Naturally, after you hear this, you’re curious. You want to know how you can do it. You want to know how you can make someone else do it. Somehow, squirting became almost entirely about cis male pleasure. How does something that comes out of a person with a vulva’s  body – due to a reaction from their body – have anything to do with the person they are partnering with?

Well, because many people view sex as a horse race. A video game. Advancing to the next levels and setting high scores. While sexual achievements and first times are fun to celebrate, let the first thing you take away from this article be: you should not pressure anyone to squirt, or to try to squirt, including yourself. If it’s something you would like to do, ask yourself if it’s for you, or for your partner/s. Ask yourself and ask your partner/s – why do you want to experience squirting?

Vulvas are complicated in the most delicious way. There isn’t one way that will get you to squirt, just like there isn’t one way to orgasm. There may be one way that works for a lot of people, but if anyone tells you they’ve made every person they’ve been with squirt – I’m more inclined to think they’re less interested in reading your body and more playing to their own ego.

As a culture, we’re OBSESSED with squirting

It’s probably because science can’t quite explain it, and it’s a visual manifestation of pleasure from someone with a vulva. 

As it turns out, there’s more to squirting than meets the eye. While there is involuntary squirting (a knee jerk reaction), there is also voluntary squirting where the squirter has an active role in the act. Often, the squirter is going to have some level of involvement in assisting their body to do so, even if you’re “making them squirt”. Shocking, right?

What does squirting feel like?

So, what does squirting actually feel like? I mean… it feels good. It feels great. When I squirt on its own (without an orgasm), it feels like a release. It’s like an itch that has been scratched or the descent from the top of a rollercoaster.

When I orgasm AND squirt together, it makes that orgasm extra special. That said, after squirting with consistency for a few years, the pleasure isn’t the mind-bending experience I think most hype it up to be. I’d rank a cervical orgasm much higher in terms of pleasure. Though, when that happens, I’m usually squirting too. Once you turn on the faucet, it’s difficult to turn it off.

My point being: we shouldn’t tick off boxes. We should enjoy the experience and allow ourselves to be surprised. When we pressure our partner/s or ourselves or treat squirting as a litmus test, we’re less likely to be in tune with where they, and we, find comfort and pleasure. Afterall, pleasure is why you’re interested in squirting – right?

What causes squirting?

Squirting is when fluid is released, propelled by muscles in a person’svaginal area, to create a ‘projection’ effect. The amount of fluid produced can vary in terms of volume, and how much it ‘shoots’ out can vary according to the strength of muscle contractions. Still, effectively, if there’s an expression of fluid in this manner during genital stimulation, it’s squirting.

Note that the fluid is not pee, and is also different from the usual vaginal fluids produced for lubrication during sex. If that sounds vague, it’s because it is. Scientists don’t really know too much about why this fluid is produced or what, in biological terms, it’s for!

Note that we said ‘genital stimulation’ there – not orgasm. A squirting orgasm is something you often see in porn, and it’s certainly likely that a person who squirts will squirt when they climax, but squirting at other points during sexual stimulation is also possible. 

So, is squirting an orgasm?

Not in and of itself. An orgasm may be accompanied by squirting, or it may not, and squirting may happen at other times during clitoral, vaginal, and anal stimulation before a climax.

How To Squirt

Let’s say your desire to squirt, or assist in your partner’s squirting, is not entirely born from  ego. The question then becomes: how do you do it? More importantly, can everyone do it?

Again, I’m a professional athlete when it comes to squirting, and I didn’t even discover it until my mid to late twenties. It’s going to happen when it’s going to happen. If you want to hack squirting and understand the bodily mechanics, that will be more on the end of the vulva-owner.

The key to squirting isn’t ‘just relaxing’. There is a series of squeezing (doing Kegels) as well as pushing (flowering out the vaginal canal) that is a part of the squirting process. Sometimes it’s natural, and sometimes you decidedly have to assist in the act. That squeezing and pushing not only aids in the process but also can increase the pleasure and sensation.

Can everyone squirt?

I believe that everyone with a vulva can squirt if they have a strong enough pelvic floor and relationship with their vagina.

There has to be a certain level of arousal, comfort, and hydration. The amount of liquid consumed does not directly equate to the amount of squirt one can produce, but if you’re dehydrated, it’s not going to work in your favour. 

If you needed some extra motivation to drink more water, you’re welcome.

Is squirt pee?

There’s some scientific inconsistencies on this question, and there certainly isn’t a “one answer fits all” solution to this question. The liquid expelled during squirting is usually colourless, odourless, and watery in consistency. Some studies have shown that squirt can contain some of the same components found in pee, and also that it can contain some of the same components found in semen.

However, it does not feel like you’re urinating or have to pee.

While we’re on the subject of pee: if you want to attempt to shame someone who squirts by suggesting that squirt is another perfectly natural and necessary bodily fluid, then maybe don’t 👏 fuck 👏 that 👏 person 👏.

I have both peed and squirted on people on multiple occasions, and I can tell you they are different acts and liquids. The people I have peed and squirted on (consensually) can tell you they are different acts and liquids. 

Too often this pee question is used to yuck on the process of squirting. Let’s not be doing that.
