Squirting is something you might have heard about from friends, seen in porn, or wanted to try with your partner. But is squirting real? What is it? Female ejaculate is a small amount of thick whitish fluid secreted around the time of orgasm. It comes from the glands within the erectile tissue around the urethra that are comparable to the male prostate, and it even contains prostate-specific antigen PSA, different PSA 1, 2. Incontinence during sex can be caused by an overstimulated bladder, or a weak pelvic floor.
