General consensus seems to be that squirting or gushing is the release of some fluid during or just before orgasm. However, not all women experience any sort of ejaculation of liquid at orgasm. Another study found that those who reported orgasming from inside the vagina ie, G-spot were more likely to report a spurt of fluid at the moment of orgasm. Similarly to the existence or non-existence of the G-spot , the chemical makeup of the liquid squirted, or female ejaculate which may or may not be something different , has long been the subject of debate.

Let’s talk about squirting: Why is it important, and what does it feel like?
It can happen when a female becomes sexually aroused, but there is not necessarily an association with having an orgasm. Scientists do not fully understand female ejaculation, and there is limited research on how it works and its purpose. Female ejaculation is perfectly normal, although researchers remain divided on how many people experience it. In this article, we look at the current thinking on the mechanisms, purpose, and frequency of female ejaculation.
Female ejaculation is characterized as an expulsion of fluid from the Skene's gland at the lower end of the urethra during or before an orgasm. It is also known colloquially as squirting or gushing , although research indicates that female ejaculation and squirting are different phenomena, with squirting being attributed to a sudden expulsion of liquid that partly comes from the bladder and contains urine. There have been few studies on female ejaculation.
