IT’S something we’ve all heard of – and some even claim to have seen – but is female ejaculation a real thing?

If you’ve watched any porn lately (let’s be honest with ourselves here) then you’re probably no stranger to the concept.

But “she-jaculation” is actually not that common – it’s mainly just a fantasy for some people.

That’s not to say it doesn’t happen – around a third of women report it happening at some point in their lives, according to sex therapist Dr Pam Spurr.

“Female ejaculation – or squirting – is now a huge part of porn because people are fascinated by it,” she told The Sun Online.

“But it’s actually not that common.

“Around a third of women report that at some point – maybe only once in their life – they’ve experienced ‘squirting’.

“This is where fluid squirts/gushes out of their vagina during orgasm.”

But chances are, if it is something you experience between the sheets, it’s more likely to be pee than vaginal fluids…sorry.

“Although there’s not a lot of research, it suggests that in most cases it’s probably urine being ejaculated,” Pam added.

“So, essentially, squirting is when a woman’s bladder empties on orgasm.

“In some cases the ejaculate has also contained other naturally occurring body-chemicals.

“Sexologists are adamant that women shouldn’t buy into porn portrayals of ‘she-jaculation’ being a ‘must-experience’ sensation.

“Although some women say they experience a more intense orgasm when this happens, many report no difference at all.”

So – now we’ve probably ruined your view on sex for a little while – why might a woman pee when she’s having sex?

The main answer is urinary incontinence – but there are many things that can cause it.

Urinary incontinence is not uncommon among women, especially as you age.

Around 60 per cent of women who suffer from it report leaking wee when they have sex.

There are many reasons a woman may suffer urinary incontinence.

Age, menopause, pregnancy and childbirth can all cause the pelvic floor to weaken, making it harder to hold in a pee.

To combat this make sure you are doing your pelvic floor exercises to keep the muscles down there strong.

being overweight can also put added strain on the muscles, so make sure you keep yourself within the healthy BMI range.

Another reason a woman may experience incontinence is when an activity, like sex, puts stress on the bladder.


An overactive bladder can also lead to the uncontrollable need to pee when nature calls…no matter when it calls.

This is called urgency urinary incontinence and occurs when the bladder contracts too early.

Normally, our body registers we need to wee when our bladder is half full and you can wait until you’ve reached the bathroom.

But if you have urgency urinary incontinence your bladder will start contracting when it feels you need to pee, whether you like it or not.

If you are suffering incontinence, whether it’s disrupting your sex life or not, speak to a GP about ways to manage it.
