Big news for squirters: a group of scientists who studied female ejaculation are claiming the liquid that comes out of women’s bodies during sex is just pee. This development is exciting or gross depending on your feelings about, well, pee.As VICE reports, the scientists gave pelvic ultrasound scans to seven women who had previously expelled a cup full of liquid during sex. The ladies were scanned after urination and “after a variable time of sexual excitation.” The scientists were able to determine that the liquid was coming from the bladder – like pee.The researchers explained:

“The present data based on ultrasonographic bladder monitoring and biochemical analyses indicate that squirting is essentially the involuntary emission of urine during sexual activity, although a marginal contribution of prostatic secretions to the emitted fluid often exists.”

Past research has said that the fluid is not quite urine, but does have some of the same components as pee, such as urea, because the fluid is produced by glandular tissue surrounding the ureathra at the opening of the vagina called the urethral sponge.If you still need to satiate your thirst for knowledge about squirting, intrepid pal over at the The Frisky has a 7-step guide to decide if you’re peeing or squirting, complete with a taste test.
