Squirting is when a vagina expels fluids of various quantities and compositions from the urethra during sexual arousal and orgasm. A "squirter" is a person with a vagina who can ejaculate—the one who can squirt.

The composition and origins of the liquid expelled during squirting is not well defined. The liquid released is usually clear, odorless and colorless and can come out in large quantities. People who enjoy being squirted on also report that it tastes different to urine.

Medical professional disagree about whether or not urine is part of the squirt or if some is sometimes released as well another liquid. A recent study by Japanese researchers in 2022 suggests that the liquid could originate in the bladder and may contain urine as well as fluid from the Skene's glands (female prostate) but a consensus has not yet been reached.

Some medical professionals also make a distinction between squirting and female ejaculation. Female ejaculate is thought by some professionals to be the release of a white, milky fluid that contains some of the same components as semen (source) but, again, not all professionals agree and the terms are generally used interchangeably.
