Since Antiquity, women who expulse a large quantity of liquid during sexual stimulation have remained a mystery. This phenomena is usually called "squirting". Many physicians have proposed different explications, however, there are very few scientific publications and their conclusions are discordant. Today, squirting is fashionable in the media, and some recent studies have brought new information. Through medical publications, we present the conclusions concerning the origin and the nature of squirting, the psychological experience of these squirting women and the feelings of their partners.
