Is Squirting Actually Just Pee?
Asking for a friend.
Carina Hsieh
You’re at brunch with your BFF (the one who overshares and you love her for it) when she mentions how her latest hookup made her orgasm so many GD times she had to strip her sheets at 3 a.m. because they were soaking wet.

“Uh, you mean you peed your bed?” you ask.

“No,” she explains, “squirting, as in gushing during orgasm, is totally different from pee.” “I don’t think so,” you counter. And then you’re both whipping out your phones to prove each other wrong. But after scrolling through hundreds of articles, neither of you can find a definitive answer.

What kind of effed-up sorcery is this?
