Squirters Have Flooded Porn. But How Many of Them Are Faking It?

In the past few years, the popularity of squirting has exploded like Old Faithful. But many squirt fanatics think their favorite squirters are just pulling party tricks

Squirting has always been a bit of a mystery. Is it common? Is it pee? Can I do it? Its presence in porn is no exception. Even though it’s been incredibly popular for a while — it’s actually one of Pornhub’s 20 most-searched categories — there’s much debate over how real it is, and plenty of fans believe its growing popularity has led self-proclaimed squirters to fake it for the clicks. 

Suspicions of falsehood are particularly prevalent in the world of amateur porn, where performers are often accused of using studio porn squirting hacks — or even just peeing — to feign their “first-time” squirt videos. On the subreddit r/firstSquirtingVideos, one commenter wasn’t impressed by u/LailaRae’s “action shot” writing, “That looks like a piss stream, not a squirt… are you lying?” In another Reddit thread, a suspicious user mentioned having a girlfriend who would squirt “differently” from the way women do it in porn. Meanwhile, in r/Sex, an anonymous camgirl described being guilted by viewers who can supposedly tell when she’s faking an orgasm. 

This kind of skepticism has long been a part of the squirting world. In 2013 — the same year Pornhub picked up squirting as a major trend — a redditor mourned the lost golden days of squirt in a r/AskReddit post. “You can tell when it’s just pee,” they wrote. “Five years ago, [squirting] was this unique, rare and special skill. Today, everyone can do it every time they cum, with great intensity and great volume.” 

Such is the tragedy of the squirt. As these comments suggest, squirt connoisseurs can be almost obnoxiously skeptical of amateur or non-mainstream performers, fearing the fakeness of mainstream porn. Sometimes, though, their skepticism is warranted. 

Per a recent discussion on r/CamGirlProblems, the “big [secrets]” of on-camera squirting are “water bottle tricks” or “filling up your vagina with water and vinegar solution” for “the huge, water spout, geyser kind” of squirting. Other ill-advised posts on forums like Quora suggest simply learning to pee in spurts if you want to fake squirt. Few of these porn tricks and piss hacks involve actually learning to squirt, of course. “Guys don’t know where the squirt is supposed to come from,” u/taksboots wrote in the r/CamGirlProblems discussion. “They just wanna see it.” 

Some of the most popular squirters of our time feel differently, though. “I think squirting is actually more common than people realize,” popular performer and lifelong squirter Daisy Ducati tells me. Which is true. Although some might not know they contain the power to squirt — they might mistake their squirt for normal wetness or be nervous to trigger it during orgasm — 69 percent of women between the ages of 18 and 39 have ejaculated at least once in their lives. Other estimates put that figure at between 10 to 50 percent. 

“For most women, it requires a certain type of orgasm that doesn’t always happen during sex with a partner,” Ducati explains. “I think more women would squirt if they were exploring more ways to achieve orgasm.” In some cases, porn performers do explore so that they can squirt more fantastically — Mary Rider tells me that, although she’s a natural squirter, she’s “learned to know [her] body” so that during a live show or porn taping she is “able to flood the screen.” 

In fact, every performer I spoke to told me that their squirts were real and they, too, dislike faked squirting. “Super-squirty” Lola Fontaine, who’s been posting awe-inspiring, home-filmed squirt videos to Twitter and OnlyFans for about six months, can even spot a fake herself. “I watch porn and can feel sometimes when it’s not real,” she says. As for her own squirts, swears that they’re the real deal. “I watch that I stay hydrated, but that’s the only thing [I do].”

All three women maintained that anyone with a vagina has the power to squirt. “Few women know their body and how to stimulate it to feel pleasure,” Rider reiterates. “People need to know that with good stimulation, intimacy and awareness, every woman [and theoretically, anyone with a vagina] is able to squirt and flood the bedroom with her own orgasm.” This is often echoed by sex experts, many of whom urge that as long as you have the anatomy, you have the capacity to squirt. 

With that said, there are still ways viewers can distinguish between real and fake squirts. First, don’t expect them to be Old Faithful all the time. “If you watch a lot of porn, you’ve probably seen a woman’s vagina spout like a geyser,” reads a Men’s Health article from 2018. “While some women do squirt a lot, others dribble, while some make puddles that look like they wet the bed.” In other words, a real squirt might look less theatrical than a fake one, though this won’t always be the case. 

Another popular squirt-spotting method is to notice whether the liquid is coming from the urethra or vagina. “If something which looks like water is coming out of the opening of the vagina, especially after a choppy video edit,” says a rather impassioned blog by Condom Depot, “this is a fake, since female ejaculation occurs from the urethra which is near the clitoris.” (Actually, it’s about 2.5 centimeters below the clit.) 

Knowing all this — and that many more women squirt than we realize — we can unravel at least some of squirting’s apparent rise. It may not be that more performers are faking their squirt, per se — though some probably are — rather, it may just be that more of them have discovered how to do it (and capitalized on that niche). Furthermore, does it even matter if the squirt is real? For the most part, porn is a performance that’s meant to entertain. So long as you got a little wet during that ride, who cares where the water comes from?
