I am not currently sexually active so I typically masturbate using clitoral stimulation only but recently I've been "leaking" during/immediately after orgasm. I don't think I'm "squirting" only because one, I don't stimulate my g spot and two, I've NEVER EVER squirted before. I empty my bladder before masturbation then halfway through I empty it again (it fills up so quick! could that be from arousal?) and as soon as I come I leak and it feels like I'm peeing. I heard that it's impossible to urinate during orgasm but others say it is possible in women. I don't understand why this is happening! I'm young and I don't have any bladder control problems and before this all happened I could masturbate on a full bladder and never leak or even feel the need to. I have been extremely aroused lately and recently started masturbating with my a vibrator mainly on and around my urethra if that has anything to do with it.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. This can be due to squirting or cumming and does not look like urination as bladder does not fill so fast.

Cumming means a sudden spurt of fluid released in response to sexual excitement like ejaculation in males.

It is possible to have both at the same time and sometimes one may not be accompanying the other. Squirting means expulsion of noticeable amounts of clear fluid from the paraurethral glands around the urethra in females.

It is close to the urethra and not clitoris. It is mostly due to extensive and targeted G-spot stimulus, internal and external clitoral stimulus and sometimes combination of the two.

Both of these are normal physiologic phenomenon and there is nothing much to worry if it is happening.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
