Whether you’re new to squirting or you’ve always wanted to try it (and weren’t sure how), masturbating with a vibrator can be a great way to open the floodgates.

Learning to squirt with a vibrator provides an opportunity to practice doing it on your own, without the pressure of having to “perform” with a partner during sex.

It also enables you to explore your body (without feeling rushed and at your own pace) to discover the types of stimulation and sensations that will cause you to squirt.

This is important because there is more than one way to achieve that goal.

For many women, the key to squirting is G-spot stimulation — but for others, clitoral stimulation is just as important, if not more.

If you’ve ever wondered how to make yourself squirt with a vibrator, we’ll tell you what you need to know to get started.

Editor’s Note: This article is part of our How To Use A Vibrator and Everything Vibrators hubs, in-depth and evolving resources that comprehensively explore all aspects of vibrators from the different types and how to use them, to materials and safety — created to help you achieve the sexual pleasure you deserve.

What Is Squirting (And Who Can Do It)

What Is Squirting And Can Anyone Do It?

Squirting is often known as female ejaculation — although the two terms actually refer to slightly different things — and it can often coincide with an orgasm (although not always).

In the simplest terms, squirting is a release of fluid from the urethra due to sexual stimulation of the vulva or vagina, with or without orgasm.

While some might try to deny it, squirt is pee mixed with female ejaculate released by the Skene’s glands, which are located within the urethral sponge on either side of the urethra.

Granted, the composition of each woman’s squirt differs based on her own biology and it may contain more (or less) urine than another’s — which is why the color of squirt can range from clear to pale yellow.

Squirting is a completely natural and reflexive process that all people with vulvas and Skene’s glands can practice.

For some, squirting comes easy — no pun intended.

Others may have to practice and work at it, with no guarantee of success.

As we mentioned earlier, although squirting is often associated with orgasm, it can and does happen independently of it.

Additionally, the amount of squirt varies from person to person, as well.

Some gush fluid while others trickle.

In a way, squirting orgasms are sort of like snowflakes: No two are exactly alike.

Squirting With A Vibrator

In my own experience, squirting with a vibrator feels like a sudden release of tension following a long and slow build-up of increasing sexual excitement.

It is a completely normal response to my body’s pleasure centers, just as it is for anyone else who squirts.

Squirting with a vibrator might take a bit of practice and focus, but trust me, it’s highly worth the time it might take to get there.

If it is your first time, however, don’t set your expectations too high.

It might take many tries to achieve, especially since squirting can be just as much of a head game as it is a bodily function.

As Dr. Susan Milstein, a sexual health educator, who sits on our medical review board, shared in our video below, “Our brain is one of the biggest things that can inhibit how turned on we are.”

She explained that the things we’re thinking about can affect how our bodies respond to stimulation (which can affect our ability to squirt):


Sometimes, taking the pressure off of doing something is exactly what’s needed to achieve it.

  • Which Vibrator Should I Use For Squirting?

Beyond getting yourself mentally prepared, which we’ll talk about more below, you’ll want to use a vibrator that provides the type of stimulation you need.

There is no “best squirting vibrator” because everyone responds to sexual stimulation differently.

If your G-spot is the key to your strongest orgasms, we personally tested the Hot Octopuss Kurve and recommend it as a good one to try — especially since it can do double-duty as a clit stimulator, too!

For those who prefer clitoral stimulation only, the Lora DiCarlo Baci and LELO SILA are staff favorites, as well, offering completely unique sensations that are clit-focused.

Dual stimulation can also lead to squirting orgasms, as I discovered when I tested and reviewed the Osé 2 from Lora DiCarlo.

That futuristic vibrator had me squirting in less than 5 minutes.

My point: The “best” squirting vibrator will be the one that provides you with the most pleasure — whatever that happens to be.

That’s the one you should use.

How To Prepare

How To Prepare For Squirting

There are a few things you should do before you practice squirting with a vibrator.

Before you get started, you’ll want to:

  • Maintain your hydration
  • Set the mood
  • Set your expectations
  • Protect your bedding
  • Urinate before you begin stimulation

This is more of a general rule for living, but make sure you’re staying hydrated and drinking enough water throughout the day.

Setting the mood is another important aspect of preparation.

Reduce distractions by turning your phone on silent.

Light some candles, put on sexy music or watch a movie on Adam & Eve Plus, and let yourself get into the mood.

Don’t think about work, your grocery list, or the mountain of other things you need to do this week.

As we mentioned earlier, keeping your head in the game will make it easier to squirt — if it happens.

On that note, however, don’t focus intently on squirting, as it can create unnecessary pressure that prevents it from happening.

Keep your expectations in check and realize that it may or may not happen.

Additionally, a little squirting prep now will save you a lot of clean-up time in the future.

I recommend laying a towel down before you start playing with your vibrator, that way when you’re done, you won’t have to air out your bed or sleep on a wet mattress.

If you’re really worried about leakage or if you’ve squirted before and you know it tends to gush, you can lay down a small waterproof pad — such as those used under crib sheets.

Small waterproof pads are easy to wash and they’re a convenient way to deal with any mess later on.

Finally, make sure to urinate before stimulation begins. You’ll want to start with an empty bladder for optimal comfort.

How To Do it

How To Make Yourself Squirt With A Vibrator

If you’re ready to begin, grab the toy-compatible lube of your choice and work toward bringing yourself to orgasm with your vibrator.

Many women squirt by building up tension through G-spot stimulation alone — and if that works for you, it’s what you should start with.

In my personal experience, however, I’ve found that clitoral stimulation makes squirting better.

A vibrator that stimulates the G-spot along with the clitoris, such as a rabbit, will provide double the pleasure, likely increasing your chances of squirting at the same time.

Regardless of the type of vibrator you use, I highly recommend that you try edging.

Edging is the process of bringing yourself to the brink of orgasm and then holding off, only to start all over again.

This builds increasing sexual tension over a long period, resulting in an extremely strong orgasm once it’s finally released.

This is also why we advise you to urinate before you begin stimulation — so you can take your time while edging for as long as needed, and comfortably so.

What often works for me is starting with clitoral stimulation: I arouse my vulva externally first before exploring vaginal penetration and G-spot stimulation.

Combining that technique with edging allows me to bring my arousal to its peak, over and over again, until I’m ready to let go and have my orgasm.

Many people who squirt find it helpful to “bear down” as they approach orgasm, which involves pushing your pelvic floor muscles in a way that’s similar to what you’d do while urinating.

This can be combined with a sudden increase in vibrator speed, triggering a hard and fast climax once you’re ready — and with any luck, the release of squirt.

Stimulation of the G-spot, which is in the general vicinity of the Skene’s glands, can provoke a feeling that’s similar to the “need to pee” sensation.

If you feel this, don’t hesitate to lean in and let yourself flow.

Conclusion

In Conclusion

Squirting with a vibrator may take some patience and practice, but it is highly achievable with any toy that offers the type of stimulation you need to reach orgasm.

No matter what type of vibrator you reach for, my best advice is to try edging to create lots of sexual tension and anticipation in your body.

When the release finally happens, it might just start a flood.

Remember too, that it’s completely okay if squirting doesn’t happen! Keep trying and with time, it still might.

What matters most is enjoying the practice. Anything beyond that is a bonus.
