Squirting vs Gushing

Can anyone tell me the real difference between the two?

Updates:
Just trying to see how common these are. Do women typically produce an abundance of vaginal liquid when they orgasm? Or is it more likely to be a dry orgasm?

  • Squirting is a projection of fluid, like a squirt gun. Gushing is a flow of fluid, like you're pouring something out of a bottle.

    They can also have different anatomical sources as well. Science doesn't have a solid answer on female ejaculation, but it's generally argued to either come from the urethra or the Skene's gland and is released in a narrow stream. Gushing can also come from these sources in the form of a flow of fluid that just runs down instead of projecting, essentially a weak squirt, but a gush can also come from the vagina itself as a flow of lubrication.

    The fluid in a squirt/ejaculation is argued to be either urine (held by dissenting views) or some secretion from the various glands in the region, but a gush from the vagina would be vaginal lubrication.

    In general, gushing is a broader term than squirting.
