A friend says he knows a female who "squirts." what is that about? Is it just urine? Or is there another fluid women secrete with sex/orgasm?

In brief: Amrita

is the Sanskrit word for the female ejaculate fluid that is secreted when a woman orgasms.
It is usually associated with the G-spot, but some women also claim to have this secretion through clitoral stimulation. The G-Spot is a bundle of nerves located on the front wall of the vagina 2-3 inches from the opening and can be activated with a 'come hither' or 'windsheild-wiper' motion of the finger.

Certainly an accepted interpretation, however anatomic existence "G spot", in spite of plenty of hype, has never been proven. Orgasmic response of Skene's glands is only sufficient to produce very little flui, which in itself would be insufficient to squirt. Some women "squirters" produce a few ounces of of orgasmic squirt which has to be 90% + urine.

In brief: Both

Female ejaculation was initially thought to be simply a urinary response to orgasm.
However, more evidence from human sexuality actually recognize it as a mix of gland secretion (skenes) and mild urinary leakage. It is an involuntary response to orgasm. Usual is a few drops to slightly more. The role of the elusive "g-spot" is also unclear in this but some authorities state it is the main factor.

In brief: It is urine

Some women experience a bladder cotraction at time of orgasm.
This can result in urine squirting out.

In brief: Female ejaculation

Sam, you can look this up for yourself.
Not everyone believes that it happens, but there is some research to indicate that women have something sort of like a prostate gland that releases similar chemicals with orgasm.
